Selective de-humanization

Pretty brazen, right up there with alleging there are palm trees in Madison, Wisconsin:

BILL O’REILLY: Americans are now caught up in a very important conflict: cost-cutting vs. union benefits.

According to a new CBS poll, 37 percent of Americans favor cutting pay or benefits for public union employees, but 56 percent oppose that. The New York Times headline on Tuesday was: “Majority in Poll Back Employees in Public Sector.” But the poll is misleading because 20 percent of the respondents say they are from union households. If you subtract them, those who favor cutting benefits win the poll.

Yes, that’s right, it never counts when you might be an interested person holding an opinion opposite of Bill O’Reilly. The fact that the very well-paid are the only income group that favors (and barely) restricting collectively bargain isn’t mentioned because in FoxWorld the wealthy are non-partisan pure intellects, unaffected by wants or desires — rich people are funny that way. In short, they’re just better than the rest of us, and no one is “more better” than you than Bill O’Reilly, just ask him.

Sadly, this isn’t even the most offensive example of a conservative doing this, right Byron York?

[Obama’s] sky-high ratings among African-Americans make some of his positions appear a bit more popular overall than they actually are.

Because African-American opinion doesn’t count for Byron York, not even 3/5ths as much as “real Americans”.
