While discussing the Holocaust on ABC’s “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg, whose real name is Caryn Elaine Johnson, insisted that the genocide was not about race, prompting immediate backlash from across the nation.
The talkshow was conversing about a graphic novel about the Holocaust that a school district in Tennessee was voting to ban due to its “inappropriate language” and nudity. Amidst this conversation, co-host Ana Navarro referenced a Florida bill that seeks to prevent classroom conversations that could make students feel uncomfortable about race or gender. Goldberg then chimed in with the stunning comment that “the Holocaust isn’t about race.”
This shows how the radical Left wants to eliminate all acknowledgment of any other type of racism besides towards the Black population. These types of ignorant assertions are not only dangerous but wildly offensive to the Jewish people whose families and ancestors have been deeply affected by the Holocaust and continuing anti-Semitic acts of hatred and violence.
“No, it’s not about race,” continued Goldberg. “It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about.”
“But it’s about white supremacy,” interjected Navarro. “It’s about going after Jews and Gypsies..”
“But these are two White groups of people… you’re missing the point,” insisted Goldberg. “The minute you turn it into race, it goes down this alley. Let’s talk about it for what it is. It’s about how people treat each other.”
These comments prompted immediate backlash from social media, including The Daily Wire’s Ben Shapiro , who Tweeted out a direct quotation from Hitler’s “Mien Kampf”: “Is not their very existence founded on one great lie, namely, that they are a religious community, whereas in reality they are a race?”

To declare that the Holocaust was not about race is an absolute abomination, considering the Nazis’ obsession with race and portraying the Jewish people as a race rather than a religion. Hitler’s entire platform was founded on racial supremacy, with the goal of eliminating the Jewish race in Europe to achieve “racial purity.”
In a time of increasing anti-Semitic crimes, Goldberg is trying to minimize the racially-charged genocide that left 6 million Jewish dead and millions more displaced.
Newsflash @WhoopiGoldberg 6 million of us were gassed, starved and massacred because we were deemed an inferior race by the Nazis.
How dare you minimize our trauma and suffering! pic.twitter.com/nD8drxWpxJ

Many people also expressed their disdain with Goldberg for pretending to be Jewish for years to maintain her stage name, and now she is taking it upon herself to redefine the Holocaust because she wants to keep issues of racism reserved for Black people and their historical struggles.
This just goes to show how the radical Left wants to eliminate all acknowledgment of any other type of racism besides towards the Black population. These types of ignorant assertions are not only dangerous but wildly offensive to the Jewish people whose families and ancestors have been deeply affected by the Holocaust and continuing anti-Semitic acts of hatred and violence.

Leo Terrell tore up Whoopi Goldberg. In his rant on Fox News, the civil rights lawyer claimed she’s using her race as a cover, suggesting she missed World History class in high school.
I feel like @ABCNetwork and @Disney should fire her. She says heinous things all that time and this time she really pushed it over the edge. Why does she get a free pass and people like Roseanne Barr get fired? What’s the difference? #WhoopiGoldberg https://t.co/Acs615I84M

Piers Morgan reminded everyone that although Sharon Osbourne said nothing wrong, she was bullied into numerous apologies and still got fired for defending him over false racims charges.
Yes, but Sharon Osbourne didn’t do or say anything wrong, was bullied into numerous apologies, and still got fired for defending me over false racism claims. Just as I got forced out of my job for refusing to believe Meghan Markle’s lies. The double standard is laughable. https://t.co/lva716oere

Piers Morgan called out The View hosts for continuing to lecture Joe Rogan about spreading disinformation, the day after Whoopi said the Holocaust wasn’t about race……
The longtime host of the talk show apologized on Monday night, saying on Twitter she had spoken to the head of the Anti-Defamation League about her comments.
“As Jonathan Greenblatt of the Anti-Defamation League shared, ‘The Holocaust was about the Nazi’s systematic annihilation of the Jewish people — who they deemed to be an inferior race.’ I stand corrected,” she wrote.
“The Jewish people around the world have always had my support and that will never waiver. I’m sorry for the hurt I have caused,” she added.
