Vile ‘View’ Spews Venom on ‘Extremist’ Limbaugh: ‘Normalized Racism’ ‘Weaponized White Male Grievance’

Unsurprisingly, the mostly liberal panel at The View didn’t have anything nice to say about conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh dying from cancer, on their Thursday show.

Following the disgusting example many in the media have set, the opinionated hosts launched nasty tirades against the also opinionated conservative. Sunny Hostin accused Limbaugh of “normalizing hatred and racism” before seeming to reveal her own disgust for whites in the South (apparently the only ones who listened to Limbaugh):

Well, you know, I have been listening to everyone, you know, sort of eulogizing Rush Limbaugh, and I remember listening to him as a kid growing up, and for me he just normalized hatred. He normalized racism, and, you know, I think he really weaponized white male grievance, and, you know, he sort of hardened these, like, rural, white listeners, people, you know, sitting in their trucks in the middle of America, and in the South, and, you know, listening to Rush Limbaugh.

Sound familiar? Hostin basically repeated the same bile that MSNBC’s Joy Reid spewed last night.

Diminishing Limbaugh to a handful of controversial statements, Hostin added that the GOP shouldn’t be proud to claim him because he paved the way for Trump: “This wasn’t someone who was a nice person. This is someone that spewed racism and hatred….You know, I think his legacy is that he paved the way, again, for the modern Republican party, and Trumpism and I don’t know that’s something to be proud of.”

Fellow co-host Sara Haines also was offended by “extremist” Limbaugh who “bastardized” the Republican party:

I was not a fan at all of Rush Limbaugh. I think he paved the way for political extremism and pushed baseless claims. He was the beginning of conspiracy theories. He was, like, the predecessor to the Alex Joneses. A lot of things we’re seeing we don’t like now, he in a sense kind of bastardized the party in a way, because I know there are conservative ideals that Sunny was referencing and, you know, many of us are saying, please speak up and represent those because I don’t like to even think of him as representing Republicans or conservatives. He — he represents very extreme views.

Adding her disgust for his comments towards gay men, Haines pompously declared that Limbaugh had finally faced his “Judgement Day:” 

I have a visceral reaction to so many of his words, but the first thing that ran through my head when he saw the news was, now it’s Judgment Day. At the end of our lives, it’s just us answering for everything we did, with who we were, what we said, and how we treated people, and so now Judgment Day has arrived for Rush Limbaugh. 

Joy Behar recounted her time working as a radio host in the same building as Limbaugh and trashed him as an inauthentic former Democrat who spewed racism and hatred for money.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Well, you know, I have been listening to everyone, you know, sort of eulogizing Rush Limbaugh, and I remember listening to him as a kid growing up, and for me he just normalized hatred. He normalized racism, and, you know, I think he really weaponized white male grievance, and, you know, he sort of hardened these, like, rural, white listeners, people, you know, sitting in their trucks in the middle of America, and in the South, and, you know, listening to Rush Limbaugh, and I mean, this is someone who called our President Barack, the magic Negro, this is someone who talked about an NFL football game as, you know, a gang match between the Bloods and the Crips. This is someone who made fun of Michael J. Fox’s Parkinson’s disease. This is someone who likened a 13-year-old Chelsea Clinton to a dog. 

This wasn’t someone who was a nice person. This is someone that spewed racism and hatred. Yet he is now considered, I guess, the most — an influential person in building the modern Republican party and conservatism. To me, that’s not something to be proud of. I mean, how is that a reflection of conservative values? I thought, you know, conservatism was about small government and family values, and if family values is making fun of black people and a child and a disease, you know, I don’t know where the Republican party is. I, you know, I think his legacy is that he paved the way, again, for the modern Republican party, and Trumpism and I don’t know that’s something to be proud of.

 

SARA HAINES: Well, many people are mourning the loss of him today, and many are not, and I was not a fan at all of Rush Limbaugh. I think he paved the way for political extremism and pushed baseless claims. He was the beginning of conspiracy theories. He was, like, the predecessor to the Alex Joneses. A lot of things we’re seeing we don’t like now, he in a sense kind of bastardized the party in a way, because I know there are conservative ideals that Sunny was referencing and, you know, many of us are saying, please speak up and represent those because I don’t like to even think of him as representing Republicans or conservatives. He — he represents very extreme views. He said a ton of despicable things that we could never — we don’t even have enough time on one show to cover, but some of the most offensive were at the LGBTQ community during the AIDS epidemic. He used to run a regular segment called AIDS updates and mocked the deaths of gay men by playing “I’ll never love this way again,” and as recently as 2020, he said the country couldn’t handle Pete Buttigieg as a president because they would be sick watching him kiss his husband. This stuff, I just, I have a visceral reaction to so many of his words, but the first thing that ran through my head when he saw the news was, now it’s judgment day. At the end of our lives, it’s just us answering for everything we did, with who we were, what we said, and how we treated people, and so now judgment day has arrived for Rush Limbaugh.
