Drama On "The View"! Whoopi, Joy Walk Out on Bill O'Reilly Over Park51

Thursday, October 14, 2010 - 03:30 PM

Did you watch "The View" Thursday morning? Neither did I. But it's certainly worth watching this clip, if only to see two of the hostesses-with-the-mostesses, Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, actually walk off the set of their own show. Is that allowed??

The tete-a-tete-a-tete took place over Park 51/Cordoba House/Ground Zero Monster Mosque. Whoopi and Joy didn't like O'Reilly's opposition to the project, and decided they'd had enough when he said Muslims attacked the Twin Towers (as opposed to saying "extremists" did it).

For extra credit, watch this longer clip at Entertainment Weekly. After the two storm off, Barbara Walters slams them for doing so, then turns to O'Reilly and slams him for equating all Muslims with terrorists. He apologizes, kind of. And Joy and Whoopi return to the sofa after about 90 seconds, suggesting that this was ultimately just a carefully coordinated bathroom break.

The poll question was: Do you agree with Muslim extremists building a victory mosque on ground zero? 70% said NO

On the question: would you agree with a multi cultural center 2 blocks from ground zero to bring better understanding of Islam and to join forces with american Muslims to fight al qaeda and terrorists? 100% Yes

I believe that the same percentage of American's, appalled by building this Mosque, would also be appalled by the building of a Culture Center funded by KKK near the graves of murdered black slaves.

Whoppi should understand the insensitivity of building this NY Culture Center even more then Joy...

the show should be re-entitled The Reckless "View"

Joy and Whoopi were so right to do this - Bill's words were dangerous and unfair - does he really want more moderate muslims to start hating America and Americans. Barbara was wrong - some comments can just not be ignored or even argued with - the comments had to be shown to be utterly wrong and an apology made. Bill wake up! Words are way too powerful to abuse.
