The White Establishment

Bill O’Reilly, the man with a quick tongue and ability to write nonsensical books, has created a storm of anger. He charges that any attempt to challenge the Trump victory or seek a Constitutional change in the electoral system is really a dagger pointed to the hearts of those belonging to the White Establishment. He fervently believes in minority rule in order to protect the White Establishment. In fairness to Bill, he has, as of this date, never completely described who is or who belongs in the White Establishment.

I am born in 1930 at a time when the expression of a White Establishment meant those who belonged to the WASP -White Anglo Saxon Protestant– group. As a child of east European immigrants, I was not a WASP nor were my Catholic friends. I gather that Bill is now going to allow we former outcasts from the White Establishment to enter its hallowed grounds. Fantastic. Bill, do I need some sort of document to get in?

Oh, to be clear, a WASP was a male, no females allowed.
