With Meghan McCain leaving The View, there is no longer any conservative voice.
So now the far-left co-hosts that remain are becoming more radical than ever.
And The View is trying to cancel the national anthem in a stunt that will infuriate you.
Recent years have seen a rapid rise in “anthem kneeling” protests, where far-left athletes refuse to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner at sports events.
It is their way of showing their disdain for the United States, which they believe is a racist country.
When the trend was started by former NFL player Colin Kaepernick, the reaction from sports leagues was widely negative.
He was made into a pariah by sports fans, being voted most disliked NFL player, and the year he began his disrespectful protest was unsurprisingly his last season in the NFL.
But outside of the sports world, he found a new fan base among the radical Left.
He became an overnight hero to them, being placed on magazine covers, given lucrative speaking gigs, and later even named as a brand ambassador by Nike.
And while Kaepernick hasn’t been on the field in years, over time he and his radical Left fanboys influence has grown to a point where anthem kneeling became the norm for many teams, with a number of them not even bothering to leave the locker room when the Star Spangled Banner played.
Unsurprisingly, the Left’s displays of disrespect have made it to the Olympic-level too.
U.S. Olympian Gwen Berry kneeled during the 2019 Pan American Games in Lima, Peru.
The Olympic Committee put her on probation for 12 months over that incident.
But she wasn’t done, and just days ago Berry turned her back to the American flag when the anthem played during the U.S. Olympic trials.
Co-hosts on The View praised her for this, calling it her “patriotic duty.”
“The other day, an Olympian called Gwen Berry caused some controversy at the U.S. Olympic trials when she turned her back while the national anthem was being played,” Whoopi Goldberg began the segment.
After playing a clip of Republican Rep. Dan Crenshaw criticizing Berry, Joy Behar fired back:
“Well, you know, protest is the very definition of patriotism. It basically is the basis of the country.”
She then cited the Boston Tea Party and Vietnam War protests, stating that “now African-Americans are protesting, you know, the fact that people do not want to face their racist past here.” Behar goes on to praise Berry: “…she’s basically doing her patriotic duty by saying, ‘I am making a point here.’ That’s all she’s doing. She’s not hurting anybody.”
Co-host Sara Haines agreed, asserting that “Gwen Barry is representing the country. She’s questioning an American anthem that maybe doesn’t represent all people in the country.”
Goldberg added on the Haines point, expressing her own her disgust for the anthem: “Well, one of the days – in the upcoming days, we’ll play you the American anthem and let you see what you think of it. Because there’s some stuff in there that makes it a little bit tough to take.”
Meghan McCain was the only one to chime in with disgust, pointing out that foreign adversaries like Russia are using videos of anthem kneelers as anti-American propaganda, concluding her opinion with a patriotic point:
“I will die on this hill that it is not appropriate or patriotic to go to a foreign country where you’re supposed to be representing America and act like it’s just about you. It’s not about you, it’s about all of us.”
With Meghan McCain announcing she is leaving The View, the far-left will truly dominate the conversation on the show.
While she is far more moderate than most Conservatives, she at least gave some contrast to the radical positions pushed by the other hosts.
