Whoopi Goldberg Defends Vick
wsbtv.com ^ | 9/4/2007 | wsbtv.com

Posted on 09/04/2007 9:37:46 AM PDT by Red in Blue PA

NEW YORK -- Whoopi Goldberg started her stint on ABC's "The View" Tuesday by coming to the defense of convicted felon Michael Vick.

Just 15 minutes into the show she brought up Vick's conviction on dogfighting charges.

"You know from his background this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," said Goldberg.

"There are certain things that are indicative to certain parts of our country."

Co-host Joy Behar seemed shocked at Goldberg's statements.

"How about dog torture and dog murdering," Behar asked.

Perhaps she was trying to say "endemic."

Like lynchings, Ms. Goldberg?

Well, it sounds like Whoopi will be out there stirring up controversy in her own way. So she says that we should feel sorry for Michael Vick and that it’s part of the “culture” of who? Black youth from the streets? Black people in general? Rural people, black rural people?

You know from his background this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from

Classic soft bigotry: we heard it about Willie Nelson and now we're hearing it about Vick. "These poor people can't be expected to abide by the same laws as everyone else, you heartless brutes."

It’s also part of the culture of serial murderers to kill often, with zest and vigor. Who are we to question?

I am not sure if there is a defense for dog fighting but if there is one, I will allow a liberal moron like Whoopi try to make it, but the problem for Vick goes way beyond the dogfighting. In his indictment, a professional dogfighter wondered why torture the dogs you want to dispose of, wouldn’t it be better just to shoot them. Which is to say that even in a sport as cruel as dogfighting, Vick’s behavior was beyond the norms within the sport.

One has to hope that Whoopi will be ostracized in the far left circles of Upper Manhattan for these ridiculous statements.

Wonder if this means that she would be in favor of torture of prisoners to get important information about a bomb?

Either way, the excuse that is it part of his culture(what culture, the American culture?) still make it wrong. Moral wrongs cannot be relative to ones subculture.

Indicative?

Mark your calendars... Joy Behar actually said something that made sense!

What does this idiot know about the “Southern Culture”?
You can find dog fighting and cock fighting in the Northeast and the West Coast, but it doesn’t make it any more right. I am sick and tired of ignorant people trying to define crime as a cultural issue related to the South. Maybe we should excuse all the murders in New Orleans because they are cultural related to being raised in NO. What a bunch of bunk.

Exactly.

Polygamy was once part of the culture of certain parts of the country. But it is illegal.

What if Miss Goldberg is doing the job ABC is paying her to do?

She wasn't hired for her looks or her towering intellect. She was hired to draw viewers to sell to advertisers. Her technique is to pretend that utterly moronic beliefs have validity.

Don't blame Whoopi. Blame the advertisers who clearly *demand* the service she willingly provides.

Its not a sport. A sport requires a ball or a puck. Other forms of so called sport are competitions. But as for dogfighting, its neither a sport nor competition, its plain and simple brutallity.

I never thought I would ever hear myself say I agree with Joy Bahar on ANYTHING but here she is spot on. Goldberg, as usual, is talking through her butt.

I have lived in the south my entire life and fighting dogs for sport is NOT PART OF OUR CULTURE. People in the south love their dogs, sometimes more than their spouses.

Goldberg is a native born Noo Yawkah who probably never lived in the south for any reasonable period of time, except perhaps when they were filming one of her many pathetic movies. She moved from Manhatten to Kalifornia when she was in her twenties I believe. Of course not having any real world experience never stops anyone in Hezbollahwood from making “authoratative” statements about anything.

They simply replaced one loudmouthed, liberal, useful idiot with another.

The same could have been said decades ago to justify Klansmen in the south hanging blacks. Would that excuse it?

She just called the black people I know and call friends uncivilized and bad-tempered and incapable of compassion for defenseless animals. That pisses me off. I don’t associate with those who take pleasure out of lesser creatures’ pain...I dont associate with those who are calloused towards life. She just insulted me AND the high character people I know. B***H.

So if you are from a culture where cutting off heads is common it’s OK? How about genital mutilation? Taking drugs? Drive by shootings? By this standard all activity can be rationalized.

Notice that this great tolerance for social deviancy doesn’t stop the libs from condemning people who come from cultures where hunting of gun ownership is common. They still condemn the founding fathers for owning slaves (common hundreds of years ago).
