Whoopi Goldberg has officially received her punishment for her insensitive Holocaust comments: two weeks suspension. Her consequences have sparked intense debate over whether suspension is a harsh enough response from the network, as well as anger as to why it took over two days for ABC to make the decision at all.

Goldberg said the Holocaust was “not about race” but rather “man’s inhumanity to man.” She also said it was “two white groups of people.”

The New York Post reports ABC insiders insist her apology came too late and have demanded she be fired. The outlet added that Goldberg’s co-hosts Sunny Hostin, Joy Behar and Ana Navarro are furious that she was suspended because she is a “lifelong ally to the Jewish community” and it was “an incredibly unfortunate incident.”

However, Holocaust survivors and their families have come out in droves to confront Goldberg with her rhetoric. Sami Steigmann was sent to a labor camp with his parents in 1940 and was subjected to inhumane “medical experiments” for the Nazis.

Steigmann told Fox News “Someone of her stature has to be extremely careful to use the proper language and not to perpetuate false narratives.” He added “I’m extremely disappointed in her for making such as stupid comment. I don’t know the motive for why she said it, but the damage has been done.”

    Perhaps the Woopie should be put in a Chinese Concentration Camp for a couple of years. The experience might educate her.

    Whoopi can’t possibly be that ignorant for a lack of a better term. I know based on the medias record had it been a Conservative, they would blow this up & destroy the individual until they were fired & moved away!! It shows how ÷ we are. This needs to stop and parents need to monitor your children closely! Peace

    Whoopi could make a gesture of contrition by giving back the Jewish name she appropriated and begin using the name she was born with…Johnson. As for the silly first name Whoopi, she can keep that since asking her to take back the name Caryn might be too much.

    Maybe this gal never took a class or read a textbook on World History.

The head of a radical organization in favor of the Cuban regime and that also openly supports the Hamas terrorist group in New York, was arrested Tuesday after the NYPD evicted an anti-Israel camp at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in Manhattan.

A video posted by The People’s Forum (TPF) on X, formerly Twitter, depicts Manolo De Los Santos, executive director of TPF, an anti-Israel organization that sympathizes with the Chinese Communist Party, was arrested by several NYPD officers wearing riot helmets near the institute’s campus on West 27th Street.

On April 29, more than 100 masked activists met in Manhattan at the office of the TPF, an organization backed by American businessman Neville Roy Singham, a self-proclaimed socialist known for financially supporting left-wing causes, to plan their next moves, while protests Anti-Israel protests reach a fever pitch across the country, reports ADN America.

Manolo De Los Santos urged the group to “give Joe Biden a hot summer” and “make it unsustainable for politics as usual in this country.” Likewise, he asked to recreate “the summer of 2020,” in reference to the violence that besieged major cities in the United States months after the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, according to the Washington Free Beacon.

A few hours after the meeting was called, dozens of protesters illegally broke into Columbia University’s Hamilton Hall and gained entry through a glass-paneled door that one of those involved broke with a hammer.

Police arrived at the scene after being called by Columbia President Minouche Shafik. In total, 44 people were arrested, including two university staff members and 13 “outsiders” who were not affiliated with the school, Columbia confirmed in a news release Thursday.

The People’s Forum, an organization that describes itself as “a movement incubator for working class and marginalized communities,” has been a mainstay of anti-Israel protests since Hamas’ attack on the Jewish state on October 7, 2023.
