Calling it a “hate group,” conservative Fox News host Bill O’Reilly on Monday pledged to dismantle the Black Lives Matter movement, which is shining the spotlight on police brutality and violence across America. According to Raw Story:
“I’m gonna tell you right now, I’m gonna put them out of business,” he told O’Reilly Factor guest Mary Katharine Ham. “And any media person who supports them, I’m gonna put them on this program and put a picture of them on the air.”
“But do political movements and political rhetoric cause murder?” Ham countered. “‘Cause if you go down that road, are you allowed to criticize the police in public? Are you allowed to criticize the state?”
Ham and another guest, political pundit Juan Williams, disagreed with O’Reilly that Black Lives Matter is a hate group, and that the movement is the “manifestation of the rhetoric and vilification of law enforcement” promulgated by President Barack Obama, notes the publication.
We say enough of the vilification of Black Lives Matter, which is shining the spotlight on a longstanding problem in America. Clearly the movement is making a tremendous impact, otherwise conservatives wouldn’t acknowledge it.
