Talking Points Memo: Threats From the Far Left Over the Presidential Election
There is just one week until the presidential election, and during tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly played a political video ad that he described as “very hard to believe.” The ad, which can be viewed in the clip below, was financed by MoveOn.org – an organization that has heavy ties to the Democratic Party.
The ad features elderly people cursing and threatening violence, including a one woman saying, “I want the Republican Party to know […] if your voter suppression throughout this beautiful country enables Romney to oust Barack Obama, we will burn this mother****** down.”
O’Reilly commented, “The far left is threatening violence if President Obama loses the election; that’s what they’re doing with old ladies.”
While the Obama campaign likely doesn’t have anything to do with the creation of the ad, “you judge people by their associations and that’s what’s very troubling about the Democratic Party in general,” O’Reilly said.
He observed, “Most Democrats are honorable, civil, patriotic and well-intentioned people. But there’s a lunatic fringe that has a lot of say in the party.”

O’Reilly has voted for candidates in both parties, but he says he is uneasy with the direction the Democratic Party is heading. According to the Factor host, by not repudiating the far left such as those who created this ad, that makes President Obama culpable.
“The election next Tuesday is a referendum on Barack Obama: do you want his liberal governance or not? And if you do want it, then you have to accept the far left loons that come along with it,” O’Reilly concluded.
