Oprah doubles down on the Emmett Till comparison

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

It’s been quite a controversial few days for Oprah Winfrey and considering she’s pushing a new movie it’s probably by design. She turned heads last week by comparing Trayvon Martin’s death to Emmett Till, two very very different killings. She doubled down on that story today – Glenn offered a stern rebuke and a recent killing ignored by the media that more closely resembles what happened to Emmett Till.

During an appearance on promoting her new movie, Oprah said, “ The truth of the matter is Emmett Till became a symbol for those times, as Trayvon Martin has become a symbol for this time.”

Needless to say, Glenn felt like the comparison was way out of line, and he delivered a scathing monologue on the matter during radio.

” Here’s what Oprah Winfrey doesn’t understand. That is a made‑up symbol. All of the facts, all of the facts show that Trayvon Martin is not Emmett Till. All of the facts show that race played no role in this… at all.”

“So only the people who are trying to hype their shows on MSNBC or to hype their position as a race‑baiter like Al Sharpton, only those who are trying to make sure that their policies are never questioned because they need the race card, and they actually believe the things that Jeremiah Wright said, like the president, and those who are trying to sell and hock their movie. Those people need to have Trayvon Martin as Emmett Till.”

Glenn said that instead the icons of race today should be Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian.

“Those names most likely you’ve never even heard of but because of a listener of this program who called me and challenged me to tell the story, I did earlier this week on television. This will be a little easier because I don’t have the pictures to show you on radio. Newsom was 23, former standout baseball player working as a carpenter. Christian was 21, student at the University of Tennessee. They had been dating for about two months, and on the night of January 6th, 2007, they planned to watch a movie at a friend’s apartment. When Janet didn’t show up the next day, concerned family reported them both missing. It turns out the couple had made it to dinner, but when they arrived to the apartment complex where Christian’s best friend lived, they were carjacked by multiple assailants. What followed was one of the most heinous, gruesome, and senseless hate crimes ever. Christian Newsom’s evening started with a wonderful date with his new girlfriend, and now here he was, just a few minutes later, gagged with a sock in his mouth. His ankles were bound with his own belt. His hands were tied behind his back, and his face was wrapped with a bandana. His head was covered with a sweatshirt tied around his neck and then he was violently raped with an object and beaten.”

“I can only imagine the horror that Christopher experienced when he was forced to walk barefoot on the nearby railroad tracks. There he was shot in the neck and in the back. But the first shots didn’t kill him. He fell to the ground where he laid paralyzed. That’s after the rape. The assailants stood over him, placed a gun against his covered head and fired, killing him execution‑style. But then they wanted to make sure that they mutilated the body. So they poured gasoline on his body and set him ablaze.”

“But… the boyfriend was actually the lucky one. Because they came back for her. Channon Christian, who was taken back to the home of the assailants, where she was forced into a back room of the house. She was hogtied with strips of fabric from a bedding set and for several hours she endured brutal sexual assaults, repeatedly raped in just about every possible way imaginable. This story is so much worse if you go out and actually seek the courtroom documents. But you don’t need to know more than raped in every way possible. She was kicked and beaten with several objects, including a broken chair leg. She suffered major wounds to her genital area. She had two major blows to the head. She was still alive and still conscious. Can you imagine what she was thinking? Bleeding, she was finally dragged out of the back room and into the living room. But the assailants realized that they had left DNA on the victim. So they tried to cover their tracks by pouring bleach all over her. Then, realizing that they had left DNA inside of her, they poured bleach down her throat. She was still alive. They then wrapped her body in a black garbage bag, her head in a white plastic grocery bag. They then dumped her body in a garbage can in the kitchen of the house, all of this while she was still alive. This woman who started hours before, just going out to have dinner with her boyfriend and over to her friend’s house to watch a movie, now was upside down in a garbage can, her throat burning from bleach, and rape, beaten within an inch of her life, suffocating in a garbage can.”

