Kristof Throws Down the Gauntlet

Nicholas Kristof gives Bill O'Reilly a Christmas cause:

So I have a challenge for Mr. O'Reilly: If you really want to defend traditional values, then come with me on a trip to Darfur. I'll introduce you to mothers who have had their babies clubbed to death in front of them, to teenage girls who have been gang-raped and then mutilated - and to the government-armed thugs who do these things.

You'll have to leave your studio, Bill. You'll encounter pure evil. If you're like me, you'll be scared. If you try to bully some of the goons in Darfur, they'll just hack your head off. But you'll also meet some genuine conservative Christians - aid workers who live the Gospel instead of sputtering about it - and you'll finally be using your talents for an important cause.

So, Bill, what'll it be? Will you dare travel to a real war against Christmas values, in which the victims aren't offended shoppers but terrified children thrown on bonfires? I'm waiting to hear.

Well Ilya, would it be a happy holidays humanitarian trip or a merry christmas humanitarian trip? Therein may lie your answer.

No Xtra, therein lies the stupidity prosecuted by O'Reilly, the backdrop against which Kristof's trip is proposed to really support the so-called Christmas values that O'Reilly feels the need to defend.
