There is no denying that the overturning of Roe v. Wade from the Supreme Court has caused a massive wave of backlash from Democrats, liberal activists, and even Hollywood. While the ruling makes the topic of abortion a state issue, that major detail appeared to be lost in translation as many called for the Supreme Court to be eradicated. Not only that, on Monday, co-host of “The View,” Whoopi Goldberg, suggested that the Supreme Court would eventually ban interracial marriage and put black people back in chains.
The outlandish comments from Goldberg came as the cast of the show was celebrating the 25th season while vacationing in the Bahamas. The only problem, while on vacation, the Supreme Court made their ruling. And as can be seen in the video below, Goldberg didn’t appear to be in the best of moods as she set her sight on Justice Clarence Thomas.
“We can all agree on one thing: you and your family have the right to decide what works for you and what works for your family. That you can decide. You can decide no, I will never have an abortion because that’s what the law allows, it says I don’t have to do that. But if you find that you need one, or you find that you have to do this, or there’s incest — think of all the horrible things that would cause you to make this horrific decision that no one makes with a smile on their face. Nobody. That’s what this is about; that’s what we’re talking about. This isn’t ‘You have to.’ This is about you having the right to make the decision.”
As mentioned above, Justice Thomas, who voted to overturn Roe v. Wade, received much of the anger from Goldberg. “What’s next? As Clarence Thomas is signaling, they would like to get rid of contraception. Do you understand, sir? No, because you don’t have to use it! We were not in the Constitution either. We were not even people in the Constitution. And you better hope that they don’t come for you, Clarence, and say you should not be married to your wife, who happens to be white, because they will move back. And you better hope that nobody says, ‘You’re not in the Constitution. You’re back to being a quarter of a person.’ Because that’s not gonna work either.”
Following her usual rhetoric, the co-host was sure not to leave Republicans out, criticizing female members of the party. “The idea that any of these female governors who are sitting there talking about they want to be a voice for the silent? Be a voice for the present! Be a voice for the ones you can also see and stop saying to people that this is a win for all women because it’s not.”
