Someone accurately pointed out it's called "The View" not The Views. There is one perspective on that show, any dissenters are considered to be racists, morons or homophobes.

If you watch the entire clip you will see Walters called out Whoopi and other one, and then got Bill the retract what he had said about Muslims. Due to the ending it worked out well IMO.

And differing opinions on Those conservative shows are treated how? With respect and dignity? LMAO
Despite what the blogs will tell you I've seen O'reilly have a lot of civil discussions with people he disagreed with. He gets to yelling if they won't answer his question.

I've never seen O'Reilly get up and walk out on anyone. And many of those he disagrees with he and they would consider each other friends.

There can be tolerance of anothers opinion even if you don't agree. However, I've seen little tolerance of other viewpoints by some of those on the view. Just because someone doesn't agree with you it doesn't make them a racist, etc.....

He didn't really retract what he said. He just clarified "extemist Muslims". As he points out we all know that by now. Doesn't change the fact they were Muslims.

I have a question though. Whoopi pulled out a tired and lame response about Tim McViegh being a Christian. Now anyone with any sense knows that's different because he didn't do his act in the name of Christianity. But I've heard people say this before. My question is, do we really even know if he was a Christian? I never heard him mention it.

Well yes she got mad, she still thinks Bush and Cheney did it.

i find most conservative shows mistreat and disrespect the american public.
Sort of like Obama/Pelosie/Reid does on a daily basis? Only with our tax dollars rather than words. Words will not make slaves of our grand children to the national debt like the mistreatment and disrespect this group shows all of us with their irresponsible economic policies.

Take a reality break on occasion.

Bill O just baited that. Even for someone who thinks he's educating them, he was pretty tactless. As a man he should have had some courtesy toward the ladies and been more respectful..

Some Muslims killed some of us here. Most Muslims didn't kill any of us here but until Muslims, in general, start wearing white and black hats (metaphoricaly speaking) it's not hard to grasp that there is going to be a general and persistant distrust.

That such distrust is painting with a wide brush is not disputed, that it will persist is not.

Anyone here ever sit in detention with an entire class because no one would out the clown who shot the spitball? Same deal. If the Muslim world doesn't like being distrusted by the Christian world then they are going to have to push away from the extreamists. That, of course, would invite the ire of the waccos back on them, but who do you want pissed at you; a flea-bitten moron with an AK or the most powerfull nation on Earth?

I like Whoopie's craft but her social commentary is unrealistic, ivory tower bullspittal.

It didn't help Muslims when many of them (just citizens) were seen celebrating in the streets and others who were considered community leaders laid blame on the United States for the actions of the muslim radicals.

Whoopi is as liberal as there is and uses her celebrity status (well, celebrity to a few) to make those middle of the road politically think because she starred in a few movies she is smarter than the average voter. She's not a bit different than Sean Penn, Susan Sarandon, George Clooney, Ed Asner or Tim Robbins. Maybe she hasn't visited Hugo Chavez yet but probably only because she hasn't been invited. There are conservative actors no doubt, apparently fewer and most less likely to speak out in public.
