Kid Rock Is Part Right About Oprah, but There’s More

Kid Rock called out Oprah Winfrey as a “fraud” for her late-in-the-race backing of stroke-challenged Lt. Gov. John Fetterman in the Pennsylvania Senate contest.

The Kid said she had helped Fetterman’s opponent, Dr. Mehmet Oz, with his career and such a recommendation demonstrated a considerable amount of hypocrisy.

I’m a big Kid Rock fan—very happy he’s here in Nashville, Tennessee—but I think The Kid only caught one part of what’s motivating Oprah.

Oprah is angry—very angry, uncontrollably angry—about what may be happening across our country on Nov. 8. Many of her beloved liberal candidates—not just the addled Fetterman—may be getting their walking papers.

And Oprah—a devoted liberal/progressive/whatever—doesn’t like that at all.

She is used to being obeyed. 

She’s used to our country and a good part of the world taking her advice, even to the books we read, often the kind of liberal swill we also hear promoted on “The View.”

After all, Oprah Winfrey is the very embodiment of celebrity culture. Her main residence (of many) spans 70 acres in Montecito, California, and is said to be worth $100 million, not all that costly to someone with a net worth of $2.5 billion.

How dare we—hoi polloi—contradict her?

Of course, Oprah isn’t alone. Almost all the Democratic leadership, cultural or political, think of themselves as the ruling class: those who know better, who know best what is best for the rest of us.

They collectively—even Oprah, who regularly stresses integrity in her writing and on her shows—were able to overlook the obvious fact that Fetterman lied multiple times about fracking that he at first adamantly opposed and then suddenly supported with no explanation for the reason for his change.

That’s because the motivation is so obviously cynically electoral in a state so dependent on energy for economic survival.
