Bill O’Reilly goes head-to-head with David Duke.
“We’re all in it together and skin color doesn’t matter” – Bill O’Reilly.
Fortunately, the hyperbolic leftists over at Salon fully understood the cynicism of a race-baiting conservative bashing Duke for racism:
For O’Reilly, Duke was an ideal foil; the presence of the racist demagogue allowed the Fox News host to present himself as the reasonable conservative, while casting Duke as a fringe figure who did not belong in the conservative movement. Never mind that O’Reilly, who assails the idea that such a thing as white privilege exists, denies the very existence of institutional racism — hence his fantastical notion that in the age of Michael Brown, Eric Garner, and Tamir Rice, “skin color doesn’t matter” in America. To the conservative mind, it’s far easier to cast overt bigots like David Duke — not, say, America’s criminal justice system — as the real faces of American racism.
