Jesse Lee Peterson: The Firing Of Bill O’Reilly Was ‘A Modern-Day Lynching’

Right-wing radio host, pastor and misogynist Jesse Lee Peterson is not happy that Fox News fired Bill O’Reilly amid multiple sexual harassment complaints and settlements, declaring on his radio show yesterday that the move was “a modern-day lynching.”

“This was a modern-day lynching of a straight, Christian, conservative, white male of power,” Peterson said. “That’s all this is about, folks. White males of power are under attack. The straight white male of power is the only thing that is keeping the country hanging on. You get rid of them, it’s over. And that’s what these children of the lie are working desperately trying to do.”
