(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – If there’s anyone who knows how to dig a hole even deeper when she’s already in trouble, it’s Whoopi Goldberg.
After first apologizing for statements she said on The View about the Holocaust, Jews, and race, she repeated the same statements only hours later on a late-night talk show – sparking even further condemnation for her view that the Holocaust wasn’t about racism.
As the New York Post reports in ‘I stand corrected’: Whoopi Goldberg apologizes for Holocaust comments:
“Whoopi Goldberg apologized for saying that the Holocaust was ‘not about race’ — only to seemingly double down on her controversial take while trying to justify her remarks on late-night TV.
“The View co-host initially attempted to quell the outrage over her remarks late Monday by posting a tweet that offered her ‘sincerest apologies.’
“‘On Today’s show, I said the Holocaust’ is not about race, but about man’s inhumanity to man.’ I should have said it is about both,’ Goldberg wrote.” [emphasis added]
Then, as the Post notes, Goldberg went on a late-night talk show and repeated and expanded on her initial statements that had caused the uproar. Predictably, she was met with even more outrage.
“Liora Rez, executive director of watchdog group StopAntisemitism, called Goldberg’s comments’ reprehensible.’
“‘I am the granddaughter of Holocaust survivors on both sides of my family. To say that the Holocaust was not about race when everything the Nazis did was to ensure the purity of the Aryan race is blatantly untrue, and it is reprehensible,” said Rez. “Six million Jews were gassed, starved and massacred because we were deemed an inferior race. For Goldberg to minimize our trauma and suffering by claiming we are from a privileged class is the epitome of whitewashing and gaslighting Jews, and it needs to stop.” [emphasis added]
