Bill O’Reilly Attacks Trayvon’s Mother Over Al Sharpton


Bill O’Reilly Attacks Trayvon’s Mother Over Al Sharpton

Bill O’Reilly from Fox News had the chance to interview Sybrina Fulton, the mother of Trayvon Martin this week.  Thursday on “The O’Reilly Factor,” Fulton faced off with the conservative talk show host to talk about the case against George Zimmerman, the man who killed her son.

During the interview, O’Reilly questioned Martin’s mother about the public “rush to judgement” against Zimmerman.  While expressing sympathy for her loss, he also questioned the involvement of various civil rights leaders, including Rev. Al Sharpton.

“I can’t imagine the pain you go through,” O’Reilly said. “So I think all Americans are feeling your pain. And we all want justice in the case…From the beginning, we’ve just called for calm. Let the system work. Let’s not convict Zimmerman on television. Let’s not make these wild charges.”

O’Reilly and other conservatives have called for Sharpton and others to apologize for their involvement in the case.

“Was I wrong to say that?” O’Reilly asked Fulton.

Fulton defended Sharpton, stating that he also wants peace.

“We’ve never asked for anyone to do anything out of the ordinary,” she said.

O’Reilly continued to go after Fulton, stating again that he would like for Sharpton to apologize.

“You want me to comment on that? I don’t know everything that’s behind it. I haven’t been watching a lot of the news. And I haven’t been watching what everyone was saying. So I’m not sure what response you want,” Fulton said.

O’Reilly then accused Fulton of working with civil rights leaders to “convict Zimmerman on TV.”

“We’re all Americans here. No one wants a 17-year-old son shot down on the street … Mr. Zimmerman doesn’t want to see his son’s life ruined because of this. This is a tragedy all the way around. And we have to handle it with the utmost respect,” O’Reilly said.

    “…we have to handle it with the utmost respect,” O’Reilly said. What kind of respect is it to ostracize this woman on national on behalf of a murderer who just killed her child? Why in the world did Ms. Fulton appear on this bigot’s show is far beyond me. If this jerk wants Sharpton to apologize for anything why doesn’t he invite Sharpton on his show instead of this woman who has no experience in dealing with a racist bigot Conservative talk show host, but I guarantee Rev. Sharpton does.

      She appeared because she has expenses. She did’t fall into O’Reilly’s trap. It’s not about racism or racial tension. IT IS ABOUT GUNS. Follow the money

    I truly believe that Ms. Fulton needs to stop doing these tv show now. She does not know how to handle these guys and this lawyer of hers doesn’t stop this kind of questioning. I believe Trayvons parents need to get different attorneys that are going to protect them better than these guys are doing, I have said that for about a month now. Spencer I agree Sharpton does know how to deal will O’Rielly, but O’Rielly would never have him on there.

    There is pay involved in doing these interviews, correct? I can only think they keep doing these to recoup money to pay the attorneys. I agree w/others that the unfortunate end result may be turning the initial victory of the arrest into a defeat in the long run. Stay very low key until the trial (if there is one) is over.

    Exactly WHEN did O’Reilly accuse Fulton of anything? He mentioned Sharpton, turned to Fulton, allowed her to speak, and then said “That’s fair enough”. That’s an accusation?

    BTW: for the author’s charge of O’Reilly’s lack of fairness, he was very respectful throughout, called Fulton “magnificent”, and was PRAISED for his fairness by Crump at the end — the end of this tape with Crump’s praise for O’Reilly was cut off. Why?

    Crump is shameful at this point. In my opinion he is comprising his client and kowtowing to racist O’Reilly for what at this point? What did they expect to accomplish with this interview, other than to get paid?? O’Reilly opened it up with his disingenuous sympathy for Trayvon’s mom and finishes saying “Zimmerman doesn’t want to see HIS son’s life ruined because of this”?, and you got Crump nodding his head almost in agreement, then he thanks the racist for being on his show, REALLY CRUMP AND SYBRINA? If they really thought O’Reilly’s show was of value to them, why didn’t they appear on it in the very beginning while they were seeking Zimmerman’s arrest?

    Why are Blacks so afraid to call out and stand up against racist like O’Reilly? O’Reilly displayed the typical white racist tactic of Throwin the Rock Then Hidin The Hand That Threw It with his continual comments of Black Leaders needing to apologize for seeking Justice, but no accountability of Zimmerman for murdering this child…He continually did this while Crumps there. Crump thinks if he and Sybrina shows a sympathetic face while stating this isn’t about race it will get them brownie points among those who hate them for being Black. Obvious they both have learned nothing from Sybrina’s previous Gaffe, and need to Stop before any more damage is done!

      She did the interview for money, after all the woman has expenses and she has been off work for more then a month.
      I just she could have gotten paid with cash upfront, got her own talking points and clowned the clown Bill O’Reilly.

        I agree with you on your later point. But if she is gonna do shows like racist O’ Reilly’s then she needs training on how to response and call him/them out on their racism.

        I don’t agree with you that it’s not about racism, because clearly Zimmerman saw this Black male, running after him muttering they always get away, and Fuc_n Coons (911 SP tapes, not NBC’s), not cold, etc. , then chased this Black face down knowing he had the upper hand with his gun cocked he should have never been able to possess in the first place. It is about racism that includes guns, the privilege of whites especially white Judges and their families not forced to play by the same rules of Justice/fairness, and a racist corrupt Legal System who is more racist and unfair against Blacks compared to all other races combined.

        I have no problem with her making her money from her tragedy, but this issues is much bigger than her’s and if she and her attorney Crump cannot stand up to these hate mongers, which clearly they both have shown they cannot, then she and Crump should cease doing these type of interviews doing more damage than good.

    I feel the interview went well. Miss. Fulton handled herself with dignity and respect. Orielly tried to get her to say Al sharpton should apologise for his participation in helping bring Zimmerman to justic. She did not bite. I applaude the both of them. Orielly did not get eithr of them to diss sharpton.

    This womanmay not be as sophisticated as some in the media, but I though she handled O’Rielly very well. She did not the after Bill tried to sneak it in a seconed time. Remember everyone, God will not be mocked by the wicked. She is a dove amongst those that would do evil towards her and her son’s legacy. You wait and see. That is a praying woman, I would’nt mess with her.
