O’Reilly and the other Fox “News” bigots are not that bright and tend to self-destruct anyway. Whether it be O’Reilly and his sexual harassment scandal, or Limbaugh and his prescription drug scandal; these impotent clowns are always one step away from burying themselves. They take after their leaders, you know the ones that try to fondle strange men in bathroom stalls, or preach hatred of homosexuals while screwing gay prostitutes in the dark. Think about it – the leader (Ted Haggert) of the far right crazy Evangelicals. the greatest voting bloc of the Republican party, gets caught scoring crystal meth from a gay prostitute.
Their presidential front-runner, Rudy Giuliani, was one of the most hard line, racist mayors in the history of New York City. Giuliani showed unwavering support for a corrupt police department that was responsible for some of the greatest atrocities in recent U.S. history. Under his reign, Amadou Diallo, an African immigrant on his way home from work was shot 19 times as he entered his apartment vestibule by four white police officers. Diallo’s crime? Turning around to show the plainclothes pigs that he had a wallet. The atmosphere was so out of control that white cops actually thought they could get away with the torture and rape (by plunger) of Abner Louima, a Haitian immigrant. According to a New York Times/CBS poll by April of 2000, Guiliani’s approval rating among Blacks was 7 percent.
But this is who they are: self-loathing, hateful hypocrites. The very same Guiliani who now takes a tough public stance against a woman’s right to choose and against gays and lesbians used to live with two gay men when he was mayor and was notably pro-choice. This strong “family values” guy dropped out of his Senate race against Hillary Clinton, when his out-of-marriage affair became public.
So no - I’m not surprised when Bill O’Reilly is shocked to find out that Black people eat with forks and knives at Sylvia’s in Harlem, or that racist DA Reed Walters says that it was Jesus, and not the Black demonstrators, that kept the demonstrations peaceful in Jena last week. And yes – I acknowledge and agree that it is sad and pathetic that so many mindless Americans think like this – but surprised? No, not really.
