Cattle are well-fed and have decent lodgings provided by the farmer.

Needless to say, there are other things at steak here.


#3

The words that come out of that man’s mouth are less likely to be useful than the words of a random toddler.

#5

Why is he still allowed to talk in public?


#6

Apparently slavery was so great that it had to be abolished before all the white people volunteered to switch places with the slaves.


#7

So. . . slavery isn’t so bad? When conservatives equate Obamacare with slavery they’re saying it’s. . . not so bad?

Do I have this right?

Do these idiots ever consider the implications of their nonsense?


#8

No no no no no. That’s just the White House building slaves. The rest of the slaves had it hard, like, Obamacare hard.


#9

You know, I would be inclined to ask O’Reilly how he knows this. Has he researched it? I wouldn’t demand graduate-level work, but chain letters don’t count. It’s not possible he’s just running his mouth, is it?


#10

Because no one has surgically removed his vocal cords yet?


#11

How does this joke still have a damn job?


#12

is it too late for this?

this gif should not be this useful, but I guess I have to remind myself it is the inertnet.


#13

Never.


#14

And we know how the slave owners treated their chattel…


#15

Video not available for some reason, and goddamn it too, because I love K&P.

“Slavery wasn’t so bad” is a common kind of dog-whistling among right-wing racists like O’Reilly.

“Oh, they gave you food and shelter! Something not everyone of that time had, don’tchaknow!”

If Trump wins the election, I imagine someone is going to float the idea of indentured servitude for debtors or criminals or something, because it’s “better than Welfare!”


#17

May have seen this on BB but not sure … This is great stuff.


#18

HuMERicaaaaa
Best f*#%in slave quarters on the PlaHEnet oh yeaaaaaaaarrrrrrr


#19

It was such a sweet deal that he dreams of his children one day being slaves.

Christ, what an asshole!


#20

Apparently O’Reilly hasn’t gotten the memo that dog whistles are no longer necessary…
