    “I think that incident in Switzerland was just an incident in Switzerland. I’m really sorry that it got blown up. I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland,” Winfrey said Monday night at the Los Angeles premiere of “Lee Daniels: The Butler.”
    Only because it was easy for reporters to find the store, interview the saleslady, and find out that Opie-rah was wildly exaggerating her claim of racism.
    Sadly for her and others of her ilk, I, like so many others, have become immune to the claim of racism. It has become a word that now means “The claimant is a pathetic crybaby”.

    Of course the irony here is that Oprah could have not only afforded the $38,000 hand bag but could have bought ownership of the store as well. Now instead of whining about someone questioning her ability to buy anything she wanted because she didn’t look wealthy because either of her skin color, demeanor or attire, she had the means to make the point very powerfully by purchasing the store itself. But no, whining takes so little effort. Let’s not solve the problem when prolonging it to get attention is so much more self righteously satisfying.

    Victimhood is the self righteousness of the morally weak minded. Self righteousness used to be viewed as a moral failing, but in the liberal view of the world it is the highest goal of attainment. A truly low bar indeed!

    As God said of King Saul via Samuel, “Although you were once small in your own eyes, did you not become the head of the tribes of Israel? The Lord anointed you king over Israel. 18 And he sent you on a mission, saying, ‘Go and completely destroy those wicked people, the Amalekites; wage war against them until you have wiped them out.’ 19 Why did you not obey the Lord? Why did you pounce on the plunder and do evil in the eyes of the Lord?” … and hence his fall from grace.

    Oprah has been blessed with so much and yet she remains so small in her own eyes. Here is a person with means/power to change attitudes around the world and chooses not to. Why?

    Oprah is worth nearly $3 billion and she’s still whining? Give me $3 billion and you can fail to show me all the handbags on Earth.

    You know if I went to Zurich and was refused to be shown a $38,000 handbag, I would instantly assume it was because I was black. No, wait a minute! I’m not black! Because I was white! No, that can’t be right, either…because I was beige!!! People of Pallor unite!

    If Oprah had smacked a heavy duty Am Ex card on the counter, the clerk wouldn’t have cared if she was green.

    Winfrey is part and parcel of the American “race pimping” industry.

    Who is actually surprised that she acts like a “race pimp”?

    She certainly has proven Phineas Taylor Barnum’s accuracy about the character of the American public.

    She’s “race pimping” away …, oh she’s “race pimping” away …

    Why not?

    “Race pimping” has helped make her filthy rich.

    Yep, she’s a real piece of work.

    So………Orca found out that there’s no NAACP overseas. SURPRISE!!!

    Guess what lardass…….people in foreign countries have the freedom to discriminate for whatever reason. I’m not saying that this is the case here but it seems that “she, whose behind rivals that of the FLOTUS” got a wake up call.

    Not everyone in the world is going to bow down and kiss your enormous ass.

    Get over it.

    good that it’s only some of them but they are yelling too loud and expect what?
    the only thing they get is a feeling of being sorry for them no matter how rich they are, they diminish their humanity and it doesn’t go away, they feel small,
    good the whites who have a history of ancestor having been slaves, they did not let that diminish them,
    hey it’s time to get over that time, you who feel small have been emancipated a long time ago,
    stop propagating that hate you where told to dragged like a boulder, to your children who because of it are attacking the young whites because of your hate propagation,,
    you as a parent or educator or big mouth leader,carry the responsibility alone,
    it’s not the white’s problem but you’res.

    @Rides A Pale Horse: You beat me to it. Orca Winfrey- you’re so busted. I’ve noticed that she’s very gravitionally challenged. I guess I’m a lard ass ist who practices lardassism. The black croc purse was manufactured and so was her pity trip.

    Because she, like so many others, is an attention whore addict. It doesn’t matter how many millions she has, if one salesclerk in Switzerland doesn’t recognize her, then in Opie-rah’s mind, her life is a failure. That is what this is all about, not any bigotry by a clerk, but the clerk not knowing who she was.
    I doubt if I would recognize her in public, either. Does that make me a bigot? Or just someone who has discriminating good taste in entertainment?

    @Petercat: Eric Berne’s book from the 60’s, Games People Play, had one called NIGYYSOB – “Now I’ve got you, you son of a bitch”. Some people take great pleasure in being offended. Oprah might like getting off on being offended so much, she has to leave the States to experience it.

    Racism- it’s an easy and cheap way to get headalines. Plus, the media will cover it without fact-checking it or being concerned about the truth. We have turned into a country of winers and crybabies who worry about hurting each other’s feelings instead of doing what is right.

    NYC Hotel Kicks Out ‘Duck Dynasty’ Star After Confusing Him For Homeless Man

    Appearing along with his family on “Live with Kelly and Michael” Wednesday morning, Jase Robertson described the incident.

    “The first thing that happened to me at the hotel was I got escorted out,” Robertson said, joking that it was a “facial-profiling deal.”

    Robertson said that the hotel employee simply didn’t know who he was.

    “I asked where the bathroom was and he said, ‘Right this way, sir.’ He was very nice,” Robertson explained. “He walked me outside, pointed down the road and said, ‘Good luck.’”

    Robertson continued, “So I circled back around and my wife said, ‘What happened?’ and I just said I just got kicked out.”

    Robertson took it in stride and didn’t blame the employee for the incident. Robertson continued to stay at the hotel despite the incident.

    At least the store in Switzerland let Oprah in.

    @PROOF#27 – Never heard of it but LOVE it!! Also your comment, yes, I agree 200%…some too many people (Liberals) just live off the phony drama they create… they need to just suck it up and get over it…

    There is a tee shirt out there somewhere that says:
    You find it offensive, I find it funny…that’s why I’m happier than you.

    Great ‘dig’ at liberals/Progs…and those doomed to eternal whining…LOL
