Bill O'Reilly Claims Black Lives Matter Is ‘Killing Americans’

The Fox News host kicked off his latest show by blaming the “Ferguson Effect” for the rising homicide rate in the United States.

Bill O’Reilly, the man who once had an all-white panel declare African-Americans the real “social problem” and called them ill-equipped for jobs, just explained to the audience of his show, “The O’Reilly Factor,” how the Black Lives Matter movement is supposedly killing Americans.

“How Black Lives Matter is killing Americans: that is the subject of tonight’s talking points memo,” he began, before diving into a racist rant about black teens committing homicides.

“The media will not spotlight that much of the violent crime in America is being committed right now by young black men,” O’Reilly said on Wednesday. “Blacks of all ages commit homicide at a rate of 8 times higher than whites and Hispanics combined. Conclusion: There is a violent subculture in the African-American community that should be exposed and confronted.”

The Fox News host also claimed that shootings are up around 80 percent in Chicago this year because the police have stopped stopping and searching suspicious people. He blames it all on the “Ferguson Effect” – the uprisings that took place in Ferguson, Missouri, and around the country following Michael Brown’s death at the hands of police.

“Enter the Black Lives Matter crew, which roams around the country promoting a false narrative that American police officers are actively hunting down and killing blacks,” O’Reilly continued. He also showed footage of African-American protesters interrupting an event at Chicago’s DePaul University. "In addition, Black Lives Matter is also infringing on freedom of assembly and freedom of expression,” he added.
