A potty-mouthed City Council wannabe in Queens has gone after a number of women on social media — along with joking about rape and apparently challenging a man to a fight after getting into an argument on Facebook.
Steve Behar, a Democrat running to represent eastern Queens, recently came under fire for a sexist tweet targeting opponent Linda Lee. He suggested her message boiled down to saying, “Vote for Me I’m a Mommy!”
Since then, more outrageous social media posts by Behar have surfaced.
“F--k you ... You’re a stupid racist c--t!” he wrote a Long Island woman on Facebook.
“You’re a Nazi c--t!” he raged in a follow-up post.
Outgoing Councilman Barry Grodenchik is backing Behar, his staff attorney, to take over his seat.
Among Behar’s ravings about Christine Blasey Ford’s sexual assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, Behar wrote on Facebook over two years ago, “This woman is not credible and I refuse to destroy someone’s career without any due process.”
Around the same time, he made another inflammatory post.
“Come on now! Who didn’t grope and rape girls in high school? Democrats are such snowflakes!” Behar wrote. He told The News he was being sarcastic.
In separate posts, he called former Education Secretary Betsy DeVos a “dumb b---h” and former Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen “Nazi Barbie.”
While debating policy with a Long Island man, Behar raged on Facebook, “You prove you’re more stupid and more of a p---y with each post!”

Update: Steve rages full on at a BLM protest last year.
A Queens City Council wannabe’s profanity and rage aren’t just confined to the online world.
Steve Behar went off on an expletive-filled tirade against Black Lives Matter demonstrators gathered at a Jamaica, Queens, park last summer.
“You have no f--king business being here!” he yelled at activists gathered in Major Mark Park in June 2020, according to video posted to Twitter.
When a demonstrator interjects, “We all have business being here,” Behar snaps back: “F--k you! You’re pathetic!”
Video shows him ranting — with his face mask on his forehead — in spite of protests from a man who noted there were children present.
“You co-opted a Black Lives Matter protest for your own agenda!” Behar fumed while pumping his fist. “You should be ashamed!”
Asked by a demonstrator why Behar was there, he yelled: “I’m here to show my little niece and nephew that Black Lives Matter!”
The demonstration was one of many across the city after Black Minnesota man George Floyd was killed by a white police officer in May 2020.
Out of about 100 demonstrators at the park that day, some were protesting local electeds for taking campaign cash from police unions, according to attendee Ramy Noaman, who shot the video.
