WE JUST FALAFEL ABOUT THIS  2:41 pm November 21, 2012

Bill O’Reilly Is Very Peeved That People Found His Racist Rant Racist

by Doktor Zoom


So, Mr. O’Reilly here is really cheesed at You People for calling him a racist. All he did was point out that Barack Obama was reelected by a bunch of poor nonwhite people who want productive white Americans to give them All The Things, and then people started calling him bad names. Like “racist,” which is certainly a new one for Bill O’Reilly that he has never been called before! But look, children, Mitt Romney came out just a week after the election and said pretty much the same things himself, as Mr. O’Reilly points out. It’s just the truth! Nobody called Romney a racist (sure they did! Really! More than once!), but Romney also didn’t actually come out and say “White America is over, man.” He just implied it, like.

Let us parse Billo’s thinking here: 20% of people who voted make under $30,000, and a lot of them receive “entitlements.” 63% of them voted for Barry Bamz, which was his margin of victory! And so, people who like getting free stuff won that man the election. What’s racist about that?

We would just like to take a brief moment here to wave goodbye forever to the meaning of “entitlement” as it was traditionally understood in American Political Discourse. Back in the olden days (roughly the 1970s), it was a fairly neutral term that simply meant, as one commenter at Language Log put it,

a program with a fixed set of rules to qualify for benefits, so that actual expenditure depends on changes in the number of people who qualify (or in the cost of the benefit, where it is in kind rather than cash) as opposed to decisions made in the annual budget process.

Thanks to Fox News and Mitt Romney, “entitlement” now apparently means “Welfare for bad people who suck the life out of productive Americans.” Never mind that virtually all Americans receive gummint benefits, even as they think they don’t and complain about lazy welfare people. As Nicholas Kristoff put it so brilliantly a while back,

We manifestly do have a problem with people who see themselves as victims even as they benefit from loopholes in the tax code.

One is running for president.

Ahem. So anyway, the simple truth for Bill O’Reilly is that bad lazy people getting gummint benefits are hurting the good hardworking people who get gummint benefits but totally DESERVE them to the point that they are actually earning them. There is nothing wrong with noting that a whole bunch of these bad gummint beneficiaries are kind of brownish, because that’s simply a matter of demographic reality. And it’s “vile” and a “disgrace” to suggest that O’Reilly has a skewed worldview, as the Washington Post did… in a couple of sentences of an editorial that was mainly about Mitt Romney. Let’s keep in mind who the real victim is, here. It’s Billo. It’s always Billo.

In any case, it is very important to point out that only lazy people want free stuff. This is why no promise of FREE STUFF in big bright letters has ever moved a product or gotten someone onto a mailing list or bilked anyone out of their life savings.

Billo is right; it's not a traditional America anymore — you know, like the one where there were signs in the windows of businesses saying "No Dogs or Irish." THAT traditional America, Mr. O'Reilly, is indeed gone, and you ought to be pretty dang glad about that.

BadKitty904 November 21, 2012 at 3:06 pm

What's most laughable, to me, about all this Wingtard whining is that they pretty much just don't like being treated – ignored, marginalized, etc. – like a minority.

Weedlord BonerHitler November 21, 2012 at 3:56 pm

You know what they say. If you're white and rural, or a business, it's a subsidy.

If you're poor and/or black, it's a handout.

editor November 22, 2012 at 12:30 am

ho, what a nailbiter / buttclencher …

first 7 or so minutes: poors voted for obama, because they're poors, and he actually seemed to care about poors. no fair. because, really, what the american people genuinely care about is libya. instead, some voters seemed to vote for what affects them directly. this is most likely wrong. those who make less than 30,000 dollars per year (hello, fellow americans!) maybe ought not to have their votes counted. at least not as fully as the richer.

but then, at around 8 minutes (after some deranged ranting), some sense? yes, the white establishment no longer wins elections!

ooooh, lost it only a few seconds later! u.s. turning into europe! bad! vile!

As I mentioned in an earlier post, as an immigrant and a new citizen, I naturally voted for the free stuff. And I expected, you know, concrete material stuff. Goods and services, that is: food stamp cards that I could barter for cheap liquor, free cell phones, a colonoscopy paid for with rich people's hard earned dollars, etc.

But instead of that stuff I got a daily dose of massive schadenfreude as the right wingers of the country, one by one, take part in a massive whineathon that as a side benefit reveals their true colors with no PR spinning, tinting or gilding.

It turned out way better than I had dreamed, is what I'm saying.

Bit o' trivia from a proud old Massachusetts mick — there is no evidence that those "No Irish Need Apply" signs actually ever existed before the 20th century.

Now I realize who Romney was talking about when he described people who think of themselves as merely "victims."

How does it feel, O'Reilly?

JohnnyQuick November 21, 2012 at 3:18 pm

I always wonder what poopjellies like him and Trump think they would have to say to be "actually" racist. I would think it would be something about Jews, since that is the race they want to promise "free stuff" to (That free stuff? A home in a fine gated community in the Middle East where you've pissed off everyone around you into a murderous rage).

What part of the above does O'Reilly not consider "traditional"?

I make $19,000 a year and I don't get any entitlements like food stamps or housing subsidies. Am I doing something wrong?

Weedlord BonerHitler November 21, 2012 at 4:11 pm

Yes, according to Billious O'Reilly. You're not voting for Republicans who will cut your onerous tax burden from, oh, gee, let's see, what's the tax rate when you make the poverty level again?

sullivanst November 21, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Well, 4.2% personal FICA, 6.2% employer FICA contributions, 1.45% Medicare taxes and if you're single with no dependents and a standard deduction, an effective federal income tax rate of a little over 5%, for a total of roughly 17.5%, plus state income taxes.

