Joy Behar Calls Sharron Angle a “Moron” and “Bitch” on The View


After taking Bill O’Reilly to task for a racist conflation he made on The View about Muslims and 9/11, Joy Behar proved she’s consistent by blasting Sharron Angle for an inflammatory political ad on Tuesday’s show. Angle, the Republican contender for Nevada’s Senate seat (currently held by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid) released a campaign spot portraying Latino youth as dangerous and threatening to innocent white children. Behar criticized Angle on The View, in the kind of entertaining display you won’t be seeing on The Talk. Watch after the jump!

    What a mean woman. If that would have been Elizabeth saying that about Michelle Obama, Joy would have been on her like white on rye. Maybe she needs to look into the mirror before throwing around names.

    [quote=Jamey Giddens]Michelle Obama didn’t make a campaign ad illustrating Latinos as fearful predators.[/quote]

    My only problem with it is that Joy made the same type of nasty and bigoted generalization, when she implied that if Angle said the same type of thing in a Latino neighborhood that she would get beaten up. Instead of just saying that the ad was offensive and ignorant, Joy just reinforced the stupid idea that Latinos will handle any problem with violence.

    I agree that Sharon Angle isn’t qualified to be a U.S. Senator (it shows you how little respect that the voters of Nevada have for Harry Reid that she’s doing as well as she is and may win) but to call her a “bitch” and a “moron” is that the best argument you have? All that does is energize Angle’s base and give them more motivation to go to the polls, so the “moron” here, I think is Joy Behar.

    Joy, Joy, Joy……..Kudos to you!
    I think you have earned another enemy.
    Jamey thanks for pointing out Sharon Angle’s bigoted ad.
    Some of us either have short-term memory or choose to have short term memory when it comes to politicians.

    THe ad is lousy, but Joy is classless. I would never declare my refusal to pray for someone, even people I dont like. I would also love to see what Joy’s reaction would be to the commercials John Dingle has run here in Michigan – he has older person after older person speaking in these frail voices saying that his opponent is going to cut off their Social Security. At least with Sharon Angle while the pictures are offensive, the content of the ad is correct – Nevada’s citizens of ALL races are losing out on jobs to illegal immigrants most of whom are coming in over our southern border. Conversely JD’s adds are a total distortion, as none of the proposals being offered up to reform Social Security has application for current recipients. Its fearmongering designed to scare the elderly into supporting more of the same.

    What is amazing about this dimwitted woman is that she can spew her venom when the person is not sitting next to her. She is not entertaining, funny, or even intelligent when her argument is to call people names. Furthermore, if she would show outrage over all ads that are offensive regardless of party, she might be more credible. From what I have read there is documented proof that Behar is a bigot herself regarding people who pray or those that are christian. I don’t live in Nevada but I am informed enough to know that the jobless numbers are through the roof there. Reid needs to answer to that as do all politicians who fail the people they serve rather than serve themselves. Ms. Behar is in for a treat on Election Day. She should be a raving lunatic by then.

    I can’t stand Joy Behar anymore. She use to be funny, but now I find her to be whiny and annoying. She has been telling the same joke for like a decade and her arguments are weak. I’m getting to where I can still Elizabeth more than Joy and that is bad…

    Sharron Angle is dumb as a box of rocks. I would hate to choose between her and Harry Reid. Crappy choices.

    Why even bother in engaging in discussion with the DC writers and contributors. In their world all conservatives or non-liberals are racists, bigots, sexists or homophobes. You will never see them praise or defend a conservative EVER.

    On the clip, Joy Behar is nothing more than a spiteful and bitter person. I have never seen a person, who supposedly condems hate, have so much hatred for anyone that has a different point of view. She is like the female Bill Maher. They believe the following: All liberals = smart. All conservatives = dumb. The better clip to write and post about was Hollywood leftie George Clooney putting Maher in his place when he said conservatives aren’t sympathetic to the plight of others.

    What’s sad are the posters defending this disgusting ad by Sharon Angle. I feel bad for the people of Nevada. Racism still exists and will never go away.

    One can certainly offer an opinion or response to a political issue or representative it is how you go about it that matters. Rather than using the m or b word that Joy used how about ill informed or not having all the facts would be far more classy. There are many varying degrees of liberal or conservative voters and people out there to put labels or assumptions because of how one votes one way or the other is non productive and is prejudicial.

    Smitty I dont see anyone praising the ad – I just dont think one ad necessarily means that she is a racist nor do I think being concerned about ILLEGAL immigration makes one a bigot. You have to remember she probably has a bunch of DC campaign strategists talking in her ear about how to run a campaign and Personally I agree with Dyllan, neither choice really appeals to me. All I know is that ultimately Harry Reid is leading an agenda that is bankrupting this nation and I think it is obscene to continue to foist our CURRENT issues on to future generations. THAT is my number one issue.

    Where I think you are seeing some negativity is the manner in which Joy voiced her objections to the ad. If she is not a prayerful person, then she doesnt pray for anyone – thats her choice and I respect that – but if she IS a prayerful person then she knows that we are to pray all people even our enemies. You can pray that they become more tolerant, you can pray for them to have a greater understanding of the world and to become more loving, but to say someone is a beyotch and that you would never pray for them is spiteful and I agree with Hoosier that is hypocritical to speak out against hatred with hatred of your own. I also question what shows like the View really contribute to the national political discourse. To me its just name calling and screeching instead of real dialog and debate. Joy knows that when she throws a temper tantrum like this she gets press. I dont even think its so much righteous indignation or “snapping” so much as its a calculated ploy for ratings.

    Hoosier Daddy lets clear this up: You don’t know ALL of us. Just because you hear us on a podcast doesn’t mean you know what or how we (DC) feels on things outside of the daytime soap genre.

    The way Joy did it was perhaps not the best way ever but I understand her reaction as the ad is totally revolting. If this is not “racism” what is ?

    So team Joy all the way, because Angle should be ashamed of herself for allowing such ads … Disgusting … What is next ? Our political ads have fallen so low,I can’t believe it …

    Oh my, the women of the View are at it again. At leas they’re good for the lol’s! I’m happily surprised that Elizabeth said she thought the ad was wrong, but the fact that she thinks people won’t get pulled in by this type of gimmick shows how little she really knows. Joy would’ve done better to preface her statement wit an “In my opinion,” but still I get why she was angry.

    Go Joy all racist should be called out for what they are and point on the spot. As for Angle’s supporters I could care less those who follow a racist must share the same sentiment.
