O'Reilly vs. the city of Amsterdam

Recently the Dutch Prince Willem-Alexander and Princess Maxima visited New York City and state in commemoration of the 400th anniversary of Henry Hudson's voyage up the Hudson River. Articles of this event appeared in many newspapers and The Dallas Morning News.

This happens around the time The Netherlands (and their Dutch city of Amsterdam) are rather upset over Bill O'Reilly. Mr. O'Reilly to illustrate the excess of liberalism pointed to the liberal sex and drug laws/policies of Amsterdam, claiming it caused a cultural rot and increase crime in that jewel of a European city.

The people of Amsterdam and The Netherlands took offense to this reference. Below are video references provided by Dutch YouTuber:

Mr. O'Reilly did not have to offend our friends in The Netherlands to locate a city with high crime and a cultural rot due to the excess of liberalism. All he had to do was look in his own country, the United States of America. Specifically, the city of New Orleans, Louisiana.

Pre-Katrina (Hurricane Katrina 2005), New Orleans had the highest unsolved murder rate in the United States (USA). Today New Orleans enjoys the highest crime rate of any American city. Thank you liberals for this city and it's distinction.

To the people of The Netherlands please accept an apology for Mr. O'Reilly's reference to Amsterdam. Also a heart-full apology for the Dutch Royals having to be greeted by United States Secretary of State, that bellowing Hillary Rodham Clinton. Can you ever forgive the USA for that?
