"Is traditional America gone for good?" Bill O'Reilly wondered on his Monday Fox News program.
The "O'Reilly Factor" host said that he thought "traditional America" could return, but it would take a "very special politician" to make that happen.
O'Reilly said that President Obama's reelection was due to "entitlement" voters. "It's clear that left-wing ideology did not win the day for Barack Obama, big spending on federal programs did. That's the key, because many in the media would have us believe that liberal ideology was confirmed by this election. It was not. However, secularism is certainly eroding traditional power," O'Reilly said.
The Fox News host then charged that Obama was the "the poster boy for progressive secularism," a movement that, he said, was bad for America.
"Secular progressives don't want limitations on so-called private behavior," O'Reilly said. Speaking as a "secular progressive," O'Reilly continued, "Want to smoke drugs? Fine! Want to abort a fetus? We'll drive you to the clinic! Want to have a kid when you're 16? No problem at all, we'll support you."
He then concluded that the far left was a "dangerous outfit, bent on destroying traditional America and replacing it with a social free-fire zone that drives dependency and poverty."
O'Reilly lamented the loss of what he called "traditional America" on Fox News' election night coverage as well.
"Obama wins because it's not a traditional America anymore," he said. "The white establishment is the minority. People want things."
