Who says that Bill O’Reilly only likes white people? Sure, he was shocked (I tell you) that black people in Harlem actually used forks instead of, oh, I don’t know, hammers? Hispanics, African-Americans and women voted for Obama because we like free stuff. He thinks President Obama has a grievance against white people and he thinks the Colin Powell only voted for the President because they have sort of similar skin tones. I could go on, but you get the idea. Before recently, O’Reilly hasn’t spoken much about the majority of the world who can be described as “Asian.” But according to him, they are hardworking and and industrious and best yet; Republican. Transcript from Media Matters:
BILL O’REILLY (host): Now I have to say, Hawaii is one of my favorite places in the world. It’s beautiful.
JESSE WATTERS (Fox News producer): Yeah, it’s beautiful.
O’REILLY: But when I’m there I’m under water. I’m not talking to pinheads. But the state is in enormous debt.
WATTERS: They are.
O’REILLY: Alright. They’ve got a lot of social problems. When you says it’s the biggest homeless thing, it’s because of the addiction.
O’REILLY: The addiction is rampant, all over the place, because they don’t enforce the drug laws.
O’REILLY: And, you know, I think the one person who said, Look, this is a place where people come to to escape. This is, you know, generally speaking. But you know what’s shocking? 35 percent of the Hawaiian population is Asian, and Asian people are not liberal, you know, by nature. They’re usually more industrious and hard-working.
WATTERS: But they did vote for President Obama –
O’REILLY: Big time.
WATTERS: — and if you add the indigenous native Hawaiian population –
O’REILLY: About 20 percent.
WATTERS: — to the Hispanic population, they outnumber whites by more than two to one.
Here’s the video:
I’m not sure if O’Reilly realizes that the word “Asian” encompasses the vast majority of the world’s population, including a large number of *gasp* Muslims.
Still, there is one Asian person who is not held in such high regard in O’Reilly’s mind, and that’s Psy, who created the world-wild phenomenon called “Gangnam Style,” which, in O’Reilly’s mind, represents the lack of insight and meaning in the modern world. Here’s that video:
Oh, and Asians overwhelmingly voted for Obama.
