While Bill O'Reilly claims that his show is the "no spin" zone, he did a lot of gyrating on Tuesday night in trying to claim that his recent comments, about the demise of "traditional" America, were being misrepresented by the press. In addition to demonstrating how he can twist and turn, he also provided us with yet another example of his classic narcissism with his pompous assertion that his now famous election night analysis of the reason for Obama's win - free stuff for minorities - was "100% correct." But Bill is no stranger to denial given that he still doesn't think he had anything to do with creating a climate of hate in which an abortion doctor was killed. I don't know about the rest of Bill's male anatomy (ewww) but I do know that he has some mighty big cojones.
For years, Bill O'Reilly has been speaking about how the "far left" want to destroy "traditional" America. His election night commentary about how whites are now a minority (they're not) in a changing America wasn't the first time that he has linked the demise of traditional America with the arrival of dark people. In 2007 he said this to John McCain: "But do you understand what the New York Times wants, and the far-left want? They want to break down the white, Christian, male power structure, which you're a part, and so am I, and they want to bring in millions of foreign nationals to basically break down the structure that we have. In that regard, Pat Buchanan is right. So I say you've got to cap with a number."
Obviously, Bill sees the new demographics as a problem. As such, his concern about a changing America has been described in words relating to a sense of disappointment and sadness. But according to Bill, this isn't true because he's only reporting the facts. He said, in his Talking Points, that journalists, who described him as "lamenting" the vote, were full of shit. He even accused a Los Angeles Times reporter of being "incompetent" for her point that he seemed "terrified" by the election results. He attacked a Variety writer as a "left wing loon" fo for saying that Bill is "lamenting the shift the US electorate. (So much for O'Reilly's claim that he doesn't do personal attacks.)
Bill's amazement that he was being called a "white power guy" was ironic in light of his having been praised on the white power site, Stormfront. Considering his unsubstantiated and relentless attacks on Dr. George Tiller (among many other targets) and never having apologized for the campaign of hate, Bill's comment about the Obama campaign having no shame was also ironic. But the high point of irony came at the end of Bill's screed when he said that "there are entire media operations that exist solely to promote ideology; obviously a bad situation that is getting worse."
Existing solely to promote ideology? Look in the mirror, Bill!
