Last night, Bill O’Reilly argued with Tavis Smiley that the police killings of African Americans such as Eric Garner and Michael Brown are “minuscule,” have nothing to do with race and should not be considered as a pattern. But saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas?” Why, that requires action!
In the same show that he debated Smiley, O’Reilly devoted the most time in his email segment to the War On Christmas. The second mail he read said:
I’ve been an atheist forever and have no problem saying Merry Christmas as a greeting. It is an expression of good will.
“Exactly,” O’Reilly said.
Then he showed just what kind of good will the Christmas season brings out in him. The next email, from a woman named Angie, said that the Minneapolis Holiday Market sells mugs with the words “Christmas Market” covered up with a sticker. O’Reilly let forth:
You know what, Angie, if I see that anywhere, I’m gone. So the Minneapolis Holiday Market? I’m not going. Not going!
That one time – if I see that at a department store, somebody taking tape and crossing out Christmas or anything like that, if it’s, you know, done by the employees? Out. Gone. Never again.
Next up was an email suggesting that the only important takeaway from Ferguson is that Michael Brown should have behaved better:
It is my belief that after a million words on Ferguson, four words are most important: Comply with police orders.
So… police getting away with killing unarmed African Americans? Not a real deal. Saying “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas?” That can’t be tolerated!
