Whoopi Goldberg Rips Michele Bachmann and the 'Marriage Vow': VIDEO


Whoopi Goldberg ripped Michele Bachmann this morning for signing "The Marriage Vow -- A Declaration of Dependence Upon Marriage and Family", a requirement for earning the Iowa conservative group The Family Leader's endorsement. The pledge also requires opposition to Sharia law and banning pornography.

The document also contained this statement, which was removed over outrage:

"Slavery had a disastrous impact on African-American families, yet sadly a child born into slavery in 1860 was more likely to be raised by his mother and father in a two-parent household than was an African American baby born after the election of the USA's first African-American President."

Ranted Whoopi Goldberg on this morning's View: "Dammit, I am sick of this crap!"

  1. @JEN,"You know, the one where the Reverend Jeremiah Wright consistently and continually bashed all white people and gays, too. There's an old saying...."birds of a feather, flock together" and we need to run these cuckoos out of our lives!"

    You obviously have never heard the words spoken by Jeremiah Wright and are just regurgitating right-wing talking points. Jeremiah Wright's church is actually one of the most pro-gay rights black churches you will find.

    The tea party is racist because the only reason for its existence is Barack Obama. You all started protesting him just a few days after his inauguration while sitting quietly for 8 years under Bush. The tea party is just a bunch of disgruntled Republican hypocrites!

  2. @JEN, BTW, since the tea party hasn't spoken out against this pledge it can be inferred that they support it, after all Michelle Bachmann (the tea party darling) signed it!

  3. Sorry, NY2, you have it wrong again. Bo won by a landslide...it wasn't until that summer that people started protesting, especially when the dow tanked and they started taking over banks and auto companies and then took our healthcare. After seeing just how socialist/fascist this man is, THEN we got pissed and started protesting. That's not America and that's not what our soldiers fought and died for, they fought and died while fighting against the likes of these guys. This is not a war on Obama, it's a war on those in Congress who have ruined our country. RINOs and Democrats - the ultra left wing freaks. The main stream media isn't going to show anyone from the Tea Party trashing this "pledge" because they want you to think of us exactly how you do. If that church is so pro-gay, why won't BO support gay marriage? Michelle Bachmann isn't the TP darling, again, that's what the media is portraying her as. I do admit that during the Bush years, we should have been paying attention but we are now and if you listened to what the Tea Party actually says, we don't like Bush, either. I'm sorry you have been mislead but you have the power to take your head out of the sand and look at what all of these idiots have done to us and are in the process of doing now.

  5. Goldberg is totally wrong. A Black child born into slavery in 1860 had a 75 to 90 percent chance of growing up in a two-parent home. A Black child born today has perhaps a 30 percent chance. Goldberg, like many others, turns her brain off when she hears "slavery" and becomes a ranting loon. She needs to sober up and pay attention.

  6. @JEN, honey your beloved tea party is being funded by the billionaire Koch brothers. And they are using the anxiety of ignorant people on the right who have anxiety about Obama's skin color as a means to forward their agenda.

    You lost all credibility with the socialist/fascist name calling? Do you teabaggers even know the meaning of those words? They are contradictory, you can't be a socialist and fascist at the same time, find a dictionary. And then you go on to admit that you started protesting six months into Obama's presidency when in fact the bailouts started under Bush.

    You claim that Bachmann is not the tea party darling but she most certainly is welcomed at their rallies isn't she? She and Cruella from Alaska! Who needs to get their heads out of the sand now?

    "Thats not what America and thats not what our soldiers fought and died for'" Oh spare me the false patriotism, again where was your outrage when Bush launched the illegal war in Iraq and started the economic slide?

    As I said before, you and the teaparty are just a bunch of disgruntled hypocritical Repugs!

  7. JEN

    You don't need to get started with the "I know you hate the Tea Party but I am a Tea Partier and look at how nice I am." I stopped reading right after the sentence where u said you're a tea partier. Have I ever met a vampire? No Jen, and I don't care to. Just like I don't need to jump out the window of my sixth floor office to know what the experience will be. I think NY2.0 put it rather well: the only reason for the tea party's existence is the fact that Barack Obama is in the White House. If you believe otherwise, you're not worthy of my time.

  8. It was clear to me that the same-sex marriage issue was the absolute least of any of their worries. Whoopi was mainly pissed about the racial statement and the diss on single mothers. And Sherri Brown, who has never been a supporter of gay rights or same-sex marriage was ONLY upset about the racial issue. They hardly even mentioned the MAIN purpose of the document; to attack same-sex marriage and to demand that Republican candidates pledge to fight gay rights and gay marriage.

    I don't see Whoopi or any of the others coming off as big heroes here.
