I Guess We Should Be Grateful He Didn't Use the Word "Orientals"

Media Matters noticed that Bill O'Reilly decided he had a lot to say about Asian-Americans yesterday. Here's video:


The money shot is this: "...Asian people are not liberal, you know, by nature. They're usually more industrious and hard-working." There is so much wrong with those two sentences that I don't even know where to begin. First of all, Republicans are going to have to get off this bullshit theory that all liberals are lazy. It's a big reason why Mitt Romney lost the presidency, and it's an off-putting fallacy. Second, Gallup disagrees with O'Reilly. Third, you might not want to insult an incredibly diverse group of Americans with broad generalizations if you're trying to win their vote.
