Is it just me . . . or did you also find it odd that Jeep chose anti-war Oprah Winfrey to voice an overwrought reading about welcoming our troops back to America? It’s strange to see Oprah quoted as saying, “We wait. We hope. We pray. Until you’re home again,” since Oprah attacked our troops and their efforts every step of the way when it mattered. Now suddenly, she’s telling them, “We’re a family. We are a nation.” Whatta phony. Now you know why I call her, “HOprah.” Cha-ching! This is the same “chick” who refused to visit our troops when they were over there. Who needs her “welcome home,” now? What–Hanoi Jane wasn’t available?
The ads for the Super Bowl seem to get worse with each year, whether it was the disgusting, low-class GoDaddy ad featuring Israeli draft-dodger Bar Refaeli, or the Coke ad calling graffiti vandals of public property, “Peace Warriors,” or the other Coke ad, a dhimmi deal in which the Westerners competing in the Coke Chase are creeps, and the ultimate winner is the classy Arab with his camel. The only ad I really liked was the patriotic Paul Harvey ad tribute to the American farmer for Dodge Ram. But the Oprah Jeep ad really bugged me.
Maybe I’m wrong, since the conventional wisdom is that her overly dramatic reading welcoming home our troops was “masterful.” Everyone is gushing over it. But not me. When our troops went to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, Oprah used her daytime talk show to run frequent anti-War shows critical of them, aiding and abetting the enemy.
Yes, in retrospect, it was a bad idea to go to either of these countries–since we never intended on fighting a war and pursuing American interests and, instead, sacrificed American lives to build roads and hand out candy to those who hate us and install Iranian-backed Shi’ites into Iraqi leadership in fantasist Muslim Spring “democratic” elections (in which Iraqi Christian votes were not counted). But those of us who were patriots supported the troops and didn’t provide propaganda for the enemies who were killing and maiming them on a daily basis. Oprah was on the other side. She spoke out against the efforts of our troops and featured far-left activists, like Frank Rich, on her show to speak out against what they were doing. At the same time, Oprah did show after show, preaching to her airheaded viewers about how peaceful Islam is and how Muslims are liberal and liberated in places like Jordan which voted down laws making it illegal for a husband to torture his wife.
When Oprah finally did a few shows on our wounded troops, it was to knock America and the U.S. Armed Forces. She knocked America not only for the injured soldiers, but also to say that America’s troops end up homeless and that female troops end up raped by male troops. Hmmm . . . and her Prez is so gung-ho on sending women into combat. Imagine what will happen when Muslims we are fighting (or pretending to fight) get ahold of them. Then, they actually will be raped, and worse. One of the shows she did–which could have been a joint venture of Bin Laden Studios and Harpo Studios (Oprah’s production company)–was entitled: “AMERICAN WAR HEROES: WHY ARE THESE WOMEN NOW HOMELESS?”
So, I find it rather despicable that Chrysler paid Oprah a pretty penny to read this “welcome back home, troops”/”America will be whole again” baloney that she doesn’t mean. She wasn’t good to our brave members of the U.S. Armed Forces when they were away from home, and she has no business pretending she’s their biggest cheerleader and a patriot, now.
In the script she reads, Oprah tells our troops that there will be a place for them at home, in jobs, and so on. But how many troops who fought in Iraq or Afghanistan do you think Oprah has hired, will hire? I’d bet money that it’s very few to none.
And regardless of how many U.S. veterans–against whom she spoke out when they needed her support–she now hires, she’s just a fraud and a hypocrite.
When the Bush administration asked Oprah to help, a la the patriotic stars of the 1940s who helped our war efforts, and to visit the troops overseas and show Muslims how an American woman has opportunities and succeeds, Oprah declined. She wanted nothing to do with that.
So, now, when our troops continue to return home, Chrysler Jeep should have picked someone else who did visit the troops and did support their efforts to do the voice-over on their ad.
That Oprah now welcomes home our troops on whom she spit while they died and lost limbs in service to America is nothing less than hypocritical, fraudulent . . . and absolutely disgusting.
We may be “whole again,” someday. But that will only be when anti-American fakers like Oprah have been removed from the national stage of influence, fame, fortune, and non-stop unearned adulation.
