The Views Claims Traffickers Don’t Rape Migrant Women Inside the U.S.

News & Politics

After initially maligning Alabama Republican Senator Katie Britt for her less-than-stellar and unusual rebuttal to President Biden’s State of the Union address on Friday, the vicious liberals of ABC’s The View were back to attacking her on Monday. They decried Britt’s focus on Democratic Party open-border policies and her calling out how it led to migrant women getting raped along the journey. And despite the fact that The View chose to talk about Britt again, moderator Whoopi Goldberg hypocritically whined that it kept them from talking about the real violence in Haiti and Africa.

The View’s biggest problem with Britt’s focus on migrant rapes, and where they tried to put the most distance between Democratic open-border policies and their consequences, was that they supposedly only happened outside the United States, which somehow made them not as big of an issue as they otherwise should be.

“Just in that interview [Britt] said, ‘I’m talking about real things that happen with women in the cartels in Mexico,’ but your speech is about here and President Biden, like, what?” co-host Sara Haines scoffed.

As part of her self-inflicted wound, Britt did cite a rape incident that happened under President George W. Bush, but faux-conservative co-host Ana Navarro also echoed Haines’s suggestion that a migrant being raped on their journey to the border didn’t count as a consequence of open-border policies.

“And she was trying to blame Joe Biden for something that happened 20 years under George W. Bush, in a different country. So, the level of misleading that this lady did, you know, just has — and she’s shameless about it,” Navarro huffed.

The woman in question, Carla Jacinto “testified in front of Congress about this” (as noted by Navarro) and the other faux-conservative, Alyssa Farah Griffin whined that Britt “didn’t have permission to” tell the story.

Farah Griffin admitted that “there is a very real problem of women being sexually assaulted during journey of coming across the U.S. border,” but The View obviously didn’t want to talk about it and preferred to bash the Republican instead. “But that was not the story she told!” Goldberg shouted. “Exactly. So, it undermines the actual suffering of women that happens as part of this dysfunctional border process and it undermined the efforts,” Farah Griffin agreed.

“What this lady [Britt] did was she tried to push a narrative that was not so,” Goldberg continued to shout. “What you did was you tried to piss people off about something that was not happening here!”

The likes of Goldberg, Haines, and Navarro would have viewers believe that the rapes of migrant women were “not happening here” in the U.S., but the fact was they were. According to a Daily Mail report, “rape trees” (covered in women’s undergarments) were not an uncommon sight along on the American side of the border. “The trees have been spotted up and down the border. Academics talk of them as warnings or trophies in the brutal symbolism of violent gangs,” the paper noted.

The View deliberately chose to talk again about Britt’s four-day-old speech, but that didn’t stop Goldberg from hypocritically whining that it kept them from talking about other important stuff. “[W]e could be talking about what’s going on in Haiti. We could be talking about what’s going on in Africa,”{ she whined.

ALYSSA FARAH GRIFFIN: Here’s what stood out to me in this: This will go down as one of the worst State of the Union responses in history.

SUNNY HOSTIN: Yeah.

FARAH GRIFFIN: The worst part to me was not the silly, performative nature it was the story. She didn’t talk to the victim of it. So, the victim learned through media reports that her story was told, and there is a very real problem of women being sexually assaulted during journey of coming across the U.S. border. CBS: Migrants are being raped at Mexico’s border as they await entry; New York Times: Hidden nightmare of sexual violence at the border –

WHOOPI GOLDBERG [Interrupting]: But that was not the story she told!

FARAH GRIFFIN: Exactly. So, it undermines the actual suffering of women that happens as part of this dysfunctional border process and it undermined the efforts. And by the way, terrible staff work. No one even fact checked it?

SARA HAINES: Yeah, but she said “I was – Just in that interview she said, “I’m talking about real things that happen with women in the cartels in Mexico,” but your speech is about here and President Biden, like, what?

FARAH GRIFFIN: And she framed it as the U.S. where it was happening.

HOSTIN: She did frame it. She did frame it.

ANA NAVARRO: And she was trying to blame Joe Biden for something that happened 20 years under George W. Bush, in a different country. So, the level of misleading that this lady did, you know, just has — and she’s shameless about it. The part that’s really bothersome is she gets caught and she’s, like, [puts on a raspy voice] “a woman. I spoke to a woman. A woman.”

HAINES: But she didn’t even speak to her, is the thing.

FARAH GRIFFIN: Well, she didn’t say she was going to share her story and she didn’t have permission to.

NAVARRO: I think that when she went down to the border – the woman – her name – and the woman’s name is Carla Jacinto, and she testified in front of Congress about this.

HOSTIN: She did.

GOLDBERG: The information is out there. That was not —

HOSTIN: She didn’t seem like that. She made it seem like it was one on one.

[Crosstalk]

GOLDBERG: What this lady did was she tried to push a narrative that was not so.

HOSTIN: Yeah.

GOLDBERG: It just wasn’t true, and if you are going to win and you want to grab people, at least tell them the truth so they have a reason to be angry. What you did was you tried to piss people off about something that was not happening here!

And if you are going to do that, you know, we could be talking about what’s going on in Haiti. We could be talking about what’s going on in Africa. If you really want to upset people and tell them what’s going on in those countries, but unless you’re going to do that, stick to the truth because it’s too easy to check.
