O’Reilly: Charlotte Unrest Will Help Donald Trump Win North Carolina
Regarding the police-involved shooting of Keith L. Scott in Charlotte, N.C., Bill O’Reilly warned that observers of the incident and its aftermath should “let the investigation play out before you form a judgement.”
Scott, who authorities say was armed, was shot and killed by a police officer last week. Scott’s wife released reportedly inconclusive video of the confrontation. Video from the officers’ perspective has not yet been publicly released.
“Some Americans will reach conclusions that have little basis in reality,” he said.
He reminded viewers that, when it comes to racial division, exemplified by the protests in the Queen City, the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. gained respect of both white Americans and African-Americans by peacefully preaching a “message of fairness” and by “exposing bigotry.”
“Racial division can only be healed by dignified conduct—no hate, no violence and no anarchy.”
However, O’Reilly also said that the scenes of unrest in Charlotte, the latest city to be subject to such demonstrations, will help Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Election Day.
“The social unrest in Charlotte will give North Carolina’s 15 electoral votes to Donald Trump,” he said.
“Social order will always be a conservative issue.”
