Gee.

If only I shopped at this over-priced ware-house full of cheap Chinese junk.

Then I could boycott this place.

It isn’t just her defense of Polanski, she said that giving a 13 year old pills and booze and penetrating her against her will “isn’t rape-rape”.

Well I sent them a little email from their site to ask if they also think it was not “rape-rape” or whether they just condone people who feel it was not really a bad thing.

I just sent off an email to Toys-R-Us telling them that as long as they associate with Ms. Goldberg, I will NOT be shopping in their store...with 12 grandchildren, that will lead to a great loss to their company...

No, I think “Thank Heaven For Little Girls” would be more Polansks’s style. Does anybody have an email address to express our discuss with Toys R Us? I tried their website and all I could find under [contact us] was a place to ask questions.

HAHAHAHAHA!!!!

Now her having said Polanski just did not do “rape-rape” the video here is hilarious!

It features Whoopi saying...

” The new toys are for children with special needs...it helps them overcome obstacles and teaches them to reach new heights! and it helps them with their self esteem!
What is more fun that watching a child PLAY!”

I bet Polanski’s victim could have used one of these toys to “help her self esteem” after he brutalized her! Oh and yes, I bet it was fun to watch “her play”.

Toys r us will remove this video in 24 hours..I said it first!!

She also claimed that the Apollo 11 moon landing was faked.

She made some kind of statement about planes not colliding anymore because they all have (something) now that prevents this.

Believe she said it after the Hudson River landing and just before the private plane/helo crash.

Nice timing there, Whoopdy.

Simple question time.

Does Toys R’ Us consider Whoopie their spokesperson at this point in time?

if yes;

After all - if drugging and raping children is something they endorse; I’d like to know that before I take my Grandchildren shopping there. I simply believe in ‘childhood innocense’ ..... but what do I know? I’m just a taxpaying, churchgoing, racist.

Goldberg has admitted to killing at least eight of her own offspring inutero so I don’t think she cares that much about children.

Doesn't Whoopi Goldberg have a daughter? What would she have thought if it was her daughter who was drugged and then raped 3 times by Polanski??? Would it be rape or would it be "rape-rape"?

Don't ask me what "rape-rape" is, I have no idea. Rape is rape. That Whoopi Goldberg can make a distinction is amazing.

I posted too soon. No idea that Whoopi had killed 8 of her preborn offspring. So, it’s obvious that she doesn’t care about the lives of children. Understandable, then, that she be wouldn’t be too concerned about the well-being of ONE drugged/raped child. But she cares deeply about the perpetrator!

Goldberg did not really defend him....she just tried to clarify what he pled too and was convicted of.

I agree her parsing was goofy but I missed seeing her say what he did was ok..

and I watched it with my wife ...because the cows were talking about this...Melissa Gilbert excepted...she is no cow...she looks good actually

Ask her about her drug years and the things she did then and you'll see the reason for her thinking. Gee if he had done the same to her daughter I'm sure she would be defending him anyway.

Women tried to bring attention to rape as a serious crime for decades. So they changed their tactic. They argued that rape is a violent crime, not a crime about sex, but violence.

So now- apologists try to distinguish a difference between one rape from another rape. In their minds, if the victim was not threatened by a knife or gun, or beat up, etc- then it is not violent, not “really a rape”

I would love to hear Whoopi call Oprah and tell Oprah that her child rape wasn’t really a rape...I mean if the victim in this case was some Hollywood elitist and the rapist were some rich Republican that fled for thirty years, there would be an entirely different tone.....

these people are just flat our sick....their world view is beyond screwed, it is outright hypocritical narcisistic..

This is what I wrote to Toys R Us:

I came to the Toys R Us website to shop for two of our children's birthdays and to look for Christmas presents, and saw Whoopi Goldberg on the main page.

I find it beyond disgusting that you are prominently advertising Ms. Goldberg, who has been featured on every news station today, claiming that Roman Polanski's drugging and rape of a 13 year old girl, for which *he* *was* *convicted* wasn't actually "rape".

Far be it for me to tell you how to do business, but I can tell you this: I will not be doing business with a toy store who thinks using an apologist for child rape is a good idea.

I will be boycotting Toys R Us until you remove Ms. Goldberg from your advertising and will be asking my friends, family, and co-workers to do so as well.

Featuring this person on a toy store's website is vile ans disgusting. Have you no shame?

Here are the details of Ms Goldberg's statement: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/film/roman-polanski/6245219/Roman-Polanski-backlash-as-Whoopi-Goldberg-says-director-didnt-commit-rape-rape.html

How could you allow her on your website after saying this about a child?

Okay, put the very best face on it that the defense can claim: [enter character assassination mode] Samantha was very mature and worldly for her 13 years. She knew Polansky was a famous director and could help her immensely in her budding acting career. She not only consented, she actively encouraged Polansky. It was only afterwards, when he didn't give her the fame she craved, that she concocted a story to punish Polansky and gain notoriety for herself. [end character assassination mode]

Even if all this is true (and don't get me wrong, I'm not saying any of it is!) it doesn't excuse the fact that he had relations with a minor who was 30 years younger than him!

Sad to say, Whoopi, but that's RAPE, no matter the circumstances. What part of "age of consent" do you not understand? Regardless of Samantha's actions, he RAPED her by legal definition. If Polansky walks, there are thousands of statutory rapists serving time who are being imprisoned unjustly. Would you like them released in your grandchildren's neighborhood?
