Former O’Reilly Factor host Bill O’Reilly appeared on Fox News on September 26, airing his grievances about the network and current events. According to Business Insider, O’Reilly had a lot to say about the media, the NFL, and a whole lot more. He and Sean Hannity yukked it up, at the expense of many Americans. Because his latest vitriol doesn’t touch his classic hits, we found his most deplorable actions.
He blasted the police brutality protests
In a move that surprises absolutely no one, O’Reilly said he finds the NFL players’ kneeling during the National Anthem offensive. According to the LA Times, he not only dislikes the protests, but totally misses the point.
“It’s a mob mentality. It is an anti-Trump demonstration,” O’Reilly said of the protest that Colin Kaepernick kicked off during the Obama administration. “That’s what it’s morphed into.”
Both Hannity and O’Reilly find protests involving the flag offensive, and invoked the armed forces in their arguments. They missed the concept that the First Amendment exists to protect just such protests.
