The “View” Ladies Demonstrate Their Own Bigotry Against The Truth

The firestorm surrounding Bill O’Reilly’s appearance on “The View” last Thursday continues to burn.
Co-hosts Whoopie Goldberg and Joy Behar had sparked the firestorm when they walked off the stage in a hissy fit because O’Reilly had made the politically incorrect but accurate remark, during his appearance on their show, that Muslims attacked us on 9/11.
The ladies of “The View” were not done with the controversy. They attacked O’Reilly in absentia yesterday, with Whoopie Goldberg saying that she was afraid that she could not control herself if she remained on stage and Behar saying that she walked out to protest O’Reilly’s “bigotry” against Muslims.
The only real bigotry on display on “The View” was the ladies’ bigotry against the truth. The are engaging in Islamic correctness,which demonizes any criticism of any aspect of Islam or the linking of Islam to terrorism.
Indeed, with all of this Islamic correctness on view on ”The View,” I expect that the hosts of the show will invite Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran, as an honored guest the next time he is in New York to address the United Nations. He deserves a seat right next to Joyless Behar. After all, just like Behar, he also believes that blaming Muslims for the 9/11 attack is an example of bigotry. Ahmadinejad can even explain to “The View’s” listening audience why he thinks 9/11 was really an inside job by the U.S. government.
The truth is that Muslims did attack us on 9/11. They were trained and funded by other Muslims operating with impunity in the Taliban-run Islamic nation of Afghanistan.
Perhaps O’Reilly could have been more precise and added the word “terrorists” every time he said that Muslims attacked us on 9/11. But that still would not have satisfied the politically correct crowd who refuse to use the words Islam and terrorism in the same sentence.
Nobody in their right mind, which includes O’Reilly, is saying that all Muslims, or most Muslims, are terrorists. Nor, to state the obvious, do all Muslims or most Muslims condone the killings of innocent civilians on 9/11. In fact, a major Gallup poll shows the opposite to be the case, although this same poll found that the vast majority of Muslims blame the West for conflicts with the Muslim world rather than look inward to what is wrong within the Muslim world itself.
The fact remains that those who committed the worst attack in history against civilians on our homeland were Muslims inspired by Islamic ideology. And the fact is that many more Muslims danced in the streets to celebrate the 9/11 killings, while the ‘silent majority’ of Muslims said to be opposed to the attacks were virtually inaudible in their condemnations of the attacks.
