TPUSA Threatens The View with Legal Action After “Neo-Nazi” Comments

To the polarising, hysterical Left, everyone to the right of them may be wantonly branded a neo-Nazi, even by association with a random group of protestors nearby.

TPUSA has issued cease and desist demands on The View after hosts Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg inferred the conservative organisation was affiliated with Neo-Nazism.

The organisation known as Turning Point USA drew public attention to The View’s defamatory comments in a Twitter thread, explaining,

‘Yesterday, The View & Whoopi Goldberg smeared and lied about TPUSA regarding an incident where supposed “Nazis” showed up outside of the Student Action Summit.’

View host, Joy Behar criticised TPUSA implying the organisation was welcoming the unknown protestors.

Behar said,

“Neo-Nazis were out there in the front of the conference with anti-Semitic slurs and, you know, the Nazi swastika and a picture of a so-called Jewish person with exaggerated features, just like Goebbels did during the Third Reich. It’s the same thing, right out of that same playbook.”

Irrespective of impromptu ‘on-air legal disclaimers’ attempting to cover the show from legal action, Whoopi Goldberg doubled down on the smear by falsely accusing TPUSA of “embracing [neo-Nazis]” at the conference, incorrectly asserting,

“I know they were not in the building, but they were in the mix of people at the thing.”

“Whoopsie” Goldberg’s comments were followed by yet another on-air disclaimer acknowledging that TPUSA had nothing to do with the yet-to-be-identified “neo-Nazi” protestors. To which the once-great Sister Act star, defending her original statement, said, “My point was metaphorical.”

Behar and Goldberg made the association despite TPUSA’s widely publicised condemnation of an unknown group of alleged “neo-Nazis”, who had turned up to protest outside TPUSA’s Student Action Summit in Tampa, Florida this week.

TPUSA’s Twitter account described how the mysterious group arrived after a flock of ‘ANTIFA and left-wing protestors had dispersed.’

Questioning whether there was a possible connection between the three groups of protesters, Turning Point asked,

‘Who are these people? We have no idea, and apparently ABC and other news media aren’t curious enough to find out.’

In a press release, Andrew Kolvet, a spokesman for TPUSA, quoted by The Hill, confirmed no “nazis” were at the event, adding,

“TPUSA 100% condemns those ideologies in the strongest of terms. Since these individuals were located on public property, our security attempted to, but was not permitted to remove them. We have no idea who they are or why they were here.”

TPUSA founder and president Charlie Kirk was quick to respond to The View, announcing on Twitter that he was:

‘Talking to lawyers. Many think we have a strong case. You cannot smear minors as Nazis and get away with it. It impacts them for the rest of their life. #SueTheView

Kirk’s formal letter demanded,

‘That ABC immediately cease and desist from further unlawfully defaming TPUSA, retract the defamatory statements identified above, and issue a public statement apologizing for and correcting the above defamatory and false statements.’ (source)

The View has since apologised for their reckless remarks.

TPUSA acknowledged the apology, writing on Twitter:

‘The View has issued yet another formal correction to TPUSA and its students LIVE on air. The apology was issued by Sara Haines.’

However, they added, Whoopi Goldberg is yet to formally retract her statement saying ‘TPSUA “metaphorically” embraced “Nazis.”

The View’s producers having to constantly hand out on-air disclaimers strongly suggests the crew and talk-show hosts applied zero due diligence to the subject matter before commenting on it.

Associating TPUSA with neo-Nazis, without having all the facts, was either intentionally malicious, or simply just another example of how wokeism compromises professionalism.
