Bill O’Reilly Goes Medieval on Obama and Other Race Hustlers

Did you see this last night?

Give O’Reilly props. He is genuinely and appropriately outraged by Obama’s sanctimonious hypocrisy on the subject of race.

Glad to see that O’Reilly shares my outrage and my sense of the proper prescription for fixing the problem.

    I really hope this is not true
    did boehner cut some kind of deal with backtrack over Benghazi?

    • Deapster

      What was Boehner doing during that missing 8 hours of Benghazi failure? Was he called into the response discussion in any congressional representative capacity?

    • S7teen70six

      This is a bit over the top. It’s pile on Boehner because some people don’t believe he is doing his job right or when they think he should do what they perceive his job to be.

      If I had to guess I would bet that the Chairmen of the various House Committees that have been holding hearings on Benghazi are the ones that are actually opposed to a Select Committee and Boehner feels threatened by them. But honestly I don’t know why.

      I do know that he would not betray the Republicans to trust anything Obama said or did. Of that I am absolutely certain.

      • Deapster

        O’Donnell was a bright, resourceful, witty and articulate conservative foil to Bill Maher for years. There is was and always will be perfectly legitimate context for that “witch” comment. Don’t through out this baby with the MSM dirty bath water.

        • S7teen70six

          As a candidate she was anything but bright, resourceful or articulate. And trained porpoise could be a foil to Bill Maher.

          • Deapster

            Did you see her in person or the media’s account of her?

            • S7teen70six

              I watched her on Bill Maher back when. I also caught the news a few times with her featured. And I definitely saw her I am not a witch commercial. Anyone stupid enough to put out such a ridiculous commercial deserved to lose an election.

              • Deapster

                O’Donnell regrets it too: http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/nationnow/2011/08/christine-odonnell-regrets-im-not-a-witch-ad.html

                What candidate has not had regrettable bloopers – tolerance and forgiveness for the difficulty of the role a candidate undertakes within the voter is more the measure of this than the candidate’s misstep.

                • S7teen70six

                  Her regret is that she “trusted the experts.” Don’t real leaders lead by making decisions and taking responsibility their selves? If she felt awkward doing the ad she shouldn’t have done the ad.

    • S7teen70six

      I remember several years ago when kids were actually killing other kids over Michael Jordan gym shoes. If responsible parents would have demanded that their children cease and desist and taught them morals at that point perhaps children wouldn’t be in the shape they are in today. But instead of teaching their children, parents, just like today, made excuses for them and shifted the blame for their actions elsewhere.

      • Deapster

        Even blaming the parents is shifting the blame. Kids are perfectly capable of making good or bad decisions on their own. Excusing young people from consequences, swift, direct and immediate teaches them nothing.

        • S7teen70six

          Not if they are not taught from an early age how to distinguish right from wrong. And have adult moral examples to emulate.

          • Deapster

            Exactly what I was saying, in fact.

            • S7teen70six

              I suppose that your view of child rearing and mine are different. I don’t believe that a child should be punished for not knowing what is right and what is wrong. I do believe that once taught those lessons any deviation therefrom merits a punishment. I didn’t get that from what you wrote.

    • Deapster

      Timely reminder – Westside Story – 1956:

      Dear kindly Sergeant Krupke,
      You gotta understand,
      It’s just our bringin’ up-ke
      That gets us out of hand.

      Our mothers all are junkies,
      Our fathers all are drunks.
      Golly Moses, natcherly we’re punks!

      Gee, Officer Krupke, we’re very upset;
      We never had the love that ev’ry child oughta get.
      We ain’t no delinquents,
      We’re misunderstood.
      Deep down inside us there is good!
      There is good!

      ALL

      There is good, there is good,
      There is untapped good!
      Like inside, the worst of us is good!

      SNOWBOY: (Spoken) That’s a touchin’ good story.
      ACTION: (Spoken) Lemme tell it to the world!
      SNOWBOY: Just tell it to the judge.

      Dear kindly Judge, your Honor,
      My parents treat me rough.
      With all their marijuana,
      They won’t give me a puff.
      They didn’t wanna have me,
      But somehow I was had.
      Leapin’ lizards! That’s why I’m so bad!

      DIESEL: (As Judge) Right!

      Officer Krupke, you’re really a square;
      This boy don’t need a judge, he needs an analyst’s care!
      It’s just his neurosis that oughta be curbed.
      He’s psychologic’ly disturbed!

