Bigoted O’Reilly Angers View Hosts: ‘Muslims Killed Us on 9-11′ (Video)
October 14, 2010
(ChattahBox Political News)— Bill O’Reilly is a loudmouth bully. Everyone has an embarrassing relative like Fox News’ the O’Reilly Factor host. You know, the obstinate bigoted opinionated type with a short fuse, who shouts others down and physically intimidates anyone who disagrees with his nonsense. O’Reilly took his bullying to the ladies of ABC’s The View today with expected results. He was rude, loud and demeaning. But when he declared that “Muslims killed us on 9-11″ that proved too much for co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar. Goldberg responded to O’Reilly’s religious bigotry by uttering “that’s bullshit,” before she and Behar walked off the set in protest.
O’Reilly’s remarks were made during a heated discussion on the proposed Park 51 Islamic center in Lower Manhattan. But O’Reilly referred to it as the “Ground Zero Mosque,” saying it was “inappropriate.”
When Goldberg asked O’Reilly why building an Islamic community center blocks away from Ground Zero was “inappropriate” he responded, “because Muslims killed us on 911.”
At that point, Behar and Goldberg beat a hasty exit. The two hosts only returned after O’Reilly later apologized and clarified his remarks to say radical extremist Muslims were behind the terrorist attacks of 911.
