tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOX News  October 18, 2010 7:00pm-8:00pm EST

8:00 pm
pinstripes 33 years ago today. and maybe a repeat tonight by someone, like beginning in 7 minutes? hope you have a great night. mr. bill o'reilly is next. i will see you back here tomorrow. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight: >> i said to bill o'reilly these were muslim terrorists and however you want to say it, he apologized. on this show we always speak about standing up to bigotry so i stood up. >> to me, you need to be distinct when you say things like this because this is a volatile time. >> bill: the ladies of "the view" continue the do dialogue about muslims killing us on 9/11. with the whole world watching, we will advance this troubling but important story. >> i was going to cuss him out. >> it is up to you to tell them we do not want what they are selling. we have been there before and we are not going back.
8:01 pm
>> president obama stepping it up on the campaign trail trying to keep his power base in congress. >> the empire is striking back. >> no! >> bill: brit hume will tell us if it is working. >> bill: snooky going to be the new secretary of interior. did you know that? >> bink go. will. >> bill: many viewers missed dennis miller because of the miners story. we will reprise miller tonight. >> bill: caution, you where to enter the no spin zone, the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the muslim dilemma, that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. in case you just got back from easter island, i, your humble correspondent, am causing trouble once again. today on "the view," the ladies addressed the shootout i had with them last thursday when i said that building a mosque near
8:02 pm
ground zero is inappropriate because muslims killed us there. that caused whoopi goldberg and joy behar to walk off the set. of course, what i said is absolutely true. but is insensitive to some. in a perfect world you always say muslim terrorists killed us but at this point i thought that was common knowledge. i guess i was wrong. anyway, the heated controversy continues and goes far beyond me and "the view" ladies. it has entered the fabric of america. barbara walters said something interesting today. she said that the nation is very angry, therefore, commentators must watch the rhetoric. okay. but my question to ms. walters is this. why is america so angry? there are a number of answers to that question. one of them is that folks are fed up with politically correct nonsense. there is no question there is a muslim problem in the world if theview ladies will not acknowledge that that's their problem.
8:03 pm
most americans well understand the danger coming out of the muslim world. ms. walters went on to say that my statement about the japanese attacking the u.s.a. in world war ii is not a valid comparison. >> i think that what bill o'reilly said was totally wrong. i also feel that on his program when he compared it to germany and japan, which he did, and said well, you wouldn't have been -- countries, they were not religion. >> bill: with all due respect to barbara walters who has handled herself with dignity in this controversy, she is misguided. american forces had to remove the taliban government in afghanistan because it supported the al qaeda killers. the u.s. and many other countries are now desperately trying to prevent iran from building a nuclear bomb because most everyone understands some crazy jihadists may use that bomb to ignite a holocaust. right now the countries of russia, china, the philippines, many nations in africa and thailand are all fighting muslim
8:04 pm
insurrections. the muslim threat to the world is not isolated. it's huge! it involves nations and millions of people. yet, the left in america will not face that fact. president obama has given a pass. because he needs to get nations like pakistan to cooperate with us. the president can't afford tough rhetoric like the kind i'm giving you tonight. that is perfectly understandable. in germany, however, chancellor angela merkel is getting tough. she said the attempts to build cultural have utterly failed. she has enormous problem 5 million muslims not asimulating into german society. in france the parliament there has outlawed burkas after that country endured writing in muslim areas that the police could not control. here in the u.s.a. we are lucky. the vast majority of american muslims are good citizens and deplore the extreme actions in the muslim world.
