W. Kamau Bell on Thursday night attacked Fox News host Bill O’Reilly for sending a clueless correspondent to a “Muslim convention.” The correspondent accosted convention-goers, asking them whether they could name a “Christian terrorist.”
Bell noted that the Muslims in the video were understandingly flustered, because they didn’t go to a “Muslim convention” to talk to him, but “to get away from Fox News.”
He then went on to list the many examples of Christian terrorism that have helped define the United States, most notably the cross-burning and lynching of the KKK.
