Whoopi Goldberg: Dhimmi of The Month

You would think that Gillian Gibbons the 54 year British school teacher imprisoned in Khartoum Sudan for the egregious crime of allowing school children to name a teddy bear Muhammad would enjoy the support of feminists and liberals. Wrong. As threats of beheading swarm about her, the National Organization for Woman are "not putting out a statement or taking a position." Brave that. If only the outraged Islamic zealots had patted her butt with their collective hand, boy then they would face the full fury of a feminist hissy fit.
The there's Whoopi Goldberg who, like the clueless gomeril she is, blames the victim:
"You’d think if you’re going overseas, I mean, we had this discussion yesterday
about people coming to America and learning the customs and knowing what is
cool, and what isn’t cool. But I find that maybe we are not- and I say we just
as European and American, we’re not as anxious to learn the customs before we go
places. It’s just one of the reasons we’re called the ugly Americans."
I don't expect much from Whoopi Goldberg, but this isn't a tough one. What should be considered, at worst, an insensitive cultural gaff has an innocent 54 year old woman school teacher in prison with angry mobs literally calling for her head. Goldberg's typical liberal reaction only emboldens such behavior by validating it. Somehow I think if Gillian Gibbons was being held in an American prison for advocating the assassination of the president or any other seditious activity liberals are so fond of lately, Goldberg would be outraged.
