Whoopie Goldberg’s Race Card and Ignorance

Pages: 1 2

The Left appoints itself as the moral authority on social issues despite the fact that all the social mores it promotes have undermined the American family, specifically the American black family.

Whenever conservatives dare to discuss solutions for children who grow up in environments where social programs have harmed single black mothers and they provide data disproving left-wing initiatives, leftists always go on the attack and further undermine those they purport to help by using the “racism” weapon.

A good example occurred last week when View co-host Whoopie Goldberg flew into a rage against presidential candidate Representative Michele Bachmann for signing a statement supporting traditional marriage and family called “The Marriage Vow.” This occurred against the backdrop of misleading facts hurled against Bachmann by the vitriolic View women, who were angered that the statement asked GOP candidates to support such things as banning same sex marriage and pornography, and preventing Sharia (Islamic) law from becoming part of American law.  However, one section of The Marriage Vow positively drove Whoopie Goldberg over the edge.

The first bullet point, which has since been removed by the Family Leader due to pressure from groups claiming the act is homophobic and supports slavery, noted the “disastrous impact slavery had on African-America families” during the 18th and 19th centuries.  Further noted was the damage created by 1960s Democratic policies that destroyed the traditional black family, which had persevered even during slavery.  These assertions in particular, while enraging Goldberg, happen to be true—70% of African-American babies are born to single parents today, a drastic departure from historical statistics.

Goldberg’s anger rests on the same unfounded accusations coming from the Left against Bachmann, who had no part in drafting the document. In fact, had Goldberg done her homework, she would have learned that Bachmann never signed the version of the document that contained the slavery statement.  Bachmann, who signed another document, told Fox News’ Sean Hannity: “[U]nder no circumstances would any child be better off growing up under slavery and that isn’t what I signed. That isn’t what I believe.”

Rather than give Bachmann the benefit of the doubt, Goldberg instead unleashed her venom against the congresswoman and white Americans, saying, “I’m starting to feel like there’s some kind of racial thing going around” —as if to imply that all white Americans are infected with a race virus. Infuriated over data confirmed by research in the Marriage Vow, Goldberg yelled:

Damn it, I am sick of this crap! Could you [white people] get your act together? You don’t know anything about how slaves raised their kids, or why people worked together. Just don’t add stuff that you don’t know what you’re talking about!

Goldberg’s anger worsened as she launched her personal defense of single mothers and their children, declaring that “some of us turned out okay with single parents…so stop pointing your fingers at single parents! I’m sick of people who don’t know what they’re talking about.” But this rant proved Goldberg knows absolutely nothing about Bachmann, who responded in a public e-mail explaining that her parents divorced when she was young and she “was raised by a single mother” and understands “firsthand the difficulties of growing up with one parent.”

    Ms Goldberg's anger is surpassed only by her ignorance, even as she accuses others of the same. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones, Whoopi. Don't you know that?

  • jasonz

    goldbers anger is fuled bythe fact she knows bachman is RIGHT. But she is white and conserv so she cannot be allowed to talk.

  • jaime

    The article states, "But this rant proved Goldberg knows absolutely nothing about Bachmann…." went too far. It should have read, "But this rant proved Goldberg knows absolutely nothing."

    She is hilarious when she does her one woman verbal "flash mob" thing for the world to see. No one takes this seriously deranged empty headed clown seriously. She is the Left's equivalent of a black Archie Bunker. But unlike the Bunker character, Goldberg is sincere in her ignorance.

    The elaborate language is not necessary.
    Black children born to single mothers are called “bastards”.

      Amen !!!

    She can take solace in the fact that, because of Sheila J. Lee, she is not the stupidest woman in America. Neither is she as funny. I've enjoyed her acting over the years. She should stick to what she knows instead of loudly (and often) proclaiming what she doesn't know. What an abject embarrassment she is.

    Now if only Bachmann wasn't already a traitor to the American people for voting to extend the Patriot Act……if not for that……I might defend her….

    Goldberg uses every excuse she can find to unleash her hatred of Whites! This calculated rage…and indeed it was manufactured…had nothing to do with "slavery". She was once again venting her hatred of Whites to a vast audience. She is" SICK of Whites talking about things they know nothing about"? Well, WE are sick of this BLACK who has gotten filthy rich from the money of us 'know-nothing ' whites telling us what trash WE are: trash who are too stupid to understand what hell slavery was! SHE is too ignorant to understand that WHITES, also, were in a form of slavery. She evidently never heard of INDENTURED SERVANTS, who were WHITE people. THEY were treated far worse than most slaves. I think Goldberg should study about different races and the hell THEY suffered, also! Get real, Goldberg…we are getting SICK of YOUR filthy, hate-filled screaming tirades!

    It is a real shame that we can’t disagree without resorting to calling names. Attack ideas – not people.
