Skip to comments.Whoopi Goldberg's vulgar performance: Mychal Massie blasts entertainer for filthy attack

"Values is not part of a political slogan. Values are what's inside you." With that comment presidential hopeful John Kerry launched into another diatribe about what sets him and President Bush apart.
Not that anyone has ever accused Kerry of being the brightest bulb in the box one would think him politically savvy enough to think that statement through in the aftermath of his Radio City Music Hall fund-raiser with Whoopi Goldberg. But in his case, it is hubris before intelligence.
When last seen before Kerry's fund-raiser, Whoopi Goldberg was on a street corner in Washington, D.C., brandishing a coat hanger, claiming it to be representative of back-alley abortions. I submit her coat hanger is representative of any abortion clinic, hospital or doctor which performs such horrific procedures, but I digress.
Fast forwarding to last week, there was Whoopi Goldberg again, in front of ardent supporters, spewing forth vulgar, sexually explicit comparisons between President Bush and female genitalia. And while Goldberg was by no means the only maniac from Hollywood bent on besting one another's obscenities, I find her's the most deplorable. But I get ahead of myself.
At the conclusion of the sewage-filled evening, Kerry told the audience it had been "an extraordinary evening" and "every performer ... [had] conveyed to [them] the heart and soul of our country." I am profoundly offended by Kerry's foolish and base support of such filth and America, you should be, too.
What type of future does Kerry envision for America if he applauds the rawest of trash as "the heart and soul of our country"? How does Kerry view the voters, his church, the family and education if he postulates those things as "values inside you"? To laughingly support such an extraordinarily tasteless, vulgar, public display, one must ask not only how Kerry views the office of president, but exactly what respect has he for himself?
It is one thing to attack President Bush based on ideas, but Kerry being void of any simply engages in ipse dixit. The problem with that position is it accuses, but never supports such accusations with facts nor does it offer viable alternatives.
It is perfectly right for the liberal elites to attack the president with valid facts and objections. But it is base and immoral to attempt to insult my intelligence with lies, filth and empty promises. I am insulted when their best reason to remove President Bush is their visceral hatred of him. I ask you: Where is the substance in that platform? Where is the substance in comments by Jessica Lange calling the administration, "a self-serving regime of deceit, hypocrisy and belligerence"?
I continue to be amazed that she and her ilk saw nothing wrong with Bill Clinton's sexual abuse and abuse of authority pursuant to Monica Lewinsky; they saw nothing wrong with Clinton's blatant finger wagging to the nation, his staff and the world; they saw nothing wrong with Clinton using his office to have congressmen blindly and foolishly support him in lying to the country; they saw nothing wrong with the disgraceful way he disrespected and shamed his child, his wife and another human being. Yet, they see everything wrong with President Bush protecting us from the terror that Clinton should have confronted.
Paul Newman claimed the president's tax cuts were "borderline criminal." Based on what pray tell? Not everyone is as filthy rich as he is some of us warm to the idea of government giving some of our money back to us.
Kerry's running mate, John Edwards, lauded Goldberg's debauchery with "This campaign will be a celebration of real American values." America should be asking: "On what level?"
But I am most offended by the elite liberals' tacit use of a foolish black woman. Of all the people to behave so unrepresentative of American values, it is a disgrace to the black community for that person to be black. With the conditional support of that audience, Goldberg shamed an entire class of Americans who fought to overcome Jim Crowism and its overt hatred.
I would ask if Whoopi Goldberg's behavior is what the Rev. Martin Luther King died for? Is it representative of Frederick Douglas or George Washington Carver or for black performers who were forbidden to perform or to stay where they performed? Is Goldberg's ugliness what they suffered for?
Is Goldberg's monkey show before the white, liberal organ grinders what people suffered beatings, fire hoses and dogs for? After you have answered those questions, I ask you: Are the values of Kerry-Edwards what you want in the White House?
The answer is obvious, isn't it?
After looking it up, I can now agree that the entire Democrat line is one big "ipse dixit."
Not even Cosby supports this vulgarity. You don't have to go back to MLK Jr., etc.
Yes, it is the case with everything Kerry says at any time. Pompous ass.
My mind transposes these words... what is Clinton wagging at the world?
This is a great article. I would love to get a copy of the entire text of what was said at this event.
Thanks for bumping the thread, my friend.
OW! That one makes my eyes water.
I like this writer more and more. Thanks for posting!
Absoulutely. Every argument they make if chock full of 'it's true because I said it's true' statements.
GOP strategists should get a tape of the filthy segments, bleep out the bad words, and put them in a commercial. Followed of course by Kerry saying "all these performers" represent the heart and soul of America.
Followed by 10 seconds of silence with the word on the screen ... "Really"
To paraphrase Laura Ingraham: "Shut Up & Act".
I can't argue one iota against the substance of anything this guy said, EXCEPT -
There is no need whatsoever to bring Whoopies skin color into this. Her being black is not a problem. Her being black is not even a consideration.
Whoopi is a trash talker. He speech is vulgar and irresponsible and a few other descriptive connotations I haven't thought of yet.
But being black and accusing her of dragging her race down is a stupid argument to justify her vulgarity.
This is potential political dynamite. If someone could get film of Kerry dancing in the aisles while this bilge was being spilled onstage, it could be as effective as the image of Dukakis driving that tank.
Kerry is handing Bush and the Republicans things they can readily hammer him with. Will they have the guts to use it? Even if they do, will it make a difference with the sheeple given the spirit of the age? Your guess is as good as mine.
Followed by 10 seconds of silence with the word on the screen ... "Really"
Like it. Bump for RNC :)
And what Whoopi said was so vulgur it can't even be put in "quotes".
Would it make a difference if you knew that the author is himself black? (click link at top of article)
Then it would kind of lead back to what Bill Cosby was saying. No it would not make it better. If whites are not to treat blacks with that kind of disrespect then why should blacks go around disrespecting themselves, pulling themselves down in the eyes of others, and it be ok? It is wrong when whites do it to them and it is wrong when they do it to themselves.
The catchphrase "Black is Beautiful" disappeared when Whoopie came on the scene.
