Yesterday, on The View, in addition to their generally ignorant rantings and ravings, Whoopi Goldberg added this little gem about how the Nazis – yes, Hitler's Nazis – weren't racist because Jews are white people.
The Holocaust isn't about race. No, it's not about race.
But 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. You're missing the point. The minute you turn it into race it goes down this alley.
Let's talk about what it is. It's about how people treat each other, it's a problem. It doesn't matter if you're black or white because black, white, Jews: everybody eats each other...
I'm sorry, what?
So, the Nazis weren't racist because Jews are white??
What level of ignorant do you have to be to believe this stuff?
Jesse Watters had Ben Shapiro on, and you can bet he had some thoughts on Whoopi's ignorant comments.
He explains this CRT insanity further in this epic tweet thread.
Yeah, Whoopi was called out on this, so she went on Colbert for damage control.
But somehow, she just doubled down and made things worse.
Colbert: Have you come to understand the Nazis saw it as race? Because asking the Nazis they would say "yes, it's a racial issue."
Whoopi: Well, see this is what's interesting to me, because the Nazis lied. It wasn't.
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?" This wasn't racial, this was about white-on-white...
So, once again, don't write me anymore, I know how you feel. Don't write me anymore, I know. I get it. And, uh, I'm going to take your word for it and never bring it up again.
The sarcasm at the end is just unbelievable.
She doesn't apologize. She doesn't even say she was wrong.
She just re-explains herself in an even worse way and shrugs it off with a "whatever, I'll just stop talking about it."
