Bill O'Reilly Loses it: Says Writing Liberal Blog Posts Is Like Lynching People

O’Reilly attacks Gore for attending Netroots Nation: ‘the same as if he stepped into the Klan gathering.’
On Saturday, former Vice President Al Gore made a surprise appearance at the Netroots Nation convention in Austin, TX. In his speech, Gore praised the gathering of progressives, saying that they are part of an effort to "reclaim the integrity of American democracy."

While the attendees of Netroots Nation received Gore with enthusiasm, his appearance has caused Fox News's Bill O'Reilly to declare that Gore has "gone off the deep end."

On his radio show today, O'Reilly claimed that Gore was now associating himself with the most "hateful group in the country." "And I'm including the Nazis and the Klan in here," said O'Reilly." He then claimed that attending Netroots Nation was "the same as if he stepped into the Klan gathering":
O'REILLY: Al Gore now is done. He's done. Ok. He is not a man of respect, he doesn't have any judgment. The fact that he went to this thing is the same as if he stepped into the Klan gathering. It's the same. No difference. None. K, he loses all credibility with me. All credibility.
