Apparently Whoppi Goldberg, actress and co-presenter of the television show “The View”, seems to find it appropriate to make demeaning fun of the painful misfortunes of other people. David Web, editor of the Western Sportsman Magazine (Canada) wrote a post on his blog how he due to the flue had some time on his hands to watch the" View" and witnessed Whoopi Goldberg relating the story of Randy Goodman. The Kansas hunter that got badly injured by a whitetail deer buck in Novemebr. Goldberg made no secret about it that she found the accident absolutely hilarious. She laughed and jokied with the other View presenters, among them Barbara Walters, as she relayed in cheerful mood how the hunter walked up on a dowthe deer jumped up and attacked the hunter. Goodman finally managed to dispatch the buck and get himself to the hospital with severe injuries, were he was treated.
When the View presenters where done laughing and joking Barbara asked Whoopi. “Did the deer die?” Goldberg got emotional, hanging her head, and said with a sad voice. “Yes, the deer died.” In chorus the other presenters chimed in, “Oh, that’s to bad!” I really don’t get it. In fact I am outraged by this sort of inhuman behavior of people that ride constantly on “humanitarian” bandwagons. But yet find it appropriate to make fun of the hunters accident that easily could have killed him and insult the distressed family of the victim, if it suits their anti-hunting agenda. I think a letter to the producers of the View would be in order from the hunting community, to show these bigoted self-righteous “celebrities” that we take offense on this intolerable behavior against another fellow human.
If that stories victim had been about an animal the nation would be outraged about making fun of such a tragedy on daytime television. Talking about animals. I might let you know that Goldberg was the one running to the defense of Michael Vick and his involvement in the dog fighting business. How hypocritical of her to defend a animal abuser and then turn around and call hunters “cruel people” deserving of what's coming to them when attacked by an animal.
