O’Reilly: Liberals Are Making Gains Because ‘More Americans Are Simply Ignorant’

billA recent Gallup poll found that the percentage of social liberals and social conservatives are exactly the same, for the first time in a long time. Bill O’Reilly reacted tonight by saying he knows why liberals are making gains: “more Americans are simply ignorant of the consequences involving social behavior.”

He dubbed it “Watters World syndrome,” in reference to how O’Reilly producer Jesse Watters regularly talks to random people on the street who don’t necessarily have incredibly intellectual reactions to political questions.

O’Reilly said it’s “frightenine” how little liberals know, and he blames the internet and the entertainment industry for changing minds like that. He brought up how things like gay marriage and having a baby outside of marriage are viewed as more acceptable today than they were years ago, and that’s because of Hollywood, apparently.

O’Reilly concluded by warning that “America’s in for a big shock” and something bad’s going to happen soon to shock the conscience of every American and make them rethink what they believe.
