VIDEO: Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Anti-Gay Defender Warrior Princess, Says David Tyree “Loves Everyone”

If you ever wanna really lose your f*cking mind, watch clips of Elisabeth Hasselbeck talking about gay marriage on The View for 4+ minutes. Really watching her talk about anything political is an exercise in emotional water torture (which Elisabeth probably thinks you deserve), but it’s especially grating today as we’re all on the edges of our proverbial seats regarding the vote on same-sex marriage in New York which could maybe kinda sorta happen today or possibly tomorrow or the day after that or never.

I don’t know why it surprises me every single time that Elisabeth still says these things without getting booed off the stage. Today, she spoke to her dear friend David Tyree, and she tells the ladies that David Tyree’s “beliefs” that gay marriage will lead to “anarchy” and same-sex parents cannot raise children are “respectful” and that the backlash against him is unfair.

Elisabeth: “I know David Tyree. I know his heart. He has no hate. He loves everyone. He believes everyone’s created by God and should be loved as such. He doesn’t have bigotry.”

How does Whoopi Goldberg or anyone with half a brain sit there every day without her head exploding? Like this time and also this time, when The Eth tried to knock some sense into her. At least Elisabeth managed to stay somewhat civil when Rachel Maddow was on the show.

When you “believe” that an entire group of people are not entitled to equal rights and unfit to raise children, and you express that belief out loud on television, it is by it’s very nature “disrespectful.” It is bigotry. And the fact that those views are simply tolerated by the other women at that table is why I don’t watch The View anymore. I think you need a radical left-winger like Rosie O’Donnell to balance out Elisabeth and when Rosie left the show, so did I.

Other folks on Team David Tyree include white supremacist named James Edwards.

Last night David Tyree visited Fox News to re-iterate his views on same-sex marriage and say that he is “totally against homosexuality.”

If he loves everyone, as Elisabeth says, then he’s sure got a funny way of showing it.
