Once again, the party that claims to be the most culturally and racially sensitive proves that they are just disguising their fundamentally racist views. An episode of “The View” went south on Monday evening after the co-host of the show, Whoopi Goldberg, made some extremely insensitive comment regarding the Holocaust, where she kept insisting, “It’s not about race. It’s not about race. … It’s about man’s inhumanity to man. That’s what it’s about. … These are two white groups of people.”
Goldberg quickly regretted her comments when an 88-year-old Holocaust survivor decided to tweet a message to the show’s team, asking them to please have her come on their show.
Lucy Lipiner said the following in her tweet: “Hi @TheView, I am a Holocaust survivor in NYC. I might be 88-years-old but I have the energy to come on your show and talk to @WhoopiGoldberg and all the girls about the Holocaust. I think we can have a meaningful conversation together and heal wounds. DM me! Love, Lucy.”
Lipiner was only six years old and lived in Sucha, Poland back in 1939 when Nazis invaded her home and she, her sister, and her parents were forced to flee the area. Her mother lost the entirety of her family to the Holocaust, and Lipiner ended up hungry and barefoot in Tajikistan and Siberia before she was finally able to arrive home in America. She described her struggles in her book, “Long Journey Home: A Young Girl’s Memoir of Surviving the Holocaust.”
Goldberg initially decided to apologize for her insensitive comments but then, on Monday Night, she doubled down on what she said during her interview on “The Late Show.”
“I feel, being black, when we talk about race it’s a very different thing to me. So, I said I thought the Holocaust wasn’t about race. And it made people very angry. I’m getting a lot of mail from folks and a lot of anger. But I thought it was a salient discussion because as a black person I think of race as being something that I can see.”
The host of the show, Stephen Colbert, then asked Goldberg, “Have you come to understand that the Nazis saw it as a race? Asking the Nazis, they would say, ‘Yes, it’s a racial issue.’”
“This is what’s interesting to me because the Nazis lied. It wasn’t. They — they had issues with ethnicity, not with race, because most of the Nazis were white people, and most of the people they were attacking were white people. So to me, I’m thinking, how can you say it’s about race if you are fighting each other?”
She certainly can’t dig herself out of this one…
