I honestly don't mind that he brings those folks on sometimes because it means I don't have to watch the likes of Tucker Carlson, Laura Ingraham, etc. I like to hear what all sides are saying, just not from hateful, rude people. Bill may not be perfect, but he's night and day from the TV personalities on Fox, OAN, and Newsmax. A lot of them really are assholes, and I don't regularly tune into their shows for that reason. I do think it's good to watch a little bit of news that gets you worked up, I just don't want to give ratings to anyone I think is a jerk.
This, and I'm so glad you're on here! lol I almost feel like I shouldn't bother posting on his board at all since it seems no one who likes him is posting here. I have family and friends with different views, and much as I don't get them, they're beautiful people. I think this attitude of not forgiving allies who say/do stupid things sometimes is exactly what makes some people go further right. I don't agree with some of the stuff Bill's said lately either, but I do agree with him about this point. He made a crude comment to Rose McGowan, and then he can't be an ally with MeToo. He used the n word because he was stupid and thought he was down enough to say it, he's the biggest racist ever. As far as I know, Bill's never raped or assaulted anyone and has always taken up for minorities. The only thing I remember him doing back in the day was being rough when talking about Islam, but it wasn't from an "anything not Christian makes me uncomfortable" view. He's said dumb things, but even the smartest, most well-intentioned person is going to when regularly being on TV for decades.
