WATCH: Bill O'Reilly Flips Out on Guest Who Asks Him How Many Black Friends He Has
Bill O'Reilly flipped out on Fox New analyst Kristen Powers on Tuesday, because he really resented the hell out of the fact that she thinks America has a problem with racism. So instead of letting her talk or, say, finish a sentence, he just kept shouting and pointing his finger and saying, "America is not racist."
Oh sure, he acknowledged there are some racist people, but they are a "lunatic fringe," and anyway, every country has some racism problems.
His other guest, Monica Crowley, got to finish all of her sentences, which included statements about the "far left" in this country trying to tear America down, when we have much bigger battles with bad guys like ISIS, so quit criticizing us all the time.
It was colossally juvenile argument dominated by O'Reilly, of course, because he has the biggest loudest microphone.
Some other snippets:
O'Reilly: “I have to wonder why you can’t see what’s happening, because most Americans are not racist. They’re not.”
Powers: “So how many black friends do you have? How many black friends do you have?”
O’Reilly: "If you think most Americans are racist, I’m ashamed of you. I’m ashamed of you.”
Powers: “I’m asking you a serious question. I didn’t say most Americans were racist.”
O'Reilly has invested a great deal of energy and time into denying the existence of white privilege in the past. He thinks that's a big con job.
O'Reilly: ““I’m saying that the world is being told by anti-American haters that we are a rank racist society, and that is a lie.”
And then he gave Monica Crowley the last word because that seems fair.
