The latest right-wing tactic to promote fear and hysteria is to take every case of an illegal immigrant involved in a crime and make it seem like Donald Trump’s dream that all undocumented people are criminals. They seem almost gleeful that a beautiful young woman was murdered in San Francisco because her alleged killer was a Mexican man with a history of violence.
It’s the lobster eating surfer syndrome. Find an example of something horrific and turn it into an epidemic that the ignorant can use to further their hatred for anybody who doesn’t look like they do.
Bill O’Reilly sent one of his reporters to the town offices in San Francisco to harass employees about their status as a “sanctuary” for illegal immigrants. O’Reilly is furious that this woman was murdered and is determined to see all 11 million undocumented immigrants in America charged with her death.
Harassing town officials who have nothing to do with it may have seemed like a good idea, but it didn’t quite work out. This reporter got shut down in the most truthful and hilarious way possible.
Watch this Fox News actor get brushed off by a San Fran official because he’s “not a real reporter” since “Fox isn’t real news.”
