Usually, when Bill O'Reilly visits "The View", the conversation tends to get heated up but this time his controversial statements were just too much for co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to stomach. Everything started with a conversation about how O`Reilly believes that "Americans are losing faith in President Obama". The final straw for Goldberg and Behar was regarding 9/11 and why the mosque was inappropiate, to which he responded: ""Because Muslims killed us on 9/11." Goldberg response had to be bleeped out and both co-hosts left the interview looking very upset by that statement.
I have to say that, even though this is a sensitive issue, O'Reilly was way out of line. In this day and age, you simply cannot paint everybody with the same brush, and to classify all Muslims into a single, homogenous group is both absurd and dangerous. Statements like that only lead to hate and war instead of tolerance, and you have to be careful with what you say on TV because your words have actual impact on people. This goes way beyond Republicans or Democrats... it's just plain common sense!
Watch how it all happened in the clip above and express yourselves in the comments!
