Black Lives Matter Group Chants, 'Pigs in a Blanket, Fry 'Em Like Bacon'
Bill O’Reilly last night vowed to put Black Lives Matter “out of business” in the wake of the group’s anti-police chant.
Video shows Black Lives Matter protesters chanting, “Pigs in a blanket, fry ‘em like bacon” during a march at the Minnesota State Fair this weekend.
Black Lives Matter St. Paul organizer Rashad Turner told the Associated Press on Monday that no one was advocating for violence against law enforcement. He said it was meant to call for similar treatment between black people and police officers.
Turner said the uproar shouldn't focus on the group's chant but instead on recent police killings of unarmed black men and women like those in Ferguson, Missouri, Cincinnati and Baltimore.
"We're not going to be distracted by their attempt to minimize our movement and focus on a chant that lasted 30 seconds," he said.
O’Reilly called Black Lives Matter “a hate group” and said he would “put them out of business.”
“You can criticize police,” he said. “If you call for their demise, that’s hatred.”
