Whoopi Goldberg, a host of ‘The View’, is going bonkers left and right these days. And it is no wonder why. Her party is not doing well, and there are no signs of improvement. As such, Whoopi has to blame Republicans even more than she usually does. And she usually blames the Republicans for a not so inconsiderable number of things, so that is really something.
But Whoopi doesn’t just attack the party. She attacks those associated with the party — whether those be justices, everyday Americans, etc. As we shall see today, Whoopi is blaming the NRA, a group frequently aligned with Republican values, for enabling many of the recent tragedies. She is using this as a way to call for more gun control.
Now, we absolutely suffer with the families who were affected by these tragedies. What happened there moves us to condemn evil in all forms. We are not happy with the way society is functioning, producing killers like those in Buffalo and Uvalde at an unprecedented rate.
But we do not turn on our founders and the principles upon which they built our country. These principles guarantee us our Republic. For we, unlike the Democrats, do not assume, as a point of fact, that our founders were dumb.
Here is what she said on the Tuesday airing of ‘The View’:
“Listen, this AR-15’s got to go. I’m sorry… I think about those people up in Buffalo, who are still suffering because they still can’t go shop anywhere because nobody will bring a supermarket where these folks are living. There is too much at stake here, too many lives have been at stake, and too many damn little kids.
I am sick of seeing people talk about, ‘Well, we should do something.’ No, we should do something. And I don’t care, NRA — you’ve got to give that gun up. You can have other yee-haw guns, whatever you want. The AR-15 is not a hunting gun. It is not a gun where you’re going go out and shoot your dinner. This gun is meant to kill — people. That’s what it’s for, and you can’t have it anymore.”
She also alluded to abortion in this strange rant — comparing AR-15 rights with an alleged right to bodily autonomy. But of course, very little connected in this diatribe. That Whoopi has a considerable influence over a large portion of the American public will always perplex us, but that influence is likely decreasing per every rant she makes.
