O really, O'Reilly?

Bill O'Reilly is a slow thinker. I mean the electrons move slowly, about 40 miles per hour versus the regular pace for electro-magnetic phenomena. I think that is why he says such odd things at times.
Bill O'Reilly has remained a controversial voice in the aftermath of a grand jury deciding not to indict Darren Wilson in the shooting death of Michael Brown, but on Monday the anchor went so far he even manged to alienate a fellow Fox News contributor.

Remarking on a group of St. Louis Rams players who adopted a 'hands up, don’t shoot' stance in a show of solidarity for Ferguson protesters prior to Sunday's game, O'Reilly said on The O'Reilly Factor; 'Quite frankly, I don’t think they’re smart enough to know what they’re doing.'

He then added again, 'I absolutely don’t think they’re smart enough to know what they’re doing.'

The militarized police forces - even more, our entirely weaponized society which took off into the far corners of extreme paranoia after 9/11 - has bothered me for a long time, and we hopefully are beginning to see the pendulum slowly begin a counter-movement.

I don't know exactly what Mr. O'Reilly meant when he said that the black players were not smart enough to know what they were doing. I really cannot guess. Since there is a possibility of racially charged interpretations, Mr. O'Reilly is finding it hard himself to determine exactly what he knew what he was doing.

Personally, I think the hands-up and don't-shoot symbol should become widely spread throughout the country until the people recover their rights from the law enforcement lobby and the Patriot Act is revoked.
