Considering Oprah Winfrey’s skeletons in her closet, the liberal mainstream media is still touting her as their female messiah to win the 2020 presidential election. The only things she has going for her is that she is female, black, ultra-liberal and rich. Liberals seem to ignore the facts that she turned to drug abuse (smoking crack) because of a bad romantic relationship, or that she used to promote spiritual mediums who claimed to speak to the dead along with supporting numerous quack doctors.
If she makes it past all of that and more, Republicans need to fear her because she has along history of being an anti-gun activist, using many of the age old rhetorical arguments that all are false, but still believed by liberals.
(NRA-ILA) – Democrats searching for a standard-bearer in the 2020 presidential election lit on long-time entertainment, media, and publishing figure Oprah Winfrey this week, following a speech Winfrey gave at a televised Hollywood extravaganza. Winfrey received wide acclaim for her remarks, but amidst the #oprah2020 mania that has followed, questions have arisen over what Winfrey stands for politically and whether she has the desire and skill set to lead the Free World. Some of those questions remain unanswered, but for gun owners, one thing is crystal clear: Oprah Winfrey embraces the staunchly anti-gun posture of contemporary Hollywood.
Winfrey’s anti-gun activism dates back to at least the 1990s when she was closely involved with the rabidly anti-gun group CeaseFire, Inc. The now defunct group’s website, still archived online, attests to its fanaticism. It’s Mission Statement, for example, explained:
Through a coordinated public service announcement (PSA) print and broadcast campaign, our mission is to mobilize a broad cross section of American leadership to educate and promote handgun-free homes and families. By highlighting the public health implications of handgun violence, Cease Fire can educate Americans to view handguns as the inherently unsafe and dangerous products they are, and not appropriate to have in any home. [Emphasis added.]…
It’s sad that many current polls have Oprah ahead of anybody if the election was held today and what seems to be the most important to many of her supporters is that she is black and female. If a bad romantic relationship drove her to drug abuse, what would she do if elected president in the event OF a possible war OR some national crisis?
