On Tuesday’s broadcast of “The View,” co-host Joy Behar made an assertion about former President Donald Trump’s supporters, claiming that they support him based on racism and a desire for taxes and power.
“He threatened on a Veterans Day speech this past weekend, Trump threatened to, ‘Root out the radical left thugs that live like vermin within the confines of our country.’ That is when you start talking about people as vermin. That means that you have dehumanized them and the next step is extermination. That is extermination talk,” she said.
The Democratic party has frequently referred to President Trump and other Republicans as “Nazis” in an effort to delegitimize them.
Behar went on to say, “The Biden campaign stated, ‘On a weekend when most Americans were honoring our nation’s heroes Donald Trump parroted the autocratic language of Adolf Hitler and Benito Mussolini.’ It is not hyperbole to suggest that he is following in the footsteps of fascist dictators.”
“Why do people still vote for him? I question myself,” she continued. “Every day, I ask myself the question. It’s about racism and taxes. And the Republican Congress, it’s about retaining power and being in their jobs. That’s all they are about. I think what you’re saying, and we must do something about it now.”
Meanwhile, the radical left has been linked to a significant increase in anti-Semitism following Hamas’ deadly attack on Israel last month, resulting in 1,400 fatalities and 250 hostages taken.
Last fall, then-candidate Biden made a visit to Philadelphia to express his concerns regarding the “MAGA Republicans,” an apparent reference to supporters of former President Trump.
“We must be honest with each other and with ourselves,” Biden said at one point. “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”
“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution,” he claimed. “They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election.”
“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden falsely claimed.
