Whoopi Goldberg, former actress and comedian from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Sister Act, and many other projects, has said a long, long list of crazy stuff ever since she started her co-hosting gig on The View back in the ancient days of the dinosaurs, but her latest meltdown over GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene certainly takes the taco.
Apparently, according to the Conservative Brief, Goldberg, a communist-in-training, wants to see Greene tossed in the gulag for a recent quip that she made. Man, the radical left is getting bolder and bolder, aren’t they? Saying something like this would’ve garnered a massive negative reaction almost instantly from folks on both sides of the aisle because once upon a time, Americans shared a belief in the importance of free speech. Those days are now over, thanks to liberal indoctrination of our culture through entertainment and education.
“If we had done this, engaged in this in any way, we would be facing charges. This woman gets to come and talk about taking over the country, and she’s not behind bars. How does that work?” the host of “The View” stated during the program.
“You think this is funny? You think this is a joke? You were going to war, you were talking about a coup, you were overthrowing the government. That’s what you’ve been talking about, don’t you hear it?” she ranted, smoke practically roiling out of her ears.
And, of course, fellow co-host Joy Behar decided this would be the perfect time to add her two cents to the conversation, which I’m sure everyone was just positively dying to hear.
“She also doesn’t seem to know what sarcasm means,” she blabbed. “When you use sarcasm, you’re saying the opposite of what you mean. This is an example of sarcasm, ‘Boy, that Marjorie Taylor Greene is brilliant. She should be in Mensa.’ That’s sarcasm. What she said was not sarcasm.”
“Go back to college and learn a little more. And then we’ll talk. I was reading this weekend about other countries,” she continued. “In Peru, the President of Peru, this is so interesting to me. He tried to dissolve the government and seize power. They arrested him that day — that day.”
“And in Germany this week, there was a group of people who tried to overthrow the government in Germany, they’ve all been arrested. One of them was from a noble family before the war, the big one, when he was in power and he was the nobility, and he was the aristocrat. Now he’s selling real estate, so he’s very annoyed,” she added. “And he was one of those people trying to overthrow the government. In those countries, which are democracies, Trump would’ve been in jail three years ago.”
So what was the quip that Greene made that has everyone so up-in-arms? Apparently she was mocking people who have made the ridiculous claim that she planned the January 6 attack at the Capitol building. Again, these people are clearly mentally ill. There’s no other explanation.
“Then Jan. 6 happened. And next thing you know, I organized the whole thing, along with Steve Bannon here. And I will tell you something, if Steve Bannon and I had organized that, we would have won. Not to mention, it would’ve been armed,” the Georgia Republican joked.
“See that’s the whole joke, isn’t it? They say that whole thing was planned and I’m like, are you kidding me? A bunch of conservatives, second amendment supporters, went in the Capitol without guns, and they think that we organized that?” she added.

GREENE SAYS SHE “WOULD HAVE WON” JAN. 6 ATTACK: After Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene claims the outcome of the Capitol insurrection would have been different if she was in charge and later called her comments sarcasm, #TheView panel weighs in. https://t.co/cVclFZyKV0 pic.twitter.com/nhwVGPK1Es

The division people like Goldberg continue to stir up in this country is what is to blame for all of the fear-mongering and other assorted issues that are becoming common place in our culture today.
We need to stop trying to transform one another into demons to be battled and accept that we may not always agree with one another, but all of us deserve basic human respect.
