“The View’s” chief bully Caryn Johnson, AKA “Whoopi Goldberg,” was suspended for two weeks from the ABC show on Wednesday for making disgusting anti-Semitic remarks about the Holocaust earlier in the week. Many Americans didn’t feel her suspension was enough punishment, especially when comparing the treatment of Roseanne Barr and other conservative celebrities. They made far less egregious remarks and were immediately canceled by the Hollywood mafia.
“Effective immediately, I am suspending Whoopi Goldberg for two weeks for her wrong and hurtful comments. While Whoopi has apologized, I’ve asked her to take time to reflect and learn about the impact of her comments,” Kim Godwin, president of ABC News, said in a statement.
“The entire ABC News organization stands in solidarity with our Jewish colleagues, friends, family, and communities,” she added.

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 far-left talk show 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.
This isn’t the first time the comedian, actress, and chief bully on “The View” was called out for anti-Semitism.
The Daily Mail reports – In 1993, Goldberg – whose real name is Caryn Johnson – submitted the recipe to Cooking in The Litchfield Hills, a charity cookbook comprised of recipes from the well-heeled residents of the leafy Connecticut suburb.
DailyMail.com exclusively obtained a copy of the long-forgotten cookbook, where Whoopi’s recipe mocking Jewish-American women glaringly stands out amongst friendlier submissions like legend Diane Sawyer’s ‘roasted potato skins with scallion dip,’ the late Eartha Kitt’s ‘summer zucchini soup with nasturtium blossoms’ and Oscar de la Renta’s ‘fresh pumpkin and crab soup.’
Former US Senator Joe Lieberman’s submission was for ‘noodle pudding,’ while fashion designer Diane Von Furstenberg submitted ‘sour cream stuffed chicken with new potatoes.’
Whoopi’s recipe reads: ‘Send chauffeur to your favorite butcher shop for the chicken (save the brown paper bag). Have your cook 1) Melt equal parts oil and butter 3/4 deep in skillet over moderate heat.
‘2) Put flour, seasoned with remaining ingredients, into brown paper bag. 3) Rinse chicken parts and place in bag.
‘Then you tightly close top of bag (watch your nails) and shake 10 times.
‘Hand bag to Cook, go dress for dinner. While you dress, have Cook preheat oven to 350 degrees and brown chicken slowly in skillet. When evenly browned, have Cook place chicken in dish in oven. Have Cook prepare rest of meal while you touch up your makeup.
‘In about half an hour, voila! Dinner is served! You must be exhausted.’
At the time, the recipe was slammed by none other than The Anti-Defamation League, whose current CEO went on The View on Tuesday to tell Whoopi why she’d been so offensive earlier this week, before she was suspended.
They called the recipe ‘insulting’ and ‘anti-Semitic.’
‘It’s a lousy recipe with insensitive and anti-Semitic ingredients. Whoopi should know better.
‘She needs some sensitivity training, unfortunately. The good people who published it need some sensitivity training too,’ Abraham Foxman, the National Director of the ADL at the time, said.
In response to the outrage, Whoopi’s agent at the time – Brad Cafarelli – offered a quick explanation: she is Jewish.
‘Maybe (the critics) are not aware that Whoopi is Jewish, so she is certainly not anti-Semitic,’ he said.
It was one of many ambiguous statements about her faith.
In 1997, four years later, she said in an interview with Playbill: ‘My family is Jewish, Buddhist, Baptist and Catholic — none of which I subscribe to, by the way, as I don’t believe in man-made religions.’
She said she took the name Goldberg, which is unavoidably Jewish, from a ‘Jewish ancestor.’
Whoopi’s anti-Semitic recipe submission aligns with another well-known, far-left Democrat anti-Semite, Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN).
In 2012, the Muslim MN State Rep, who is now a freshman US Congresswoman, tweeted about Israel, asking “Allah” to “awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel.”
On February 10, 2019, freshman lawmaker Ilhan Omar found herself in some hot water when once again, the Muslim lawmaker was caught tweeting derogatory remarks about Jews, saying “It’s all about the Benjamins baby,” when House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy called her out for her anti-Israel comments.
Ultimately, Speaker Pelosi prevailed, and Omar’s anti-Semitic comments were left unpunished.
