WHOOPI Goldberg sparked outrage on Monday when she claimed on The View that the Holocaust “has nothing to do with race.”
The control panel of the program becomes hot when Oscar-winning actress tried to defame the other co-hosts when she claimed that the Nazis didn’t kill people for racial reasons.
Goldberg’s comments came just days later Holocaust Remembrance Day in memory of the six million people who have died.
Opinion Monday’s program discussed the recent scandal after a Tennessee school board voted to remove the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel Maus from the eighth-grade literature curriculum.
The book depicts Jews who were tortured and murdered by the Nazis during World War II.
The board has declared that the book is inappropriate because of bad language and nude depictions of women.
It was dropped from the school’s curriculum after months of increased pressure from parents in several districts for books that focused on issues of race, gender identity and sexuality.
“I’m surprised that’s what makes you uncomfortable, the fact that there’s some nudity. I mean, it was about the Holocaust, which killed 6 million people, but doesn’t that bother you? ‘ Goldberg asked.
“Well, here is the white man doing it to the white man. All of you, let’s fight together. “
The co-hosts agreed with the actress that there was a “mistake” that kept the kids unprepared for the “real world”.
“Look at what kids watch these days and the music they listen to,” says Sara Haines.
“To say that showing them a piece of art or history that happened is bad language or nudity?
“Turn off reality TV, turn off the radio, turn off everything they’re doing because kids are exposed to these things really early in inappropriate situations that aren’t where you’re studying or teaching.”
While these early comments did not initially attract the anger of her co-hosts, Goldberg later reverted to her hypothesis that the Holocaust, was sparked by belief in a “racial race.” owner” and desire “racial purity”, not about race.
“If you’re going to do this, then be honest about it,” says Goldberg.
“Because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race.”
Co-host Joy Behar hit back: “Then what is it about?”
“It’s about man’s inhumanity to man,” Goldberg replied, once again insisting Adolf Hitler’s “Final Solution” is not about race.
“That’s what it’s about.”
Another co-host, Ana Navarro interjected, arguing that the Holocaust focused on white supremacy.
“Well, it’s about white supremacy. That’s the thing. It’s about hunting down Jews and gypsies,” she told Goldberg.
“But these are two groups of white people,” Goldberg replied.
“You’re missing the point,” she continued.
“As soon as you turn it into a race, it’s going down this alley.
“Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s the way people treat each other. It’s a problem.
“It doesn’t matter if you’re black or white because black, white, Jew… everyone cannibalize each other.”
“So if you’re uncomfortable hearing about Maus, should you be concerned, should your child say, ‘God, I wonder if that’s me?'” Goldberg then asked.
“No! That’s not what they would say
“They’ll say, ‘I don’t want that.’ Most kids, they don’t want to be cruel.”
Navarro continued to argue, however, noting that it was essential for children to learn about the Holocaust.
She highlighted how some are comparing the way yellow stars were used to identify Jews during the Holocaust with the need to show vaccination status against Covid.
“We live in an age where people want to compare vaccine tags with yellow stars to compare vaccinations to what Anne Frank Navarro said.
Goldberg re-emphasized “to learn about the inhumanity of man to man,” before sending the show to the premiere.
The actress was posted online for her comments on Monday
One Twitter user said: “Absolute ignorance of the non-Jewish world, encouraged by the mainstream media, when it comes to the Holocaust.”
“Open a book godd**n.”
“Whoopi Goldberg tries to ‘All lives matter’… Massacre,” another wrote.
One user commented: “Some Holocaust education would give Whoopi a good world.”
