Faux News fascist Bill O’Racist has a bug up his arse for “Illegal Immigrants.” This segment is a graphic depiction of the blind and undisguised hatred that underlies the anti-immigration debate. It is a noxious mix of xenophobia and racism and Geraldo Rivera deftly pushes back with reason. However, you can see the inner conflict on his face. At best, Geraldo Rivera is a smooth talking, self-absorbed, shameless self-promoter whose politics lean center-right.
It pains him to correct Bill O’Racist but Geraldo had no choice when Bill cracked on air spewing spittle and hatred his direction. O’Racist’s crack up was reminiscent of one of my favorite cinematic characters played by Michael Douglas-“D-FENS.”The put upon D-FENS, an unemployed defense worker, cracks up in LA during a traffic jam and becomes a psycho vigilante attacking colored folks. Everyone who works at Faux News seems to be channeling this character at some point during the day. To be perfectly honest, I would be too if they paid me what they paid O’Racist.
