Oprah Winfrey headlined a rally for the Georgia Democrat gubernatorial candidate. In her speech, she floated the idea that Republicans were dishonoring African-American victims of Segregation. Breitbart reports:
In a Thursday speech in the Republican-leaning suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia, Oprah Winfrey urged voters to make history by backing Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams in next week’s election, saying she refuses to allow the sacrifices of those who were “lynched” and “oppressed” to be “in vain.”
Oprah: “I'm here today because of the men and because of the women who were lynched, who were humiliated, who were discriminated against, who were suppressed, who were repressed and oppressed … I refuse to let their sacrifices be in vain." pic.twitter.com/9ijjOWkLv5

Abrams is locked in a tight race with her Republican rival, Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, as she tries to become the nation’s first black female governor.
Oprah Winfrey praised Abrams as a “change-maker” who represents the values of all Georgians. The talk show icon, who rarely makes political endorsements, drew cheers when she said she’s a registered independent who was not in Georgia at anyone’s request.
“I paid to come here myself, and I approved this message,” Winfrey said, explaining that she tracked down Abrams’ cell phone number and called her to say she wanted to offer assistance in the final days of the campaign.
This fear mongering by out of touch, out of state, TV stars is outrageous in this day and age, and should not be rewarded.
Ohhhh… Myyyy …
Oh … Well, THAT would be the DEMOCRATS!!!
Yes, Oprah and Stacey ACTUALLY Play a RACISM Card in Promoting the Party of Historic Racism in the USA.
It must be nice to be SO devoid of ANY Knowledge of History.
The Demoncraps see the Black vote slipping away and their desperation drives them to bring up things like slavery. Oprah has a short memory, though. It was the Demoncrap party that supported slavery and segregation and the Republicans who freed the slaves.
She is kind of ungratiful ! Sorry.
Oprah, Oprah, Oprah, when did you get so much hatred from the people who made you rich?
This is exactly why the races are still so divided. People like RACIST Obama and RACIST Opey Winfrey, and YES she is a RACIST, conjuring up garbage from many decades back simply to get Blacks fired up to vote for Blacks just because they are Black. The color of your skin does NOT qualify you for anything.
Overlooking a more qualified person simply because their skin (Black or White) isn’t your favorite color is NOT a sign of great intelligence.
Oprah Winfrey is just proving to be another racist, bringing up atrocities committed over 70 years ago, opening racial wounds long forgotten by a culture now fully desegregated, and in harmony and unison for equal rights for all races, just to win a political race by dividing people through the opening-up of new racial tensions.
I was totally appalled by Oprah’s speech!
Like my dad used to say ” if BS was music, she would be a brass band”. Seriously, I never heard a more bizarre speech in this day and age . Oprah proves liberalism is a mental disease.
She shows up to stir racial tensions – nothing more. What did she possibly hope to achieve by talking about slavery?
God bless and save America!! ??????
