Oprah Decries Americans´ Ignorance
on Civil Rights, Laments ´Millions´
of Blacks Lynched

Breitbart´s Big Hollywood, by Ben Shapiro

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/1/2013 10:49:27 AM

In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine. The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife. In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.” She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last

Maybe she could focus on what is being taught in the schools here and the incompetent union teachers rather than spending millions of dollars for her school in Africa. s/o

Lynchings were ghastly and evil and not to be tolerated. But there were not millions of Black people lynched at all. Most figures I have seen are about 5,000 which is still horrible.

And Oprah, I know plenty about the Civil Rights movement. I am a history buff and have read a lot about it. So there.

Perhaps she should addressed the millions of Blacks that have been and continue to be murdered using medical tools and then flushed down the toilet at the rate of 1,600 per day...those numbers are more shameful and accurate than the ones she cites for lynching...

Oprah is one of the most influential people on earth, so it is troubling that she should be so ignorant. She is only off by three orders of magnitude (a factor of 1000), but who cares, the narrative is spot on for the racial grievance community.

OW is a diva of the dummies, the queen of the easily influenced, a leader of the lofos. Like many other "has beens", she was so yesterday, but she is trying to be relevant today. Much like a faded hollywood star, her time has passed. Most of us really do not care what she has to say.

Oprah is the ignorant one here; yes, the lynchings were ghastly, but no one alive today had anything to do with this. Oprah would do better to spend her money communicating with the black community to clean up their image. Blacks always want to be the victims. Encourage young black men to stay in school, learn to read and write properly, marry the woman who you impregnate, and learn skills so you can get a job and contribute to society, get off welfare. My image of black men is formed by experience; I have been robbed twice by black men, I was assaulted by a black man, and I witnessed a mugging of a white man by black youths. This is the image Oprah, Sharpton, and Jesse need to focus upon. I did not even mention how appalled most of us were about Rachael Jeantel who was both ignorant and arrogant; not a good image at all.

The white slavery of Irish outnumbered the black slavery...but found being on the dole a reprehensible humiliation.

Oprah please address the outrageous black on white violence that exists today...address Channon Chistian and Chris Newsome that was in yesterday´s posting from FrontPage Magazine...and should have been a MUST READ today

No one ever calls them on it, so why should they stop doing it? They lie because they are liars by nature, but I don´t understand why their followers agree to be lied to.

Yeah, and if blacks knew it was the Republican Party that actually was instrumental in passing the civil rights legislation of the 1960´s would that matter? Like LBJ said on tape, "If we pass this, we´ll have the n----rs´ votes for a generation." LBJ was wrong only in that it has been more than a generation that blacks have voted for the dhimmirat plantation overseers.

The Oprahs of the world have little regard for facts. They rely upon their emotions to form their conclusions. The careless use of language and lack of simple intellectual discipline is characteristic of the type. These are not the people to turn to for wisdom or instruction. They have their uses, e.g. entertainment. It is a mistake to take them seriously and a sign of serious trouble in a culture when large numbers of people do so.

Oprah, Oprah, Oprah, what you moss is that most of us were never tuned in to your Big Black Hope still sitting the world´s once power seat with his white communist half denied but dominating. The rest are tuned out and off by the sob sister stories.

I refuse to pander by making a of course this or that was ladaladalada, because some of us have outgrown the racism era. People asked for a chance and then voted in Change--a chance for a socialist to change America. What doesn´t Oprah understand, being self interest focused?

Trained to dislike racism and avid watchers of "The Help", many of us really dislike racists of all colors. MLK dreamt and opened a promise in brotherhood that failed. Feminists promised women big things and what it has produced is the option for women of being sex hustlers to have a man. Intellectuals promised us enlightenment and what they gave us is a bunch of atheists to tromp on our rights. Gays asked for equality in marriage rights but what they want and won´t settle without is power, power to demand accomodation from society.

So with that in mind, what was it Oprah was bemoaning?

The best thing that could happen is for honest people to quit supporting these actors, singers, dancers, politicians, crooks, whatever they do for a living. No longer buy any of their products or watch any of their free TV, Radio, etc that supports their ignorant attitude.

It has been way more than enough for 30 years.

But the government is not the only American power whose motivations need to be rigourously examined.

