Reminder: Oprah Helped Spread Anti-Vaxxer Nonsense
Quote | Reply
Not a big fan of hers (or the current guy), and if it's her and Donny Two-Scoops squaring off against each other in 2020 I'm simply not going to vote for anyone, or vote ever again. Because our republic will have doomed itself at that point and I'll be too busy constructing my tar paper shack in the Montana wilds to -- or up on Ruby Ridge -- to really care all that much about the former America. ;-)

"Winfrey’s role in this controversy dates back to 2007, when she brought Jenny McCarthy, the Playboy model and actress, onto her show to talk about autism. McCarthy’s young son, Evan, had suffered a series of seizures at two-and-a-half years old and was later diagnosed with autism. McCarthy was adamant that the MMR vaccination Evan received as a baby caused his autism. On the show, McCarthy told Oprah she had been instinctually uncomfortable with allowing the doctor to give her son the vaccine. “I said to the doctor, I have a very bad feeling about this shot,” McCarthy recounted. “This is the autism shot, isn’t it?”

On the show, McCarthy’s claims went virtually unchallenged. Winfrey praised McCarthy as a “mother warrior” and plugged her book Louder Than Words: A Mother’s Journey in Healing Autism, which inaccurately suggests childhood vaccinations contribute to autism. Winfrey did read a brief statement from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which said there was no scientific evidence of a connection and that scientists were continuing to study the causes of autism. “It is important to remember, vaccines protect and save lives. Vaccines protect infants, children and adults from the unnecessary harm and premature death caused by vaccine-preventable diseases,” the CDC statement concluded. But McCarthy had the final word. “My science is named Evan, and he’s at home,” she said. “That’s my science.”"

I recall some pundit the other day calling Oprah Winfrey "America's preeminent snake oil salesman." Personally, I think it's Gwyneth "Goop" Paltrow, but Winfrey (and the guy in the White House, to tell the truth) are pretty high up on that list. ;-)

Last summer I told my wife that if Trump won I would be very worried about the people of the US. She told me over the weekend that if 2020 is Oprah v. Trump we are packing up.

No idea if we would be moving to Canada or Saturn.

We are so fucked.

Canada wouldn't have us.

You think maybe we could volunteer as lab rats for Elon Musk and his Mars flight? ;-)

This is not illogical. Not moving because of Trump is sort of a wow, what did the electorate do, or wow, Hillary was that bad, or wow, Obama was more divisive than we thought. We'll have to weather this storm. Trump was a reaction and America will learn its lesson.

If Oprah wins its more of a Holy Shit, America really is full of vapid idiots. This is going to continue. Let's get the fuck out!

Slightly off topic, but TrumpCriticizesTrump could be the single best subreddit in the directory.

Grew up south of there in the Coeur d'Alene/Post Falls area...be aware you're going to see a lot of Trump bumper stickers.

On a related note I get the impression our completely brilliant and totally stable leader has been such a tweeter (that's a thing, right?) over the years that you could find tweets on a multitude of topics where he expressed pretty much all viewpoints. That must be the key to being totally brilliant (I wouldn't know!)..you're able to hold all viewpoints on all topics!

...whatever the case..yeah..we're all f'd.

He clearly does not care for either Candidate Oprah or our brilliant and stable leader..hence he should be aware there are a bunch of bumper stickers for one of them in the area

Stop being so offended and OMG-ish. It's a fun thread about someone moving to the sticks because both of those people suck.

Or in political circles and high society, a flip-flopper. Most often caused by opposition outrage or political/social gain. Not on my team - a flip flopper. On my team - they have every right to change their mind. Cake for everyone!

I'm going to head over to the TIL thread and let them know that today I learned women can't "see" sarcasm!

Alll kidding aside listing Oprah as a candidate was a joke good sir.