      ACTION

      I’m disturbed!

      JETS

      We’re disturbed, we’re disturbed,
      We’re the most disturbed,
      Like we’re psychologic’ly disturbed.

      DIESEL: (Spoken, as Judge) In the opinion on this court, this child is depraved on account he ain’t had a normal home.

      ACTION: (Spoken) Hey, I’m depraved on account I’m deprived.

      DIESEL: So take him to a headshrinker.

      ACTION (Sings)

      My father is a bastard,
      My ma’s an S.O.B.
      My grandpa’s always plastered,
      My grandma pushes tea.
      My sister wears a mustache,
      My brother wears a dress.
      Goodness gracious, that’s why I’m a mess!

      A-RAB: (As Psychiatrist) Yes!

      Officer Krupke, you’re really a slob.

      This boy don’t need a doctor, just a good honest job.
      Society’s played him a terrible trick,
      And sociologic’ly he’s sick!

      ACTION

      I am sick!

      ALL

      We are sick, we are sick,
      We are sick, sick, sick,

      Like we’re sociologically sick!

      A-RAB: In my opinion, this child don’t need to have his head shrunk at all. Juvenile delinquency is purely a social disease!

      ACTION: Hey, I got a social disease!

      A-RAB: So take him to a social worker!

      ACTION

      Dear kindly social worker,
      They say go earn a buck.
      Like be a soda jerker,
      Which means like be a schumck.
      It’s not I’m anti-social,
      I’m only anti-work.
      Gloryosky! That’s why I’m a jerk!

      BABY JOHN: (As Female Social Worker)

      Eek!

      Officer Krupke, you’ve done it again.
      This boy don’t need a job, he needs a year in the pen.
      It ain’t just a question of misunderstood;
      Deep down inside him, he’s no good!

      ACTION

      I’m no good!

      ALL

      We’re no good, we’re no good!
      We’re no earthly good,
      Like the best of us is no damn good!

      DIESEL (As Judge)
      The trouble is he’s crazy.

      A-RAB (As Psychiatrist)
      The trouble is he drinks.

      BABY JOHN (As Female Social Worker)
      The trouble is he’s lazy.

      DIESEL
      The trouble is he stinks.

      A-RAB
      The trouble is he’s growing.

      BABY JOHN
      The trouble is he’s grown.

      ALL

      Krupke, we got troubles of our own!
      Gee, Officer Krupke,
      We’re down on our knees,
      ‘Cause no one wants a fellow with a social disease.
      Gee, Officer Krupke,
      What are we to do?

      I’m living in SE Asia right now. I have a mango tree in my yard and there are monkeys in my mango tree. Last weekend I saw a big ripe mango hanging on it and told my husband that I wanted him to pick it for me the next day. The next morning I noticed it was gone…turned out to be a blessing because a few hours later we saw a curious neighbor cat stalking something in our grass. All of a sudden a black COBRA lifted his hooded head and lurched at the cat!

  • Hunn Innor

    Another super racist rant feeding the racist white grey haired set. O’ Reilly and Larry Johnson have quite the record on race baiting.

    O’Reilly needs to check is stats. White people use drugs about as much as black people do, yet black people go to jail four times more for drug use than white people do. What is up with that… alright to be a white suburb or college kid smoking dope, but if you are a black kid you go to jail. Alright for a white kid to wear a hoddy and eat skittles and drink ice tea, but if you are a black kid you get murdered for it.

    O’Reilly and Larry Johnson are always so so superficial with their commentary.

    • S7teen70six

      Hey igit, WTF is a hoddy? Did you graduate from the Rachel Jeantel School of Fine Arts? And Poor Completely Innocent Trayvon didn’t have iced tea, it was Arizona Watermelon Fruit Punch. I realize you are an ignorant Oborg with his head up Obama’s ass but at least get a few facts straight.

      • Retired_from_SPOnaj

        Wait a minute! Are you saying that Trayvon wasn’t carrying iced tea, he was carrying Watermelon Fruit Punch? We need to spike that, it might be considered to be racist. Let’s just call it iced tea.

        And certainly, let’s not point out that Watermelon Fruit Punch and Skittles are two of the three ingredients (along with cough syrup) to make “Lean,” an intoxicating drink that Trayvon was familiar with. That would be racist, too.

        I wonder why if it so common for black kids to get in trouble for smoking pot that Barack Obama, a self-admitted pot enthusiast, was never arrested? Oh, that’s right, he was more white than black. He only got dreams from his father. Never mind.

