Looters across the nation are setting things on fire. They’re destroying businesses. They’re creating chaos. For most Democrats, they’re willing to look the other way. In fact, there’s a fund started in Minnesota that’s even paying the bail for those arrested during this crazy time.
Whoopi Goldberg, a co-host of The View and a left-wing Democrat, may not be as left as she likes to think she is. Either that, or she missed the memo where Dems were supposed to be in support of the looting.
Goldberg posted a video to her Instagram, letting followers know that enough is enough.
She doesn’t care who you are. Enough is enough. She believes that people from all walks of life are getting fed up with the looters. It’s no longer about Floyd. It’s a reason to go out into the streets and cause destruction. There are too many law-abiding citizens having their businesses and their livelihoods ruined by the looting – and for what reason?
Goldberg is right about one thing: they’re destroying dreams.
The looters are saying they’re angry because of creating victims out of innocent people. However, they’re just as bad. They’re doing the same thing.
How is it that Goldberg can see this when so much of the Democratic party cannot? Is this her way of breaking off from them or was she left out of the loop?
Many on the Biden presidential campaign have donated to the Minnesota fund to pay the bail for those who have been arrested looting and protesting. In addition to Biden, there are a number of left-wing Democrats taking to social media to urge donations – Justin Timberlake, Kamala Harris, and Steve Carrell are some of the bigger names.
It would seem that Whoopi Goldberg would jump on this train. She loves her Democratic party fiercely. She wants to do whatever she can to support them, but it seems she’s not blind. She doesn’t want to help those who have been looting.
Whoopi Goldberg is doing what the mayor of NYC, Bill DeBlasio, has been begging people: to do something. DeBlasio has been urging celebrities and religious leaders to call for a stop to all of the madness. However, too many people have been ignoring the cries. They want to make it all about politics. They support the looting and the rioting because it allows those people to make a point about Floyd’s death. The problem is that Floyd wouldn’t have wanted this. His family doesn’t want this. And it stopped being productive days ago.
Goldberg warned that people have made it impossible to get back to their lives. She said to all of the looters that someone – your mom, your grandmother, your cousin’s baby – can’t get their medication because you have burned the pharmacy down.
The View is currently playing re-runs, so it’s hard to know how Behar and some of the other co-hosts feel about the looting. Perhaps they were left out of the memo on how the Democratic Party is handling the issue, too.
Goldberg could easily get mad. She could agree with the looters and the protesters. However, she’s seeing dreams being crushed. She’s reading about lives getting ruined. She’s choosing to get mad about that. She may not be the die-hard Democrat that she wants to be due to her compassion on this issue. She sees the other side.
Now, if only Goldberg could take it one step further and call her fellow Democrats out for what they’re doing. Why would they donate money to post bail for those breaking the law? As many have pointed out recently when Justin Timberlake recently tweeted to call for more donations, the fund should be to help those who have had their lives ruined by the looters, not helping the looters who actually broke the law.
Goldberg not getting the message may be the best way for the looters to finally get the scolding that they need.
