I admire and respect Oprah Winfrey for her talent and business success. She was the recipient last Sunday of the Golden Globes' annual Cecil B. DeMille award for lifetime achievement at a gathering of her ultra-leftist Hollywood friends and is now being seriously touted by Democrats as the best candidate to beat Donald Trump for President of the United States in 2020.
Seriously? Is this the best they've got?
Winfrey has cultivated over many years huge celebrity to her female fans as the soft fuzzy image of a modern day enlightened everywoman with her self-aware, self-help, positive-thinking attitude.
She fancies herself a champion for women and women’s rights as indicated by her acceptance speech lecture to men during Sunday night's award ceremony:
“So I want tonight to express gratitude to all the women who have endured years of abuse and assault because they, like my mother, had children to feed and bills to pay and dreams to pursue… For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men. But their time is up. Their time is up.”
Oprah and the rest of her shallow minded Hollywood lady friends at the event were dressed in black as a tribute to all the women in history who’ve been sexually exploited, assaulted and abused by men. Conspicuously not mentioned in her speech was her best Hollywood buddy, Harvey Weinstein, the greatest sexual abuser of them all.
Winfrey it seems was one of Harvey’s most ardent enabler’s when it came to procuring female victims for his sexual gratification escapades. That’s Oprah herself sucking on Weinstein’s ear at an earlier Hollywood awards ceremony in 2014…
You see, Oprah has maintained a very close personal and professional relationship with Harvey Weinstein over the past two decades. British actress Kadian Noble, one of his many accusers claims he employed Oprah to lure her in before sexually assaulting her. “I felt completely played,” she said. Even after he was exposed as a sexual predator, Oprah called him to offer her advice and support.
So much for Oprah Winfrey being a champion of women and women’s rights.
If Winfrey will run for president, what is her position on the issues, you might ask? What are her policies? In fact, she supports a one world global government. She’s a globalist. In the past, she’s met with George Soros, David Rockefeller, Bill Gates, Ted Turner and others at a secret billionaire’s club to promote a world government program designed to reduce the African population by around 50%.
So much for her position on human rights.
What about Winfrey’s past? One 2010 book describes it and her “hidden life” in considerable detail – how she concocted stories about sexual abuse she suffered as a child and grossly exaggerated the poverty she was brought up in. She went to great lengths to conceal her "lesbian affairs," including hefty payoffs, and publicly attached herself to a man friend to appear more normal to her audience of housewives.
She admits that she sold her body to earn extra money and even described herself as a teen "prostitute." Her father, Vernon Winfrey, says he's been dismayed by how Oprah plays fast and loose with the truth. "She may be admired by the world, but I know the truth," he says. "So does God and so does Oprah; two of us remain ashamed."
Her biggest contribution to the self-improvement aspect of her life is her promotion of retail therapy -- the idea that you can spend your way to happiness and fulfillment. She makes the contradictory claims that happiness is available for everyone and that $25 pairs of socks are the way to get it. She’s an awfully expensive person to emulate. She’s just another big government spending leftist.
Her TV show is hardly more sophisticated than Jerry Springer’s. She presents it as an empathetic platform for discussing serious issues, but at heart, it’s still a freak show. The only difference between her show and the low-rent versions is that Oprah gets the A-list freaks. There’s no great truth she’s seeking from her guests.
Oprah’s been lauded as the world’s most powerful and most influential woman due to her millions of viewers, readers, and listeners, and no other talk-show host, celebrity, or world leader has the aura of authority that Oprah has. But while celebrity worship is nothing new, the "cult of Oprah" is on an entirely new level. Her most devout admirers watch her religiously, quote her as an expert, and scramble for every product she endorses or even mentions. The idea that Oprah expresses anything more valuable than her own opinions gives her a level of misplaced trust she doesn’t deserve.
The leftists want Oprah Winfrey for President..
Seriously? Is this the best they've got?
