Bill O’Reilly: ‘Ms. Kelly is correct, Santa is a white person’

Bill O’Reilly, the top cable news host for more than a decade, entered the fray Monday over whether Santa is white, saying fellow Fox News host Megyn Kelly was right in her assertion.

After a quick history lesson on Santa, which begins with Saint Nicholas, born around 280 A.D., O’Reiily showed the first sketch of what would come to be the modern incarnation of Santa Claus, and said, “Ms. Kelly is correct. Santa is a white person.”

“Does it matter?” he then asked.

“No, it doesn’t matter, he continued. “The spirit of Santa transcends all racial boundaries. It is a spirit based on generosity kindness to kids, and magical moments.”

O’Reilly put all the hubbub over Santa’s race into proper perspective when he said that because the liberal media “can’t defeat [FNC] on the media battlefield, the far left seeks to demonize Fox News as a right-wing propaganda machine and a racist enterprise.”

As he so aptly noted, any talk of skin color brings out the zealots.

    Yes, St Nicholas was from Europe and is white. And its time for liberals to grow up.

      Actually he was Greek, and born near a city called Demre in was is today Turkey. He would have looked like a Greek or Turk of the same time period which was not white. It was not black either, but not exactly white.

        Well, if the left can pass off george Zimmerman as white, I would suppose that the original St. Nicholas would have to be classified as white also. Just saying.

          Greeks are White and Turks during the time of St. Nick were no different racially then any other European. It was before the Arabs invaded. Even today most Turks are White and Caucasian….Its so ignorant that so may Americans no nothing about DNA or genetics…I as a White Irish, Scotch and Hebrew (Jewish) get sick of this supremacist nonsense….

      • james

        Greeks are definitely white and Caucasian…Also most Turks are considered white today..Only a supremacist would see it differently….

    it won’t take long before the left says George Washington was black. And for the next Star Wars Darth Vader will be white. Hey I’m mad as heil Mickey is black.
