In my last article, I briefly mentioned how even Oprah Winfrey running for President wouldn’t save the Democrat Party and the Left from the disaster that they currently are. Here, I want to further talk about this topic and point out many reasons why Oprah Winfrey would not beat Donald Trump and win the 2020 Presidential election should she choose to run.
First, I want to bring up the only point I made about this topic from the last article: she’s a Leftist who would bring back Obama policies.
Having endorsed then-candidate Barack Obama in 2008, it’s not crazy to think she would attempt to bring back Obama-type policies. Policies which had torn down America as much as possible for 8 years. Policies that were partly responsible for the rise and election of Donald Trump. Policies that put us in the mess we were in for nearly a decade and we’re still trying to get out of. And with Trump, we’re doing a pretty decent job so far of getting out of the mess Obama put us in.
Aside from policies, the Daily Wire gives us a countdown of five “fails” Oprah has made in her career (which translate into reasons she shouldn’t be elected).
According to the Daily Wire, number 5 is her Golden Globes Award Speech.
“Hollywood and the mainstream media promoted Oprah as ‘brave’ following her speech at the 75th Golden Globes Awards, but, as Shapiro pointed out (in an interview with Fox News), ‘What the hell kind of risk was she taking?’”, saying that “She was standing in front of an entire town filled with sexual abusers and harassers. She said nothing about it for 20 years; she was being cheered by people who said nothing about it for 20 years, and there she is pretending that she’s leading the fight.”
He continued: “Well, I was under the impression that most of us agreed with that stuff when this stuff first broke and she lauded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association. Where were they reporting on the sexual harassment and abuse scandal for the last 20 years?... Where was the Hollywood Press Association that was receiving such plaudits at the hands of Oprah Winfrey, again, a woman who was good friends with Harvey Weinstein, being cheered by Meryl Streep, a woman who gave a standing ovation to Roman Polanski?”
I would add on to that Streep comment by mentioning that she once referred to Weinstein as “God”. More importantly, TheGuardian.com reports that Polanski won’t face criminal charges for the allegations made in 1975 when he molested a 10-year-old girl. The reason? You honestly won’t believe it.
Because the allegations are too old.
Remind me again how old the allegations made against Roy Moore are? And yet that battle is still going on.
Regardless, we continue.
According to the Daily Wire, number 4 is that “Oprah suggests Americans are racist – even if they do not have ill will toward black people.”
“In a 2013 interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker, stars in ‘The Butler,’ strongly hinted that Americans were racist – even if they did not have any ‘ill will’ toward the black community.”
Winfrey said that “People don’t feel it’s race because people don’t call it race… A lot of people think if they think they’re not using the n-word themselves… and do not harbor ill will towards black people that it’s not racist. But to me, it’s ridiculous to look at that case and not to think that race was involved.”
So we’re racist even if we harbor no ill will against the black community? By the same token, isn’t assuming something like that inherently racist in itself? If you assume everyone else who is not black is racist, isn’t that racist itself? The funny thing is that, with everything the Left says about white people, if they replaced the word “white” with the word “black”, I can just imagine the shock they would get to find that what they’re saying is racist.
Racism is a two-way street. A black person can be racist against white people (case in point, the apparent Democrat front-runner) as much as a white person can be racist against black people. Neither is right. Neither should be accepted.
Alas, we move on.
The Daily Wire then says number 3 is: “Oprah gives platform to an Islamic scholar who says Islamic jihad is only a spiritual battle – not a ‘Holy War’.”
“Varun Soni, the dean of Religious Life at the University of Southern California, appeared on Winfrey’s ‘Belief’ series where she explained that all of the horrifying acts of violence committed in the name of Islam were all just great big misunderstandings of a core Islamic belief.”
