Joy Behar evokes violence in ‘Democrats always go to a gun fight with a knife’ ‘go with a gun this time’ comments
President Trump’s pick for the U.S. Supreme Court Neil Gorsuch is under massive attack from the left and one discussion on the The View involved the hosts evoking violence for Democrats.
JOY BEHAR: The Democrats always go to a gun fight with a knife. Let them go with a gun this time. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of it being okay for the goose, but not the gander.
Check out the clip below.
While no one believes Behar means ACTUAL violence, the tendency to normalize this type of language lessens the barrier from individuals committing violence.
Behar sounds exactly like a New York Times article titled: “Democrats had a knife, and the GOP had a gun” attacking the Republicans, quoting The Untouchables:
Republicans have subscribed to the Capone school of politics (as Sean Connery fans can recite): “They pull a knife, you pull a gun. He sends one of yours to the hospital, you send one of his to the morgue.”
Later in that post he likens the politics to Saddam Hussein.
Big name politicians in the Senate approved of Gorsuch in 2004: Chuck Schumer, John Kerry, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Dianne Feinstein and others.
