Why Oprah’s “presidential” Golden Globe speech was Tinseltown fiction

David MenziesMission Specialist

 

Tinseltown outdid itself in the hypocrisy department at the 2018 Golden Globes.

Many hailed the mighty Oprah Winfrey’s speech about bringing an end to harassment and inequality but would it have been too much for her to utter the name “Harvey Weinstein” even at this late juncture?

Apparently so.

“Queen Oprah” as the New York Times likes to call her, or future President Winfrey as NBC News hails her, made an acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Lifetime Achievement Award in which she said that the women of Hollywood became the story of 2017.

The star-studded trained seals in the crowd gave Oprah a standing O on her profound statements but we all know that for decades, Hollywood was rife with casting couch abuse, and no one dared to rock the boat.

For all this talk of bravery and stepping forward to act as agents of change, where was Winfrey’s platform of shows covering issues like sexual harassment in Hollywood?

Instead, there was only radio silence, and plenty of pics of Oprah from the not-so-good-ol’ days dining with, hugging and even kissing Weinstein.

Speaking out against abuse has emerged as the “in” thing to do in Tinseltown, and so Oprah swept in clad in a black designer dress, to deliver a bunch of vapid and vacuous nuggets.

Give me a break already.

Yes, David, well put. They didn’t mention the barter deal of, "she gets the part, he gets . . . " We all love to barter and it seems that some actresses saw nothing off limits. Now we get to listen to their self-righteous complaining, after getting their part. It speaks more to the lack of morality there and David’s comment was pure gold.

During the Golden Globe virtue signaling Awards farce it was discovered that they forgot one thing – the actual victims they were honoring. They weren’t invited. So here we have a group of perverts, pedophiles & those who enabled them wearing pins & trampy black dresses to show their support for the victims they were ignoring. So brave. All that was missing was a standing ovation for child rapist Roman Polanski. Then again, that’s more of an Oscar Awards thing.

James Franco conveniently and oh so coincidentally held a dinner party for his fellow nominated actors just before the Golden Globe Awards ($$$$$+)
Golly, what a nice guy. Interesting how he arranged this just before he was accused of sexual harassment.
Let’s not forget his and Seth Rogen’s role in ticking off the little Rocket Man with their movie on assassinating N. Korea’s leader.

As Andy Neimers noted, Robert DeNono decided to go on another profanity laced nonsensical tirade again seemingly unconcerned that he was making a complete fool of himself. Looks like JAMES CROCKETT may have to clean the goo out of his panties now that his 2020 ticket of Winfrey-DeNiro has been established. Crockett’s crock is overflowing…..with poop. Maybe we will hear from MR. CROCKETT again, in 7 years when Trump is finished cleaning up Dumbo’s MESS.

AL PETERSON….great post (the long one)

Hi LIZA ROSIE… Well said…Happy New Year

Oprah did an interview with Bill Clinton which was a tour through the Clinton’s main residence in 2015. The one that just had the fire. Oprah never reached out to Juanita Braddock in all the years she had her show, as Drew pointed out. She just loves Bill though. Now she is presenting herself as the leader of the newly manufactured women’s movement in Hollywood, which excludes those without the proper calling card, especially Juanita Braddock and Cory Feldman or the others who as children were abused by those who held the power.
Oprah would fit right in, but she would just be another slick democrat at the beck and call of the deep state. I don’t think she would be able to do anything else. I don’t think she will open her life up to the microscope and the fine tooth comb which will undoubtedly reveal tidbits which have the potential, considering some of her friends, to be far more revealing and potentially damaging than anything ever said or done by Donald Trump.

As far as troll trying to be convincing in his denigration of Trump and his accomplishments in his first year, all I can say is, does that expose him for the msm whore he really is or what?

