Nostradamus predicted this in Century 2, Quatrain 89:
One day the two great leaders will become friends,
Their great power will be seen to increase:
The new land will be at the height of its power,
To the bloody one the numbers are reported.
The day has come. All-powerful bullshit billboard Oprah Winfrey has just inked a deal with anti-vaccination lunatic Jenny McCarthy to create a monster of epic proportions. One can assume that Jenny is one of Nostradamus’ “two great leaders” as well as “the bloody one,” considering her already-too-large audience and her apparent joy at encouraging people to put their children at risk of death (see her current body count here).
Oprah previously foisted Dr. Phil and his facial hair upon an unsuspecting nation, so clearly she’s demented enough to make this happen and there’s probably not a damn thing we can do about it.
Well, okay, let’s try to be a little optimistic here. One thing you can do is warn your mother. I don’t know about you, but my mom is right in Oprah’s audience sweet spot: newly retired and possessing a kind of warm affection for Oprah and anything Oprah recommends. Therefore, our best bet may be to head this one off at the pass by sending a short, informative email to our mothers. Like this:
I know how much you enjoy Oprah, and I also know how much you enjoy children not dying. That’s why I’m sending you a quick heads-up that Oprah is about to make a big mistake by giving a lot of money and publicity to a terrible person: Jenny McCarthy, a former Playboy model who is trying to convince people not to vaccinate their children because she mistakenly thinks vaccines are harmful. Her actions have directly led to injuries, deaths, and the spread of diseases like measles that were previously considered to be eradicated in the United States thanks to the vaccination program.
You may want to avoid McCarthy’s new ventures and maybe even let Oprah know how you feel about this.
Your loving daughter
I suspect that this will be more effective than writing your own letter to Oprah. I tried it ages ago and apparently it didn’t work.
