Bill O'Reilly Fired Up! 'African American Leadership Needs to Stop This Nonsense'
Bill O’Reilly delivered an impassioned Talking Points Memo on tonight’s Factor. He tackled the race problem facing America and the lack of leadership by the president to solve those issues. In part, he blamed the disintegration of the family, the entertainment industry and drug dealers.
O’Reilly sent this powerful message: “You want a better situation for blacks? Give them a chance to revive their neighborhoods and culture. Work with the good people to stop the bad people. […] You can’t legislate good parenting or responsible entertainment. But you can fight against the madness with discipline, a firm message and little tolerance for excuse making. It is now time for the African American leadership, including President Obama, to stop the nonsense. Walk away from the world of victimization and grievance and lead the way out of this mess.”
He said that “race hustlers” have intimidated the conversation, “turning any valid criticism of African American culture into charges of racial bias. […] You want racism? That’s racism.”
O’Reilly surmised that young black men raised without structure reject education and gravitate toward drugs, hustling and gangs. “The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African American family. […] When was the last time you saw a public service ad telling young black girls to avoid becoming pregnant? […] White people don’t force black people to have babies out of wedlock.”
The Factor host called out the entertainment industry for glorifying a “gansta” culture to impressionable children. “Hey, listen up you greed-heads. If a kid can’t speak proper English, uses the f-word in every sentence, […] is disrespectful in his or her mouth, that child will never, never be able to compete in the marketplace of America. […] And it had nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents. You’re the ones hurting these vulnerable children.”
He blamed narcotics for destroying the city of Detroit, which just filed for bankruptcy last week. “What do the race hustlers and limousine liberals yell about? The number of black men in prison for selling drugs. ‘Oh, it’s so unfair. It’s a non-violent crime and blacks are targeted.’ That is one of the biggest lies in the history of this country. The thugs who sell hard drugs, no matter what color they are, deserve to be put away for long periods of time. […] They are scum!”
“When was the last time you heard the Congressional Black Caucus say that?” O’Reilly asked. “How about Jackson and Sharpton? How about President Obama?”