        • S7teen70six

          And I was trying so hard not to let my racist side show.

        • Hunn Innor

          you are a complete racist.

          “I wonder why if it so common for black kids to get in trouble for smoking pot”

          do you have any proof that it is so common for black kids to get in trouble for smoking pot….

          do black kids get in more trouble for smoking pot than say white kids…

          • S7teen70six

            I see you are living up to the igit title once again. Didn’t you just state that “But, Blacks go to jail for it four times more on a per capita basis”? Or was that before you got a new set of talking points?

        • jbjd

          I wonder whether those people who changed the name of the drink did so because they thought that accurately identifying it, with “watermelon” in the title, would fuel a perception of (stereotypical) racism; or they didn’t want others to get the “lean” connection which they feared would not only be perceived as stereotypically racist but also spoil the choir boy narrative. (Oops, I said, “boy.” As my black son would tease, “Ooh, that’s racicist!”) Or maybe, as with so many other details of this case; they just didn’t bother to check.

    • DianaLC

      The thing is that among whites there is a larger group of middle-class (maybe not upper middle class or wealthy) whites who find it despicable if one smokes dope or takes harder drugs. I was always taught that my body is my temple and you don’t desecrate (though you obviously won’t know the meaning of that word) the temple.

      You got to get out into the larger world instead of the world of the street gangsta.

      But to correct one thing you wrote, Trayvon Martin was killed IN SELF DEFENSE because he was beating the snot out of someone he had gone all gangsta on. There are examples of his texts in which he claimed he wasn’t happy though he had won a different fight with someone because he hadn’t drawn enough blood.

      In all the middle-class schools that I taught, many with Hispanic, Asian, and black students mingling among the white (in other words, NOT GANGSTA schools), students find themselves in serious trouble for fighting, even if they didn’t start it. But if you start a fight wanting to seriously hurt someone, and George Z said Treyvon said that he (GZ) was going to die, expect that person to do what he can to save his own life.

      Treyvon should have had a better upbringing, and my guess is that you should have too.

      • S7teen70six

        Exactly. Yet the person who failed Trayvon the most (his father) is on Capital Hill pleading his case that the black community is falling apart. Perhaps if his father had spent the time to raise his son and teach him to know the difference between right and wrong Trayvon would still be alive. And I feel the same toward his birth mother. Both of them are culpable in his death.

        • DianaLC

          When my two boys were Trayvon’s age, I did NOT SLEEP. I spend every extra minute figuring out where they were, who they were with, and what they were doing.

          I told them over and over and over again how much I loved them and worried about them and how much it would hurt me if something happened to them because they weren’t being careful or because they were doing something I didn’t approve of. I prayed constantly.

          There is the story of Monica, the mother of St. Augustine. The Pope at the time told her that things had to turn out well for St. Augustine (whose youth was spent in bad ways) because of the many tears and prayers of his mother.

          Kids do not “have to be kids.” That’s just an excuse. Kids can be kids and remain out of trouble at the same time.

        • Hunn Innor

          Again, you seem to be claiming that given Trayvon’s father or upbringing that somehow he deserved to be killed that it was somehow his fault. You are so full of shit. That is the new threshold. All those with questionable upbrings deserve to be murdered.

          • S7teen70six

            I did not say that he deserved to be killed. I have never said, implied or claimed any such thing you intentionally stupid Obot POS.

            What he deserved was parents that gave a damn about him before he was killed.

          • DianaLC

            See my comment above. Trayvon Martin was NOT murdered. He died because his actions (possibly the result of a bad upbringing) caused someone (GZ) to have to defend himself or he (GZ) would have died instead. That’s what the jury, who listened to all the evidence and statement presented in court decided.
            It’s a point of logic that your illogical mind cannot grasp.

        • jbjd

          See my reply to HI, above.

      • Hunn Innor

        You are so full of shit DianaLC. So you are saying that Trayvon had a bad upbringing (what do you base that on..) and that he deserved to die because of his upbringing and that it was his fault… Again you are so full of shit.

        By the way you should look at the actual stats. Whites use drugs just as much as Blacks. But, Blacks go to jail for it four times more on a per capita basis. Overall, there are five times more whites that use drugs than blacks.

