Whoopi Goldberg slammed for repeating Holocaust comments
In an interview promoting her new film Till, Goldberg made the infamous remark that the Holocaust “not about race.” which led to her suspension from “The View” 10 months earlier.
Whoopi Goldberg’s antisemitic comments are reminiscent of those made by others throughout history. After Goldberg doubled down on previous Holocaust remarks, furious viewers of “The View” took to social media to demand that she be fired from the show. In an interview for her new film Till, Goldberg made a provocative remark.
Whoopi said “My best friend said, ‘Not for nothing is there no box on the census for the Jewish race. So that leads me to believe that we’re probably not a race,’”
Goldberg further, claiming that the Nazis killed those they thought to be “mentally defective,” arguing that the genocide “wasn’t originally” about race.
Goldberg argued that the Nazi classification of Jews as a race was incorrect. “The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying?”
“So, after supposed ‘apology’ earlier in year, Whoopi Goldberg doubles down on her vile remarks that the Holocaust was not about race, and instead ‘white on white’ violence. Someone get this ignorant fool off the air!” said Arsen Ostrovsky
Goldberg’s comment came only 10 months after ABC fired her from her daytime talk show for saying the Holocaust “not about race.” There was no sign of regret on Goldberg’s part, as she repeated her claim that the estimated 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust were not singled out because of their race.
A co-host on “The View” recently said that not only Jews but also individuals of African heritage were Nazi targets due to their outward differences. In addition, she implied that during the Holocaust, Jews were able to better blend in with White people and hide from the Nazis than Black people were able to do.
Goldberg issued a partial apology after receiving significant backlash and being suspended by ABC following the initial conundrum. “I get it. Folks are angry. I accept that and I did it to myself. This was my thought process and I will work hard not to think that way again,” she remarked earlier this year. “I get it. I’m going to take your word for it and never bring it up again.”
