Whoopi Goldberg, co-host of the “View,” made a rather puzzling remark while discussing the state of America’s regard for Syrian refugees in the wake of the Paris attacks, saying fears of letting Muslims cross U.S. borders are baseless because even Christians can be dangerous and violent – for instance, Adolf Hitler, she said.
Specifically, Goldberg was speaking critically of those Republicans who hesitate to open arms to Syrian refugees at this point in time, out of concern ISIS, as members threatened, might be using the crisis to sneak terrorists across the border.
Some with security concerns have suggested allowing only Christian refugees into the nation in order to lower the chances of radicalized Muslims committing acts of jihad in the country. But Goldberg asked, the Christian Post reported: “Is this really going to help root out ISIS?” Co-host Joy Behar remarked those who call for the U.S. to take in only Christian refugees are actually very un–Christian. “The irony of saying that only Christians could come is not very Christian to say that, is it?” she asked. Behar then spoke of Timothy McVeigh, who killed over 600 with a bomb attack on a federal building in Oklahoma City in 1995, and his supposed Christian beliefs. MORE
