Talking Points: 'Crazy Idealogues' Feel the Need to Exploit Mass Murders
In tonight’s Talking Points Memo, Bill O’Reilly said it’s a shame that Americans can’t allow the families of the Santa Barbara shooting victims to grieve without politics.
O’Reilly said that there is no way to stop mass murder, but crazy ideologues feel that they need to exploit this tragedy.
Rutgers professor Brittney Cooper, who O’Reilly described as a “far left loon,” said that “white male privilege kills.”
“The Factor” host blasted that accusation as “insane,” saying that Cooper “conveniently overlooks that murder is colorblind.” He cited a 2011 statistic that found that more than 70 percent of murderers in Chicago were black.
“So you, Madame, are exploiting the Santa Barbara atrocity and trying to ramp up racial hatred to boot, and Rutgers puts that person in the classroom?” O’Reilly said.
Then, Mark Potok blamed the Internet. O’Reilly said he expects more from Potok than that.
“The harsh truth is we are living in a world where more and more people are becoming mentally ill. The reason for that is alienation, families falling apart, pervasive technology that numbs human feelings, and a culture that too often celebrates violence. Boundaries have broken down, but it has nothing to do with racism or bias against women. It has to do with individuals who are so sick, they want to destroy other people as well as themselves.”
