However, when these same pundits deliberately allow Winfrey's sometimes ridiculous comments to go unchallenged, they encourage and advance chumps such as Al Sharpton to sharpen his already razor thin racial comments, knowing full well he will get a pass as well.
According to Breitbart.com,* "In preparation for the release of Oscar-bait film The Butler, Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and director Lee Daniels (Precious) sat down with Parade magazine.
The film chronicles a butler (Whitaker) who works in the White House through seven administrations. Winfrey plays the butler’s wife.
In the interview, Winfrey explained her sadness that so few Americans know about the history of the civil rights movement: “They don’t know diddly-squat. Diddly-squat.”
She then said of the historic use of the n-word, “I always think of the millions of people who heard that as their last word as they were hanging from a tree.”
Yes Miss Winfrey did say "millions of people....who were lynched"....MILLIONS! Her guess-timate was only off by a mere 'couple million,' but when you're concentrating on stirring up discontent among the races, who can concern themselves with such petty errors.
Reminds us of an earlier supposed 'innocent' error; New York Congressman Major Owens, on the floor of the United States House of Representatives declaimed, while keeping a straight face "that slave traders dumped hundreds of millions of slaves overboard of ships to feed them to the sharks.
Using Owens logic, to this day the sharks still swim the slave trade routes looking to eat more, being very selective in their choice of carnivorous delicacies, (by association) strictly black people.
As someone pointed out following this obvious error by the Congressman, "200 million people is almost twice the estimated population of Africa in 1850 (111 million)"
Democrats have this uncanny ability to 'fudge the numbers,' whenever they fit their political agenda.
Who can forget this classic example from 'the queen of quirkiness,' Nancy Pelosi when she gave us this really, really stinky news on the economy.
There are those who believe Oprah Winfrey is no less the race baiter than Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Eric Holder and yes, even her idol Barack Hussein Obama.
As one reader (Northern_home_Southern_soul) at Breitbart so brilliantly admonished Miss Winfrey,
"What about the thousand of children (yes children) being enslaved TODAY in Africa, by fellow Africans? Is she (Winfrey) too stupid to know that the presidents or crime lords of these countries enslave "her people" and use them, some as young as 6, to fight their bloody civil wars?"
This reader asks, "Where is the outrage for slavery today. Forget slavery 200 years ago, why does the "big O"(Oprah) not care about the blacks being killed TODAY in her own hometown of Chicago? Has she ever done a special about fatherless black children who are almost guaranteed to grow up poor and at the mercy of thugs in the streets? What about her concerns for the 'millions' of blacks with HIV? Why does she not care about the REAL suffering of her people? Why does she not care about the "millions" of whites being killed or r a p e d by blacks TODAY all across the USA.
Oprah Winfrey, why do you not care about real issues? Stop it with the New Democratic Southern Strategy, it is just as racist, if not more so."
