‘The View’ Hosts Lose It Over Pledge Of Allegiance: It ‘Doesn’t Apply To A Lot Of Our Citizens’

Whoopi Goldberg and Sunny Hostin lashed out at Congressman Matt Gaetz (R-FL) on Thursday for calling on the House Judiciary Committee to make the Pledge of Allegiance a part of its proceedings.

During the latest broadcast of the ABC midday talk show “The View,” Goldberg argued that it would be “more patriotic” to address issues like “police violence” — and Hostin claimed that the pledge itself did not even “apply to a lot of our citizens.”


Whoopi then lashes out at Fox News.
She claims “they don’t do their work” because they report on The View’s nonsense. “They come at us for doing what we’re supposed to do which is give you our opinion,” she whined, defending her “anti-American” stances. pic.twitter.com/fHAhglxugx

Goldberg weighed in first, saying, “This is the Judiciary Committee, right, so wouldn’t it be a better show of patriotism to be working on issues like police violence, mass shootings, prison reform?”

“You know, people, I don’t know what it’s gonna take for them to recognize that people don’t — they’re not — we’re not fooling around, and people in the United States are not fooling around,” Goldberg continued. “You wasted everybody’s time suggesting your people do what they already do. What is this waste of time?”

She went on to preemptively attack Fox News, claiming that instead of “doing their job,” they would probably attack her for doing hers: giving her opinion. She argued that is what is great about America — the fact that each person could still freely give an opinion and it didn’t matter whether anyone else liked it.

Hostin jumped in next, claiming that her problem with the whole situation was the “hypocrisy” of it all – and then cited an African American history course she took in college that disabused her of the belief in “American exceptionalism.”

Claiming that the Pledge of Allegiance “doesn’t apply to a lot of our citizens,” Hostin complained that America also “hasn’t met the dream of being exceptional. It hasn’t meant this dream of being a beacon on the hill.”

Hostin went on to note that the Supreme Court had ruled that people could not be forced to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, but said that wasn’t enough for her. Instead, she argued that schools should stop teaching the idea of American exceptionalism until the country had “met the promise” of what it could be.

Goldberg jumped back in then, complaining that America was supposed to be a place where people could “call out” the “isms” instead of allowing things like racism to persist — and claiming that people were becoming less free to do that.
