Disgraced And Fired, Bill O'Reilly Labeled A 'White Nationalist' By Sharpton

Bill O’Reilly “promoted white nationalism” during his tenure as the top-rated host on Fox News, the Rev. Al Sharpton declared Wednesday, according to the Washington Examiner.

The liberal activist, on his own news program on MSNBC, cheered a Fox News announcement earlier in the day that O’Reilly would no longer appear on the network. The longtime conservative host lost his job because of multiple sexual-harassment allegations against him. O’Reilly and Fox News have already paid about $13 million in legal settlements to five female accusers, The New York Times reported.

Sharpton, after initially promising to avoid calling O’Reilly names, told his viewers that the commentator “certainly promoted a very clear and in no way nuanced white nationalism, and saying he said the white establishment like he was a spokesman for it.” Sharpton added: “He became the spokesman for the right wing in this whole kind of going back to the pre-civil rights days, in my judgment.”

MSNBC showed video from the night of the 2012 presidential election when O’Reilly proclaimed: “The white establishment is now the minority.” Sharpton claimed the comment was “in its own essence race-based and he, I think, really felt that way in all that he expressed.” In another clip, O’Reilly could be heard calling the hair of California Democratic Congresswoman Maxine Waters a “James Brown wig.”

Sharpton also accused O’Reilly of making racist remarks at a dinner that both men attended in Harlem in 2007. O’Reilly purportedly cited the event’s “primarily black patronship,” and expressed surprise that there “wasn’t any kind of craziness at all.” Sharpton pointed out that he and O’Reilly have frequently clashed because of their political differences, as well as over race issues. O’Reilly once referred to his MSNBC rival as a “race hustler.”

The Times reported Wednesday that an internal investigation by Fox News revealed many cases in which O’Reilly allegedly harassed various women who worked at the network. More than 50 companies recently pulled their advertisements from “The O’Reilly Factor,” which is to continue with a different name.
