That being said, Oprah's success (and Barack the Terrible's) is exactly what makes her recent comments about Barack Obama's travails truly odd and, frankly, racist:
"Probably it's crossed my mind more times than it's crossed your mind," Oprah replied. "...I think that there is a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he is African American. There's no question about that and it's the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody's thinking it."But that's okay, as soon as all the old racists die, it'll all be better:
"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," she said.It's really amazing that a woman whose mouth runs so far ahead of her brain could've achieved the success The Oprah has achieved in her career. How does Opie Dopey think she managed to amass a fortune of $2.7 billion dollars with a television talk show? Here's a news flash for her: It took more than a few of those "older people" she wishes dead to watch her idiotic talk show to make her fabulously wealthy. In a country where Blacks comprise about 15% of the population, she would be considerably poorer if she owed all of her success solely to black folks watching her show. Maybe she'll try to argue that there is inherent racism in the fact that she's not as rich as Alice Walton.
Likewise for Barack Hussein Obama. He hasn't achieved the "success" he's achieved in life without the help of a considerable number of rich white liberals. And those old racist folks Oprah wishes dead are mostly members of the George Wallace, Robert Byrd, J. William Fullbright wing of the Democratic Party. You don't get better than 50% of the popular vote in two presidential elections in a row without getting a whole lot of white folks to vote for you. In other words, ignorance and stupidity know no race.
I remember very clearly a day long ago -- February of 2008 -- when The Oprah packed the house at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa for then lesser-known Barack Obama who was running against Hillary Clinton for the Democrat nomination for president. Those 18,000 people -- the vast majority of them white -- who showed up to see The Oprah and Barry that day, arguably represented a major turning point in the primary race in Iowa. In fact some of us might argue that Barack the Terrible wouldn't have achieved the momentum he needed to overcome the Mrs. Bill Clinton juggernaut without The Oprah's rally in Des Moines -- thousands of White folks chanting "yes we can, yes we can" like the Obamabot Zombies they were. Many of these white folks have lived to regret that day.
There's so much you could say about the richest Black woman in the world who persists in seeing a bigot around every corner but the fact is that The Oprah couldn't have achieved the success she has if racism were as rampant as she apparently thinks it is. Neither could Barack Hussein Obama. And believe it or not Opey Dopey, it's because Barack Obama was raised a communist, grew up to be a leftist community organizer and has dedicated his presidency to dragging the greatest country on the face of the earth against it's will towards socialism that folks of all races oppose Barack Obama, not because of the color of his skin.Barack Hussein Obama is an equal opportunity destroyer and every economic measure says that Americans of all colors are worse off because he is president. Of course Oprah's station in life -- richer than 99.99999999999999999% of Americans of all colors -- tends to insulate her from the devastating economic effects of the presidency of Barack the Terrible and allows her to live comfortably, steeped in her leftist ignorance.