“There was no Al Sharpton on this case. Much to my shame, there was not even a Glenn Beck on this case. This happened in 2007. I had never heard of this story until a listener phoned in last week. There was no one, and still there is no one calling for social justice on this case. The suspects had all been convicted but then the original judge was discovered to have a drug addiction, which got him disbarred, which meant that the dirtbag attorneys went back and said, ‘You know what? We can open your case again, open the door for the killers to try to abuse the justice system.’ But one have been repeatedly pursuing retrials and appeals”

“It wasn’t just guys that did this. There was a girl involved as well. The family has been dragged into court and had to relive this since 2007 over and over and over again.”

“The killers were four black men and one black woman. Why is it nobody talked about this case? Do we have to have an Al Sharpton? Do we have to have a Jesse Jackson? Do we actually have to go and protest? Do we have to go and strong‑arm? Do we have to go to the media companies and say, why aren’t you doing this, and we’ll boycott you if you don’t report on this story? Why is it you’re not reporting on this story? Is it because it doesn’t fit? Is it because it doesn’t work to your advantage? I thought we were a country about equal justice. I thought we were a country about being fair. I thought we were a country that was trying to do the right thing.”

“We’re not the country that’s trying to do the right thing. We are not that country. But the good news is we are those people.”

“Oprah Winfrey, you disgust me. As a woman who has gone through hell and back and made it, and pulled yourself out by the bootstraps. You made it. You made it. You grew up with hate from your own race, you grew up with rape in your own race and you pulled yourself out. And the American people, both black and white, yellow and red, it doesn’t matter the color, they saw you make it! They saw you overcome everything that you had faced, and we celebrated that! So much so that you make $70 million a year! So much so you’re the most famous and most accomplished black woman in the history of America! You have your own network because we celebrated that you made it. You disgust me. Why are you telling everybody else they can’t make it? Why are you telling us that white people are the problem?”

“Oprah, I’m sorry to point out to you, people are the problem. Doesn’t matter what color they come in. Scumbags come in all colors. The scumbags in the 1950s that did that to Emmett Till, I don’t think there’s a dark enough, hot enough hell for those people.”

“You tell the Emmett Till story and it breaks your heart. You tell the Emmett Till story and the thought of his mother opening up that coffin and part of his head falling out because insult upon injury when they put him in, they put lye in there with him to destroy his body. You can’t be a functioning human being and not feel that.”

“But vengeance belongs to the Lord alone. Justice will never be done here on Earth. But we can strive for it. And I weep for my country because I know God is just. And I weep for my country because we are on the verge and the precipice of just an unbelievable bright dawn. The whole world is starting to understand not politics, not bankers, not power, not houses, not cars, not fame, not stuff, but love. The whole world is on the verge of understanding true freedom, and just leave me alone. Just leave me alone and let me worship God in my own understanding.”

“There are bad guys out there, but race has nothing to do with it.”

“Oprah, I choose to be the person that America thought you were. I choose to be the person that will overcome the bad things in my life. Nobody’s going to tell me what I can and can’t do and who I am. I know who I am, and I will not be beaten down by the system, and I will hold those people up that feel the same way, no matter what color. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses, yearning to breathe free. Give me the ones that you have told ‘You’ll never make it,’ send them to me, the tempest tossed. Because I hold my lamp beside a golden door.”

    I guess this only proves that racism is still in the Democratic Party. They claim the racist went Republican but when someone that looks like white defends himself from a black man it is racist. What was Zimmerman supposed to do let Martin kill him? Is that what he was supposed to racist left? Why isn’t black on white crime as equally racist but keep not thinking left?

    You are correct Stephan but she is only an “icon”. What she says is dangerous and her comments on Treyvon and Emment are irresponsible. Her audience, which is huge, will take her words as the gospel, but if they took the time to analyze both cases, they would see she is full of it.

    Wow….that was pretty heartfelt Glenn…and your thoughtful insights and sincerity travel over here to the UK. I have thought for a while that Oprah is not the woman we thought she was…maybe has a bit of a chip on her shoulder. She needs to “clean her spectacles” so she can see what’s really going on outside of her show biz bubble and make sure she gets her facts straight before she starts spouting forth her opinions. That story you recounted was heatbreaking. I can’t imagine the suffering they went through and afterwards..the suffering of their grieving parents. It’s just despicable.

