Oprah: Many Americans hate Obama because he’s black
Hot Air ^ | 15 Nov 2013 | BRUCE MCQUAIN

Posted on 11/15/2013 4:39:36 PM PST by mandaladon

The tattered race-card is once again deployed because Americans are criticizing their President and he happens to be black. This time it was waved around by Oprah Winfrey while in the UK shilling for her new film:

Oprah Winfrey has been a prominent supporter of Barack Obama. She thinks that both he and the Office of President have been treated with contempt because of the colour of his skin.

“There’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases and maybe even many cases because he’s African American. There’s no question about that and it’s the kind of thing nobody ever says but everybody’s thinking it.”

“Everybody” … got that? ”Everybody” is thinking it.

No one could be basing their conclusion about him on the apparent fact that he’s an incompetent who happens to be black. No one could be thinking that his political agenda defines him and they oppose it. No one could possibly be opposed to him because his actions have directly effected their lives in a negative way (see ObamaCare), could they?

No all “everybody” ever thinks about is how black he is and how badly they hate him for that (never mind the cognitive dissonance that must exist in order to ignore his election and re-election and reach this conclusion).

This is what normally happens when one personally invests in a politician and has to find a way to excuse their miserable failure. Winfrey put a lot of personal capital on the line for Obama and essentially understands he’s failing but refuses to see the real reasons for why that’s happening. Instead she turns to the old and dependable habit of crying “race"

This coming from the woman who attended Barack Obama’s and Jeremiah Wright’s “I hate white people” church. Tossing stones from her glass penthouse, that is all she is doing.

He’s also stupid and arrogant. But I guess that’s irrelevant if he’s black.

I think she sees that the black power structure pushed by Obama is starting to crumble, and the results will not be good for the race pimps and others.

I think this is all because Obama is black. Affirmative action got him every job he has ever had. Holding up the race card meant he was never accountable for his actions.

And now as President we are seeing the unintended consequences of affirmative action. None f this would have happened if he was white.

Granted we would probably be talking about Hillary, but again, her incompetence would have been because she was never held accountable.

The Democrats pushed a stupid, ugly white guy in 2000 and lost. They pushed a stupid, ugly white guy in 2004 and lost. So, they got a pretty black man to run in 2008 and succeeded.

What's funny is that Oprah's audience is suburban, middle-to-upper class, WHITE elites. Sure, she has black supporters but they are in the elite as well.

In fact, black entertainers have denounced Oprah because she wouldn't put them on her show or hype their projects. This is all about getting her ghetto pass back, and in the process, she's going to hemorrhage more of her audience and lose all credibility.

This is her Rosie O'Donnell moment. Remember when Rosie was just a mainstream, funny talk show host until she went Postal on poor old Tom Selleck over gun control?

Obama is black. Gee i just thought he had a never fading tan. Come now Obama is white too. That ‘s right he is a mulatto. opps now i sound like a racist and someone from down south whom the master slept with a slave and the offspring born was half white and half black.

actually i do not like Obama not because of his skin color. I loathe him because his politics and ideology has nothing to do with American values

Oprah is a real disappointment to me. My mom used to watch her show a lot. So, I would occasionally hear her program in the background while I was doing homework or stuff like that. Oprah seemed like a nice woman. She was very empathetic towards people, mostly the middle age white women who comprised most of her audience. She would hug them and cry along with them when they told her of their daily struggles. What bothers me the most about her is that she is a complete sham. The whole time she is making nice with the audience she is attending her hateful church or nursing her grudge against the same people. She should be ashamed of herself and apologize for her bigotry.

Well, I’m glad O set me straight. I thought I didn’t like him because of his arrogance and “fundamentally changing” the country with his socialist philosophy.

As far as disrespecting the office...no one disrespects it more than The Won himself.

Actually, it is the content of his character that I take issue with - not the color of his skin. It is a pity that such a concept is beyond the understanding of someone as successful as Winfrey.

Okra tried this not too long ago over perceived racism by a lowly store clerk and came across as a whining, ungrateful prima donna.

Sorry Oprah, we wouldn’t like Obamas policies if he were white, either. In fact, I think you don’t think the criticism of Obama is legitimate because it comes mostly from Republicans...which is the real discrimination.

If a white candidate with Obama’s record had run for reelection in 2012, he would have lost in a landslide.

That should have been the case with Obama, but his race actually caused many more people to vote for him than against him.

Of course we conservatives like Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Larry Elder,etc only because they are Oreos....or what you call Uncle Toms.

No, the hate comes from the radical socialist incompetence.
