Video: Veterans Day on “The View”

posted at 5:10 pm on November 11, 2008 by Allahpundit

What better way to thank the troops for their service than by reminding them what a colossal waste you think their sacrifices in Iraq have been? The One managed to avoid that in his own wreath-laying today, but I guess he doesn’t care as much as Behar does.

Exit question: Say, how come Joy didn’t mention Afghanistan and the vets who’ve served there in her opening spiel? Click the image to watch.

She’s a PIG!!!

Delaware Vol on November 11, 2008 at 5:11 PM

My mom’s been banned from sending letters to the View. ;)

Illinidiva on November 11, 2008 at 5:12 PM

Do we have to?

PappaMac on November 11, 2008 at 5:12 PM

Hey Joy!

Drop dead!

fossten on November 11, 2008 at 5:12 PM

When is Ann Coulter going to go on The View, btw?

lodge on November 11, 2008 at 5:14 PM

Anyone who watches these simpletons should have their right to vote purged forever. The topics and opinions of these tricks in the past were shared by seventh grade special ed kids who had parents slamming drugs.

Irvin88 on November 11, 2008 at 5:14 PM

Haven’t been punished enough in the past week, Allah?

lorien1973 on November 11, 2008 at 5:15 PM

I refuse to watch this. Ms. Bey-hah has done something I though impossible: she is far more annoying than Rosanne Barr.

cannonball on November 11, 2008 at 5:15 PM

If we stop watching, they will go away!

DJ from MA on November 11, 2008 at 5:15 PM

Joy has no idea how to honor veterans. Who’d a thunk it?

Glynn on November 11, 2008 at 5:16 PM

I couldn’t watch it.

Leaving out Elizabeth, have any of the other 3 ever done anything worth mentioning? Whoopi’s acted some, but in an incestuous industry like entertainment, her recognition lacks any oomph. What have Behar or the other one ever done to warrant even the most brain dead caring what they think?

AubieJon on November 11, 2008 at 5:18 PM

I stuck a stake in it! Why isn’t it dead!?

Grue in the Attic on November 11, 2008 at 5:18 PM

Funny how this ABC News clip was preceded by a Sudafed commercial, showing an actress with her congested head expanding via computer-enhancement.

This is how my head feels when I see The View. Except my head actually does explode.

UltimateBob on November 11, 2008 at 5:19 PM

I know it’s totally childish and stupid, but when I put my mouse over the picture to click it to watch the video, I hovered for a moment and saw that the video was labeled “behar vd” and it made me laugh.

Esthier on November 11, 2008 at 5:19 PM

Naw don’t have the stomach for it.

IT’S THE SOLDIER

It’s the soldier, not the reporter
who has given us freedom of the press.

It’s the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us freedom of speech.

It’s the soldier, not the campus organizer,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

It’s the soldier, not the lawyer,
who has given us the right to a fair trial.

It’s the soldier who salutes the flag, serves under the flag and
whose coffin is draped by the flag,
who gives the protestor the right to burn the flag.

Dear Lord,
Please send Behar over to Iraq or Afghanistan.

GoodBoy on November 11, 2008 at 5:21 PM

I flat refuse to watch. Those yenta’s just refuse to acknowledge the fact that our fine military is the ONLY reason they get paid to do what they do.

Spend some time under sharia, joy, and tell me just how lucky you USED to be…….waste of air.

Sponge on November 11, 2008 at 5:21 PM

Well done Elizabeth. Way to not back down!

Newt just said on Hannity that he will consider running for president in 2012.

AubieJon on November 11, 2008 at 5:22 PM

Sorry, I won’t watch. I know what they will say, I must be in the minority who thinks Ms. Hasellback… bech whatever, is an embarrassment and a weakling. Why be reminded of what I already know?

MNDavenotPC on November 11, 2008 at 5:23 PM

Nice video. This is the first time I felt Elizabeth really took control and gained some respect. Nice!

Esthier on November 11, 2008 at 5:23 PM

Leaving out Elizabeth, have any of the other 3 ever done anything worth mentioning?

