Bill O’Reilly tonight remarked on an op-ed article in “Time” written by NBA star Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The op-ed about Donald Sterling’s racist remarks says, in part, “Let’s use this tawdry incident to remind ourselves of the old saying: ‘Eternal vigilance is the price of freedom.’ Instead of being content to punish Sterling and go back to sleep, we need to be inspired to vigilantly seek out, expose, and eliminate racism at its first signs.”
O’Reilly said that if Abdul-Jabbar’s vision were to come true, we’d be a nation of witch hunters.
“The Factor” host said that Sterling is just one man, and his thoughts do not reflect anything.
“A call for all Americans to seek and expose racism is quite something else – it’s a vigilante situation," he said. "Again, that’s dangerous.”
O’Reilly said it’s clear that political correctness has taken deep root in this country.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was interviewed on ABC news to discuss Donald Sterling on his racist rant. He was asked if the NBA turned a blind eye to him, but Jabbar said it is a much bigger issue for all of America.
Bill O'Reilly took up for Rep. Louie Gohmert during his Talking Points Memo and accused Attorney General Eric Holder of "using his skin color as a shield" after he finally got tired of Gohmert's badgering over their Fast & Furious witch hunt.
