and the anti vax/autism etc bullshit

she was facebook fake news before facebook


Collegenoob t1_iv0wu14 wrote

Well she was just progressive without back checking. She brought a lot of controversial information to the public. Heck I didn't realize it till I started rewatching fresh prince and how they cited her for all the gay/trans publicity. As a kid all I knew about her was "You get a free car!"

I definitely wish she had done things better but I want to be open minded about her intentions.

I dont think my mother would have been as progressive as she is if she didn't watch her show. But I've also had to teach my mother about mindlessly going into fad deits and choosing alternative medicine over actual medicine. So its been a fun up and down.


hobbykitjr t1_iv0y9dn wrote

when you have a big soap box, you have a big responsibility to vet your info.

(Just like when Dr OZ submitted a terrible research paper and was banned for 2 years!)

I remember my mom freaking out over whatever the latest episode was about... e.g. an unsafe playground and then i wasn't allowed on playgrounds.


OhioJeeper t1_iv11olg wrote

Or margarine being one molecule away from plastic, I can't find it documented online but vividly remember watching that when my mom had her show on in the morning. I say this fully aware of all the good Oprah has done in the world; but she was basically Joe Rogan for bored housewives.

For real. The damage is done and her last minute endorsements mean nothing. She basically platformed every grifter that ever crossed her path, either due to greed or gullibility.


boomerinvest t1_iv228tk wrote

Greed definitely. Their shows were produced in Harpo Studios owned by Winfrey. Fuck her she means nothing as does her opinions and candidate backing. She’ll do for whomever offers the highest dollar. I’d bet she never knew who the hell Fetterman was until someone offered her money to say she backs him.

Helps to do it closer to the election to keep it in people's minds. Most of the people who mailed in their votes did so before the debate. So this helps take the heat off the debate before people go to the polls.

I support the strategy and was hoping to see it. Glad we did.

Let's get back on track. Why do you believe corruption stops at politics?


Doug4Prison t1_iv28gsp wrote

I don't fucking care what your West Wing watching ass has to say. You repeatedly don't care what anyone has to say and repeatedly punch left, and take the position of actual MAGA chud fascist. You are doing their actual work for them and they are laughing at you because of it.

You don't care what I have to say as a marginalized person or my experiences. The only reason you pretend to care is because I will vote for your shitlib candidate because the alternative is a literal fascist who want to murder people like me. Please and I can't understate this enough, fuck off.


TacoNomad t1_iv2g8qq wrote

So you don't even know what you're saying. You are just talking to talk. It's not my candidate.

You can't actually find a single opinion of my that fits your narrative of me. But you keep on. Why should someone care about your opinion if they kindly ask for it and you spew this rhetoric instead of answering.

Don't worry. He can't hold you down forever.

I apologize for incorrectly assuming you had an intelligent thought to share. Good riddance.


TacoNomad t1_iv0k1pr wrote

Please tell me you are smarter than that if you are voting next week. Quit acting like wealthy people stop making money off of their connections just because they get into politics.

In fact, politicians stand to make much much more money once in politics. The past 20 years of war are evidence of that.

Please be smarter than this.


Doug4Prison t1_iv0ld3d wrote

You actually think that Oprah took this long to decide that Oz racist, homophobic, and transphobic politics were bad? Anyone with half a brain could tell right away. I'm sure that waiting this long has nothing to do with them being business friends that printed money because of each other. Damn dems really are as fucking stupid as chuds. I hope you at least feel a little joy over your smugness when we both get lined up against a wall in the future. Just another spineless, dickless coward defending their capitalist class oppressor, nothing new here.


TacoNomad t1_iv0m6ra wrote

Oh no. Stay focused, bud.

I'm only responding to the information you put out. You didn't argue that he was a shitty human being. You argued that she couldn't make money off of him. And to that point, I disagree. If he were to be successful in politics, she could easily collude with him to make money. Far more so than fetterman, I believe. Based on their history.

I apologize to you for being born without a penis. I know it's really upsetting to you that you don't have control over other people's anatomy. To be honest, I didn't have a choice in the matter either. That was decided for me before I was born. I will do my best to try to grow a dick, so that maybe then I'll be respected in society.

However, you're showing that having one does not make you intelligent, kind or a good human being; you're ready to rapidly insult someone you don't even know. And realistically, it seems we don't even really disagree with on this topic. But that doesn't stop you from doing your best to throw dumbass insults.

It's not a good look.


Doug4Prison t1_iv0nc4h wrote

Oh no did I hurt your feelings attacking people that worst case want me, others, and you dead, and best case would stand around and do nothing if people like Mastriano started rounding people up? Damn fucking got me. Keep punching left, I'm sure it will eventually work out for you.


