The women on ABC’s The View spend most of their episodes whining about things they don’t like.

Even though the show tries to present itself as a balanced panel, the hosts frequently engage in cultural controversy.

Now Whoopi Goldberg is making waves after she called for a Justice Department investigation into Tucker Carlson.

Whoopi Goldberg says Tucker Carlson’s revelations are possibly illegal

Tucker Carlson has been ruffling a lot of feathers this week after releasing a trove of never before seen video footage from the Capitol on January 6. Carlson is challenging the narrative that the incident was a violent insurrection and instead presents it as a peaceful tour of the Capitol.

Since some of the footage released by Carlson supports his angle, it is making a lot of Left-leaning media pundits very angry. Movie star and host of ABC’s The View, Whoopi Goldberg, says that what Carlson did was not only un-American, but it was dangerous and possibly illegal.

Goldberg’s co-hosts also went after Carlson with a vengeance and decided to play the “terrorist” card.

Carlson may be responsible for “recruiting domestic terrorists”

“I have a question. How come this is not thought of as being recruiting? How come they’re not thinking about this as radicalizing?” Goldberg asked the other ladies on the show. Her co-host Sunny Hostin chimed in to finish her thought by asking if Goldberg meant “recruiting domestic terrorists?”

Goldberg ranted about how there was not enough public interest and said that she did not understand why this was not more heavily “scrutinized.” She said what Carlson was doing “should be against the law” and claimed that he “knowingly” lied to the American people.

Seemingly aware that she had lied to the American people before, Goldberg went on to say “it’s one thing if you made a mistake and you didn’t know.” This, however, was totally different in Goldberg’s eyes. 

Goldberg tries to invoke the term “fake news”

Then she went on to embrace the world of “fake news” skeptics who have lost all confidence in the media. She complained that all “we heard for five or six years now, you know, the media was a lying sack of doo.” 

Goldberg said—wrongfully—that the First Amendment does not protect Carlson or Fox News in this situation because he was lying “willingly.” She went on to wonder how the American people were supposed to “say this is not okay.”

The problem with this logic is that there are many people who have been saying for a very long time that January 6 was a mixture of violence and stupidity. No one argues that there was no violence that day, but many of the people who have been charged were simply charged with trespassing.

Meanwhile, most corporate-controlled media outlets have referred to them all as terrorists.

Co-hosts explore the need for DOJ intervention

Hostin doubled down on the accusation that Carlson was recruiting domestic terrorists. She cited FBI Director Christopher Wray’s claim that “the number one threat to our country, to the survival of our democracy, is domestic terrorists.”

She then asked “how do you recruit domestic terrorists?” before quickly answering her own question with “misinformation.”

Goldberg added that emails from the Dominion Voting Systems lawsuit against Fox News proved that Carlson was aware he was lying. “You knew and know people are still listening to you and you’re still lying,” she said.

She then said she hopes that “the DOJ looks through a whole bunch of stuff and figures out what to do about this.” 

Apparently everyone on the Left wants to see a country where the press is controlled by the Department of Justice.
