First off, you are hereby forewarned that the recording below involves the ladies of The View, and could cause the usual side effects such as extreme edginess, flashbacks, and post traumatic stress disorder.
Seriously. I watched it 20 minutes ago, and I still can’t get over the feeling that I’ve been smeared with peanut butter and forced to crawl on my hands and knees through a flock of angry geese. It’s mind-boggling to me that some people actually watch The View by choice.
To each his or her own, I guess. I can see how some people might find it entertaining to see Joy Behar walk off the show in a self-righteous snit because Bill O’Reilly said the 9/11 attacks were carried out by Muslims; only to display her own angelic tolerance a few days later by threatening violence against Senatorial candidate Sharon Angle, either directly or indirectly calling her “evil,” a Nazi, a “b*tch,” and a “moron,” and repeatedly damning her to hell.
Anyway, the excruciating honk-fest was in direct response to an Angle campaign ad which accuses the incumbent, Harry Reid, D-NV, of being soft on illegal immigration. Here it is, courtesy of Newsbusters:

I think what all those Einsteins (with the possible exception of Elisabeth Hasselbeck) are trying to say is that Main Street America is populated by herds of vacuous, mentally-challenged, racist idiots who must be soothed and placated because, according to Sherri Shepherd, “irrational fear” that “all the white people are going to get pounced upon by the boogie man” might make them stampede and run amok on Election Day.
“You’re talking about brown people here,” she said, which of course really means: “If you don’t agree with us you are a racist,”
Well, Ms. Shepherd, you can call it fear, but frustrations is a better word. Plural. Many frustrations, that change priority from moment to moment. Currently it is being treated like a four-year-old by a patronizing, primped and powdered television personality with the insight of a carrot.
But it could just as easily have been the frustration of watching more and more people being loaded onto the creaking and swaying American Entitlement Cart when the wheels have collapsed and the horse is on life support.
Or knowing that the southern border has become a war zone and parts of our southwestern states are controlled by armed foreign invaders, and nobody in Washington seems to care.
Or seeing that accusations of racial profiling have rendered enforcement of our laws discriminatory and selective in favor of non-citizens.
Or knowing that our leaders in Washington, including Harry Reid, allow the President of Mexico to come to Washington and dictate how we should enforce our immigration policy.
Or knowing that the federal government sued Arizona for enforcing immigration law when Washington would not.
Or knowing that the American dream is routinely snatched from hardworking Mexican immigrants with baited traps of petulance, envy, and victimization by leering leftists brandishing voter registration forms and welfare applications.
Or the frustration of being called racist for voicing honest concerns that wouldn’t change whether the people involved were purple, yellow, striped, or polka-dotted.
But then again, if Joy Behar thinks Angle should go to hell for bringing up these issues, who am I to argue? Maybe it really is just all about brown people.
