Bill O'Reilly's Attempt At Slamming The Far Left's 'Radical Belief' About U.S. History Was Accidentally Full Of Facts

Republican political commentator and former Fox News host Bill O'Reilly hasn't been making as much news since being forced out from his home network.

That didn't stop a recent tweet of his about reparations for slavery—which were recently explored by a House Judiciary subcommittee—from backfiring in the best way.

O'Reilly called the idea that the founders of the United States were racist and designed a system that primarily benefitted white men a "radical belief," despite many of the founding fathers owning slaves and only allowing white men to vote.

O'Reilly also implied that a lack of personal responsibility, rather than institutional injustice, is to blame for the narrative that 400 years of slavery in America still affects lives and livelihoods today.

People were quick to point out that these "radical beliefs" are actually objective facts.

They brought receipts too.

Where's the lie?

Facts are facts, Bill, not radical beliefs.
