Joy Behar’s lack of relevance to Americans probably didn’t need to be reminded, but that’s never stopped her before.
Behar, who receives substantial compensation for airing her unfounded beliefs on “The View,” simply cannot comprehend how regular Americans could place a higher priority on their ability to put food on the table than dangers to American democracy.
She remarked on Tuesday’s show, according to a Newsbusters transcript, “Well, what’s depressing is that The New York Times released a poll today that says that 71 percent of voters agree that democracy is under threat.”. “But only 7 percent of voters rank a threat to democracy as a major issue this election cycle.”
“I find that so depressing, I can’t begin to tell you.” she said.
Was she trying to win people over? Hopefully not. She did, however, receive some support from co-host Sunny Hostin, who, given his name, should have been more cheery.
“It’s depressing,” she remarked.
“Well,” Behar continued, “you can debate the poll but this is what people are saying. I mean I understand, inflation has gotten people — If you can’t put food on the table it’s very depressing and if you put gas in your car and inflation and rents, everything is piling up because of various reasons.”
She cleverly left out the stimulus money, which most professional economists agree played a substantial role in the nation’s present economic troubles, and instead mentioned the pandemic and the war in Iraq — which she later amended to the conflict in Ukraine — as two of those “various reasons,”
And when I say “most serious economists,” I practically mean everyone else who holds an economics degree besides Paul Krugman.
Yes, Joy, it might be disheartening to discover that you don’t have enough money for transportation, housing, or food. You wouldn’t know the first thing about that, but I can’t argue with your logic in this case: such deprivation is depressing, particularly when it could have been avoided if responsible adults had been making financial decisions.
She rantingly implied that Republicans would instantly abolish all corporate income taxes and allow schoolchildren to go hungry once they regained control of Congress, among other things.
“They’re not going to help you! So, why would you vote for them? And yet I see it’s very close, that people are not understanding what the stakes are,” Before repeating herself, she added: “And I find it sad and depressing.”
To her credit, Alyssa Farah Griffin did fight against what she called a potential “blind spot” among the wealthy co-hosts of “The View,” and she was accordingly attacked by individuals I would euphemistically refer to as her peers. The section can be seen here:

Of course, Americans do, in fact, understand what the stakes are. We understand that “They’re not going to help you!” applies to pretty much every government in the history of governments. That’s why America was founded in such a way as to protect and preserve the freedom of individual Americans to help themselves.
Leftists like Behar want those freedoms eliminated so that they, the group-thinking cultists who worship at the altar of the spirit of the age, can impose upon you what they say is best for you. Some of them are probably sincere in that desire; others are cynical, lying opportunists. I suspect Behar to be the former, but it doesn’t matter — whether they mean it for your good or their own, the leftists’ agenda to deprive you of your freedom is evil at its core. The intentions are irrelevant. CONTINUE READING…
