Oprah: Generations ´marinated´ in racism
will need to die out for discrimination
to end across the world

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Attercliffe, 11/17/2013 12:54:35 PM

Oprah Winfrey has said racism is still a problem around the world and the only way for it to end is for generations of racists to die out. In an interview with the BBC to coincide with the release of her latest film The Butler, the chat show host said generations had been ´marinated´ in racism. The 59-year-old added that President Obama was treated with disrespect because of the color of his skin and said she feels fortunate to have been born after segregation ended in the U.S. [Snip] She highlighted an incident in 2009 when Republican congressman Joe Wilson

Interesting how "the chosen" are protected by the lsm--no chance of seeing an article as this in the msm--we needn´t create any problems for the ??? fill in your names.s/o

Oprah, in case you are not aware, let me inform you--Joe Wilson was correct!! Obummer lied, lied, lied and lied, it may be simpler to list the times he spoke the truth!!

You mean like those generations who were "marinated" into watching your show for 20 plus some years and made you wealthier than God Almighty.

A little bit o´news for you, Oprah. Those weren´t all black ladies in your audience.

But most of them were lofo voters, I guess.

This may come as a shock to Oprah but blacks are much more racist than any other race. Her President has done more to foster racism in this country then any prior President.

In order to eliminate racism, we need to eliminate race-baiters. Members of her ethnicity lead the charge.

Oprah and Opama...two peas in the pod. The more a person is given the less that person appreciates it. It is time these people pick a better country. I hope they don´t read Ken Hamblin´s book, "Pick a Better Country" first. That book might reveal to them that there is no better country. Ken Hamblin is a conservative black man who grew up in Harlem and earned his way in the world and given only opportunity. A lesson for all.

I think Oprah’s actually got a good idea there. If a large number of racists suddenly died, the democraps would be out of power for the next 100 years or so. The majority of racists in this country(as admitted by them when they voted 94%(?) for the current occupant of the white house) being democrap voters…

Big 0prah and 0bama do more to stir the "Racial" pot than any two people in history. I do not feel that I am racist, however, two of the most frightening events in my life were being robbed by black people. No white person ever robbed me.

0prah is 100% right on. I´m not going to speculate about around-the-world, but a lot of Leftists in the US of A are going to have to die out for things to get better for blacks hee.

The Democrat Left has had its Racist Jackboot on the necks of blacks for almost as long as I can remember.

I wonder if Big 0prah has watched the black teens playing "Knock Out," where these black thugs prey upon some nonsuspecting white person, and they sucker punch them as hard as they can to see if they can knock them out. Some of these victims have died. All the film showed black youths preying upon white people. The blacks laugh about it and say it is fun. We need to hear from Big 0prah and 0bama on this fun game the black youth are playing and laughing about.

She is missing the point about who was "marinated in racism". She and Sharpton and Jessuh and all the other race-baters who live like barnacles on the BG Industry, will have to die off and - the good news - some like her will leave no tainted progeny. Then those whom those race-baiters marinated will have to die off. It may take a while.

She really doesn´t get it. Not liking Obama has nothing to do with his race. It has everything to do with his Marxism. He chose Communists and Socialists as friends and professors. How do we know? He told us. His good friend in Chicago was a WHITE domestic terrorist that we don´t like either. This has nothing to do with race; it has everything to do with his ideology. Get over it, Oprah. We have.

Generations of racists will have to die, Oprah? So tell me, is that why hundreds of black men murder their fellow blacks in Chicago every year? Is that why such a huge number of violent black men will spend their days in prison, instead of rearing a healthy generation of non-racist black children, by being a loving, hard-working dad they can look up to? Is that why so many black women, especially, eat themselves into morbid obesity, diabetes, hypertension, kidney and heart disease, on junk food, just so they can get out of the way for a less racist society? Honestly, Oprah,your fifteen minutes is SO up. Why don´t you just retire, rest on your laurels, and enjoy your lucre and your $3000 handbags that vanishingly few people of any hue would own? Or you could devote some of that vast wealth to finding ways to train your fellow downtrodden blacks to earn and hold good jobs. Tried to find a good tradesman lately? There is work to be had for those who are willing to do learn and DO. Oh, never mind. I remember now. Whitey sposed to jes fo´k I over the money, so he don´t be called racist. Got it.

Though it is hazardous to say so, much of what is deplored as evil, inexplicable, irrational racism is perfectly rational and grounded in extensive experience. This means that all of those "tainted" by racism could pass away today and that their replacements would soon acquire the very same racist attitudes. Nothing can change until the behavior of many blacks changes. That segment of the black race that is forever getting into trouble with the law, refusing to apply themselves to education, existing on transgenerational welfare rather than earning their livings, talking, acting and dressing like ignorant and antisocial losers is the main incentive for racism. Even though everyone knows this unsavory segment by no means represents all blacks, that there are many perfectly normal, conscientious, law-abiding and successful blacks, the urban lumpenproletariat gets all the attention. Who wouldn´t look down on, avoid, despise and distrust such types? It is not their skin color or their "ethnicity," it is their behavior. This is an exceedingly difficult, perhaps impossible distinction for Leftists to grasp.