        “The rate of illicit drug and substance use is comparable among white and black youth, but generally it is slightly lower among blacks. Among 18-to-25 year olds, the 2009 National Survey of Drug Use and Health reports that 39 percent of whites used an illicit drug in the past year. For blacks, the rate was 34 percent. Some of these youth are experimenting with illicit drugs, and some are fairly regular users. The estimates for regular users are 23 percent for whites and 21 percent for blacks. This age group has the highest rate of illicit drug use.

        What this means a bit more concretely is that there are about 5 million white 18-to-25 year olds who are regular illicit drug users compared to about 1 million black users. Given that there are roughly five white drug users for every one black drug user, it is incredible that nearly half of all people in state prison for drugs are black. This is an amazing criminal “justice” accomplishment. It is also a remarkable achievement of our culture that the strereotype of a drug dealer is a young black male, when it is fairly certain that at any given time the number of white dealers outnumbers the number of black dealers.”

        “Among 18-to-25 year olds, white youth are two-and-a-half times as likely as black youth to abuse prescription drugs. The abuse of drugs like OxyContin kill more people than crack cocaine and yet, as measured by the intensity of our policing and prosecution, our criminal justice system views crack cocaine as the greater harm to society.”

        “when it comes to drug trafficking, there is substantial bias in the justice system based on, among other things, whether the offender is dealing in pharmaceuticals or street drugs. . . . [T]his disparity is not based on any objective assessment of social harm or threats to public well being. Rather, it is more likely that the types of people who are apt to be abusing and trafficking in pharmaceuticals do not fit the stereotypical drug dealer profile that has come from the war on drugs and are, therefore, regarded quite differently by lawmakers and the criminal justice system. (p. 93)”

        • jbjd

          Your drug stats appear to be in the ballpark. However, given the disparate outcomes in violent crime by race; this points to the existence of an explanation other than drugs. Mr. O’Reilly suggests that reason is likely the disparate percentage of black single parent households. He argues, instead of railing against disparate sentencing, blacks should be cautioning against having babies outside of ‘wedlock.’

          Of course, in Trayvon Martin’s case, his 2 bad parents – biological mom and dad – could not offset the good done by his step-mom, Alecia Stanley. Especially their decision to traumatically sever Trayvon’s ties with her, when his father moved out of her house to sleep with the woman who would become his 3rd wife.

          • S7teen70six

            Excellent points. A shame they are lost on an Obot. Yet speak the truth we must.

        • beyond partisan

          There’s a big HUGE difference between smoking a joint with a few college buddies and being ADDICTED to crack cocaine and other hard street drugs that are prone to make you violent. O’Reilly, in fact, did actually say HARD drugs, not just “drugs,” in his Talking Points memo. And regardless, the fact is, black young men kill each other at an alarming rate and the functional literacy of the black poor in Detroit is only 47%. Face facts: Some white young hipster tripping on one tablet of Oxycontin while at an after hours dance party is far less likely to be a hardened street criminal than a young black gang member on and peddling crack.

    (TEXT IN FULL – Worth going viral – republished not for commercial purposes)

    By Bill O’Reilly

    On Friday, the President delivered surprise remarks to the press about the Trayvon Martin case and race in general. His main point: a plea for understanding.

    OBAMA: There are very few African-American men in this country who haven’t had the experience of being followed when they were shopping in a department store, that includes me. I don’t want to exaggerate this but those sets of experiences inform how the African-American community interprets what happened one night in Florida.

    O’REILLY: And that’s true. Many black Americans harbor at least some resentment for past injury. But what President Obama surely knows is that you cannot reach a fair criminal verdict or design effective public policy that solves present problems by dwelling on the sins of the past. “Talking Points” believes the President was correct in addressing the race issue and framing it with the Martin case. He’s the leader of America and the country is talking about this.

    By the way, when you hear a pundit or politician saying we should have a quote, “conversation” about race, that means you are in for a sea of bloviating which will likely lead nowhere.

    The sad truth is that from the President on down, our leadership has no clue, no clue at all about how to solve problems within the black community. And many are frightened to even broach the issue. That’s because race hustlers and the grievance industry have intimidated the so- called “conversation,” turning any valid criticism of African-American culture into charges of racial bias.

    So many in power simply walk away leaving millions of law abiding African-Americans to pretty much fend for themselves in violent neighborhoods. You want racism? That’s racism.

    Thus, it is time for some straight talk, and I hope the President is listening tonight because we need him to lead on this issue.

    Trayvon Martin was killed because circumstances got out of control. He was scrutinized by a neighborhood watchman, George Zimmerman, because of the way he looked. Not necessarily his skin color, there is no evidence of that but because he was a stranger to Zimmerman and was dressed in clothing sometimes used by street criminals.

