I wouldn’t normally be telling you this

I want you to watch the O’Reilly Factor on Fox News, at 8pm ET tonight.

That ad in the NY Times protesting Trump has pissed Ol’ Bill off enough that he has invited a couple of the signatories on to be abused — unfortunately for him, it’ll be Carl Dix and Cornel West, so it might be an incendiary event, and a good time will be held by all.

I guess even I will watch Fox News tonight, much as it pains me.

    too bad. yuk yuk yukkity yuk. as much as I support the ad, and enjoy fireworks; I just can’t watch Faux Noise, in general, and B.ORLY in particular. Even when he moderates himself when guest on another’s show ( #LSSC most recently) he still is nauseous [literally: ’causes nausea’]. So I, for one, will pass. Have fun watching the shitshow even with a few bits of candy as the guests.

    I’m sorry I quit drinking a year ago or this would be entertaining enough for me to watch. Not sure though if there would be enough rum in our local liquor store to allow me to withstand Billious Bill.

    I’ll have to find a video of this later. It sounds like something people are terribly invested in though, which is rather tragic as I can’t see it going anywhere useful. If I had a group of people opposing me this is the way I’d want them doing it because it’s talking about an all or nothing long shot gamble on a solution that would have to be invented on the spot.

    I haven’t had a chance to check it out personally yet but this sounds like a more practical guide to opposing Trump:

    This is one of those very rare times that I regret being a cord cutter. Even if a very tiny percentage of viewers are given reason to look closer to reality (and that would be an accomplishment worth having), it’s often amusing to me to watch a flat-earther type turn purple as they spew obvious falsehoods.

    No cable, no TV…(sigh) what’s a boy to do!

    Anyway, I haven’t watched Blo’ReallyHard fulminate since his McLaughlin Group days. Not going to start tonight just to watch BO or Tweeter DeeDum get their noses rubbed in it.

    I do wish your compatriots luck. I’m sure they’re aware they are walking into hostile territory with Bo et al prepared to use anything they say against them.

    Saw the YouTube. O’Reilly was significantly less of an asshole than he often is; he ‘merely’ talked over West & Dix and handwaved away their substantive concerns without screaming at them. O’Reilly remains a bought-and-paid-for creature of the far right whose responsibility for the rise of the Angry Cheeto is proportional to the size of his audience.

  7. says

    So according to O’Reilly you mustn’t hold anything Trump ever said or did as indicative on who he his and what he will do. As O’Reilly presumably voted for Trump, why did he do so if there’s apparently no connection between the things Trump said he’ll do, the things Trump already did and the things Trump will do?

    Just imagine how Fox News would have responded if Trump would have run for the Democrats…

  9. rietpluim says

    BTW Have Republicans not compared Obama with Hitler on several occasions?

    Isn’t it weird? Nobody wants to be called a fascist. Fascism is the de facto standard of evil. Yet they can’t recognize fascism when it’s staring at them in the mirror.

  10. microraptor says

    rietpluim @12: Have you seen how often they equate fascism with communism? They don’t have the slightest idea what fascism actually is beyond being “bad.”

  11. F.O. says

    @Giliell: because Trump is the *Leader*, that’s the one and only thing that matters to authoritarians.
