The Joy of the New

Bill O'Reilly of FOX News observed that the "white establishment is now in the minority."

An "establishment" in the sense of a leadership class or power elite is almost by defintion always in a minority.
So what Mr. O'Reilly wanted to say is "white folks are in the minority... white folks and their white plans and their white schemes and dreams."
He could not really say that, so he disguised it as a pseudo-political statement about an "establishment".

As one elderly white guy, I salute President Obama, I salute the new establishment whatever color Mr. O'Reilly believes it to be.

We did not fight in "Nam to protect the rights of the Rich alone, and reverse the work of the Lord who casts the mighty from their thrones, and raises the lowly.
Nor did we go to protect Racism and the Subjugation of Women.
We finally are able to see what it is we fought for.
