Billionaire media titan Oprah Winfrey delivered a speech at the Golden Globe Awards that was so stirring and powerful that it compelled more than one person to think that Oprah might be the right person for Democrats to back in their attempt to unseat Republican incumbent and fellow billionaire and media figure Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
However, this idea predictably did not sit well with America’s large population of bigots. Speaking for bigots and others who reason poorly across our country, Infowars host Alex Jones hit back at the idea of “President Oprah” by making some truly bizarre claims about Winfrey.
On his show, the Trump-backing conspiracy theorist brought up how Winfrey’s property in the Southern California town of Montecito had become damaged in the recent mudslides. Pretending to be concerned, Jones told his audience in a mocking voice, “Oh my gosh. Oh, she is just such an angel and it’s just all what a—she’s such a survivor, she’s such a good person. She cares about everybody, and this is now what’s going on. Simply amazing.” Jones then referenced a since-deleted tweet he made earlier this week about Oprah somehow being “an absolute anti-human, Nazi troll.” Elaborated would-be historian Jones, “There were plenty of black Nazis in World War II, you can actually look it up. The media thought that sounded crazy, so they ran with that. But when I got into her sticking her tongue into Weinstein and women saying she brought women to them and basically set them up and that she’s been involved as a child prostitute, and all the rest of this stuff, and the fact she doesn’t want her lesbianism—nothing wrong with lesbianism, lady, it’s fine. The point is, just—let’s get it out front and be proud of it.”
Jones carried on, “And nobody wanted to touch that, see, because, ‘Oh, you don’t talk about that with the grand leader.’ I mean, she’s like the shadow president now, they’re about to say. Watch. She’s really like America’s conscience. It’s the phenomenon after Trump won, America stood up and she became the voice. She’s our mommy when she’s not sticking her filthy tongue in Harvey Weinstein’s fetid, scaley, diseased ear.” Is it depressing that some people in our country actually believe this?
