Retrospective: my favorite Joy Behar lie

Joy Behar's show is going away at the end of the year on HLN.

 

---Your first question is probably--"who is Joy Behar?"  A: She, I think, was a comedian or something at one point, and she's also the craziest member of the View.

---Your second question is probably: "She had a show on HLN?"  A: Yes.

---Your 3rd question is probably: "How the hell did her show last this long?"  A: You can chalk that up to the fact that they had a great staff that was actually able to take her invisible talents and turn it into something that actually lasted for a couple of years.  A lot of them used to work with us when we were at HLN, and they were great.

Joy, however, is just not that bright.  And she lies a lot.  But, that's been documented a million times.  My favorite has to be her appearance on Leno a while back.  First, her justification for talking about Glenn on Leno:

JOY BEHAR: But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it.

Hmmmm...I went back and checked to see if Glenn had ever mentioned Joy Behar on his Fox News show before this interview happened.  I couldn't find one mention.  Not one.  Maybe there was one somewhere, but couldn't find it.  What she was referring to was a list of people bashing Glenn that one of our producers put together, of which Joy occupied about three seconds.  It might surprise some, but Glenn isn't actually sitting in the edit room picking each individual clip of Glenn-bashers that airs on his show.   Regardless, here's how the conversation ended up:

JAY LENO: I heard Glenn Beck was talking about you on his show.

JOY BEHAR: Oh, yeah, Glenn Beck. ... (awful joke)...But um, he does, he talks about me. I'm on his list of 'I hate Glenn Beck.' It's like being on Nixon's enemies list. I loved it. But, I mean, I don't hate him. I don't hate him...I don't hate him and I want him to know that. Where is it?

LENO: Right there.

BEHAR: Over here? OK. Glenn, listen, I don't hate you. Sincerely, Glenn Beck, from the bottom of my heart, I don't hate you. I don't give a flying f--- about you.

You can still see the video here, if you wish.

Back when I heard that clip, I thought is was the most ridiculous thing I'd ever heard.  She seemed to me to be completely obsessed with Glenn.  I can't say I watched the show every night, or ever, but there did seem to be a decent amount of clips on the internet of her bashing Glenn.  Why would that be, if she didn't give a "flying f---" about him?

 

So, I off-handedly tasked an intern to see if she really was obsessing as much as I thought.  Alas, I was mistaken.  Joy really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn.  Which is why she only talked about him on a couple of shows, 9-27-09 and 9-30-09.

 

Well, and the shows on 10-7, 10-13, and 10-14-09.

 

And 10-21, 10-22, 11-11, 11-17, 11-18, 11-23, 11-25, 11-30, 12-1, and 12-23-09 .

 

Oh, and of course she showed her complete indifference to Glenn on 1-21, 1-25, 2-4, 2-23, 3-10, 3-11, 3-22, 3-25, 4-6, 4-13, 4-19, 4-21, 4-29, 4-30, 5-6, 5-10, 6-1, 6-7, 6-28, 6-29, 7-6, 7-21, 7-26, 7-28, 8-2, 9-3, 9-10, 9-13, 9-22, 9-27, 9-29, 10-4, 10-14, 10-16, 10-18, 11-1, 11-5, and 11-11-10.

 

It was at this point, I told our intern to stop bothering.  You get the point.  Glenn Beck should have received a restraining order against Joy Behar she talked about him so much.

If Joy Behar really didn't give a "flying f---" about Glenn, creepily obsessing about him on every other episode is a really strange way of showing it.

 

Apparel company The North Face recently stated that it would no longer make jackets for oil and gas companies because it doesn't want to be associated with the fossil fuel industry. In response, Colorado-based oil and gas company Liberty Oilfield Services rented full billboard ads to remind The North Face of the truth: "Globally, 60% of all clothing fibers are made out of oil and gas. For North Face, it is likely 90% or more."

Liberty CEO Chris Wright joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss just how much of our economy — beyond outdoor apparel and energy — wouldn't exist in a world without fossil fuels. And he warns that many companies are now deeming this truth to be "controversial."

