The women of “The View” are angry over this.
Was Goldberg also upset when Barack Obama noted the decline of the black two-parent household? –
“More than half of all black children live in single-parent households, a number that has doubled — doubled — since we were children.”
– or just when she thinks a white woman said it? (Because Bachmann didn’t say it — in fact, it wasn’t even included in the original pledge she signed. Goldberg condescendingly remarked that Bachmann needs to read up on history, I reply that Goldberg should get her facts straight on this story before commenting on it.) Bachmann signed a pledge that she feels is indicative of her faith and doesn’t rewrite her principles to accommodate popularity. We’ve become the first industrialized nation to outlaw slavery, to elect a black president, but families in the black community are still suffering, a suffering often aided by the very individuals who claim to help. This is irony, not racism.hat Goldberg cherry picks when she wants to get upset over a perceived racial insult is, itself, offensive. (No outrage when Democrats assumed that more black Americans were on welfare than white?)
Grace follows redemption and certain situations are unavoidable, but I’m tired of Hollywood romanticizing it as a choice equal to that of a two-parent upbringing.
Hey Dana, your narrow-minded and insane views on single-parent upbringing are loony, considering that YOU spent a considerable amount of your childhood without both parents. My parents have been split up for almost five years now and live with a single parent, my Dad. Also, Ms. Loesch, Goldberg has the facts, while you're just making stuff up in thin air.
Here was the excerpt of the controversial reference to slavery, via Politico.
"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African-American baby born fter the election of the USA's first African-American President," read the preamble.Whoopi Goldberg on The View, told it like it is about Bachmann's anti-Same Sex Marriage/anti-porno/anti-masturbation pledge.
From the 07.11.2011 edition of ABC's The View:
One of the GOP candidates for President, the libertarian-leaning former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson, condemned it as being "offensive" and "un-Republican." At least he has the balls to call out his own party on this farce of a pledge.
She also filled in for Jason Lewis, on KTLK's The Jason Lewis Show this past Friday, and it was more of the same loony shit that she regularly says on The Dana Show.
