Oh God…

Bill O and Monica Crowley just finished hollering about reverse racism because Barack Obama is encouraging African-American supporters to talk to people at their churches, and if Rick Santorum was to encourage white people to vote and talk to church members, then he’d supposedly be called a bigoted racist for encouraging white people to vote.

Alan Colmes just about shit a brick but pointed out that “there’s no association for the advancement of white people” because white people are the empowered political group. We went downhill from there.

O’Reilly: “Oh, so then you have more leeway, then, to appeal to a minority group to help you than the majority? Is that written down anywhere?” 

Colmes: “No, that’s accepted.”

Crowley: “So since it’s a double standard but it’s accepted, it’s okay?”

O’Reilly: “As far as politically correct acceptibility in this country, if you’re a minority group you can rally around anybody, but if you’re a white guy, you can’t. And that’s basically true.”

Crowley: “It’s this huge double standard, and a huge hypocrisy, but this is the way it is, and unless we call them out on it, they’ll continue to get away with it.”

Poor Alan Colmes. You can’t convince a couple of bigots that reverse racism doesn’t exist. You just can’t.

But God love you for trying, Alan.

    Yes, but if he keeps banging his head against that brick wall, he might end up with brain damage.

    Sometimes I think that people who want to argue progressive ideas should never go on Fox. The way they get interviewed...
