Bill O'Reilly Got Into A Heated Argument With Former KKK Leader David Duke

On Monday night's episode of "The O'Reilly Factor," Bill O'Reilly got into a heated discussion with former Ku Klux Klan leader and Republican Louisiana State Representative David Duke about whether or not Duke was a white supremacist.

Duke's appearance on the show was prompted by the recent revelation that House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) gave a speech at a 2002 conference hosted by the European-American Unity and Rights Organization, a white nationalist group founded by Duke.

“Don’t sit there and tell me you’re not a white –– your organization isn’t looking out for the white European race,” O'Reilly said to Duke, who describes himself as a "racial realist."

“I”m looking out for the rights of all Americans, I also believe that European Americans shouldn't be discriminated against in jobs or scholarships or any other way... there’s nothing wrong with that," Duke said.

But O'Reilly wasn't having it.

“Don’t sit there and tell me you’re not trying to promote the cause of white people, because you are,” he shortly shot back.
