Oprah: Many Americans hate Obama because he’s black

posted at 1:21 pm on November 15, 2013 by Bruce McQuain

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”.

The problem is the race card has been so overplayed in the past that it simply has little if any sting left.  It has been used so often and so ineptly for so long that people (other than liberals perhaps) simply don’t take it seriously anymore.  It is now considered the last bastion of a person who has no other argument.  It is deployed only to try to shut people up.

And that’s especially true in instances like this where the reasons for the Obama failure are so obvious to so many and just as obviously have nothing to do with his race.  In fact, they’re glaringly obvious. If there is contempt being shown against Barack Obama it may be because he’s arrogant, self-centered, blame-shifting, condescending, aloof, inept, incompetent and tells fibs.

Why it would matter what color he is after all that remains a mystery.

Hey Del, nice reference yesterday to Jerry and the Pacemakers.

I liked Ferry across the Mercy, the song, which I believe was
also a movie, right??

ToddPA on November 15, 2013 at 3:49 PM

Yes, the film of the same name came out in 1965. Sad to say it’s never been released on video, though you can find a clip of the trailer on youtube.

Gerry Marsden is still huge in Britain, especially among the British football mobs, for his epic song “You’ll Never Walk Alone”; there still is a “Pacemakers” touring group but he’s not a part of it. Back in the day, Gerry and the Pacemakers was the second-ever band signed by manager Brian Epstein. Those other guys were the first.

Del Dolemonte on November 15, 2013 at 4:02 PM

Five million Americans probably hate Barack Obama because he caused them to lose their health insurance.

Other Americans hate Barack Obama because he caused them to lose their jobs.

Other Americans hate Barack Obama because he raised their taxes.

But a lot of people would like him if he left us alone and kept his hands out of our wallets.

So c’mon, Brother Barry, we’ll all love ya if ya just resign and shoot hoops and play golf in Chi-town, and bask your ears in the wisdom of Jeremiah Wright.

Steve Z on November 15, 2013 at 4:05 PM

If 3% of health plans is a catastrophic number, is it so hard to believe that Winfrey is accurate when she says “many Americans” hate Obama because he is black? Or is the new conservative mantra that there are no racist white people anywhere?

low-information perfesser on November 15, 2013 at 2:15 PM

The word “many” is a non-specific term that is open to interpretation.

Is it asking too much for Ms Winfrey to try nailing down a percentage, that she believes accurately represents the number of “black haters”?

listens2glenn on November 15, 2013 at 3:53 PM

Strangely, more black people think black people than white are racist: Among black Americans, 31% think most blacks are racist, while 24% consider most whites racist and 15% view most Hispanics that way.

stenwin77 on November 15, 2013 at 4:24 PM

I’m so tired of blacks using the racist excuse to cover for black crimes. Liberal idiots can’t explain why just about any conservative would embrace Clarence Thomas, Herman Cain, JC Watts, Walter Williams, Mychal Massie, Thomas Sowell and many other black conservatives for President. Those people they instead call Uncle Toms. Ironically, if conservatives have a problem with any black, because their black, it’s due to the racist vitriol they spew at whites. People like Oprah and Sharpton are the genuine racists.

cajunpatriot on November 15, 2013 at 4:27 PM

It always amazes me how rich black celebrities like Oprah Winfrey appear to believe “everybody” is racist, when if “everybody” actually was racist, these same people wouldn’t be rich black celebrities.

It’s pretty much white women (Oprah’s main demographic) who made her wealthy and famous. How “racist” of them, right? /sarc

I would suggest that Ms. Winfrey start exercising her brain
rather than her a$$. She has been coming out with such dumb
statements.

As far as her success goes, she was mentored by a white male and
her coffers filled from white female viewers who bought into her
“I care about everyone so much” faux generosity and humanity.

Amjean on November 15, 2013 at 4:38 PM

He’s only half black but he’s one hundred percent anti-American. The second part is why people don’t like him. Really not hard to understand unless you are a race baiter trying to alienate the majority of white women who support and paid your sorry butt.

RDE2010 on November 15, 2013 at 4:38 PM

Also, why is it ok for her to say things like this and keep her job when Paula Dean had to lose it all over something that happened 20 years ago? Oh, I think we know why.

RDE2010 on November 15, 2013 at 4:41 PM

Who cares if Obama is black or white? Has anyone noticed his hands? >>>bigbeachbird sighs and faints dead away<<<

bigbeachbird on November 15, 2013 at 4:46 PM

I knew that Oprah Winfrey was an idiot when, many years ago, she was hyping one of her upcoming programs along the following lines: “We’re going to feature people who have been divorced at least six times telling you how to keep your marriage together!”

Nothing that I have seen, heard, or learned about her since then has given me any reason to ever consider changing my initial impression of her.

Spurius Ligustinus on November 15, 2013 at 5:01 PM

Oprah only will believe that opposition to her Cult Leader is racist. There is no other possible explanation for why people are against his policies.

