The View From Here

I never watch the View. The women they have on there are the kind of women I do not want to be associated with, even through a television transmission.

Clips I’ve seen show a whiny, mean spirited, gossipy group of females who would be more at home in front of a witch’s cauldron than an audience of Americans. There is no need to submit oneself to that ugliness and torture any day of the week.

But to people who pay attention to the news, the wretched show makes news occasionally. It’s never any good news – say, one of them has a positive idea free of politics that might actually help someone. It’s usually a hit job on everyday people who still hold American values outside of the New York/LA/District of Corruption axis.

Although Whoopi Goldberg and former alum Rosy O’Donnell have done lots of damage, “comedian” Joy Behar gets the award for most offensive and obnoxious. This week she earned another badge with her remarks about Vice President Pence.

The Dailywire reports on the offensive episode:

…Propagandist Sunny Hostin, who identifies as Catholic, calling his belief in God “dangerous.”

“When you have a Mike Pence who now puts this religious veneer on things and who calls people values voters, I think we’re this a dangerous situation,” Sunny said. “Look I’m Catholic. I’m a faithful person, but I don’t know that I want my vice president, um — speaking in tongues and having Jesus speak to him.”

It was at that moment that the show’s most contemptuous host, Joy Behar, jumped in and called Pence mentally ill for his faith.

“Like I said before, it’s one thing to talk to Jesus,” Behar said. “It’s another thing when Jesus talks to you.”

“Exactly. That’s different!” Hostin said enthusiastically.

“That’s called mental illness if I’m not correct. Hearing voices,” Behar continued.

Hostin’s “Catholicism” is questionable. She brought that up as a ploy to cover her attack. Lots of people who are “Catholic” don’t really believe what the Church says nor even participate in attending Mass and the sacraments. Shame on her.

Meghan McCain later admitted that Behar’s remarks made her “uncomfortable.” But not, evidently, uncomfortable enough to say something at the time.

I don’t know about Behar, but she is like one of the monkeys in the zoo who enjoys throwing poo at the other monkeys.

If the women of the View were introspective, they might take a moment to ponder why they haven’t ever heard God talking to them. Is it them? If others do hear God, why haven’t we? That’s really the question a thoughtful, faithful person might ask.

Not likely, though, even if he used a megaphone.
