Fox News commentator Bill O’Reilly is a populist, not a conservative. As such, O’Reilly has demonstrated his willingness to throw gun owners under the proverbial bus on numerous occasions. For example, he strenuously defended a state’s “right” to ban and, yes, confiscate firearms during a declared emergency. O’Reilly’s not-so-evil twin, Glenn Beck, is also soft on gun rights. At the NRA Convention in 2012, Beck told TTAG that he doesn’t support Constitutional carry because “we’re not ready for it yet.” That said, I love watching the dynamic duo’s dynamic when they share screen time . . .
O’Reilly hates Beck. He never misses a chance to pull rank, diss and humiliate his former colleague—who seems to have found a set of stones since he split from the Fox family (the old interviews were genuinely cringe-worthy). In this segment, Beck shows a gun. Yes, a gun. politco.com found this noteworthy. Which is noteworthy in the sense that it isn’t noteworthy—except to note the left’s ridiculous hoplophobia.
What I want to know: was O’Reilly calling Beck a wanker?
