'The Left Is Soft on Islamic Terror, But Appalled By Christian Fundamentalism'
Members of the Obama administration were not among the 1.5 million people and 40 world leaders who demonstrated in Paris on Sunday in an effort to end radical Islamic terrorism.
Bill O’Reilly remarked tonight that the outcry has been fierce, and White House spokesperson Josh Earnest has admitted that the administration made a mistake.
“It’s not just a mistake, there is a pattern of behavior here,” O’Reilly said. ”From the very beginning of his tenure, President Obama has been reluctant to declare war on the jihad.”
O’Reilly remarked that the Obama administration will not say that the U.S. is at war with Islamic jihadists.
“President Obama is a man of liberal thought and is obviously tentative about confronting the jihad,” O’Reilly said.
“But here's something very interesting: while the left continues to soft-pedal Islamic terrorism, they're appalled by Christian fundamentalism and generally speaking support the Palestinians against the Jews,” O’Reilly said.
“The Factor” host also responded to a New York Times editorial which reads, “Perhaps the greatest danger in the wake of the massacres is that more Europeans will come to the conclusion that all Muslim immigrants on the continent are carriers of a great and moral threat."
O’Reilly charged the New York Times with being concerned about backlash to Muslims but not worried about how to combat the jihad.
“But when the Catholic priest pedophilia scandal broke, did you ever read in the New York Times or any other left wing publication that they were concerned that good Catholics might be affected adversely? Did you ever read that? I didn't.”
