It’s never a surprise when one or more of the womyn of The View howl out some sort of offensive and stupid screed. Doing that is what their show is all about. Still, sometimes one of them goes far enough to be noteworthy. In this case Joy Behar.
Yeah, Behar’s Whitesplaining about how America is woefully racist to Sen. Tim Scott – who quite definitely Black – is noteworthy for its idiocy, arrogance, condescension, and actual racism.
Now, Tim Scott, he does not seem to understand â€” and a lot of them donâ€™t seem to understand the difference between a racist country and a systemic â€” systemic racism. They donâ€™t seem to get the difference. Maybe itâ€™s not a racist country. Maybe Americans, the majority, are not racist. But we live in a country with systemic racism.— Joy Behar
The fact that Tim Scott cannot acknowledge this is appalling. How can you go out there and say that when you just said two minutes ago that you were the object and the victim of discrimination? And then, he says this is not a racist country. At least acknowledge that there is systemic racism. Thatâ€™s what I wanted to hear from him, and he didnâ€™t say it.
Then, this bit of hooting and screeching is coming from a womyn who both wore “blackface” to an event and defended it as “‘dressing as a beautiful African woman for Halloween.'” And too, her audience is primarily made up of the same sorts that derided Senator Scott as being “Uncle Tim” because he wasn’t enough of a Field Negro for their tastes.
Still though, unless Behar, her ilk, and her audience are going to claim that, due to Scott’s apparent lack of sufficient hatred for America and White Race, he’s not a Black, this is Whitesplaining and very much not Staying In Her Lane.
Funny, I thought the above behaviors were each and all enough to get the zealots of #CancelCulture out in force. Hmmm….