8:05 pm
but they know there is is a clash of civilizations in play. despite all that, ms. goldberg was deeply offended by my statement about 9/11 here is what she said this morning. >> when you say muslims are responsible for 9/11. does that mean mohammed ali? because mohammed al solid a muslim. does that mean kareem abdul jabbar? to me, you need to be distinct when you say things like this because this is a volatile time. you can't k. not just throw stuff around like that in my opinion. >> bill: that statement is worth addressing. no sane individual thinks mohammed ali or kareem abdul jabbar is responsible for 9/11. but the reality is that most americans are uneasy with the muslim world in general because moderate muslims have not stepped up in a visible way to help combat the jihadists. look at all the problems we're having with pakistan. we have sent that country billions of dollars hoping to
8:06 pm
motivate them to fight the taliban and al qaeda. if whoopi goldberg doesn't think there is a muslim problem, she ought to ask president obama about it. the cold truth is that in the world today jihad, aided and abetted by some muslim nations, is the biggest threat on the planet. if iran gets a nuclear weapon, israel and other countries are in grave danger. so i have had enough of the political correct nonsense and i condemn the far left fanatics who label people with whom they disagree bigots. that's what joy behar did again today, which is simply stunning because as laura ingraham pointed out last friday ms. behar's anti-christian analysis has been off the charts. and then there is roast o'donnell who used to host "the view." here is what she said. >> bill o'reilly, you know, what does he
8:07 pm
>> bill: now, ms. o'donnell's analysis reminded me of this. >> radical christianity is just as threatening as radical islam in a country like america where we have a separation of church and state. where we're a democracy. >> bill: interesting. nobody walked off the set of "the view" when rosie o'donnell said that. did they? talking points said on friday there is a reason behind the madness. many in the muslim world despise the united states because we are israel's biggest supporter. ' of the liberal precincts believe our support for israel is wrong and we have ignited muslim anger it is our fault that some muslims hate us. i don't think the ladies on "the
8:08 pm
view" see it that way. but certainly the far left has held that opinion for quite some time. finally, wherever i went this weekend, people were high fiving me. it was amazing. people yelling out windows o'reilly, keep going. that kind of stuff. are all these people bigots? do they all hate kareem abdul jabbar? that's just nuts. this has nothing to do with theology. and everything to do with politics. americans are simply fed one politicians and media people denying the obvious. there is a dangerous problem in the muslim world and once again i call for all peace-loving muslims to join the united states and other conscientious nations to fight the jihadists to defeat radical islam. that's the memo. in a moment, juan and mary katharine will tell me where i'm going wrong on all of this. later, how is the o'reillyview muslim controversy playing on talk radio? right back with those reports.

8:10 pm
8:11 pm
>> bill: continuing now with lead story danger from the muslim world joining us now mary katharine ham and juan williams. juan, i have got to tell everybody, own up to this, that talking points memo was really written by al lamb alan colmes. where am i going wrong, there juan. >> i hate to say this to you because i don't want to get your ego going. i think you are right. look, political correctness can lead to some kind of paralysis where you don't address reality. i mean, look, bill, i'm not a bigot. you know the kind of books i have written about the civil rights movement in this country. when i get on the plane, i have got to tell you if i see people who are in muslim garb and i think they are identifying themselves first and foremost as muslims i get worried. i get nervous. now, i remember also that when the times square bomber was at court i think this was just last week. he said the war with muslims, america's war is just beginning.
8:12 pm
first drop of blood. i don't think there is any way to get away from these facts. but i think there are people who want to somehow remind us all as president bush did after 9/11 it's not a war against islam. president bush went to a mosque -- >> bill: not involved in this at all from my perspective, juan. you live in the liberal precincts. you actually work for n.w.r. >> -- n.p.r. it's about politics as i said. my analysis is liberal thing and feel that the somehow guilty in the world of exploitation and backing the wrong side. and it makes it easier for them to come up with this kind of crazy stuff that, well, you can't really the muslims attacked us on 9/11. >> no, what barbara walters said to you. >> norwegians? come on. >> wait a minute. if you said timothy mcveigh the atlanta bomber, these people protesting against homosexuality at military funerals, very obnoxious you don't say first
8:13 pm
and foremost we have a problem with christians. that's crazy. >> bill: it's not at that level. it doesn't rise near to that level. >> and when you said in the talking points memo a moment ago that there are good muslims, i think that's a point, you know. >> bill: everybody knows that, juan. are we in 3rd grade here or what. >> but you have got to be careful. this is what barbara walters. >> bill: you just said it i have got to be careful. i have got to qualify everything 50 times. you know what, juan? i'm not doing it anymore. >> so be yourself. take responsibility. >> bill: i'm not going to say oh it's only a few. it's a tiny bit. it's not, juan. it's whole nations. iran, afghanistan, pakistan. whole nations. go ahead, mary katharine. you want to get in here. governmental first of all the left only think was you should be careful with rhetoric in dangerous times a right winger using the rhetoric. when it deals with other issues, they don't care. so there is a double standard there second of all, there is a distinction worth making between moderate and islam as you have
8:14 pm
made that point in the talking points because frankly, as a conservative, if anybody who believes in the mission in iraq where you are building up a society of moderate muslims to push back on extremists you have to believe in that distinction. so i think that is important to make. but, this whole getting up and running off set because you don't use the distinction in every single sentence you say, i think, was ridiculous and immature and they stopped the conversation, not you. it was them freaking out about a conservative position and leaving the stage to stop the conversation. >> bill: here is the deal. angela merkel, all right, in the politically correct nation of germany, germany has gone from being a military his stick society to a politically correct society in a generation. okay? angela merkel comes out today and says, you know what? this is out of control in our country. we can't control it anymore. so, if it's only a few, and a couple and just in the mountains of pakistan, that's all, why is angela merkel having such a hard time? why are the french banning burqas? come on.
