“The View” co-host Joy Behar made another unhinged accusation against former President Donald Trump’s legions of supporters during Tuesday’s broadcast, claiming that they backed him because they are racists focused on “taxes” and “power.”
“He threatened on a Veterans Day speech this past weekend, Trump threatened to, ‘Root out the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country.’ That is when you start talking about people as vermin. That means that you have dehumanized them and the next step is extermination. That is extermination talk,” she said.
The Democrat left, meanwhile, regularly refers to Trump and other Republicans as “nazis” in an attempt to dehumanize them as well.
Behar wasn’t finished. Continuing, she said: “I mean, I’m not going to invoke, but this is what the Biden’s campaign said, ‘On a weekend when most Americans were honoring our nation’s heroes Donald Trump parroted the autocratic language of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.’ Okay it is not, what’s the word I’m looking for, hyperbole to say that he is on the same track as all fascist dictators.”
“Why do people still vote for him? I question myself,” she continued. “Every day, I ask myself the question. It’s about racism and taxes. And the Republican Congress, it’s about retaining power and being in their jobs. That’s all they are about. I think what you’re saying, and we must do something about it now.”
Meanwhile, the radical left — her side of the political spectrum — is responsible for a dramatic rise in anti-Semitism following the terrorist organization Hamas’ deadly sneak attack on Israel last month, in which 1,400 Israelis were killed and more than 250 were taken hostage.
Also, last fall, Biden himself traveled to Philadelphia, where the American Revolution was born, to rail at “MAGA Republicans” — code for Trump supporters — as being threats to the country.
“We must be honest with each other and with ourselves,” Biden said at one point. “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution,” he claimed. “They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden falsely claimed.
Trump and others ripped Biden for his remarks.
“Someone should explain to Joe Biden, slowly but passionately, that MAGA means, as powerfully as mere words can get, MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! If he doesn’t want to Make America Great Again, which through words, action, and thought, he doesn’t, then he certainly should not be representing the United States of America!” he said.
In a tweet, CNN anchor Brianna Keilar — who is married to U.S. Army Lt. Col. Fernando Luján, a Special Forces officer — ripped Biden for giving his speech at Independence Hall in Philadelphia while using U.S. Marines as a backdrop.
“Whatever you think of this speech the military is supposed to be apolitical. Positioning Marines in uniform behind President Biden for a political speech flies in the face of that. It’s wrong when Democrats do it. It’s wrong when Republicans do it,” she tweeted.
