On Tuesday, the co-hosts of ABC’s The View dedicated an entire segment to attacking GOP candidate for Missouri’s open U.S. Senate seat Eric Greitens. The criticism came after Greitens posted a campaign video jokingly claiming to go “RINO hunting,” referring to defeating “Republicans in Name Only.” But The View co-hosts took this as an opportunity to claim Republicans are violent. They also took it as an opportunity to claim Democrats are not violent despite attacks on the lives of conservative Supreme Court justices as they deliberate on the overturning of the pro-abortion 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.
Completely ignoring the assassination attempt against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh just two weeks ago by a leftist extremist, co-host Joy Behar began the discussion by declaring “the Republican Party has become the party of insurrection, revolt, and violence. And they don’t make any bones about it anymore.”
And noting that the Democrats had their “DINOs” in the form of Senators Joe Manchin (WV) and Kristen Sinema (AZ), Behar outrageously suggested they’ve never had threats made against them from the left. “You don’t see us threatening their lives, the Democrats are not the party of violence. [Republicans] have become the party of violence!” she shrieked.
In reality, The View was part of the uncivil media machine that encouraged the kind of activity that opened Kavanaugh to the attack. And Manchin and Sinema have indeed been the target of hostile confrontations.
Behar continued her deranged activism by demanding people not vote for Republicans because “you will lose the country. I’m warning everybody, I’m afraid it’s true.”
Behar continued to claim that voters must elect Democrats in 2022 or else “you will lose your country.”