8:15 pm
>> because they have a problem because people have stopped emphasizing and she went on to say, this integration assimilation. >> bill: why, juan? >> live side by side. that was wrong-headed because she sees it as a threat. i think she pointed out that two of every three or so children under the age of 5 in germany is muslim. >> bill: who is the problem in germany? is it the muslims who have come there or the germans? >> no, no, wait. see, you did it again. it's extremists. >> bill: it's not extremists. >> it's a german society. they are the ones causing that problem. >> bill: according to merkel, it's not extremists. it is most of the 5 million muslims who have come there aren't asimulating. that's the problem. >> also what happens, bill, bill, also what happens is that when moderate muslims want to assimilate or want to stand up, they run the risk of being blown up by their co-religionist who are extreme. that is a threat that moderate christians and jews don't. >> bill: that doesn't happen in america where most muslim
8:16 pm
americans have assimilated. >> because our society demands that people assimilate. that's what we demand and that's why it works here. >> bill, here is a caution point. the other day in new york, some guy cuts a muslim cabby's neck and says he is attacking him or you think about the protest at the mosque near ground zero. >> that guy works at a liberal. >> he was a crackpot. >> bill: look, americans are smart enough to know,juan. >> but i don't think -- the point is the rhetoric was not pushing him to do that. >> i don't know what is in that guy's head. we are saying we don't want in america people to have their rights violated to be attacked on the street because they heard from bill o'reilly and they act crazy. we have got to say to people as saying the other night that guy is a nut. >> he is a nut. i said that about the guy in florida -- who wanted to burn the koran. i came town on him like crazy. >> there you go. >> bill: if there was going to be a backlash against muslims it would happened after 9/11. it didn't happen in this country. we are smart enough to understand who the good muslims
8:17 pm
are and who the bad muslims are but to diminish the whole thing as the left wants to do, very dangerous. i have got to go, guys, as always. >> that would be hypocrisy. >> bill: thank you very much. directly ahead, president obama on the campaign trail. can he stop the bleeding in the democratic party? brit hume on that. moments away.
8:18 pm
desperate for nighttime heartburn relief? for many, nexium helps relieve heartburn symptoms caused by acid reflux disease. and for the majority of patients with prescription coverage for nexium, it can cost $30 or less per month. headache, diarrhea, and abdominal pain are possible side effects of nexium. other serious stomach conditions may still exist. ask your doctor if nexium can help relieve your heartburn symptoms. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
8:19 pm
8:20 pm
>> bill: in the hume zone segment tonight, president obama doing everything he can to stop the bleeding of the democratic party. taking to the road his energy level is back. >> the journey we started in 2008 was not about putting a president in the white house. it was never just about getting to election night. it was about every day after that. and building a movement for change that endures. >> i hope you don't mine, i'm losing my voice because i'm
8:21 pm
still fired up. [cheers] but i got some campaigning to do over the next couple weeks here. right now, the same special interests that would profit from the other side's agenda, they are fighting back. the empire is striking back. >> bill: joining us now from washington, fox news chief political analyst brit hume. before we get to that i would be interested to know what you think of this whole muslim controversy on the overall arch. because i do think that there is a big, big problem in the muslim world and, you know, i think it's diminished by the left. >> bill, i would simply say. this when you said and i heard -- i didn't see it live but i later saw the clip of the whole little episode there, when you said, you know, muslims attacked us on 9/11, that is unmistakably correct. i didn't take to you mean that all muslims attacked us on 9/11 or that all muslims were terrorists or anything of the
8:22 pm
kind. i saw that as a simple statement of fact and you used that to support the proposition that perhaps it was therefore inappropriate to build that mosque there i don't think that rises -- whoopi goldberg was saying today that she heard herself after you said that accuse you of bigotry and she knew then that she had to get up and leave the set which is unusually. usually people react to what other people say. reacted to what she said. be that as it may, i don't think most americans would look at and this think you were making a bigoted statement. factual statement. if you want to be sensitive to the feeling of every possible person in the world we would say muslim, at least muslim terrorists attacked us on 9/11. you are right, everybody knows that. >> bill: but the political battle over defining the problems in the world it always comes back to the left vs. the rest of us. now, as far as president obama is concerned, the was muffin poll today has his approval rating up pretty substantially from friday.
