Oprah Winfrey’s given me so much material about her Islamist leanings it filled a very LONG column, prompting me to become the proud owner of www.OprahSucks.com. Not kidding.
But there’s more material.
Today’s episode of “Oprah,” re-run for the THIRD(!) time, is “Going Around the World With Oprah.” The idea is that Oprah will “show” us what life is like for 30-year-old women from around the world. Only, it’s all a bunch of bull.
And predictably, life in almost everywhere else–places like the Muslim Arab world–is much better than here in America (except for Queen Oprah). Cuba is a place where women can average three ex-husbands (this is good?) and have “more rights.” Puh-leeze. No-one has more rights in Cuba. Yes, everyone is equal there–equally persecuted. “We have to get out of our sort of American way of thinking,” National Geographic’s Explorer host Lisa Ling told Oprah, in pushing Castro’s “paradise.” (Gee, why doesn’t she live there?)
Then there’s Kuwait. Oprah says it’s the only democracy in the Middle East, even though (at the time this was shot) women don’t get to vote (they now do–but the vote, for both genders, is meaningless). Huh? Kuwait is an Islamic caliphate. It is ruled by an Emir and a royal family (the Al-Sabahs), not to mention religious clerics.
Wrong, Queen Oprah, the only democracy in the Middle East is ISRAEL!
And, of course, Oprah wouldn’t miss the chance to rip our efforts in Iraq. A Muslim woman who is on Oprah frequently with her phony charity (a charity that denies honor killings are characteristic of Islam) says it’s all our fault that now Iraqi women are hooked on valium. They take it, she says, because of what we did to their country. Actually, Iraqi women have been taking valium since the days of Saddam Hussein, when he wouldn’t allow relatives to have funerals for their relatives he just killed.
Tell the truth, Oprah! For once.
Thanks for your phony baloney “tour” of the world–at least, the world according to Oprah.
