O’Reilly Fires Back at Colbert: He’s a ‘Deceiver’ Who Does ‘Damage’ to the Country

Stephen Colbert loves ripping on Bill O’Reilly every now and then, and last week he took on O’Reilly for comments he made about inequality. Well, O’Reilly fired back on his show Tuesday night, saying plainly that “Mr. Colbert is a deceiver.”

O’Reilly first linked college students’ “contempt for authority” to the “grievance and entitlement” rampant throughout the country before getting to Colbert, whom he derided as the “darling of the internet.” O’Reilly insisted that despite Colbert’s jokes, “I strongly believe in fighting for equality and strongly believe institutional bias should be against the law.”

He even went so far as to accuse Colbert of being part of the problem.

“Like many ideological fanatics, Colbert is misguided in the extreme… He’s a true progressive believer playing exclusively to other believers. Colbert can be dismissed as clueless, but the guy does do damage because he gives cover to powerful people who are selling Americans a big lie that this country is bad.”
