Candace Cameron Bure is definitely having first-day jitters.

The Full House alum starts her run as co-host of The View this morning, but she took to Facebook Monday night to ask her fans to show her some support and give her encouragement. But Bure isn't worried about her fans or what the show will bring her; she's nervous about what the "liberals" will say of her.

"Please encourage me if you watch the show. Please tag The View on your social media outlets if you have anything kind to say about me or my viewpoint," she wrote. "The majority of the feedback I get from The View audience is from liberals (whom I love) but are mean, hateful and downright nasty toward me. It's incredibly disheartening to read."

While the new co-host, who will "only be on one segment" before taking on a more permanent role, appreciates the nice comments from the show's fans, she claimed that most people who have kind things to say don't say them often enough.

"And while I know I have the support of many, most of those supporters don't vocalize it on social media," she added. "So all I read and The View hears are the negative and discouraging comments I'm tagged to that call me a vile, discussing, worthless and bigoted human being."

She implored her friends and followers on Facebook to "speak up" if they agree with her opinions and viewpoints on the show. "Don't do what many often do on voting day...not show up," she ended her post. "Be a voice—if not for me, but for a show like this so they can hear more than one point of View! If we don't speak up, they'll never know."

Bure, who guest hosted the show throughout its 18th season, is joining returning hosts Raven-Symoné, Whoopi Goldberg and Michelle Collins. Paula Faris of ABC News and Joy Behar are also set to join the table this season. Behar previously hosted the women-led talk show for the first 16 seasons.

"I am honored to be a new addition to such a strong group of bright and opinionated women, and I look forward to sharing this exciting journey with viewers new and old," Bure said in a statement upon the news of her casting.

She will also be starring in the Netflix reboot of Full House called Fuller House.
