Based on Oprah’s comments, I’m a racist too

Last night on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly, we discussed Oprah’s comments on the BBC about criticism of President Obama having a basis in racism. Well, based on that measurement, I guess I must be pretty anti-black as well. Of course, when white Democrat Senator Harry Reid describes Obama as “clean and articulate” and not speaking with a “Negro dialect,” no one on the Left bats an eye.

Just curious, do you think Oprah’s Medal of Freedom Award was deserved or simply a sign of “racial nepotism?”

Well I am so sick of these people screaming that it is racism, the color of the presidents skin has nothing to do with his performance which he has failed miserably at and being more of a dictator instead of a president. As far as Oprah goes she has lost what respect that I had for her by pulling the race card.

I voted for ALAN KEYES for president more times than Hussein & the IRREVERENT Jesse have RUN – COMBINED ! A “proud socialist” from the UK stated that she disagreed with (the Dictator) on – when I told her that her statement was regarded as Racist – she responded with “Rubbish! It’s not racist to disagree with a person.” Of course, I told her that it is in the US under this Regime!

People always resort to name-calling or play the race card when they have no facts to back up what they believe. They can clearly see his failure as a President but refuse to say that it simply is that he doesn’t know how to do the job. So they pull out their race card and as Col. West clearly stated, even Dem’s make racial remarks about the President but nobody bats an eye.

Being a white woman and middle class, I feel in the lower class. Oprah and Obama are in the Elite class. This is still a class societal structure. Oprah has done a lot for women and self esteem. She is enormously successful. No time for the race card. Obama was elected President. History was made. He must live with critics like all great men and not whine about the naysayers. It is not about race.

Rena

I agree with most of what you said, however I feel they both use the race card a lot lately, especially Oprah since Obama has been president. She used to be what I thought was a thoughtful and fair woman, who was trying to end racism in this nation, but now seems to want to promote it again with her latest antics. Goodness and fairness doesn’t make you millions, but having something to fight does, if we all start getting along and this country becomes stable, fair and “perfect” what can you sell?

My eyes are wide open. I am a white RN and the town nearly sold my property for paying taxes 9 months late without telling me, a woman landowner. I had no recourse. The same phenomenon happened post Civil war to emancipated slaves. I have more in common with poor blacks than Oprah.

Scott Bayer

Did you actually think you owned your property? You own nothing and what they did to you is proof of that.

Mary Gerdt

Thanks Scott, I wished I knew that going into this venture. This farm in my husband’s family over a hundred years, 9 months late, Poof* It was a valuable education. Then I found out “You cannot fight city hall”. An attorney I called said they will just lie anyway. Lawyering 201. Better to realize we are all Plebes.

It tends to happen when you don’t pay your taxes. In my state we receive a notice of sale, and, can redeem the property, but, of course it costs twice what it would have if it had been paid on time.

Mary Gerdt
Guest

I was not noticed myself. They told my husband. They said it was his responsibility to tell me they were selling my property. No other property was attempted to be sold as aggressively as ours. This was a personal vendetta. I am a powerless woman landowner. I imagined This is a small piece of what is feels like to be black. I found this has happened all over. Let people fail and take their property. Property ownership is a myth.

Philadelphia didn’t collect property taxes on hundreds of folks for over 20 years. Now the city is broke. IF you were a black woman YOU would qualify for that “affordable housing” the liberals are building in place of the public housing the poor folks tore up, destroyed. They get new homes for free when they support democrats. THIS is why Philly is becoming the new Detroit. Crime is also rampant in Philly. Too many black democrats outnumber the business owners, property tax payers and private sector workers.

Oprah has either changed drastically since supporting a man for president because he’s half black, or she greedily (yes GREED) waited until she was a successful billionaire, loved by TV viewers everywhere IN PART BECAUSE OF HER APPARENT TOLERANCE AND NON-RACIST CHARACTER, to show her own true colors. Well, she has ceased to exist for me.

It’s ashame Obama was elected because of his race, if the American people did their research of him he wouldn’t be president. If the ones that voted this person in are just now seeing what a lying, anti-American he is I hope you’re losing as much as the INFORMED and disillusioned are. Shame on them because America is suffering over THEIR racism.

