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.

I don’t bother clicking on any of your links anymore….you admit to ignoring links when other people post for you.

The last link I did check out was a farce… publicly discredited as false research.

The old “you are a hypocrite” line, man, you really know how to dull a word! Surely you can expand your vocabulary, hint, try not to use any words that end in ist, ism or phobia.

You missed the GIF on his twitter feed concerning the Golden Globes….
It was quite funny!
A “womanizer” , oh wow! That’s a far cry from being a rapist and sexual harasser… stop comparing avocados to bananas.

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

Yes, I believe she didn’t know. There is no reason to believe otherwise, since not everyone who dealt with him knew.

James Woods did a Weinstein movie – as you post his Twitter – surely a womanizer like Woods had to know.

You are a complete hypocrite.

Ezra, Please stop the auto start video’s, NOW.
To all who agree, COPY PASTE AND POST.

Troll with many names, who knows what would happen if Oprah runs…I certainly don’t think she is a shoo in.
Keep pretending she was in the dark where Weinstein is concerned. I bet you think Hilary has been picture of health too!

Tammie Putinski-Zandbelt,

I have seen all the photos. They don’t remotely mean that she knew, but again – I know that’s the agenda that you hope gets traction to hopefully stop her if she runs for President, because I know you think that she could win and that would be devastating to the Trump tards.

The brain dead, who desire a Movie Star or a Talk Show Host for a President, should be aware that most of these people started out life as insecure children. They overcame their insecurities by the simple ‘act’ of pretending. The Gaffer was an exception, in my opinion, he was also a rarity in his trade. Winfrey is a bad choice! Benny Hill would do better.

So troll, her tongue in his ear means she is just a casual acquaintance of Weinstein?!!
How about doing an image search…you will see lots of photos of Queen O and the object of the worst kept secret in Hollywood…keep telling yourself she didn’t know!

THE OPRAH ,
SHE WHO MUST BE ADORED !

For those that lack intelligence here – not every single person that did business or was associated with Weinstein “KNEW”, but of course that’s what you hope will stop Oprah from running, because I think even you realize that she could win.

Thanks to Ezra Levant and his staff at The Rebel, we don’t have to live in the fantasy world that for want of a better word, the MSM would have us believe is “the news”. We should all be eternally grateful. I know I am.

Excellent commentary David.
The standing ovation and teary eyed response by the masses was really sketchy. Oprah hailed as brave and honest….Wow! The Queen of identity politics certainly never gave Juanita Broaddrick any air time on her show… Bill’s victims and Hilary’s pit bull reaction to them somehow never made it on O’s radar.

The Golden Globe dress code this year reminded me of an A Lister’s funeral…too bad it wasn’t the death of Hollywood hypocrisy!

You certainly hit the nail on the head with that one. Hollywood…the biggest bunch of hypocrites there is!

In Van Morrison’s song Wild Night, one of the lines in the lyrics is, “all the girls walk by dressed up for each other!” I think we can substitute the elite democrats in tinsel town for the girls, and that includes the men that call themselves feminists too. They play to each other, at the expense of the little people below.
