Fox News host Bill O’Reilly condemned racial “provocateurs” and the Black Lives Matter movement on his show“The O’Reilly Factor” after the Dallas police officer shootings.
O’Reilly turned to the subject of the Black Lives Matter movement and its role in the upheaval. He said that while the Black Lives Matter rally in Dallas Thursday was peaceful leading up to the shooting, protests that occurred on the same day in Oakland, California, were far more aggressive.
“Black Lives Matter,” he concluded, “inflames rather than illuminates. It is essentially a ‘hate America’ group.” He follows similar sentiment shared by Rush Limbaugh, who also lambasted BLM as terrorists.