That in and of itself is racist stereotyping. Isn’t that right, libfreeordie?

Del Dolemonte on November 15, 2013 at 5:22 PM

I’d like to hear the case that there’s racism against Obama, all laid out, with simplicity, clarity, footnotes. I’m open to it. I doubt it though. I believe it’s rooted in ignorance, stupidity, hate, tribalism, sickness. Raw emotion. Make the case, but I don’t believe there is a case.

What the case laid out would show is not racism towards Obama, but the sickness inside of those who make the claim.

In my opinion, Oprah has ruined her legacy with these false charges of racism.

Paul-Cincy on November 15, 2013 at 5:28 PM

She’ll lose plenty of support because of this. Not as much as she should, though. This kind of race-baiting, the false charges of racism, that’s the political evil of our time. And it’s often so hard to see the evil of the current day, as people are fighting the last war, against racial discrimination. That war’s over. Open your eyes to what’s going on today. Paula Deen, probably never hurt a black person in her life.

Paul-Cincy on November 15, 2013 at 5:34 PM

History has shown that the last bastion of any government administration that is without any actual plan to ease suffering is racism in one form or another. It is the only effective means of moving the spotlight off of their failures to the supposed (and stereotypical) evils within the target group.

Truth is the first casualty and the sole goal is to keep themselves in power . . . at any price.

onlineanalyst on November 15, 2013 at 5:47 PM

Conservatives said back in 2008 that Obama didn’t have a lick of management experience to become POTUS. They were mocked by the left and their allies in the press. Somehow being a community agitator was more than sufficient. Now “the chickens are coming home to roost”, as stated by Rev. Wright. Is that racist? When you are unable to defend the positions of your hero, you have to play the race card. There is no other way to defend him. This tactic is getting thin though. Even an uninformed voter can tell that a LIE is a LIE.

Remember the old series on Fox, “Married…With Children”? It ran for 11 seasons, so it had a definite following.

Here’s how wiki describes one of the central characters:

Peggy Bundy (Katey Sagal)—Al’s wife who is always on his case about money and refuses to clean or cook. She is a lazy, big-haired redhead who spends most of her time parked in front of the TV watching talk shows such as Oprah

The key word: LAZY.

That’s actually a slam on the Peggy character. She at least knew what she wanted out of life and did it. If it meant being parked in front of the TV eating bon bons, then that was that. At least she was honest.

Unlike the dimwits who would go to Oprah for validation/enabling of their feelings and actions. It’s like the biggest idiot leading all the smaller idiots off the cliff.

So “everyone” hates Obama because he is black?

Oprah is also black.

So “everybody” must hate Oprah.

(Logic is hard. Even very basic logic)

I don’t hate him; I’m not willing to give him that much of my energy. I hate what he and his minions and those who are behind him are trying to do to my country. That has nothing to do with his skin color. He could be green or purple and I would still hate what they are doing.

“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.”

I’m just going to come out and say it. Consider the possibility Oprah isn’t happy being black, but instead of realizing that, she projects that onto others.

What she says:
“People don’t like me because I’m black”
What she means:
“I don’t like me because I’m black”

The entire process is completely unconscious on her part. It’s a defense mechanism — psychological projection, which is always completely unconscious. She has no idea she’s doing it. Which is fine. The problem is, in the political realm, and the interpersonal realm, this is toxic, dangerous, damaging. All based on a psychological error.

I’m fine with people making psychological errors — I make plenty of them myself. People will be who they are. We all have blind spots, misunderstandings about life. This one hurts a lot of other people though. That’s my problem with it. If you’re going to be neurotic, fine, just don’t be going around hurting others so deeply because of it.

Open The Door on November 16, 2013 at 1:01 PM

Here’s what some people are thinking, Opie, maybe even many people.

This was the opportunity. This was the moment black Americans had relished, the chance for a mixed race citizen (black enough to qualify for the title) to be elected to the Office of President of the United States. And you blew it. The message?

You should have picked a better candidate.

Because what you have done, by putting this charlatan into the highest office in the world, armed with all gab and no game, is to set your cause back to an extent yet incalculable.

IndieDogg on November 16, 2013 at 1:46 PM

Be honest now. Doesn’t Oprah look like the portly warden of a woman’s prison? The kind who beats prisoners senseless with a rubber truncheon and says “Time passes so quickly when you’re having a good time.”

Oprah is a malicious, untalented mountebank who’s ridden to billionaire status on the backs of guilt-ridden white liberals who also elected that other black mountebank, Obama, president. Go to hell you fat POS.

thejackal on November 16, 2013 at 2:41 PM

An interesting series of observations from someone on another board. This about sums it up.

Is there anyone anywhere that can come to the conclusion that Obama is a bad leader, planner, President and not be called a hater, racist or whatever?

People had movies of Bush getting assassinated and you didn’t have Oprah coming out all offended about that or any other President before she decided to activate on the first part-black President.

