Whoopi Goldberg defends Mel Gibson

Whoopi Goldberg says Mel Gibson is NOT racist even though in two different tapes you can hear Mel referring to black people as “n*****s” that run in “packs” and Mexicans as “wetbacks” who he’ll deport without hesitation. Whoopi thinks Mel is just misunderstood.

“I know Mel, and I know he’s not a racist,” Whoopi said on ‘The View’ on Monday, seeming both earnest and cautious to weigh in. “I have had a long friendship with Mel. You can say he’s being a bonehead, but I can’t sit and say that he’s a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids. I don’t like what he’s done, make no mistake.”

When Joy Behar asked if Goldberg considered Gibson anti-Semitic after his 2006 tirade against a Jewish police officer in LA , Goldberg began calling him “an ass” before stifling herself. Whoopi then pinpointed alcohol as the culprit. “Drunks say stupid stuff to people all the time — because they’re drunk, they’re out of control, they are not thinking, they are idiotic. I can’t say anything about people like that because I know what they’re like when they’re drunk. This rant? I don’t think he’s drunk on this rant.”

Whoopi concluded: “I’m not defending Mel. I’m simply saying I don’t see him as [a racist] because that’s not been my experience with him.”

Whoopi’s argument is he didn’t call her the N word and say she runs in a pack while he was visiting her house. Oh well la-dee-da. I’m pretty sure serial killers don’t dismember their victims in a police station either. That’s about a convincing an argument as saying Jessica Simpson isn’t food obsessed because you’ve never seen her stuff a whole turkey down her throat. Her thighs are proof enough.
