Bill O'Reilly carried on the Fox News tradition of race-baiting on Martin Luther King Day tonight with a twofer that included President Obama. In a discussion about today's inaugural address, O'Reilly told guest Bob Woodward that the reason Obama doesn't like Republicans is because they are the "purveyors of white privilege" and he "doesn't like the white privilege thing."
It's pretty clear that he doesn't like them because he doesn't feel - he feels that they are the purveyors of white privilege, Bob. And, you know, he's never going to say that, but that's the theme that runs through his advisors: The white privilege has to be broken down.
...Think about what I just said. The Republican agenda in his mind, the president's mind, props up white privilege. Therefore as the social justice champion, he has to tear that down. He doesn't like the white privilege thing and he doesn't like the Republicans trying to defend it. And that's the seed.
O'Reilly tried to change the subject and move on at that point but Woodward, obviously taken aback, interrupted to disagree, saying, "It's a broader disagreement with the Republican agenda."
Being, myself, “white and born into a working-poor class family” (with dirt-farmer and female added in), it is my own experience (unlike yours) that the privilege of being white is alive and well, but also that it is waning (good riddance, too".
Proof of that is precisely what Bill O’Reilly and other foxies are wont to complain about without realising that they’re actually corroborating the persistance of that belief and practice (if same can be done without being subjected to ridicule).
It’s that we have to agree or disagree with it, as thought it’s a fact. Even though you called it an opinion presenting your case.
You know why I’m offended by his choice of wording, Kim? Because he basically said a fancy version of “Obama don’t like us because he don’t know his place,” using a klansman/skinhead term (white privilege) while discussing the inauguration of a black president that happened to fall on Martin Luther King Day.
And this isn’t O’Reilly’s first offense with using wording that amounts to such points, or including supremacist terms in it. Remember when he repeatedly called Obama a threat and used terms like “the order” and “white, male power structure” in his arguments?
O’Reilly knows what he’s doing, and so does anyone who pays attention. The end.
Oh, and BTW- “My daddy was a judge” don’t mean squat. I grew up with the police, and their definition of a judge was the dumbest or most corrupt lawyer in the room. Sometimes both.
“Likewise, if in criticizing President Obama. There are fanatical left wingers who say, ‘Those who disagree with President Obama are doing so because he’s black.’ It’s a racial deal. That kind of tactic should be condemned by all Americans.”
So BOR believes that using such tactics are “disgraceful” and should be condemned yet here he is using the same race-based tactics to say that Obama disagrees with the GOP because of racial issues?! WTF? Once again it looks like BOR’s own rules regarding conduct/tactics only apply to those on the left but not to himself as he clearly operates with a double standard. Do as I say and not as I do, eh, BOR? BOR = huge hypocrite.
Despite all BOR’s blustering over the years that he is not a racist/race baiter, more and more it looks like he’s coming out as being in the same camp as Bek and so many others on the right – that BOR too thinks Obama hates white people/white culture and is a racist. Last night’s comments, his past remarks asking if Colin Powell endorsed Obama because of race, his bemoaning that white, Christian males are losing power and his quips about how if Obama wins and whites become a minority, we can kiss “traditional America” goodbye are an eye-opening look into BOR’s own bigoted/racist mindset.
To BOR and his cohorts on the right – please keep it up! You are preaching to an ever-shrinking choir and, if your intent is to make yourselves and the GOP even more irrelevant, then you’re on the right track. Obama isn’t destroying the GOP – take a look in the mirror and you’ll see who is really destroying the GOP.
And here’s some golden oldies from BOR that some may never heard about before…
The GOP are PROTECTORS of White Privilege.
While on the topic, sort of, the #4 all-time favourite post on my blog is about the racism I witnessed while growing up in Detroit.

With all my love,
If you guys need a good laugh, check out the comments over at Fox Nation. They’re having a meltdown. I am so loving this!
People post their Own Opinions (sometimes with factual support). See, if you say a poster is supporting a blanket view, well you’re saying that each & every poster is a mass-movement for such & such a view point. Think about it.
It’s obvious Pres. Mitt understands the special needs & perks that are rightly the domain & entitlement of all who are White & Uber-Rich! To the 47%ers I say Fuck You! To the rest of you I say – SUCKERS!
Countdown to the boycott begins now. Place your bets on how close he comes to Beck’s record.
The transformation of Billdo into his protege the sht flinging Baboon Glenn Beck continues.
Yes, Billdo. President Obama won’t rest until white folk are forced to pay reparations. I suggest you leave the good ol’ USA while you still have a chance, Billdo.
