Apparently calling for calm following the death of Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO is Bill O'Reilly's definition of whipping people into a frenzy. O'Reilly was so enraged that Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson showed up in Ferguson that he decided to call into his network while he was on vacation so he could scream and yell and basically just let everyone know how much he hates the two of them.
Bill O’Reilly was supposed to be on vacation tonight. But he was apparently so “angry” over the coverage of the situation in Ferguson, Missouri that he decided to call into a special primetime edition of The Five to vent over what he sees as a false narrative being put forth by “racial agitators.”
“I want the Factor audience and everybody else it know that this is just bull, just bull,” O’Reilly said via phone. He condemned people for trying to convey “the truth” of what caused a police officer to shoot and kill 18-year-old unarmed Michael Brown when they have “no blanking idea” what happened. [...]
“Now I’m hearing from the National Action Network, which is a despicable organization, that this is a smear that they put out of this video of the victim assaulting a clerk and stealing some stuff in a convenience store,” O’Reilly continued. “There comes a point where we know what your up to,” he said to the “racial agitators” out there.
Later, O’Reilly invoked the name of his frequent nemesis, MSNBC’s Al Sharpton specifically. “I hate this ‘No Justice, No Peace’ slogan. I hate this,” he said. “Whose justice are you talking about? Yours? Al Sharpton’s justice? If you want Al Sharpton’s justice, you are going to have anarchy in this country.”

Our friends over at News Hounds have more on that and O'Reilly's double standard when it comes to what sort of protesters he likes. Read more...
