Bill O’Reilly continues to take on the race-baiters

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

Earlier this week, Glenn covered Bill O’Reilly’s headline grabbing ‘Talking Points Memo’ about the dire problems facing blacks in America. Chief among those problems is the breakdown of the familial unit and the consequences that has on children. His analysis was spot on, but that hasn’t stopped the race-baiters from piling on.

“I want to play just the opening couple of minutes here of the O’Reilly Factor last night,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “O’Reilly has been going off on the race‑baiters, and it is getting to be insane. I want to play the opening couple of minutes for you here in his Talking Points Memo where he was talking about the latest on what people are now saying on television and on radio. Race, I guess, leaders of their race – if that’s not racist.”

In last night’s Memo, O’Reilly highlighted Georgetown University professor and MSNBC contributor Michael Eric Dyson, whose ridiculous and downright offensive comments were played on the Glenn Beck Radio Program on Tuesday. Among other things, Dyson accused O’Reilly of being “surprised black people don’t throw bananas at each other or swing from trees.” Last night, O’Reilly responded:

O’REILLY: Instead of trying to come up with solutions to the disproportionate amount of violent crime caused by young African‑American men, the catastrophic high school dropout rate in the inner city, and the destruction of the traditional black family, the race‑hustlers and their sympathizers have descended into the gutter. Top gun in this tawdry display: Georgetown University Professor Michael Eric Dyson.

DYSON: We can indict the white family. There’s a lot of negativity, there’s a lot of dismissiveness, there’s a lot of crass materialism that refuses to care for the other. We can talk about the pathology at the heart of the white family.

O’REILLY: Georgetown must be very proud.

Perhaps more egregious, however, is the commentary O’Reilly unearthed from Louisiana State Representative Monique Davis, who blamed police officers for the death of black children.

O’REILLY: It gets worse. Speaking about the epidemic of murder committed by black killers in Chicago, Illinois State Representative Monique Davis said this.

DAVIS: I’m going to tell you what some suspicions have been and people have whispered to me. They’re not sure that black people are shooting all of these children. There’s some suspicion, and I don’t want to spread this but I’m just going to tell you what I’ve been hearing. They suspect maybe the police are killing some of these kids.

“Oh, my gosh,” Glenn said. “That is a representative in the State of Illinois, on radio… This is how crazy people are getting. And why?”

“Because [O’Reilly is] speaking the statistical truth,” Pat responded.

Dyson and Rep. Davis are so desperate to make this a racist issue, painting O’Reilly as a bigot who is unqualified to speak about issues within the black community. In reality, as Glenn points out, the breakdown of the family is a national issue that transcends race.

“Dads are absent,” Glenn said matter-of-factly. “And is the white family perfect? No. The white family is disintegrating as well. It is our families. That is the answer to all of our problems, political, everything. It is our families. And if we don’t put the damn cellphones down; if we don’t put the computers down; if we don’t start to connect with one another; if we don’t stop taking our kids to everything that all of their friends do. ’Well, they’re in karate, and they’re in soccer, and they’re in football, and they’re in ballet, and they’re in art school, and they’re in this, and they’re in that.’ Stop it. Stop it. What is wrong with us? Stop it. Now, obviously I’m speaking with passion because my family is at stake too. All of our families are at stake.”

    Keep up the fine work.

    I started watching Bill because of it tho to be fair the things he said you can say about any race it is just that the Dems have been keeping the black race down and their break down in cities is the result. But I feel more of them are going to wake up to the bull of the Dems and a lot sooner than the others.

      don’t always agree with O’Reilly and find he leans to the left
      sometimes but he got my attention when he spoke the truth on this
      problem. Speak out and don’t let the race baiters stop you from telling
      the truth.

    We know where it’s coming from and who’s behind it, and the only way to stop it is to gain control of the Senate in the 2014 mid-term election and impeach and arrest Barack Obama.

    she’s a racist inciting racism.

  • unclebill

    O’reilly has broken through. He has pierced the veil of the black smokescreen maintained by Sharpton etal. and put them on the defensive. He has shown that racism really comes from blacks against all non-blacks and not from whites. It’s time for black leaders and liberals to stop playing the race card. Too many years have passed and there are still liberals saying that we need to have discussions. Unfortunately, there is no longer a logical basis for any discussions as liberals only want to hear themselves.

    God bless America and God bless all of its colorblind inhabitants.

    I have watched O’Reilly’s attack on “race baiters” like Sharpton and Jackson with interest. Eventually, Bill will realize that the fight for the family unit will fail. Relationships are breaking up as quickly as they are starting. The traditional family unit is a thing of the past. No one wants to go through what their parents go through – fighting authorities on what they are teaching their children or fighting their own children on their choice of friends and entertainment. Children have learned that by screaming and howling loud and long enough they will get their way. This next generation is losing all traces of a work ethic; and raising a family with decent values is a near impossible job.

    Blacks have family breakups more than other races because raising children in a welfare environment teaches the children that they have one of two choices – be a ward of the state or turn to crime.

    Only by geting rid of Welfare and most other entitilement programs will keep families together. Nothing else will work. Get it through your head.

    Mr O’Reilly’s pinpointing the destructive chaos in family life for adults and children through the multiple out of wedlock births, the absence of fathers, and the lack of personal guidance and assistance from the community as the root causes of poverty and crime applies to all races and ethnic groups. To me it’s obvious that the individuals and communities caught in such a situations are very reluctant to accept responsibility and sadly may be psychologically and economically unable to change their behavior. The people who represent those effected use the pain and heartache to garner every increasing funds from the government with little or no benefit to the people who were to be helped. Any possible solution may have to go beyond “Don’t do that; look at the consequences” rhetoric, and involve outside community activism which seems unlikely given Rep. Monique Davis’ and Mr. Dyson’s obtuse and defensive agendas.

    I watched Mr. O and was very impressed.  He is taking charge and prayerfully won’t let go of this anyway soon.  Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson need to be run out of the country, and get rid of some of the haters that keep stirring up trouble.  We have enough with obama and his like.
