With every step President Donald Trump has taken since he assumed the Oval Office, Democrats have put up a fight – whether it be by holding up the confirmations of his cabinet nominees, attempting to overturn his executive orders, or challenging his selection of Judge Neil Gorsuch to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court.
Bill O’Reilly on “The Factor” Wednesday night argued that the Democratic Party is harming the country by devolving from a democratic “loyal opposition” into plain opposition.
“First of all, we need two vibrant parties in this country,” said O’Reilly. “Robust debate and different points of view strengthen the nation. But a big change is taking place. The term ‘loyal opposition’ in politics is now devolving into just opposition.”
“The loyal has left the building,” he added.
“In President Trump’s case, no matter what he does, the Democrats will oppose him, and that’s harmful to America,” O’Reilly said.
The Fox News host went on to criticize Democratic leadership such as House Minority Nancy Pelosi for being “arrogant and dishonest,” downplaying the importance of issues such as illegal immigration in order to, at once, push their agenda and undermine President Trump’s.
"Talking Points wants a strong Democratic party, as well as a vibrant Republican Party. That's the way our nation functions best," O'Reilly said. "But right now, there's a political civil war that is actually harming the USA. And until politicians stop the deceit and embrace policies that help all Americans, that war will continue."
The violent protests at University of California, Berkley on Wednesday are just one recent example that backs up O’Reilly’s argument, demonstrating how a culture of intolerance among the left has been tolerated, fostered, and even cheered by Democrats.
