Bill O'Reilly was shocked that no one at Sylvia's said "M-Fer, I want more iced tea." So Bill O'Reilly went to lunch with Al Sharpton at Sylvia's Restaurant in Harlem and was surprised to find that the famed soul food eatery was just like any other restaurant in the city, this despite the fact that it's run and patronized by black folks, Media Matters reported on its web site today (http://mediamatters.org/items/200709210007?f=h_latest).
I "couldn't get over the fact that there was no difference between Sylvia's restaurant and any other restaurant in New York City. I mean, it was exactly the same, even though it's run by blacks, primarily black patronship. It was the same," O'Reilly said on September 19 edition of his nationally syndicated radio program.
Later during his conversation with NPR correspondent and Fox News contributor Juan Williams, O'Reilly noted "There wasn't one person in Sylvia's who was screaming, 'M-Fer, I want more iced tea.' You know, I mean, everybody was—it was like going into an Italian restaurant in an all-white suburb in the sense of people were sitting there, and they were ordering and having fun. And there wasn't any kind of craziness at all."
Two questions:
1) Did he order falafel? Or a loofah? (http://www.thesmokinggun.com/archive/1013043mackris1.html)
2) Just how insane is this man?

For all his big mouth, he rarely ventured to unfamiliar territory.
He is a creature of habits. AC all the time, limo, same food, same restaurant
Base d on what he has been spewing other the years against blacks, he was
probably expecting wait staff in baggy pants with bling-bling and goatee.
That is what he insist all black people are

And those followers still believe Saddam Hussein had WMD, that he was involved in 911 attack, and most all that George Bush was put on this earth by God to bring freedom and democracy around the world.
Therefore, whatever he does is God's will. Anybody who dares criticism him and anti-Christian, liberal, anti-patriotic, immoral, etc...

It think it was deeper than that. Ignorant O'Reilly said no one was yelling Mf'er, I want some more ice tea. He's a damn fool that had to pay a former employee for sexual harassment charges against him.

Poor Bill, he thinks black people would yell over some iced tea.

If he knew any better he would know yelling doesn't start off on iced tea but kool aid.

Many of times, I've heard "Who the fuck drank all the kool aid!!!" :lol:

But seriously, this man is an idiot.
He just has this dirty cop look on him and everything he says reflects that look.

I don't expect any better from old white people. They're almost all the same in America, he just happened to be stupid enough to voice his views to the media.

As many of you know I watch FOX News Channel quite a bit (its on sky tv here in NZ). But that doesnt mean that I'll rush to Bill's defence here, although I think what he said here was just him loosing it for alittle bit (aint he 80 something now, give him a break)

Fox News anchors have been getting very, very good in the past 6 months. Greta has a great show, the people off Fox and Friends are getting very good (and now also appear on another channel here). Chris Wallace is better than ever, and the new chick that appears on 'The Big Story' is super hot (need I say more, if she took off her top I'm sure the show would get twice as many viewers)

Bill feels that he has to be controversial to keep his job!!!!

It makes me so angry that Congress is actually voting to condemn a group of citizens for using their First Amendment rights to critique a political shill and administration mouthpiece and meanwhile, the airwaves are filled with this kind of crap . Of course there are those who just shrug and go oh, he's entitled to say what he wants even if he's ignorant:rolleyes:
Bill O'Lie-lly really needs to get his ass out of the country club more often:o

Hey now, by some standards I'm an old white person, so watch it! ;) (I'll cut you some slack since you're a fellow Lena lover).

Why do I have this sudden urge to go into a nice suburban Italian restaurant and yell "MF, where's my iced tea" when it's time for a refill?

His perception of black people is totally screwed up! I suspect he is not the only one with that mucked up view point. If they would only come down from their ivory elitist towers and see people for who they really are instead of believing the misconceptions perpetuated by the white media then maybe their views of the world would become more moderate and understanding. They sit up they and they make moral judgments against people they don't know even though we have shared this land with them for centuries. They just don't feel it is necessary to learn about the cultures around them but they easily believe and hold as true the vegetative images that are perpetuated. In every culture their is a small sub-culture and any intelligent person would not take the sub-culture language and habits and define the main group. If that were the case I would have to start believing some really shitty things about the other races around me.

Shouldn't it be "gooba - bring the vino now or sleep with the fishes!"?

What a silly thing to get bent out of shape about.

Bill 'I'm Full of Myself' O'Reilly......that's the target again.
It's just a nice way for Al to get on tv, and for Bill's no rating
radio show to get more listeners, and attention.



If you say Harlem, there is a picture that forms in the mind.
Ditto, if you say The Bada-Bing Club in New Jersey, or a
restaurant in Hells Kitchen. There is a stereotype that
perpetuated by the media, culture, music, tv, etc. that
has been created.

O'Reilly is pretty much saying, it was like Marie Callendars in
Orange County. Listeners of my conservative radio show, don't
bother with the stereotypes, I ate there, and it was very
pleasant and like any other place around your town......that's it.
Big deal. Allthose music videos and movies that promote the
gangster lifestyle and importance in the black community, those
are more to blame for the stereotype, than anything O'Reilly says
or thinks.

His biggest audience is 1/100th of MTV or BET's programming.



What is not surprising is the Isiah Thomas trial and his deposition
not making more headlines in the news. The guy said that calling a black
woman a 'b' is okay in the black community, like he evidently did in the
work place regularly. Not okay to call a white woman that, per Isiah,
but, a black woman, oh yeah, that's fine.

Al, NAACP, that's something to comment on, and deride Isiah for....

It's Bill O'Reilly - who cares.

There were a number of stories in the media about Isiah's remarks.

People who don't watch Faux News most likely heard about them, but nobody bothered to make a thread.

Says the person who fervently believes Christians in America are under attack.

Why is it that every time someone on the right gets called out for something, you inevitably trot out a case to try to prove there is some double standard? The problem with this tactic is that you tend to choose things that HAVE been reported in the media (e.g. Isaiah's comments), and then try to say that hardly anybody is reporting on these stories. Try getting your news from real outlets, seriously.

Also, the problem I had with Bill's comments is that he seemed to sincerely have believed those stereotypes would somehow hold true in this situation. If this gets him to stop thinking in ignorant stereotypes, I suppose that's a good thing - but he should be embarrassed, really, if the image he wants to project is that of an intelligent, rational thinker. Though perhaps anyone who buys into that image should be even more embarrassed.

His show is about to be canceled. He has no listeners and in the NY area, his show is on tape delay.:haha: :haha:

His show on cable is losing viewers; that is why he bring up sensational stories to get the dumbassess who believe his shit to get ratings

I saw his show today at 7pm CST on fox.

I laughed when they brought in the priest who was a "news correspondent" or something like that.

WTF!!! How are Christians under attack? I never did like Fox News, far too right winged for me. But I did watch that story about San Francisco not wanting to film a recruting ad. That was sort of wrong.
