Whoopi Goldberg labels House GOP members ‘domestic terrorists’

(Video: ABC)

The ladies of “The View” sat down on Thursday and it didn’t take long for co-host Whoopi Goldberg to refer to House Republicans as “domestic terrorists.”

The discussion began when the group noted that the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act had passed Wednesday with the support of all Democrats, but only one Republican, Adam Kinzinger, R – Illinois. This legislation will give the government more authority to “monitor, analyze, investigate, and prosecute domestic terrorism,” per ABC News.

Goldberg opened by rolling a clip of some of the back and forth that took place during the debate of the bill, including Rep. Jim Jordan of Ohio accusing Democrats of “giving cover” to Antifa by calling the group a “myth.” When the clip was finished, Joy Behar called Jordan an “idiot.”

“When did Washington really get to be a place where stopping domestic terrorism is divisive?” Goldberg asked, completely missing the point.

“I guess when they’re part of the problem,” Behar chortled in response.

“When the domestic terrorists are voting on the bill,” Goldberg shot back, also laughing.

“The bill was put together to take care of targeted folks: Asian folks, Jews, women, Blacks. And [Republicans] just said, ‘No, no. We’re gonna create this bill, we’re gonna put it forth, we’re gonna get people to say to it, and then we’re gonna vote it down.’ So when you’re thinking about what direction we’re going in, just know where you’re being protected and how you’re not being protected,” Goldberg continued.

At a different point in the conversation, fellow co-host Sunny Hostin insinuated that Republicans voted against the bill because “white supremacists” are their voting base.

“There is no way that the Republican Party, especially those in the extreme right-wing of the parties, are going to vote for this bill because it exposes the party for what it is,” she said. “The party of insurrectionists, the party that welcomes white supremacists under its tent, and that is what changed.”

“I thought everybody was against white supremacy,” Goldberg responded.

“It’s hard to take a stand against it when those are your voters,” Hostin retorted.
