O'Reilly Examines the 'Big Lies' That Affect Every American
In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly said there are several "big lies" being perpetuated that affect every American citizen.
First, he pointed to San Francisco city supervisors refusing to cooperate with federal law and incarcerate foreign felons who defy deportation.
He noted that one member of the city's board of supervisors, David Campos, said that people like O'Reilly and Donald Trump are trying to "scapegoat and entire community" when they call for immigration reform and legislation like Kate's Law.
"That is a complete lie. No one on this program has ever scapegoated an entire community," O'Reilly said. "So David Campos does not tell the truth. But even worse than that, he and his peers are anarchists. They are refusing to comply with federal law."
O'Reilly said the second lie is that the American justice system is biased against African Americans.
He pointed out that Hispanics make up 48 percent of drug offenders in federal prison, while African Americans make up 27 percent and whites 22 percent.
"So another big lie is saying the government is targeting blacks in drug cases," O'Reilly said.
The third "big lie," O'Reilly said, is that law enforcement officers are dangerous murderers.
He noted that groups like Black Lives Matter and people like Quentin Tarantino are demonizing cops, no matter the facts.
"All of this has demoralized many American police officers, and violent crime again is rising," O'Reilly said.
"So the big lies being spread by the far-left are having a direct effect on life in America. And here's another disgraceful fact: Many in the media who are mandated to report the truth actually knowingly spread the lies."
