Joy Behar, one of the co-hosts of ABC’s “The View,” declared on April 20, 2020 that protesters who carry firearms are “terrorists.”
She was specifically referring to protesters at rallies against government-imposed shutdowns in response to the Wuhan virus pandemic.
“These people are being egged on by right-wing media people like Alex Jones and Rush Limbaugh. Why are you bringing guns to a rally?” Behar inquired.
You want to call yourself protesters, leave your guns at home. Those are terrorists who bring guns to things — to rallies. I don’t trust that at all. And don’t listen to these people.
Behar expressed her sympathies for people who lost their jobs.
The co-host continued:
I really do, but they have to understand that they can infect other people, and, you know — you know, to paraphrase Patrick Henry, give me liberty and give me death is what they’re basically proposing, because a lot of people are going to die because of this behavior, you know? And it’s already been shown that self-quarantining or whatever you want to call it, besides distancing and PPEs, has been working. It works.
I was looking up Sweden, my favorite — one of my favorite countries. Well, they really screwed up. They have had this — this policy where everyone can go out and do what they have to do and use your own judgment. Don’t gather in groups of more than 50 people, which is a lot of people, by the way. They have closed the schools, yes, they have, but people are in restaurants.
Now they have 17 times the rate of their fellow Scandinavian countries. Norway, Finland, et cetera. So it has not worked. It doesn’t work. Stay at home.
Another co-host, Sunny Hostin, blamed President Trump of inciting violence with his “Liberate Michigan,” “Liberate Minnesota,” and “Liberate Virginia and save your great 2nd Amendment,” tweets that he posted in the last week.
And to Joy’s point, you know, you saw protesters with guns, and I think, you know, he’s in a sense, implying an incited insurrection. I think the argument can be made that he is inciting violence by these tweets. He’s inciting government insurrection, and many people are saying, well, it’s his free speech.
“But the Supreme Court has found many times that if you are inciting lawlessness that’s leading to violence, that that type of speech isn’t protected. And so I’m just shocked that we have the president of the United States, again, inciting this kind of behavior, inciting these protests,” Hostin remarked.
The media is carrying water for draconian shutdown measures.
At this point, it doesn’t care about the economic impact of such measures so long as they give an opportunity for the Left to attack Trump.
Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016
Coulter tells it like it is.
Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.
Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.
Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.
As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.
Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.
She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.
also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”
She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.
The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.
Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.
