What She Said?
However, she finally admitted that the Holocaust was in fact a race issue. Because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews an inferior race.
“She said that the Holocaust was not about race. As well as it was instead about man’s inhumanity to man. But it is indeed a race issue because Hitler and the Nazis considered Jews to be an inferior race,” she said.
When Goldberg appeared on a late-night TV show hours after first apologising Monday. She says “Words matter, and mine are no exception.”
Please accept sincere apologies for any offence cause by my erroneous statements. “She stand with the Jewish people, too,” she told her audience on Tuesday night.
Despite her outburst on Monday’s show “upsetting so many people. Which was never my intention,” Goldberg says, “She accept full responsibility for her actions.”
Critics who “helped me understand” her “painful error” are to be “deeply, deeply grateful,” she said.
In the wake of the on-air apology, some ABC insiders have told Page Six that there are calls for Goldberg to be fired from the show.
Defamation League chief executive Jonathan Greenblatt was invited to appear on the show. For showing her how wrong she had been.
“Whoopi, there’s no doubt that the Holocaust was about race,” Greenblatt told her.
‘The Jews undoubtedly are a race, but they are not human’ is a quote from Hitler on the first page of the book you were talking about yesterday, Whoopi,” the man told her.
Hitlers And Ideologies
“Hitler’s ideology was based on the premise that the Jews were a lower form of humanity. Anti-Semitism that had been “racialized” was the problem, he explained.
Jewish people have persecute and kill throughout history because of the widespread belief. That they were not only a different race but also a different religion.
In addition to Whoopi’s platform, “anti-Semitism is still a clear and present danger,” he stated.
Among the reasons he cited for Jewish people “feeling besieged again” was the recent 10-hour siege at a Texas synagogue.
Both extreme right-wing extremism and extreme left-wing liberalism pose a threat to Jews, he said. In fact, “Jews are concerned.”
“It’s time to bring these issues of anti-Semitism to the forefront every day,” he told Goldberg and her co-hosts.
“I guess I don’t count—everyone thinks I’m Jewish, but I’m not,” quipped Joy Behar.
During a discussion on “The View” about Tennessee school district’s decision to ban “Maus,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning graphic novel about a Holocaust survivor, Goldberg first argued that the Holocaust went beyond race.
The Holocaust was not motivated by a person’s race. Repeatedly, Goldberg said, “No, it’s not about race.” This is about human cruelty to fellow human beings.
After she tweeted an apology, she tried to justify her outburst on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” by repeating some of the same claims.
“The vast majority of Nazis were white, and the vast majority of their victims were white. When Colbert asked her if she thought the fight was “racial,” she replied, “I’m thinking, ‘How can you say it’s about race if you’re fighting each other?'”
I think of race as something that I can see because I am black,” she had said to Colbert.
