The Factor thought it was a great idea to defend the man running for Fuhrer in 2016, Donald J. Trump, whose racism is just a figment of our imagination. Since Bill O'Reilly has buried his head in the sand for the last few decades, Trump's obvious racism is not real.
O'REILLY: 'Of course Mr. Trump denies any racial animus, and I've known him for twenty-five years and I've never seen any of that.'
The No Spin Zone is really the Fact-Free Zone. He ignores volumes of evidence that Trump has a tumultuous history of racial animus.
The U.S. Department of Justice sued Donald Trump’s real-estate company, Trump Management Corporation, for racial discrimination in 1973 for allegedly refusing to rent apartments to blacks and lying to them about rental conditions and prices.
In addition to this debacle, sample quotes attributed to Trump for a 1991 book by John R. O'Donnell reveal a racist and anti-Semitic streak. The mogul reportedly remarked that "laziness is a trait in blacks" and he doesn’t like blacks to handle his money. "Black guys counting my money! I hate it,” Trump reportedly said. “The only kind of people I want counting my money are short guys that wear yarmulkes every day."
In 2002, supporters of the Central Park 5, five black youth wrongfully convicted of raping a white woman in the park 13 years earlier, asked Trump to apologize for running newspaper ads targeting the then teen suspects. Although the ad did not identify anyone by name, it warned “criminals of every age” accused of the crime “to be afraid.” It mentioned how Trump wanted “to hate these muggers and murderers” and stated that “they should be forced to suffer.”
Lest anyone forget what a YUGE birther Trump is. Statements like,
'How do you get into Harvard if you're not a good student? Now, maybe that’s right, or maybe it’s wrong. But I don’t know why he doesn’t release his records.”
The insinuation here is that Obama made his way to the Ivy League by way of affirmative action, that he’s just another undeserving minority who played the system. But where was Trump when George W. Bush was outed as being a C student at Yale University? No movement sprang up to suggest that Dubya didn’t deserve to be in office because he wasn’t smart enough.
Dana Perino, Dubya's Press Secretary and accomplice to a multitude of war crimes, helps stoke the ludicrous notion that the GOP is unfairly accused of racism, where does anyone get that idea? She claims that this racism card is their (the Left's) playbook, and they've been exploiting that notion 'since the early 60's.'
PERINO: 'I've always held the rule that Republicans start in a credibility deficit especially on race, so you have to work your way up just to get to neutral...If you give them ammunition with which to hit you, it's hard then to crawl up out of that hole and get to neutral.'
O'REILLY: But here's the difference between Donald Trump and all the other politicians is, he doesn't care... He made it quite clear that he wants to deport all illegal aliens and a new poll from Fox today shows that majority Americans, over 50% agree with that, deport them all. He doesn't care if Muslims are offended by surveillance, special surveillance for them, he doesn't care. Alright, while he doesn't have personal racial animus, and again, I never saw anything like that, alright, his policies can be defined that way by the opposition, and again, I don't think he cares about that.'
Perino explains that the Republican brand has an unfavorability rating of 55%, with only a 35% approval rating. The problem is that when the president was overseas (again, insinuating that he was on an apology tour, kissing the asses of Muslims as he does), he just attacked Republicans, failing to ask for a well-deserved 'pause' with regards to accepting Syrian refugees. Nevermind that President Obama could see how blatantly idiotic and reactionary it was to ban these refugees, especially in light of France's decision to keep accepting these unfortunate victims of terror too. Perino is offended that the Commander in Chief sees how the world is appalled at the ill-conceived notion that the Paris attacks were the work of refugees.
Commencing the recitation of fictional statistics they are so fond of at Faux, Dana Perino said that Paul Ryan managed to get '76 Democrats to go along with him,' except that the number was actually, once again, 47. What's with 47? It seems to be a popular negative number, from Willard Romney's 47%, Tom Cotton's 47 Traitors and now 47 spineless Democrats being cowards, succumbing to idiotic GOP fear-mongering. The number of 76 was pulled from the same orifice that O'Reilly pulled his Trump isn't racist at all poppycock.
Next, time for Bill-O to fall back on his tired 'the president is collapsing' rhetoric. He's mentioned this in 2013, once again, here in 2014, and countless times this year; so any day now, things will implode. Surely things will be set straight and a 'transformative' candidate like Donald Trump will right this liberal ship and return the U.S. to the destructive, corrupt and incapable leadership of his beloved Republican Party.
The 'Factor' host and his guest just don't understand why President Obama, who's shown NO LEADERSHIP, is still alive and kicking. The big problem is that the Left, who controls the media, as is evidenced by this program, will beat the racism drum and unfairly doom the GOP, while driving this nation into a ditch. Low unemployment, an impressive stock market recovery and a thoughtful foreign policy that doesn't thrust us into another expensive and ill-conceived war are the exact metrics of failed leadership in the parallel universe of GOP-TV. Yeah guys, this is exactly how it is; thanks for setting this Leftist straight.
