Some People Don't Deserve a Response

"I couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks..There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.' You know, I mean, everybody was -- it was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn't any kind of craziness at all." - Bill O'Reilly

You know, I really did not want to have to write this piece, I really wanted just to ignore it. For starters, I absolutely despise reacting to simple ass media pundits whose sole purpose is to be divisive. Bill O’Reilly is just that: a simple, racist, divisive asshole who gets off on trying to get our blood boiling. When I first heard his asinine and acidic comments on dining at Sylvia’s Restaurant in Harlem, it didn’t surprise me, it didn’t “shock” me, and it didn’t move me. O’Reilly is an idiot who has always said intolerant and ignorant things to piss people like me and you off. He wants us to respond angrily because it gives him attention and feeds the distorted images he wants to shape for his viewers. He wants a five second sound byte of someone telling him to kiss their ass, because he knows he can manipulate it later in the editing room. And my feeling is just ignore him and he’ll go away.

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.

I shouldn't be surprised either LTR, but I am. I am insulted and offended. I am angry that people like him are allowed such a platform and that people with progressive thoughts are dismissed as either anti-moral, anti-Christian, or anti-American. That is what truly upsets me. There is some columnist (or blogger) somewhere with something more pertinent and thought provoking than anything Bill O. has to say, and we can't hear him/her.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my web site to get additional info.
