O’Reilly Demands Liberals Condemn Death Threats Against Wisconsin Republicans. So Will He Condemn Death Threats Against Obama, Liberals And Others On Fox Nation?

Reported by Ellen - March 14, 2011 -

Bill O’Reilly took to the airwaves last week and gravely reported on death threats received by Republican state senators in Wisconsin. He said “the situation is symptomatic of the bitter nationwide war going on between Republican cost cutters and Democratic pro-union forces. There are hard feelings on both sides… But death threats and the destruction of property have to be prosecuted.” Funny, though, he only seemed to find threats against Republicans. We’d like to suggest he take a stroll around Fox Nation which is a regular hang out for those who like to talk about killing President Obama, liberals, Muslims and more.

O’Reilly contended that the “left wing press” is partly at fault for “whipp(ing) up its crowd into a fury… We have ways in our system to deal with unjust laws… but this violence stuff? Troubling. And should be condemned by all loyal Americans. We’ll see if the left-wing press does that. I doubt it.”

Nice way to suggest that left-wingers are not loyal Americans, McCarthy - I mean O’Reilly. But if you believe it is so important for the media to avoid whipping up crowds into a fury and to condemn talk of violence, then I know you will want to have a word with Fox Nation editor Jesse Watters about the discussions of violence we find rampant there.

In fact, if you want to avoid looking like a complete hypocrite, you will immediately condemn Fox Nation in your next Talking Points.

But I doubt you will.
