‘He is the reason’: The View shreds Trump after he blames anti-racists for racial violence

On Friday, the panel on ABC’s “The View” tore into President Donald Trump’s assertion that “Antifa” was equally to blame for the violent melee in Charlottesville, VA that sprang out of the “Unite the Right” march. “You need to sign the thing,” said Whoopi Goldberg, referring to Congress’ bipartisan declaration decrying white supremacy, the KKK, neo-Nazis and hate groups. “You don’t qualify that and start bringing in other things.”

“Antifa is one of those things,” she continued, “that somebody came up as a catchphrase so you could say, ‘Oh, there’s violence on the other side.'” Sunny Hostin agreed, “My understanding is that it doesn’t have a leader, it doesn’t have a headquarters. It’s not an organized movement. I do not think that you can compare this Antifa movement with the KKK.” “The KKK has been terrorizing my community for centuries,” she said. “So this false equivalency that there’s something on both sides is ridiculous.” “He needs to admit that he is the reason we are seeing this racial divide in our country,” she said as the in-studio audience roared with approval. “My fear is that this term ‘Antifa,’ they’re trying to use it to scare people so that they don’t stand up against hate,” Hostin continued. “When is it wrong with standing up against hate? It’s never wrong.”