What does the “medal of Freedom” really mean? Who does more or has given more for our freedom than the military. Then there are thousands who live their life with the sick and poor trying to help them. All the doctors and nurses who give of their time to preform surgery’s so a better life can be had. So many we never hear about. Yesterday was publicity and politics. I wish the BS would stop.

Pres. Obama has set the tone in DC. He goes on daily rants, bullying, targeting half the nation he disagrees with. So folks Obama started the hate. Senator Pelosi calls U.S. citizens “hostage takers”, other democrat politicians have called legal American citizens “terrorists”, “bomb throwers”, “radicals”, “racists”, “fanatics” . You tell ME which side is the hate-mongers and disrespectful citizens. It is the democrats/liberals/socialists in DC (elected officials!!!). BTW: Joe Wilson was RIGHT! Obama is a liar.

I used to love Oprah and watched her show regularly, when she first came on. It was informative and entertaining back then. But, I saw her true colors many years ago. I saw the racism coming through early and stopped watching her. She has progressively gotten worse and since appearing in politics, has gone overboard. I cannot help her demise because I have not purchased her magazine, watched her network, or anything in years, but I think the American people need to rise against her.

What is this thing about Obama being African-American? LtCol. West is African-American. Bill Cosby is African-American. Dr. Tom Sowell is. Millions are. But Obama is half-African, and his ancestors did NOT come to America as slaves and did never work on a plantation. He, unlike the Colonel or the great economist and political author, he did not have to face racism while climbing fast the social ladder. His father was a Kenyan communist who went to the US courtesy of the US taxpayers to study. Little Barry was raised by his mother – but not too long. Then his (white)… Read more »

Oprah bit it a few times when she, falsely, brought race into something-i.e. the shopping experience oversears, and now this. She’s desperately trying to regain something she lost by shooting off at the mouth. Claiming racism at every turn is the new Boy Who Cried Wolf. People aren’t listening to it anymore, or not like they used to do. Sadly, it makes it that more difficult for those who have legitimate racism claims.

But funny how that doesn’t apply to you….Bro.

This makes no sense at all. Just because Col West speaks out against this sort of racism on the part of Oprah and Obama, doesn’t make him “anti black”. For the most part he speaks against what Obama is doing to the black population by setting them back, making them yet slaves to the government by making them so dependent on them they can’t “make decisions on their own, such as health care and jobs and education.

Read my comment below, Charlie. This is exactly what I meant when I said bigotry and racism are born out of fear and ignorance projected through others. You illustrate my point perfectly.

Charlie

Well based on my understanding from the main stream media and fine upstanding people like Oprah Winfrey, you are a racist if you disagree or don’t like a person who is black. Col Allen West is black, therefore, you must be a racist. I am neither ignorant, in fear, or a racist, but none of that matters. I am judged to be all three by people who don’t know me merely by the color of my skin.

Jon Blackburn

That’s a pretty good description of how democrats bait with racism.

ugottabekiddnme

If we put the discussion of racism on the table then maybe we can clear some misconceptions about it. Racism is fear and ignorance of a particular group projected from a position of power. Bigotry is racism projected through misperceptions and rumors, largely. But please don’t act like the term(s) are limited to a particular ethnicity or political element. That is disengenuous and does nothing to clear up the lies

Wrong. Racism is action based on ideology. The perp very likely knows that the action is criminal, but assumes that ideology is the higher cause. Racism, like any other -ism, is a manifestation of arrogance.

PS: I don’t consider the human race to be subdivided into other races. Having traveled the world, I’ve seen that various combinations of traits manifest in vastly different patterns as different cultures have migrated and mixed with other cultures. The result is that every trait that the west considers “racial” finds its way into a population that the west deems to belong to another race, to the point that we have a spectrum of manifestation of traits throughout the human diaspora that go into different directions, forcing any taxonomer to concede that no subraces indeed exist within the race of… Read more »

1.

There are still racists in our country, and probably always will be. There are people whose hatred is directed at race, ethnicity, religion, gender, and a myriad of things.

