Take heart, white people! Bill O’Reilly is not just looking out for you, it’s some kind of personal mission. In yet another discussion about the Norfolk, Virginia beating case of two white reporters by a black mob, O’Reilly told his viewers last night, “As you may know, The Factor’s been following the story because the media in Norfolk and the police were very reluctant to aggressively pursue the case so we had to in the name of justice.” With all due respect, Bill, I think it’s pretty clear you’re doing it in the name of your own agenda.
Now that O’Reilly has stuck his nose in the case and arrests have been made, he said he feels “partially vindicated.” He was assured by radio talk show host Dave Parker last night that the minors who have been arrested will be treated as adults – i.e. harshly – which, it seemed, is just what O’Reilly wanted. “Kids can kill people,” he said. “In a mob situation, they have to be held accountable.” Apparently, not rushing to judgment is reserved for whites others.
Parker said the community is satisfied with the way the case has been going and expects a “measured” response. He also noted that the two reporters – the real victims of the crime – are “exceptionally happy” with the way the case is proceeding. In other words, Virginians don’t want O’Reilly butting in and inflaming the situation.
“All we want is justice to be done,” O'Reilly reiterated. Then, he went on to stir the racial pot by saying that if the reporters had been black, they never would have been attacked. “But the people of Norfolk don’t want to be branded with that label - for economic reasons, for pride reasons.” Apparently, they (and we) need O’Reilly to be a racial “truthteller” for them. And yet, O’Reilly has offered up very few details about what who was arrested, what for and what kind of evidence there is.
But as Parker went on to let O’Reilly know that his listeners take great exception to having their community portrayed as having a race problem, O’Reilly insisted he was not tarring the “law-abiding people.” He added, “We were saying that there were (sic) a mob of blacks, who attacked two whites, simply because they were white. There’s no other reason on earth, OK. And the community tried to cover it up. All of that is true. Now, if they attacked two whites, then you got a problem. You got a problem, Mr. Parker!”
“This could have happened anywhere,” crusader O’Reilly acknowledged. “But it did happen and we had to shed light on it in order to get justice. We think that justice now in motion and that’s a good thing.”
So while white Americans with a racial grudge can rest easy knowing that O'Reilly has their racial back, if you're a black person named Eric Holder, it's not so much. As I'll show in my next post.
NOTE TO BILLY
We hear Hannity is itching for your # spot.
Whoops, Billyboy. I think you forgot to include someone in your list of folks who were “very reluctant to aggressively pursue the case.” To refresh your memory, the VICTIMS were also “very reluctant”—but I guess, the victims’ wishes are of less importance than your need to satisfy your overblown ego, isn’t that right, Billyboy?
Right, BillO — ‘cause, if there’s one thing white people in this country NEVER EVER get, it’s justice.
SMH . . .
Didn’t think so.
Nice to see Bill can finally admit he’s a vigilante.
