Whoopi Goldberg Calls House Republicans 'Domestic Terrorists'

Share

“The View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg went off on Republicans over their opposition to the Domestic Terrorism Prevention Act.

During an episode of the show Thursday, Goldberg played a series of clips of comments from Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Matt Gaetz (R-Fla.) and Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.).

“We don’t give cover to anything. White nationalism is wrong, we’ve always said so, everyone knows that,” Jordan said.

He added, “But I’ll tell you who does give cover, when the chairman of the Judiciary Committee says Antifa is a myth, that is giving cover.”

Joy Behar responded, “Antifa, what an idiot.”

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

Behar replied, “I guess when they’re part of the problem.”

Goldberg added, laughing, “When the domestic terrorists are voting on the bill.”

Sunny Hostin later suggested “there is no way” those in the Republican Party, especially those in the extreme right-wing of the party would support the bill because it “exposes the party for what it is: The party of insurrectionists, the party that welcomes White supremacists under its tent.”

Should more Republicans have supported the bill?

Goldberg replied, “I thought everybody was against White supremacy.”

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

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) was the only Republican to vote in favor of the bill.

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) cited the January 6 riot at the U.S. Capitol as the reason for the bill.

“I know, as I believe every member of this house knows, that extremist violence can reach anyone, anytime, anywhere, whether it be a place of worship, a grocery store or, as we learned last year, this very hall,” Hoyer said.
