I invite intellectually dishonest white comedians Mitchell and Webb to examine the latest Numberwang Anti-semitism claims. Goldberg said that the holocaust revealed not the horrors of racism but of man's inhumanity to man.
She was told off and it was alleged by the Numberwangers that this was anti-semitic - so she said that she was wrong and that the holocaust reveals BOTH of those things - this was not acceptable to the Numberwangers who wanted to deny that the holocaust teaches us that anyone, jews, muslims, black people, brown people, white people, can be inhuman to others, and that these terrible things have to be challenged by facing up to man's inhumanity to man.
The numberwangers do not wish to admit, ultimately, that Hitler's extermination of jews was part of something which goes beyond that which requires just demonising white Germans and putting jews on pedestals - Primo Levi himself mentioned that Palestinians were to jews what jews were to Hitler, to quite an extent, and that was back in Levi's day, imagine what he'd say now.
Golderg annoyed them by continuing to maintain that AS WELL as showing us the horrors of racism the holocaust showed us the horrors of "man's inhumanity to man" - and warned us against, ultimately, such awful things as Guantanamo bay, Israel's treatment of many Palestinians, the actions of Boko Haram, of Osama bin Laden, of Tommy Robinson (a great fan of Israel), of Rupert Murdoch, etc etc.
Because Goldberg stuck to her guns, WHILST ADMITTING THAT THE HOLOCAUST ALSO SHOWS US THE HORRORS OF 'RACISM' (and bear in mind race isn't even a real thing, whereas man's inhumanity to man is), and continued to maintain the view that the Holocaust of jews by Hitler shows us a glimpse of other crimes, the way millions of Africans were treated by Europeans and others during the massive era of the slave trade, the way Babylonians treated slaves, the way Romans treated slaves, the crimes of Genghis Khan, the crimes of Modi's India, the British in India, the British in Africa, the Europeans in 'the Americas' - all of this stuff is awful and criminal and the Numberwangers obviously don't want to think about that or face it, they tend to be imperialist racist tossers. Ironic really, that such tossers go around pretending they are entitled to call anyone they pick 'anti-semitic' - in much the same way Robert Webb's character says "that's numberwang" in the famous sketch. Ironic that Webb himself has been "groomed" to hate Corbyn and call Corbyn and anti-semite in the same way Webb's character calls things 'numberwang'.
So, let's see: to say that the American slave trade was not about race but about man's inhumanity to man, would be true: the people who were slaves were from assorted 'skin colouring groupings'. To say that the attack on Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria and others was not about Islamophobia but man's inhumanity to man would be true, the victims were from all religions, even if mainly muslim, and the perpetrators including many muslim states like Saudi, ultimately islamophobia was the glue which held the imperial incursions together, but what happened there was a far deeper sin than something with as few dimensions as islamophobia or hatred of muslims. Rape, is not the suffering of women. Many victims of rape are men, and on top of that the cause of rape is to do with the morality of society in its totality, not just of the male contingent. As you can see, in all these examples I myself would consistently side with Goldberg's statement. What she said sounds like something Picard would say, indeed. People would not try to perceive 'jew hatred' in it if he had said it, naturally. It is their hatred of black women they are showing, most offensively, when criticising Goldberg for what she said. Her sensitive 'apology' was a very dignified and decent response. Perhaps they should try to learn at least THAT from her, these numpties making offensive statements about what she said which is the same message holocaust survivor Primo Levi expressed in his writing, indeed.
In green for now, David Baddiel adds his foolish bullshit to the Whoopi Goldberg hysteria:
David Baddiel has responded to Whoopi Goldberg's apology after the actress declared the Holocaust ‘wasn't about race' on The View.
Around six million people were murdered by Hitler's regime in Nazi Germany during World War II and his hatred of Jewish people stemmed from Nazis believing themselves to be an Aryan 'master race'.
Whoopi, 66, said on the US talk show: 'Let's be truthful about it because Holocaust isn't about race. It's not about race. It's not about race. It's about man's inhumanity to man.
