‘The View’ Smears Justices Clarence Thomas and ACB, Accuses Them of Being Race, Gender Traitors

‘The View’ Smears Justices Clarence Thomas and ACB, Accuses Them of Being Race, Gender Traitors

“You could make the case that somebody like Amy Coney Barrett was put in there because she’s a white woman. Who they say, well, she’ll go against abortion rights and she’s ‘a woman,'” co-host Joy Behar said, putting air quotes around the word “woman.”

I try to watch “The View” as little as possible beyond the clips shared of the program on Twitter. It’s one of the most poisonous talk shows on TV, perhaps even worse than Joy Reid’s show. These ladies try to present themselves as “informed queens” but in reality come off as nothing more than the TV equivalent of “woke” Twitter, with zero to offer in the way of rational, informed discourse. Instead, they opt for venomous “mean girl” rhetoric because they think it makes them look in tune with what’s happening in the world.

A couple of reprehensible segments they did earlier this week in the midst of the retirement of Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer and President Biden’s pledge to nominate a black woman to replace Breyer are perfect cases in point.

On Thursday, the same day Justice Breyer made it official, during a panel discussion, the rabidly liberal co-hosts began talking about how it was important for Biden to make sure to nominate another liberal considering the make-up of the court in their view is skewed 6-3 conservative. They also talked about how “representation” was supposedly equally important on our nation’s highest court and how it was imperative that Biden follow through on his campaign promise to nominate a black woman.

That’s when the bigotry started.

Co-host Sara Haines said to her colleagues that the fact that there have only been two black men on the Supreme Court was “a little shocking” to her. That prompted co-host Sunny Hostin to proclaim with a serious face that “one doesn’t really represent the black community,” clearly referring to Justice Clarence Thomas:

A little later, the attacks on Thomas escalated, and Justice Amy Coney Barrett was also vilified by the panel, especially by Joy Behar, who essentially declared both Thomas and Bennett traitors to their race and gender respectively because they oftentimes don’t decide hot button cases in the ways liberals expect a black man and a woman to:

BEHAR: You could make the case that somebody like Amy Coney Barrett was put in there because she’s a white woman.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Yeah.

BEHAR: Who they say, well, she’ll go against abortion rights and she’s a “woman.” So that was deliberate, I think. Clarence Thomas, a black guy, a black man, a justice, okay, I’ll give it to him. He’s a smart guy, but he is to the right of Attila the Hun, this guy. And they put him in there saying, oh, a black man will go against voting rights, which is what he does.

In addition to that, both Behar and Goldberg laughably proclaimed that Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell was “not following the law” when it came to the Supreme Court – without giving one example of what it was they were talking about.

Watch their mindless rants and Behar use air quotes when she refers to Barrett as a woman below:

At another point, Behar engaged in another classic Democrat tactic of declaring the Supreme Court “dictatorial” simply because the make-up of it wasn’t what she preferred it to be. Remember, in the past when the court made rulings that pleased liberals – like the one about Obamacare – Democrats gloated about it and called it the final word, the law of the land. But when they don’t vote the left’s way, they are “dictatorial” and then the discussions of term limits and/or adding Justices to the court become fashionable in Democrat circles. So predictable:

Not surprisingly, the panel got a lot of blowback in response to their overt displays of bigotry and what some would call their “whitesplaining” regarding how Clarence Thomas was supposed to think and decide in their minds. Naturally, Behar fumed the next day about it, declaring that she was an “informed” person who read the newspapers and then made “informed decisions” accordingly. After Hostin interjected by suggesting she herself was supremely qualified to have opinions about the SCOTUS because she is “a member of the Supreme Court Bar,” Behar demanded her critics stop with the “baloney attacks” because apparently the only people allowed to criticize others are the cast of characters on “The View”:

For anyone who watched these segments and believes the co-hosts didn’t say anything wrong, imagine for five seconds what the reactions would be like if this was a conservative panel that made similarly condescending and insulting comments about Justices Kagan or Sotomayor or the late Justice Marshall, suggesting they should rule a certain way based on their race or gender? There would be howls of outrage all over the place – even from other conservatives, and rightly so.

For decades the left has preached about the advantages of diversity and how women, people of color, and other minorities should have a seat at the table to express their opinions free from judgment of them based on their gender or color of their skin. And yet these same leftists will tell you that if a black man doesn’t believe in affirmative action or if a woman doesn’t believe in abortion they are insufficiently black, female, etc., and “not representative” of their community.

