Is this rich, or what? Joy Behar has been nominally “religious” in the past, only alluding to the fact that she’s Catholic, but when it comes to all others besides herself (see “Republicans” or “Conservatives”), religion has always been a bad thing.
Yet today she seems to go whole-hog (pun intended) to defend Obama’s recent National Prayer Day Breakfast speech, where he tries to invoke scripture, saying that Jesus Christ would be in favor of his wealth redistribution plans via increased taxes on the wealthy, i.e.,”socialism.” And Joy finds Jesus.
She argues with Elisabeth Hasselbeck that the right must have forgotten the “meek shal inherit the earth” part of the bible.
Joy, you should be very careful citing scripture, especially if you don’t know it yourself.
What does the meek inheriting the earth have to do with Jesus supporting taxing the wealthy? What about the passage from 2 Thessalonians, 3:10 “For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat?”
Joy, thou doth not knowest where thy speaketh from.
Whether she is or not, I’m using her own tactics and words against her (and her fellow co-hosts). On the upcoming Barbara Walters “10 Most Fascinating People” special, one of the people Barbara interviews is former GOP primary candidate Herman Cain. Also interviewed in the special is Syrian President, Bashar al-Assad. When Barbara brings that up to discuss with her fellow View co-hosts, Joy immediately leapt at the chance to disparage Herman Cain, asking Barabara of whom she was most afraid …Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad or Herman Cain? Apparently Joy Blowhard is more afraid of a black man than she would be a brutal Hezbollah terrorist.
Joy, when are you going to realize that you are not funny? Bashar al-Assad is a terrorist leader and sympathizer of Hezbollah, a proxy terror group for Iran, and you are trying to equate someone like that to the unfairly maligned Herman Cain, who is a devout Christian, married for 43 years to his wife, Gloria? Assad’s goon squads have killed thousands of dissidents in Syria who have protested the dictator’s decades-long rule, yet Herman Cain is merely being ACCUSED of inappropriate behavior with mostly unknown women, all of whose claims can be clearly disproved given the chance for an appropriate investigation.
I was going to type “I am absolutely stunned by this man’s ignorance,” but then I re-viewed the tape during editing….sad fact is, I am not stunned by it. What I am stunned by is The View’s harpie audience applauding like seals, buying into his garbage about what the Tea Party wants and what the GOP is willing to do regarding the debt-ceiling debate. He also gets it completely wrong as to what is holding up a deal being reached, and how significant the Tea Party is or not.
Needless to say, Joy Behar gets in her needles about Social Security. What are you worried about, you stupid fool? You have plenty of money, and Social Security shouldn’t even been on the TABLE for people of your financial stature! I have no delusion that SS will be there for me in any form whatsoever.
Also of note is Whoopi’s lack of reaction regarding raising taxes, seeing as how she’s recently been a vocal opponent of paying too damn many taxes herself. Whoopi, you brought up the Social Security issue, but you should have known better to follow up with an ‘I thought our Social Security withholdings were kept in a lockbox?’ argument, but you didn’t. What’s up with that?
Today on The View, Mike Huckabee was on, and during the chat, Joy Behar harangued him about his party being the party of “no,” wondering if saying “no” was only going to cause gridlock “to the max” in Congress (hey, Joy… sometimes we are spared from more harm when Congress is doing less). Anyway, the Gov. then proceeded to inform her why “no” was something that the voters actually asked for this past election, specifically noting Obamacare.
Joy apparently is one of those dolts who thinks a 26-year-old is still a child, who should be able to suck off of their parents’ (or the government’s) teat because they just can’t manage at such a young, tender age. /sarc
Then Ms. Blowhard moved on to a recent piece by billionaire Warren Buffett and others who say that they, as millionaires and above, should pay more taxes. The Gov. then proceeded with the further education of Ms. Joy by letting her know that of the 270+ thousand millionaires in the U.S., only 40 have come out publicly saying they agreed with Buffett and that crew.
This week, a lot of you all heard about Rick Sanchez being canned from CNN for calling Jon Stewart a bigot, and saying Jews owned CNN and all the major media companies. Well, this became a topic of discussion on The View this week, Barbara spoke up and said “good for CNN, they fired him and they should have.” This prompted the sea-cow Behar to mutter “I wonder if Fox [News] would have fired him?” Sherri managed to get a brief comment in, but Elisabeth can’t let it go and she asked Joy “what do you mean?” Joy sheepishly replies “I’m just wondering what another network would have done.”
Uh-huh, that’s what I thought Joy. Even some comments and assertions you make are just too much for most folks, and Elisabeth called you out on this one. Would have been a tough argument to make that you think Fox News would have kept an anti-Semite on board. Good job, ‘Lisabeth!