Then-Sens. Joe Biden and John Kerry were both opposed to Hillary Clinton’s 1993 health-care reform program, according to documents released by the Clinton presidential library. Clinton marked a handwritten “No” beside Biden’s name on Clinton’s list of Capitol Hill lawmakers that she needed to win over for her universal health care law, known as the “Clinton health plan” or “Hillarycare,” to pass. John Kerry, meanwhile, was marked with a “Probably not.” “Hillarycare” ended up dying in the Democratic-controlled Senate in 1994 without coming to a floor vote.

But the French aristocrat and American think tanker have the measure of the federal behemoth in the age of Obama. Writing in 1835, Tocqueville eloquently predicted how it would function, while Crews today supplies in his annual compilation of federal rules and regulations, “10,000 Commandments,” the hard numbers that describe the behemoth´s contemporary reach and costs.

Prominent Washington correspondents are accusing President Obama and his aides of knowingly stretching the truth on issues like the so-called women´s pay gap just to create controversy and keep issues -- and the president -- relevant. Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus kicked off the attack last week when she blasted as “demagoguery” the administration´s tactics during the pay gap debate. “The level of hyperbole -- actually, of demagoguery -- that Democrats have engaged in here is revolting,” she wrote. CBS White House Correspondent Major Garrett then weighed in this week in his National Journal

Fixed indemnity plans, which pay insured customers a set amount towards medical expenses and are often cost-effective relative to more comprehensive health insurance, are popular forms of coverage, and potentially becoming more popular in the wake of Obamacare. Health insurance industry representatives say that fixed indemnity plans have been attracting more interest as many Americans look for a

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

It’s the stuff of Westerns: a showdown on the desert plains, the big bad government against an underdog farmer. Though the story has only grabbed national headlines in the past several days, rancher Cliven Bundy has illegally grazed cattle on the Nevada land surrounding his farm for over 20 years. He hasn’t paid grazing fees since 1993, and refuses to renew the necessary grazing permit.(Snip)Rather than using the avenues and pathways presented to him, Bundy has staunchly declared his own law and allegiances. Unfortunately, reality doesn’t work this way. If only it did—we could rebel for paying stupid taxes, refuse to

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls. The bushy-tailed visitor

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

To "honor the dignity and work of immigrants," Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi helps Bishop Marc Andrus wash the feet of two children Thursday at Saint John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in San Francisco. Pelosi also used the occasion to talk about passing HR15 - bipartisan immigration legislation that her office says would "reduce the deficit by nearly $1 trillion, secure our borders, unite our families, protect our workers and provide an earned pathway to citizenship." The Democratic leader´s ceremony coincides with Pope Francis´ similar ceremony in Rome to mark Holy Week.

Imagine a vendor on the National Mall, selling burgers and dogs, who hasn’t paid his rent in 20 years. He refuses to recognize his landlord, the National Park Service, as a legitimate authority. Every court has ruled against him, and fines have piled up. What’s more, the effluents from his food cart are having a detrimental effect on the spring grass in the capital. Would an armed posse come to his defense, aiming their guns at the park police? Would the lawbreaker get prime airtime on Fox News, breathless updates in the Drudge Report, a sympathetic ear from Tea Party Republicans?

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter — who used her talk show platform in the last presidential election cycle to campaign hard for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney — has taken up the mantra once again, calling on Republicans to give the failed White House bidder another shot in 2016. She made the suggestion during a discussion on Sean Hannity’s radio show while speaking of her new book, “Never Trust a Liberal Over 3-Especially a Republican.” Ms. Coulter also addressed the question of Mr. Romney’s shortcomings by saying that his 2012 loss wasn’t entirely his fault. “I think too much blame, not only in this

The Clintons had a busy night of celebrations after Chelsea announced she and husband Marc Mezvinsky are expecting a baby. Bill joined “House of Cards” star Kevin Spacey at the Revlon Rainforest Fund Benefit Concert at Carnegie Hall Thursday, joking of Spacey’s Machiavellian character, “When I was president people accused me of murder all the time, made a show of investigating. Spacey’s president for 15 minutes and he gets away with murder.” Spacey, who sang during the event with Sting, Stephen Stills and James Taylor, also showed off his Johnny Carson impression, taking a swipe at the coverage of Flight
