‘The View’ kicks off Pride Month by suggesting Republicans want to execute, imprison gay people like Uganda

Pride Month is officially here again and the ladies on “The View” kicked off the thirty-day national celebration of gayness by grossly exaggerating recent pushback against the corporate-led cultural saturation of the LGBTQ+ lifestyle, particularly when it comes to the sexualizing of children, by likening it to Uganda and outlandishly suggesting that Republicans want to see gays executed, or at the very least, thrown into prison.

On Thursday’s edition of the popular ABC daytime gabfest where the set was colorfully decorated like a bowl of Froot Loops, the co-hosts dismissed the idea that there are people who could be justifiably outraged over groomers in classrooms, drag queens shaking their stuff in front of impressionable young kids, graphic homosexual smut in school libraries, genital mutilation surgery on underaged kids and the corporate world’s 24/7 propaganda that waterboards heterosexuals with transgenderism.

Seizing on the African nation’s new Anti-Homosexuality Act, ringleader Joy Behar spouted her crazed conspiracy theory by falsely claiming that many Americans would be down with the imposing of similar measures on the homefront, not getting any pushback from co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin, the show’s toothless conservative punching bag who has been little more than a leftist lapdog since she came on board last year.

“I think they’re using it as a political cudgel,” the foghorn-voiced redhead brayed. “So, you vilify one group of people, it unifies all these other people.”

“Let me point out that Uganda, for example. There are countries all over the world that are attacking gay people. This is the new scapegoat du jour right now. In Russia, you’re imprisoned if you’re gay,” she continued. “In Uganda, they just imposed a stringent law, life imprisonment or execution if you’re considered to be homosexual, 64 countries, half of them are in Africa, criminalize homosexuality. The other half are all over the place. I mean, is that what we want our country to be, like Uganda? I mean come on! Or Russia? I don’t think so.”

Some of the stricter measures of the Ugandan law include the death penalty for “aggravated homosexuality” which applies to pedophiles who have sex acts with children which would include child rapists, same-sex acts with disabled individuals, and the passing on of a terminal illness like AIDS through the act of homosexual sex. Also included in the law are tough penalties for grooming and the promotion of homosexuality that stop short of execution, but Behar left out that bit of relevant context.

“The answer is no,” Griffin said. “And those on the right who are targeting the LGBTQ+ community are on the wrong side of history, the facts bear that out. So, 8 in 10 Americans favor more laws to protect the LGBTQ+ community from discrimination. 67 percent of those are Republicans. The biggest voting bloc in 2024 will be Millennials and Gen Z-ers. We are the generation of marriage equality, we are the generation of freedom. We are not going backward on these issues.”

“To anyone in my party, it is not where the majority of the country is and it is such an egregious misreading,” she added.

Behar shot back, “Yeah, but your party tends to steal elections!”

“Well, they tried but they didn’t though,” Griffin fecklessly said, not even pretending to contest the blatant lie.

“But it has worked in the past and it’s worked over and over and over again,” co-host Sunny Hostin jumped in. “And I will tell you that I completely agree, this is a cudgel, a political cudgel, this is just being used as a culture war. Only 1.6 percent of American adults are now transgender or non-binary. 1.6 percent. Then why do you choose that group to attack?!”

“And I go back to what LBJ said a long time ago. And I was trying to find it. He said, ‘If you can convince lowest white man he’s better than the best colored man, he won’t notice you’re picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on and he’ll empty his pockets for you,” she said of President Lyndon B. Johnson, a Democratic Party icon. “And that is what they are doing! They are attacking the LGBTQ+ community, because they have no real platform, they have no real programs, and are they out of step with this country, the only way that they win is by stealing the election or doing things like this! That is the truth!”

Griffin tried to explain that an overwhelming majority of Republicans support homosexuality and transgenderism, “The difference between politicians – Republican politicians and American voters, 70 percent of Republican voters support the LGBTQ+ community. They don’t want this either.”

Not able to resist taking a shot at a familiar boogeyman, co-host Whoopi Goldberg added, “Here’s the thing, if that indeed is true, y’all need to get out and tell your politicians to quit doing this, because – I feel like people are making decisions for us as a country. That guy down in Florida, he’s made decisions to create some sort of new country that only he’s in charge of. If you want to see this stopped, this is on us. We can stop this.”
