Bill O’Reilly Says Jay Z & Kanye West Are A “Fundamental Disease” [VIDEO]


Bill O’Reilly is clearly not a fan of The Throne (Jay Z and Kanye West), or probably any rapper. The FOX News host, and blowhard, feels that one way to help strengthen minority communities is to get rid of the “hardcore gangstas.”

He made the comments while speaking to President Obama senior advisor Valerie Jarrett on The O’Reilly Factor last night (February 28).

Reports Talking Points Memo:

President Barack Obama had invited O’Reilly to the launch of his new initiative called “My Brother’s Keeper” earlier Thursday. The program aims to create opportunities and improve conditions for young minority men, but O’Reilly said he doesn’t believe the White House sees the “urgency” of the situation in the streets.

“You have to attack the fundamental disease if you want to cure it,” O’Reilly told Jarrett. “Now I submit to you that you’re gonna have to get people like Jay Z, Kanye West, all these gangsta rappers to knock it off.”

“They idolize these guys with the hats on backwards, and the terrible rap lyrics and the drug and all of that,” he continued, adding that high-profile figures need to hammer young people with that message to “reverse the peer pressure.”

O’Reilly did think Magic Johnson was good guy, though. However, gangsta rappers, athletes and “tattoo guys,” not so much.

    I’m stunned that it takes more than education to make someone intelligent. He is so out of touch with reality. Good God how scary his comments are. I think if I had the opportunity to speak with this biggot I would say the biggest part of the problem in our youth is people like him who don’t want the black youth to swerve out of the lane they(people like himself) have kept them under control. Kanye is telling the youth that they could be anything they want and not to listen to the Bill O’Reilly’s of the world. He needs to stop watching old hiphop VHS tapes and take a moment to listen to Kanye’s words. He will be pleasantly surprised.

      Exactly this mofo worried about how someone wear there hat. Why don’t this honkeybigot talk about how his ppl (Reagan) infiltrated the community with guns and drugs. Poor ppl don’t have planes and boats. This is a trickle down effect. All is to blame. But white ppl never want to take any ownership for there evil deeds

  • BMG™ Prodigy

    Kanye West is definitely not a hardcore gangsta rapper, O’Reilly is so out of touch with everything

    • bigshot

      Why would you listen to a pale mofo that don’t give a chit about the black community. he has good points but terrible examples. Kanye is dam near the Richard Simmons of rap. I’m not a democrat but dam let the man try and help so called minorities

    • Suburban Princess Dior

      Nor is jay

  • newdnewd

    What the hell is this guy talking about? Jay Z doesn’t even wear his hat backwards and even if he did what does that have anything to do with a man being a gangster? And Jay Z married and then had a baby. Tattoos and hats have nothing to do with being a gangster, I know a neurosurgeon who has these things.

  • prodigious whiz-bang

    LOL this is hilarious gangstesss listen to me listen listen to me hahaa

  • atruesista

    Is he serious. Jay z and Kayne are the least gamgter-ish however the most successful which is probably his real point. The white man who’s ancestors raped and killed almost every other race in the world forcing his opinions and beliefs is judging others. What’s new?

  • Gotcha

    He is totally right! Many black people feel these two have germinated their kids and disrespected the black community.

  • God is My Mojo

    Bill O’ Reily ain’t nothing but Satan’s jealousy in operation.

    • Joshua Carrillo

      Granted he speKs out republican propaganda, but on this case hes right… went to a dentist the other day, he asked a kid to sing his fav song, he said two chainz is his fav rapper, 8 years old to waste…

  • Ms Jane Doe

    The real gangstas are Univerisal & Columbia records…attack them! Jayz and Kanye generate Billions for these companies! They don’t pay them millions to rap about family values either! Go after their bosses they are the real criminals!

  • tammy

    The same could be said about rock bands..and other hardcore rock bands.. That glamorize drugs..alcohol..violent. There are white boys that copy this behavior. Parents need to teach ..their children to idolize them..God..teachers. Also have to teach children to be leaders not followers. Temptations are out there..but u have to rebuke them. Dont idolize celebrities.
