Damned by their own words are the Republicans. So eager is Bill O’Reilly to present their convention as a success (compared, they claim, to the Democratic convention), he claimed on Monday’s O’Reilly Factor that he “didn’t see any discord” at the GOP Convention, “just a bunch of white people having a good time.”
There it is, and yes, in their own words. A bunch of white people. There is your GOP folks.

BILL O’REILLY (HOST): When you say the Republican convention got off to a bad start —
MARY ANNE MARSH: It did.
O’REILLY: Was that because of the Melania Trump speech? Is that what you are referring to?
MARSH: No. There was that, but there was discord on the floor.
O’REILLY: I was there, I didn’t see any discord. I just saw a bunch of white people having a good time, that’s all I saw.
KATIE PAVLICH: There was a minor floor fight.
MARSH: Trying to stop Donald Trump from becoming the nominee.
O’Reilly says he saw nothing. He somehow missed Ted Cruz not only neglect to endorse Donald Trump but to endorse himself for 2020 instead. The GOP Convention was a disaster from beginning to end.
And all O’Reilly saw was white people having a good time. Of course, they had it at the expense of everyone else, from blacks to Mexicans to Muslims to women to gays.
Hillary Clinton is not having that problem. Everybody is endorsing her, including Bernie Sanders. This is more math Republicans do to feel better about themselves.

His interests include, besides history and philosophy, human rights issues, freedom of choice, religion, and the precarious dichotomy of freedom of speech and intolerance. He brings a slightly different perspective to his writing, being that he is neither a follower of an Abrahamic faith nor an atheist but a polytheist, a modern-day Heathen who follows the customs and traditions of his Norse ancestors. He maintains his own blog, A Heathen’s Day, which deals with Heathen and Pagan matters, and Mos Maiorum Foundation www.mosmaiorum.org, dedicated to ethnic religion. He has also contributed to NewsJunkiePost, GodsOwnParty and Pagan+Politics.
