Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly And Megyn Kelly Rile Up Republican Voters
The election season is in full swing and Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly pandered to their audiences by riling them up about important issues, such as illegal immigration, the criminal justice system, Muslim workers, and Christian persecution.
On Tuesday evening, Bill O’Reilly once again condemned the supervisors in San Francisco for refusing to cooperate with federal law on illegal immigrant felons who defy deportation. Bill O’Reilly played a quote from San Francisco Board of Supervisors member David Campos.
O’Reilly called Campos’ statement a huge lie and thought describing Steinle’s death as “equally tragic” to a political commenter who disagrees with him was really ignorant. Bill then brought up his 2014 immigration reform plan.
“What happened in the Steinle family case is tragic. But what’s equally tragic is that this tragic incident is being used by people like Donald Trump, Bill O’Reilly, and others to scapegoat an entire community.”
Bill O’Reilly soon shifted gears towards Barack Obama on another issue.
“President Obama believes the American justice system is biased against African-Americans. Therefore, some convicts should be released from prison because their sentences were too harsh. In the meantime violent crime in the U.S.A. is rising — homicides in the 35 largest cities in the country up about 20 percent so far this year.”
O’Reilly noted that President Obama thinks that heavyweight hard drug dealers aren’t a threat, even though every law enforcement agent in the country realizes that street drug trafficking is a huge issue.Megyn Kelly had special guest Judge Andrew Napolitano on Tuesday evening to talk about what they believe is hypocrisy concerning President Obama’s administration and Muslim truck drivers who refused to deliver alcohol. She quoted the EEOC.
“We are proud to support the rights of workers to equal treatment in the workplace without having to sacrificing their religious beliefs or practices. It’s fundamental to the American principles of religious freedom and tolerance.”
Kelly noted that the Obama administration and the EEOC certainly didn’t portray that attitude towards the Christian bakers in Indiana who refused to make a cake for a gay wedding. Napolitano wondered why the EEOC picked a situation like this where they represent Muslim workers who knew before they took the job that they would be delivering alcoholic beverages.
Kelly also compared the controversy over the Muslim workers with Kim Davis, the county clerk who wouldn’t issue gay marriage licenses. Neither Kelly nor Napolitano supported Kim Davis for the same reason they don’t support the Muslim workers. However, they think the hypocrisy is astounding. Twitter also noted the hypocrisy.
@megynkelly My head pops every time I hear the Liar in Chiefs hypocrisy. Kim Davis gets no accommodations, but 2 Muslims get 240K.

The next week on Fox News should be very interesting, especially with the second Republican presidential debate in Boulder, Colorado, Wednesday evening. Will the debate help Donald Trump solidify his lead over the other Republican candidates? Will this be Dr. Ben Carson’s time to shine? Is the way the media reacts to the debate hypocritical? You can surely find out what many people think by watching Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly on Fox News for the rest of the week.
