‘The View’ Suggests Cuba, U.S. Have Same Human Rights Records
'The View' Suggests Cuba, U.S. Have Same Human Rights Records (NewsBusters)
It’s often disheartening to hear some of the despicable things the audience of ABC’s The View will applaud for.
Whoopi Goldberg and her compatriots talked about Cuban relations on Monday and parroted loony moral equivocations between human rights in America and Cuba made by Cuban officials. The audience, eager to shower their undying loyalty, erupted in applause as Whoopi repeated the Communist regime's talking points:
“Well on Friday the White House also announced that they are reversing the Obama administration's steps to normalize relations with Cuba because of their (laughing) human rights violations. Forget about the fact he has shaken the hands of some of the biggest despots out there. We won't point that out because that would be wrong of me. And because of their ties to hostile nations like North Korea. But Cuban officials said ‘really?’ Because the U.S. is in no condition to lecture us about human rights given the racial discrimination happening in America now.” (applause)
