Bill O’Reilly’s FORKED TONGUE: Enslaved Africans Who Built White House Were “Well Fed” – Just One More O’Reilly LIE! Amy Goodman: In a letter from November 28, 1800, first lady Abigail Adams described enslaved Africans forced to labor on the White House’s construction as being “half fed, and destitute of clothing”. Tabacco: America, you have a choice here! You can either believe Bill O’Reilly OR you can believe 1800’s First Lady, Abigail Adams, and present day Amy Goodman. That really isn’t much of a choice, is it!

Fox News’s Bill O’Reilly has doubled down on his comments that enslaved Africans who built the White House were “well-fed.” He made the comments on Tuesday, in response to first lady Michelle Obama’s speech at the DNC Monday night.

 

Michelle Obama: “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves, and I watch my daughters, two beautiful, intelligent, black young women, playing with their dogs on the White House lawn.”

 

That was Michelle Obama speaking Monday night at the DNC. This was Bill O’Reilly’s response.

 

Bill O’Reilly: “Slaves that worked there were well fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government, which stopped hiring slave labor in 1802. However, the feds did not forbid subcontractors from using slave labor. So Michelle Obama is essentially correct in citing slaves as builders of the White House, but there were others working, as well.”

 

Bill O’Reilly’s comments sparked widespread outrage and were seen as a defense of slavery. But on Wednesday, O’Reilly claimed the statements were “just a fact”. Actually, primary sources contradict his claims. In a letter from November 28, 1800, first lady Abigail Adams described enslaved Africans forced to labor on the White House’s construction as being “half fed, and destitute of clothing”.

Tabacco: I consider myself both a funnel and a filter. I funnel information, not readily available on the Mass Media, which is ignored and/or suppressed. I filter out the irrelevancies and trivialities to save both the time and effort of my Readers and bring consternation to the enemies of Truth & Fairness! When you read Tabacco, if you don’t learn something NEW, I’ve wasted your time.

 

 

If Tabacco is talking about a subject that nobody else is discussing, it means that subject is more, not less important, and the Powers-That-Be are deliberately avoiding that Issue. To presume otherwise completely defeats my purpose in blogging.

    READERS!

    Can you believe the Pomposity of Bill O’Reilly & other Republicans, who have the temerity to even suggest that being ‘well fed’ could possibly compensate African Slaves for their TORTURE even though they were NOT ‘well fed’!

    Yet, Republicans have the gall to refer to themselves as “THE PARTY OF LINCOLN”!

    Donald Trump is the appropriate ‘Figurehead’ for these 21st century Monsters!
