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.
