ABC’s The View has become nothing more than a cesspool for some of the most outrageous far-left talking points.
The all-female, predominantly liberal panel makes it a priority to push the far-left agenda, even if just about everything they claim has no factual basis.
And that was exactly the case recently when The View co-host, Joy Behar, declared she honestly believes Antifa is “fictitious” and “doesn’t even exist.”
Throughout her career, both as a comedian and television host, Joy Behar has made it a point to say some utterly ridiculous things.
She has said that Christians suffer from “mental illness,” questioned why a nurse would be wearing a “doctor’s stethoscope,” and bragged about wearing blackface at a Halloween party – even though Megyn Kelly was fired from NBC for less – amongst many other controversial statements.
Most of her rather incoherent babbling has been rooted in her liberal beliefs, and are generally the same tired talking points used by every Democrat politician and talking head in the so-called “mainstream” media.
But earlier this week, Behar went off script, and chose to fabricate and push a conspiracy theory based on the insane idea that the violent, radical leftist group Antifa doesn’t actually exist.
Her conspiratorial claims came in a discussion about Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI), who recently said he would have been more concerned for his safety during the events at the Capitol on January 6 had the roles been reversed at it was Antifa or Black Lives Matter mobs attempting to gain access to the Capitol.
Behar took issue with Johnson’s comments, saying, “If I was surrounded by people carrying weapons, people erecting nooses, screaming “hang Mike Pence,” bludgeoning a police officer to death, I might be a little scared. But Ron, no he’s not scared of these people. He’s scared of this fictitious idea of Antifa, a thing that doesn’t even exist. He needs to go. He needs to go – and soon.”

Of course, outside of her lies about the existence of Antifa, Behar also pushed the completely debunked notion that a police officer was “bludgeoned” to death that day, but even that lie doesn’t hold a candle to how absurd her Antifa conspiracy theory truly is.
As her co-host Meghan McCain pointed out as she countered Behar’s conspiracy theory with facts, just this weekend, Antifa continued carrying out their attacks on the federal courthouse in Portland and once again set it on fire.
“The Anti-Defamation League has come out and said it’s a both dangerous and counterproductive organization,” McCain said of Antifa. “The actual Portland courthouse was set on fire this very weekend.”
“F— the United States!” Antifa try to break into the federal courthouse in Portland. Federal officials just removed the barricades protecting the building after months of #antifa attacks on the building. Now they’re back again. #PortlandRiots

Behar attempted to justify her conspiracy theory by pointing to comments made by FBI Director Christopher Wray in 2020, when he claimed Antifa is “not a group or organization” but a “movement or an ideology.”
Of course, as most liberals do, Behar excluded a key detail from Wray’s comments, mainly the fact that he prefaced the quotes she alluded to by saying, “Antifa is a real thing.”
“We have any number of properly predicated investigations into what we would describe as violent anarchist extremists, and some of those individuals self-identify with Antifa,” Wray said at the time.
Facts are an abstract concept to far-left wing radicals like Joy Behar, though.
For folks like her, facts are what they make them, and as long as it advances their agenda, they’ll completely ignore the truth if needed.
But what’s most obvious from Behar pushing this conspiracy theory is the clear double-standard that exists in today’s media.
Democrats and their media allies have made it a key feature of their playbook to now claim that virtually anything said by conservatives is a conspiracy theory.
But when one of their own pushes a conspiracy theory, the media is silent.
As was the case with most of the nonsense she’s said in the past, Behar will get a pass from Democrats and the media because she’s on their “side.”
Still, that doesn’t change the fact that Antifa is very real, very violent, and very keen on destroying America.
And those facts are anything but “fictitious.”