I agree with Col. West that Obama has set race relations back, I think, 40 years. And, as far as Oprah getting her medal, it is for the same reason she was nominated for an ‘Oscar’. Her popularity and the Hollywood elite wanting to “feel good” about themselves.

I agree with Gary in the fact that Oprah paid for the medal she was given by Obama. She was a major if not the basic contributor to his election. Without her money Obama would not have had the money to run. I agree that she , like most insecure hollywood people , want to be noticed and feel good by wearing outlandish attire, rapping, tattoos, you name it, what ever brings them attention, especially playing the race card to get what ever they want. Im sick to death of the race card and the stupid people who use it.

I guess if oboma can win the peace prize these medals they’re handing out don’t mean a whole hell of a lot any more.And oprah is getting senile in her old age.

I don’t see where Oprah certainly deserves this medal. Sure, she started an all girls school in Africa, but it was riff with corruption. The ONLY reason she got this medal was because she backed Obama with millions of dollars and always spoke up in his defense. In my book, she is just as much a racist as Rev. Sharpton and his fools. I don’t understand why people can’t see the way this country is changing because of this administration and it’s definitely not for the good of the people or country. When you have the Attorney General breaking the… Read more »

My solution is let’s get Allen West in as the 2016 president and put an end to this racism lie.

Republicans might do well to get behind a ticket of
Condeleza Rice and Mike Huckabee. I think Huckabee has the best experience of heading a government, but with Condi being black AND a woman, she might have the best chance. There are several acceptable black and white men, but I think that might be the best combination.

Sorry “acceptable black men AND women”

Well said. Someone like Allen West and or Herman Cain could truly do this country good. Mr. West, to me has the presents and making of a wonderful president, one that has served this country, loves this country and would do an outstanding job of bringing it back together. What a horrible job it is going to be in cleaning up the mess Mr. Obama has made, don’t think I’d want the job. Let’s hope that Mr West will consider running. There are a few others I do like Paul Ryan But do think my first choice would be Mr.… Read more »

Yes and he would be the first truly black president. I wanted to be able to vote for Herman Cain last time around, would love to vote for this guy the next go round.

I lost respect for Oprah when she said a certain segment of the American public just need to “die off” … there’s good/bad in every race/color. No more Oprah for me, too many other talk show hosts to choose from …

I lost respect for Oprah when she pushed a communist like Obama non-stop for President on her show in 2008. I could care less if someone is black, white, green, orange, communists are responsible for 100 million deaths in the past 80 years, 4 times the amount the Nazis killed and people think it’s OK to have someone run for office who supports that kind of political thinking? Are they kidding me? Already peoples lives are on the line because of that. How many people have lost their health insurance already? MILLIONS! Imagine if you are in the midst of… Read more »

I can’t stand this racist bitch. She, like Obama, is a malignant narcissist who likens herself to God Almighty. She didn’t get behind Obama in 2012 because as dumb as she is, even she realizes there can only be one God (at least in her sick twisted mind) She never teaches, she ‘bestows her knowledge’, because, you know, she is so smart and all. Look at the name of her shows ‘Oprah’s Lifeclass’. Read this article – very interesting and terrifying at the same time. http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/09/obama_oprah_and_the_guru_malig_1.html

So one is considered a racist by Oprah because Obama lied and the Senator exposed him of it? I know she is his lapdog, but come on, is she one of the recipient of his bypass for ACA

Oprah supported Ovamit in the 2008 elections, thinking she was going to be part of his inner circle. After the election, Ovamit, probably Moochelle, dropped Oprah like a hot potato,which is why she didn’t support him in 2012 and Ovamitdeath. I couldn’t figure out why all of a sudden in the past 2 weeks she has come out more racist than ever, supporting Obama again. Now we know why. She just doesn’t learn, does she? As soon as she is not needed, she will be dumped again, but I imagine that there was some $$$$$ involved too. Her true racist… Read more »

Never liked her and never watched her show. Yes, she is a racist and if you’re to stupid to know that, then that’s your problem, not mine.

You could have just stopped at “yes, she is a racist.” I don’t understand why it was important for you to add that anyone who didn’t notice she was a racist before these recent events is “too” stupid. Take the high road every now and then, Katie. Seriously.