The same dynamic applies to Muslims. That all Muslims are not terrorists and enemies of America is widely known. That many, perhaps most of those in America manage to be decent, law-abiding, hard-working and even patriotic citizens is beyond doubt. But the jihadists and criminal elements absorb all the attention. Islamophobia is not a disease. It is a rational distrust of Muslims that one does not know sufficiently well to be certain where their allegiances lie.

When a celebrity says something like that they usually never think of the "unintended " consequences, because there is little doubt that some feral ghetto youth are going to take Winfrey´s comments in a way that says, with a wink and a nod, that one way that they can banish racism is for them to go out and murder old defenseless White people.

When will blacks realize they are more racist than any other race? How could a handful of white sailors force hundreds,and even, thousands of blacks to get aboard their slave ships if they didn´t have help from the blacks in Africa? Also, there are no more racist blacks than Sharpton and Jackson. If racists must die first then there may not be many blacks left, Oprah.

The one modern example: Joe Wilson saying You Lie after Obama claimed no illegal aliens would get coverage under Obamacare. This is actually quite an egregious lie because the increase in coverage will come from Medicaid policies and many illegals receive Medicaid.

Oprah like most other actors is blinded by his mixed race and prejudices of their own against white people in general. They just won´t admit to this prejudice.

If anyone with an open mind and some intelligence dug into his past they would have found he is a Marxist communist and a Muslim. And yes there is such a thing as stated above. There were Nazi Muslims who fought with the Third Reich.

What a cow. She´s still fanning the fires of racism. Does she ever have an original thought or does she merely worship the supreme racist stoker called Barry and follow his every footstep?

So, they have to die off, or be killed off? Knowing how leftists operate, it is more likely the latter than the former.

All the usual suspects like Oprah, Harvey Weinstein and the MSNBC crowd are bleating about various things--´racism´ and ´stupid American people´ who don´t worship at this monster´s feet.

The usual distraction to cover up the failures, the deaths, the manipulation... controlled by who...Soros? Some other puppet master? Notice how coordinated, how well timed. How ValJar...the Iranian cat´s paw.

For Oprah, raped by at least two black men, rewarded by White America for her broadcast crap...to demand that Southern white people die to eliminate racism is disgusting.

I´d like a nice chocolate cheesecake or two fed to her, in the manner that French farmers force feed a goose to swell the liver for pate. But just keep it going.

Tony Blair warns against the
Islamism that he helped foment.
Is this his mea culpa?
Telegraph [UK], by Richard Spencer    Original Article
Posted By: Attercliffe- 4/23/2014 4:59:58 PM     Post Reply
A lot of people hate Tony Blair, and hate him in particular for what he did in the Middle East, and so when he made a speech today on the need for a broad front to combat Islamism they came out with a torrent of abuse. That is a mistake because most of his speech, properly understood, is a giant mea culpa. Since most people think that this mea culpa is necessary, perhaps they should listen. He is also right – and a lot of his critics would probably agree - that both political and militant Islamism are giant challenges

Three pieces of debris washed up off the coast of Western Australia are being investigated to see if they could be wreckage from missing Malaysian flight MH370. One of the objects is believed to be the length of a car with ´distinct rivets´. They were found by someone walking on the beach who notified police. The search coordination centre said today that police secured the material that washed ashore six miles east of Augusta in Western Australia. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is examining photographs to assess whether further investigation is needed and if the material is relevant to Flight

A US economics professor has published the letter he wrote to his daughter´s schoolteacher explaining why he doesn´t want his girl indoctrinated in the green religion. Steven Landsburg, a professor at Rochester, NY, included it as part of a longer essay in which he calls environmentalism a "coercive ideology" targeted specifically at children.

We teach her that people who try to convince her to recycle, or who try to force her to recycle, are intruding on her

Ukraine crisis: US runs the show

Mr Lavrov told Russia Today it was "quite telling" that Kiev had re-launched its anti-terror operation against pro-Russian gunmen during a visit by US Vice-President Joe Biden. Kiev and the West say Moscow commands the gunmen - claims denied by Russia. In the past month, pro-Russian militants have overrun several cities in the eastern Donetsk region. They have occupied public buildings and installed their own officials, in similar tactics to those used to take over the Ukrainian region of Crimea earlier in the year. The US had earlier demanded that Moscow must publicly call for pro-Russian gunmen to lay down their weapons and

The top aide to a congresswoman in her California district sits in jail awaiting sentencing for the drunk-driving hit-and-run death of a 27-year-old woman whose parents are now suing the lawmaker, blaming her for failing to vet the staffer--who had two DUIs in 2006 and 2007, and a 2010 grand theft conviction--before she hired him. Their daughter´s killer, they say, was officially on the job the night of December 6, gladhanding in Rep. Lois Capps´ stead at a private holiday party thrown by a local newspaper. Capps, a 76-year-old Democrat, is named along with the U.S. government in a wrongful

While America’s wealthiest citizens continue to outpace their global peers, the country’s middle class has lost its long held distinction of being the most affluent in the world according to new research. Although economic growth in the United States continues to be as strong as in many other countries--or stronger--only a small percentage of American households are fully benefiting from it, according to the LIS analysis. Based on surveys conducted over the past 35 years, income across the lower--and middle-income tiers of American society has plateaued over that time, while citizens in other advanced countries have received considerably larger rises.

