"The left is basically saying, harmless, OK, which I don't agree with and I don't think you agree with. It's not a harmless substance, all right? And, you know, 'it's blacks', you know, 'you're trapping the blacks', because in certain ghetto neighborhoods it's part of the culture, 9 year old boys and girls are smoking it. And they don't like that. They don't want those kids to be targeted by the cops."Bill O'Reilly explaining "the blacks," ghettos, the drug war and what 'the left' thinks all at the same time? Be still, my heart.
Now, I haven't heard of a new influx of pot-smoking 9-year-olds into our federal penal system, but I admit Bill O'Reilly probably gets his news from different places than I do. But now I'm wondering just how much pot you'd find if you did a sweep in the Fox News studios. It's been clear for 10 years that they're smoking something—it's only a matter of time before these newfangled high-definition cameras pick up a thin, tell-tale wisp of smoke from behind the Fox & Friends couch.
