ABC’s The View doesn’t have a stellar record when it comes to being respectful of the Holocaust. So, of course, it wasn’t really a surprise when co-host Joy Behar abused International Holocaust Remembrance Day on Friday to suggest Republicans wanted to ban teaching educating kids about it in history classes and tried to tie it to opposition to Critical Race Theory.
Behar was filling in as moderator for Whoopi Goldberg (who’s made her own disgusting comments about the Holocaust which we’ll get to further down) and speaking with actor Josh Gad about how the Holocaust harmed his family.
Gad noted that it’s important to teach kids about the Holocaust “because without remembering the past, we can't prevent atrocities that we couldn't even imagine in the future.” And he warned that “63 percent of today's youth don't know that the Holocaust happened. They don't know what the holocaust is.”
