Oh no, get the popcorn! One guest dared to challenge ‘The View’ hosts on CRT and Covid safety in schools

The ladies of “The View” butted heads with their guest-cohost, Lindsey Granger, Tuesday after Whoopi Goldberg attempted to redirect the blame from failing progressive agendas and misplaced priorities like “changing the names of schools.”

Using an opinion piece out of the New York Times as her foundation, Goldberg offered the highlights on how Republicans have capitalized on the issues of Critical Race Theory (CRT), mask mandates and parental choice and that Democrats need to take the focus off of education as the only path to success. Conceding that those were great points, Goldberg proceeded to then push the principles behind CRT.

“As a child, a black child, I learned that there was a part of my history as an American child that was not there,” Goldberg recounted before haphazardly adding that trade schools were an alternative since not everyone needs to go to college.

She pressed on the issue of race, stating, “Any time somebody says you shouldn’t be talking about this, I want to know why not. Why shouldn’t people be aware there’s something out there that may or may not relate to race? …I want to know what it so I can decide for myself whether I want to talk about.”

Co-host Joy Behar briefly interjected to try offer her view that Republicans were the party against education, before Granger stepped up to argue that the right has taken over the narrative on the subject.

Stating how Democrats were “being more concerned about changing the names of schools versus getting kids back in schools,” Granger pointed out how ideology had supplanted purpose. Republicans saw the failing and listened to the demands of parents to see to the needs of children.

Behar tried to take a moral high ground and suggest that there was a hierarchy of import and a choice had to be made; health or education. Granger disputed that claim and said they are equally important before reminding that Democrats were responsible for keeping the schools closed.

Goldberg took umbrage with that fact and blamed the virus, “No, that’s not true! What kept them out of school was Omicron and COVID. That’s what kept people out of school. That’s what kept us from going to work.”

Undeterred, Granger reminded that the matter was up to the states to decide and she and Goldberg both claimed victory on that point. The irony there is that in so doing, Goldberg acknowledged that Democrat run states had a different response to the virus than Republican led states where students returned to school sooner.

“In the states where it was decided kids would not go back to school, they were failing miserably,” Granger stated as Goldberg continued to blame COVID. She went on to point out the pivot away from that position after President Joe Biden suggested it was time to move on in the State of the Union.

Co-host Sunny Hostin then jumped in to tout a favored talking point, “the science has changed,” before returning to the issue of CRT that she claimed was only in law schools despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Hostin then managed to get Goldberg to contradict her initial argument against everyone going to college by coupling trade schools and universities together as the “great equalizers.”

“It was the great equalizer for me and that’s why, historically, white people didn’t want black people to have an education cause we wouldn’t have Ketanji Brown Jackson without education,” Hostin said, which in itself disproves the argument.
