Why Does Bill O’Reilly Promote a Radical Leftist, Black Racist?

A while ago, Bill O’Reilly invited Marc Lamont Hill on his show to talk about Iran. Nice. He’s an African American, having more African Americans on national TV to talk about politics is a good thing.
Because Lamont Hill is, firstly, not a foreign policy expert but an expert “on hip-hop culture.” His academic degree is in education.
Hill responded with 20 additional tweets, including a confirmation of his devotion to Shakur. Horowitz blogged again on September 28:
Marc Lamont Hill is at it again, posting twenty tweets on my reply. First the important one:
“Assata Shakur is an American hero & freedom fighter. I’ll always stand next to her.”
Swindle wasn’t the only one researching Hill’s political and social views. Accuracy In Media’s (AIM) Cliff Kincaid joined the fun:
He called the notorious anti-white, anti-Jewish Khallid Muhammad a “mentor, teacher, and revolutionary hero,” and believes that the black racist died not from a brain aneurysm but was assassinated. Muhammad was so extreme that he was ousted from the Nation of Islam because of his hatred of Jews.
He gave a lecture on “The Importance of Ideological Training in the New Millenium (sic)” at the Polymathematic University’s “Political Education Program for the Poor Righteous Communist Party.”
He declared on a “MySpace” page that the people he’d like to meet personally include Assata Shakur, Louis Farrakhan, Fidel Castro, and Mumia Abu Jamal, another convicted cop-killer.
He speaks on “The Importance of the Nation of Islam to Hip-Hop Culture” and says that he once belonged to something called the Ansaaru Allah Community, an Islamic sect with doctrines similar to the Nation of Islam that has been accused of being a religious cult.
When Hill was asked about his political beliefs, he removed the image of Assata Shakur from his Twitter page and deleted his myspace page, but failed to answer Horowitz’s and Swindle’s questions.
That’s bad enough, you’d say, but what’s worse is that O’Reilly invited Hill on “The O’Reilly Factor.” This man should be shunned, not promoted. You don’t have to be an expert to talk about America’s Middle East policy – thank God, for we bloggers would quickly have nothing to write about if all we could write about was our academic expertise – but you’d expect O’Reilly to at least invite someone within the mainstream of politics… God knows the Huffington Post, CNN and the White House don’t need conservatives to promote radical leftists.
