O’Reilly’s Best Radical Friend: 9/11 Victims Deserved It
posted at 7:28 am on October 7, 2009 by Michael van der Galien
If you read the post I wrote yesterday about Marc Lamont Hill you know that the Fox News analyst and frequent guest on Bill O’Reilly’s “The O’Reilly Factor,” is a radical leftist. He, I showed yesterday linking to several posts at David Horowitz’s NewsRealblog, admires black racists and extremists like Assata Shakur and Khallid Muhammad. They are his heroes.
And still O’Reilly takes this man serious and ignores his radicalism.
Perhaps this evidence of Hill’s radical beliefs will encourage O’Reilly – and Fox News as a whole – to oust him:
Hill: “He has the right to make [those comments], in fact he has the responsibility to make [those comments] as an academic if he believes them to be true… and if he can empirically substantiate them. And I think he’s done that.”
Hill said that about Ward Churchill. Churchill had written an op-ed saying the victims of 9/11 had themselves to thank for the attacks. They, Churchill said, were “little Eichmanns” who deserved to die because of their complicity in the grand American conspiracy to dominate the world.
Notice that Hill didn’t merely say Churchill was right to say what he said “if he believes” those words “to be true,” but that he, Hill, believes Churchill has “empirically substantiated” these comments (that the victims of 9/11 were “little Eichmanns”).
Hill isn’t a truther like Obama’s former Green Jobs Czar Van Jones: he’s worse. He actually believes that the victims of 9/11 deserved to die.
And you know what’s even worse than that? He made those comments on the “O’Reilly Factor.” He said Churchill was right to blame the victims of 9/11 for their own horrible deaths and O’Reilly asked him back on nonetheless. Not once, but dozens of times.
