Watch Megyn Kelly Emphatically Tear Into O’Reilly About Muhammad Cartoon Contest
“In America we stand for liberty and freedom to OFFEND, to PROVOKE, and to PERSUADE, and to DEFY,” those stirring words were spoken by Fox’s own Megyn Kelly, on her critically acclaimed show “The Kelly Files”, and in direct response to Bill O’Reilly’s assertions that “insulting the entire Muslim world is stupid.”
However the difference of opinion didn’t simply end there as O’Reilly attempted to arrogantly ‘double down” and foolishly invited Kelly on his show where he attempted to once again blame the organizers of the contest.
Kelly reminded O’Reilly that the reason the First Amendment was written was not to protect popular speech, but to protect “the most outrageous, offensive, incendiary speech.”
O’Reilly not to be outdone fired back, saying: “it’s always cause and effect… This is what happens when you light the fuse, you get violence.” Kelly was surprised to hear and proceeded to tell O’Reilly that it sounds like he is “attacking the event itself.”
And with that statement Kelly’s eyes widened and methodically began to take O’Reilly apart giving him a history lesson and a remedial course in the law…I’m not sure why O’Reilly continues to match wits with Kelly…she’s brilliant, sassy and doesn’t need to pander to her audience…listening O’Reilly?
