Of course, if one of the writers here at RVO stated outright we want to see one of President Obama’s homes burn, we’d be racist and accused of hate speech. But Joy Behar didn’t just say she wanted to see one of Gov. Mitt Romney’s house burn, she had to throw in the Mormon Church into the equation.
Wow Joy, I had no friggin’ clue Romney was a Mormon! So much for toning down the rhetoric!
From Newsbusters, with the audio from Mediaite. Note that Behar is still pissed off Al Gore did not win against Bush (43) in 2000.
MEDIAITE: I saw that you used to be a school teacher. What did you think about what he said about “teachers, firemen, and police?”
BEHAR: What did he say? Tell me what he said.
MEDIAITE: He was making fun of the President for wanting to hire more policemen and firemen and teachers saying, you know, “Didn’t he get the message of Wisconsin that we want less government?”
BEHAR: Oh, less government? That is an idiotic statement. Can I just say that?
BEHAR: I mean, I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. Who’s he going to call, the Mormon fire patrol?
MEDIAITE: Is that a thing?
BEHAR: You know what I mean? Come on. What am I supposed to do if my apartment gets caught on fire? Am I gonna call Mitt Romney to come and put it out? See what I mean?
So Behar wants more government control over everything we do. She wants the government to take care of all of us. Less government is not an idiotic statement, in her entirety, Joy Behar is an idiotic statement. Hey, if she can throw out ad hominem attacks, so can I.
This is what liberals/statists/communists do. Conservatives believes the United States Constitution greatly limits the role of the federal government, and specifically leaves all other “powers” to the people and the states. So when Romney mentions the federal government needs to stop throwing money at firefighters, cops and teachers he is exactly right. But the confused Behar really thinks if the federal government stops funding firefighters, houses will burn.
She thinks if we pass something similar to the Ryan budget, we will “see people on the streets begging for food.” Total bull shit.
She ignores the function of local and state governments – and that is what she wants you to do. Obama and the federal government are your saviors, and nobody else can help you. Vote for socialism!