“One of the most misunderstood concepts of Islam is ‘jihad’, which many people interpret as a ‘holy war’”, Soni said. “But there is nothing holy about war. What ‘jihad’ actually represents is an internal struggle, the battle that is raging in our own heart. And all of our religious traditions talk about that internal struggle. In that respect, jihad is not just a Muslim idea but it’s a reality of the human condition.”
Thankfully, the Daily Wire is quick to call out the b.s. “In the Quran, Mohammad speaks of jihad, or holy war, repeatedly. Though the concept of ‘greater jihad’ (internal spiritual battle against sin) has been a part of Islamic teaching since at least the 11th century, the word jihad is most often used in canonical writings to refer to armed conflict.”
What’s interesting is that the Quran also teaches its followers that it’s ok to deceive non-believers if it benefits Islam. They can even lie about rejecting Allah as long as they are not sincere about the rejection. They can deceive people that way if it means saving their lives (which in turn helps further the growth if Islam).
So it’s not surprising to see this Muslim “scholar” lying to Oprah and her viewers about what “jihad” means. If it were strictly an internal struggle, Muslims wouldn’t be killing people and calling it jihad!
Regardless, we move on.
According to the Daily Wire, number 2 is “Oprah makes ‘absolutely not true’ racism allegations against a store clerk in Europe.”
“Winfrey, the most powerful woman in the world, accused a clerk at a small store in Europe of being racist towards her but refused to offer any identifying information of the alleged incident. Eventually, the store and the clerk were discovered and they said Winfrey was a liar.”
This really is somewhat of an extension of the 4th “fail”. The one about how all Americans are racist. Although this one is more about a poor European store clerk. I don’t want to spend too much time on this one since it’s very similar to that 4th fail, but it’s worth mentioning that she is not hesitant of accusing people of being racist. Then again, she’s a Leftist, so it’s expected that she’ll accuse people of that.
Finally, and perhaps the most crushing to her potential presidential bid: “Oprah says older generations ‘just have to die’ to solve the problem of racism.”
While this also deals with the topic of racism, it’s more noteworthy considering the ACTUAL WORDS SHE USED to suggest a way to end racism.
“In a 2013 interview with BBC, Winfrey said that entire generations ‘just have to die’ to cure the problem of racism.”
The actual quote: “Of course [the problem of racism] 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.”
Man, Oprah Winfrey really doesn’t like old white people. She’s not saying that the concept of racism and practice of it has to die. She’s not saying that the mindset of racism has to die. No, she’s saying that old people who were “born and bred and marinated in it” have to die. Let’s not even give them a chance to change. No, because they were merely BORN into it, they have to die.
Funny enough, that’s awfully similar to the Nuremberg Laws established in Nazi Germany. Jewish people had to die (partly) if they could not or would not help the German War Machine. But even the Nazis were interested in at least somewhat keeping their Jewish captives alive, even if it’s at the edge of death. Not to take away anything from the horrors of the Holocaust, but it seems that Oprah would be more than ok with a genocide of old people.
Ok, that may be a bit much, but it’s clear she holds no love for old people if she doesn’t even want to give them the chance to change and makes assumptions that all old people are racist. That, in itself, is very hateful and bigoted.
To sum up, there’s no way Oprah would or even SHOULD beat Donald Trump in 2020. If the country does spectacularly well with Trump, there’s no reason for anyone to vote against him. There’s especially no reason to vote for someone who is as hypocritical and hateful as Oprah Winfrey is.
Ben Shapiro made the point that a presidential run would hurt her image of being a “uniter”. He says that merely getting political would hurt her image, since politics are always polarizing. Well, after reading all of this, it’s pretty clear that she’s not a “uniter” as people call her. She’s a hypocrite for covering for Harvey Weinstein. She’s judgmental of white people even if they harbor no ill will towards black people. She’s allowed a Muslim to spread misinformation about jihad. She’s made accusations against people based on nothing and she’s hateful of people simply for having been born in the era they were.
America doesn’t need someone as despicable as Oprah Winfrey in the White House.
