BILL O'REILLY IS SMARTER THAN LAWRENCE O'DONNELL ... Ann Coulter
Ann Coulter Dot Com ^ | 7 August 2013 | Ann Coulter

After attacking Bill O'Reilly's history last week, I'll defend his sociology this week. On Monday, MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell ridiculed Fox News' O'Reilly for saying that single motherhood is responsible for the the high black crime rate.

O'Reilly said, quite correctly: "The reason there is so much violence and chaos in the black precincts is the disintegration of the African-American family. Right now, about 73 percent of all black babies are born out of wedlock. That drives poverty. And the lack of involved fathers leads to young boys growing up resentful and unsupervised. And it has nothing to do with slavery. It has everything to do with you Hollywood people and you derelict parents."

O'Donnell mocked O'Reilly, saying that "the struggles of black America have nothing to do with slavery in Bill O'Reilly's very narrow and uneducated mind." He then droned on about some paper Daniel Patrick Moynihan wrote about slavery.

Take that, Bill O'Reilly!

While I'm sure that was a fascinating little monograph Moynihan wrote about slavery, O'Donnell cited nothing in it that contradicted O'Reilly. Apparently, Moynihan found that American slavery was "the most awful the world has ever known." True, but unfortunately that has nothing to do with what O'Reilly said.

It doesn't even sound like Moynihan was attributing black illegitimacy to slavery. O'Donnell's point was simply that the great Moynihan had written about slavery being bad, so all discussion must end.

And it has nothing to do with slavery.

I beg to differ. It has everything to do with their voluntary enslavement to the Democrat Party in exchange for the gimmedat.

slave societies of the Caribbean and Brazil were dependent on constant imports just to maintain the numbers of slaves, but slaves in America grew every in numbers every bit as fast as their white overlords ...
True, but the main determinant of any non-indigenous population in tropical region of that times was probably yellow fever. Anyway, I don’t think it makes much sense to argue ‘who had it worse’ when they were slaves because at one time or another everybody was enslaved. It’s been a human institution since the dawn of history; until a bunch of white English Christians decided to get rid of it. Thank you British Empire.

Lawrence O’Commie will say anything to get conservatives to stop talking about Black unemployment. It is a result of liberal plantation ownership.

Pray for America to Wake Up

We keep rewarding black girls with more welfare money with more kids.

Perhaps if we didn’t give them a single penny more for #2—#3—#4- thru #25, they would get the message.
