Fox News personality Bill O’Reilly is under fire for embracing white nationalism, after he accused leftists of seeking to take power away from the "white establishment." O’Reilly made the remarks on Tuesday’s broadcast of "The O’Reilly Factor."

Bill O’Reilly: "The left sees white privilege in America as an oppressive force that must be done away with. … Summing up: 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."

In July, O’Reilly sparked outrage when he said the enslaved Africans who built the White House were "well fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government."