'These are two white groups of people! The minute you turn it into race it goes down this alley. Let's talk about it for what it is. It's how people treat each other. It doesn't matter if you're Black or white, Jews, it's each other.'
Comedian David, who released the book Jews Don't Count in 2021, said he 'accepted the statement she's already made reconsidering what she said about race and the Holocaust on TV' and shared an extract from his book, which explains anti-Jewish racism.
Part of the extract read:
'Racists who don't like Jews never ask the Jew they are abusing how often they go to synagogue. They just see the Jewish name and they know. Which is why it's racism. One's Jewishness, just like one's skin colour, is an accident of birth, and as far as the racists are concerned — and they, sadly, are the people that matter as far as racism goes — you can never lose either.'
He clearly is too primitive to comprehend what she's talking about. It's sad to see such an ignorant brainless white jew imagining he's not a moron just because he's a celebrity and he's white and jewish. Actual intelligent white and jewish people may well find Baddiel's comments far too offensive at this late stage of the present day disaster facing the world, vis a vis racism, imperialism, genocide, etc.
How is what he's saying in any way an appropriate response to the statement that the holocaust of Jews by hitler was an issue of man's inhumanity to man not simply some skin colour contest? How is she belittling the plight of those jews? That he pretends she is is part of Baddiel's basic racism/xenophobia.
He's trying to suggest that in reality what matters is not that in order to gain and dominate one group of humans abused another, he's saying what matters is that that particular group on that occasion was mostly jewish and that we should always remember to never kill jews. I think her point, that we shouldn't abuse others, whether we are 'black' or 'white', 'jewish' or 'christian' or 'atheist' or 'hindu' or 'muslim'(as far as I know agnostics never abuse anyone, in case it's definitely immoral) (sorry Baddiel, I know you're the comedian, but nothing you say is funny so I have to make up for it a bit here) (do accept my apology), is a valid point and Baddiel is just attacking her because he seems to think he's superior to black people or something - there's no other way to explain his psychosis other than latent xenophobia. Not so 'latent' to 'the others' he sees as 'others'.
In fact when you see Baddiel chatting this shit, you realise he's obsessed with jewishness and jews and barely notices the rest of the planet.
Additionally: compare Whoopi Goldberg's nuanced sound statement with that Labour/Libdem woman who said "it's not just about people with funny tinges" - and they claimed she 'mis-spoke' - did Baddiel call her out? Because unlike Goldberg, that 'funny tinges' woman said something genuinely racist/xenophobic. What do you say about that Baddiel? Did you call her out? Do you admit she's xenophobic? Obviously you're too stupid to see how offensive and xenophobic your remarks about Goldberg's statement are, but can you see that the 'funny tinges' woman said something racist which you should have called out, it was your business to, but you didn't I presume, after all your xenophobia shines through. I think your colleague Mitchell's remark was to wonder why that woman didn't "stick to the script" - which in a way is Mitchell admitting to being part of a racist "bell-end" culture/society (the term 'bell-end' is one his buddy Webb enjoyed labelling Mr Corbyn - if anyone here has to decide whether to spend any money or time on Mitchell and Webb, well, remember that Webb likes to call Corbyn a "bell end").
Baddiel is a British xenophobe so his U.S. history is rusty - someone needs to educate him about jewish slave traders in America - whether a white slave owner was jewish or non-jewish may not be so relevant when looking at man's inhumanity to man in this form: https://www.haaretz.com/us-news/.premium.MAGAZINE-slave-owners-confederates-and-wrestlers-jews-of-the-u-s-south-in-the-showcase-1.9928841
Somebody made the following Jimmy Carr 'joke' go viral in order to demonstrate, it seems, what Whoopi is talking about which jackass xenophobes like Baddiel and his mates (including Carr) need to learn: << Carr said: "When people talk about the Holocaust, they talk about the tragedy and horror of 6 million Jewish lives being lost to the Nazi war machine. But they never mention the thousands of Gypsies that were killed by the Nazis. No one ever wants to talk about that, because no one ever wants to talk about the positives." The statement prompted laughter and clapping from the audience. >>
