On Friday’s edition of the O’Reilly Factor, Fox News journalist Bill O’Reilly tackles the rising number of homicides in Chicago by proclaiming that Black Lives Matter activists, President Barack Obama, Rev. Al Sharpton, and Rev. Jesse Jackson will not save residents.
In Friday’s episode, O’Reilly had this to say in his “Impact Segment:”
“It is long past time for a state of emergency to be declared in certain Chicago neighborhoods. It is also long past time for gun-wielding thugs to be punished severely with very long prison terms.
Finally, a message for folks trapped in bad Chicago neighborhoods: You guys have got to speak out. You have to march, you have to demonstrate and you have to protest. Don’t count on Black Lives Matter or Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson or even President Obama. They haven’t shown up. They don’t seem to care.
If it were white people gunnin’ ‘em down, you know they’d be in there. If white people were gunnin’ em down, they’d be in there. But it’s Black gangs gunnin’ ‘em down.
… My opinion is, they don’t care and because they don’t care, you can slap a passive racism issue on it.
If I were the mayor of Chicago, you know this wouldn’t be happening and if I can stop it, they can stop it.”
