Joy Behar, co-host on “The View,” claimed on Monday that radical left-wing terrorist group — not officially designated yet, but that’s what they are — Antifa is “fictitious” and “doesn’t even exist.” Conservative powerhouse Dan Bongino sat down with Sean Hannity and completely shredded Behar and her ridiculous claims.
“Fictitious entities don’t put people in body bags. And that’s what happened in Portland when a member of Patriot Prayer member was killed by a member of Antifa. Joy Behar doesn’t know that. Joy Behar is frankly kind of dumb, so she probably doesn’t read the newspaper, but she may want to read the obituary of that man who was killed by the ‘fictitious’ entity that killed him, a known Antifa supporter,” Bongino said.
According to The Postmillennial, Behar made the astoundingly stupid comments on-air during Monday’s program while the panel was discussing Sen. Ron Johnson, a Republican, who said last week that he didn’t feel threatened during the riot that took place at the Capitol building on January 6, but said that if it had been Black Lives Matter or Antifa, he would have been “concerned.”
“If I was surrounded by people carrying weapons, people erecting nooses, screaming hang Mike Pence, bludgeoning a police officer to death, I might be a little scared. But Ron, no he’s not scared of these people. He’s scared of this fictitious idea of Antifa, a thing that doesn’t even exist. He needs to go. He needs to go—and soon,” Behar railed.
Bongino was ready and willing to counter all of Behar’s baseless claims, discussing his very own troubling experiences with Antifa radicals who threatened him and his wife when they were leaving the White House grounds back in August after Trump gave a speech at the GOP National Convention.
“Attempting to prove her point further, Behar repeated false claims that fallen Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick was bludgeoned to death by Trump supporters—which was erroneously reported by The New York Times,” the PM report said.
Co-host Meghan McCain countered the claims and stated that “Antifa does exist.”
“The Anti-Defamation League has come out and said it’s a both dangerous and counterproductive organization. The actual Portland courthouse was set on fire this very weekend,” said the daughter of late GOP Sen. John McCain.
“What separates Antifa is their willingness to use violence,” McCain went on to say.
“We can say Ron Johnson is an absolute moron. We can say not all activism is violent, but the idea that Antifa doesn’t exist is just, just factually inaccurate and wrong and a lie,” she finished.
Behar then countered McCain’s statement and once again repeated the false claim that Antifa is “not a group or an organization” but is instead a “movement or an ideology,” comments that were originally made by FBI Director Christopher Wray during a House Homeland Security Committee meeting.
However, Wray himself did admit that “Antifa is a real thing.”
“We have any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists, and some of those individuals self-identify with Antifa,” he stated.
Not really? Tell that to all of the people who have been violently assaulted by Antifa or had their property damaged by them, or received threats by individuals who are part of this group.
If Joy Behar were hospitalized she would immediately be declared brain dead.