AubieJon on November 11, 2008 at 5:18 PM

One of them is supposed to be some sort of legendary vulturous parasite journalist. Can’t remember who.

Darth Executor on November 11, 2008 at 5:23 PM

It’s the soldier, not the campus community organizer,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.

I like that better, for some reason.

Sponge on November 11, 2008 at 5:24 PM

I wouldn’t click anything with Joy in it unless it was my scope. Then I might click the safety off.

abinitioadinfinitum on November 11, 2008 at 5:24 PM

Now see, I don’t like it when people on our side go after people like Michelle Obama on things like looks, or by calling her a “he/she”, or that kind of crap. She’s the wife of the man soon to be the leader of our nation.

Joy Behar on the other hand? A whinging, worthless daytime talk show host?

F*** THAT B****!

MadisonConservative on November 11, 2008 at 5:25 PM

I’d rather have a cactus fired out of a howitzer straight into my ballsack than watch that clip.

Metro on November 11, 2008 at 5:25 PM

I just heard Newts comments as well and Yes Newt we need you to run. Do not consider it do it

Irvin88 on November 11, 2008 at 5:25 PM

Don’t worry, Grue. No one will try to hurt him.

After all, he is The One the world has been waiting for.

I can’t watch the video. I’ve been married twice. I know what shrill, clueless women sound like.

I assumed when Rosie left the View it would be for the betterment of the country. Little did I know that the show would reman just as childish and immature.

Ozark_sky on November 11, 2008 at 5:27 PM

to all those who refuse to click as I would normally do, take it upon yourselves to endure this clip as tribute to those we honor today, they to do things they do not want to do… trust me Elizabeth makes it worth it.

Kaptain Amerika on November 11, 2008 at 5:27 PM

How does anyone watch commericial TV?

I got rid of cable years ago. Whenever I go in a doctors office where it’s playing it’s the most irritating BS I’ve ever heard. Unwatchable.

I’m so glad I dumped the tube.

All you need is a DVD player, Netflix, a local library with decent DVD’s, the Internet, a sports bar to catch the big games and popcorn.

Sanity.

mylegsareswollen on November 11, 2008 at 5:28 PM

If you guys really want to puke, take a look at some of the Veteran’s Day cartoons that some of the libtards are publishing. Sickening.

Esthier on November 11, 2008 at 5:26 PM

Where its normally not my style to comment on things that I haven’t experienced, I’ve experienced enough of her to know that I don’t want to hear her speak ever again, unless its an apology to America AND the armed forces for her actions over the last several years, and I’m pretty sure that’s not in this quote.

As disturbing the thought, I have to agree with

I made it up to two “honor” from Behar the Terrible. Notice how she had to look down for her “statistics”? Where did you learn that from Joy? Your Messiah? Lady your level of class is with the whale droppings in the middle of the Pacific.

Hog Wild on November 11, 2008 at 5:30 PM

AubieJon on November 11, 2008 at 5:30 PM

It makes me so mad when people refer to our soldiers as “boys and girls” as Joy did. Using this reference people are trying to degrade them as if they don’t know or understand the choices they have made. They are men and women, adults, that choose to serve their country. Give them the respect they deserve or shut up.

forest on November 11, 2008 at 5:34 PM

I went ahead and watched. Elizabeth was very sharp. Whoppi stopped the conversation so Joy would not dig herself a bigger hole.

kingsjester on November 11, 2008 at 5:34 PM

Joy likes to stir the sh*t. I never watch the View. She is just a very mad individual. Hasselbeck was right. Whoopie seemed to think so too. I like Whoopie.

sheebe on November 11, 2008 at 5:34 PM

She’s a creature — she really is.

Richard Romano on November 11, 2008 at 5:35 PM

If Joy gets some comeupance, AP needs to tease with that. It makes it sound like the video is just Joy spouting idiocy unchallenged, and who would want to watch that?

frankj on November 11, 2008 at 5:35 PM

These people are just so bloody predictable.

C’mon, View tools. (The Hasslebeck excepted.) Just try, once, not to say what I expect you to say.

