The Facts

  • Whoopi Goldberg has returned to The View following a two-week suspension for claiming the Holocuast wasn't about race.

  • Her words sparked widespread backlash, as critics argued that Nazi doctrine defined Jews as a different race.


The Spin

Left narrative

Goldberg -- who's own background is Jewish -- has highlighted a growing and concerning level of ignorance about the Holocaust. Her comments were particularly insensitive given rising anti-semitism around the world.

Right narrative

Goldberg's insidious comments reflect the effect of the left's intersectional doctrine in downplaying the minority status of Jews and justifying anti-semitism.
