Recently back from her suspension for claiming the holocaust wasn’t about race, Whoopi Goldberg let another whopper fly on The View Tuesday, even surprising her nutty viewers with the claim that since electing Donald Trump, America has been “tipping towards the way the Taliban deals with stuff.”
One person who was in complete agreement was co-host Joy Behar, who thought that America deals with things the same way as the Taliban when it comes to “voting rights in particular.”
“Those people don’t rest. They are always up there trying to get stuff, our abortion rights, all these women’s rights we have,” Goldberg responded.
“I got to say, you know, I told you all this when you-know-who got elected. Remember I said it feels like we could be tipping towards the way the Taliban deals with stuff,” Goldberg said. “Do you remember what you said to me? ‘I would not go that far. This is America.’ And I believe — I know people don’t understand it, but I also believe that we are much stronger than people realize, certainly much stronger than the Republicans realize. Because every bad move that you-know-who made, the Constitution said, ‘I’m sorry, you can’t do that.’ So, it is always going to be a challenge.”
“It’s always going to be a challenge. That’s because we, those of us of a certain age, kind of thought we were handing off doing the right thing to the next generation, forgetting that we have to stay vigilant. This is — you know, people coming for democracy do not rest and people trying to arrest our rights.”
Whoopi concluded, “When people say you’re woke, I say I was never asleep. You cannot sleep.”
