Whoopi Goldberg Under Fire for Repeating Holocaust Remarks

Jewish activists and community members demanded Goldberg face termination from her daytime talk show over the weekend, after she doubled down on past Holocaust remarks, saying that the Holocaust wasn't a matter of race but "white-on-white violence".

Goldberg's controversial statement came amid an interview promoting her new movie. “My best friend said, ‘not for nothing is there no box on the census for the Jewish race. So that leads me to believe that we’re probably not a race,'” Goldberg told UK media.

“It wasn’t originally” about race, Goldberg continued, saying the Nazis also killed people they believed to be “mentally defective.”

Goldberg said it was wrong to use the Nazi definition that they considered Jews a race. “The oppressor is telling you what you are. Why are you believing them? They’re Nazis. Why believe what they’re saying?” she insisted.

The comments occurred just 10 months after Goldberg was suspended from the daytime talk show for insisting that the Holocaust was "not about race." She showed little remorse for her past statement, arguing again that the estimated 6 million Jews who were systematically killed in the Holocaust were not targeted based on their race.

She also claimed that the Nazis targeted people of African descent in addition to Jews, because they were physically different. Furthermore, she suggested that Jews had an easier time blending in with white people and hiding from the Nazis than black people did at the time of the Holocaust. (JPost / VFI News)
