Geller states that the confrontation continued after the break:The controversy started when Bolling played a clip of Beckel's previous appearance on the show in which he stated:
"Look, at some point, I know it's sensitive here in New York and probably New Jersey, but we have to get over 9/11."
What did he mean by ‘we have to get over 9/11'? According to Beckel, this was simply an expression of frustration for a variety of things, such as extra security at airports and a few other minor inconveniences designed to catch "a bunch of non-existent terrorists."
Bob Beckel's mantra
...Beckel might have been feeling the stress of trying to defend such a blatantly insensitive statement, by providing a blatantly inaccurate defense, as he experienced a misogynistic meltdown directed at Geller in the middle of the segment in which he said:
"You're a woman, you better be careful about saying who I carry water for."
...(Geller) "I was the only female on the panel and as we were prepping (getting mic'ed etc) for the show, Beckel was regaling his victims (Bob Hemmer, David Webb and Bolling) with sordid tales of pole dancers and the like. Grotesque and deliberate."
"When we cut to break, Beckel chided Bolling for not bringing ‘Jewish slumlords' on the show (referring to Bolling's segment on Imam Rauf's status as a New Jersey slumlord, so named in a lawsuit against Rauf by Union City.) When I heard Beckel's Jew hating belch, I said ‘and you're an anti-Semite.' He told me to ‘kiss his ass' to which I responded that he would never get anyone anywhere in the world to get with that."Not surprising that Beckel turned out to be the misogynist type and has such a tawdry view of women. In 2002, Beckel was blackmailed by a $300 per hour prostitute, "Tiffany" whom he paid a check for her services. Beckel showed more of what a low-class, SOB he is when he called Hannah Giles a "ho" on national TV. Giles threw Beckel's hooker fetish back in his face.
