HOprah Watch: The Ultimate in Ms. Thang’s Hubris – Oprah Disses Black Women

By Debbie Schlussel
Today’s episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show” is the epitome of why I can’t stand this woman. And why I can’t understand why so many women–particularly Black women–idolize this phony. She does not care about you, no matter how much you want to make it so.
It’s bad enough that she’s doing a show about her doing a show–it’s about the making of her “Oprah’s Favorite Things” show in Macon, Georgia. But here’s why Ms. Thang chose Macon: it has the highest percentage of television sets–45% of them–tuned to the Oprah show when the show airs, according to Neilsen ratings. That tells me right there that almost half the city failed the national IQ test and is brain-addled.

Worse, is that Oprah decided to play a little game on the mostly poor, mostly Black people of Macon. She knocked on doors giving away tickets to the Favorite Things show, on which Oprah gives out thousands of dollars worth of luxurious gifts to each audience member. But there was a catch: you had to be watching the Oprah show when she came to your house, or no tix. Oh, and the tickets were gold and labeled “Golden Ticket,” like she’s some real-life Willy Wonka. Puh-leeze. (She does have a disproportionate number of Augustus Gloops and Veruca Salts watching her show and reading her magazine, though.)
Oprah went to one elderly Black woman’s house. The woman cried–like it was the “Second Coming.” But Oprah asked her if she was watching “Oprah.” When the woman said she hadn’t yet turned on the TV, Oprah said buh-bye. “I was giving out tix to my show. But I can’t give you one because you weren’t watching me. Gotta go.” In multiple versions of those words, that’s how she dissed–on camera–many elderly, poor, and alone Black women with tears in their eyes . . . on camera. These are women who idolize this woman. But over and over again, that was the response from Oprah to lots of these women, taunting them and then dashing their hopes. Let’s hear it for Black empowerment. Watch me toy with the “little people.”

Hey, Oprah, You’re No Willy Wonka

Then, Oprah’s nasty teasing increased a notch. Oprah went to a single mother’s house. She asked, “Are you watching Oprah?” “No, I’m taking care of my children,” was the response. Oprah: “Oh, I’m sorry. You’re not watchin’ my show. So I can’t give you a ticket.”
Hmmm, take care of your kids or watch Oprah’s mindless garbage. This woman had her priorities straight, so Oprah kicked her to the curb. What a bitch. Yes, Oprah, single mothers should watch your show and neglect their kids. It’s all about Oprah.
Nauseating. This is the woman who constantly whines over the treatment of Black women and single mothers in our society. But, when it comes down to it, she really doesn’t give a damn about them. Worse, she uses them as fodder for easy laughs on her show. A total phony–not news to me or readers of this site.
Then, there were the two women–a middle-aged woman and her elderly mother. Only the daughter was watching, so Oprah told her, “I’m giving you ONE ticket, ‘cuz you were watching my show.”
Really, I can’t think of a greater feat of self-conceit than what Oprah did to her fans in Macon, Georgia–many of whom would certainly have appreciated the gifts from the “Favorite Things” show more than a self-ingratiating billionaire egomaniac.
Well, if Oprah carved her head onto Mount Rushmore, maybe that would exceed this. Maybe.
Me. Me. Me. My Show. My Show. My Show. I don’t call her “HRHSBoTU” (Her Royal Highness Supreme Being of the Universe) for nothing.

Orpah the whale is packing on the pounds! She has enough money to hire a minder to intercept the food as it heads towards her mouth. Why doesn’t she do it?
It’s so depressing that there are actually people out there who watch this Orpah crap. I find her unbearable. I guess you cannot underestimate the stupidity of the American people.

Most of the people in the United States are idiots and they shouldn’t be allowed to vote.

EXACTLY! Don’t forget: Her highness has endorsed HObama for prez. If he gets any votes, you know who to blame. Women too lazy to reason for themselves turn to this bitch for guidence. It’s just sad…

Its too bad the average Hopra watcher is dumber than a box of rocks but thats her demographic. And they will continue watching. Even if they saw her humiliate a few “little people”. They are like moonies.

I think HOprah needs to star in the new James Bond film as the Megolomaniac villian bent on world domination. I know its already been done before but she would play this part and wouldnt really have to act.

By the way Debbie, you need to update your oprahsucks website. Looks to me like the last column that was written for it was July 29th 2005.

Debbie, I like Oprah as long as she is campaigning for Osama. It will only hurt Hillary in the long run, and may pave the way for another Republican victory. She could urinate on these women and they’d still watch her.

Damn, that is friggin cold.

Looks like Anon1 is right: Hell, she could take a dump on their living room floor, and they’d probably be in tears (of utter joy) as they cleaned it up and put it in the freezer to keep forever.
What a self-absorbed bitch! All of her “kicks in the stomach” were bad, but the one where she dissed the single mom who admitted that she was actually taking care of her children rather than watching the “HOprah Show,” was the most sickening of the lot. Pathetic; and even more pathetic are the simpletons who waste the precious hour a day it takes to watch her.
Read a book (though not one recommended by the HOprah)! Go outside and walk a few miles! Make love to your husband if he’s home! Anything — anything but HOprah!

What is it about “front’n” that white people just can’t fathom. “put’n out that image.” What makes a black punk shoot another black for a pair of addida’s. You people got too start thinking man. To you “front’n” is some kind of game and word in their music like it aint real. But front’n is their way. Your being fleeced across the board by their fony front’n of what “they” project. Politics, crimes against whitey, subsidies etc.. You call americans stupid for watching her. You voted for politicians to make law against yourself for them to use and get you fired. You stupid. She’s strut’n get’n paid by white females. Talk about her two faced garbage all you want but until you quit voting for apeasement and your self rightiousness of firing other white people over the lies of their front’n…You waste your breathe.

Thank you Debbie. Thank you, thank you, thank you – a million times over. It is so wonderfully refreshing to read someone who has the guts to stand up to this phony known as Oprah Winfrey. There are so many things I do not like about her and her out of control ego.
It seems as if everyone in the media though is scared to death of her. One commentator on a cable news outlet even made the comment, “who doesn’t love Oprah? and if you happen not to, mercy upon your soul..” This was reference to the fact that if anyone dare attempts to say anything negative about her then they will have to suffer the wrath of her “legion of lemmings”.
I, for the life of me, cannot comprehend why everyone loves this woman so much and treats her like a deity. I mean that literally. I saw a local newscast where a woman just started sobbing uncontrollably talking about how Oprah cared for her and she was a goddess among people. A goddess. She hosts a talk show and produces a self-absorbed magazine. That’s it. Yet, so many appoint her as their “spiritual leader”, now there is something that makes me weep.
And I HATE the fact that you are never allowed to ever say or post anything negative about her anywhere without being lashed out at as a racist. So what she’s black? Is that supposed to mean she’s immune to criticism.
Kudos to you Debbie for speaking out and letting the world know the “real” Oprah Winfrey!

How dare you criticize our dear Oprah, omnipotent and all-knowing. Obviously, this is just one more lie – smear campaign against darling, brilliant and caring Oprah, savior to us all. ( Oh……, Osama Hussein Obama’s gettin’ my vote, you bet!)….
Gotta go, it’s time for me to pray before my Oprah Alter, all decorated by approved products that our beloved Oprah tells me to buy.
