Judge Elihue Smails is back! No, he’s not on the “Flying WASP” waxing poetic about “having the stock market beat”.
He WILL think he’s doing you a favor by offering for you to mow his lawn and MAYBE buying you a Fresca while he, the Paragon of virtue, civil rights and giving every American a fair shot at their dream has “educated you” about “how it is”.
Let’s revel in his illumination so here it is and bask in all that is Bill O’Reilly:
“So the anti-American folks are using the acquittal of George Zimmerman to vent their hatred,”
If that weren’t enough uplifting material there was this pearl of wisdom as well:
“Now the second group of Americans emotionally invested in the demise of George Zimmerman are those who believe their country is flat out racist,” O’Reilly continued. “That blacks and other minorities don’t get fair play from the justice system, the economic system, or the social system.”
For people like Bill O’Reilly who “miss the good old days” when black folks said “yes Boss”, mothers stayed at home and didn’t work, gays stayed in the closet and to be a white man was the ultimate in power even if you were just a regular Joe your life was much easier than any other racial or ethnic group in the country and women.
He longs for the days when the white man ruled all, gave what they deemed others deserved and if you didn’t like it, what were you going to do about it?
I will admit that I am a white male, I’m as pale as they get – my Irish skin glows in some lights but yet I recognize the idiocy in Bill O’s call for going back to what he fondly refers to as “The good old days” which is the exact same thing all those old fucks who showed up at McCain & Romney rallies during campaigns against the president meant when they screamed repeatedly: “I want my country back!”.
They can say they’re not racist, they might even throw in an “I have a black friend” or “lots of black friends” too but what they fail to understand is the mindset you have is what makes you a racist!
When you long for days when minorities didn’t have the rights we do today, I won’t say “when we weren’t equal” because truth be told we STILL aren’t equal but people like O’Reilly will say : “We gave you (Insert right and or “privilege” here) what more do you want? It’s NEVER enough for you people!
No Bill, it isn’t “enough”! Not when we have a justice system that allows a murderer like George Zimmerman go free to killing an unarmed black teenager just because he thought the kid “looked suspicious”.
It’s not enough when we have a black woman sentenced to 20 years in prison for firing warning shots at an attacker, citing the very law that allowed Zimmerman to walk free and yet SHE is sentenced to 20 years in prison!
Like it or not Mr. Falafel this country is NOT equal, racism DOES exist and is alive & well, though it may not be as strong as it once was it’s still “alive & still kick’n’” minorities in the face on a daily basis.
Guys like O’Reilly think you give someone a little something and they should be happy just like he feels about his tax bill every year, give as little as possible and you should be happy he even gave you anything at all.
It’s called entitlement, he feels entitled to everything he wants and minorities, women and the poor are entitled to what he says you are entitled to and you should be happy he even gave you that!
We laugh at guys like Bill O the Clown but the fact remains that there is a significant population in this country that thinks like he does, just look at the Fox News viewership numbers, it’s staggering, and it’s a safe bet to say that most if not all those viewers think exactly like he does!
We MUST stay vigilant!
We MUST get out there and protest, be heard, support progressive causes and candidates as much as we can and even more so!
If we don’t then the Bill O’s of the world will win and maybe they will take us back to the “good old days” while they tell you what to fear and who’s to blame for that fear.
I don’t want that, you as a reader of Lefty Liberal don’t want that either!
In closing I offer this to the Chief racism denier at Fox:
Open your eyes! Take off the black & white “Leave it to Beaver” & “Ozzie & Harriet glasses” of the 50’s, step into this century and know that things are not NEARLY as equal as you’d like to think and guys like me, we’re going to be fighting you EVERY day until you relent or finally awaken from your Rumplestilskin like racism denying hibernation!