    It was wrong for Zimmerman to confront Martin based on his appearance. But the culture that we have in this country does lead to criminal profiling because young black American men are so often involved in crime, the statistics overwhelming.

    BUT HERE IS THE HEADLINE: young black men commit homicides at a rate 10 times greater than whites and Hispanics combined. When presented with damning evidence like that, and like the mini-holocaust in Chicago where hundreds of African-Americans are murdered each year the civil rights industry looks the other way or makes excuses. They blame guns, poor education, lack of jobs, rarely do they define the problem accurately. So here it is. The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family.

    Right now about 73 percent of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty. And the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys growing up resentful and unsupervised. When was the last time you saw a public service ad telling young black girls to avoid becoming pregnant? Has President Obama done such an ad? How about Jackson or Sharpton? Has the Congressional Black Caucus demanded an ad like that? How about the PC pundits who work for NBC News?

    White people don’t force black people to have babies out of wedlock. That’s a personal decision; a decision that has devastated millions of children and led to disaster both socially and economically. So raised without much structure, young black men often reject education and gravitate towards the street culture, drugs, hustling, gangs. Nobody forces them to do that; again, it is a personal decision.

    But the entertainment industry encourages the irresponsibility by marketing a gangster culture, hip hop, movies, trashy TV shows to impressionable children. In fact, President Obama has welcomed some of the worst offenders in that cesspool to the White House when he should be condemning what these weasels are doing. These so-called entertainers get rich while the kids who emulate their lyrics and attitude destroy themselves.

    And then there is the drug situation. Go to Detroit and ask anyone living on the south side of the eight-mile road what destroyed their city? They will tell you narcotics. They know addiction leads to crime and debasement. But what do the race hustlers and limousine liberals yell about? The number of black men in prison for selling drugs. Oh, it’s so unfair. It’s a nonviolent crime and blacks are targeted. That is one of the biggest lies in the history of this country.

    The thugs who sell hard drugs, no matter what color they are, deserve to be put away for long periods of time. They sell poison, they sell a product that enslaves and kills. They are scum.

    When was the last time you heard the Congressional Black Caucus say that? How about Jackson and Sharpton? How about President Obama?

    The solution to the epidemic of violent crime in poor black neighborhoods is to actively discourage pregnancies out of marriage, to impose strict discipline in the public schools, including mandatory student uniforms, and to create a zero tolerance policy for gun and drug crimes imposing harsh mandatory prison time on the offenders.

    And finally, challenging the entertainment industry to stop peddling garbage. Hey listen up you greed heads, if a kid can’t speak proper English, uses the “f” word in every sentence, it’s disgraceful, it’s disrespectful — it’s disrespectful in his or her manner. That child will never, never be able to compete in the marketplace of America… never. And it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents. You’re the ones hurting these vulnerable children.

    You want a conversation, you got it. You want a better situation for blacks, give them a chance to revive their neighborhoods and culture. Work with the good people to stop the bad people. Pumping money into the chaos does little. You can’t legislate good parenting or responsible entertainment. But you can fight against the madness, with discipline, a firm message and little tolerance for excuse-making.

    It is now time for the African-American leadership, including President Obama to stop the nonsense. Walk away from the world of victimization and grievance and lead the way out of this mess.

    And that’s “The Memo.”

    followup on last night’s show

    • S7teen70six

      This is the dismissive, know it all, pompous blowhard O’Reilly that I am not particularly fond of. Claiming that only he is talking about these problems. Got narcissism?

      • Deapster

        So far actually he is the only one bluntly putting these issues on the table and taking no back talk. Cut him some slack. He took the issues to prime time.

        • S7teen70six

          “taking no back talk”

          Do you really believe that is a solution to the problem? It seems to me that we have way too many people taking no back talk and not enough people having civil conversations. And a hint as to what a civil conversation actually means: People take turns speaking to and listening to others. They do so sincerely and respectfully with the purpose of solving problems.

          Anyone can be a blowhard. How do you think Sharpton and Jackson have managed to stay in business for so long?

          • DianaLC

            Hannity’s show creeped me out again–too many people butting in trying to make a point, none of the points being made addressed the points made before. Nothing really discussed, just a lot of personal ideas being thrown out.

            • KenoshaMarge

              It seems almost any program on FOX these days has two people talking over each other. That’s not a discussion that’s a free for all. Not interested in such. Let each side make their point, if they have one.