TacoNomad t1_iv0sb1h wrote

I'm not sure why you read my comment and believed my feelings were hurt. You keep making weird comments about shit we didn't even talk about. This is behavior we typically see from MAGAts that can't see out of their hoods.

Remember that this conversation is about how crooked politicians are. I'm really not sure what you want from me. It's like you're arguing against oz, but I'm also against oz (and Mastriano but that's not the topic of this thread) and somehow it's a problem for me to oppose them. It makes no sense. I have no idea how you feel that I'm defending capitalism by suggesting that politicians are corrupt and their millionaire/billionaire cronies stand to benefit from political-economic gain.

What is your actionable plan if ol Dougie starts rounding people up? What is it that you have planned out to do in resistance? Besides crying on the internet to people who agree that he's a disgusting racist fucking turd. Please share the plan so that everyone else can be prepared to take action.


Doug4Prison t1_iv142y0 wrote

Libs 🤝 Fash every fucking time. Yall literally can't stop yourselves from punching left.


TacoNomad t1_iv1a4rb wrote

Why do you keep saying that like it means something? We're not even talking about libs or dems. We're talking about how shitty oz is. It's like you learned a phrase that you think sounds cool but you don't really understand the meaning or how to apply it, but you just keep saying it. Doesn't make you look smart.

You want to criticize me like you know me, but yet here you are, letting your boy Mastriano get away with treason because you think it's someone else's responsibility to handle it. Disgusting that you think it's ok to punch down on other people, that you pretend to agree with. We get enough of that with the racism from Republicans. It's 2022, time for our kids to not have to worry about being bullied for simple things like skin color and sexuality.

This is exactly the same rhetoric that a literal white nationalist from stromfront would use minus the 14 words. I'm sorry that I don't have your perfect roadmap to a utopia, which you arbitrarily decide to be legitimate or not. That doesn't give you an excuse to continue down the path of fascism. Your rhetoric makes it extremely clear that you don't give a flying shit about marginalized people. You are more mad at me criticizing a billionaire who was more critical of someone that write a work of fiction than they were of a transphobic, homophobic, xenophobic, piece of shit scammer that they created and platformed for 5 years then waited until the very last second to say they were bad. You are at best a useful idiot and at worst an enabler.

And honestly, if the platitudes you are saying are actually true, maybe you should look into your rhetoric, because it clearly is shit. But again, continue to punch left, I'm sure it will eventually work out for you. I'm a Jewish atheist, anarcho syndicalist, and just queer enough that the I'll be the first to go, and here you are a supposed supporter of my cause fucking arguing with me, constantly punching left, and taking the same stance as them. Seriously go fuck yourself, you really don't give a shit and it is extremely clear. Say whatever you want, I don't care, I'm not going to platform your dogshit takes.


TacoNomad t1_iv1njo4 wrote

You're not even a good troll.

I think you have a feeling and you don't care about what exists in the world around you. How can I be upset about you insulting a billionaire if I literally agree with what you said. Do you see me praising oz or Oprah? Or do you see me saying that they will continue to take advantage of people? Because only the second is true.

What rhetoric am I spewing? That Oz will use his position to continue to take advantage of people? If you think I'm wrong on that, idgaf because it's true.

Please quote me where I said anything in support of oz or Mastriano. Go through as many pages of my post history as necessary. You're so high on your horse that you can't even read the words written. I'm not arguing any ideologies with you. I've only argued against the opinion of me that you are putting out there. Quote where I'm "punching left."

You give yourself all of those labels as if you believe that I am the complete opposite of whatever you believe is 'the right thing to be.'.

We've already addressed that you're willing to denigrate someone for being a woman. Or in your words, dick less. Because you know, women have never been discriminated against. What demographics do you think me and my family fall into? Because I'd hazard a guess that you have an image of me that is so far from reality that you wouldn't even see it if it smacked you across the face.

Again go ahead and quote the exact parts where I'm saying anything in opposition of progress. And tell me what demographic minority/majority labels you believe I am?

The alternative was Dave McCormick. It doesn’t matter either way. I’d honestly prefer Oz over McCormick.


BrainWav t1_iv0rhq2 wrote

She's the one that gave Oz a platform before he started playing at being a politician. If she hadn't endorsed him on TV, he'd have just stayed a surgeon and we'd never have heard of him.

She also gave Dr. Phil his start. Between Phil, Oz, and Oprah herself, they've likely indirectly contributed to the anti-science attitude that's so prevalent these days.

Oprah was a victim of child sexual abuse.

I'm sure the thought of the government forcing anyone to carry the child of their rapist bothers her. Probably more than just a little bit.

Oz has said he believes the state should be involved in this decision and be able to force women and girls to carry the child of their rapist, if this is what the state decides.
