A woman named Caryn Elaine Johnson who goes by the stage name “Whoopi Goldberg” informed her television viewers the other day on a program I’ve never seen called The View that “The Holocaust isn’t about race. No, it’s not about race.”
Whatever happened to the leftist trope that there’s no such thing as race? The left has rediscovered race and now it’s everywhere they look, except in the Holocaust. America is racist – systemically! – but the Nazi’s were not.
The Germans and Jews certainly thought the Holocaust was about race. When Nazi’s said “we will exterminate the Jewish race” and thereupon murdered over six million of them, the Jews took it personally. Go figure.
Whoopi’s co-hosts, though not the most informed crowd, tried to correct Whoopi. But they couldn’t change her “mind.” Whoopi instead dug her hole deeper. She Whoopi-splained that the Holocaust was merely “about two white groups of people.”
Criticism ensued from Jews including Holocaust survivors, the U.S. Holocaust Museum, and the Anti-Defamation League, and many non-Jews as well (but not “The Squad” of Democrat progs). They noted that the Nazi’s explicitly considered the Jews a different and inferior race, and many Jews themselves consider their culture different from typical white culture.
