Hostin LASHES OUT at School Choice Despite Her Kids’ Private Education

News & Politics

After launching into a racist attack against former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley for her skin color one year ago this month, racist ABC co-host Sunny Hostin used Thursday’s edition of The View to attack Haley’s support for school choice. She lashed out at the concept of parents having the right to pick where their child got their education, that’s despite bragging about exclusively attending private schools herself and sending her kids to them as well.

During their opening segment where the cast clutched their pearls over a new CNN poll that found President Biden’s approval rating was 39 percent, Hostin tried to write off Haley’s life’s work, which was arguably more impressive than Hostin’s. “Everybody thinks Nikki Haley is this, you know, this –this really interesting woman who is really powerful and has these really great ideas. Well, let me tell you, I think she’s a hypocrite,” she scoffed.

“She’s a champion of parents’ rights,” Hostin condemned her. “We know what that means when it comes to Florida and when it comes to Texas. It really means that you’re giving the right to certain parents to teach their kids what they want their kids taught, but you’re taking away from me as a parent what I want my kids to learn.”

After smearing parental rights group Moms for Liberty, Hostin got into an argument with faux conservative Alyssa Farah Griffin over a parent’s right to send their kids to anything other than public school, calling the right to make the choice “a problem.”

Farah Griffin responded by calling out Hostin for attending private school herself. Hostin bragged about it and about sending her kids to private school:

HOSTIN: Do you know why that’s a problem? Because what you do is you take money away from the public schools and you give them —

FARAH GRIFFIN: Didn’t you go to private school?

HOSTIN: Oh, I went to private school! I had the privilege of going to private school!

FARAH GRIFFIN: So then why shouldn’t all students get that?

HOSTIN: My children had the privilege of private school, but why should my children have been able to go to a public school that was just as good as the private school that I spent all that money on?!

Who’s the real hypocrite?

Hostin also bloviated about how she wants her “kids to learn about their history” and about “the history of this country regardless of whether or not it makes you feel uncomfortable…”

But later in the show, she exposed that the kind of history she wanted kids taught was the revisionist kind; the kind that falsely suggested Republicans didn’t end slavery and falsely painted them as the ones behind Jim Crow laws:

ANA NAVARRO: The Republican party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln eradicated slavery–

HOSTIN: Well, it changed a little bit. (…) I can’t let Republicans hide behind the party of Abraham Lincoln. Okay? Because the Republican Party hasn’t been the party of Abraham Lincoln since Jim Crow, since the Reconstruction, since forever.

She even had the nerve to proclaim “Let’s not twist history around.”

The View’s hypocrisy on school choice for them and not average Americans was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Charmin and General Mills. Their contact information is linked.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Now I want to get to my Nikki Haley card. Everybody thinks Nikki Haley is this, you know, this –this really interesting woman who is really powerful and has these really great ideas. Well, let me tell you, I think she’s a hypocrite. My personal opinion.

JOY BEHAR: Well, yeah. Duh.

HSOTIN: She’s championed – She’s a champion of parents’ rights. We know what that means when it comes to Florida and when it comes to Texas. It really means that you’re giving the right to certain parents to teach their kids what they want their kids taught, but you’re taking away from me as a parent what I want my kids to learn.

[Applause]

I want my kids to learn about their history. And I think all kids should learn about the history of this country regardless of whether or not it makes you feel uncomfortable because past will become prologue if you don’t know your history.

Now, what she’s also doing is meeting with Moms for Liberty.

BEHAR: Oh, not that group.

HOSTIN: Moms for Liberty has been found by the Southern Poverty Law Center as an extremist organization, because of what they’re doing with parental rights, anti-LGBTQ education, anti-African American education.

BEHAR: So, liberty only applies to them.

HOSTIN: Yes, liberty only applies to them. It is an extremist group. And I have to tell you. And it is proliferating! It is all over the place! It started out with a couple of moms in Florida. And now it’s in almost all states!

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: I actually — I agree, Moms for Liberty, I think speaks to something culturally –

HOSTIN: Daughters of the Revolution!

FARAH GRIFFIN: — but they’ve gone a bit of a dangerous direction. But I actually think Nikki Haley in talking about parental choice and education and freedom of education; this is one of the biggest issues.

Our kids lost a year of education during COVID. We have done nothing to get them up to speed. I hear this talking to people more than basically anything. We’re falling behind global standards. She’s promoting education freedom, choice in school, finding what’s best for your student. I think that that’s hugely important.

HOSTIN: Do you know what a problem–

FARAH GRIFFIN: One of the most –

HOSTIN: Do you know why that’s a problem? Because what you do is you take money away from the public schools and you give them —

FARAH GRIFFIN: Didn’t you go to private school?

HOSTIN: Oh, I went to private school! I had the privilege of going to private school!

FARAH GRIFFIN: So then why shouldn’t all students get that?

HOSTIN: My children had the privilege of private school, but why should my children have been able to go to a public school that was just as good as the private school that I spent all that money on?!

[Crosstalk]

BEHAR: We have to go.

ANA NAVARRO: The Republican party is the party of Abraham Lincoln. Abraham Lincoln eradicated slavery–

HOSTIN: Well, it changed a little bit.

NAVARRO: There are states – Let me finish this. There are states in America right now, including my state of Florida where they are trying to find a positive point of view on slavery and whitewashing black history. That is not a conservative value. Trying to take aid away from Ukraine and abandon Ukraine that is not a traditional conservative value.

HOSTIN: I can’t let Republicans hide behind the party of Abraham Lincoln. Okay? Because the Republican Party hasn’t been the party of Abraham Lincoln since Jim Crow, since the Reconstruction, since forever. So, let’s not twist history around.