          • Retired_from_SPOnaj

            By extorting white guilt.

        • elizabethrc

          Correct! I listened to part of a panel discussion Hannity had last night. It’s people like Jammu (don’t remember last name), who is a black commentator. She does what so many who speak from a weak position does: she tries to dominate the conversation, will not answer uncomfortable questions but deflects to her own points, instead.
          More moderators need to cut these people off, tell them point blank what they are doing and then ignore them for the rest of the discussion.
          I’m glad O’Reilly said these things. We need more people like him who stop the gasbags in their tracks. A little less ego would be nice, though!

          • KenoshaMarge

            I refuse to watch any program that has that Jammu person on it. She’s a waste of time.

            • S7teen70six

              I’ve never seen this Shamu person before but after watching the Hannity clip I can only agree.

          • Retired_from_SPOnaj

            As a whale commentator, that Jammu is a killer!

      • DianaLC

        I have to agree. With O’Reilly a person has to agree that it’s his way or the highway. Morial wasn’t making his points clear, so I can’t explain them, but he offered O’Reilly a chance to go in a really dig deeper in the community. The public service announcements O’Reilly kept pushing aren’t really as effective as perhaps other efforts. Public opinion does have to change, but it takes more than billboards to cause the change.

        • S7teen70six

          I’d like to see Blowhard Bill put his money where his big mouth is and create these billboards and public service announcements for the black community. Wouldn’t that be a hoot?

  • KataKimbe

    I agree with all of what he said. Media Matters is going bonkers over it.

    • S7teen70six

      They are complaining that the penalties for selling crack cocaine are stronger than powder cocaine. And because black people buy more crack cocaine than powder there is a disproportionate amount of blacks in prison. They of course neglect to mention that crack is much more addictive and cheaper than powder cocaine, thus the more stringent penalties. No where do they mention that maybe blacks shouldn’t be using or selling crack. That would be accepting responsibility for something within their own “community” instead of blaming whitey. Can’t have that.

      • Deapster

        Dismiss – divert – denigrate – deny. Don’t let them change the talking points.

      • jrterrier

        Actually, the inversion of penalties between crack and powder does not make much sense even if crack is more addictive. One ounce of cocaine makes about one ounce of crack.
        Yet:
        500 grams cocaine = 5 to 40 yrs prison
        28 grams crack = 5 to 40 yrs prison
        So the Colombian importer is getting a more lenient sentence than the street level dealer.

        • S7teen70six

          I’ve seen what crack can do to people that I’ve known since they were kids. And I had an 86 year old aunt that was raped by a fucking crack head. I have zero empathy for anyone that gets involved in taking or selling the drug. And I’d like to see the Columbian importers face the death penalty because that’s what crack does to people. It puts them and anyone that gets in their way on a fast track path toward death.

    • KenoshaMarge

      If Media Matters is going bonkers he must have done something right.
      Not an O’Reilly fan but once in a while he does it right. I think this was one of those times.

      And I remember my first years of teaching when the newest “freedom” for a female teacher was that we could wear pants instead of dresses, but only if they were part of a “pants suit.”

      I’m usually still taken back when I see a young female teacher wearing jeans.

      I’m waiting for them to assert their constitutional right to receive daily doses of medical marijuana at the nurse’s station.

    Because a young person was followed around a department store is justification to burn down cities, kill each other and high-jack the legal process? Maybe I missed something in Obama’s speech.

  • KenoshaMarge

    I don’t usually listen to the windbag and genuinely don’t “like” him. But, this time, with this he hit the nail on the head and I applaud his outrage, his solutions and his honesty.

    He has to know that he will be attacked and smeared relentlessly for the high crime of telling people who don’t want to hear the truth, the truth.

    Bravo O’Reilly! And I never thought I’d say that.

  • Deapster

    He hit all the key points, right on target. Needs wide viewing and become the basis for our “frank conversation about race”:

    1. Black single parent pregnancies
    2.Black community drugs and violence
    3. Media pandering worst black gangsta values
    4. Reporting facts about black community is not profiling

    • Hunn Innor

      You need to report the right facts and the causes behind those facts. The facts themselves are pretty meaningless.