To me it is obvious that Oprah went for Obama because of race based on her lack of EVER getting involved before for a candidate. Is Oprah a racist for only coming out for the first black guy? Does she have to think the only reason people have bad opinions of the President’s actions and jobs has to be race?

Why can’t we make out own independent conclusions of what this President is doing and their effects on the people and the world?

Why should Obama become the first President you can’t be critical of?

He can have supporters and those who want him impeached like any other person, or does Oprah feel/think that he being part black makes him exempt from the bad and only has the right to the benefits of all things? If so, what is Oprah?

Del Dolemonte on November 16, 2013 at 2:46 PM

First she goes after a sales lady, now she’s going after anyone who is against Obozo ruining our country.

Oprah is either an IDIOT, a ‘RACE-BAITOR’, like Obama – a LIAR, or all of the above.

Obama’s promises that Obamacare would not cost a dime, would pay for itself, and would reduce he deficit amounts to Obama claiming Oprah is an intelligent, skinny, white woman. Oprah’s claim that opposition to Obama’s scandals & massive failures is like Oprah claiming coal miners hate the ‘black lung’ medical condition only because of the word ‘black’.

It seems to be part of their DNA that blacks can’t go a minute without thinking that something or someone is racist. It is who they are because they are raised that way.

HiJack on November 16, 2013 at 6:43 PM

Nobody’s saying Oprah is stupid, but we are all thinking it.

Isn’t he half black? Why only identify with 1/2 of your racial makup and totally discount and ignore your other half?

Maybe there are double standards and special treatment and advantages to identify yourself as black?

Man, it must be hard to be a HA troll these days!

Here, kitty kitty?

I hate obama because he is stupid and in power. I hate oprah because she is stupid, has some power, and is black.

So many racists, so little time.

Dhuka on November 17, 2013 at 1:17 AM

This woman is low class, race-baiting trash.

Never could stand her.

Ding, ding

Oh, you poor oppressed race warrior billionaire.
Go buy a purse.

S. D. on November 17, 2013 at 10:21 AM

Sure, Oprah, and that’s why they hate your new tv channel too.

Is that still on, BTW?

PattyJ on November 17, 2013 at 11:14 AM

So all that hate and vitriol for George Bush was because he’s secretly black? WHO KNEW

evergreen on November 17, 2013 at 1:31 PM

Obama has done wonders with improving race relations………………bullsh@t.

SC.Charlie on November 17, 2013 at 4:51 PM

Hey BBC! How many black PMs have you had?

Oprah is a disgusting fat body and that’s why I hate her.

See? I ain’t no racist!

Sherman1864 on November 18, 2013 at 1:14 AM

Oprah: Many Americans hate Obama because he’s black

Oprah: That’s what many people are thinking…

First off, from a point of argument alone — making a point or stating a hypothesis for consideration — those statements alone by Oprah are ludicrous and prove her to be engaged in “Straw Man” hypothosizing: “everyone thinks this” and “many people think this” and so forth, it’s like claiming you’re Napolean and you dare someone to prove you wrong. It can’t be proven, hasn’t been proven and isn’t at all very rationally likely to ever be proven, it’s a case of ONE mind perceiving an opinion and then projecting it in gargantuan dimensions quite egotistically onto “everyone”.

So Oprah’s a dingbat with those egotistical generalities already and that’s even before her point of accusing “everyone” or “Americans” criticising Obama as being motivated by “racism.”

What Oprah is saying is: “if he’s a failure as a President, it’s wrong to name him as a failure because he’s Black, and if you do, you’re the problem, not him, not is failure.”

Oprah’s the actual racist there. Also an egotistical dingbat.

Lourdes on November 18, 2013 at 4:43 AM

And let’s all remember how it was that Barack Obama was elected as “the Black President” “because he’s Black” from the very lips of most of his voters.

Democrats are the actual racists among us, always have been, apparently still are.

Lourdes on November 18, 2013 at 4:45 AM

In the essence of this ongoing baseless accusation of others as “racist” when they criticize Obama is this:

Blacks who are/were motivated by race (theirs), racial “pride,” racialist views of our nation, the world, human beings, they voted for Obama because of his race. It was racism voting by racism.

So now the failed result on specific, provable, identifiable deeds, character, bad ethics and more. The majority of those who were/are motivated by race to vote for and support Obama despite these obvious failures can’t handle the reality that their outlook is failed: their failed outlook produced failed actions that produced a failed Presidency based on failed ethics.

“No dog eaters or Irish” should still be posted at bars and borders.

BL@KBIRD on November 18, 2013 at 10:07 AM

“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”

Ironic if you apply it to the epic disrespect suffered by P.BO’s predecessor at the hands of people like her. So if we apply Ms. Winfrey’s questionable logic then we get that GW Bush was disrespected…because he was white.

And Ms. Winfrey’s wealth – accummulated because, by her logic, she’s black (since she is not disrespected by “everyone”).

So what is it Oprah – P.BO is disrespected because he’s black or you are successful because you are black.

Idiot.
