After O’Reilly’s Rants About How ‘Muslims Killed Us On 9/11!’ Goldberg And Behar Storm Off Set

This morning, Fox News host Bill O’Reilly appeared on The View and chatted with the hosts about a variety of the day’s issues. At one point, the discussion turned to the topic of Park 51, the Islamic community center that is being planned to be built two blocks from ground zero in New York City.

O’Reilly proclaimed his strong opposition to building the community center, and the hosts began to press him on his position. Goldberg asked him why he and other Park 51 opponents are so against building the institution. O’Reilly responded by saying it was “inappropriate.” Goldberg then asked the Fox News host why he thought it was inappropriate, and he responded, “Muslims killed us on 9/11!” Goldberg responded by saying, “Oh my God!” and then used expletives censored by the station. O’Reilly continued to repeat his phrase, and co-host Joy Behar proclaimed, “I don’t want to sit here,” and got up and left. She was soon joined by Goldberg, who walked off the stage as the crowd cheered:

O’REILLY: Muslims killed us on 9/11!

GOLDBERG: Oh my God! That is so (expletive)

O’REILLY: Muslims didn’t kill us on 9/11? (crosstalk)

GOLDBERG: What religion was Mr. McVeigh?

O’REILLY: Muslims killed us on 9/11!

BEHAR: I don’t want to sit here.

Watch it:

O’Reilly has previously said that Park 51 shouldn’t be built because there are already “more than 100 mosques in New York City.” One has to wonder how far away they have to be from Ground Zero for him to not wrongly place responsibility on them for the acts of a handful of extremists.