      “this is the residue left in the black ghetto experience — and why”

      the “and why” is the key question… I ask you “why”

  • shelldoll2

    I grew up in the inner city. One of my best friends, a Vietnam Vet, was murdered by another black man. My friend was like a brother to me. He told me to not fall for slick lines and finish my education. He was one of the reasons I entered the military. I’m in no way fond of Bill O’Reilly but in this instance he’s right. I was taught growing up that charity begins at home and spreads abroad. In other words, get your own house in order then you can help others. I lived through the riots and the Civil Rights era. MLK Jr. would be appalled at the state of the black community today.

    • S7teen70six

      I couldn’t agree with your last sentence more.

      • Deapster

        MLK would be proud of the black middle class and the rise of black conservative voices at the national level.

        He would only be appalled at the numbers who continue to trap themselves in the black ghetto experience; after decades of equal opportunity, affirmative action and abolishment of all prior legal obstructions.

        My guess is MLK would turn his back on them in shame. And so should we.

        • shelldoll2

          Yes he would. But our current “black leaders” dismiss the fact that MLK Jr. was a Republican. Why? It was because it was Democrats that obstructed rights for black Americans for decades, They were not all Dixiecrats. It was widespread throughout the party.

          • KataKimbe

            MLK Jr. was a registered Independent who voted mostly Democrat per his niece. His father was a Republican.

            • shelldoll2

              I stand corrected. Of course he would not be a Republican. He was unaffiliated. The Republicans, and some were killed for it, fought tooth and nail for equal rights while the Democrats fought tooth and nail against those rights. Historical fact. My bad.

    • DianaLC

      Makes me very sad to hear about your murdered friend, no matter how long ago that may have been.

      • shelldoll2

        Thank you. I still miss him.

    • MG6

      Booker T Washington gave the AA community a warning about those who will make money out of their troubles. But then again, the AA leadership ignored this warning because it cut’s into their money making. Can’t imagine what type of job Al and Jesse J (Santita and the rest of the family) will have in order to make a living.

    • Popsmoke

      Own house in order? Well I agree with more of your comment. But lets remember…

      Exod 12:37-42; Matt 12:14-21

      When Jesus realized this, he withdrew from that place. Many people followed him, and he cured them all, but he warned them not to make him known. Even when the Pharisees are trying to put him to death, Jesus cares for others and cures them of their afflictions. This is a reminder of our obligation to tend the needs of others despite our own trials. We cannot allow our own struggles to be an obstacle to our compassion for the plight of the needy among us. We cannot turn away the poor, the sick and the suffering no matter what troubles we face as individuals and as a church. Heal us, O Lord, and renew us with your gentle touch, we pray.

      • shelldoll2

        But we are mere humans not The Son of God. I’m not advocating ignoring the plight of others. I have set up activities to raise funds to help others. I have donated to charities for decades. I sat beside beds of my fellow Vets that were permanently paralyzed and comforted and fed them when their own families abandoned them. In fact, one Vet nurse praised me for taking such good care of my father. This Vet was not my biological father. My father died when I was five. But when we talked he was the closest thing to a father I’d ever known. I mourn his death to this day. When I say take care of your own house I do not mean ignore the plight of others. Charity begins at home means you can see the suffering right around you and try to heal it. You can play the blame game all day. That only feeds your own ego until you get off of your butt and do something for others.

        • Popsmoke

          Charity starts at home indeed…and I am sure you do an amazing job of helping others. But lets remember that must include the outcasts of our own society. That is true charity. 

          • shelldoll2

            I don’t have an outcast system. You don’t know all of the people I have helped that would be considered “socially unacceptable”. It’s their story to tell. Not mine. My ego is not that big.

            • shelldoll2

              Also skin color was not a factor

              • S7teen70six

                A sick fact in this day and age is that if you do NOT use skin color as a factor you ARE a racist. The progressive motto is: “Don’t be colorblind, be color minded.”

      • Sam

        Is it really charitable or loving to give someone what makes it possible for them to continue traveling down a path of destruction?

      • beyond partisan

        These people are already *getting* charity in the form of welfare and Section 8 housing. At some point they need to help themselves! You can’t force them to get motivated to learn or go get new skills to get a job – THEY have to want it!

  • binky354

    I didn’t watch last night, bet it was good. O’Reilly should know all there is to know about sanctimony.

  • DianaLC

    I saw this last night also. I was surprised about O’Reilly’s passion as he gave the talking points. He doesn’t have the time to elaborate, but if people just took his talking points and elaborated on them, we might get somewhere with solving the problems.

