Several years ago, after watching the Oprah display her cluelessness about economics during a show about the minimum wage, which of course she advocated raising, I noted that she was the walking the embodiment of what a great country America is. She has no clue about economics, yet she has been able to amass a fortune that is almost larger than God’s, if God had any need for money, which He doesn’t. You get the point.
Once again today she put her radiant ignorance on display by claiming that the Trayvon Martin justifiable homicide is equivalent to the 1955 lynching of Emmet Till. Seriously? Let’s compare the cases. From Newsbusters:
In 1955, Till was a fourteen-year-old boy from Chicago visiting his relatives in Money, Mississippi. He spoke to a 21-year-old white woman named Carolyn Bryant who was the wife of a grocery store owner in the town.
Several nights later, Bryant’s husband Roy and his half-brother J. W. Milam went to Till’s great-uncle’s house, kidnapped Till, drove him to a barn where they proceeded to beat him, gouge out one of his eyes, shoot him in the head, and dispose of his body in the Tallahatchie River with a 70-pound cotton gin fan tied around his neck with barbed wire.
OK. Then there’s Trayvon Martin. Just in case you don’t remember what he looked like.
What a charming young man!
Please go to this post and check out the “Seven Things The ‘News’ Didn’t Tell You (or Your Lo Fo Friends) About Trayvon Martin,” and ask yourself whether you, like me, are DISGUSTED that the Oprah would compare this drug-loving burglar, Trayvon, with an innocent 14 year-old brutally murdered in the Jim Crow South.
The Oprah is probably so stupid and ignorant that she thinks she is paying tribute to Emmett Till, when in reality she is disparaging and denigrating his memory.
It’s sickening, but not the first time that this media-generated celebutard made a fool of herself.
