Bill O’Reilly Speaks At Al Sharpton’s Conference, Gets Booed

 

FOX News host Bill O’Reilly made an appearance at Reverend Al Sharpton’s conference for his National Action Network Wednesday and received a less than warm welcome.
The talking head of “The O’Reilly Factor”  was booed by the crowd after making comments on racism saying that America had moved on and that,

“Black people need to stop playing the race card.”


Uhhhh….okay.

The mostly Black audience responded with a series of boos expressing their disapproval and Reverend Sharpton even chimed in saying,

“You can boo that one.”


O’Reilly did praise the President however, commending him for not using his race as a factor to win the election.

The National Action Network is meeting in New York from April 14-17 to discuss racial inequality.

Scheduled speakers for the convention are Bill Cosby, Tom Joyner, Roland Martin, Rep. James Clyburn and RNC Chairman Michael Steele.

      Where do you paranoid race baiters get your info? I don’t believe that anyone trying so desperately to make sure “Racism” is alive & well is the fear you will not have that “Huge Playing Card” in your hate arsenal! I’m an old hippie, and I don’t much care how God chose to create me or you. Ricky McDermon

    Despite his amiability, the obsequious media/press and the Administration give Rev. [Nobody knows where he ever attended divinity school except that he was supposedly ordained at 9 or (give me a break)10!] Al [not so sharp] Sharpton much more credit than he actually deserves.

    PS. These are my sentiments and I’m sticking with them.

    I live on the west coast, and see your show late at night after work. I know you work with a network and earn a good living. I’ve also seen you trying to keep the perspective of the basic issues that is important to everyday people. I’ve watched your interview with this Al Sharpton. Eventhough people are trying very hard to believe that no matter what ethnic group a person is, that being an american is the most important thing, this supposedly reverand is an advocate of promoting racism. If he is a man of god, he should be promoting people to come together in peace, not divide them in hate.
