Bill O'Reilly: The Left Wants to Take Power Away From 'White Establishment'

Fox News host Bill O'Reilly said liberals are against the Electoral College because they want the "white establishment" to lose power.

In his "Talking Points" segment Tuesday night on "The O'Reilly Factor," he said that without the Electoral College, the only votes that count would be those in large states.

"If the Electoral College were abolished, presidential candidates could simply campaign in the nation's largest states and cities — New York, LA, Chicago, Houston — and rack up enough votes to pretty much win any election.

"That's what the left wants," he continued. "That's what they want, because in the large urban areas and blue states like New York and California, minorities are substantial."

"Look at the landscape — Philadelphia, Dallas/Fort Worth, Miami — in all of these places, the minority vote usually goes heavily to the Democrats. Add to that New York City, LA, Chicago, San Francisco, you don't really have a national election anymore, do you? You have targeted populations."

O'Reilly said racism is behind the call to remove the Electoral College.

"Neutralizing the largely white rural areas in the Midwest and South will assure liberal politicians get power and keep it. 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 center the voting power in the cities?" he asked.

Racism against whites is a central tenet of liberal views, O'Reilly continued and "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 and that system must be destroyed. Bernie Sanders peddled that. To some extent, Hillary Clinton did, and the liberal media tries to sell that all day long.

"To some so-called white privilege bad, 'diversity' good," he added. 

The Democratic Party relies on minority votes, he continued, and "if you look at the voting patterns, it is clear that the Democrats are also heavily reliant on the woman vote.

"White men have largely abandoned the Democrats and the left believes this is because of racism; that they want to punish minorities and keep them down."

Removing voting power from majority-white areas is the main reason for liberal calls to end the electoral system, O'Reilly said.

"So that's what's really going on when you hear about the Electoral College and how unfair it allegedly is. Summing up, the left wants power taken away from the white establishment and they want a profound change in the way America is run.

"Taking voting power away from white precincts is the quickest way to do that."
