Bill O'Reilly: immigration is changing the complexion of America

I read this transcript from the May 29 edition of Westwood One's The Radio Factor with Bill O'Reilly on the Media Matters website: Bill O’Reilly is speaking:
On the other side, you have people who hate America, and they hate it because it's run primarily by white, Christian men. Let me repeat that. America is run primarily by white, Christian men, and there is a segment of our population who hates that, despises that power structure. So they, under the guise of being compassionate, want to flood the country with foreign nationals, unlimited, unlimited, to change the complexion -- pardon the pun -- of America. Now, that's hatred, too.

It is clear from that quote that, in Bill O’Reilly’s mind, the most important thing to know about immigrants are whether or not they are white. One would almost be tempted to suspect that Bill O’Reilly fears that whatever success he has achieved was only possible because he is a white Christian man in a majority white Christian nation. He seems to be projecting his own fears onto others so that in his mind people advocating immigration reform are primarily motivated by a desire to take power away from Bill O’Reilly.

You should know that the only good immigration is WASP's. And I don't mean the little flying buzzing kind.
