Christian refugees from the Middle East are just as dangerous as Muslim ones because Hitler was allegedly a Christian, Whoopi Goldberg said on Tuesday’s episode of “The View.”
During the segment, the show’s hosts talked about the ongoing Syrian refugee crisis in the wake of the Paris attacks. At least one of the attackers gained entry into France through the country’s refugee resettlement program.
Since then, many have raised safety concerns over accepting migrants via a program with lax security screening requirements that have in the past allowed terrorists to enter the U.S. Some GOP presidential candidates, namely Ted Cruz, have said that if they were in charge, only Christian refugees would be allowed to resettle in the United States.
Co-host Joy Behar exclaimed that this stance wasn’t very Christian, then implied that the Christian refugees are super dangerous.
“[Oklahoma City bomber] Timothy McVeigh was a Christian,” Behar said. “Just sayin’.”
Behar provided no evidence to support her assertion, which is somewhat understandable since McVeigh wasn’t a Christian. McVeigh identified as an agnostic and said his violent actions weren’t motivated by any religious associations, but by an extreme hatred for the federal government.
