Saddest thing is, I used to think O'Reilly was the craziest of the crazies on that network, and now, in comparison to some of those other shows on Fox, he almost seems downright level-headed.

(Don't misinterpret this to mean I think he's not off his rocker, he just is level-headed in comparison to some of his Fox contemporaries.)

I didn't think anyone won the argument. And I don't like Bill O'Reilly one bit.

I like how dumb ass Bill tried to spin it and bring up the Black Panther Party. Like they are on national television putting up pictures of white congressmen and women with hoods and burning crosses in the background.

No one won anything. If anyone came out on top it was O'Reilly. When the Dr made the there are former Republicans that were former KKK members, O'Reilly brought up Byrd. So the Dr lost that point. And the Dr lost again about handful of racist signs at the tea party on 2 counts. 1) some of the ones the DR mentioned were comparisons to hitler, and not racist. Over they top bat chit crazy sure, but no more so that the 100s of identical comparisons to Bush so he lost a point. Then O'reilly mentioned that there are a few examples of anti-white action on the part of the Black Panthers and the DR refused to accept that. Must most of it was the DR making unsupported blanket claims of racism with no real evidence and O'Reilly says it was not true. Mostly it sounded like all those shows sound..."well you're a what not!" "oh no i am not!" "Oh yes you are!"

So were did O'reilly lose? Not saying he won anything but there was NO slam.

The GOP and Fox don't see racism-- unless of course a white person is supposedly on the receiving end of it.

Fact of the matter, racism exists in this country. You don't have to be at a tea party to see someone carrying signs to figure that out, and it doesn't matter how many comparisons get thrown in the mix. It doesn't matter if two people are slugging it out in front of the tv cameras, one trying to prove that it does and the other trying to prove that it doesn't.

Fact is, racism is real and it exists in the USA in many forms. America has a documented history of it-this country was built on it, and that's a fact. Economically, politically and socially. Problem is, many in this country will try to walk over water before they admit it exists. Folks like Bill O'Reilly can continue to play the blind card as long as he wishes, but the fact of the matter is, deep down inside, he knows the truth, he's just afraid of it.

Because they're scared of the truth... lol It's just funny watching some of these media personalities deny this country's past/current ills. to the fullest, but many of them don't seem to have a problem pointing fingers at other world leaders and criticizing them for the treatment of their people or other situations that goes on in other countries. I mean sure America may have more freedom than other countries and opportunities other countries don't offer their citizens, but why is it so hard for many Americans to admit to this country's social/political ills?

It's bad enough many already refuse to admit how terrible America's past was, and already shoved that under the rug years ago, but even today, many still don't even want to admit America's present day ills and see it for what it is. It's the usual pretend it never or doesn't exist syndrome.

They deny it because the Conservative Republican party has been built on racism for the last 40 years, since Nixon's 'Southern Strategy", to gain white voters who were upset with Democrats for pushing civil rights for minorities. Race has been one the main tools they've used to consolidate power and gain voters
