Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Oprah's Comments 'Undermine Racism When It Does Occur'

Elisabeth Hasselbeck: Oprah's Comments 'Undermine Racism When It Does Occur'

Commented Nov 21, 2013 at 16:53:53 in Media

“Oprah did not say that everyone who disagrees with the President is racist. What she said very clearly is that there is a level of disrespect for the office of the President because Obama is African-American. I have seen it time and time again, in comments on this site and others. So to say that what she says is wrong, simply isn't true. Racism, is still alive and prevalent in many parts of this country. As usual Fox has to put it's negative spin on things. Oprah did not say everyone, she said some people, perhaps many people...and that is true. Elizabeth needs to go back to her Survivor island if she isn't able to see the reality that exists in this country today.”

“That disrespect for the presidency was established by Democrats who went far beyond mere disrespect in their vicious attacks on President Bush. You know it and I know it.”

“Please NO don't send her back to Survivor. I like that show. I wouldn't watch F&F if you paid be. She has to be one of the most irritating, self absorbed, GOP sheep I have ever seen. I wouldn't spit on her if she was on fire.”

“This is not that novel of an idea. Back in 1996 I began conversing with a man that lived about 40 miles away from me in an AOL chat room. After a while we took it to the phone and we talked both online and on the phone for about four months. During one conversation we realized we both had scheduled a week off for the same week, so we decided to go on vacation together, as friends. A week before we were to leave we felt it might be a good idea to at least meet in person, just to be sure we had no issues. We met for one hour, had lunch, hit it off and the next week, off we went on vacation. Everyone thought we were crazy and we probably were, but we had a great time. We started dating after we got back and eventually got married. Although we aren't married any longer, we are still great friends. I have never regretted that crazy decision!”

“She never asked for sympathy, so I am quite sure she won't miss yours in the least. She never had to even discuss her surgery, because she managed to keep it out of the public. She chose to discuss it in hopes that it would help other women. There is no such thing as a "normal" or "typical"breast cancer survivor. Each person has their own unique experience with this awful disease.

The award Angelina Jolie was given was for her humanitarian work as a whole. What she has done consists of far more than just educating women on breast cancer. Perhaps you could spend more time educating yourself and less bashing those who try to assist those who are less fortunate.”

“Several people I know had their current health insurance canceled and new policies under the ACA are costing an additional $300-$400 a month. Where are they supposed to get that money from? It certainly appears the American public was sold a bill of goods based on lies. Everyone gets healthcare? Not in my case. I am unemployed (let go from my job in June due to budget cuts) and my unemployment runs out at the end of December. Because I am projected to have no income for 2014, I get no government subsidy toward the cost. Bare bones minimum coverage is $400 a month for me. My state does not offer medicaid to single adults unless they have young children or are disabled, neither of which applies to me. So no insurance for me. But at least there is one bright spot..the government won't penalize me for not having insurance, because I have no income. Lucky me!!!”

“Are you aware that thin people can have high cholesterol too? My sister who has been thin all her life, has high cholesterol, whereas, I, who have been overweight since I was 6 years old, do not. She smokes, I don't. So save your fat shaming please.”

Slim934 on Nov 4, 2013 at 18:59:00

“Wow, because you're one data point of yourself being overfat with no cholesterol issues overturns ALL the correlative and causative data showing a near perfect correlation. Kudos to you! Yes I am fully aware of it as I have a 300+ pound aunt who has exactly the same cholesterol characteristics. My point is still valid: fatness is largely a choice. Some people accumulate it easier than others, which is unfortunate (especially since I am in this group). But it can still be minimized.”

“If someone brings up their weight I don't think there is any specific reply that you can make. It depends on the question, if there is one, or topic. The only piece of advice I can give is to never be preachy or judgmental about another persons weight, even if they bring it up. As for saying something without the person asking? Don't. Unless you are a doctor, in which case you have a duty to talk about it as it pertains to health.”

