Whoopi Goldberg Calls Communism a Great ConceptComing off an apparent fartor not — on live TV last week, Whoopi Goldberg declared on “The View” Tuesday that communism is “a great concept” that “makes perfect sense.”

Her comments came during a discussion with her fellow hosts about the death of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, after establishing that his son and successor, Kim Jong Un, had been educated in Switzerland.

“If you say that this is how our culture is and then you send your child to a Swiss boarding school — you know, this is what happens with communism. It’s a great concept. On paper it makes perfect sense. But once you put a human being in power, it shifts. We saw it in Russia, we’ve seen it all around the world. It’s nuts. But, I keep my fingers crossed.”

“We wish them well in North Korea, ” Joy Behar said.
