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.
Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign
The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.
At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.
Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.
“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.
I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.
“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:
This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.
I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.
Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.
“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”
“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.
“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.
Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.
A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.
Election Day will be on September 29.
Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
