Aw schucks, here from the horse's behind on a thread you probably worship. Enjoy:

Fox News Channel's Bill O'Reilly has apologized for incorrectly stating that no Republicans were invited to participate in a ceremony this week marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington for civil rights and Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

In fact, Republican House Speaker John Boehner and Majority Leader Eric Cantor were invited but did not attend. Former President George W. Bush sent a statement in commemoration. O'Reilly had made the incorrect claim on Wednesday, the day of the ceremony.

"The mistake - entirely on me," O'Reilly said on his show Thursday. "I simply assumed that since all the speakers were liberal Democrats, Republicans had been excluded. So here's the tip of the day: Always check out the facts before you make a definitive statement and when you make a mistake, admit it."

O'Reilly said the Republicans made a mistake, too. He said they should have been there.

Obama has resurrected the deepest racial divisions in America since the Civil War. He will go down in history as The Great Divider.

<quoted text>If you are suggesting that today's young people are less bigoted than in previous generations, I agree.
As for your unawareness of people who teach their children to hate, the teaching can be subtle. A direct approach is to be white supremacist, KKK or Nazi, and pass your hatred along to your impressionable kids. A more gentle method is to bark some religious bias to them, which would suggest that people of your own kind are better than others.
Well Laurie i guess you either don't pay attention to the media black out on black on white crime and black on white hate crimes or you partake in the lies being fed to the public.
Young blacks are far from being bigoted and the violence they inflict upon whites on a daily basis is all the evidence anyone needs.
In fact the violence from whites in the past pale in comparison.
When i think of teaching people to hate, the Black Panthers come to mind.
Here Laurie, observe what is really taking place, i know it doesn't fit your agenda but don't let the facts get in your way, black violence against whites is epidemic.

We should care, dear, when a so-called news channel spends air time whitching, whining and whinging about a smear that is totally untrue.

Riley is paid to rile up the animal base of haters but he should at least rile them up with facts - not hate, facts - not vomit and facts - not fiction.

Even if those facts don't fit into the fux scenario.

Tells you a lot about the republicants ....
When did they ask pookie. How far in advance did the others get invited. You will find that all the left wants to do is mask the photo's of the original MLK march, where no one from the left was there. They have with the MSM rewritten history and the low information voters eat it up as a pig does slop.

RIGHT! it's her money and according to her messiah, it's wrong to be so rich so why does he not take her money and DISTRIBUTE IT EVENLY amongst her poor uneducated black homeless people? she is a proclaimed socialist, let her show the world how this really works....she works her big black butt off while others benefit from the sweat of her brow? show us Oprah, how this is done without obvious reluctance.

<quoted text>Your alibis are weak and carry no weight. Just as the military's absentee ballots were sent out late, so were the invitations to the right. It's a win win for the left. Lets go back to the original speech, were there any from the left there..........no, they were all republicans, because the Kennedy's were scared of King and were having the FBI follow him and build a file........bet you didn't hear that on Maddow.
I bet you heard that from the voices in your head, Le Jimcrow. Those aren't valid sources.

The Kennedy's were fighting the same fight that MLK was which is why Johnson carried out JFK's wishes and passed the Civil Rights Act after his death. Some inbred southerner who hated n*****s got out his shotgun and killed MLK and both Kennedys. It was in all the papers and was not some ridiculous conspiracy. You people really hate how much America loved the Kennedy's doncha? I bet if he was republican, you'd be singing a whole new tune.

Try again and this time keep your conspiracy theories to yourself. You sound more unhinged than usual.

MLK had a dream with living among whites, so swine devils put him to sleep. The only peace they afforded him was the peace of graveyards...

...It's time to wake for the simple reality that whites will always be racist.

And a bunch of free stuff at the direct expense of white Americans, along with daily assaults and murders and rapes of people; and if we dare say anything about it we're falsely accused of racism.

You and the majority of blacks are highly racist toward whites and can't see your double standard.

You can get the fuck out if you don't like it; we don't give a shit what you think.

The terms 'swine devil','piece of pork','piggy pal','hog-head' are all aimed to racist whites only.

I would never refer to decent whites in these terms.
