Joy Behar Calls for Deception to Confiscate Guns

U.S.A.-( Joy Behar revealed a key piece of the Progressive Project to her listeners on 4 November, 2019. She advised politicians who want to confiscate guns from U.S. citizens to deceive the voters so the politicians could get elected; then confiscate the guns.

To the Left, this is nothing controversial. The whole point of Progressivism is the electorate is too stupid and ignorant to govern themselves. They believe the purpose of an elite is to deceive the governed (through manipulation of the information they receive, and controlling the narrative), so as to allow the elite to keep power and govern as they wish.  The purpose of the media is to be “gatekeepers” of the information flow and to create the desired narratives.

But Behar violated an important Progressive rule: Do not tell the victims of the con they are being conned. From

Politicians seeking to confiscate guns from Americans shouldn’t share their plans with the public beforehand and should seek to maintain an element of surprise, Joy Behar said on “The View” Monday.

Behar was discussing former 2020 presidential hopeful Beto O’Rourke, a Democrat from Texas, and said it was foolish of him to announce his plans for gun confiscation before he was elected. She advised all politicians to go after the country’s guns after they’ve assumed office.

“They should not tell everything they’re going to do. If you’re going to take people’s guns away, wait until you get elected — then take the guns away,” she said. “Don’t tell them ahead of time.”

One of the many problems with the Progressive Project is its reliance on false premises. The Progressives put forward the narrative that experts were far better suited to govern the country than politicians selected by voters. But, if you have a policy preference, you can easily find experts to validate it. There are “experts” on every side of every issue. It is not hard to create “experts” to give you “studies” to push whatever policy you want. If you control academia and the educational system, it is even easier.

We see precisely that in “Climate Change”, “White Privilege”, and “Gun Control”.

But truth is a powerful antidote. No matter how many millions of dollars a Bloomberg or the U.N., or U.S. governmental agencies, pour into creating the experts and research to validate their preferred policies, objective reality exists.

It only takes a small amount of bandwidth to allow countervailing facts, or interpretations of agreed on facts, to discredit mountains of “experts” and “studies”.

The Progressives have no problem with deception, because they have no foundational ethics except the drive to political power. Government is their god.

The embrace of deception is there for anyone who wishes to study Progressive theory. Most people do not have the time or inclination to do the reading. Behar made the mistake of allowing a peek behind the curtain to a wide audience.

Conservatives, on the other hand, are more constrained. They agree, in principle, that lying and deception of the electorate is bad. It undermines the base premise of the American system of self-government and limited government.

This is the main reason for the divide between Conservatives and Progressives on the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment directly limits governmental power. That is its prime purpose. “Shall not infringe” is a direct, clear, limit on governmental authority.  This enrages Progressives. It is a direct affront to their entire philosophy. 20% of voters believe limits on governmental power are immoral.

It is no coincidence that 20% of voters believe owning a gun is immoral.

It explains why Progressives do not do the obvious, embrace the Second Amendment, and win election after election. To do so, they would be contradicting their own core principle, and, particularly, stymieing their long term strategy of destroying the gun culture through cutting off salami slices of the Second Amendment until nothing is left.

To Progressives, the idea of allowing a limit on the government is evil. Progressives, or the Left, in general, will claim limiting the government is to limit its ability to do good. But all the great disasters in governments around the world in the last century claimed they were using power to achieve the greater good. Stalin, Pol Poi, Mao, Castro, Chavez, Hitler, Mussolini, Roosevelt, Churchill, and al-Baghdadi, all claimed to be pursuing the greater good.

Conservatives, on the other hand see nothing wrong with the Second Amendment. It is simply another check and balance to governmental power, part of the social contract of the Constitution between the people and the government. Government must be limited to assure personal freedom.

As the media fragments, allowing more viewpoints to be heard, Progressive power will decrease. Since the middle 1960s, at least, it has depended on its overwhelming ability to control the narrative.  Joy Behar did not do the Progressive Project any favors by exposing its embrace of deception.

What was unfortunate is that Meghan McCain didn’t slap that buffoon down and ask her if she’d be OK if a politician was to be that deceptive concerning our 1st Amendment too? Then ask the audience that cheered what other right would you like taken away in the same manner?


Look up the word “CUNT” in the encyclopedia….
Yup, the picture and explanation will be all about THAT fugly, socialist, lying BITCH ! Her own deception is obvious, pretends to be an American, couldn’t be farther from the truth.


Can’t Understand Normal Thinking


Josephine Victoria Occhiuto, nee’Behar (not married to Behar anymore, and is shacking up with a Jewish gentleman of no report) is a closet NY Italian whose mother, Carbone and father Gino was improvished and would roll over in their graves if they knew their daughter , 77, is trashing their American Dream. Occhiuto has a daughter Evi and a grandson born in 2011. If I can find this crap on a network Scum, then just guess how to find out all the other crap about her. Do unto her as she does unto Constitutionals! GOP try to hard to be… Read more »

This LIAR on the show is exhibiting the NATURAL BEHAVIOR of 99% of the DemocRATic National COMMUNIST party members. No surprise here. Here is an oldie but goody to refresh the working minds of America: “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is… Read more »


Just as O’Rourke pulled back the curtain on confiscation, Behar has done the same. Lie to the voters and then when in office enact your true intentions. Thanks for alerting the ignorant voters Joy.


She hasn’t alerted anyone but the ignorant,MOST of us have been preparing for this for 30 years.

It’s always about the children. The ones they don’t murder before they are even born.

Wild Bill

@Dubi, you have your finger on the pulse. Local school boards are within our grasp! School boards determine superintendents and principals. They determine teachers, curriculums, and books. Those things prepare children for the socialist onslaught of college. Submit the paperwork. Run for school board
Parents and grand parents can learn up children long before world socialism gets a hold of them.


Dear ignorant Joy, fortunately WE conservatives are not as stupid as you are(ever heard of the CONSTITUTION?),besides who is going to confiscate 400 million firearms and 16 million plus AR/AK clones?. Do you think the LE or Military would shoot their own families?,and if they did what you suggest, their Oath would be broken and they would automatically become enemies of the state.
Make your LAWS, WE WILL NOT COMPLY………..push will have come to SHOVE.
Also,IF your side does it, you LOSE and BADLY.


Joy can’t spell constitution let understand the document.


WOW she needs mental help YESTERDAY can we “red flag” her?

Idaho Bob

Just more of the same from the evil left; lie and deceive.

“You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it (John 8:44)”.

They follow lockstep in their father’s footsteps.

@IB, That is a really good verse!


STOP TRYING TO RATIONALIZE THESE PEOPLE! She is a super socialist left wing Jewish nut cake. I mention that because it is a fact that 90 percent of Jews are liberal, look at the politics of New York, Florida, Soros, etc.–you would think they would have learned from WWII and elsewhere. Curious? First, I am FAR from anti-semantic. Want a good read then check out Norman Podhoretz’s book (he is a Jew) on this subject–Amazon, Barnes & Nobel, etc.. It is what it is!


It is also a mystery to me there are so many liberal Jews. Liberals an enemy to Israel, and the Democrats are the party of the KKK. A conservative says something 40 years ago as a teen and they want his head on a stick. But old Senator Byrd was head of the KKK got a pass because he renounced them.


It’s too bad she is so old. Otherwise we could wish for a good strong case of toxic shock.
