Fiery O'Reilly Destroys Obama's 'Foolish' Policy of Releasing Drug Dealers from Prison
In his Talking Points Memo tonight, Bill O'Reilly blasted President Obama and liberals for having sympathy for drug dealers.
O'Reilly pointed out that more than 6,000 drug dealers were released from federal penitentiaries across the country after their sentences were shortened at the behest of the president.
O'Reilly said that's because liberals believe that selling hard drugs like heroin, cocaine and methamphetamine is a non-violent action.
"The president and other liberal Americans do not want harsh punishment for drug-involved individuals," O'Reilly said, explaining that the left believes that police target African Americans more than whites in the narcotics trade, and many liberals want all drugs legalized, believing it's a personal choice.
"The Factor" host argued that Obama's solution of diverting drug-involved individuals to rehab instead of prison won't work because you cannot force someone to be rehabilitated.
"Here's the worst part of President Obama's foolish policy: It sends a message to young people, to drug dealers, to drug users that society doesn't believe this is a dangerous and immoral situation," O'Reilly said. "The acceptance and promotion of addictive substances is a national disgrace. Drug dealing is one of the lowest forms of human activity. It enslaves, kills and harms people."
"Yet President Obama is making it a priority to give folks who sell hard drugs leniency. Awful."