Hawkins1701 on November 11, 2008 at 5:36 PM

Anyone who watches these simpletons should have their right to vote purged forever.

I’d you’d told me that before I watched the clip.

The View…proof that liberal opinions are like a**holes, in more ways than one.

gatorgirl on November 11, 2008 at 5:30 PM

“…boys and girls…” Indeed. Denigrate their status as adults, volunteers, men and women….then denigrate their service.

Behar. Where’s her burkha?

coldwarrior on November 11, 2008 at 5:36 PM

It wasn’t off the cuff, she had notes. Dumb as lint.

Well if you hated that don’t read the Daily Kos for Veterans Day or their comments.

I started to watch it, then turned it off.. I can’t bear to listen to anything she says.. She’s a tool and a hack.. Get her off the air.

Did you see when McCain was on the view? Woopie dropped so far in my book (not that she was ever really in my book)…..about as disrepectful as you could get to his face…She’s pathetic as well.

Sponge on November 11, 2008 at 5:39 PM

I so hope that oneday nutcases like Behar come to understand how their political rants embolden the enemy. She should understand what her self-indulgent bullsh*t costs our soldiers. She should have to live with that for the rest of her pitiful life.

msmveritas on November 11, 2008 at 5:40 PM

Terrorist Iraqis are killing our brave soldiers and she has to give us some vague number of Iraqis killed??!! PLEEEEEZE!

As a veteran, I have to say the last thing I want to hear from any of these tools is how the cause I served for is so terrible.

These clowns need to start talking about hairstyles or menopause or something about which they might have a clue.

‘Nuff said.

Okay, I watched it. Give me the cactus I mentioned earlier.

And wtf does Behar know about the “trials and tribulations” of this war or any other?

Memo to Behar: go eat another 19 pies.

And i said all of that without swearing…wow!

dorisd on November 11, 2008 at 5:44 PM

Now I can see how excellent that impression of Behar on SNL was? That guy was exactly like her: miserable, uninformed, and trivial. Have you ever seen someone so utterly dissatisfied with America and life, itself?

Moxie on November 11, 2008 at 5:45 PM

Vile woman.

aero on November 11, 2008 at 5:45 PM

Insipid “celebrities” parroting what passes for conventional “wisdom” among talentless, brain dead, millionaire Marxist, drug addled, perverted, self-identified “elitists” – the View.

A round table of random kindergartens would provide far more interesting and useful banter.

Or even a few strays gathered from the ASPCA.

Utterly worthless people watched only by the insufferably stupid.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep,
though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

MCPO Airdale on November 11, 2008 at 5:48 PM

I rarely see “The View” but I was home sick today. When “The View” came on, I lasted through the beginning of Behar’s tirade, and then I changed the channel. Life’s too short to listen to her vitriol. How one person can spew so much hatred and contempt is beyond my understanding.

If Elizabeth left the show, the show would go off the air. The “give and take” among the women was the only thing that kept it remotely interesting. And now they gang up on Elizabeth so much, it has lost that appeal.

From AP’s link above:

“Let us rededicate ourselves to keep a sacred trust with all who have worn the uniform of the United States of America: that America will serve you as well as you have served your country,” Obama said in a statement. “As your next commander in chief, I promise to work every single day to keep that sacred trust with all who have served.”

Actually, Elizabeth redeemed herself after that putrid display of Obama worship last Wednesday.

She must have been ready for them to say this, and practiced. She came out strong and correct.

Oh and did you ever notice when Elizabeth starts to get the upper hand, Whoopi ends the conversation on the spot.

“Let us rededicate ourselves to keep a sacred trust with all who have worn the uniform of the United States of America: that America will serve you as well as you have served your country…”

As well as you have served your country. Who’s defining well?

tuffy on November 11, 2008 at 6:00 PM

Elizabeth rocks and Kudos to Whoopi for shutting down the conversation on the Cow.
Remember – Especially when Baracho Obama has been coronated as savior. – It is very patriotic to criticize your government, the President and congress. We conservatives have heard that thousands of times in the last 8 years and I think it is time we started being very patriotic to the Obamanation.
