Joy Behar wishes to see Romney's house burn down

. . . but she's joking. Only leftists are allowed to tell jokes.

thy news is busted

Joy Behar Wants to See Romney's House Burn Down: 'It Would Be Kind of Cool — the Mormon Fire Patrol'

By Noel Sheppard | June 12, 2012 | 20:25
Joy Behar, Al Gore's new employee at Current TV, said Tuesday in response to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's comments on the need for more police, teachers, and firefighters, "I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down."

During an interview with the liberal website Mediaite, Behar added, "It would be kind of cool — the Mormon fire patrol" (video follows with transcript and commentary, relevant section begins at minute 6:30):

MEDIAITE: What would you ask Romney if you could?

JOY BEHAR: I would ask him plenty of questions about, is he planning to endorse the Ryan budget? And I think that would be a terrible mistake. I don’t want to see people on the streets begging for food, thank you. And why does he hate Planned Parenthood? You know, he didn’t used to hate Planned Parenthood. I want to ask him about all the flip-flopping he’s been doing. That’s why he doesn’t want to come on, because he’s afraid of the questions.

MEDIAITE: I saw that you used to be a school teacher. What did you think about what he said about “teachers, firemen, and police?”

BEHAR: What did he say? Tell me what he said.

MEDIAITE: He was making fun of the President for wanting to hire more policemen and firemen and teachers saying, you know, “Didn’t he get the message of Wisconsin that we want less government?”

BEHAR: Oh, less government? That is an idiotic statement. Can I just say that?

MEDIAITE: Yes.

BEHAR: I mean, I’d like to see his house burn, one of his millions of houses burning down. It would be kind of cool — the Mormon fire patrol.

MEDIAITE: Is that a thing?

BEHAR: You know what I mean? Come on. What am I supposed to do if my apartment gets caught on fire? Am I gonna call Mitt Romney to come and put it out? See what I mean?
Obviously, this was a joke.

However, imagine for a moment a conservative commentator making such a remark about President Obama or any leading Democrat.

As Donald Trump said Monday evening regarding Bill Maher's attacks on Romney's religion, "End of that person's career."

By contrast, it seems quite doubtful Behar will suffer any consequences for saying even jokingly she'd like to see the Republican presidential candidate's house burn down.

You see, if you're a member of today's media, it's totally acceptable to say whatever you want about a conservative — especially if he or she is running for president or vice president. Then all decency restrictions are totally off.

Just ask Sarah Palin and her family.

Yup. Another example of why terrorists won't attack New York again. The enemies of America are firmly entrenched in NYC.

Yep. Nice to see the far leftist 'double-standard' is still alive and well. As far as I'm concerned, Joy Behar still continues to be irrelevant. She's nothing more than another Jane Fonda clone.

She's comfortable with the format she had on HLN. This is the same format that gave her such low ratings on HLN that they cancelled her show while retaining such highly rated shows as Dr. Drew and Nancy Grace. She should do well on Al Gore's network she should get 100% of the audience. Both she and gore will watch the show. or maybe not.

I don't know if she's relevant but when Bob Grant said that he feared one of Clinton's cabinet had survived a plane crash, he was excoriated by the left and fired by WABC. If fame and relevance is going to be the standard that we use for whether someone is held accountable, then I have a few wishes of my own.

The last straw for Disney/ABC was Grant's comment after Commerce Secretary Ron Brown's plane went down in Bosnia (4/3/96): "My hunch is [Brown] is the one survivor. I just have that hunch. Maybe it's because at heart I'm a pessimist."

He made the mistake of overestimating his popularity translating to "untouchability". I think Joy Behar's comments are equally offensive but her employer has far lower standards.

Of course. If someone actually did torch Romney's home after Behar's call to arms, The "Sarah Palin Target Rule" would not apply.

Why does anyone care about what Joy Behar, a TV and radio talking head and solid-gold yenta, thinks about politics?

I have never understood this. Are we so celebrity-whipped in this country that we care about what airheads like her think? Is her opinion automatically validated because she's on TV? Joy Behar has as much business offering political opinions as she does advising Joe Girardi who to bat cleanup in the lineup every night.
