This week's "Rogue of the Week" for Willamette Week is a national figure, but a former Portland (KATU-TV) broadcaster, Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly was only engaging in his usual routine of overheated misinformation, but this time he was pointing it back at Portland. Hence the reference.
Details at the link. In general, as the Week suggested, if you take O'Reilly's core shot - “If you let the crazy educators run wild, which they are in many, many parts of the country, then we’re just going to lose the country, because the kids are confused. They don’t know what the heck is going on” - and replace the references to educators and kids with "O'Reilly" and "his viewers," you've about nailed it.
