Who does Whoopi Goldberg think she is? I could be nasty and speak very disparagingly about her but that would be classless, even though it would all be so true. Whoopi has had her way so long on The View that she honestly believes she is The View. She referred to Jews and Nazis as “two groups of white people” and said that because they were both white, it was about inhumanity and not race. It is interesting to note here that the contemporary left considers all Semitic peoples except Jews to be “people of color,” with Jews being excluded primarily for antisemitic reasons.
Whoopi apologized hours later and again on Tuesday’s morning episode, but the original remark sparked immediate international backlash with everyone from the Israeli Consular General in New York to the Auschwitz Memorial and Anti-Defamation League (ADL) taking offense.
Whoopi’s co-hosts are furious she has been suspended by ABC from The View for just a mere two weeks after she claimed the “Holocaust wasn’t racist.” ABC failed to say if Whoopi will still receive her $96,000.00 a-week paycheck. She should have been fired, not suspended.
Later ABC tweeted on Twitter, “While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments.” The tweet continued, “The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family and communities.”
A supposed ABC insider told the Daily Beast that Whoopi’s co-hosts – Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Ana Navarro – are “furious with the network’s decision” to suspend the actress. I am furious at the double standard shown here. Could you imagine if Meghan McCain had made any sort of racial innuendo, she would have been fired on the spot without severance pay? I am sure she would have gone in the twinkling of an eye.
During McCain’s tenure on the show, McCain found herself on the receiving end of backlash due to statements made on-air and has been upfront about her own problems with the program. Since departing the show in July 2021, McCain has become a writer for DailyMail.com. McCain stated of the situation that “I am not calling for Whoopi Goldberg to be fired, if only because I don’t believe there is any universe where she could possibly do anything that could get her fired – she is the crown jewel of The View and a pop culture icon.” McCain gets it. Whoopi has become The View.
There seems to be a trend amongst the liberals and those who support Black Lives Matter (BLM) that only Black people have suffered injustices. They want you to forget about the American Indians, the Jewish people, any white person who suffered any indiscretion by another, in particular, if they suffered at the hands of a Black person. Just look how our police across the nation have been vilified to the point they are quitting in droves due to this progressive and woke mindset.
On Late Night With Stephen Colbert, the comedian and actor doubled down on Whoopi’s comments, explaining that the Holocaust was “White on White.” Goldberg suggested that the Nazis “had to do the work” to find out who was Jewish. As Greenbaum noted, Goldberg bizarrely argued that if she and a Jewish friend encountered Klansmen on the street, only she would need to run because the Jewish friend would likely be able to avoid detection.
This is seriously sick and disgusting. I loathe this mockery of double standards. I do not deny that Black Americans have suffered over the years from slavery to date in ways we may not understand, but this does not excuse Blacks from minimizing atrocities to other people or races – religions due to color and or gender. This reeks of reverse racism and the angst of people that refuse to help themselves by uplifting their own neighborhoods and people. Whoopi talks the talk but never has given back in ways to her people that would help them, much like Oprah Winfrey. They are a disgrace to their race and this nation.
Goldberg is a very Jewish name and Whoopi should seriously consider dropping that as her last name. Whoopi is not worthy of such a Jewish name. What do you think of Whoopi Bigga? Much more fitting for someone who believes they are bigga than big. Also, Bigga has no “White” affiliation, which suits her disgusting views. As far as The View, it should be taken off the air as it has become a ridiculous hotbed of unuseful idiots.
