This has been an interesting 2 weeks of deceit and lies brought to us by the Republican Party. The GOP's think that bringing a woman who describes herself as a "pit bull with lipstick" into the campaign is going to be a winning ticket. Apparently, the Republican Party thinks that Americans are ignorant or just stupid. Being a communityorganizer is apparently a big joke and now they want to protest our leading lady of television. I DON'T THINK SO..
This morning several newscasts reported that the Republican women in Florida are organizing an Oprah Winfrey boycott for declining the decision to have Sarah Palin on her show as a guest. We don't have to agree with everything Oprah does or say, but we must all respect and support her decision. Oprah is the hardest working woman in the history of entertainment and has open doors for people like Tyra Banks, Queen Latifah, Wendy Williams and so many others to begin talk shows.
She reinvented what African American beauty is considered on television and has provided hundreds if not thousands of people with job opportunities. Remember it was Oprah who traveled to New Orleans after Katrina and insisted that they let her into the Superdome that reaped of death and feces. It was the first time I saw her angry and was not accepting no for an answer. She was on the verge of knocking someone out because it was such a personal tragedy for all of us. I remember crying as I watched her show but then again I cri ed for the entire week that I watched my people dying on CNN waiting for assistance from The B ush Administration to rescue U.S. citizens because Condi was busy shoe shopping in NYC and Bush and Cheney were on vaca tion and missed the International coverage that we all witnessed for over 7 long days and nights.
It was Oprah who started the first efforts through her Angel Network to provide homes for displaced survivors from Katrina and called upon her friends for donations of new homes, not the leadership of the Republican government.Oprah has never campaigned or publicly endorsed anyone until Senator Obama because she believed before most Americans could properly pronounce his name. Now, some of us are on the Obama staff, volunteers, donors, etc., because we all believe in him. Oprah was instrumental in bringing him national notoriety early in the election.
I AM ASKING FOR EVERYONE TO TIVO, DVR AND S PREAD THE WORD/FORWARD THIS EMAIL TO A MINIMUM OF 50 FRIENDS AND FAMILY TO WATCH/SUPPORT OPRAH'S SHOW THAT AIRES ON ABC NETWORK AT 4PM EST. CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTING FOR STATION/TIME IN YOUR MARKET AND RECORD IT FOR AT LEAST 1 MONTH.
WE MUST SPEAK CLEAR AND LOUD THROUGH THE NEILSON RATINGS THAT REPUBLICAN WOMEN HAVE NO POWER AND WILL NOT AFFECT OPRAH'S RATINGS, BECAUSE SHE HAS THE RIGHT TO SAY NO THANK YOU TO PALIN OR ANYONE ELSE THAT SHE DECLINES AS A GUEST.
IT IS NOT CALLED THE REPUBLICAN WOMEN SHOW, IT IS THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW!!!!!!!
IF OPRAH SAYS SHE DOESN'T WANTTO USE HER SHOW, IN WHICH SHE CREATED OVER 15 YEARS AGO FOR POLITICAL PLATFORMS, THEN SHE WILL NOT BE THREATENED BY IGNORANT SUPPORTERS OF THE PITBULL WITH LIPSTICK. LETS CALL THIS "COMMUNITY ORGANIZERS ARE NO JOKE CAMPAIGN."
THIS IS PART OF A CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN TOO!!!!!
PLEASE PASS THIS ALONG AND DON'T FORGET TO SET YOUR TELEVISIONS FOR AT LEAST 1 MONTH OF TAPING THE OPRAH WINFREY SHOW.
THE CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT IS OVER AND WE WILL NOT BE PUSHED AROUND ANYMORE!!!!< o:p>
DON'T FORGET TO VOTE, IT'S YOUR RIGHT AND DUTY!!!!!!
