In today’s episode of “The View,” a comment comparing Hamas to the Proud Boys ignited controversy for the show once again. While discussing the recent events related to Hamas’ call for a “Day of Jihad,” co-host Sunny Hostin disgustingly drew parallels between Hamas and the Proud Boys.
“I look at this from a legal perspective… [we] know that Hamas has been designated a terror organization, just like many other terror organizations have had this designation, like the Proud Boys here in the United States,” Hostin incorrectly said; the American organization is not characterized as a terror group.
Hamas, designated as a terror organization by many nations, called for a global “Day of Rage” in the wake of Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip which led to significant casualties. The call to action from the terrorist group witnessed significant ground support from Palestinian advocates, with many explicitly supporting Hamas and its actions.
Some of these advocacies escalated into open calls for violent attacks against Israel. The Israel National Security Council and Ministry of Foreign Affairs have issued advisories to Israelis overseas, urging them to steer clear from such protests and to remain vigilant.

Did I miss where Proud Boys murdered, butchered, tortured, raped and abducted more than 1300 Americans?

Has the Proud Boys massacred anyone here in the US ? That’s a very sick comment from her. She needs to be shut down

This crosses so many lines. These people are sick and should be thrown out of the public spotlight.
