What does Oprah represent? Fake science, hucksters and greed

Quote:
On her eponymous daytime talk show — which ran from 1986 to 2011 — Winfrey routinely endorsed fake science and spiritual hucksters. She cast herself as America’s foremost secular deity and seems to still believe it. Logic and reason don’t guide Oprah Winfrey; feelings and money do.

In 2006, Winfrey endorsed one of the most anti-intellectual products of the decade: a book and video called “The Secret,” which promises that anyone can have anything they want as long as they visualize it. Conversely, if tragedy or poverty befall you, it’s your fault. “The Secret” went on to sell 20 million copies internationally.

“I’m thrilled for the success of ‘The Secret,’ ” Winfrey told Larry King in 2007. “I think that the message needs to go further . . . it is very true that the way you think creates reality for yourself.”

That same year, a woman named Kim Tinkham appeared on Winfrey’s show. She had been diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer but had seen the episode touting “The Secret,” and decided to forgo chemo in favor of positive thinking. While Winfrey encouraged her to consider Western medicine as well, Tinkham declined.

She died in 2010.

It's not what she represents but, rather, who.
  It's the minorities and the Peggy Bundy's of the world.  She will receive few white men votes.  Not because she's black or a woman, though that's how it will be portrayed in the MSM.  But because she's out of touch.
  

Cordially,
David "The Mahdo One" Nelson

She's a shill. Always has been. But she's a brilliant shill.

Do not worry.  I JUST read that Oprah is ineligible to be our President.  Yep, she's a felon.  She was recently caught at an airport with 40 lbs. of crack up her skirt.

Oprah Winfrey represents that group of Americans who think with their emotions and feelings. Through her public format, Winfrey’s been able to harvest much of that low hanging fruit that’s been ripening in America for the last few decades. And the fact that Winfrey happens to be black,  plays well with the upper middle class folks - Shelby Steele has dubbed them ‘the white guilt crowd’ - as their contribution to ‘race relations.’

I think we better hope she decides against running.  She has the popular vote easily and there are plenty of stupid whites (yes, I'm white) with misplaced guilt, and women of all races that will vote for her only because of her gender/race.

I believe she is a total phony but she is extremely well-liked.

Orca is “Extremely well liked” where?

"Within the pages of the Bible are the answers to all the problems men face.
"Facts are stubborn things.
"[Conservatives] believe everyday is the Fourth of July, but the democrats believe everyday is April 15th.
"We cannot play innocents abroad in a world that is not innocent.
"People who are pro abortion are already born.
"The problem with liberals is not that they are ignorant, the problem is they know so much that is not so.
