Bill O'Reilly Calls Al Sharpton Racist, Defends Peter King, Likens Michael Jackson to O.J. Simpson

by at . Comments

Last night on the "Talking Points" segment of his Fox News program, The O’Reilly Factor, Bill O'Reilly was simply “fed up with all the adulation” over Michael Jackson.

Among Bill's observations on the day of MJ's memorial service:

  • Jackson’s "incredible selfishness, spending hundreds of millions of dollars on himself while singing ‘We Are The World’" should make anyone nauseous.
  • Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson and other African-Americans are shamelessly “playing the race card” by claiming Jackson as one of their own in death.
  • “If (Jackson) were a white guy,” his behavior would never be tolerated.
  • “You don’t become an African-American icon” if you bleach your skin.

As bad as that was, his guest, "media critic" Bernard Goldberg, was worse.

Goldberg first defended U.S. Rep. Peter King, who has come under fire for calling Jackson a “low-life,” a “pedophile” and a "child molester" over the weekend.

The New York Republican is enraged at people extolling the virtues of Jackson, putting at least part of the blame on media coverage that is "too politically correct."

The icing on the cake came when Goldberg said, “Then again, to many black people, if you remember the reaction after he was acquitted, O.J. Simpson was a hero.”

Here's O'Reilly's "Talking Points" and an interview with Columbia University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, who tried his best to dispute some of the above comments:

What do you think? Are these guys way out of line, even racist? Or are they the only ones taking the media to task for glorifying Michael Jackson?

The occurrence of many uncontrollable events, alexithymia and anxious attachment were associated with vitiligo also in multiple logistic regression analysis. Conclusions: These findings suggest that vulnerability to vitiligo is not increased by stressful events, except for many uncontrollable events. Alexithymia, insecure attachment and poor social support appear to increase susceptibility to vitiligo, possibly through deficits in emotion regulation or reduced ability to cope effectively with stress.

And for all you predjudice jealous haters that keep trying to say Michael Jackson was a child molester; take a look at yourself and say did I witness him molesting any child. For those money hungry PIGS that lied and was after his money their days are yet to come that money will become their DEMISE and they will have to answer to Michael Jackson and God. Because if he was a pedophile their would have been many more complaints about him molesting children a pedophile can not control themself amongst children and he's been around many children and only those two PIGS and their swine parents try to lie so that they can cash in, such trailer trash, only if he wasn't so kind hearted those spics wouldn't have had a chance. Anyway judgement day will come for them very, very soon and we all are going to hear about it. RIP TO THE GREATEST ENTERTAINER MR. MICHAEL JACKSON GOD BLESS YOU!!!!!

Reilly, Reilly,Reilly you poor old soul; stop trying to get attention! Don't be jealous of Michael Jackson because he is more loved and well known worldwide than you will ever be in this life. You're not God, so don't judge. When you take your last breath you better hope you make it to heaven because you're really making an ass out of yourself by being so ignorant. Anyway, Michael Jackson will always be loved by many regardless of your "JEALOUSY" that's all it is "JEALOUSY" PRAY TO GOD THAT WHEN YOUR JUDGEMENT DAY COMES ASK YOUR GOD TO FORGIVE YOU FOR YOUR IGNORANCE.....and for the record Al Sharpton is predjudice just as much as you are, so you all have something in common!!!!!

It's amazing how people put so much blind faith in our justice system. How many times do we see obviously guilty people get off for various reasons. And for the idiot applauding Johnny Cochran for getting a murderer off, you are pathetic. To see guilty people escape punishment is sad , no matter what race you are. I pray that you are never a victim of our flawed justice system. Although I can't judge MJ because I don't know if allegations were true he is meeting the ultimate judge now. If he was innocent or guilty there is no hiding the truth from God. I love MJ's music but cannot speak about his character because I did not know him personally though it seems everyone else talks about him with such confidence you would think they had him on speed dial.