8:23 pm
50% disprove, 49% approve of the president. it looks to me like him getting out and giving the old rousing speeches that he gave in the campaign is helping him. >> i don't really think so, bill. i think this is mostly statistical variations in the polling. rasmussen, daily polls, if you look at it over a period of time, the relationship between people who are strongly favoring him and people who strongly do not is the same as it was a week ago and the same as it was a week before that so i don't attribute much of this to his being out on the stump. i don't think it's done him any harm. remember, this bill, is he out trying to make a sale to the public about his party in this election. he went out for the better part of a year trying to make a sale to the public on his health care plan. he gave dozens of speeches on the subject. ed in the end, he couldn't sell it is he a very inspiring speaker in many ways and inspirational figure in many ways, but he has proved not to be particularly persuasive in an argument. i don't think is he going to be persuasive this time around.
8:24 pm
i just don't see any evidence of it. >> bill: all he has to do though, according to the polls, the republican side is much more motivated to vote than the democratic side. so, all the president has to do is motivate some democrats who are kind of, i may or may not go out to go out. that's why i think he is doing that he just. >> i think that's true, bill. >> bill: stoke up the base, try to get as many democrats out as he can that's what the polls say the republican are going to go out and the democrats are going to stay home. >> brit: no doubt that's true. the problem is for him that there aren't as many self-identified democrats now as there were a couple of years ago. the numbers of people who have gone into the independent ranks has grown and the number of people who have grown into the republican ranks has grown. so he is speaking nowadays to a shrunken base. now, obviously if they all turned out, 100%. he would be able to save a bunch of seats. but that would be quite remarkable in a midterm election in which his party and his causes are demoralized. >> bill: but the democratic ground machine in states like
8:25 pm
nevada, washington state, california u is substantial. >> brit: it is. >> bill: that's what he needs to get reid reeffect elected, bar are a boxer reelected, patty murray reelected. is he targeting those places. ohio is a lost cause. i think ohio is going to go republican big time because the president's approval rating in that state is 3%. now, here is my question. will the president's approval rating in the state, the individual state correspond to what happens in the senatorial and gubernatorial races? >> brit: there is a lot of history of that and i think that will probably be the case. remember this about the turnout efforts that you mentioned, speaking of, say, labor unions that do a good job of turning out voters, the problem is those labor people can't guarantee how those people are going to vote. back in the reagan years they would turn out voters and a lot of them would vote for reagan. i think this is a year in which so people are so disappointed
8:26 pm
and disillusioned among a lot of labor union members, you turn them all out to the polls and not all of them are going to go your way. so, turn out efforts don't always work the way you hope. >> bill: looks like karl rove was right, that there are certain tea party-backed candidates like karl pal deep know in new york and perhaps christine o'donnell although that race has tightened a little bit, according to the latest poll out there, that simply aren't ready for prime time and that the democrats will take those seats, even though voter anger in those states is high. >> it's awfully hard to imagine how carl paladino, having made the number of gaffes that he has made would possibly be elected to be dogcatcher. he has been a very unfortunate candidate. christine o'donnell has done a little better. she has a tremendous hill to climb in delaware. it would be -- listen, if we are sitting here on election night, bill, we see that she has won, look out. we are talking beyond avalanche. we are talking massacre. >> bill: was muffin, 11 down
8:27 pm
now. she has made up ground. halloween is coming. >> there you go. >> bill: we can mobilize the -- >> the wicken vote? >> bill: you said it, not me humo. i led you right into that trap. i'm not saying anything like that. >> yes, you did. i asked it as a question. >> bill: because of the miner coverage last week, many viewers did not get to see dennis miller. we will rectify that situation. and then, how is the muslims killed us on 9/11 deal being happened on talk radio? we'll find out about that and we hope you stay tuned to those reports. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ [ male announcer ] every day thousands of people are switching from tylenol® to advil.

valley where the mine caves in and they get you out and you go home and you get blasted for a couple days before you start worrying about how bummed out you are that you have been saved. it just seems like we over think these things. i notice when the elevator got up to the top. i don't know if you saw it there was a guy there working triage who would not open the damn door. people stuck in this cigar tube. he is like counseling them you might have -- you can open the door? you might be -- open the door.

