O'Reilly: 'Political Hatred Directly Threatening Our Republic'
In his Talking Points Memo on Monday, Bill O'Reilly slammed the partisan "hatred" on display in Congress over the nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.
O'Reilly said it will not be Republicans or Democrats that will get hurt in the end from this "civil war," but instead the regular folks.
He said there is no doubt that Gorsuch, a 10th Circuit Court judge, is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court bench, and that he will be confirmed by the weekend.
But, O'Reilly said that by Democrats opposing every change or proposal the Trump administration puts forward, it makes it difficult for the government to operate as the public needs.
He said the political "hit job" being done by Democrats against Gorsuch is akin to the Pharisees trying to entrap Jesus Christ as recounted in Scripture.
"Fair-minded folks respect sincerely-held differences," O'Reilly said. "[But,] we now have an opposition agenda based primarily on hate."
He called the rancor in Congress "vitriolic in the extreme" and "directly threatening to our Republic."
