“The court acceptance of Obama Care and gay marriage was predictable. In fact, there is a legal team accurately for a toll what would happen last week. The Supreme Court is made up of nine individuals who see America in very different ways. Some see it a country that needs to be changed. Others believed we’re settled nation, where established law should be upheld.”
O’Reilly continued by saying that, basically, we have an “activist” court. Bill hinted that Chief Justice John Roberts was a hypocrite. O’Reilly notes that Roberts believes Congress should make the laws (instead of judges), but that Roberts also jumped through the legal hoops to justify ObamaCare without approval of Congress.
Bill O’Reilly believes that people have a right to celebrate the gay marriage victory, but not rub off their views on others.
“Americans who sincerely believe that judges do have the authority to redefine marriage have a perfect right to celebrate their victory provided they are following their consciences. However, they do not have a right to demonize those who disagree based on the same principle, conscience.”
Raw Story quotes Bill O’Reilly criticizing Stephen Colbert for his views on Judge Scalia.
“In a few months, Colbert will be competing against [Jimmy] Fallon and [Jimmy] Kimmel, both talented and successful guys. He might want to think about alienating traditional Americans to the extent he has. It could be very bad for business.”
According to Raw Story, Bill O’Reilly’s comments are in regards to a video released by Colbert, where he says he thought Scalia had hid his head in a flesh-toned cinch sack. Colbert was one of the many liberals who mocked Scalia for his harsh disagreement with the Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage.
We can certainly expect an exciting week from Bill O’Reilly, who easily led the cable news ratings last week. When rating figures were avaraged on Zap2it for the previous week, O’Reilly averaged 2.4 million viewers. His closest competition, Megyn Kelly, averaged 1.98 million viewers. On Tuesday night, Bill O’Reilly plans to go beyond politics a little bit in order to discuss all the shark attacks that have been hitting the East Coast. Do you think Mr. O’Reilly will mention the reasoning behind the current rise in President Obama‘s approval rating? Let us know in the comments section.
