‘The View’ Host Whoopi Goldberg Suspended After ‘Wrong’ Comments on the Holocaust

ABC News suspended “The View” host Whoopi Goldberg after she falsely declared on Monday, repeatedly, that the holocaust was not about race because it was between groups of white people… or something.

Goldberg went on an apology tour beginning Monday night on Twitter where she unequivocally said she was wrong. It was a strong apology without the usual “but” and “because” that most liberals use to explain an incident instead of atoning for it. For that, respect is deserved. She followed up the Tweet on Tuesday with an on-air apology.

“As Jonathan Greenblatt from the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people — who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected,” she wrote.

She then got sent to her room for two weeks.

“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments,” ABC News president Kim Godwin said in a statement.

While the punishment is deserved, not everyone is pleased with how long it took to happen.

“People are really upset and don’t understand why it took two days,” an ABC executive told The Daily Beast.

While I disagree with Whoopi’s initial statements that the holocaust was some white people not getting along, there is an interesting perspective here.

She apparently sees Jewish people and the more general “white people” as the same. European Caucasians and Jews have entirely separate histories and, in fact, the very tragedy she mentioned is about a group of European Caucasians attempting to wipe out the entirety of the Jewish people.

Her failure is a misunderstanding of history and of color. Since Obama’s election, color is all many see while they ignore everything else. The ‘everything else’ is what makes us unique and/or exceptional – not our color.

  1. Part of me is so very happy this clown is “on forced vacation” but the more I think about, no, not really.
    She said something stupid, something wrong, something insensitive. She should apologize (and she did) and we can all move on, that is what i would EXPECT for us all, so many Conservatives said less and got punished more, I did not like them getting “canceled” so I don’t like it for this clown either.

    Oh, and that said, conservatives did say less, conservatives were fully canceled, Whoopie said worse and is gone for a mere two weeks. It’s time to stop this entire cancel culture mentality and we can be the bigger people and start by accepting Whoopies apology and moving on can’t we?
    (but yeah, again, I DO rather like her getting her backside spanked like this, but it’s time to grow up)

    1. I agree that cancel culture needs to be canceled. “The View” is little more than old ladies griping about things at the bridge table. Let ’em be. I have no desire to watch that dumpster fire, but whoever it is that likes it should be able to see that mess in all its glory.

      As far as canceled conservatives, ABC is smack dab in the middle of that crap cookie. Disney owns ABC and the Mickey Mouse company eliminated Gina Carano for saying and doing literally nothing offensive. It puts them in the place of either firing Whoopi (which I disagree with) to seem consistent or just looking like the far-left, hypocritical jerks they are. I’m pretty sure I know which way this will go.

      Thanks for the comment and being a reader!
