Bill O’Reilly (pictured) hasn’t handled the results of this year’s presidential election well. If you tuned in to FOX News’s unintentional comedic coverage that night, you might’ve heard the popular conservative pundit bemoan the shift of the electorate with a big whiff of racism.
At the time, O’Reilly claimed:
The demographics are changing. It’s not a traditional America anymore, and there are 50 percent of the voting public who want stuff, they want things. And who is going to give them things? President [Barack] Obama.
“The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart decoded “traditional voters” on his show for what it is — racism — and O’Reilly has now responded with more racism. Give yourself a few seconds to breathe if you’re overcome with great shock.

The talk show host said on Monday’s edition of “The O’Reilly Factor”:
If you look at the exit polling, you’ll see that a coalition of voters put the President back into the oval office. That coalition was non-tradition, which means it veered away from things like traditional marriage, robust capitalism, and self-reliance.
Instead, each constituency that voted for the President — whether it be single women, Hispanic Americans, African Americans, whatever — had very specific reasons for doing so. […]
Traditional American voters generally want a smaller government in Washington, more local control, some oversight on abortion, and believe in American exceptionalism.
For such a stickler of tradition, you’d think O’Reilly would point out how White people often take up the lion’s share of welfare benefits, but that would take away from the primitive view of Black people that he holds near and dear to his heart.
If you recall, when O’Reilly once joined Al Sharpton for dinner in Harlem, he mentioned how he simply ”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.” To his surprise, “There wasn’t one person in Sylvia’s who was screaming, ‘Motherf*cker, I want more iced tea!’”
