Bill O’Reilly’s Bringing Stupid Back

September 26, 2007 at 9:51 am 5 comments

I know that stupid never really left when comes to the right-wing blowhards at Fox Noise, but Bill O’Reilly is taking it to a whole other level.

After having dinner with Re. Al Sharpton at the legendary soul food restaurant Sylvia’s located in Harlem, O’Reilly had this to say:

I couldn’t get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia’s restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it’s run by blacks, primarily black patronship.

Then in an interview with African-American journalist Juan Williams, he said:

There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘M-Fer, I want more iced tea.’ You know, I mean, everybody was — it was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn’t any kind of craziness at all.

Check out what Cenk of The Young Turks has to say on the issue:

    I know, right? O’Reilly is going to be surprised when he finds out that a fair number of Black folks can’t play basketball, are not as funny as Chris Rock and speak correct English.
