O'Reilly Calls Out 'Zealots' Who Use Violent Incidents to Advance Political Agendas
It is long past time for political zealots to stop using heinous crimes to advance their political ideology, Bill O’Reilly said in his Talking Points Memo tonight.
O'Reilly pointed out that Planned Parenthood officials are blaming the shooting at a Colorado clinic on harsh criticism of the organization after undercover videotapes exposed the sale of aborted baby body parts.
He said that the gunman behind the deadly incident, Robert Dear, is solely responsible for his actions, not all people who criticize Planned Parenthood's practices.
O'Reilly pointed out that following the murder of nine-year-old Tyshawn Lee in Chicago, who was gunned down because his father is allegedly in a gang, it would be wrong to demonize all young, black inner city men for the boy's death.
"It is exclusively on the killers and no one else," O'Reilly stated.
"The Factor" host added that following the shooting of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald by Chicago Officer Jason Van Dyke, it's a certainty that some will use the incident to demonize all police officers all over the country.
"And again, that is flat-out wrong."
