Fans tune into The View for a daily dose of comfort food in the form of predictable Democrat Party talking points.

But on this day, that’s not what fans saw at all.

And Whoopi Goldberg blindsided viewers with one jaw-dropping admission.

Liberal media meltdown over Harrison Butker

The liberal media is trying to cancel three-time Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs kicker Harrison Butker.

Butker – a devoted Catholic – delivered the commencement speech at Benedictine University.

The media pitched a fit over Butker blasting the “diabolical lies” society feeds women about how they must choose careers as the most rewarding vocation, saying that motherhood is what brings the most joy.

Left-wing sports writers like the NFL Network’s Rich Eisen and Monday Morning Quarterbacks’ Albert Breer rushed to condemn Butker, accusing him of wanting women barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen.

The NFL released a statement denouncing Butker for wrongthink.

Fans were shocked to learn that a league, which is around 70 percent black, has a diversity and inclusion czar.

The NFL’s czar made it clear diversity didn’t include thought and that inclusion certainly didn’t mean Catholics when NFL senior vice president and chief diversity and inclusion officer Jonathan Beane told People Magazine “His [Butker] views are not those of the NFL as an organization. The NFL is steadfast in our commitment to inclusion, which only makes our league stronger,”

Whoopi Goldberg defends Harrison Butker

On The View, none other than Whoopi Goldberg defended Butker.

Goldberg took a mature view of the situation explaining that Butker’s entitled to his views and that it’s enough to simply disagree with him.

“These are his beliefs and he’s welcome to them. I don’t have to believe them. Right? I don’t have to accept them,” Goldberg stated. 

Eisen, Breer, and their ilk took the position that the women in attendance at Benedictine College were unable to think for themselves and couldn’t either discern Butker’s message or choose to disagree without liberal elites telling them they should be offended.

Goldberg said it was up to the graduates to make of Butker’s message what they will and that a free society can only function when people have room to disagree.

“The ladies that were sitting in that audience do not have to accept them the same way. We want respect when Colin Kaepernick takes a knee, right? We want to give respect to people whose ideas are different from ours,” Goldberg added.

The attempt to cancel Butker

A petition on Change.org gathered 100,000 signatures calling on the Chiefs to fire Butker.

Goldberg warned against this type of mob mentality stating that all Butker did was express a traditional Catholic view of the world.

“But if this is his belief system. If there are many Catholics who are staunch this way-“ Goldberg began before fellow co-host Sara Haines cut her off.

“A small, small percentage go into the Latin Mass,” Haines stated.

Goldberg disagreed saying the number of traditional Catholics was bigger than Haines thought and trying to whip up an online mob to cancel Butker was wrong.

“I’m just telling you, there are many people who believe this way. And I’m simply saying, rather than write a petition to get him fired–“ Goldberg shot back.

“Don’t get him fired!” Haines said in agreement.

“Well, that’s what I’m talking about,” Goldberg concluded.
