Noted ultra-conservative and extra-creepy misogynist Bill O’Reilly told his viewers on Monday night that Hillary Clinton has a clear advantage in the 2016 presidential election because it’s “open season” on “Christians” and “white men” in America these days.
Speaking to his audience on his Fox News program, O’Reilly stated that:
[P]olitics in America is no joke. 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 are 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.
O’Reilly, then goes on to smear other media outlets such as Media Matters in an attack that was thinly disguised as “advise” to Clinton:
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 will have something to say about it. Also Mrs. Clinton would be well-advised, well-advised to distance herself from Media Matters and the other gutter snipe 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.
And that’s “The Memo”.