8:40 pm
making it perfectly watchable. people were thrilled. they were thrilled. it clearly was -- it seemed like a stunt to people. but they loved how you handled it. it clearly addressed the issue of political correctness, which is ridiculous. as you have mentioned, throughout the show, perfectly well, kind of a ridiculous complaint. i think there -- it's kind of like a car wreck that show. it's like you slow down to watch it and you were like the ambulance that came and people kind of had a sigh of relief that somebody is going throb to save them. they went on with it again today. they know even you, the ghost of you, gives them bigger ratings. everyone was amused. >> bill: that show is fairly successful on its own. >> bill: what about you, mr. lavigne, from the liberal precincts? >> my liberal listeners were thrilled as well for exactly opposite reasons. they thought joy and whoopi were absolutely right to walk out. they felt the walk out forced your apology and glad to hear your apology. >> bill: did they understand my apology was not about what i said. it was about if, look, if somebody took it the wrong way,
8:41 pm
i certainly was not my intention. but i will stand by what i said all day long. muslims killed us on 9/11 and there is a huge muslim problem in the world. do your listeners refute there is a huge muslim problem in the world? >> bill, there are all kinds of huge problems in the world. we understand there is a huge intramuslim battle. the worst thing possible is to throw all of them together. and, let's face it on the air christians committed the holocaust. >> bill: would they have said the same thing then about the japanese? look, tojo and those guys they hijacked that government and they basically did what they wanted. but, most of the japanese people didn't want that. i mean. >> that's true of iran today. i think you will find the most pro american people in the middle east are the iranian people even though they are led by a bunch of dangerous whack jobs that might blow up israel. >> bill: that aren't true there

are enough irans that support the crazy mullahs for them to maintain power. >> the vast majority don't, bill. you know that. >> bill: no, no. >> they protest in the streets. >> bill: at the shaw they -- shah. they would be overthrown. liberal mind set you give example after example after example and it's still only a few people. tammy used to be a liberal. do you understand the mind set? >> well, it's this -- the first element is that america is always wrong and that's, of course, incorrect, of course, but the second dynamic is this is where the failure is, is that by us not addressing it specifically as a muslim problem, it kind of takes the emphasis off of the issue needing to be dealt with within the muslim community, which is why this thing continues on. but the liberal mind set is this refusal to acknowledge that something might not be our fault and that there something -- look, we can't solve this issue. muslims have to solve the issue and the only way to do that is to make sure that everybody knows really who is at issue
8:43 pm
here. and it certainly isn't us. >> bill: is there an israel component in this, mr. lavigne? >> no. >> bill: yes, no? >> no. there is a liberal on the panel here, i would like to give the liberal mind set. we want to stop terrorists from killing us. we know that an overreaction to hate all muslims caused more muslims to hate us. >> bill: who hates all muslims? does that? >> set number of terrorists out there. >> bill: who hates all muslims. >> we condemn all muslims, we are going to get more terrorists out there. >> bill: that's a nice speech. >> it's true. >> bill: i don't know anybody outside of that nut in florida who we just hammered on this program who wanted to burn the koran. who hates all muslims? who? do i hate all muslims? that's insane. >> i don't think you hate all muslims, bill. but, look, what you said is true and they only in a technical sense, right? i wouldn't say christians bomb abortion clinics even though the people who bomb abortion clinics profess christianity and do it in christianity because it's --
8:44 pm
>> bill: would you say if a nation harbored abortion bombers, an entire nation harbored them, that you would be accurate to say that? afghanistan, under the taliban, a theocracy, harbored al qaeda. an entire nation run by muslims. >> run by muslim dictators called the taliban. >> bill: yeah. >> if you want to attack the taliban or afghanistan or al qaeda, i'm fine with it if you want to attack the nazis, i'm fine with it. we didn't say -- we talked about this months ago, mr. o'reilly. we day didn't say the germans, we said the nazis. >> bill: no. we said the germans and there were terrible slang words for germans. >> there were. that was wrong, too. you shouldn't tar all germans for the nazis. >> bill: nobody is doing that. go ahead, tammy. >> we have had -- we have tried the liberal way for two years. just today there is a recognition that we are at a terror threat now that is similar to pre-9/11.
8:45 pm
so bowing to muslim nations and saying it's all that fault. >> who is bowing. >> that guy called barack obama. >> tammy, george w. bush respected the difference. >> excuse me. the terror threat has gone up and europe knows it and we know it that's what it has gotten us. >> even george bush recognized that distinction between muslims and terrorists. >> bill: there is a huge gulf. i think this debate shows it between the liberal mind set on this threat and the conservative or traditional mind set. thanks very much. reality check on deck tonight starring mrs. cleaver. manage began mccain and christine o'donnell. right back with check. here, kitty. here, kitty. oh! just come snuggle with mama.
