The rhetoric from ABC’s The View has steadily grown more and more dangerous and possibly inciting, as co-host Sunny Hostin spent part of Thursday’s show maligning all 74 million Republican 2020 voters by calling them the “biggest domestic threat” to the country after House Republicans opposed a Democratic-led effort against so-called “domestic terrorism.” Both she and co-host Sara Haines scoffed at concerns that slapping on labels could lead to a slippery slope.
After playing soundbites of GOP opposition on the House floor and Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) calling all Republican representatives racist, co-hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg dismissed the existence of Antifa and called the GOP the real terrorists:
GOLDBERG: I mean, when did Washington really get to be a place where stopping domestic terrorism is divisive?
BEHAR: I guess when they're part of the problem. [Laughter]
GOLDBERG: Domestic terrorists are voting on the bill.
