  1. Intersting Elizabeth H. can't even say "gay". I wanted to punch her in the throat every time she called me "they".

  2. Unbelievable. Honestly, Hasselbeck is so clearly devoid of any rational thought it's astounding. She obviously has never had to fight for ANY of her rights. Her constant missives on "activist judges" show that she has no clue that the purpose of having judges is to protect minorities from the tyranny of the majority as seen under constitutional law. No civil rights issue in the last 60 years, conferred by judges, would have withstood a popular vote. What she thinks is "activist" is just "working!" Plus, they never ever bitch when judges make equally activist rulings that they completely agree with, it's only on issue with which they disagree.

  3. As conservative commentator Joe Scarbourough once uttered in a moment of unusual honesty:

    "An 'activist' judge is one who disagrees with you"

  4. To Mrs. Hasselbeck
    "All, too, will bear in mind this sacred principle, that though the will of the majority is in all cases to prevail, that will to be rightful must be reasonable; that the minority possess their equal rights, which equal law must protect, and to violate would be oppression."

    - Thomas Jefferson, the third President of the United States, the principal author of the Declaration of Independence, and one of the most influential Founding Fathers

  5. Remember, The View's "Master" simply LOVES her.

    out for the man behind the shrill yammering and make-up...Bill Gedde is the devil.

  6. could it be that Hasslejerk positions herself contrary in order to keep her seat at that table.

  7. Elizabitch is such a braindead bimbo. She went straight from daddy's house, to the sorority house, to her husband's house. She's never wanted for ANYTHING! Entitled cunt.

  8. Hasselbeck is wrong in many ways, even in the case of the judges. The California Supreme Court is not made up of liberal, "activist" justices. The majority were appointed by Republican Governors. And the decision was written by Chief Justice Ronald George, a 66-year-old Republican who was appointed in 1991 by Republican Governor Pete Wilson.

    I disagree with virtually everything she says, but I wish the other women were better informed, so they could take her on when she makes up statements like these.

  9. Perhaps 10 people in the state of California voted YES mainly because they are strictly against "activist judges" regardless of the matter at hand. But come on, everyone else absolutely DID judge the people they were voting against. Hasselbeck is such a phony right-wing hack. All the left-wingers on THE VIEW (in order from most to least left (Whoopi, Joy and Babs) are thoughtful and speak their minds and say what they feel. (Sherri, I left out of it because she's just a bizarre robot who is left but right at once.)

  10. Please, e-mail The View and correct Elizabeth's misinformation about "activist judges"...

    http://abc.go.com/site/contactus.html

    Like you guys have noted, its a part of the Court's role to protect minorities and that is also part of the 14th Amendment of the Constitution (to protect minorities).

    So-called "activist" judges gave women and African Americans their equal rights and ended the ban on inter-racial marriages against the will of the majority of people.

    Civil Rights shouldn't be put to a popular vote anyways.

    Its up to us to correct the smears and misinformation. We can't wait for others to do it for us.

  11. Not only does Whoopi have my admiration and respect for joining us in marching last night, but I am in awe of her for being able to sit across the table from that hobgoblin on a daily basis and continue to address her with civility.

    She's a bigger man than I.

  12. for the first and probably only time in my life, I agree with Joe Scarbourough. The world must be coming to an end

    Posted by: jon92027 | Nov 13, 2008 5:46:24 PM


  13. Elisabeth constantly gets her facts wrong. The other day she said that a Swedish 'priest' was jailed because he did not perform a same sex marriage, which is totally wrong (Ake Green was arrested for hate speech in a case that was later dropped) and she said that prop 8 passed by 62% three times and has yet to be corrected.

    There are a ton of gay people that work behind the scenes at The View. You'd think a few would stage a massive walkout in protest of Elisabeth's constant lies.

  14. Damn! I sure miss Rosie!

  15. Why is Elizabeth so IGNORANT as to ignore the fact that this year the CALIFORNIAN LEGISLATURE actually did pass a bill allowing gay marriage...it only died because of Arnold's VETO power...twice.

    So activist judges are to blame? What about the very people Californians elected to represent them? No, they have no clue what the Californian people want, right?

  16. Not surprisingly, Elizabeth just doesn't get it. Voting to strip away someone's rights IS a judgment. Not only is it a judgment, it's a judgment that has real consequences on real gay lives. Then she complains after Whoopi reads a few of the signs that we're "projecting prejudice on another group." First of all, we're responding to prejudice inflicted on us, and, second of all, even if we were projecting, as she puts it, slogans on signs are free speech--they don't take away anyone's rights! But, clearly, she--like so many right wing bimbos--cannot make this simple distinction.

    Bravo, Whoopi. She really was trying to put this in human terms, and some people should be able to respond to that. She also brought greater media attention to the protest.

  17. EH certainly didn't mind the "activist judges" that put Bush Jr. in the White House in 2000.
    By the way, what is the term for a female douche bag?

    Posted by: Okie | Nov 13, 2008 7:08:11 PM


  18. Look, we should be thankful that EH is as dumb as she is. While there really is no good argument in support of proposition 8 and the other anti-gay measures which passed, I would rather have the "right" be represented by someone as dumb as she is so that the average to intelligent person will be embarrassed to relate to her.

  19. Thank you, Whoopi. You have to show up for work at "The View," but you didn't have to go to the protest. That is the mark of conviction and integrity. You have to face the public, cameras, the cold...

    I hope lots more celebrities will come out to protests in the city of their choice this Sat. Nov. 15.

    If you have the privilege (and, at times, curse) of celebrity, it's wonderful to use it for good, and to make the world a better place.

  20. Good Whoopie! Now if they could just Lizzy Borden to shut-up!

    Posted by: Bojo | Nov 13, 2008 8:48:16 PM


  21. Thank you Whoopie. Is there a way we can all send an email/comment on the view that Hate Monger Elizabeth is very much wrong and that her arguments are not based on facts. Someone should call her for that.

  22. i'm a "survivor" freak and i hated the hobgoblin even then. i *so* wished i was on the show at that time so i could drown her.

    Posted by: big.peaches | Nov 13, 2008 11:02:49 PM


  23. Elisabeth... GIVE IT UP, you right-wing, closed minded little girl.

    "fighting fire with fire"???? HELL YEAH, Elisabitch. Get used to it.


    And to think I liked you on survivor.

  24. God she's stupid. It's about Constitutional rights: equal protection under the law. NO ONE can just vote that away. It's the justices' job to invalidate the unconstitutional decisions of the majority. Not that complicated, but apparently beyond the grasp of these right-wing troglodytes.

    Posted by: mark | Nov 13, 2008 11:51:07 PM


  25. I agree - equal rights for EVERYONE no matter what. We should stand for everything and everything should be acceptable. God made everyone and everyone should be happy no matter how other closed minded people feel about it. Next up - let's see Whoopi marching to support

    men being able to have several wives

    women being able to have several husbands

    people being able to be married to both men and women at the same time - really, why should bi-sexuals have to choose who they want to marry?

    get rid of the age limit on marriage - age is just a number and who are we to judge?

    does Whoopi has friends in Nambla she can help out

    feel free to add to the list - I don't want to leave out any minorities
