Whoopi Goldberg Doubles Down On Claim that Holocaust Wasn't About Racism

You don't have to be an expert historian to know that Hitler and his minions were hellbent on exterminating the Jewish race from existence through brutal, genocidal means. The Germans believed themselves to be a part of the superior “Aryan race,” and sought to kill those who were not part of it -- a textbook example of racism.

This is perhaps the most infamous example of nation-wide racism in history. Despite that reality, Whoopi Goldberg still seems to believe that there was nothing racist about the holocaust.

The host of “The View” doubled down on some comments she made in January that because Germans and Jews had relatively the same skin color that the Nazi’s murder spree wasn’t racially motivated. The dialogue within that episode with Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar, and Ana Navarro went as follows:

“If you’re going to do this, then let’s be truthful about it because the Holocaust isn’t about race. No. It’s not about race.”

Hostin said, “Maybe about ethnicity.”

Referencing the Nazis, Behar said, “Well, they considered Jews a different race.”

Goldberg continued, “It’s not about race. It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”

Co-host Ana Navarro said, “But it’s about white supremacy.”

Goldberg said, “These are two white groups of people.”

When you’ve got Behar, Hostin, and Navarro - three of the dumbest people on television -- suggesting on live TV that you’re wrong, Goldberg should have taken that hint and stopped talking. Fortunately, she had the good sense to apologize after.

But that was 11 months ago, and people can change.

In an interview with the Sunday Times of London that was published during Hanukkah -- horrible timing on Goldberg’s part -- she doubled-down on her comments she made in January.

The Times reporter Janice Turner said that the Nazis saw "Jews as a race."

"Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it?” Goldberg responded. “The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying? It doesn’t change the fact that you could not tell a Jew on a street. You could find me. You couldn’t find them."

Good thing for Goldberg, we don’t have to take the Nazis word for it, because every sane person knows that Hitler’s regime rose to prominence in part by convincing Germans that the Aryan race -- of which they were a part -- was superior to other races like the Jews, blacks, etc. And the Nazis maintained that Jews were to blame for Germany's misery in the interwar years.

Naturally, many people were rightfully disgusted by Goldberg’s comments and shredded her for them on Twitter.

Goldberg’s attempt to minimize what the Holocaust did to an entire race of people by making an irrational claim should get her at least suspended like last time and probably fired. But because she’s a progressive, she’ll probably just get a slap on the wrist and life will go on.
