Once again, Whoopi Goldberg of "The View" is captured ranting and raving about something that isn’t even true.
Earlier this week, she
lambasted Ron DeSantis
and Florida’s Board of Education over not consulting African-Americans about black history curriculum standards, even though two black scholars were on the board that approved the curriculum.
Now she’s turned her fiery gaze toward Ben Shapiro over his recent commentary about the new “Barbie” movie.
Shapiro was very forthcoming with his views about the film:
“I find it upsetting when material based on children’s IP marketed to little girls actually ends up being angry feminist claptrap that alienates men from women, undermines basic human values, and promotes falsehood all at the same time.”
“It’s a movie about a doll!” Whoopi shrieks in response to Shapiro’s clip.
“When [kids are] seeing this movie, that’s not how they’re looking at it,” she continues.
Not only is “Barbie”
a kids' film (it’s rated PG-13), but it’s also unapologetically predicated on feminism and patriarchy rather than subjects that would apply to a child’s doll.
“It’s not just a doll movie,” Dave Rubin says, adding, “If you listen to any of the people who made the movie, they’re telling you that they’re putting political and cultural messages in there.”
And he’s absolutely right.
Issa Rae, who plays President Barbie, is quoted as saying, “Barbie takes on some of the greatest gender imbalances present in society today.”
Simu Liu, one of the Kens in the film, said, “I hope that [the film] really challenges gender norms and heteronormativity.”
Add to that the fact that Barbie struggles with thoughts of death and is even called a “fascist” at one point in the film, and it’s perfectly clear: “Barbie” is most certainly not just “a movie about a doll.”
But Whoopi can continue being what Rubin calls a “deeply shallow thinker” if she wants to.
