Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly is trying to sound smart again, saying the Democratic Party has made black Americans “dependent” on government entitlements. Um, remember Newt Gingrich called President Obama the “Welfare President.” Yeah, that’s Bill O’Reilly’s code word for calling Barack Obama the same thing.
During a segment on his Fox News show last night about African-American support for the Republican Party, host Bill O’Reilly asserted that the roughly 85-90 percent of African-Americans who regularly vote for Democrats only do so because Democrats have made them “dependent” on government “entitlements”:
WILLIE BROWN [FORMER SF MAYOR]: [Democrats] moved in and offered programs and policies that allowed African Americans to become incredibly dedicated and the anchor in many Democratic elections.
O’REILLY: Alright, but that’s a nice view if you’re a Democrat. But someone else would say the Democrats moved in and gave them all kinds of entitlements,making them dependent on the Democratic party and the state, which is not a good thing.
