The Best Thing on The Internet.....Ever




Unintentionally Funny Online Petition to Fire Elisabeth from 'View'

Posted by Lynn Davidson on May 30, 2007

A website has sprung up called

  • Fire Elizabeth Hasselbeck.com

  • and has a petition for people to sign if they think token non-liberal Elisabeth Hasselbeck should be fired. So far over 18,880 people have signed in support of firing the woman the petition calls the "aggressor throughout the entire discussion." The petition reads like a satire of what actually happened but with the two hosts' names reversed.

    "Elisabeth began by interrupting Joy with sarcastic comments as Joy attempted to provide some facts about the George Bush presidency, and then continued as Elisabeth angrily defended her refusal to respond to the Republican pundits who incorrectly said that Rosie called the U.S. troops terrorists. As the discussion progressed, Rosie repeatedly tried to de-escalate the situation and not get into a disagreement. However, Elisabeth angrily continued in her blind defense of this administration and her criticisms of Rosie's views. While many have portrayed this fight as one over politics, it was really a fight about friendship and Elisabeth's refusal to support Rosie by denouncing what these pundits were attempting to say about her."

    I see that the petitioners went along with Rosie's claim that she was simply asking very rational patriotic questions and just "inquiring" when she said "655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?"

    When Hasselbeck asked "Who are you calling terrorists now? Americans?"Rosie replied, "I'm saying if you were in Iraq, and the other country, the United Stated, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens what would you call us?"

    Yeah, she definitely didn't intend to insinuate that American troops are the terrorists in Iraq. In fact, she was actually explaining how much she supports them and what a great job they are doing. I bet if it weren't for that petulent "aggressor" Elisabeth, the very next words out of Rosie's mouth would have been, "USA all the way! These colors don't run, baby!"



    Here's the most unintentionally ironic part:

    "It is unfortunate that Rosie chose to leave The View after this incident, when it is Elisabeth who should be removed from the show for her angry and hateful tirade. Elisabeth has consistently used The View as a platform to perpetuate inaccuracies about the Iraq War and has shown a blatant disregard for the feelings of others who disagree with her.

    While the purpose of The View is for different views to be expressed, each co-host should be able to express their views without being attacked by a closed-minded co-host who blindly refuses to listen to facts and uses the show to angrily spout propaganda.

    This petition calls for ABC to fire Hasselbeck from The View to ensure that all reasonable views can continue to be heard."


    That's classic. It's like I'm reading "A Modest Proposal" for the tin foil hat talk-show set.




    Rosie's own words need no further comment. As Newsbusters reported.


    O'DONNELL: I haven't -- I just want to say something. 655,000 Iraqi civilians are dead. Who are the terrorists?

    HASSELBECK: Who are the terrorists?

    O'DONNELL: 655,000 Iraqis -- I'm saying you have to look, we invaded --

    HASSELBECK: Wait, who are you calling terrorists now? Americans?

    O'DONNELL: I'm saying if you were in Iraq, and the other country, the United States, the richest in the world, invaded your country and killed 655,000 of your citizens, what would you call us?

    HASSELBECK: Are we killing their citizens or are their people also killing their citizens?

    O'DONNELL: We're invading a sovereign nation, occupying a country against the U.N.

    and then this gem:

    O'DONNELL: I believe, Elisabeth, that 6,000 dead Americans from 9/11 and from this war is a lot less than 655,000 dead Iraqis.

    HASSELBECK: But do you believe in terrorism?

    O'DONNELL: I believe every human life is equal.

    HASSELBECK: Do you believe there is terrorism?

    O'DONNELL: I believe in state sponsored terrorism. I believe there is government sponsored terrorism by every nation in the world, including ours.


    By the way, that number didn't use a body count !!!!
    Lancet's 650,000 Iraqi Casualty Study Has No Scientific Standing.

    655,000 Iraquis killed in 4 years = 163,750 per year = 13645 per month = 454 per day

    did the body count ever get that high in ANY DAY?

    I'm pretty sure that if it had, we would have heard about it.

    Everytime I read the transcript or watch the video, I thank God that Rosie O'Donnell is not a Republican. I would not want her crazy ass on my side!