"I have been for years, trying to get a real, honest dialogue about energy going," Chris told Glenn. "So we took this opportunity to point out that North Face jackets are ... almost completely made out of oil and gas. How can you choose not to associate with the essential material your equipment [is] made out of? So we put a billboard up ... the billboard says, 'That North Face puffer looks good on you. And it was made from fossil fuels.'"

"Most billboard companies did not want to run that billboard. They thought it was controversial," he added. "And Facebook put a hold on our brief video just saying the jacket looks good, this is what it's made out of. In today's world, that is controversial."

During a lecture at the Yale School of Medicine's Child Study Center, a New York City-based psychiatrist told students and faculty that she fantasizes about "unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way," among several other shockingly race-hating statements.

In April, Dr. Aruna Khilanani — a New York-based forensic psychiatrist and psychoanalyst — delivered the talk called "The Psychopathic Problem of the White Mind" virtually as part of the Yale School of Medicine's "Child Study Center Grand Rounds," a lecture program for "trainees in child psychiatry, psychology, and social work, faculty, clinicians, and scientists."

On the radio program Monday, Glenn Beck shared several quotes from an audio recording of the lecture provided by Bari Weiss, a former opinion writer and editor for the New York Times.

Here are a few of Khilanani's statements from the audio:

  • "This is the cost of talking to white people at all. The cost of your own life, as they suck you dry. There are no good apples out there. White people make my blood boil."
  • "I had fantasies of unloading a revolver into the head of any white person that got in my way, burying their body, and wiping my bloody hands as I walked away relatively guiltless with a bounce in my step. Like I did the world a f***ing favor."
  • "White people are out of their minds. And they have been for a long time."
  • "White people feel that we are bullying them when we bring up race. They feel that we should be thanking them for all that they have done for us. They are confused, and so are we. We keep forgetting that directly talking about race is a waste of our breath."
  • "We are asking a demented, violent predator who thinks that they are a saint or a superhero, to accept responsibility. It ain't gonna happen. They have five holes in their brain. It's like banging your head against a brick wall. It's just like sort of not a good idea."

"We must take a stand. We must speak out, because this is evil," Glenn said in response to Khilanani's shocking lecture. "I don't care who you voted for, you know this is evil."

The prices of our houses and food are already rising fast, but they will skyrocket to record highs if we don't fix the problem soon. So what's causing the inflation?

On the radio program this week, Glenn Beck said he doesn't believe it's the fault of our loggers, farmers, or truckers — many of them are really struggling. But the big corporations that control these industries are making record profits, all while the Biden administration is making some very odd decisions that could make the crises even worse.

The crisis at the border continues to worsen, with the U.S. Border Patrol recently releasing some shocking statistics that illuminate just how bad the situation has become. But Texas Governor Greg Abbott (R) is doing everything he can to prevent any additional unlawful crossings into the Lone Star State.

Abbott joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to describe recent action he has taken to ensure that those who do cross into Texas illegally know they came to the "wrong state."

After noting that both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris "have completely abandoned post as it concerns the Texas border," Abbott explained how "Texas is stepping up" to combat the flood of dangerous gangs and cartels, human traffickers and drugs he says are pouring into border communities.

"Beginning in March, I deployed a thousand Texas Department of Public Safety officers to the border. I deployed the National Guard to the border. And they made well over a thousand arrests of some of these criminals we talked about. They've apprehended more than 33,000 illegal immigrants coming across the border." Abbott said. "But because of the way the Biden administration has abandoned the border, we are now elevating our game. What I did yesterday, in response to more than a dozen counties along the border ... I granted their request for a disaster declaration," he added.

Abbott went on to describe how his disaster declaration gives Texas the authority to toughen penalties for lawbreakers, including criminal trespassing, smuggling, and human trafficking.

"We're going to begin arresting everybody coming across the border and charging them with criminal trespass and putting them in jail. They are coming in here, thinking they'll get the Biden free-ride, and go wherever they want to go. Not in the state of Texas. We'll start arresting them right and left, and putting them behind bars, and saying they came in to the wrong state."

Asked by Glenn if he is prepared for the inevitable "media onslaught", Abbott simply answered, "We're prepared to see a reduction in the number of people coming across the border — because Texas is enforcing the law, period."
