On Monday on "The View" Goldberg made the statement that the Holocaust wasn't about race, it was about man's inhumanity to man, while discussing how a Tennessee school board unanimously voted to remove Art Spiegelman's graphic novel "Maus," a Pulitzer Prize winning book about the Holocaust, from their curriculum.
There must have been a tremendous amount of blowback following Goldberg's Monday morning statement, because on Tuesday's show she said, "So yesterday on our show, I misspoke. I tweeted about it last night, but I kind of want you to hear it from me directly. I said something that I feel a responsibility for not leaving unexamined because my words upset so many people, which was never my intention. And I understand why now, and for that, I am deeply, deeply grateful because the information I got was really helpful and helped me understand some different things."
What "information" did she get that helped her "understand some different things?" Are we to believe that a 66-year-old woman, a supposedly sophisticated person that has been around, as they say, didn't know what the Jewish Holocaust was all about? It wasn't about race? Between 1941 and 1945,"Nazi Germany" and "its collaborators systematically murdered some six million Jews across German-occupied Europe, around two-thirds of Europe's Jewish population."
Not about race? It was ALL about annihilating the entire Jewish population. It's called genocide. It doesn't get more racist than that.
Goldberg went on, "While discussing how a Tennessee school board unanimously voted to remove a graphic novel about the Holocaust, I said that the Holocaust wasn't about race, and it was instead about man's inhumanity to man. But it was indeed about race because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race. Words matter, and mine are no exception. I regret my comments, as I said, and I stand corrected. I also stand with the Jewish people, as they know, and y'all know because I've always done that." Sorry, Whoop, I don't buy the "explanation." I call it an explanation because that's all it is. It isn't an apology. She never says "I'm sorry," she says she is "deeply, deeply grateful for getting "information" and she says she regrets her comments and "stands corrected." She never actually apologizes.
And you know what? I don't believe she really is sorry she said what she said because I think she believes what she said is right.
A woman her age, as I said, who doesn't consider Hitler's goal to wipe out every Jew in Europe as a racist act is either a complete idiot or anti-Semitic. She says in her explanation that she never understood. If that's true than she's a bigger ignoramus than I thought she was.
The fact may well be that Goldberg is not only anti-Semitic but anti-white. Maybe she's one of the far-leftists who believes that racism only exists when it is against blacks.
Aryan genocide, mass murder, and torture against Jewish people doesn't count as racism in her mind. But when whites disrespect blacks, NOW you've got racism. For everyone else it simply is "man's inhumanity to man."
What a phony.
I understand that Goldberg has been suspended from her show for two weeks to "reflect" on what she said. Oh yeah, that's just what she needs, a time out. I'm sure a two-week vacation will set her convoluted thinking straight.
Goldberg said she stands with the Jewish people. I know she has to say that if she wants to continue to work in show business, but I don't think she stands with the Jewish people.
I've seen the size of her these days, and it's a miracle she can stand at all.