I went ahead and assumed a lack of employer-sponsored healthcare and 401k

sullivanst November 21, 2012 at 6:31 pm

According to the wingnuts, you should quit your job and claim your $60k in benefits they're sure everyone gets.

Ask your wealthy parents for a "loan" or dip into that trust fund money. You do have daddie's lawyer on speed dial, right?

Shorter Billo: I cannot for the life of me understand why these n****rs keep caling me a racist!

Isyaignert November 21, 2012 at 3:29 pm

If anyone is getting "free stuff" it's the huge corporations. The penny I found in the parking lot while out buying my turkey is more than Boeing, Wells Fargo, GE, DuPont, Verizon, Honeywell, Mattell, et. al., paid in income taxes from 2008-2010 COMBINED.

NDeeeZ November 21, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Isn't that "feel loofah?"

StillGoinGreen November 21, 2012 at 3:31 pm

Olbermann was right.

Lionel[redacted]Esq November 21, 2012 at 3:33 pm

Hey, Bill O' is not racist. After all, he did say he didn't hear anyone saying they "want their motherfucking entitlements!"

barto November 21, 2012 at 3:47 pm

So if you get a tax break it's a God-given right, not an entitlement for Chirst's sake. Remember that, libtards.

MinAgain November 21, 2012 at 3:47 pm

I feel entitled to call Bill O'Reilly a jackass. Does that make me a non-traditional American?

Nostrildamus November 21, 2012 at 3:50 pm

Pretty lazy analysis, Bill. You just want a free pass.

mavenmaven November 21, 2012 at 3:54 pm

If only True White America had stuck with the 3/5th rule, extended it to Hispanics and excluded Catholics and Jews from full voting rights, well, True America would have been victorious.

BoroPrimorac November 21, 2012 at 4:03 pm

This fucker thinks Obama won it in the fourth quarter? Hahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Oh the sweet smell of Schadenfreude. Never change Bill; never change.

docterry6973 November 21, 2012 at 4:36 pm

I am sure that the GOP wants Fox to keep talking about the 'end of white America'. That will certainly help their chances in the future.

The 'funny' part about this is that the GOP wants their party to stop calling everyone else demeaning names. Calling other people names is what the GOP base likes to do best, and the GOP wants them to stop!

Bilbous actually having the gall to say about the Washington Post: "You disgrace the journalism industry" and having not the slightest bit of awareness.

rocktonsam November 21, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Pinhead says what?

gingerland62 November 21, 2012 at 6:12 pm

So if you voted for Romney do you not get the free stuff? That would be a huge plus for the deficit problem since the states that voted for Romney are the biggest "taker" states.

mosjef November 21, 2012 at 6:19 pm

Too bad Bill doesn't get free stuff. He has a gaping, cavernous place to put it.

littlebigdaddy November 21, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I'm still waiting for my Obamaphone.

JimmyPete November 21, 2012 at 10:32 pm

Bill don't go away mad, or better still go away mad , but please just go away.

I can't get over an Irish guy, and one who proudly associates with this ancestry, can say this and not get cognitive dissonance. You guys where once nearly Blah, yourself.

bearperney November 22, 2012 at 12:37 am

He's been like this ever since he discovered his wife was doing that cop.

Negropolis November 22, 2012 at 12:39 am

You want to know what else I don't get? This falsely held belief among a lot of conservatives that non-hispanic white people are a minority. They still compromise nearly 64% of the population, how is that them being "over"? And, if they ever allow light-skinned or white hispanics in, that number could actually go up. I know it works to their conspiracy theory-addled minds, but it ain't the truth.

It's still another 30 or 40 years before they very slightly become the minority, and even then it still assumes the stereotype that all racial and ethnic minorities are organized enough and in tune enough, together, to plot some kind of revenge, which is laughable.

No, what they really lament is that an conservative, white-and-male-dominated hegemony can't last forever, that the Southern Strategy looks to have ran its course as far as the presidency is concerned.

Walkinwiddaking November 22, 2012 at 7:44 pm

I'm Bill O'Reilly. I'm a racist, and I approve this message.

valmach November 23, 2012 at 12:28 am

Nope Romney is not a Racist – Just because he was taught for the 45 years of his life that the Blackman was the Devil himself – and that if anyone laid with The Black – they were going to a thousand Chinese Hells!… Nope.. don't believe it for a second..

JohnnyBrooklyn November 23, 2012 at 11:41 am

Um, isn't social security also an entitlement?

Things are pretty good. My sweetie is home now, and getting a little better every day. How are you? What are you cooking for Thanksgiving?(short circuits keyboard with drool)

Weedlord BonerHitler November 21, 2012 at 8:36 pm

So glad to hear that. Kiss the top of his head for me. Poor little guy, what a trauma. I'm exhausted and in pain after a brutal PT session (the sonofabitch sympathized with my pain and suffering and then said, "You know we're gonna do this again, right?" I coulda smacked him).

Cassoulet with white beans, garlic sausage, thyme, tomatoes, pancetta, and breadcrumbs for a crunchy topping. Super winter food. Wish you were here, I'd fix you up a bowl. But since you can't have me to cook for you, I hope you're feeding yourself well this holiday and staying warm and toasty. Love you!

starfanglednut November 21, 2012 at 9:47 pm

Rushes off to google “cassoulet ”
