Hey Oprah – there is No Such Thing as ‘Your Truth’

Truth is not subjective. What is “true” must be true whether it is you who find it or I.

Sadly, this is not something that Oprah Winfrey, the recently anointed future Democrat candidate for President, seems to understand.

During her recent speech to her fellow celebrities at the Golden Globes, Winfrey waxed poetic and told the audience that “Speaking our truth is the most powerful tool we all have.”

What does that statement even mean? “Speaking our truth?” What if my truth is diametrically opposed to your truth but only one of us can be right?

“The most powerful tool we all have?” To do what? To speak out against sexual predators? The Truth hasn’t done much good for all of Bill Clinton’s victims. Or Roman Polanski’s. Or the tens of other leftist icons who have sexually assaulted, harassed, humiliated, raped, and destroyed countless women, men, boys, and girls.

Even if we take her statement at face value, it is utterly ridiculous on multiple levels. Practically speaking, the truth doesn’t always lead to justice. We hope that it does, we celebrate when it does, but it’s not always the most powerful tool in our arsenal of life.

In the wake of her ridiculously nebulous, wholly self-serving, and completely hypocritical speech – all of the people cheering Oprah then went to parties with the same sexual deviants they were just pretending to chastise – the media called Oprah “brave” and heroic. NBC even called her “our President.”(They later deleted the tweet.)

Conservative pundit Ben Shapiro thinks the idea is humorous, the possibility is real, but that Oprah is as flawed as any other candidate… particularly when it comes to the #MeToo movement.

“What the hell kind of risk was she taking? She was standing in front of an entire town filled with sexual abusers and harassers. She’s said nothing about it for 20 years, she’s being cheered by people who’ve said nothing about it for 20 years. There she is pretending that she’s leading the fight. In what ways has she led the fight? I sort of missed it. And just because she said some stuff last night I haven’t seen how things have materially changed? … What changed after Oprah?

Oprah said a bunch of stuff. I was under the impression that most of us agreed with that stuff when this stuff first broke. And she lauded the Hollywood Foreign Press Association where were they reporting on the sexual harassment and abuse scandal the last 20 years. It is literally their job to cover Hollywood and yet it took the New Yorker and Ronan Farrow to uncover all of this stuff.

Where was the Hollywood Foreign Press Association that was receiving such plaudits at the hands of Oprah Winfrey, again a woman who is good friends with Harvey Weinstein being cheered by Meryl Streep who gave a standing ovation to Roman Polanski.”

Ouch. Every. Word. Ben. Every. Word.

Shapiro hits the nail on the head with his commentary and he later took it further on his own show, hammering Oprah’s (and Hollywood’s) hypocrisy.

Shapiro also explained to Oprah that there is no such thing as “your truth.” Which is a topic that the folks on MRC TV doubled down on, explaining why the idea of “your truth” is just a ridiculous sentiment.

If you need further evidence that Oprah Winfrey is as “empty suited” as our last President, the Daily Wire has the facts. They found 5 of her biggest fails, and left dozens of other failures to still be researched.


Constitution.com 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
