Got Islamophobia? Bill O’Reilly Says “Muslims Killed Us On 9-11” During Discussion Of NY “Mosque”

Reported by Priscilla - October 14, 2010 -

Bill O’Reilly was a guest on this morning’s “The View” and things got a little lively. During a discussion of Park 51, O’Reilly said that Obama’s support for the mosque demonstrates the “gulf” between Obama and the American people. When Joy Behar said, “this is America" and "I'm an American," America’s patronizing daddy reprimanded her with “listen to me because you’ll learn.” There was more back and forth about “the mosque” before America’s Catholic daddy said that the location of the "mosque" was inappropriate because “Muslims killed us on 9-11.” Whoppi Goldberg said that this was “bullshit” and cited Timothy McVay’s having been a Christian (he received the "last sacraments" from a Catholic priest before his execution) after which she and Behar walked off the set. As they walked off, O'Reilly "joked" that they were leaving because "Muslims killed us." Barbara Walters chided her co-hosts; but she did assert that “You cannot take a whole religion and demean them because of what some did.” (So I guess it’s cool with Bill if we say that Catholics killed innocent British and Irish civilians and Catholics put the Jews on the trains to Auschwitz! And did Bill refer to anti-abortion domestic terrorist, Eric Rudolph, as a Catholic cuz he was!) After the walk off, however, Bill did assert that he wasn't demeaning all Muslims and admitted that he expressed himself "inartfully." He then used the term "radical" Muslims as a result of having been "schooled" by Ms. Walters. I guess that's progress!
