McCain Blasts Leftists Cheering Man Who Harassed Carlson: ‘View’ Is ‘Equally’ as ‘Incendiary’


On Monday’s The View, conservative Meghan McCain called out her fellow co-hosts and the left for rationalizing Fox News host Tucker Carlson being harassed while he was on vacation with his family. Calling it “indecent”, “gross” and “dangerous” she reminded her peers that if they thought this was okay, they should be fine with people on the right publicly harassing them as well.

Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin were the first to respond to the viral video a Montana man recorded of himself confronting Carlson with nasty accusations. While both hosts admitted they didn’t like the idea of public figures being harassed while on vacation, they also seemed to argue that he deserved it.

Behar remarked, “I mean, he figured everybody is there on his side, but when you are spewing lies that cost people their lives, actually no place is safe for him.” She accused Carlson of being more concerned with “ratings” than viewers’ lives because of his vaccine commentary. She also claimed the man wasn’t a “threat” so “you can’t really fault him on that end.” For her part, Hostin argued Carlson had encouraged public shaming of masks on his show so she “wasn’t surprised” he was getting shamed by others.

Afterwards, McCain was ready with a reality check for her co-hosts, reminding them that people hated them as much as others hated Carlson: 

As incendiary as many people find Tucker Carlson, they find the women on this show equally incendiary for different reasons. So if it’s okay and should be expected, maybe there’s an expectation that wherever we go it’s okay for people to come up to us and scream things and say things.

 

 

McCain went on to blast Democrats like Maxine Waters for encouraging this “dangerous” trend that could and has led to violence, pointing out the Steve Scalise shooting and Carlson’s family being targeted by a mob outside their own home.

She again reminded her co-hosts’ that their soft acceptance of this intolerance could put them in Carlson’s shoes one day, calling it a “very very slippery slope:”

Maybe you guys thought that man was being polite. I thought he was being a total jackass and incredibly rude, and we’re living in a time when people like Steve Scalise are being shot, and wounded to the point where we don’t know if he’s literally going to survive and now he has to walk with a cane because there are people who just aren’t in control of themselves and aren’t in control of their mental health and they want to take out aggression on public figures. It’s incredibly dangerous. I thought it was incredibly dangerous when Maxine Waters said we should go up to public figures and get up in their faces. I think it’s a very very slippery slope.

I know how much people don’t like Tucker Carlson. People don’t equally like Meghan McCain, Joy Behar, Sunny Hostin and Whoopi and Sara. When you’re putting your opinion out there, you’re marking yourself a target. I now feel in my life Ben and I have to talk about what restaurants I feel safe going to, I think about what places I feel comfortable taking liberty to, I have to think about what kind of neighborhood I’m living in. Tucker Carlson’s wife once barricaded herself in their home in their pantry because so many protesters were outside their home, here in Washington, D.C. to try and accost them. This isn’t normal, and I think any rationalization that this is normal or should be accepted in the United States of America is not only indecent, but it’s beyond the pale of what should be–any expectation of any kind of decorum in a society like the United States of America, and anyone who tries to rationalize it is gross, and that man should apologize to Tucker Carlson.

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Right. Meghan, is this the kind of confrontation that is ever justified? 

MEGHAN MCCAIN:  You know, I know you’ve experienced this too, Whoopi because you’ve experienced something similar when we were working together on this show, and I won’t say what happened, but you had an incident where people were coming up to you and we were all scared. Um, I think the problem with any kind of rationale of this being okay is there’s this Winston Churchill quote that says just because the crocodile is eating them doesn’t mean it’s not going to be eating you next. As incendiary as many people find Tucker Carlson, they find the women on this show equally incendiary for different reasons. So if it’s ok and should be expected, maybe there’s an expectation that wherever we go it’s okay for people to come up to us and scream things and say things.

Maybe you guys thought that man was being polite. I thought he was being a total jackass and incredibly rude, and we’re living in a time when people like Steve Scalise are being shot, and wounded to the point where we don’t know if he’s literally going to survive and now he has to walk with a cane because there are people who just aren’t in control of themselves and aren’t in control of their mental health and they want to take out aggression on public figures. It’s incredibly dangerous. I thought it was incredibly dangerous when Maxine Waters said we should go up to public figures and get up in their faces. I think it’s a very very slippery slope.
