Bill O’Reilly Says Liberals Want to Destroy ‘White Establishment’ (Video)

“The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with,” O’Reilly says

Bill O’Reilly got the Internet fuming when he said that liberals are out to take down the “white establishment.”

The Fox News anchor made the comments during a segment of “The O’Reilly Factor” Tuesday that focused on calls by the left to abolish the electoral college after Hillary Clinton’s loss to Donald Trump.

“This is all about race,” O’Reilly said. “The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with. Therefore white working class voters must be marginalized.”

“Summing up, the left wants power taken away from the white establishment, and they want a profound change in the way America is run,” he concluded. “Taking voting power away from the white precincts is the quickest way to do that.”

The comments almost instantly drew strong reactions online. Some have argued that O’Reilly was speaking facetiously, using the term “white establishment” to criticize a liberal idea that is perpetrated by the media. Others feel that O’Reilly’s comments exposed the right’s preference to whites over people of color.