Hollywood has had about 100 years of creating “make believe”… If you think that profound thought could emerge from those ranks then there’s that bridge you should buy… Besides, it’s not the “glitterati” that are “speaking” when they pop up on any stage, it’s the behind the scenes “writers” that are putting each and every word in their mouths… Like foul mouthed Robert Di Niro who tried to wing it on his own within the past 24 hours and made a fool of himself…

Oh, really. On what basis do you come to this conclusion. I guess by not over thinking it. That is a very helpful habit. They both graduated from college. So how do you quantify that she is a million times smarter than him?

Yeah, Thinking is a bad thing. Especially when one can just emote one’s way into office.

James Crockett—I repeat, anybody can be President of the US. I don’t think Aunt Jemima was a slave, she died in1922 as a wealthy woman for the times.

How many slaves do you own?

Al Peterson,

You are overthinking this. Trump and his administration have been a complete shit show. He’s a horrible President, who endlessly lies and he has the mentality of a child.

The goal is to get Trump out of office and someone like Oprah can do that. She is a million times smarter than him, so there’s that and quite frankly, I think she would do a better job with the administration she would pick.

Now I am not saying that I think she would be this great President, but if she can get rid of Trump and do a better job of which I am certain she would do compared to that asshat clown Trump, I would be fine with Oprah being President just to get rid of Trump. If she discovers that she’s in over her head, then we can elect someone else 4 years later, but at least we dodged a bullet by denying Trump a second term.

At this point, people on both sides for that matter – just want ANYONE that can beat Trump and they will take pretty much any person that can generate enough support to beat Trump. Oprah is such a person. To many millions of Americans, that’s all that matters. MAGA is getting rid of Trump.

America is so great, no one would have ever guessed that Aunt Jemima could become President.

David Menzies:
STANDING OVATION!
That was excellent.

Oprah knows everyone’s secrets and sins. That’s what made her show so popular and her a billionaire. Who is she trying to fool.

I actually watched Michael Wolff on ‘The View’ today (my first time to watch more than 5 minutes of that show). How incredibly PATHETIC! These women were eating it up. First time Whoopi Goldberg has ever kept quiet; she couldn’t get enough. McCain’s daughter finally said something and then faded out of the conversation.
PBS actually addressed the Wolff issue better tonight with Matt Schlapp of the American Conservative Union (he and his wife are great; often on EWTN news and Raymond Arroyo) and Chris Buskirk, editor of ‘American Greatness’. Finally some common sense was imparted for the public to hear and Judy Woodruff even appeared to be receptive to what they were saying.

David, this is one of your best commentaries yet. Great analysis of the Leftist mind. Keep up the good work.
commented 2018-01-10 22:33:57 -0500
A telltale nugget from Oprah is when she talks about ‘Your Truth". There is no such thing. Truth is immutable and undemocratic. You don’t get to have your own version. Opinions, on the other hand, are personal and changing. You can have your own opinion but not your own truth.

Even with opinions, just because they are personal and you can have your own does not mean they are equally valid. There are opinions and then there are studied opinions. The latter carry weight but the former do not.

Did you notice how fraught with emotion Oprah’s speech was? It is fine for a Toastmasters but laughably inadequate for a president. So the Leftist millionaire elite and their clapping seals want to make her president because they see this as an adequate foundation for foreign policy?
Always watch for how the leftists play with language and the definitions of words. They are the masters of appealing to emotion in even the smallest of ways to trip up lazy thinkers. They are the masters of sophistry.
Lastly we see the joke that is the MSM. NBC has abandoned any pretence of neutrality by promoting her. This is the same MSM that excoriates The Rebel for not being “real journalism”. That is all I have heard for the local media as well. Oprah for President because what the world needs is another self-absorbed, feel good, speech maker.

TAMMIE PUTINSKI-ZANDBELT don’t even bother responding to these idiot trolls.
I used to advocate for ignoring them, but then I would fall into their trap and respond to their BS. But I am going to follow my own advice and ignore the jerks, it is hard considering the crap that they post. However we all know that they do that just to get us to respond and to get a rise out of us.
No more! Ignore the fools.
