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.

Hispanic Democrats ban term ‘Latinx’ used ‘to appease white rich progressives’

Lawmakers in Connecticut which are both Hispanic and Democrats, have proposed a new state law to ban the term “Latinx” from all government documents. The term is deemed offensive by the lawmakers who want to end the practice.

“I’m of Puerto Rican descent and I find it offensive,” Democratic state representative Geraldo Reyes told the Associated Press.

“The Spanish language, which is centuries old, defaults to Latino for everybody,” Reyes added. “It’s all-inclusive. They didn’t need to create a word, it already exists.”

Reyes is the bill’s chief sponsor, and was joined by four other Hispanic Democrats who are also members of then Black and Puerto Rican Caucus in the Connecticut Legislature.

The Connecticut lawmakers are not alone in their sentiment. In 2021, Democratic Representative Ruben Gallego of Arizona tweeted “When Latino politicos use the term it is largely to appease white rich progressives who think that is the term we use.” Gallego added that his office was not allowed to use the term in any official communications.  

National Review reports:

The same year, the League of United Latin American Citizens, the oldest community organization in the United States, declared it would no longer use Latinx. The term has also been rejected by Real Academia Española, a governing body that oversees the Spanish language.

While the term has been enthusiastically adopted by progressive academics and far-left activists, polling reveals it has not gained traction within the broader Hispanic population.

“The word Latino is incredibly exclusionary, both for women and for non-gender conforming people,” Maia Gil’adi, a professor at Boston University, told the AP. “And the term Latinx is really useful because of the way it challenges those conceptions.”
