Bill O’Reilly really let his racist flag fly tonight in ways not seen since his infamous visit to Sylvia’s restaurant in Harlem several years ago. In a discussion with Dennis Miller about why Obama has lost so much popularity since he took office, O’Reilly suggested that it’s because of “a grievance" that Obama shares with other African Americans "against whites who aren’t sympathetic to their cause.”
At about 2:30, Dennis Miller began to wonder how Obama lost so much popularity and then offered his own answer. “I don’t sense he likes half the country.”
O'Reilly didn't mention Mitt Romney’s “47%” remark. Instead, he responded by asking,
Do you think it has anything to do with grievance? Because in some African American communities there is a grievance against whites who aren’t sympathetic to their cause. And that may be driving a little bit of it. So there are some African Americans who believe that the reason they’re not prospering as a community, alright, is because society hasn’t done enough, and the reason that society hasn’t done enough is because of rich white guys.
To his credit, Miller said he didn’t “think of it like that with Obama.” He called Obama “one of those intelligentsia swells who looks down on people that he thinks aren’t up to speed intellectually with him. So I don’t get a color thing off him.”
But, although he may not have meant the question that way, clearly Bill O’Reilly thinks Obama has a grievance or he wouldn’t have speculated that it could be a reason for his loss of popularity.
Also, why is it that, on race issues, BOR always prefers to frame it as it being African-Americans who resent Whites? Does he really not know that there are plenty of Whites who resent A-As? Whenever the subject of racism towards A-As comes up, he always tries to downplay it as being an issue for only a very, very small percentage of the population. If BOR got out and spent some real time with more folks in the country, he’d realize that there’s a whole lot more White folks than he realizes who have grievances against those with darker skin for a whole host of reasons. It’s NOT just a matter of A-As resenting Whites. Hell, a trip over to foxnation alone would show him that.
And, from what I heard teased during F&F’s commercials this morning, it looks like BOR may continue on with the race-based stuff on tonight’s show too. As heard in a “Factor” promo: “Dump the Dems! Why this Pastor claims that they’re bad for Black voters. This is a must see O’Reilly Factor tonight”
Btw, I could be wrong, but the Pastor shown in the “Factor” tease appears to be Bishop E.W. Jackson, a Pastor with GOP ties and president of the conservative group, S.T.A.N.D.
I really think that Fox and O’Reilly are now realizing that they have lost yet another election, and will soon be even less relevant than they currently are.
Stop Lying about him and maybe he’ll return the respect you so obviously feel you’re owed. Wait a minute…..it sounds like you may be the one suffering from grievance issues!
Sure, BillO — he has a grudge against . . . half of himself . . .
At about 2:30, Dennis Miller began to wonder how Obama lost so much popularity . . .
I wonder how, too — especially since his job approval is at 51% . . .
O’Reilly knows this- that’s why he always finishes up with that “Screw you all!” smirk. He knows that this is the peak of what he’ll get, and it’s not for lack of trying on the part of the people trying to rein him in.
LOL!! Poor Miller would project that, being the Man of Juxtaposed Sophomoric Inanities.
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against Cayholics
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against Wall Street
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against Fux Nuze
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against climate change deniers
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against hate mongers
O’Reilly thinks some people have a grievence against God
… and so on …
Note to Killer O’Reilly
Understand now Billdo? You are simply paranoid about a large number of people you image to be against all the things you hold as sacred, yet secretly you know are built on a false vcalue-system of beaten into you.
The extreme right laughs at this clown. They don’t take Billy seriously. They prefer Handout Hannocchio over Billy. And according to Hannocchio’s bio on Fox “News” website, he is more influential in politics than Billy. A brutal smackdown against Billy.
It’s known that these two do not get along. Hannocchio’s desire is to be the number one talk show on Fox “News.” He’s after Billy’s spot and he will get it one day, pushing Billy into the number 2 or three spot on Fox “News.” And there’s nothing Billy can do about it.
Billy should not be focusing on President Obama, instead, he should be watching his so-called colleagues.
NOTE TO BILLY
Your tenure as top cable news show is about to end, if Hannity has his way. But you know how he is anyway.
