Fox News host Bill O’Reilly argued Tuesday night that the Left’s desire to eliminate the Electoral College is based on an agenda dedicated to taking power away from white voters.
In his opening comments on “The O’Reilly Factor,” the political commentator stated his belief that liberals want the Electoral College gone in favor of a system that would favor diverse cities over white rural areas.
“They know that neutralizing the largely white rural areas in the Midwest and the South will assure liberal politicians get power — and keep it,” O’Reilly said. “This is all about race. The Left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with.”
“Therefore, white working-class voters must be marginalized, and what better way to do that than to center the voting power in the cities,” he continued.
O’Reilly then declared the modern-day Left’s primary motivation is race.
“Very few commentators will tell you that the heart of liberalism in America today is based on race. It permeates almost every issue. That white men have set up a system of oppression. That system must be destroyed,” he said.
The Fox News host argued that liberal politicians and the left-leaning media do everything in their power to drive home racial messages like “white privilege — bad. Diversity — good” on a daily basis, while the Democratic party has become “heavily reliant on the minority vote.”
“White men have largely abandoned the Democrats, and the left believes it’s because of racism that they want to punish minorities, keep them down,” O’Reilly said of what has resulted from this agenda.
He concluded, “The Left wants power taken away from the white establishment. They want a profound change in the way America is run. Taking voting power away from the white precincts is the quickest way to do that.”
On Monday, the Electoral College — in spite of a massive pressure campaign from liberals — officially made Donald Trump president-elect of the United States.
