Whoopi Goldberg Doubles Down on Claim the Holocaust Wasn’t ‘Racial,’ Calling It ‘White on White’ Violence

After causing an uproar the first time around, comedian and TV host Whoopi Goldberg again claimed the Holocaust was not racial in nature but was an example of “white on white” violence, because both Nazis and Jews are white people.

Goldberg was suspended from her job co-hosting “The View” for two weeks earlier this year over similar remarks during one episode.

During an interview with the Sunday Times over the weekend, Goldberg lamented the outcry her comments generated back then, and defended herself saying the claim that Jews were not the victims of racism during the Holocaust was factually correct.

“Remember who they were killing first. They were not killing racial; they were killing physical. They were killing people they considered to be mentally defective. And then they made this decision,” she said.

When the interviewer countered Nazis did not view the Jews as white people but rather as a subhuman race, Goldberg responded by saying, “Yes, but that’s the killer, isn’t it?”

“The oppressor is telling you what you are,” she continued.” 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,” she said.

“You could find me. You couldn’t find them. That was the point I was making,” she said, before going on to suggest that the outrage had been disproportionate. But you would have thought that I’d taken a big old stinky dump on the table, butt naked.”

In an episode of “The View” in January, Goldberg “the Holocaust isn’t about race,” but was an example of “man’s inhumanity to man.”

As Breitbart News reported, she then turned to her co-hosts and called on them to be “truthful” about the Holocaust, and admit that Jews and Nazis “are two white groups of people.”

Goldberg, who changed her name to sound Jewish despite having no Jewish ancestry, later issued an on-air apology, stating “words matter” and that she “stands with the Jewish people.”

Shortly after the scandal broker, however, she appeared on Steven Colbert’s “The Late Show” and seemed to walk back her apology. Goldberg told Colbert:

The Nazis lied. 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?’ So, it all really began because I said, ‘How will we explain to children what happened in Nazi Germany?’ I said, ‘This wasn’t racial, this was about white on white.’ And everybody said, ‘No, no, no, it was racial,’ and so that’s what this all came from.

Goldberg’s choice to double down on the claim both with Colbert and in the more recent Sunday Times interview suggests her apology was insincere. SOURCE

Any further commentary by this writer on Whoopi Goldberg is truly unnecessary. Her words speak volumes.



A Joy Unspeakable

by William Oldham

“…Looking unto Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has set down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2

          Christ came into this world to do the will of His Father, which was to bring salvation to fallen sinners; the Father’s will was perfectly accomplished by Jesus’ death and resurrection. In wholly giving Himself to His Father’s will, there was a great reward promised Jesus in doing so, and in this passage of Scripture it is referred to as, “The joy that was set before Him.”

          No doubt that there was great joy in Jesus being set down at the right hand of the throne of God and being given, “All authority in heaven and on earth.” But the joy given Jesus extends way beyond His position and His name as Lord. It embraces a race of people given to Him as an inheritance: a multitude which cannot be numbered; spirit-born from every nation, tribe and tongue on the face of this earth.

          These people were heathens and sinners, without God and without hope in this world; but God, in great mercy, sent His Son into this world to offer Himself as a perfect sacrifice for them, and transform them into a holy nation, a royal priesthood, a chosen people who would be a praise unto God. And God gave these people to Jesus as His inheritance—His family. And this joy was promised to Him long before He was born.

“…The Lord has said to me, You are My Son, Today I have begotten You. Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations for your inheritance, and the ends of the earth for your possession.” Psalm 2:7-8

          As for the people that have been given to Jesus as His inheritance, they too have a joy set before them. A hymn was published in 1900 that perfectly describes the joy that belongs to those who believe in Christ. It is called “Joy Unspeakable.” The song speaks of four things that fill up the joy of Christians: freedom, salvation, hope, and glory.

          The first stanza talks about freedom. Before Jesus came into my heart, I was bound up in sin. I always carried with me condemnation and a guilty conscience, and a fear of dying and going to hell. I was religious but lost. One night, Jesus came to me and set me free from all my guilt, condemnation, and fear of death. He replaced my fears with a freedom and a joy unspeakable.

          The second stanza talks about salvation. After Jesus came into my heart, I began reading the Bible, and I couldn’t stop. The Bible told me everything I should have been told the first thirty years of my life. It told me of the love of God and Christ. It told me that I am His child now and forever; it told me Jesus is preparing a place for me and is coming after me one day. Saved! And I know that I am—O what joy fills my heart!

          The third stanza speaks of hope. I don’t see or hear Jesus. But the Bible is filled with His wonderful promises to those who believe in Jesus; and it is in those promises of God that I hope, and they fill me with a joy unspeakable!

          The fourth stanza speaks of glory. One day Jesus is coming for His inheritance; and when He does, He will clothe us in glorious new bodies that are immortal and incorruptible. Jesus will take us with Him to our new home where we will live with Him and the Father forever—O what joy!

The chorus says it all: “It is joy unspeakable and full of glory, full of glory, full of glory; it is joy unspeakable and full of glory. O, the half has never yet been told.”
