Fox News host Bill O’Reilly said there is a deeper, darker reason behind cries to scrap the Electoral College, and it has to so with race in America.
And he immediately began trending as a “racist” on Twitter.
Clinton’s popular vote win was due entirely to the turnout in large, Democratically-controlled metropolitan areas such as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. Trump, on the other hand, won America’s heartland.
“Even though Secretary Clinton won the popular vote by 2.8 million, the progressive state of California provided all of that margin,” O’Reilly said in his “Talking Points Memo” Tuesday.
He observed that “if the Electoral College were abolished, presidential candidates could simply campaign in the nation’s largest states and cities.”
This is exactly what the left wants because the minority vote in these areas is predominately Democratic.
In such a scenario, “you don’t really have a national election, do you?” he said. “You have targeted populations.”
And for this reason, Democrats believe white, working-class voters — those that Trump easily won over — should be marginalized. It’s another “white privilege” argument.
“Talking points believes this is all about race,” he said. “The left sees ‘white privilege’ in America as an oppressive force.”
O’Reilly took his argument even further.
“The heart of liberalism in America today is based on race,” he said, “white men have set up a system of oppression.”
The left wants to fundamentally change how things are run in America — “Taking voting power away from the white precincts is the quickest way to do that,” O’Reilly concluded.
I like that Bill O'Reilly trends because he slipped and gave his actual opinion.

While the left may have taken issue with O’Reilly’s analysis, conservatives thought he was on the mark.

@oreillyfactor Good luck getting 2/3 of the states to vote to abolish what protects 48 of them from the other 2 states. pic.twitter.com/akRQBp7KAF
