Jesse Lee Peterson: THE LYNCHING OF BILL O’REILLY
THE LYNCHING OF BILL O’REILLY – Jesse Lee Peterson says ouster is about destroying white, Christian male of power
by Jesse Lee Peterson
Man-hating feminists are gloating after overthrowing one of America’s most honest and powerful journalists, Bill O’Reilly. But O’Reilly’s departure from Fox News had little to do with sexual harassment. The firing of O’Reilly is about silencing a straight, white, powerful, Christian man who had the backbone and decency to treat Donald Trump fairly.
The drama came to a head when the New York Times ran a story revealing that Fox News and its parent company, 21st Century Fox, had reached settlements with five women who had complained of sexual harassment by O’Reilly. The agreements reportedly totaled about $13 million. O’Reilly has denied the allegations.
Media Matters, Color of Change and other left-wing groups pressured some 50 advertisers to abandon O’Reilly’s show. And groups like the National Organization for Women called for his firing. I don’t know about past allegations, but even Stevie Wonder can see that the latest allegations against Bill are false. Feminist attorney Lisa Bloom is representing both of O’Reilly’s latest accusers, Perquita Burgess and Wendy Walsh.

Lisa Bloom is the daughter of attorney Gloria Allred, a Hillary Clinton supporter who falsely accused Trump of sexually harassing women in a desperate attempt to derail his campaign.
During an appearance on ABC’s “The View,” with her black client, Perquita Burgess, Bloom admitted this was a targeted effort to “bring down” Bill O’Reilly: “This is what women can do if we stick together and if we have a plan.”
Burgess, a temp clerical worker at Fox News, anonymously claimed through her attorney that O’Reilly harassed her in 2008 by “grunting” at her. But Bloom convinced her to go public last week, telling her that Rosa Parks wouldn’t hesitate.
According to the Washington Post, Bloom needed to keep the buzz going and persuaded Wendy Walsh, a Los Angeles radio personality who had been a frequent guest on O’Reilly’s show, to hold a news conference on April 3. There were two goals, Bloom said: Keep the story alive, and draw out more accusers.
Walsh claimed that Bill invited her to his suite after a meeting in 2013. She said she turned him down, and they went to the bar instead where O’Reilly yelled at her. Yet Walsh continued appearing on O’Reilly’s show and never reported the incident.
Even if O’Reilly was guilty of these allegations – I don’t believe he is – does the punishment fit the crime? Does it warrant him being fired and having his reputation and career destroyed? No.
For 20 years on Fox News, O’Reilly exposed corruption at the highest levels of government, media and academia. He lobbied for the rights of children and championed Jessica’s law – which mandates a minimum sentence of 25 years and a maximum of life in prison for first-time child sex offenders. He unmasked illegal-alien criminals and the sanctuary cities that harbor them.
The left won’t stop until it dismantles Fox News, the most powerful and effective impediment to its power. Media Matters, Color of Change and MoveOn.org – all left-wing attack machines funded by America haters like George Soros – put pressure on Glenn Beck’s advertisers and orchestrated his exit from Fox News in 2011. The same leftist groups have tried to get Rush Limbaugh off the air with false allegations of misogyny, but they failed because Rush fought back.
The left is notorious for targeting conservatives for boycotts. Outspoken conservative Ann Coulter is at war with Berkeley over her right to speak on campus. If Coulter is not allowed to speak on campus April 27, the College Republicans (event organizers) are threatening a lawsuit accusing the university of violating the students’ constitutional rights to free speech. Right on! I interviewed Ann on my show (TheFallenState.tv), and the episode airs April 26 at 9 p.m. Eastern and 6 p.m. Pacific.
The same people who wanted O’Reilly fired supported Bill Clinton and his enabler wife – Hillary Clinton. One is liberal Kirsten Powers, who worked as a political analyst for Fox News and was a frequent guest on “The O’Reilly Factor.” Now she’s with CNN bashing O’Reilly. Powers is the ex-girlfriend of Anthony Weiner and a supporter of the Clintons. We all know Bill Clinton was impeached for perjury and obstruction of justice. He has a scandalous past and a history of abusing women.
Evil wants to divide men and women. So-called “conservative” women who go on CNN and other liberal networks to bash Fox News are being used as pawns. These women should be ashamed for turning on O’Reilly after he helped them launch their careers.
Liberals are only outraged over “sexual harassment” when it advances their godless agenda. They support abortion on demand and false racism, and they seek to remove God from the public square and destroy conservatives.
People on the side of good need to understand the game and have a strategy to win. If the children of the lie can get rid of O’Reilly, they can destroy anyone. O’Reilly is starting a podcast Monday – this is the first step to fighting back. I, for one, will be tuning in.
