Bill O’reily’s denial of Racism in America is half Baked.

Bill O’Reilly Is constantly trying to Deny that racism doesn’t exist in America because we have a black president. Recently on a Fox news segment, in the wake of the Charleston shooting, Mister O’Reilly Attempts to Explain to Guest, Kirsten Powers why There is no longer Racism in this country. When ms, powers stated that she did think racism existed in this country, and didn’t Know why he was denying it , O’Reilly said “Because I don’t think there is an epidemic of racism, I don’t think it’s ingrained in society and every country has racist elements in it. ”  O’Reilly contradicted himself in the same sentence. Bill, So what is it, is there no racism in America or is there racist elements in “every” country? It can’t be both.

His other Guest, Monica Crowley, backs O’Reilly up by stating that Institutionalized racism does not exist in this Country. You could have fooled me. I have seen it countless times when one black guy walking down the street is pulled over by the cops. in a matter of seconds, 4 other cops show up. Every time I was stopped, only one police car ever showed up. This is an example of both institutionalized racism and white privilege, 2 things O’Reilly says doesn’t exist. Pretty funny coming From one of the most privileged whites around.

Monica Crowley goes on to say “You have people on the far left who believe that this is a nation that was founded on genocide, theft, and slavery.” Believe? I’m pretty sure that Killing of the native Americans to steal their land, constitutes genocide and theft. Was there also no Slavery? This Kind of denial is not productive. It is this very culture of denial-ism that allowed these horrible atrocities to happen in the first place. When people deny that something is happening, they do nothing to change it.

Crowley goes on to claim that the left is trying to bring down America. How is admitting our faults and working to change those faults take down America? If anything it would make the rest of the world have more respect for us, and would set an example for the rest of the world to follow. O’Reilly, after making the ridiculous statement that liberals are trying to destroy America, Kirsten powers said that she didn’t understand what they were talking about. He then said that she wasn’t paying attention to what was happening. Pretty ironic coming from someone who is denying America’s racism problem shortly after a racially motivated shooting. Of course O’Reilly is on a tv station that is full of racially insensitive rhetoric.

Bill comes up with this list of how we are overcoming the history of slavery and racism. One of the Items is “entitlements.”First of All I hate when they call them entitlements. They aren’t entitlements they are benefits that help those in need. Secondly what does a welfare system set up in the 1930s, which had mostly white people in mid, at a time when Blacks were second class citizens have anything to do with making up for Slavery, segregation and racism. Unfortunately Bill O’Reilly seldom makes any sense, nor do many other Fox News hosts.

O’Reilly makes a statement that racists are a lunatic fringe. Powers then says “It’s not a fringe, a lot of people are racist in this country. Then O’Reilly throws out the old straw man argument Fox News is famous for and claims Kirsten powers said most of Americans are racist. Twisting people’s words to discredit them doesn’t work, it only discredit you and makes you look stupid. then he goes back to the ridiculous statement of how all other countries have racism, once again discrediting his claim that racism doesn’t exist in America.

Monica Crowley then puts her 2 cents in saying, “When you hear people running down America as a racist country, or we’re Sexist, or Homophobic or whatever their argument dijor is,  these are sweeping indictments of America, Comes from an Ideology of the far left.’ Instead of being in denial that there is racism , sexism, and homophobia in America, so we can claim that America is the greatest country on Earth, we should Acknowledge it, change it and make America the country we claim it is.

Michael Eden claims that God Hates Arabs and that the Bible says so.

12 04 2011

During My time here on Word press I have come across a lot of hate spouting moronic blogs, but one really takes the cake.
The blog in question is “Start thinking Right ” by Michael Eden. The name of this Blog is deceptive, for if one begins to read his articles they realize that his thinking is wrong and Backwards. Indeed an educated person would come to the conclusion that Michael might not Even think at all.

"I am Michael Eden, and god says that he hates Arabs! Yee-Haww!!!"

   I started a discussion with Michael, criticizing him on his unflinching(and often mindless ) support of the Israeli occupation of Palestine, and his blatant hatred for Muslims and the entire Arab race. predictive in regards to my criticism of the Occupation he accuses me of hating Jews (wich is not true at all). Then he tries to justify the Occupation of Palestine By quoting the bible, wich is a common tactic of Christian-Zionists(and is usually their only “evidence.”) Then he even claims that god Hates Arabs and says that the Bible says so.
He then goes on to quote some verse in the Bible about Jacob and Esau. Esau has Nothing to do with Arabs. I believe he was Thinking about Issac and Ismael, even then the Bible never says anything about god Hating Arabs.So much for Mr. Eden’s knowledge of the Bible. What kind of Christian uses the name of god to Justify his hatred, and then doesn’t have the biblical knowledge to even back up his claim.
Michael, hate has nothing to do with god.You are not fooling anyone by dressing up your hatred in Christian clothes. Nice try, maybe you should try a different scam. here is a memorable quote from Michael which displays his level of inteligence.”a liberal can have six advanced degrees and recite a plethora of academic papers, and be totally discombobulated by smart uneducated people armed with nothing more than an actual understanding of history.” Yes Michael, smart Uneducated people, that is the dumbest thing I have ever heard, well, next to the thing about God hating Arabs. It’s funny how Michael, in trying to claim he is smart, tells people that he is uneducated. Yes, because people really have confidence that uneducated people Know history. Wouldn’t knowing history require one to be educated, even self-educated? Mikey, you have definitely earned that dunce cap.

The Imbecile’s Guide to Discrediting Intelligent Rebuttals to your blog

10 04 2011

 

1) Point out all of the comment’s grammar, spelling and punctuation mistakes to help discredit the commentors intelligence.

2) Find any means by which to avoid discussing any of the content in the comment that may disprove your article’s relevance.

3) If the commenter asks any questions that you don’t have the answer to, tell them that the article already answered those questions; even if it doesn’t(especially if it doesn’t)

4) Accuse the commenter of being a Socialist,  Communist,  Hippy, liberal, or Anarchist.(as all of these words are interchangeable)

5) If said commenter has the nasty habit of stating facts,demand that they give you proof. If the have the audacity to actually give you proof, find ways to discredit the intelligence of their sources.

6) If none of the above tactics work, resort to vicious name calling.

7) if that still doesn’t work, delete the comment, and ban anymore comments from this person.
