BEING A CELEBRITY DOESN’T AUTOMATICALLY MAKE YOU SMART
This is a conversation between Bill O’Reilly and Whoopi Goldberg, so just follow along. From Media Research Center(MRC), we have this headline…Whoopi Goldberg Doesn't Believe Japanese Attacked Pearl Harbor, Thinks Muslims More Persecuted Than Jews, by Noel Sheppard, November 24, 2010 and he says…Whoopi Goldberg on Tuesday demonstrated an absolutely staggering ignorance concerning a variety of subjects. Appearing on Fox News's "O'Reilly Factor," Goldberg admitted not knowing what a madrasa is, said it wasn't the Japanese that attacked
America at Pearl Harbor, and claimed Muslims in are
more persecuted than Jews. BILL
O'REILLY, Host: Do you believe in the world, we have a Muslim problem? WHOOPI
GOLDBERG: No. GOLDBERG: Bill, do you think that the people in America Pakistan, the people who live in , the
poor people, the people who don't have any say, you think they don't want help
to help the West? O'REILLY: A lot of them don't. The madrasa -- do you know
what a madrasa is? GOLDBERG: No, I don't. O'REILLY: OK. Madrasa is a school
that teaches Islamic jihad and there are madrasas all over the Muslim world.
They teach 4 and 5-year-old kids to hate people. GOLDBERG: Bill, that may be true -- O'REILLY: It is true.
GOLDBERG: It may be true. I can't prove it. O'REILLY: I can. GOLDBERG: You've
clearly been to them and I will take your word for it. But that does not change
the fact that when you paint all Muslims with one brush, it's bad. O'REILLY:
I'm not painting all Muslims with one brush. GOLDBERG: But when you say Muslims
killed us, when you don't specify. It's like saying whenever I see black men
coming down the street, I'm scared. That's the same -- O'REILLY: Do you have a
problem in history when you were taught about World War II that Japanese attacked us? Do you have a
problem with that? GOLDBERG: I have a problem with that. O'REILLY: Do you? GOLDBERG: Yes. O'REILLY: But
they attacked us? GOLDBERG: Sorry, the
air force did. O’REILLY: You understand my point? The Japanese air force
attacked us on December 7, 1941, NOT the Japanese? Goldberg apparently has "a problem"
saying it was the Japanese because all of that nation's people weren't on the
planes that morning! But there's still
more: O'REILLY: We have a Muslim problem in the world in the sense that 90
percent of the terrorism. Come from that
area. GOLDBERG: You know what? What do you mean 90 percent of the terrorists…
GOLDBERG: -- are from everywhere. They are white. O'REILLY: No, predominantly
they are Muslims. Right now, everybody
can say the Muslims are the terrorists. Two years ago, it was the white people
that were the terrorists. O'REILLY: What white people? GOLDBERG: Oh, wasn't it
white people that blew up Pakistan ? O'REILLY: Yes, two of them. Two of them.
GOLDBERG: We disagree on this. O'REILLY: But I just want to be clear. GOLDBERG:
And it's OK. O'REILLY: We have to have these discussions. GOLDBERG: We must
have these discussions. O'REILLY: Right. But I just want to be clear and I'll
give you the last word on this and then we'll get to your book. GOLDBERG: OK.
O'REILLY: I believe there is a Muslim problem in the world. GOLDBERG: OK.
O'REILLY: And that's what I was trying to get across to you guys on "The
View." GOLDBERG: Right. O'REILLY: That 70 percent of Americans believe the
way I do. They thought it was inappropriate to make a Muslim community center
that close to Ground Zero. That was my point. GOLDBERG: I understood your
point. What did I not understand and I will just reiterate it again because --
O'REILLY: I just left out the word terrorist. GOLDBERG: Yes. Because in this
day and age when kids are getting their butts kicked because they are Muslim,
OK? O'REILLY: Not so much. GOLDBERG: Bill, are you kidding me? O'REILLY: New
study today, Jews in Oklahoma
are far more likely to be persecuted than Muslims, just came out today.
GOLDBERG: You know what? I'm sure that someone believes that, but I believe
that in neighborhoods where they don't want Muslims, they beat up kids.” She's
sure someone believes that? Well, I don't know what new report O'Reilly was
talking about, but as NewsBusters reported in August, according to the FBI,
Jews in 2008 were victims of hate crimes ten times as much as Muslims. Alas,
such facts are unimportant to Goldberg, for she believes anything she wants
regardless of all the inconvenient truths out there. Of course, that is her
right. After all, ignorance is bliss. But that she has a national platform like
ABC's "The View," with over 3.5 million viewers on a daily basis, to
spread this ignorance is deeply disturbing.
Folks, Whoopi Goldberg whose real
name is Caryn Elaine Johnson and who
took her first name from the famous whoopee cushion, and took the name Goldberg
because it might sound better in Hollywood, is about as full of
something-or-other as that famous cushion.
She, and many, many, other celebrities would do better to keep their
political thoughts, or any thoughts, to themselves, lest they be shown to be
idiots…as she is. America
