Things got weird on the ABC talk show “The View” this week when cohost Whoopi Goldberg outrageously claimed that Republicans are “inviting people to test the waters of fascism.”
This segment kicked off with Goldberg’s cohost Joy Behar ranting against Republicans in the bizarre way that is typical of her.
“This has been a week of crazies on the Republican side. Rick Santorum is saying that Native American culture never existed. Lindsey Graham says there is no systemic racism in the United States. And Newt Gingrich says that a gay pride flag is un-American. OK?” Behar asked, according to The Sun.
“So the question is, what’s going on here?” she added. “These are not stupid people, not really, but they seem to be very cynically appealing to a very low denominator out there, whoever these people are, who are so, like, in the cult and so enamored of Trumpism and so hating of liberals that they will believe anything that these guys tell them. It’s very un-American.”
“And also, as an added gesture, there is no Republican position on what to do with the American people,” Behar said. “So this is a big distraction from the fact that Joe Biden is killing — you know, killing it in the United States because he’s got fantastic programs going on, and the American people like it. So they’re upset about that, too. It’s just an insane time we’re in, and these people are making it worse.”
That’s when Goldberg chimed in to give her outrageous take on Republicans.
“Well, it’s just listen to people try to rewrite history, you know,” she said. “This is them inviting people to test the waters of fascism. That’s what I think. Test the waters and see, pretend that they do anything. They brought nothing to the United States. Pretend this doesn’t exist. Pretend so that we can all turn around and say, it’s them, get them. It’s freaky, but that is what it feels like to me.”
The fact that these two women have a platform to spew this nonsense on national television on a daily basis is truly insane.
