DEFENDING O'REILLY: If Bill's A Rascist, So Was Lincoln

Sometimes you have to just have to say, "enough."
 
And that time has come with the media mistreatment of Bill O'Reilly
attempting to paint Bill as anti-Latino, anti-minority, anti-color,
anti-Semite, anti-anything-that-doesn't-look-like-Bill, scare/hatemonger.

Nothing could be further than the truth. Oh, sure, if you took Bill's
actual words and sentences and replayed them completely in context, you
might be able to make it sound like the no-spinster was a racist. But you
could take almost anything any racist said and make it sound as if they
were prone to, um...racism.
 
But if you look closer, beneath the bias of the elite-liberal mainstream
media, you can see how something that might sound like racism to one
person can sound like just simple intolerance to another.
 
Like when Bill says that the immigration bill is supported by "...people
who hate America, and they hate it because it's run primarily by white,
Christian men."  Damn you, President Bush and your hate-Americanism!
 
While a person already predisposed to believe anything Bill says is an
attempt to dehumanize minorities, a more even-handed person would
understand that it's not beyond comprehension that there are plenty of
"white-Christian men" who hate America because it is run by white,
Christian men. It could happen.  And if you're also willing to dehumanize
majorities like white, Christian men, how can you be a minority basher?

But let's say for the moment that white, Christian men are okay with
white, Christian men running the country. That would mean that Bill
thinks only non-Christian, non-whites are the America-haters. And if you
hate people just because they're white and Christian, who then is being
the racist.  Minorities, that's who.  That's all Bill is saying.
 
Bill tells us that there are people who "under the guise of being
compassionate, want to flood the country with foreign nationals,
unlimited, unlimited, to change the complexion -- pardon the pun -- of
America. Now, that's hatred, too."  Hatred of decent puns.  And, as Bill
puts it, it will "wipe-out the two party system," i.e. the end of the
Republican party, the party that begot Abraham Lincoln.  The same Abraham
Lincoln who just happened to free the slaves...many of whom were
minorities.
 
So you see, in reality, this isn't so much about hatred Bill O'Reilly has
for immigrants and minorities.  This is about the hatred minorities have
for minorities.  And if these minorities hate themselves so much why are
we condemning Bill for joining minorities in their hatred.
 
That, ladies and gentlemen, isn't racism.  That's brotherhood.
