Monday on Fox New Channel’s “The O’Reilly factor,” host Bill O’Reilly called in from his vacation to demand the immediate resignation of New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
“The protesters who yelled we want dead cops,” O’Reilly said. “Those people should be shunned. If you know them, never speak to them again. They aided this. Those protesters who yelled “we want dead cops.” Now, let’s go to the true villain in the case, but it does not have anything to do with the direct murder of the officers. I want to be clear on that. By the way, does the fact that [shooter] Brinsley is black have anything to do with the African-American community? No. Just as if a bad cop does something, you cannot condemn all police. You cannot condemn blacks because of what Brinsley did. Everybody should be clear about that, all right?”
“Bill de Blasio, as I said, is incompetent,” he continued. “He was elected in an election in New York city that few people voted. He was a machine politician. And he is an anti-police individual. Now he is in trouble. Now he is trying to backtrack. He has been anti-police his whole career. Who is his best friend? Al Sharpton. A racial provoker anti-police individual. He, de Blasio, is proud that he told his teenage son that he may face ‘dangers’ when interacting with the NYPD. What type of responsible father tells that to his son? Then after witnessing, because it’s on videotape, two police lieutenants get beaten by a mob, the mayor of New York City says it was an alleged beating. That insulted every single — every officer, all 35,000 NYPD who were insulted. Alleged? You saw it with your own eyes, you pinhead!”
“Once he said that, that was the end,” O’Reilly added. “He lost the police department, and then when he went to the hospital over the weekend where two police officers are being treated, police officers turned their backs on Bill de Blasio, on the mayor of New York City. Good for them. Good for them. This is an individual who should resign today. Today. He cannot run the city. He has lost the control of the police department and the respect. They will never come back. No matter what he says. Because he sided with the protesters, that’s what he did. And he associated with the provocateurs and he has disgraced the office of Mayor of New York City. He should resign.”
