Goldberg said on “The View” that the Holocaust was not about race. Some conservatives are criticizing her statement and say that she is downplaying the genocide of six million Jews. Goldberg’s statement is at odds with the mainstream understanding of the Holocaust, which is that it was an attack on Jews specifically because they were Jews. Her comments could be seen as denying the very reason why the Holocaust happened in the first place.
Whoopi Goldberg should be fired, not suspended, for her remarks about the Holocaust. Her comments were offensive and inappropriate, and they showed a blatant lack of respect for the victims of that atrocity. Goldberg owes an apology to all those who were affected by the Holocaust, and she should be held accountable for her actions.
Reported by the Hill ABC President says she suspended Whoopi Goldberg for her remarks about the Holocaust:
“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments. The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities,” Kim Godwin, president of ABC News, said in a statement.
The view itself should be taken off the air. This didn’t just stirrup Conservatives, but it had to upset even some Democrats. As for Whoopi, she should be blackballed by Hollywood big wigs. For way too long now, this woman has been getting away with making comments about our Jewish sisters and brothers.
Following an interjection from another co-host, Ana Navarro, who said the Holocaust was about “going after Jews and gypsies,” Goldberg pushed back again.
“But these are two groups of white people,” Goldberg cut in. “But you’re missing the point. The minute you turn it into a race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s how people treat each other. It’s a problem. It doesn’t matter if you’re Black or white because Black, white, Jews … everybody eats each other.”
She was forced to apologize for her remarks on the Holocaust only because of the backlash she received for them on social media.
“On today’s show, I said the Holocaust ‘is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both. As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s sympathetic annihilation of the Jewish people – who they deemed the inferior race.’ I stand corrected, The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused,” she said in a statement posted to Twitter.
We must stand with our Jewish brothers and sisters. I’m calling on all conservatives that do watch the view to please boycott them, NOW. A suspension is saying, we only suspended Whoopi because of the outrage from our viewers. It’s time to show ABC, we Conservatives will retaliate by boycotting the show.
God Bless America, God Bless the Veterans
