Folks, we’ve been sounding the warning bells about Cancel Culture for a while.
Because it’s not about freedom.
It’s a tactic that the left uses to silence political opposition.
But now, it’s gotten even worse.
Ana Navarro and the ladies on the View suggested that Tucker Carlson and Tulsi Gabbard should be investigated by the Department of Justice.
Because they are not parroting the talking points from US intelligence officials (the same officials, by the way, who were wrong about WMDs in Iraq).
But that’s not all.
She also appeared to suggest that they should be IMPRISONED!
What ever happened to freedom of speech?
What happened to the First Amendment?
This is exactly why Cancel Culture must be STOPPED immediately!
Watch the stunning exchange on The View:
This is just crazy. Whoopi basically endorses McCarthyism here. https://t.co/2lo55U1URb

Never Trumper Ana Navarro wants the Biden Administration to engage in the same authoritarian tactics that Putin does and restrict the free speech rights of America citizens.
How long before she goes full Soviet and calls to throw people in the Gulag for wrong think???

The View has been the center of controversy recently.
Don’t forget that just a few weeks ago, Whoopi Goldberg was suspended for saying that the holocaust had nothing to do about race.
Well, now the ladies at The View are at it again.
The Hill confirms:
The co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” on Monday slammed Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson for a number of comments he has made in recent weeks about Russian President Vladimir Putin and suggested the host be investigated by the Department of Justice (DOJ) over them.
“I think DOJ, in the same way that is setting up a task force to investigate [Russian] oligarchs, should look into people who are Russian propagandists and shilling for Putin,” host Ana Navarro said. “If you are a foreign asset to a dictator it should be investigated.”
Several of the show’s co-hosts expressed agreement as Navarro spoke.
Navarro’s assertion came amid a discussion about an article in Mother Jones this week outlining a reportedly leaked memo from the Kremlin that suggested it is “essential to use as much as possible fragments of broadcasts of the popular Fox News host Tucker Carlson,” as part of its propaganda efforts during the invasion of Ukraine.
Carlson, Fox’s top-rated host, has drawn widespread criticism in the United States for his comments about Putin and the war in Ukraine, in which he has questioned why Americans should care about the conflict and described it as a “border dispute.”
The bombastic host has suggested to his viewers that Democrats and media figures are telling the American people they should hate Putin and support war with Russia.
“Has Putin ever called me a racist? Has he threatened to get me fired for disagreeing with him? Has he shipped every middle-class job in my town to Russia? Did he manufacture a worldwide pandemic that wrecked my business and kept me indoors for two years?” Carlson asked during a recent episode of his popular prime-time show.
Other controversial figures like former Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-Hawaii), who has made several appearances on Carlson’s show to speak on various topics, have falsely suggested Ukraine is making chemical and biological weapons. U.S. officials say Russian propagandists have used the theory as a pretext for a potential attack.
The panelists on “The View” likened Gabbard’s recent comments to Carlson’s rhetoric on Putin and admonished them for helping the Kremlin’s efforts.
“I even hate that we’re discussing it. I think to myself, who is this woman? She’s no longer in Congress … the fact that we’re giving her oxygen is what makes her relevant,” Navarro said of Gabbard. “On the other hand, how do you not call out something that is repeating false Russian propaganda and has been brought down?”
Honestly, does this even surprise you, though?
They accused President Trump of being a Russian plant.
Everything the Left doesn’t like, they blame on the Russians.
So it only follows that they would turn to such petty insults.

But it wasn’t just Whoopi or Ana Navarro.
Joy Behar had to weigh in.
And you know what she had to say?
She said that Tucker Carlson should just go ahead and move to Moscow!
According to The Wrap:
The hosts of “The View” came straight for Tucker Carlson to kick things off on Monday morning, criticizing his commentary on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Host Joy Behar went so far as to say Carlson should outright move to Moscow.
On March 3, Carlson walked back some of his original comments on the invasion, saying, “We’ve been taken by surprise by the whole thing. We’re not the only ones who were, but we’re willing to admit it. The only thing more embarrassing than being wrong in your estimates is pretending that you weren’t.”
But, later that week, Carlson accused the Biden administration of actively goading Russia into invading Ukraine. Carlson has repeatedly criticized the Biden administration’s role in this conflict, and on Monday, “The View” guest host Alyssa Farah Griffin called Carlson’s commentary “bizarre” and “un-American.”
“What they’re parroting — what Tucker Carlson parrots every night on Fox News, what Tulsi Gabbard is spreading — is actually helping Putin get away with criminal acts against innocent Ukranian civilians,” she said. “It’s horrifying, and what’s so hard for me to understand, we’ve all been watching in horror as these people have been killed, mothers in maternity wings. Can you imagine taking the position of ‘Eh, Putin, not so bad of a guy?’”
Host Ana Navarro noted that she thinks the Fox News board of directors should intervene, “if they call themselves patriots.”
What do you think?
Do you think that the ladies at The View have a point?
Or are they completely off-base?
