WTF, Whoopi?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

First, Whoopi said that Roman Polanski didn’t commit “rape-rape.”

Now she’s saying, “I don’t like what [Mel] did here, but I know Mel, and he is not a racist…I can’t sit and say he’s a racist, having spent time with him in my house with my kids. I can’t say it.”  The then went on to excuse his anti-Semitism as drunken belligerence. Really, Whoopi? “I hope you get raped by a pack of n*ggers,” isn’t racist? Calling someone a wetback and threatening to have them deported isn’t racist?

Methinks Whoopi needs to take a page from Joy Behar, who said, “Mel, you’re an anti-Semite, you’re a misogynist, and you’re a racist.  Out of the movies!”

    Whoopi and Elton John have both lost their damn minds. It happens.

    Whoopi has been doing this for years, I’m convinced she gets a PR firm paycheck for defending assholes. The list is incredible, just google “whoopi defends” and scroll thru a few pages.

    I’m really concerned about celeb friends of his coming to his defence, even now. I remember Jodie Foster defending him as not a bigot after the anti-Semitic/misogynist incident a few years ago, and she’s currently working with him on a film in production. Will she speak out against him?

    One thought–and I can’t know how much validity it has, but… Stockholm Syndrome. These women have to know this guy is one dangerous mutherf*cker and what are the chances that this plays a part in them publicly defending him?

    I also think there’s a dynamic at work where Black celebrities, friends or not, are sort of under the gaze of white Amerikkka ready to pronounce any Black artist who comes out against Mel as “playing the race card”. That Mel plays it like it was every card in the deck seems not to be noticed. That whites play the race card all the damn time seems to not be of concern to whites.

    But this level of racism and misogyny–so vitriolic, so vehement, so vile, cannot be ignored and I’m going to be surprised if, once Mel goes to jail–which he must–for threatening his partner’s life and for his physical and emotional abuse of her, once he’s behind bars if women who know him well will feel safer to speak out against him.

    If Mel Gibson isn’t an anti-gay, anti-woman, anti-Semitic, anti-Black, anti-Mexican racist-hetero/sexist prick, then no one is.

    I am on the same page as ivyleaves. Mel is spinning some serious PR dough to cover up domestic violence. It’s sick.