     The point of the article is that Oprah, though she is the most influential celebrity, has it wrong and is promoting a dangerous, racist agenda. The point is not to argue that she isn’t #1 on that list. The point is to address the dangerous dogma that her and her ilk are pushing. If that truth hurts you, then so be it, but the ISSUES must be addressed. Any fool can support Oprah: that is their freedom to do so in this country. Being #1 does not mean that you are never wrong, or that people should blindly follow what you do and say.

    The left does not see the fact that racism is as rampant in the black community as it is in the white. In neither case is it right. But the left thinks it is one sided and it is the whites that are racist. When they can’t get what they want, or are opposed in any way, they blame it on racism. This land was founded  on the principle of everyone having the same opportunity. It’s what we do with the opportunity that matters.

    Many people like Oprah have risen above their circumstances through hard work and perseverance. But most of our generation thinks that America owes them something. The government is not the source of wealth. HARD WORK is what builds wealth. If we depend on handouts to live, we will always be enslaved to those who provide the handouts. That is why our forefathers fought for freedom from oppression by writing a freedom document that restricted the power of government.

    In the words of one of their own party, John F. Kennedy, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask instead, what you can do for your country.” How quickly has the left leaning Democrats forgotten him. They wish to divide, rather than unite the races of this country while blaming it on everybody else. They have learned their lesson well from Obama. He has never taken responsibility for anything that he has done. He blames it on someone else. Those who support him play the race card whenever he is opposed. He plays the race card when it serves his purpose of dividing and conquering the population of America. When will we wake up to the insidious desires of Obama and the lackey politicians of both parties that cow tow to him.

    Not only does Oprah have to do the usual celeb thing and draw attention to herself with a movie coming out but Obummer is paying attention to her again after Moochel and Valeria Jarrett gave her the boot right after his first election after using her name/money to get to there which shows she can be and willing to be used just like all movie stars & politicians.

    Some of us saw her up close and personal before she was quite so famous. I was done with her in the late 1980s or early 1990s. There was a piece of yellow journalism entitled “Dangerous Delta” about the cancer rate in Louisiana’s industrial corridor. The problem with the report was that they had to take Baton Rouge out of the data set to get a cancer rate that exceeded the national average. So Ms. Winfrey came down to a small community in south Louisiana to discuss the made up issue with the locals. It was portrayed as an audience that simply showed up. Well, the truth was somewhat different. Every body that worked or was a family member of someone who worked at one of the facilities or supporting vendors was systematically excluded from the meeting.

    I have now heard and read this horrible story several times now. It just get worse each time. What a horrible crime and the pain those two young people endured. Obama and his minions are getting what that have been striving for, racial hatred! I grew up in the sixty s and seventies and recall those times so well. I had moved past my racial hatred of those times where I no longer held any distain of the black race. Obama, Sharpton, Jackson and others are fueling my long forgotten dislike and bringing it back! Shame on all of them. The progress our country had made is disappearing before our eyes and that is their goal. Again, shame on all of them!!!

    Uh, what is Oprah trying to accomplish?   Martin and Till were two very different young men.

    The reasons why each died was different.  Unless she was in the courtroom or deliberated with

    the jury, she is only speaking her OPINION that Martin’s killing was racist.  The jury found no

    evidence of it.  Defense witness statements said Zimmerman was not a racist.

    She wants justice in America?  How about the black fellow who shot a baby in the face while

    his mother was being robbed?  What about the black children shot and killed in Oakland?   I live

    near that city and feel strongly about this.  Didn’t Oprah have her TV show in Chicago?  What’s

    her ”opinion” on the many black on black killings in that city?  Where is justice for the victims?

    When she ”crusades” for justice for the young black children being murdered by members of

    their own race, then I might take her ”opinions” more seriously.

    And the pitiful part is – she’s rolling over and letting them do it again by going along with all the hate over this Martin/Zimmerman fiasco.

