Whoopi Goldberg is really doubling down on stupid these days. “Ten months after getting suspended from ABC’s daytime talk show for insisting that the Holocaust was “not about race,” Fox News wrote, Goldberg reiterated her insane talking point that the Holocaust was not about race and remained merely a white-on-white crime.
In an interview with the UK paper Sunday Times, Goldberg “showed little remorse for her past rhetoric, arguing again that the estimated 6 million Jews who were systematically killed in the Holocaust were not targeted based on their race,” Fox continued.
Continuing her descent into woke idiocy, Goldberg even attempted to claim that Nazis went after Africans with the same enthusiasm as they did Jews, and even that Jews had it easier because they had an easier time blending in.
“It doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street. You could find me,” Goldberg insisted, suggesting her black skin color made her an easier target for the murderous Nazis. “You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making,” she said. “But you would have thought that I’d taken a big old stinky dump on the table, butt naked.”
Try telling that to six million Jews, Whoopi.
Last January, Whoopi caused a firestorm over her incendiary remarks that the Holocaust was not about anti-Semitic beliefs, but rather “man’s inhumanity to man” – whatever that means. As one Twitter user wrote, Goldberg made the All Lives Matter argument to the Holocaust.
Here’s that infamous exchange and video.

“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man, that’s what it’s about,” Goldberg said.
“But it’s about a White supremacist going after Jews and Gypsies,” a co-host rebutted.
“But these are two White groups of people,” Goldberg insisted again..
“Well, they considered Jews a different race,” another co-host chimed in.
“It’s not about race,” Goldberg reiterated.
“What is it about?” a co-host then asked.
“The Holocaust isn’t about race,” Goldberg continued. “No, it’s not about race.”
Producers abruptly quit that segment and cut to a commercial before Whoopi could step in it anymore. Whoopi issued a banal apology and subsequently served a two-week suspension. Now, though, with her remarks repeating the same anti-Semitic thinking, she has much less support this time around.
“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!” one Twitter user wrote.
“Once again Whoopi insists on dismissing the Holocaust as a mere white-on-white crime, rather than the industrial-scale murder of Europe’s Jews. #Antisemitism — history’s oldest and most toxic hatred — is surging, but Whoopi is determined to trivialize it,” another said.
“Accepting apologies from some people who spew Antisemitic garbage is the triumph of hope over experience. We know that the Antisemitism will likely reoccur, but we still hope that they learned something along the way. Alas Whoopi just learned she could get away with it. Again,” wrote a third.
One Nazi and Holocaust survivor shared that Goldberg’s views were unfathomable.
“She was mistaken. This was very much against my race, my Jewishness. It wasn’t White people against White people as she says,” the survivor claimed. “We were White, but we were being exterminated because we were Jewish. Men, women, children, infants, killed because we were Jewish.”
“I assume she’s an intelligent person,” she added. “[But] I don’t understand how she could be so unaware of the Holocaust, how it happened and that it happened to us, the Jewish people.”
