More blood on Oprah’s hands

Posted on

It seems to have been ages since this post, and this… in which the link between Oprah’s obsession with new age nonsense in ‘the Secret’ and smooth talking con artists pushing self-help solutions clearly resulted in a preventable death.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t stopped, and here another example – 3 deaths caused by some idiot pushing the really deep idea that ‘thoughts, feelings and actions need to be firing simultaneously in the same direction’. Oh what a lot of drivel. Just wish for it, and so it will be. It’s the Secret all over.

This piece of video focuses one of the deceased. It’s both heartbreaking and infuriating.

Good work again Oprah.

Unfortunately, none of your charitable works brings back the dead, or in any way makes up for facilitating con artists to find their marks.

    And don’t get me started on Dr.Phil…
    Hey; another humble request – please do reptilian shape-shifter conspiracy nuts. I had to tripple google them recently to make sure they were for real. Bat. Shit. Crazy. It seems to be getting more popular.
    By the way I work in a video compression sphere and mpeg2/4 compression creates most of the ‘proof’ this relies on… hilarious, in a strikingly off-putting kinda way.

      Oh yeah, know of them. The series V did nothing to dampen their enthusiasm.
      Although, sometimes I think they have a point. Surely Tony Abbott is a reptile under that clever human disguise. Oops – forgot, I don’t do politics.
