The Matter: Whoopi Goldberg apologized once more for her declare that the Holocaust “wasn’t about race.”

Simply because Whoopi makes use of the final title “Goldberg” doesn’t suggest she understands something in regards to the Jewish individuals or the Holocaust (“One other Whoopsie, one other apology,” December 28).

Her statements show that she has completely no thought what this era in historical past is all about. It is time for her to teach herself earlier than she speaks. It was additionally about time she referred to as herself “Caryn Johnson” once more.

As for Whoopi Goldberg and her Holocaust remark throughout a London interview, which she now must “clarify” once more – perhaps she ought to undertake a line from Hamilton: “Speak much less, smile extra.”

The time has come to take “The View” off the air. Its stars should take a category on the Holocaust.

The White Home states that white nationalists are the most important menace. Properly, transfer on, as a result of “The View” acquired them beat.

The place is the outrage for this anti-Semitic present? Whoopi Goldberg & Co. should be cancelled. This isn’t their first offense. They decrease the extermination of greater than 6 million individuals, brutally murdered by a fascist regime.

That anybody can take these clucking hens significantly exhibits you the way silly the general public is.

Apparently Whoopi Goldberg has no built-in management to guard her from making silly, offensive and terribly uneducated statements, particularly about Jews and Nazis.

Apart from, however much less necessary, she is a impolite loudmouth. That is finest demonstrated by the quote attributed to her in your article.

That she is paraded day by day on a nationally broadcast tv present and launched to the general public speaks volumes for the way far requirements of decency have declined. There’s actually nothing else that may be stated.

Ought to we assist freedom of speech? Sure. However do you agree with this unhappy, deluded, mendacity fraud and permit her to spew her anti-Semitic nonsense? No.

The Matter: Stories that greater than 2,000 millionaires have moved out of New York after the pandemic hit.

In the event you suppose wealthy New Yorkers are working away from taxes, you are fallacious (“E$head from NY,” December 28).

As occurred within the late 60’s and early 70’s, they’re leaving because of the deterioration of the standard of life, dangerous faculties and horrible visitors as a result of bike racks, sidewalk eateries and different concessions to the bike riders.

The specter of congestion pricing can be an insult to those that drive, and they’re normally the excessive earners. There are lots of causes apart from taxes.

The remedy for New York’s shrinking inhabitants is to carve New York off as its personal state and name it Previous Amsterdam.

This opens the opportunity of the creation of an appropriate authorities and insurance policies of the remainder of the individuals of the state, with out the novel insurance policies generated by nearly all of the inhabitants and management within the 5 small cities.

For starters, training, enterprise growth and therapy of recent and smart management would breathe life into this state, which is on life assist. Underneath this state of affairs, individuals would keep.
