News, Talk Shows

The View moderator Whoopi Goldberg is currently on break for the holiday season. The daytime talk show is on an extended hiatus and will return sometime in the New Year. Whoopi sparked controversy even though she’s not on the show. Late last week, her new interview with The Times went viral on Twitter.

The comedian doubled down on her comments about the Jewish community and the Holocaust. She shot back at the critics and said it was as if she was “butt-naked” and taking a “stinky dump” on the table. Whoopi still feels that the Holocaust was “not about race” as she defended her previous statements from earlier this year.

Holocaust comments that got her suspended

Back in February, The View suspended Whoopi Goldberg from her position. She said on the show that “the Holocaust isn’t about race.” Whoopi and the panel discussed the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel Maus on the January 31st broadcast. The novel reveals the torture that Jewish people went through during the Holocaust.

A Tennessee school removed the book from its eighth-grade curriculum. The school administration argued that it had harsh language and female nudity. Whoopi made the argument that “the Holocaust isn’t about race.” Her co-host Joy Behar wanted to know what the Holocaust was about.

“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man,” Whoopi Goldberg argued. “These are two white groups of people.”

She was hit with backlash from the panel. Whoopi told them they were “missing the point.” The actress explained that it was about “how people treat each other.” The next day, she was removed from the panel. Whoopi also apologized for “the hurt I caused” in a tweet.

She also apologized on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert in February. However, she still defended her claims and said it’s hard to decipher Jewish people by race. She feels that they don’t understand what racism is. The Oscar winner argued that the Klan wouldn’t be able to pick them out on the street.

Whoopi Goldberg makes fresh hurtful comments

The daytime television host made fresh hurtful comments. Whoopi Goldberg claims that the idea of Jewish people being an entire race is up for debate. A debate that she took on again She claims that most of the community is divided over whether they’re a race or a religion.

“My best friend said, ‘Not for nothing is there no box on the census for the Jewish race,'” Whoopi Goldberg explained to The Times. “So that leads me to believe that we’re probably not a race.”

The journalist warned her about agreeing with Nazis who saw the Jewish as a race. The Sister Act star argued that the Jewish people shouldn’t believe them. She also explained that the Holocaust “wasn’t originally” about race.

“Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical,” Whoop Goldberg continued. “They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision.”

Whoopi Goldberg is backing up the claims she made earlier this year. It’s the same comments that led to her two-week suspension from The View. Fans and Jewish leaders have called for her firing from the show. They argued that she has not learned from her past mistake.

  1. Will they fire her? Probably not. In my opinion, it is shameful how insensitive she can be. Americans treated slaves with the same insensitivity (sold them and their children for profit, beat them, hung them, mamed them because they felt they owed them them and felt them inferior) and everyone is in an uproar. But to torture, use other human beings for experiments, to murder millions of people in gas chambers or just to line them up in trenches and shoot them because they were of Jewish heritage is somehow different. They were all human beings, African/Jewish does it really matter. Acknowledging that both happened helps to hopefully keep history from repeating itself. Just my opinion.

    1. Trying to moralizing this as Germany killing its own people lessens the fact that six million were killed because they were Jewish. It’s Always convenient to blame white people for slavery. But, that’s not true. Blacks sold blacks into slavery in Africa, a fact completely ignored in these kinds of racial arguments. It’s obvious Whoopi learned nothing before. I believe Jews are defined by race as far back as the Bible. In light of all the negative things she’s done, and she had more chances that Roseanne Barr got, it’s time to cut her loose.

  2. Sometimes these celebrities need to stop putting their foot in their mouths I believe what happened to the Jews, African Americans or any race this country still have a lot of hate and racist in this world people need to remember God made us all in his image we have blood that is red running through our veins we have leaders today who are full of hate for us African Americans and all people of Color when will the hate and evil stop how long Lord how many more any more innocent people have to be have to die before justice is done

  3. They CAN’T fire her. The funny thing is the reason they CAN’T fire her is the same reason that they want to fire her. RACE.

  4. She is a democrat and knows she can and day and do whatever she wants she is above the Law and she knows it . White people were slaves also . But she don’t know that lol

  5. What’re you, new in town?

    Whoopi Goldberg has a LONG, varied history of talking out of her ass than Roseanne.

    (She said Roman Polanski drugging and fucking a 13 year old “wasn’t RAPE rape,” and defended Bill Cosby, to name a couple of examples…)

  6. I approve wholeheartedly with a previous parties apertures about ms.Goldberg that she talks out of her — and takes up for proven sex offenders etc. she doesn’t need to be given a platform to spout her hurtful words,the same with the others on the View.

  7. Two are more things can be correct about the same subject or issue. The question is should someone be punished if they focus on the least popular aspect of the question or issue

    The entire subject of Race should be dropped for the sake of clarity. Generally when we speak of different races we are actually referencing skin color or shade. Thus leaving most Jewish people to identify their race as White. As evidence, I looked at a dating site, Jewish women usually identify their race as White, their religion as Jewish.
