Joy Behar is trying to cover-up her blackface moment. The 76-year-old admitted in 20216 that she dressed up for Halloween as a “beautiful African-American woman” in a clip that has resurfaced amidst the recent controversy over the Virginia Governor. “The View” has intentionally refused to discuss the blackface controversy. They must be terrified that Behar’s antics will be exposed. ABC fired Roseanne Barr over a tweet, and now they are in panic mode. Is karma coming to get Joy Behar? Don’t miss this.

Joy Behar is in a real pickle. The radical leftists in the Democratic Party have caused a climate of judging everyone as racists, and that is now coming back to haunt them. Now, everyone is a racist, and if you are caught wearing blackface from 40 years ago, the new leftist lynch mob is coming for you.

It’s the same thing that happened to Brett Kavanaugh. Everyone is also a misogynist, or in his case a rapist, and there can be no middle ground or common sense. There are no trials or innocent until proven guilty. And Joy Behar was one of the leading voices egging on the radical left to pass judgment on Kavanaugh and ruin a man’s life.

It’s funny how The View has been completely mum over the blackface controversy of Virginia Governor Ralph Northam. You’d think this would be a controversy right up their ally. A white man wearing blackface caught in a yearbook picture. You’d think the shrews of The View would be on the front lines screaming that he is a racist and must be ruined for life.

But they are not, and now we know why. “A long-forgotten video clip from ABC’s The View resurfaced on Wednesday that showed co-host Joy Behar trying to explain a Halloween costume from when she was younger,” Fox News reports.

“The clip was shared by The Wrap media editor Jon Levine. Behar was seen discussing a New York Times op-ed about the resurgence of curly hair during the show in 2016. Behar showed her colleagues and the audience a picture of herself with curly hair when she was 29 years old,” Fox News added.

The co-hosts appeared surprised by her drastically different look. Raven-Symoné, a former co-host, asked, “Joy, are you black?”

“I was so cute,” Behar said. “Joy… are you my auntie, Joy?” Raven-Symoné joked. Behar explained that the picture was taken at a Halloween party where she dressed up as a “beautiful African woman” and stressed that it was her actual hair. At that point, you can hear Raven-Symone say, “Yeah, you in black…” She stopped herself on the word “blackface.” She clearly said “black,” but “face” was drowned out by the laughter.

Raven-Symone then seems a bit perturbed but refuses to bring up blackface any further. Now, that was in 2016. It’s 2019, and the radical left along with the Democrats have become the Gestapo and everyone is a racist. The ABC network is running scared. The exact ridiculous criteria they have judged President Donald Trump on is now coming back to haunt them.

“ABC News’ The View co-host Joy Behar remained stone silent Thursday regarding old footage of her donned in blackface that was unearthed this week as similar images have caused outrage and derailed careers,” Fox News reports. “Behar did not address the situation during the first episode of The View to air after her controversial decades-old image caused an uproar on social media.”

So should Joy Behar get a dose of her own medicine? Americans are weighing in. “Don’t you get it? The rules do not apply the same for liberals. They make the rules up as they go to suit themselves,” tweeted Lorie Osborn.

Twitter user “RG” thinks Joy should be fired. “Why is she getting a pass on this when others made same mistake 50 years ago and their careers ruined??!”

Yes, this is what happens when leftist nutjobs like Behar crucify good men like Brett Kavanaugh, or Megyn Kelly gets fired for mentioning blackface. They changed the rules, and now ABC is hoping Joy’s blackface moment won’t get noticed.

Here’s the real problem. Does anyone really know a real racist? Seriously, how many real racists are out there? We are talking “Ku Klux Klan” level of racism. Most people will say they do not personally know a racist. Yet, the left sees racism where there is none. They created this climate of hate and instant judgment, and now they must reap what they have sown.

Should big mouth Behar get fired? At the very least ABC needs to make Joy Behar issue apologies to Brett Kavanaugh and President Trump, and any other person she has judged according to the new leftist standards. ABC needs to apologize to Roseanne Barr.

Let this be a “teachable moment” as Valerie Jarrett arrogantly said when Barr was fired. Rampant racism isn’t happening in America. It’s a dangerous game the leftists have been playing, and now Joy Behar is feeling the heat as karma comes to get her.
