(ReclaimingAmerica.net) Our posts about Whoopi Goldberg saying the Holocaust “was not about race” have received more emails than most any other story in recent memory.
To say that Whoopi has outraged a significant percentage of Americans with her comments on The View – where she’s now suspended for two weeks – and on a late-night talk show where she doubled down on her comments would be the understatement of the year.
Now, another one of the most controversial figures in the United States of America has jumped into the fire to defend Whoopi.
AOC, as in U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY).
As the New York Post notes in “AOC says Whoopi Goldberg suspension over Holocaust flap was unnecessary”:
“Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said ABC’s suspension of Whoopi Goldberg over her comments about the Holocaust wasn’t necessary, arguing that Goldberg has already been forgiven by a key Jewish organization.
“Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) noted that the head of the Anti-Defamation League, Jonathan Greenblatt, ‘accepted her apology.’
“‘I think whenever there’s a learning moment like this, what’s super important is the relationship between that person and the community they’re making amends with,’ the New York congresswoman told TMZ.” [emphasis added]
“‘I think we really kind of take the Jewish community’s lead on this and they seem to see that her apology was authentic and want to move on,” she said.” [emphasis added]
What is your opinion? Does what AOC stated make any difference to you when it comes to your opinion about Whoopi Goldberg having said that the Holocaust “was not about race”?
