Angry Over GOP Win in Virginia, ‘View’ Blames White Women Afraid of ‘History’

A surefire sign that you’re losing an argument is when you resort to personally attacking your opponent. After Democrats lost in Virginia’s gubernatorial election last night, the media has pulled out the race card from 2016, saying that the Republican candidate won because of racist whites (even though Republicans also elected the first black female lieutenant governor.) 

That pity party continued on The View Wednesday where they discussed the Virginia race. For the second day in a row, the liberal co-hosts shouted down their conservative guest host, NFL reporter Michele Tafoya, for pushing back on their DNC talking points about Critical Race Theory and education.

Tafoya began by assessing the economy was one of the most crucial issues moving voters to vote for Republicans. “33% of voters coming out of those votes said economy was their number one choice. That was number one. It’s the economy,” she stated.

But the liberal hosts didn’t want to concede that the GOP had a winning message. Joy Behar argued Democrat candidate Terry McAuliffe had been hurt by Democrats in Washington unable to get Biden’s agenda accomplished, which disenchanted liberal voters. 

Sara Haines dismissed the flip from blue to red because this had been a trend after a presidential election for decades in Virginia. She also griped that Trump being banned off of social media may have helped Republican Glenn Youngkin: “The problem is, they say that might have helped, because without him not being right there, and people associating the Republican ticket with Trump, they  were able to stay discreet.”

But Sunny Hostin bitterly complained Trump was “very present” in the election. Completely removed from reality, she also claimed Democrats didn’t put enough effort into convincing voters that CRT wasn’t “real” (see how wrong she is on that here.)

SUNNY HOSTIN: I actually think it did stick. I actually think Trump was very present. I think he made a lot of phone calls for Youngkin and I think Youngkin was careful not to mention Trump by name but he was Trump all in and if you look at the exit polls, 57% actually of white women voted for Youngkin, much like 55% of white women voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton and what they said during the exit polls was that CRT was their most pressing issue. 

TAFOYA: 33% said the economy. 

SUNNY HOSTIN: Yeah but 55% is a lot more than 33%. 

TAFOYA: Of those women, but not of total voters.

HOSTIN: I think what’s interesting is that, you know, Democrats are not good with the messaging that CRT is fake. 

BEHAR: It doesn’t exist in the school system. It’s in law school. Only. 

Tafoya went on to argue with Whoopi Goldberg again over whether or not CRT-like material was being taught to kids in school. Despite actually having seen this firsthand with her own kids, Whoopi and Hostin again told Tafoya that CRT wasn’t taught in schools.

Goldberg insisted conservatives just wanted to hide the country’s history of racism: “You cannot put in a different name, you can’t pretend we didn’t go through this,” she sneered.

Hostin backed her up. “It was a racial reckoning,” she said, referring to the George Floyd riots and opposition to CRT. 

But Tafoya pointed out it was the left who wanted to erase history.

“No one is pretending [slavery didn’t happen],” she shot back. “In fact I think when we whitewash history by getting rid of certain names, statues and people and Laura Ingalls Wilder references then we forget,” she argued. ABC tried to cut her off by playing exit music. But Hostin still was given the space to repeat her nasty assertions a Republican won because of racism:

HOSTIN: I suspect that the 57% of white women that voted for Youngkin do want to pretend that it didn’t happen and they don’t want their white children —

TAFOYA: I wouldn’t suspect that of those women, that’s not true.

MICHELE TAFOYA:  …And I think it’s the economy, stupid. I think someone said that once. I didn’t coin that phrase. But  It is. 33% of voters coming out of those votes said economy was their number one choice. That was number one. Its the economy.

TAFOYA: Well they certainly tried. I mean Biden mentioned him like 25 times in a 10 minute speech and it still didn’t stick.

SUNNY HOSTIN: I actually think it did stick. I actually think Trump was very present. I think he made a lot of phone calls for Youngkin and I think Youngkin was careful not to mention Trump by name but he was Trump all in and if you look at the exit polls, 57% actually of white women voted for Youngkin, much like 55% of white women voted for Trump over Hillary Clinton and what they said during the exit polls was that CRT was their most pressing issue. 

TAFOYA: 33% said the economy. 

SUNNY HOSTIN: Yeah but 55% is a lot more than 33%. 

TAFOYA: Of those women, but not of total voters.

HOSTIN: I think what’s interesting is that, you know, Democrats are not good with the messaging that CRT is fake. 

BEHAR: It doesn’t exist in the school system. It’s in law school. Only. 

WHOOPI GOLDBERG: Listen, if people want to know what’s being taught in your school, go over to the school, get an idea of the curriculum because they’ll give it to you. They will show you anything you want to know. 

MICHELE TAFOYA: and Whoopi, also people were watching their kids online throughout the pandemic. They heard a lot of this and recorded a lot of this. It may not exactly what CRT is, but there was a lot of racialized teaching — I’m not talking about teaching slavery, here. That’s fine, that’s all good. 

GOLDBERG: You remember what happened during the pandemic. I think George Floyd happened during the pandemic. 

TAFOYA: In my hometown. 

GOLDBERG: And that’s why people were talking about — 

HOSTIN: It was a racial reckoning. 

GOLDBERG: Race. There was a whole bunch of stuff going on. 

MICHELE TAFOYA: I hate to break it to you, with two young kids in school but it’s been going on before, long before George Floyd. 

GOLDBERG: I will tell you this, I hate to break it to you, that most schools that I am aware of have tried to teach the history of how this country has — 

TAFOYA: Absolutely. And it should. Good, bad and ugly, they should.

GOLDBERG: You cannot put in a different name, you can’t pretend we didn’t go through this. So during the pandemic–

TAFOYA” No one is pretending that though. No one is pretending. No one is pretending. My second grade report was on slavery and the abolition of slavery, I mean, it’s being taught to my kids. No one is pretending it didn’t happen. 

[ABC plays exit music]

TAFOYA: In fact I think when we whitewash history by getting rid of certain names, and statues and people and Laura Ingalls Wilder references then we forget. We need to learn 

HOSTIN: I suspect that the 57% of white women that voted for Youngkin do want to pretend that it didn’t happen and they don’t want their white children —

TAFOYA: I wouldn’t suspect that of those women, that’s not true.
