On the April 11 edition of his nationally syndicated radio show, Bill O'Reilly again attacked Virginia Beach Mayor Meyera Oberndorf, claiming that "she has no clue at all" and stating: "[T]he honest reporting is that Mayor Oberndorf has no clue, none, shouldn't be there and neither should the police chief. And that's the truth. And if you don't get them out of there, you're gonna have more dead girls in the street." O'Reilly made the comment while discussing a March 30 automobile crash that resulted in the deaths of two teenage girls, reportedly at the hands of an illegal immigrant who said he had been drinking the night of the accident.

As Media Matters for America documented, O'Reilly previously attacked Oberndorf and Virginia Beach Police Chief Alfred M. Jacocks Jr. on the April 6 edition of his radio program, describing Oberndorf as "limited in her intellectual capacity" and calling Jacocks "an arrogant incompetent."

Additionally, during a discussion about Don Imus' reference to the Rutgers University women's basketball team as "nappy-headed hos," a caller to the program claimed "the word 'racist' " is "the single most effective weapon ever devised by the far left and anti-Americans," adding: "[I]t's more effective than nuclear arsenals." The caller then claimed that "[t]he Muslim jihadists use it against us" and "the Mexican invasion is enabled by it." O'Reilly responded affirmatively: "I understand what you're saying ... and it's absolutely true." He concluded: "You know, I'm throwing down the gauntlet on these people. And anybody that uses this weapon, you're gonna get a visit from me."

From the April 11 edition of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly:

O'REILLY: No, she has no clue at all. And I understand that small town -- and, you know -- actually, Virginia Beach is the biggest town in Virginia, I've been told, about 400,000. But it's still relatively a small place. But I understand that, you know, the local guys have to do this, that, and the other thing for the sponsors and the money. It's all about that, which is why I have to step in, [caller], and I have to do the honest reporting. And the honest reporting is that Mayor Oberndorf has no clue, none, shouldn't be there and neither should the police chief. And that's the truth. And if you don't get them out of there, you're gonna have more dead girls in the street.

[...]

CALLER: You know, about this word "racist." It's the single most effective weapon ever devised by the far left and anti-Americans. It immediately -- it's more effective than nuclear arsenals. It immediately puts us on the defensive, no matter what the subject. The Muslim jihadists use it against us, the Mexican invasion is enabled by it. Even our gangs. We can shut down the gangs with the National Guard and a big police presence.

O'REILLY: Oh, you could easily shut the gangs down. You're absolutely right. But, you know, but the ACLU [American Civil Liberties Union] would be right on your butt saying, "Oh, you're racist. You're profiling. You're doing this, that, and the other thing." I understand what you're saying, [caller], and it's absolutely true. But enough's enough. You know, I'm throwing down the gauntlet on these people. And anybody that uses this weapon, you're gonna get a visit from me.