Where is the justice for this young couple who were killed by people so hate-filled they don’t belong in civilized society. This kind needs to be locked away permanently – they are filth – they are less than scum – and I hope they can’t keep dodging the trial and get the conviction they deserve. This is one of the worst hate crimes I have ever heard of and it completely overshadows what happened to Emmett Till – and that was bad enough. What sickens me with Oprah is that her audience has always been mainly white women and now that they have deserted her (when they found out what a hypocrite she is), she’s lost her ratings. If she doesn’t change her tune, her racism is going to be her undoing as far as her career goes. I used to like her but not anymore  she’s just another racist Liberal being used by Obama

    The only racism I have ever seen was Black racism. They are so determined to justify their victimhood, they had to grab the slightest incidents of white “racism” the media could hype up and run them into the ground, and make a stupid punk hood an icon. Kind of symbolizes everything they are all about, like that fake mural Obama put up. Lies for the liars. The numerous incidents of BLACK racism are simply ignored, They don’t “count”, like this terrible atrocity committed against this young couple. I’ve got an idea. Why don’t you all concentrate on another kind of “racism”? Join the HUMAN race, why don’t you? I”m sick to death of the whole carping, whining bunch of you. Go live in Africa if you want to be “African-Americans”. If you think you’ve got it so bad here, go live in your “motherland” for a while, and see how good they’ve got it.

    Unfortunately, this is the mantra of leftists and those who profit from the grievance industry. Oprah is their queen. She used to come off as compassionate to all races, but now we know the truth. If you are white, you are racist and therefore, inferior. 

    Until we wake up and start holding ALL people accountable for their actions, regardless of skin color, we cannot ever come together. There cannot be behaviors that are justifiable and acceptable for one person because of nothing more than mere skin color, no matter what happened in the far distant past. It is as if the race baiters, Oprah included, are determined to contend that the same prejudice and wrongdoing that existed during the days of the slave trade are still alive and well here in the United States and they are all victims. 

    There is no hope for a society that accepts the concept that there are those for whom the rules do not apply. We cannot hope to achieve the dream of Martin Luther King with such attitudes. A truly color blind society cannot credibly condone reprehensible behavior because of race while condemning such behaviors in those of different skin color. 

    None of these moronic leftists seem to understand the ridiculously ludicrous nature of their claims of their own victimization by racism while commanding positions as the most powerful people in the world and as members of the super rich. It is simply not believable that such things could be achieved if race played a major factor in their lives. The fact that hard work and perseverance was rewarded with both money and power proves that the very system which they claim has victimized them and keeps those who share their skin color from succeeding, is NOT racist. Only 19% of the American population is black, yet Oprah is one of the richest people in America and Obama is the most powerful man in the world. Only committed leftists could possibly not laugh at the blatant hypocrisy literally dripping from every word and not hang their head in shame or laugh at their deceptions. 

    It is time for Oprah to go away and relearn how normal people think and live. She is morally bankrupt and guilty of race baiting to generate profit. She should be ashamed of herself.

    Trayvon Martin was a worst case scenario of events coming together.  It’s full of if only’s.  Both Trayvon and Zimmerman were wrong in their actions, only Trayvon got the ultimate punishment.  To me the worst things about this is that it spoken about as a them and us, black and white, good and bad, wrong or right.  That case is full of injustice, and it should speak to us all as WTF moment as to what is happening in our culture.  WTF we need to roam and police our streets.  WTF we need to walk around armed.  WTF the youth have no understanding of consequence.  WTF the media turns ever new event into political spin and destroys facts for ratings.
    The Trayvon case should be a wakeup call to all of us.  we are so bitter that we don’t care that a 17 year boy is dead and a family lost there kid.  WE should focus on making sure that this kind of situation never happens again.

    I don’t have a problem with what most of Glenn said… however Emmet till is not a made up symbol he was a very real young man with a soul. As a result of his very REAL tragedy at the hand of racist sociopaths he was brutally murdered and it spurred the African-American community to take action and it sparked the civil rights movement…  therefore a symbol.

    Please Mr.Glenn Beck please do not brainwash the masses by trying to re-write history. You are a clever actor a puppeteer to who is also a puppet. God Knows His Own… seek Him Jesus Christ and not the $$$. I rebuke your lies in the name of Jesus.

    From what I can tell from an outside perspective, racism is far more rampant in the US black community than the white. There is racism and anti-racism among US whites, but almost all US blacks are at least black-nationalist. The US left-media works hard to promote animosity by US blacks towards US whites, so this is hardly surprising.
