It seems you can pick any word you want and make it a racist term.

I think you will at some point run out of words, but good luck to you.

He didn't actually say what you say he did. You read into what he said the words you add. I think that says more about you than it does him.

And because of people like OReilly, Beck, and Limbaugh they don't believe in the Republican Party, and I hope it stays that way.

He directly quoted O'Reilly, who did say those things. And O'Reilly is wrong; government helping Americans in need is a tradition that goes back at least eighty years. O'Reilly then, obviously is using "traditional" as code for "white men."

Actually it isn't obvious. It is made up in the minds of people who wish to slander him.

Just like the Irish in the 19th century.

Ok, I'll bite.

On this doll, can you tell from where did O'Reilly pulled the information to make his assertion?

What the clueless Bill O'Reilly seems to forget is that over a century ago his immigrant group was looked upon in the same way he looks on others today.

Just a small taste:

The Chicago Post wrote, "The Irish fill our prisons, our poor houses...Scratch a convict or a pauper, and the chances are that you tickle the skin of an Irish Catholic. Putting them on a boat and sending them home would end crime in this country."

From "The Irish in America: 1840's-1930's"

"The Irish were ostracized from American society for many things besides just being newcomers. The Irish were ostracized for being Catholic. Many Protestants and "native" Americans were distrustful of a religion that was, as they viewed it, highly irregular with its beads, meditative prayers to Jesus' mother, oils, saints and statues. The Irish were also categorized as angry, alcoholic beings--( the term "don't get your Irish up", stemmed from a stereotypical belief in the volatile Irish temper) who drank all the time in saloons and had regular bar brawls and parties filled with revelry and debauchery. They were illiterate, greedy,--therefore desperate to make it "Micks on the Make"--their families were too clannish, bred like rabbits, and the Irish were entirely figured to be a stupid servant race by the Bostonians and most of "native" America. These images were portrayed in the daily Boston and New York newspapers, photographs, and other media of the time. Those looking to escape these stereotypes and rise above them to be part of American society like Joseph P. Kennedy, had to work hard and take many knocks before any change was rendered. "

It's truly remarkable what a dumb sack of shit O'Reilly is, and how so many like him find a home at Fox News.

I pick Pretzel.

Explain how pretzel is racist, or go ahead and make it racist, as an example.

O'Reilly is an entertainer. The chances of making it in the entertainment business is pretty slim. Luck has much to do with his success. He has no special skill or knowledge; he just has an ability to talk up a storm. He should stop pretending like everybody could be him if they only worked hard enough.

This comes naturally, because the Politically Incorrect fact is that neither the Left’s black, Hispanic or Jewish components have any real tradition of free speech.

Well, if we really valued "Traditional" values, voters whatever --we'd still be subjects of a monarchy.

Today O'Reilly did a segment where women in France dressed as topless nuns. Protesting, Bill said, traditional marriage.

That coalition was non-tradition, which means it veered away from things like traditional marriage, robust capitalism, and self reliance. Instead, each constituency that voted for the President — whether it be single women, Hispanic Americans, African Americans, whatever — had very specific reasons for doing so.
Traditional American voters generally want a smaller government in Washington, more local control, some oversight on abortion, and believe in American exceptionalism.

That is what he said.

Not "Black Voters Don’t Believe In ‘Self Reliance’ Or ‘American Exceptionalism’"

Actually a good number of African Americans in the USA support traditional marriage, so that can't make sense. I mean if traditional marriage is really white marriage....

That word is not a term that only racists use.

1) You're a coward. You let the Page slip, so you can answer uncontested.

2) I'd spell you the full explanation, but the chair next to me is making a more interesting conversation.
