The two sub-intellectual hosts of the view known as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar walked off the set during an argument with guest Bill O’Reilly to the cheers of some in the audience. This is a classic example of how so called progressives are anti-free speech and debate. They could not debate him without shouting and carrying on like grade yard brats. And when that didn’t work, they walked off the set.
Barbara Walters was correct when she said that kind of behavior was wrong and shouldn’t happen. Not on a talk show. Not when the subject was worthy of discussion. The ground zero mosque.
O’Reilly said that Muslims attacked us on 9/11. And that got the two women to go ballistic. They were arguing about the terms, and just about all the women there including quasi-conservative Elisabeth Hasselbeck to state that they should have been called terrorists, not Muslims. But, considering they were Muslims and they did what they did in the name of their religion, disputing it the way they did was nothing but censorship. Walking off the set was a way to try to kill the debate. The pro-Muslim GZM fans do not want the subject to go anywhere except in the direction the proponents of the mosque want it to go.
Obviously, not all Muslims are terrorists or support extremist Islamists. In fact a poll of Muslims showed the majority are opposed to the ground zero mosque because they see what bad will it’s inducing in the American public. The majority of Americans oppose it. But extreme leftists like Behar and Goldberg don’t care what people want and will not allow the debate to continue. They want to shove their opinion down everyone’s throat and label them bigots.
It’s great O’Reilly took it to the View and forced the discussion to happen. But let’s call it like it is. Progressives against freedom of speech need to be outed and chastised for what they are. They do not have the interests of the public at heart. They are in fact, dictators of the public discourse, deciding what will and will not be allowed to be spoken.
As Americans, we can’t allow that sort of thing to go unchallenged. For too long we have and look where it has gotten us.