    I am so very saddened by the images I see of the trashed areas of Detroit. You just don’t expect to see that in the U.S. My son’s father-in-law from Istanbul, that very ancient city, became very upset when he saw someone had left a candy wrapper in the street of my son’s development in a small TN town. He had been so amazed by the clean streets of the U.S. that he saw because he was so used to the tiny, crowded, old, and dirty streets he had grown up with.

    This IS an issue we all have to help resolve, but I get very angry when we are told what the solutions should be, not asked what we think might help.

    Why not accept help in the form of large money grants for charter schools? It’s working in New Orleans.

    The idea I’ve always had is that we need to limit the public support for babies born out of wedlock to just one per person. You give the support, then you give the help getting on birth control, and you refuse to give additions support when the woman gets pregnant again anyway.

    I’ve known poor white girls who come from bad home environments do just that to get up and out of their bad situations. They have the baby, get the public support, get the public education in programs available for young unwed mothers, and make something of their lives. I don’t mind helping in that way.

    Too bad the people who needed to hear O ‘Reilly’s rant won’t really pay attention, will tune him out because, as they’ve been told, he’s a right wing nut job.

    • binky354

      “The idea I’ve always had is that we need to limit the public support for babies born out of wedlock to just one per person. You give the support, then you give the help getting on birth control, and you refuse to give additions support when the woman gets pregnant again anyway.”

      I’d go one step futher – I’d make birth control a mandatory requirement for receiving that public support.

    there has to be some waking up and self awareness in the black community. there is the good , the bad, and the ugly in every race. excuses can no longer be tolerated. Responsibility must be assumed.

    One thing that has puzzled me, why does the black community tear down those blacks that have worked and are succeeding in life and could be great examples to they their young, but build up those who would teach nothing good to their young?

    • foxyladi14

      They just have not been taught better by their elders.

      • elizabethrc

        Someone on another blog argued that no one offers solutions for the black situation. His suggestion was that they are incapable of figuring out how to change, that it’s too hard for them.
        Parents showing their kids that they are loved and respected must be too hard. Setting consequences for bad actions must be too hard. Making their kids stay in school must be too hard.
        One lame excuse after another. If they can’t hack doing the things it takes to be a functioning member of society tells me that they shouldn’t be part of our society. Harsh? You bet, but they are the authors of their own fate by expecting everything and giving nothing.

        • S7teen70six

          When someone as powerful a role model as our president tells them that it’s fine to cop out using the whitey is evil so I can’t get ahead strategy it’s no wonder so many kids are lost.

          • shelldoll2

            Yeah white America is so oppressive that many of them voted for me for President. It must be stated that all of those white racists hated that white man Romney more. Why? He had a hidden agenda. He would gut the Civil Rights Act. Oh wait, didn’t the Voting Rights Act bite the dust under Obama? Correct me if I’m wrong. Obama is all for gutting Veterans benefits. The same Vets he sent to war on foreign soil. Many of those Vets are black. They were willing to defend this country without regard to the color of their fellow Americans. Obama became President yet he still proclaims victim status.I am sick and tired all of Obama’s lying, stealing, and living high off the hog that he and his minions do.

    • S7teen70six

      Actually Juan Williams was out front on these issues long before O’Reilly. It’s one of the reasons I’ve tried to respect him.

      • HELENK2

        mostof the time when I see juan williams he is so busy making excuses for backtrack, that I just tune him out.

      If my memory serves me right during the 2012 campaign, Romney got a standing ovation in front of NAACP when he hit on a lot of the same points, after being initially boo-ed for just showing up.

      • shelldoll2

        Exactly. I watched that video. Romney promised to be the President of all Americans. He was mentioned how he wanted all Americans to succeed. Many people, that held Romney’s Mormon faith against him, forget that Mormons were also killed for just being Mormons. Now these were “white folks”.
        Does the Mormon church have a racist past? Yes. But how many of us have pasts we’ve overcome and have seen the error of our ways? There is no perfection in humankind. If there is also no forgiveness then “What Did Jesus Do”? He never excused sins. But he did preach forgiveness. Christianity is based on forgiveness. I guess some of our “black leadership” have forgotten that.

        • Nor_Wester

          Many noble sentiments on this blog. I don’t think they (blacks) have forgotten anything.
          They (NAACP) etc are finally showing their full colours and whitey is the mega debit/credit card.

          It isn’t their fault don’t you know, same excuse as all of the African countries in the year 2013…

          Wake up America. Start putting your own ” Whitey group” first for a change and see how they like their own medicine.
