Whoopi, Cut the Crap

Okay, I’m gonna have to call B.S. on Whoopi Goldberg.

In the wake of the flap she is taking for saying Roman Polanski’s situation didn’t involve “rape rape,” Whoopi tried to do a little damage control.

It seems she called the Today Show to “clarify” her previous comments made on The View. Whoopi is now saying that she meant that Polanski hadn’t been charged with “rape.” She says she was focusing on the “legal” terminology. Of course, she refused an on-air interview that could have provided further “clarification.”

That is a bogus argument if I’ve ever heard one. First, I find it ironic that Whoopi, in her tirade, went off on people who were “bitching” about this situation without knowing all of the facts, when it was clear during the interview that she herself didn’t know all of the facts. She asked producers to answer some of her questions via her earpiece, and it was obvious that she was not aware of the six charges on which Polanski was indicted, and instead, seemed to focus on the fact that he had plead to one lesser charge.

The other reason we know this is a bogus after-the-fact attempt at damage control is that Whoopi, in that same segment, argued that other people in other countries have different views about sex than here in America, and other places, sex with 13-year-olds isn’t that big of a deal.

So, apparently, moral relativism even applies to child rape.
