Joy Behar’s rhetoric against Nevada Senate Republican nominee, Sharron Angle, went over the line when she attacked her on “The View” Tuesday. Behar, a strong-willed liberal didn’t hesitate in calling Angle a “bitch” several times succinctly on national television. It’s only been two weeks since Joy Behar had a spat with Bill O’Reilly on “The View” that made headlines. She’s having an issue taking her own advice when it comes to put downs and extremes and lumping people into a category.
Behar was blatantly rude when she labeled the Nevada Senate nominee a bitch and a racist. Everyone knows Joy Behar is an ardent left-wing supporter, but to go out of her way and call Sharron Angle such a demeaning name was low, even for her.
When she and Bill O’Reilly had a live debate over Muslim terrorists attacking Americans on 9/11, Behar abruptly got up from her seat and walked off stage with “View” co-host, Whoopi Goldberg. Both disagreed with Bill O’Reilly’s way of saying Muslims were the terrorists behind 9/11. O’Reilly knew his audience was aware he in no way meant all Muslims, but Behar was insistent O’Reilly was an idiot and a bigot.
Sharron Angle is the one Behar is insulting now on a personal level. Behar won’t take her own advice of being tolerant, civil, and dealing with the issues. If she disagreed with Sharron Angle’s televised campaign ads in Nevada, why didn’t she just say she thought the Senate nominee could have made a better choice? Joy Behar ripping Sharron Angle apart over her choice in ads would have gone a lot further than saying “she’s going to hell, this bitch!”
Sharron Angle may have proven her best message yet when she sent Behar a beautiful floral arrangement on “The View.” The surprise was in Joy’s dressing room Wednesday morning reading:
Joy, raised $150,000 online yesterday. Thanks for the help! Sincerely, Sharron
Behar wasn’t amused, which wasn’t all too surprising. Come on, it was funny. What did she expect after attacking her publicly Tuesday? There is a whole other side in politics out there and those that were undecided just made up their minds on who they’ll support.
Joy Behar may think to take her own advice and not lump anyone in categories of going to hell or calling them degrading names. She should have taken to Bill O’Reilly’s wise words, “listen and you’ll learn.”
