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

24 06 2015

By Christopher Jay Thompson


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.

Occupy Wall Street and the Media Smear Campaign

2 11 2011

Anyone who has watched the news in the past month has heard of Occupy Wall Street, the protest movement that is rocking the nation. The movement has given the working class one voice, united against corporate greed and it’s influence on government policy. The Movement has become big enough to garner media attention. The media coverage of Occupy Wall Street has not all been positive, and in the beginning of the protests was non-existent. Many media outlets have launched an all out smear campaign. The smear campaign is mostly from, but not limited to more conservative media. Of course this should be of no surprise, since most media outlets are major corporations. In the beginning the media tried to make it look like the protestors were uneducated hippies.

Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress is a Display of Zionist Treachery

29 05 2011

by  Christopher Jay Thompson

Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to congress was a glorious display of total disregard for the rights of the Palestinian people. This man is  an arrogant dictator that the world has not seen the likes of  since Adolf Hitler. If you Notice, Netanyahu doesn’t have the Russian accent that is prevalent amongst the majority of Israelis, that’s because he lived a majority of his childhood in the United States. Even though his speech was full of lies and utter fabrications, I got to admit, he is a very good speech maker. Well let us delve into the speech.

Netanyahu began his speech by stating “I do see a lot of old friends here and  I see a lot of new friends of Israel here as well. Republicans and Democrats alike.” and continued by saying “Israel has no better  friend   than America, and America has no better friend than Israel”. What He means is Israel has no other friend but America. Neither Netanyahu, or any other Israeli politician can go anywhere in Europe, Including England, for fear of being arrested for war crimes. As far as the second part goes, Israel is not Americas best friend, We were attacked on 911 because  of our support of Israel. We are fighting terrorists because of Israel. Billions of dollars of taxpayers’ money is sent to Israel every year in the form of weapons, ammunition  and cash  To Israel to help them oppress the Palestinian people.

Obama Middle East Speech Proves That He has No Intention to Change Foreign Policy

22 05 2011

By Christopher Thompson

I know that I am a little late on Obama’s recent Middle East speech, that’s because I just watched it. There is a lot of buzz around this speech particularly from the religious right about the part of the

speech involving the Israel-palestine conflict. I heard al these right wingers talk about how Obama is Betraying Israel. How do they figure? What I got from the speech is that Obama is screwing Palestine just as much as every politician before him.

First of all, I don’t believe we should be supporting Israel period, just like we shouldn’t have helped create the Zionist state at the end of WWII. Sure Obama talks of a Palestinian state, but not one that has a chance of surviving. I love how our politicians always demands that Palestine acknowledge Israel’s right to exists, yet nobody says that Israel should acknowledge Palestine’s right to exist.

Obama says “Our friendship with Israel is rooted deep in shared History and values.” What, Like the fact that both nations were founded by white Europeans, who went to a land that wasn’t theirs, to kill the indigenous people to steal their land? He also goes on to say that we won’t stand for Israel to be singled out By the International community. Kind of like how The US singles out Iran, while Our Allies like Israel and Saudi Arabia get a license to kill? Even Iran doesn’t go into international waters and attack ships with Humanitarian aid, in violation of Geneva convention rules.

He goes on to state “Every state has the right to self-defense, and Israel must be allowed to defend themselves. ” Yet, his plan calls for a demilitarized Palestine.
Wait, a minute, didn’t he say every state has the right to defend themselves? Yet he calls for a Palestine that is not even allowed the means to defend its self . Israel’s history of “defending” itself is to attack other countries and settle its land, and if those countries truly defend themselves they are called terrorists. Israel doesn’t only occupy Palestinian land, they also occupy land that once belonged to Lebanon , Syria and Jordan. Wow, self-defence really seems to work to Israel’s advantage. every time Israel “defends” themselves, they acquire more land. So, basically when Obama says that every state has the right to self-defense, every one translates to Israel, and self-defense translates to Imperialist expansion.
There you have it folks, Obama has not done a damn thing to change our flawed foreign policy.





Stupid FDA, Stupid Big Dairy farms picking on the Amish

17 05 2011

By Christopher Jay Thompson

I’m madder than a mad cow. I’m mad mad mad mad mad. Oh yeah, did I mention that I am mad? The FDA, an agency that we all Know is bribed by the Big industrial farms, has  had an Amish farmer arrested  for selling  raw milk  across state lines. Since when has unpasteurized milk become an Illegal substance? No one got sick from the milk. Now  all things natural have become off-limits.

This is another attempt by the FDA, and corporate farms to  keep small farms from making a living. If it wasn’t for the Corporate farms lobbying(bribing) politicians, this would not be a legal issue. The government want complete control of the food supply so they can have complete control of us.It’s funny how Big farms can use growth hormones and steroids and all kinds of unhealthy stuff on their cows to help them profit more, but it is Illegal for a farmer to sell natural milk. We are losing our freedom.
