Whoopi Whines Young People Don’t Protest Anymore, ‘We Were Forced’

Four years after the Black Lives Matter Riots and just a couple of months after the pro-Hamas/anti-Semitic encampments on college campuses and the death threats to Congress over the possible ban of TikTok, ABC moderator Whoopi Goldberg took to Wednesday’s edition of The View to whine that young people supposedly don’t protest and “stand for stuff” like how she was “forced to do.”

Their conversation was spurred on by former President Obama expressing that his daughters had no interest in getting into politics; a bit of news that gave The View the sads. “So, as funny as that is, it’s also really sad. Does that mean that politics have gotten so nasty that young people don’t want to go into it?” Goldberg lamented.

“It is nasty. I miss Obama, though. I see him and I want him back,” co-host Joy Behar bemoaned. “That whole lie that went around that said Obama wasn’t born in this country. So, I don’t think they want to subject their kids to such nonsense. I agree with that.”

Staunchly racist and anti-Semitic co-host Sunny Hostin (the descendant of slave owners) argued that it made sense that “a lot of black mothers, especially, would be nervous about their children getting into politics because of the racial bias that still exists in this country. The societal bias, the structural racism that still exists in this country…”

“But you know, we need less influencers and more leaders. We do. We need fresh blood,” she proclaimed.

Possibly thinking of her own toxic opinions, Hostin added: “We need young people that are unafraid to give their unvarnished opinions and not as concerned about their brands and not as concerned about what other people will think…And stand on the right side of history for a change. And I’m so disappointed.”

It was then that Goldberg inexplicably went off with her wild inaccuracy that young people supposedly didn’t protest things or took political action anymore:

GOLDBERG: I think we have not taught them how to do that. We haven’t —

HOSTIN: There’s many, many people willing to do it.

GOLDBERG: I have to tell you; we have not taught young people how to stand for stuff. They’re learning.

HAINES: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: But this is not something — we were forced to do it because our brothers or sisters or uncles and cousins were thrown into wars. They were thrown into stuff.  Women wanted the opportunity to go to school. There were things we were fighting for.

At no point did Goldberg explain what evidence she had that led her to that conclusion nor did she address how she would square her assertion with the recent campus protests against the Jews. But she did scold: “I think a lot of the problem is because people keep saying — where are the grown-ups? Talking about us. And I say, we’ve done this. We’ve been doing it. We’re waiting for y’all to come.”

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: So, as funny as that is, it’s also really sad.

SARA HAINES: Yeah.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: Does that mean that politics have gotten so nasty that young people don’t want to go into it?

JOY BEHAR: It is nasty. I miss Obama, though. I see him and I want him back.

HOSTIN: Yeah, he just makes you smile.

BEHAR: I love him. He was such a good president. But I think, you know, the Kennedys have a legacy. You know, they have that whole generation of guys.

GOLDBERG: Not anymore.

BEHAR: Until look what happened with the latest RFK Jr., the poor guy has a worm in his brain.

[Laughter]

Which is a problem if you’re going to run the country.

[Laughter]

But the Obamas — and the Kennedys are subject to the same kind of vitriol that any other president was. But with the Obamas, on top of that, you have racism coming at them.

And these kids remember when Melania and Trump said he was a birther. That whole lie that went around that said Obama wasn’t born in this country. So, I don’t think they want to subject their kids to such nonsense. I agree with that.

HOSTIN: And I think a lot of black mothers, especially, would be nervous about their children getting into politics because of the racial bias that still exists in this country. The societal bias, the structural racism that still exists in this country, even though people think that that’s not true.

But you know, we need less influencers and more leaders. We do. We need fresh blood. We need young people that are unafraid to give their unvarnished opinions and not as concerned about their brands and not as concerned about what other people will think.

BEHAR: Or about getting reelected.

HOSTIN: And getting reelected. And stand on the right side of history for a change. And I’m so disappointed.

GOLDBERG: I think we have not taught them how to do that. We haven’t —

HOSTIN: There’s many, many people willing to do it.

GOLDBERG: I have to tell you; we have not taught young people how to stand for stuff. They’re learning.

HAINES: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: But this is not something — we were forced to do it because our brothers or sisters or uncles and cousins were thrown into wars. They were thrown into stuff.  Women wanted the opportunity to go to school. There were things we were fighting for.

HAINES: Their fighting for things now. And their wages are being squashed.

GOLDBERG: I don’t know if that’s true. I think lot of the problem is, because people keep saying — where are the grown-ups? Talking about us. And I say, we’ve done this. We’ve been doing it. We’re waiting for y’all to come.
