Bill O'Reilly brought on serial liar Dick Toe-Sucker Morris to discuss Fox's latest bit of race baiting which Dave already told us about here: Fox News runs incendiary video of New Black Panther's racist rant. Here are some other racists they don't show you.

As Media Matters pointed out, it was the Justice Department under George W. Bush that decided not to pursue criminal charges in the case:

On The O'Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly and Fox News legal analysts Lis Wiehl and Kimberly Guilfoyle criticized President Obama's administration for not pursuing criminal charges against members of the New Black Panther Party. In fact, it was the Justice Department under President Bush that decided not to pursue criminal charges in the case.

It was Bush's DOJ that decided not to press criminal charges

Bush administration decided to file a civil, not a criminal, complaint. In his May 14 testimony before the United States Commission on Civil Rights, Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez said that the Bush administration's Justice Department "determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes" but instead decided to "file a civil action on January 7, 2009." From Perez's testimony:

PEREZ: Moving to the matter at hand, the events occurred on November 4th, 2008. The Department became aware of these events on Election Day and decided to conduct further inquiry.

After reviewing the matter, the Civil Rights Division determined that the facts did not constitute a prosecutable violation of the criminal statutes. The Department did, however, file a civil action on January 7th, 2009, seeking injunctive and declaratory relief under 11(b) against four defendants.

But in the world of the O'Reilly and Morris' out there, it's Media Matters that are the liars here. And whoever the hell they're talking about at MSNBC. Who knows. All I know is that O'Reilly, Morris or anyone else as ClusterFox had no business criticizing anyone at any of the other networks. Talk about one huge case of projection.

These two clowns wrap up the segment with trying to pretend that Obama has lost the right that he never had and the center and that he's moving further to the left to keep that support. In what world they think that Obama is not a centrist is beyond me but that's their lie of the day and if called on it I'm sure the two of them are going to stick to it.

I hope Bill Clinton is proud of himself for inflicting this idiot who throws him under the bus on a weekly basis on the rest of us.
