Bill O'Reilly personally diagnosed the black community's problems, lecturing that violent crime rate is due to "personal" choices made by single black mothers and insisting that more parental discipline and increasingly harsh penalties for drug crimes...

This man should be removed from the air. Anyone who listens to him has to be a total ignorant asshole to believe anything that comes out of his mouth.

Here is just another creep, who probably does not even care about his own children. How dare does he insult single moms, and targets his hatred even against black moms. What does the skin colour have to do with being a good or bad mom? Outrageous.

Bill O'Reilly just keeps getting more insane as time goes by. He stands for hate on many levels &~~ insults people all the time. There truly is no value in his words & they just might come back around at him one day & reflect his own image!!!~

"White people do not force black people to have babies out of wedlock"?!!??? The hell they don't! All those legislators taking away choice from women are white!

And I should add, what's wedlock got to do with it? My father died when I was a whole four days old, effectively making my mother a single mother.

I listened to the video, a point he makes is that there is a disintegration in the black families. However he places the fact disintegration that leads to poverty.

I feel he puts the horse before the cart, poverty has lead to the disintegration of families, not the other way.

I also don't think an ad to tell black girls not to get pregnant solves the issue, is like throwing a teaspoon of water on a raging forest fire. What families need are job opportunities that offer "living wage" work, decent educational opportunities, affordable housing. This is another of pointing a finger at people who continue to be oppressed and lack opportunities that others in society take for granted and tell them it's their fault.

Same garbage being fed today, the Banksters crash the markets, but it's the average American who paid the price, with job loss, with home loss, with pensions wiped out, and savings depleted. But no Banker has paid, no instead it's those who are suffering, they are lazy, they should work harder, go get a job ?? when there are no jobs, and take away their Food Stamps, that will somehow force them to do better.

Corporations making record profits yet don't want to pay their help living wages, will do all they can to ship jobs out and pay as little as possible if they must keep a job here. But when people can't live in a better place to raise their children, it's again, the poor person's fault for living next to the crime areas.

Chris Hedges wrote about these "Sacrifice Zones" Here are a couple links to Sacrifice Zones.

Sacrifice Zones

He also has it backwards on the drug situation. When the War On Drugs became a War on People that is also failed policy in this Country. Watch the House I Live In for a historical view on this and how it targets minorities and the poor of any color.

I blame O'Reilly for the ignorance/stupidity, hatred, prejudice, and anger in most GOP voters....causing most of the problems in the world in my opinion.

One of my Senator's wrote a great book called Lies and the Lying Liars who tell them. Bill O'Lielly had a prominent role and this cat has not changed his stripes. He is one of the biggest fools in the country, contradicts himself numerous times in the same show (which I know from watching Rachel Maddow and Lawrence O'Donnell as I have never actually watched Bill's show) and flip flops faster than any politician in history. Why he has a job is beyond me, except for the Faux part and Rupert, because he is a complete and utter fool. As well as a hypocrite of the first order.

This rant is a DELIBERATE, CONSIDERED ATTEMPT TO DIVIDE "US" AND "THEM".
It is a deliberate, considered attempt to portray Poor Black People as "The Other" - as a faceless mob of identical clones and thugs, as "Them".

These days, it is IMPORTANT THAT WE ALL STAND TOGETHER and NOT let ourselves be divided along the "usual" lines - Working Class and Middle Class, Gay and Straight, Recent Immigrants and Immigrants Generations ago, Men and Women, Black and White - people on Welfare and people scraping by some other way, people with prison records and people without - teens and elders, single parents and "traditional" family structures.

THESE ARE ALL ATTEMPTS TO DIVIDE US - to tell us FALSELY, who our "real Enemy" is.
Then when Push Comes To Shove - will we TURN ON EACH OTHER, as the 1% HOPE AND PRAY that we do - INSTEAD of turning on the Elite 1% who would rule the World??? rule the World to DESTROY the World and all Creatures in it?

In the words of that Old Labor Song - "Which Side are you on...
Which Side are you on..."

When Push Comes To Shove...

This sorry excuse for a human being absolutely adores the money he rakes in for being a mouthpiece for hatred and divisiveness. I wish to believe the extremely bad karma he's spread will come back and bite him in the butt over and over again, for each time he's ranted like this. Otherwise, I generally ignore him & never watch his show.
