Fox News' Bill O'Reilly lashed out Thursday night at anti-Donald Trump demonstrations that've erupted since his election, decrying what appears to be a "civil war brewing" and charging some demonstrators "want our system destroyed."
In the Talking Points Memo section of "The O'Reilly Factor," the conservative host drew the line between protesters and anarchists.
His remarks were posted on Mediaite.
"Here in the U.S.A., we honor protests, but increasingly we are seeing people who want our system destroyed," he said.
"If you believe Donald Trump is not good for America, I have have no problem with you displaying that opinion," he added. "However, if you hurt someone, destroy some thing, or promote anarchy, you then become a danger to the republic. That kind of stuff needs to be punished and quickly."
"Just because something offends you doesn't mean you have the right to hurt or destroy," he said. "The new president might want to make that very clear."
