Talk show host Joy Behar has knocked gay Republican group GOProud, telling them their money won't protect them from homophobia.

Behar's current talk show, Say Anything!, premiered on cabler Current in September. She also co-hosts ABC's The View with Barbara Walters, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, Whoopi Goldberg and Sherri Sheperd.

In an interview with gay glossy The Advocate, Behar said her show was trying to book more Republicans – she mentioned conservative author Ann Coulter – which led to her rant against GOProud.

“I don't understand the GOProud people either,” she said. “Why are they voting for someone who's against gay marriage, gays in the military? The Republican platform wants to roll back into 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell.' I mean, that is completely retro. It's not all about your pocketbooks, guys. I guess they feel their money will protect them from homophobia. A lot of people felt that way, in like Germany, for example.”
