In his Talking Points commentary last night, Bill O’Reilly leveled a thinly-veiled threat to Hillary Clinton about Media Matters – while crusading on behalf of those victimized white, male Christians in America!
O’Reilly focused on Hillary Clinton’s announcement that she’s running for president. After a mostly critical review of her record, O’Reilly began trying to whip up white resentment and victimhood, especially among men:
O’REILLY: This country is in trouble, economically and overseas. While the left will never admit that, it’s true. And whoever the next president is, is going to inherit one big mess. The jihadists are threatening millions of people. Iran is close to having a nuclear weapon. Working Americans are still struggling to make money in the marketplace and our traditional American values are under siege nearly everywhere.
If you’re a Christian or a white man in the U.S.A. it’s open season on you. Therefore Hillary Clinton has an advantage. She can run a general campaign, 'first woman in the White House' and ‘I’m going to help you!' by increasing the entitlement society. It will take a very articulate and tough-minded Republican to defeat her.
One final thing, we at The Factor, as I said, we’re going to be fair to Hillary Clinton. But we’re going to be tough, as we are on all political candidates. I don’t think gender matters one bit. And if this war on women business is resurrected we’ll have something to say about it.
Because nothing will persuade women to vote against Hillary like playing gender politics against her, I'm sure!
Then O’Reilly went after Media Matters. Apparently, he went off script in order to do so. The text on the screen as he spoke read, "Mrs. Clinton would be well advised to distance herself from groups that use despicable and dishonest tactics to attack opponents." On the air, O'Reilly ripped Media Matters:
O'REILLY: Also Mrs. Clinton would be well advised, well advised to distance herself from Media Matters and the other guttersnipe organizations who use despicable, dishonest tactics to attack those with whom they disagree. If you embrace the smear merchants, Mrs. Clinton, we will have something to say about it.
Do you think O’Reilly’s threat about Media Matters might have something to do with the fact that the organization just published a free ebook about O’Reilly’s fabrications called, “Killing Truth?”
Watch it below, from last night’s The O’Reilly Factor.
Great analysis… as usual.
Well, that’s not what he was saying Feb. 2014 when he quipped, “There’s got to be some downside to having a woman President, right? Something, something that may not fit the office, correct?” But now he’s saying that he doesn’t think gender matters despite his past words that show otherwise.
BOR claims that he will be fair with Hillary. However, right off the bat, he’s already outed his bias against her by claiming that she will be undermining traditional American values and that she will be going after Christians and/or white men because they are Christains and/or white men. And he tosses out the idea that she wants to expand the entitlement society which he knows is red meat to FOX “news” viewers. BOR is up there claiming there is no war on women while totally pimping a war on white men and Christians. projection, BOR (aka typical FOX “news” spin).
BOR isn’t interested in treating Hillary fairly – he has an agenda which involves him keeping taxes low for his tax bracket, keeping his wealthy guy loopholes and keeping the country’s values so that they fit HIS beliefs.
As to his remark about Media Matters, yeah, Ellen, that was totally about their eBook, “Killing Truth”. Cracks me up how BOR dosen’t have the cajones to tell his viewers about it. LOL!
He knows Hillary will not give an exclusive interview with the rapidly aging, Hannocchio.
Chris Wallace is most likely to get the interview.
You mean like Fox “News?”
No Dick Morris, Dennis Miller, Karl Rove, etc.?
Something tells me that O’Reilly might be LYING again.
Do they make a “12 step program” to get liars to quit the lying habit?
You mean like “record” & “play” Bill?
So, Hillary would only “go” to MM if she’s the subject of a story that MM is reporting.
Currently, MM’s home page features the following “Hillary Clinton” pieces:
—Fox’s Tantaros speculates that Hillary Clinton went to Chipotle’s for “Hispanic Outreach”
—O’Reilly: “Hillary Clinton Has An Advantage” Because “It’s Open Season” On White Men In The U.S. (also video)
—Watch Right-Wing Media Praise Hillary Clinton (also video)
—On The Ed Show, Eric Boehlert Explains That Conservative Media Campaign Against Hillary Clinton Is “All About Conspiracy Theories”
—Hannity’s Sexist, Ageist Attack Against Hillary Clinton
Those are just, basically, the first 5 articles dealing with Hillary. NOT A SINGLE ONE involves MM’s actually interviewing Hillary. They’re all just stories dealing with deranged right-wingers attacking Hillary.
The odds of Hillary interviewing with either Bildo or Blackroots Barbie range from slim to none. And slim left the building years ago.
