As President Barack Obama’s approval ratings continue to plummet and the ‘Obamacare debacle’ is still unfolding, his foot soldiers are on the march, defending his failed tenure, stoking ‘ socially engineered’ racial tension…
American media mogul Oprah Winfrey, has been busy on the circuit plugging her Hollywood production entitled, ‘The Butler’, but in a recent interviewed on the BBC, she claimed that the current U.S. President has been ‘disrespected’ because of the color of his skin, but rest assured, as Winfrey has a ‘final solution’ to end racism in the world today. She tells the BBC:
“there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”
Early this year billionaire Winfrey, one of the world’s wealthiest women, claimed that she too was a victim of modern-day racism. Back in July of 2013, jet-setting TV icon walked into Trois Pommes high-end fashion boutique in Zurich, Switzerland, and stated the a shop assistant wouldn’t show her a specific handbag based on its price. The shop assistant quickly branded Oprah a ‘liar’, which prompted Oprah to go into PR damage control mode, before saying that she regretted mentioning the store and that the incident had been overblown:
“I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up.”
Continuing, Oprah added:
“I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland.”
Breitbart.com prompted the fair in August, “Why didn’t Oprah want to announce to the world the name of a store that practices racism?”
(To be fair, the incident should be of major concern to our readers who can afford to fly via private jet, shop and do their banking in Switzerland over a weekend)
Oprah also compared the death of Trayvon Martin to that of Emmett Till. Til was a 14-year old, who was apparently viciously murdered for flirting with a white woman in 1955. George Zimmerman was found by Florida courts to have killed Martin in self-defense – vastly different from what Til endured, nonetheless Winfrey put this highly divisive talking point out in the public discourse.
Common sense: Commentator and author ET Williams weighs in on Obama and his supporters… “Blacks are enslaved on the Democrat’s plantation“.
How influential are media moguls like Winfrey and the Hollywood culture machine in shaping the national conversation on “race”? Back in August, I had a report titled “The Propaganda Machine: The Deen-Martin Psyop Shoots T.V. Zombies,” where it was revealed that the long running television series Law & Order: SUV, was to combine both the controversy surrounding Chef Paula Deen’s comments and the death of Trayvon in a clever ‘rewrite’ distorting reality:
“In this case it’s the much celebrated death of Trayvon Martin, where the show’s producers borrow the likeness of famed television chef Paula Deen, depicting a Deen-like chef gunning down a young black teen, apparently because she thought he was a rapist.”
“Over the past few months, Deen was thrust into the public’s eye for her alleged racial discrimination of a former employee and was publicly crucified much in the same way George Zimmerman was over the death of Trayvon Martin.”
We’ve seen a disturbing trend in the entertainment world, as Hollywood continues to promote and produce historically inaccurate films such as Quentin Tarantino’s film Django Unchained, which seemed more interested in exploiting race-relations for profit.
Following the Zimmerman trial, Attorney Jasmine Rand admitted to being a ‘social engineer’ outside of her duties with law firm Parks & Crump.
Was Oprah also acting in this manner, in a more subliminal way?
Is this the real Oprah-Effect?
Where have Oprah, Obama and Al Sharpton been in the wake of the ‘knockout game’ violence that has been sweeping across the country?
The knockout game, as it has been dubbed, is where a person or a group of people happen upon an unsuspecting victim and try to knock them out in one hit, seemingly without motive. This rash of violence started directly after the ‘Justice for Trayvon’ mobs had terrorized individuals following the Zimmerman trial.
Could it be… that people are unhappy with Obama because of his lack of leadership, in addition to his many failed and questionable policies - and not the color of his skin? That’s a question worth exploring.
Oprah: ‘Racists Have to Die for Racism to End’
Oprah Winfrey, one of the wealthiest people in the world, is throwing the race card again.
During an interview with the BBC Friday, she not only said that President Obama is treated with disrespect because he’s black, but also that entire generations of racists are going to have to die for racism to end (video follows with transcript and commentary):
WILL GOMPERTZ, BBC: The issue of the civil rights movement, and the way that black people around the world are treated, particularly I suppose in, around the world…
OPRAH WINFREY: Around the world.
GOMPERTZ: Around the world. Look at place like Russia, it’s, you know…
WINFREY: Around the world.
GOMPERTZ: So is this, is this, I suppose from a movie point of view, what the movie and the messages hold and the other movies we were discussing, and “Scottsboro Boys,” are these historical comments or are we still looking at a contemporary issue?
WINFREY: Good question. Well phrased. Good job. It would be foolish to not recognize that we have evolved in that we’re not still facing the same kind of terrorism against black people en masse as was displayed with the Scottsboro boys. It’s gotten better. Are there still places where people are terrorized because of the color of their skin, because of the color of their black skin? Yes. But there are laws that have allowed us to progress beyond what we saw in the Scottsboro boys and beyond the even the prejudice we see in “The Butler.”
Notice that Winfrey added “color of their black skin.” Why not just leave it as “color of their skin?”
Why do folks such as her only see racism through the prism of how blacks are treated? By looking at the problem so narrowly, doesn’t it make matters worse?
We are by far the most diverse nation in the world containing more ethnic and religious groups than any other on the planet.
Likely each of them has at times rightly or wrongly felt mistreated for the color of their skin or their religious beliefs.
When we as a nation look at this problem more honestly and not just as it pertains to one group, racism will have a chance of being solved.
Unfortunately, Winfrey has another solution:
GOMPERTZ: Are you saying problem solved?
WINFREY: I’m saying problem not solved. I’m saying that, you know, that’s the beauty of a film like “The Butler,” and it’s the beauty of a film like “12 Years a Slave,” and it’s the beauty of what we’re seeing on stage with “Scottsboro Boys” is that it allows people to see where the root of the problem started. It allows people to see, “Oh, that’s where it all started, this is how far we’ve come, and now this is how much farther we need to go.” Of course problem is not solved. You know, as long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, problem’s not solved. As long as there are people who still, there’s a whole generation – I say this, you know, I said this, you know, for apartheid South Africa, I said this for my own, you know, community in the south – there are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.
