“THE VIEW” GIRLS GONE WILD

On today’s episode of the ABC-show, “The View,” Bill O’Reilly said that 70 percent of Americans are opposed to the Ground Zero Mosque. This quickly upset Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, so when O’Reilly was pressed to explain, he said, “Because Muslims killed us on 9/11.” Goldberg answered, “Extremists did that! What religion was McVeigh? There was an extremist as well and he killed people….” Behar then said, “I don’t want to sit here. I don’t. I’m outraged by that statement.”

After Behar and Goldberg walked off the set, Barbara Walters, the co-producer of the show, admonished them for doing so. She also berated O’Reilly, saying, “You cannot take a whole religion and demean them because of what some….” O’Reilly quickly agreed that 9/11 was caused by Muslim extremists, and Behar and Goldberg returned to the set.

Commenting is Catholic League president Bill Donohue:

For years, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg have been painting priests with a wide brush, labeling all of them as molesters (Behar has been pathologically relentless). But today they were “outraged” when an unqualified remark was made about Muslims.

“The View” is so bigoted that I took out an ad in the New York Times in 2007 citing 15 of the most sweeping anti-Catholic comments made in the previous nine months. Never once did Walters lecture her co-hosts that it was wrong to “demean” Catholicism because of a handful of miscreant priests. While they changed their tune for a while, they have since gone back to the sewer, with more than a little help from Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

Just recently, Walters said she was happy that Rick Sanchez was fired for making an allegedly anti-Semitic remark. Now she is upset with O’Reilly for his allegedly anti-Muslim remark. Catholics are still waiting for her to discover anti-Catholicism. We’re also waiting for Walters to instruct Goldberg that McVeigh, though baptized a Catholic, became an agnostic.
