Sunny Demands ‘Limitation’ on Free Speech, Hints Jerry Jones Could Be KKK

News & Politics

Racist Sunny Hostin was at it again on Friday’s edition of The View. During a discussion about Kanye West’s heinous comments spouting anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial, the ABC co-host demanded a “limitation” on the First Amendment. Something she surely doesn’t intend to apply to her, as she followed up with a disgusting assertion that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones could have been in the KKK when he was 14.

In their conversation rightfully denouncing West’s anti-Semitism and praise for Hitler and Nazis, co-host Joy Behar tried to tie in billionaire Elon Musk, suggesting he was personally responsible for a supposed “81 percent” increase in anti-Semitism on Twitter (she didn’t cite the source of her stat).

“Elon Musk supposedly was going to buy Twitter to open up the – the – I guess free speech town square, but it’s just opened up racism and anti-Semitism and bigotry,” Hostin bemoaned in response.

When asked if there was a way to get a handle on hate speech, Hostin called for “some sort of limitation [to be] placed” on the First Amendment (Click “expand”):

BEHAR: Is there no way to control hate speech, Sunny? I mean, free speech, hate speech.

HOSTIN: It’s really difficult and it’s something that I struggle with because I think, you know, Kanye is clearly a sick person, and I don’t know about Alex Jones and Nick Fuentes, but I believe in the First Amendment and I believe you should be allowed to espouse your beliefs. But there has to be some sort of limitation placed.

The condemnation of West and his ilk was broken by co-host Ana Navarro, who hijacked the conversation to draw attention to Jones. She began the detour agreeing with basketball player LeBron James’s hypocritical gripe that people go to him for his opinion on matters dealing with race and bigotry.

“LeBron made the point that he gets all these questions about Kyrie Irving, about everybody else, and all these things. He says, you guys haven’t asked me about Jerry Jones and why the disparate attention?” she said.

They missed the obvious point that James gets people asking him about those things because he’s put himself out there as an activist on the issue of so-called “social justice.” He gets asked about Irving because he’s a fellow player in his league, while Jones is an owner in a different one. Meanwhile, The View doesn’t have an issue with James’s silence on China’s genocide of the Uyghurs.

“I hope Jerry Jones really does take the opportunity to own this, to talk about it, to explain it and to talk about the change that has happened in 65 years, and his role in it,” Navarro proclaimed, saying he’s someone “who has so many black players, who has such a platform, who has all this money, who’s got all this access”

In the 1957 photo in question, a 14-year-old Jones can be seen craning his neck from what The Washington Post reluctantly admits is “yards” away from other teens blocking passage of black students from entering a high school. And Hostin admitted Jones “claims he was just a casual observer at that event.”

Joy Behar pointed out that Jones, who’s now 80, was only 14 in 1957. But Hostin countered, pointing to how other kids Jones’s age at the time were in the KKK, seemingly hinting at the possibility that Jones could have been one of them:

BEHAR: He was 14.

HOSTIN: Yeah, he was 14, he was a casual observer.

BEHAR: And how old is he now?

HOSTIN: There were 14-year-olds in the KKK as well. Right?

SARA HAINES: 80.

BEHAR: Oh, he’s 80 now.

In some confusing remarks, Hostin went on to lament that she doesn’t see the same “energy” used to talk about “anti-blackness” and the “oppression” observed in the Jones story when compared to Kanye and anti-Semitism.

“I don’t like to compare oppression because I think that’s offensive. But I would like to see it treated — oppression treated the same across the board and I don’t see that energy when it comes to Jerry Jones,” she demanded.

This ridiculousness from Sunny Hostin was made possible because of lucrative sponsorships from Pfizer and Air Wick. Their contact information is linked.

ABC’s The View
December 2, 2022

JOY BEHAR: So yesterday, Kanye West found a safe space for his anti-Semitism when he was interviewed by conspiracy theorist and all-around awful person Alex Jones. West showed up in some kind of bondage hood and proclaimed his love for Hitler and the Nazis.

(…)

11:04:19 a.m. Eastern

SUNNY HOSTIN: Kanye West, I believe, also allowed – before he was deplatformed from Twitter – allowed Alex Jones and Nick Fuentes to live tweet from his own account to his 32 million followers.

BEHAR: Which by the way, let me interrupt for one second. Anti-Semitic posts referring to Jews and Judaism soared more than 81 percent in the two weeks after Elon Musk acquired Twitter.

HOSTIN: And that’s the other thing. I mean, when you think about deplatforming, it’s also risen against black people. It’s risen against women. And so, you know, Elon Musk supposedly was going to buy Twitter to open up the – the – I guess free speech town square, but it’s just opened up racism and anti-Semitism and bigotry.

BEHAR: Is there no way to control hate speech, Sunny? I mean, free speech, hate speech.

HOSTIN: It’s really difficult and it’s something that I struggle with because I think, you know, Kanye is clearly a sick person, and I don’t know about Alex Jones and Nick Fuentes, but I believe in the First Amendment and I believe you should be allowed to espouse your beliefs. But there has to be some sort of limitation placed.

ANA NAVARRO: You’ve got money. You’ve got people. You’re mentally ill? Go get help. But I am not excusing the horrible things that you say.

[Applause]

And talking about not excusing, yesterday LeBron James gave an interview or maybe it was Wednesday which I thought was so incredibly poignant where he brought up the picture from 1957 of Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys standing in Arkansas as a mob of white boys were blocking black students from going into a high school.

And, you know, LeBron made the point that he gets all these questions about Kyrie Irving, about everybody else, and all these things. He says, you guys haven’t asked me about Jerry Jones and why the disparate attention?

And I do think it’s important and I hope that Jerry Jones, who has so many black players, who has such a platform, who has all this money, who’s got all this access, I hope Jerry Jones really does take the opportunity to own this, to talk about it, to explain it and to talk about the change that has happened in 65 years, and his role in it.

HOSTIN: Well, he claims he was just a casual observer at that event.

BEHAR: He was 14.

HOSTIN: Yeah, he was 14, he was a casual observer.

BEHAR: And how old is he now?

HOSTIN: There were 14-year-olds in the KKK as well. Right?

SARA HAINES: 80.

BEHAR: Oh, he’s 80 now.

HOSTIN: But I think, when you think about anti-blackness, people need to keep the same energy that we’re seeing when we’re talking about Kanye and we’re talking about anti-Semites. I don’t like to compare oppression because I think that’s offensive.

HAINES: Yeah.

HOSTIN: But I would like to see it treated — oppression treated the same across the board and I don’t see that energy when it comes to Jerry Jones.
