In yet another example of why ABC’s “The View” needs to go, one of the co-hosts of that collection of clucking hens, Sunny Hostin, launched a vicious, mean-hearted attack on the recently departed queen.
This should have been a nice comment about a woman who kept the throne intact, and monarchy respected for decades, but it became a tirade about racism and the evils that the empire has done to people. Watch that here:
As you can hear in the video, Hostin, ranting and raving about the Queen, the British Empire, and “racism,” said that while she lived in Great Britain she got caught up in the “pomp” of the monarchy but is now a detractor of it, saying::
“Because if you really think about what the monarchy was built on, it was built on the backs of black and brown people.”
Umm, no. The British Empire was built on the back of the steam engine, the Martini-Henry rifle, the Maxim gun, quinine, the telegram, and the railroad. Those “black and brown” people were the subjects of the crown abroad that benefitted tremendously from it. Thanks to the Brits, they saw slavery eradicated, education and medical resources come to their communities, and stable rule of law established out of anarchy.
Hostin, however, didn’t recognize any of this. Instead, she continued her savage attack on the queen, saying:
“She [the Queen] wore a crown with pillaged stones from India and Africa. And now what you’re seeing, at least in the Black communities that I’m a part of, they want reparations.”
Ah, so it’s a moneygrab for those that can’t achieve on their own. Got it.
Continuing, Hostin went on to call for Charles III to start “modernizing” the monarchy, whatever that means, saying:
“It’s time for him to modernize this monarchy and for him to provide reparations to all of to those colonies. And I also think, you know, a monarchy, it’s very easy to uplift one family. The harder thing is to uplift all families and I think he’s in a position to be able to do that.”
“See this sacred institution that’s existed in its present form for centuries? Well you need to demolish it so that American blacks and pot-smoking junkies in Jamacia are less angry with you for half a second,” she might as well have said.
Hostin’s vile remarks about Elizabeth II, the monarchy, were in response to a more vicious tweet by Uju Anya (a black Carnegie Mellon professor), who posted:
“the chief monarch of a thieving raping genocidal empire is finally dying. May her pain be excruciating.”
What horrible people. The left is truly full of bitter, angry shrews that seek to tear down what they know they could never dream of building. If left to their own devices and not helped out by those with kinder hearts and bigger brains.