“Pretty crappy way to handle it, especially since she spent 4 years in therapy. Why not say it in the therapist's office? Seems to me that would have been a far better way to do it. If not that, then have the courage and decency to tell the spouse face to face. It shouldn't be a surprise if things are that bad in your relationship and it's far better than the knock on the door from a complete stranger. I could understand doing it the way this woman did if she was in an abusive situation where discussing divorce could lead to her being hurt. Then it makes sense.”

“It's the mindset that creates that sort of thinking that is the problem. Those sorts of racist thoughts and comments are learned and accepted somewhere in this young woman's life. Whether by parents, coaches, friends or media she thought it was an acceptable comment to make. It's hardly an overreaction to ask for an apology. Every time we, as a society, excuse racist comments, we give tacit approval by our silence. It's never okay to just let it go.. It's not simply thoughtless, it's racist. And that makes it wrong.”

“Disrespectful to photograph adverts at a holy site. Of course, few pay attention to the fact that the Taj is a Muslim burial site. Even if it were "simply" a burial site, would you want a model shoot taking place there? Yes, disrespectful to capitalize on such a place.”

waseela21 on Oct 10, 2013 at 10:55:49

“"any branding or publicity on the Taj premises is prohibited." The issue is not wearing the shoes, it's about their rules and regulations.

You wouldn't want a tourist go to the Lincoln Monument and to something to it that is against the rules and regulations, so why is it ok for it to happen to the Taj Mahal but not anywhere else.”

“Really...they are embarrassment to all sports? So I guess the end result is not to win. Because if it was only about money, they would have won 19 years in a row. Do you not get that the Yankees are good for baseball? There are lots of small market teams that benefit from all the money the Yankees spend. TV ratings are higher when the Yankees are in the postseason than they are for any other teams. When the Yankees visit other ballparks ticket sales go up, which generates more money for the team as well as for other ancillary services. I have lived in Cleveland for two years and when the Yankees play here the stands are filled. Meanwhile Cleveland, who might actually make the playoffs this year, has had games this past few weeks were less then 10,000 people showed up. So do tell how the Yankees are an embarrassment to all sports.”

“There are not a lot of teams in the MLB that could lose 3/4 of their starting infield, as well as their centerfielder, for the majority of the season and still be in contention up to the last week of the season. It takes a lot of heart and a lot of fight to stay in it that long. For all you Yankee haters out there, you need to learn that being a Yankee isn't about the money. Being a Yankee player is about the pride and the legacy. That's how you throw together a bunch of washed up veterans and some less than starting caliber minor leaguers and make them a team that still has a winning record in spite of all the injuries. Sure you had Mo to close out the games, but you still need to score runs to win. So all you Yankee haters, feel free to gloat. Those of us who are Yankee fans know that the team will rebuild. We may have to put up with a few years of no post season, but that's the way it goes. And we will stay Yankee fans, because we have pride in our team and pride in our legacy.”

“Well let's see..First of all my name is not Honey. Second..I most certainly live in the real world but apparently you don't. Maybe you need to stop reading the National Enquirer. Third, you guessed incorrectly. We both got the kids because even though we couldn't be in the same room without arguing, we had our kid's best interests at heart. So we put aside our differences and worked out an arrangement that benefited them. It has been my experience that it is usually lawyers who treat the children as possessions in a divorce, because it benefits them to have divorces drag on as long as possible. And in my case even though we had shared custody, I paid for the health insurance, clothing, school supplies and much more, because I made more money than my ex. I suggest that you get out more and see what is going on in the real world.”

“Scientifically they are considered fraternal twins even with different biological fathers. In addition they bond in the womb and severing that bond by separating them can cause psychological and emotional problems. It's also cruel. Children are not possessions to be split 50/50. I have always been a David Tutera fan, but this changes my opinion of him in a big way. The children and their relationship with each other is far more important than the drama going on between Tutera and his soon to be ex.”