Vice President Joe Biden warned on Tuesday ´it´s time for Russia to stop talking and start acting´ to reduce tension in Ukraine. Standing alongside acting Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk in Kiev, Ukraine, Biden called on Moscow to encourage masked, pro-Russia separatists in eastern Ukraine to vacate illegally occupied government buildings and checkpoints, accept amnesty and ´address their grievances politically.´ ´We have been clear that more proactive behavior by Russia will lead to more costs and greater isolation,´ the Vice President said. Biden said Russia needs to act ´without delay,´ adding, ´We will not allow this to become an open-ended

[Snip] "The terrorists who effectively took the whole Donetsk region hostage have now gone too far," he said. The move came as US Vice-President Joe Biden was visiting Ukraine.

The US and the West accuse Russia of using undercover military to back separatists in eastern Ukraine, where public buildings are occupied in at least

Some will seize on this as proof that Americans are credulous and anti-scientific, but I´d draw the opposite conclusion. The survey--insofar as it can be taken seriously: only just over 1000 people were consulted--suggests how remarkably resilient Americans are in the face of relentless environmental brainwashing. [Snip] But according to this survey, only 33 percent are buying it--while another 37 percent remain thoroughly unconvinced. In the survey, respondents were asked how confident they were in a range of scientific statements. The ones in which they had fullest confidence were: Smoking causes cancer--82 percent extremely/very confident. Inside our cells there is a

Sean Parker, the counter-culture pioneer who founded Napster and made a fortune from Facebook, has been quietly meeting politicians and strategists in Washington DC with a view to donating cash to… the Republican party. [Snip] I think it comes down to what one entrepreneur said to me when Brendan Eich was pushed out of Mozilla: "You can offend the liberals in Silicon Valley, or the libertarians, but you can´t offend both, because everyone is one or the other". That´s the key--there´s a rich vein of libertarianism running through the Silicon Valley tech community that´s infuriated by the increasingly statist Democrats.

Thousands die of thirst
and poor care in NHS
Telegraph [UK], by Padraic Flanagan, Laura Donnelly    Original Article

At least 1,000 hospital patients are dying needlessly each month from dehydration and poor care by doctors and nurses, according to an NHS study. The deaths from acute kidney injury could be prevented by simple steps such as nurses ensuring patients have enough to drink and doctors reviewing their medication, the researchers say. Between 15,000 and 40,000 patients die annually because hospital staff fail to diagnose the treatable kidney problem, a figure that dwarfs the death toll from superbugs like MRSA. The report comes less than a year after the NHS watchdog NICE was forced to issue guidelines on giving patients water

The term "Dark Net" is shorthand to describe the hidden and encrypted part of the internet beyond the reach of normal browsers, accessible only using the anonymous browser Tor. It´s protected by a clever traffic encryption system which makes it very difficult to locate the servers which host sites--called Tor Hidden Services--and the IP addresses of the people the visit them. Tor used to stand for The Onion Router, and so some call this world "Onionland". Anonymity and freedom rule Onionland, not censorship. Even through Tor was originally a US government research project to help protect the anonymity of dissidents

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Jeb Bush said Wednesday he´s "thinking about running for president," in his most direct statement yet about a possible 2016 run. The former Florida governor spoke at a Catholic school benefit in New York Wednesday morning. He previously has said he´ll make a decision on whether to run for president before the end of this year, making clear that he was considering the possibility. But his comments on Wednesday appeared to be more direct. Asked what his "immediate plans" were, he said, according to an attendee: "I´m thinking about running for president." The answer was met with applause and a standing ovation, after

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Today is Earth Day. Fox News’ The Five opened its show with a nearly 15 minute segment titled “Earth Day Hysteria.” The goal appeared to be to prove that scientists’ warnings about climate change are overblown and should be ignored if not outright mocked and co-host Eric Bolling was the ringleader of the effort. But he found an adversary in Bob Beckel, who challenged the status quo by presenting actual data on the rise of CO2 levels from NASA, of all places. But before Beckel got to his chart, Bolling took some time to “praise” President Barack Obama for what

Sotomayor’s 58-page dissent, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, has one theme: Race matters. (Snip) She takes a dig at Chief Justice John Roberts who wrote once, “The way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discrimination on the basis of race.” Sotomayor says: “It is a sentiment out of touch with reality.” Sotomayor says, “Race matters.
