Who Is the Latest Michael Vick Defender??

9/4/2007 3:12 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

You'll never guess who the latest person is to jump into the Michael Vick defense fray!!


It's Whoopi!

On her first day as "The View's" moderator, Goldberg made a big splash -- more like a big splat --playing apologist for confessed dogfighting kingpin Michael Vick's canine torturing, explaining that dogfighting was "part of his cultural upbringing."

Much to the obvious dismay of "View"-mates Joy Behar and Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Goldberg suggested that Vick might not have known that he was doing a viciously horrific thing with his dogfighting ring. "You know, from his background, this is not an unusual thing for where he comes from," said the redundant Whoopi.

Not content to perpetuate stereotypes about Southerners and dogfighting, Goldberg also likened Vick and his outrage to the Chinese and eating cats. "People would not like it if we ate kitty," she said.

Why isn't anyone concerned about this man being dangerous to people? Most serial killers abused animals first. In his apology he described his behavior as "immature" as if it would be normal for a 12 year old. In reality if a 12 year old hurt this many animals we would be seeking psychiatric help for him before he starts on people!! I for one don't feel safe so long as we let people like Vick off with a tap on the hand instead of making them either go to prison or get psychiatric help. There is no excuse for anyone torturing animals!!

I recently posted a comment which doesn't seem to be available for viewing...I surely hope it wasn't censored for using normal webster's dictionay approved wording...However, there was some vocabulary that was used to make a point (Mainly that Whoopi Goldberg is 'obviously' out of touch with reality)...or completely insane...or on mind altering drugs...or something...
I hope the comment is still here (somewhere)...If not, I want anyone who takes the time to know what 'I' think:

Anyone...and I mean anyone, regardless of needs to be strung up and electrocuted, beat and electrocuted somemore for what Micheal Vick and the LOW-LIFE CREEPS he 'hangs with'...

'If'...he did what is alleged...(like OJ didn't do what was alleged)...I'll be glad to supply the rope or the electricity or the whip...Instead, I imagine (because of how much money he makes, his status in society from being an overpaid athelete, etc, etc.)...He'll manage to get the same type of justice OJ received...

But what really gets me...especially because (I think ) Whoopi Goldberg was in Charlotte a few years ago working on a movie project (where a scene was shot in the Nations Bank Building in Uptown Charlotte, NC)...She SHOULD KNOW the vast majority of the people who live in the Southern US feel the same way that I do concerning the mistreatment of living creatures. However, She SHOULD KNOW that some living creatures (ie. Micheal Vick and the LOW-LIFE CREEPS he 'hangs with')...Don't deserve that same respect....It's a question of CHARACTER, NOT RACE, RELIGION or where you're from...LOW-LIFE IDIOTS (regardless if they are purple, green or plaid & tattood), Yes LOW-LIFE IDIOTS are simply that, LOW-LIFE IDIOTS! ..And they deserve 'the same treatment they dish out' to other 'ANIMALS'...So, Whoopi...SHUT UP!...

Adios & my Kindest Regards to everyone...(well almost everyone)...

I am so surprised that Whoopi would even consider that dogfighting is acceptable even if it is supposedly a "cultural" thing?????? What are you thinking Whoopi???? am disappointed in her.
