Pleasure Behar Insists, ‘Fictitious’ Antifa ‘Doesn’t Even Exist!’

On Monday’s The View, the liberal hosts had been extra upset at Sen. Ron Johnson [R-WI] making incendiary statements about Black Lives Matter and Antifa, than they had been by scandal-plagued New York Governor Andrew Cuomo refusing to resign. 

Co-host Pleasure Behar was reluctant to see Cuomo go, as a result of he had “good factors” and a Republican can be far worse:

What worries me is that if he resigns and quick ahead down the road a Republican turns into the governor of New York state plenty of issues will occur that I will not be proud of. I imply, let’s discuss for a second Cuomo’s good factors. He raised the minimal wage to $15 in New York state. He pushes for gun management on a regular basis, he’s professional same-sex marriage. He was nice throughout Hurricane Sandy. There are issues that he’s executed that I respect, and I do not need some Republican coming in there and overturning these insurance policies and both exonerating or pardoning Trump who’s going to be indicted in New York State. So let’s think twice what we’re doing right here fellow Democrats.

Sunny Hostin additionally needed Cuomo to get his “due course of” (one thing she wouldn’t permit for Justice Brett Kavanaugh.) She referred to as for the media to drive Florida Governor Ron “Demise-Santis,” South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem and Texas governor Greg Abbott to resign too.

However within the subsequent phase, Behar and Hostin had been way more offended at Republican Senator Johnson saying he would’ve been extra afraid on January 6 if it has been “Antifa or Black Lives Matter” storming the Capitol. 

Fuming, Behar declared “fictitious” Antifa, “doesn’t even exist.” She additionally unfold the debunked media delusion {that a} police officer was “bludgeoned to dying:”

If I used to be surrounded by folks carrying weapons, folks erecting nooses, screaming hold Mike Pence, bludgeoning a police officer to dying, I may be a bit scared.  However Ron, no he is not scared of those folks. He is petrified of this fictitious concept of Antifa, a factor that does not even exist. He must go. He must go. And shortly.

As every host declared the Republican, a racist, Hostin defended BLM as a peaceable motion. She additionally backed up Behar’s declare that Antifa was made up:

He stated it out loud, ‘I’m not afraid of insurrectionists who stormed our Capitol and tried to upend our democracy, however I’m afraid of black folks peacefully protesting in keeping with their God-given Constitutional rights.’ He ought to be ashamed of himself. He additionally doubled down really to ABC Information and principally stated, effectively, sure, as a result of the Black Lives Matter protests and Antifa, this fictitious Antifa, there have been 570 — out of 77,000 protesters, 570 changed into violent riots that killed 25 folks. He was citing this knowledge from the Armed Battle Location and Occasion Information Challenge. That undertaking really responded and stated he was bastardizing and twisting that knowledge as a result of really, the Black Lives Matter protests weren’t violent. They had been really not violent and there was aggressive intervention by police, counter demonstrators like militia teams and automobile ramming assaults that made these protests violent. Not black people. Not black folks. I’d say, you recognize, cease being afraid of black folks exercising their constitutional rights, Ron Johnson…

Later, conservative co-host Meghan McCain tried to right her co-hosts’ clearly false statements. 

“Antifa does exist. The Anti-Defamation League has come out and stated it is a each harmful and counterproductive group. The precise Portland courthouse was set on hearth this very weekend,” she identified including she had pals who’ve been reporting on Antifa’s violence “for months” and one was harm by these activists.

Summing up, she concluded, “We are able to say Ron Johnson is an absolute moron, we are able to say not all activism is violent however the concept that Antifa does not exist is simply, simply factually inaccurate and fallacious and a lie.”

Behar didn’t like being corrected. She jumped again in on the finish of the phase to double down on her false assertion.

“I simply wish to make clear that Christopher Wray who’s the FBI director says that Antifa is an ideology, not a company,” she acknowledged, including that they weren’t within the Capitol.

McCain shot again: “I’m not saying they had been concerned within the Capitol siege, I’m saying they exist!”

Behar tried to bow out of the dialog with, “I am executed. I stated my factor. You stated yours.”

However McCain held her toes to the hearth: “You stated it was a fantasy! You stated Antifa doesn’t exist and it’s a fantasy!” 

Because the pair continued to argue, the present minimize to industrial.
