Oprah: Anti-Gun Marchers Are The New Civil Rights Movement

"This is a moment"

She may not be running for president (or so she says), but in no way does that mean Americans will be spared from Oprah's leftist rhetoric, conflating the Civil Rights Movement with a modern political battle.

Appearing on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show," the newly-anointed queen-of-all-Hollywood in the wake of #MeToo, compared the students marching in favor of gun control following the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, to marches for equality held at the height of the Civil Rights Movement.

“This is a moment. This is exactly what happened during the Civil Rights Movement where people … they were 18, 19, 20-years-old, young people who said, ‘We have had enough. Enough,'” Winfrey said in reference to the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and others who walked out of class this week. “These kids are right there.”

Oprah then gave the kids some advice: organize. She asserted that the “reason why the Civil Rights Movement worked, there was a strategy. There was a plan. It wasn’t just out there, hocus pocus protesting all the time. There was a strategy, there was a plan.”

This week, Oprah also tweeted in support of the Clooney family, who donated $500,000 to “March for Our Lives” set to take place in D.C. next month.

“George and Amal, I couldn’t agree with you more. I am joining forces with you and will match your $500,000 donation to ‘March For Our Lives,'” Winfrey tweeted.

“These inspiring young people remind me of the Freedom Riders of the '60s who also said we’ve had ENOUGH and our voices will be heard,” she wrote.

The Clooneys promised to be in attendance on March 24 to support gun control.

It should be noted here that neither Oprah nor George Clooney have ever voiced support for the "March for Life" in D.C. Nope. Oprah would never compare that movement to the Civil Rights Movement.