Simply put, on this issue – like so many others – the left does not practice what they preach. Because to them, it’s not really about minorities having the right to think independently; it’s about shoehorning minorities into little boxes and brainwashing them with a leftist groupthink mentality about society that forbids thinking outside the box.

This toxic, narrow-minded mentality is the main reason I walked away from the left decades ago and never looked back. Any Democrat who viewed these videos with a similar disgust maybe should consider doing the same because I’ve got news for you: What Behar and Hostin said is actually very representative of modern leftist “thinking,” and unfortunately that will never, ever change.

How can ACB be a gender traitor when gender is whatever someone says it is? Maybe ACB identifies as non-binary. Sorry leftists, but you can’t have a traitor against something with no meaning.

I don’t care to hoots what any of those women think. A bunch of Gossiping Gertie’s with a television program.

“Clarence Thomas “doesn’t really represent the black community”. News flash, justices are not supposed to “represent” any community. They’re supposed to rule on the law without prejudice or passion.

If he represents the black community instead of upholding the constitution, then he should be impeached. It’s not hard to understand, but it’s something Bahr and all her View accolades won’t understand.

    Their argument is based on the thoroughly mistaken premise that SCOTUS justices are “representatives” of anyone. Beyhar did get one thing right – the court is anti-democratic. After all, the court’s purpose is defense of the Republic, in the government of which “democracy” has a major, but not overarching, role. Sometimes that means defending the Republic against democracy, which the founders feared (as “mob rule”) as much as any other form of government.

      Their argument is based on the thoroughly mistaken premise that SCOTUS justices are “representatives” of anyone.

      Things have devolved to the point where seat on the court are assigned to characteristics.

      RBG’s seat was a seat for a woman on the court.

      When Sotomayor leaves the court, there will be noises made about it being the seat for a “Hispanic”, or “Hispanic female”.

      As for Clarence Thomas: that is a seat for blacks, but he is the wrong black guy. His seat will likely be filled by an Obama, an Abrams, or a latter-day Andrew Young. In short: a Negro who knows his place.

I don’t watch. I encourage every person I encounter not to watch. I don’t read about these “people” on twitter or anywhere else.

There is absolutely no reason to give them a voice. I wouldn’t even write a column about them, or perhaps as many columns these disgusting women wrote about Hunter’s laptop. Enough!

    Unfortunately, it is essential to pay heed to what these women, and people like them, are saying. There’s advantage in knowing your enemy, and that means you must observe your enemy in every regard. The goal is to know your enemy well enough to be able to think like him. This objective can’t be reached by ignoring your enemy – ignore your enemy at your peril.

Thank you for watching this so we don’t have to..

So to a Leftist if you don’t follow their stereotypes, your not of the race they are making stereotypes of?

The View: garbage show with garbage talking heads watched by garbage people.

The hags on the view are race traitors, the human race.

This is what is meant by discussions of race and gender.

When I was in high school it was the KKK handing out booklets labeling people race traitors.

Reminds me of pre civil rights era thinking when there existed rules for the different races. Now everyone supposedly lives together but rules to follow based on race and gender. It’s crazy and against freedom.

The failing of normal people was to have ever allowed these destructive drivel-spouting destroyers of social harmony and of the American creed the influence they gained.

The House Unamerican Activities committee of the past had it precisely correct about the left.

“Gender traitor”…hmmm I wonder if a woman defending statutory rape as not being “rape rape” would qualify ?

You can only be a traitor to something if it’s believed you are owned by a certain group in the first place. It is in itself racist and sexist to assume another must think a certain way based on their sex and race.

I’m sure that falls on deaf ears with this group….

Tell me you don’t really believe in diversity without telling me you don’t believe in diversity….

Joy Behar ‘I’ll go first….

The leftist side of this in reverse:

“[Future Biden Black Justice] votes against increased criminal justice funding for more law enforcement in poorer neighborhoods because ze’s not really black and doesn’t care about the people in these neighborhoods.”

If a conservative makes this argument, they are canceled as racist. However, when a white Dem harpy does it, it is for all of the right reasons and she’s just trying to tell those simple black people what’s best for them since she knows better than them.

The key is these leftists think there are required political positions, according to your skin color or sex. So Joyless deigns to dictate to Clarence Thomas and ACB — Free Republicans! — what they must believe in her world. Kind of reminds me of slavery. Democrats simply refuse to give that up! You can take slavery away from Democrats, but you can’t take Democrats away from slavery!
