I guess being suspended wasn’t enough to stop Whoopi from spewing her hate. If you’ll recall, back in February, ABC suspended her from “The View” for two weeks for claiming the Holocaust was “not about race.” Well, she apologized for that statement, but now Whoopi Goldberg is back, and she’s doubling down on that bizarre argument that first landed her in hot water. This time she let it fly during an interview with The Times of London. Whoopi said that the Holocaust “wasn’t originally” about race. “Remember who they were killing first,” Whoopi said. “They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision. It doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street. You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making.”
My God, this very famous, millionaire woman really, really wants to be a victim.
Radar Online reported that “The View” moderator Whoopi Goldberg doubled down on her controversial belief that the genocide of Jewish people in the Holocaust was not racially motivated, but was “white on white” violence.
These are similar comments to the ones that got her suspended from the daytime chat-fest back in February of this year.
Despite initially receiving both professional and social backlash for her views, Goldberg repeated the sentiment in a recent interview after being told that the Nazis themselves believed the Holocaust was about race.
“Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it? The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying?” she replied, adding that she didn’t believe it was “originally” about race.
“Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical,” the Sister Act star continued. “They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision.”
“It doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street,” she noted. “You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making. But you would have thought that I’d taken a big old stinky dump on the table, butt naked.”
The Ghost actress first made the shocking comments during the Monday, January 31, episode of The View. Later that day, she apologized via social media and brought up the topic against during her appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
“When you talk about being a racist, you can’t call this racism,” she told the show host. “This was evil. This wasn’t based on skin. You couldn’t tell who was Jewish. You had to delve deeply and figure it out. My point is: they had to do the work.”
I don’t know what ABC will do, but there have been rumors flying that Whoopi was done with “The View” and would be retiring, so we’ll see. Maybe they’ll “hurry” that up.
