O'Reilly to Hannity: Far Left Mobilizing Minorities To Be Angry, Anti-White; A New Constitution Is The "Endgame"

|

Bill O'Reilly made his return to the FOX News Channel in an appearance on Sean Hannity's show Tuesday night and talked about politics, race, the NFL kneeling controversy, the media, his new book Killing England, what he has been doing since he exited the network and more.

O'Reilly also weighed in on NFL players kneeling during the national anthem and presentation of the flag and said it is a "mob mentality," "an anti-Trump demonstration" that America is an "evil country" where "white supremacists stalk innocent blacks."

According to O'Reilly, "the constitution, the economic system, the leadership, the electoral system" are up for grabs.

"It's a mob mentality; it is an anti-Trump demonstration, that is what it has morphed into. But there is two kinds of dissent. And nobody is saying the players don't have a right to their opinion about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You do. And if you want to feel America is an evil country where the white supremacists stalk innocent blacks, if you want to believe that, you're free to believe that. But it's not true. It's not true," O'Reilly stated.

O'Reilly called what's going on in the NFL "pack dissent" and that the "players are being used" by the "far left" to drive the narrative that the U.S. is an "evil country."

"There is informed dissent and then there is pack dissent," O'Reilly explained. "That's where we're into now, pack dissent. Okay, he says one thing, I say another. And the league and the owners have lost control of it. But the American people I firmly believe 65%, maybe 70% of the American people do not like this situation, are offended by this situation.."

"This is emotion what's happening now," he said of the demonstrations by NFL players. "The far left wants to drive the narrative that the USA is an evil country. Why? They want to change everything. The constitution, the economic system, the leadership, the electoral system. They want across the board change. They use stuff like this to do it. These players are being used."

O'Reilly said there is a reason why a year ago you didn't hear the term 'white supremacist,' only 'white privilege.' He said there are "far left agents" who are using the terms to get rid of capitalism, tear down statues, and destroy the Constitution as it is.

"They don't want capitalism," O'Reilly told Hannity. "They don't want the electoral college. They don't want white people generally calling the shots. So they have to mobilize minority Americans to be angry."

"There is a reason why it's happening," he said. "A year ago you didn't hear the words white supremacist. Didn't hear it. Nobody heard it. It was white privilege.. It's morphed into white supremacists now and people are are buying it. Why? Because the far left agents, and I think they're evil, want to destroy the constitution in the sense that they want it all changed. Who forged it? Slave owners, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington. We can't have a constitution that they made. We have to have a new one. That's the endgame."

As far as a solution, O'Reilly said the gridiron is the "wrong forum" for players who "don't like the country or want to get a point across." O'Reilly suggested players who wish to protest to stay in the locker room.

"So if you don't want to stand up for the national anthem stay in the locker room and then come out. We don't want any political demonstrations because we don't allow pro-American demonstrations," he said.

BILL O'REILLY: It's a mob mentality; it is an anti-Trump demonstration, that is what it has morphed into. But there is two kinds of dissent. And nobody is saying the players don't have a right to their opinion about life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You do. And if you want to feel America is an evil country where the white supremacists stalk innocent blacks, if you want to believe that, you're free to believe that. But it's not true. It's not true.

So there is informed dissent and then there is pack dissent. That's where we're into now, pack dissent. Okay, he says one thing, I say another. And the league and the owners have lost control of it. But the American people I firmly believe 65%, maybe 70% of the American people do not like this situation, are offended by this situation...

A lot of people believe propaganda and there is nothing we can do about it. One of the reasons I wrote Killing England is so that everybody can now know what really happened, how we got our freedom.

I would love to go to every NFL locker room and give these guys the book. Would they read the book? Most of these guys would not. Because, again, they're caught up in emotion. This is emotion what's happening now. But the wider picture is and you pointed it out in your monologue. The far left wants to drive the narrative that the USA is an evil country. Why? They want to change everything. The constitution, the economic system, the leadership, the electoral system. They want across the board change. They use stuff like this to do it. These players are being used.

HANNITY: How does this end?

O'REILLY: First of all the league is going to have to do something. And what they should do, as I wrote a column for The Hill about it, is say, 'We know some of you don't like the country or want to get a point across. But this is the wrong forum. This is not the forum to do it. So if you don't want to stand up for the national anthem stay in the locker room and then come out. We don't want any political demonstrations because we don't allow pro-American demonstrations.'

The league does not allow that. There were many, many Giant players, New York Giant and Jet players after 9/11 wanted to show on their uniforms their solidarity with the families and the NFL wouldn't allow it.

HANNITY: We have the slaughter of cops in Dallas and the Cowboys wanted to honor the local police. and they wouldn't let them.

O'REILLY: And they wouldn't let them. So you have to be consistent. So the league says, already, you guys who don't want to stand up for the national anthem, you stay in the locker room after it's over, you can come out. That's it, okay, alright?

HANNITY: Let me ask you a broader, bigger question. You talked about this for many years on your show. You have your podcast now and your columns. But every two and four years and then when we have these other bigger issues emerge the issue of race it is used as a wedge issue. The Missouri radio ad that said if you elect Republicans the black churches are going to burn. The James Byrd ad. Al Gore saying when he's running for president to a predominantly black audience Republicans have the wrong agenda for African-Americans, changing his cadence. They don't want to count you in the census. That is a lie. And it divides the country. And it is dividing the country along racial lines in a way that is hurtful to the country.

O'REILLY: And then the media drive in and the entertainers drive it. But there is a reason why it's happening. A year ago you didn't hear the words white supremacist. Didn't hear it. Nobody heard it. It was white privilege. And in my Levittown neighborhood about eight miles away from Hannity's home I had guys in undershirts falling apart -- where is my white privilege, alright? That's what you had a year ago. It's morphed into white supremacists now and people are are buying it. Why? Because the far left agents, and I think they're evil, want to destroy the constitution in the sense that they want it all changed. Who forged it? Slave owners, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington. We can't have a constitution that they made. We have to have a new one. That's the endgame.

HANNITY: You were on my radio show and I think this was the most important point you made that I agreed with that I think is the most dangerous for the country. Because you took on the monument issue. Now you can add the NFL issue now and institutions in this country that are under fire every day. I'll add to that the two-to-four year playing of the race card the only -- one of the big weapons in the playbook of the Democrats. But ultimately you say if they get rid of the monuments, if they get rid of our history, they can take a knee during the anthem and diss the flag, then ultimately it's really the constitution they want to change. I want you to make that point.

O'REILLY: They're after a -- they don't want capitalism. They don't want the electoral college. They don't want white people generally calling the shots. So they have to mobilize minority Americans to be angry.


O'Reilly on Jaguars-Ravens players protesting the flag and anthem at an NFL game held in London on Sunday:


"Can you imagine putting your life on the line, in Afghanistan, and having just a leisure time and wanting to watch a football game and seeing your players, your American players, disrespect the country and the flag on foreign soil? Can you imagine how painful that was?" O'Reilly asked.
