Fundamentalist Heroes: Sean Hannity

Sean Hannity is one of the worst kinds of fundamentalist talk show hosts. He claims to be fair and balanced yet he blatantly shows his far right wing colors. He continuously spouts comments that can only be found acceptable by someone as far to the right as he is. He always reports and speaks from a horribly biased view of the world. He has no problems discriminating against others who don't believe as he does. He does not have a problem telling people they are ridiculous or stupid, but then follows with how others shouldn't insult him because its childish. If he could once take his own medicine, I think he would pass out. Maybe one day he will understand that news is supposed to be non-biased and based on fact and provable statements, and he can have a conversation or debate with out belittling his guest or trying to make his co-host look like an idiot.

Can we pray for the re-election of George Bush?
Sean Hannity

Sure you can. But when you ask that question, you can't pretend you have no bias towards the right wing republicans.

Governor, why wouldn't anyone want to say the Pledge of Allegiance, unless they detested their own country or were ignorant of its greatness?
Sean Hannity

Or maybe they don't believe in god. Or maybe they actually believe in the bible which says to take no oaths. Or may be they feel its just a bunch of words and they don't have to prove anything.

Is it that you hate this president or that you hate America?
Sean Hannity

Sometimes people actually disagree with the president, country, and laws. Thats okay, its part of being in democratic america.

It doesn't say anywhere in the Constitution this idea of the separation of church and state.
Sean Hannity

As most fundamentalists, they don't understand our countries history. Jefferson stated this in regards to the first Amendment in a letter stating that this is what the first amendment does. If he read that letter himself, he would have known that.

“There's a lot of massacres going on in the world. As you know, 37,000 Kurds in Turkey, over a million people in Sudan. We have hundreds of thousands in Rwanda and Burundi. I mean, where do we stop?”

This is about the US actually using our troops to stop suffering instead of sending them to die pointlessly in a country like Iraq.

“Soldiers are literally fighting for their lives and you don't have enough respect for them to take your protest somewhere else... You have no respect for those guys that are trying to heal in that hospital... Why don't you take your protest and your free speech rights and stop sticking it in the face of people that are (sic) suffered enough. Why don't you take it elsewhere?”

For some reason, even though our troops fight to preserve our freedom to protest, protesting is disrespectful towards them. Right, nice perspective on freedom Sean!

“This is all the perspective you need!”

Oh yes, the fair and balanced channel is all we need. Full of yourself much?

“So the mayor of New Orleans would have used his own buses had the people had been white?”

Shawn routinely shows his ignorance regarding race relations and the entire Katrina situation.

“I've never seen any medium get more attention than liberal talk radio with absolutely no benefit. There's been more written about liberal talk radio than I've had in my entire career, and I began in 1987.”

Rush Limbaugh, Anne Coulter, Michael Savage, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Dr. Laura, and the entire cast of Fox News. How is it possible that he still believes in this crazy left wing conspiracy, that all media is controlled by the "leftists"? Doesn't he know that the largest media mogul in the world own his radio and tv station?

“Under Clinton, the New York Times called surveillance a necessity. Under the Echelon program, there was eavesdropping surveillance in the Clinton years, under Reagan, even under Carter and under the first President Bush.”

Yes, but they all required warrents, and it always worked. Bush Jr. ensured that the government can spy on us domestically with no reason and with no warrent. Sure, thats exactly the same you pompous prick!

“You're entitled to your opinion. I frankly don't really care what you have to say. It has very little impact on my life.”

Yes we know, only faith in an invisible diety impacts your life. So glad you are willing to open discussion with others, it shows your intelligence level.

“Let me be straight with you - I like George Bush. I think he's a man of principle, a man of faith. I think he's got a backbone of steel and he's a real, genuine, big-time leader ... He's a consequential figure for his time. We don't see it right now.”

Huh? Absolutely nothing in that statement indicates that Bush has done a good job leading the country or that he is a good leader and makes the right decisions. So Seah Hannity really likes Bush for the same reason that the other lemmings do, because he is a man of faith. Of course, not very good faith considering the vast amount of scandals he has been involved in.

“I say these things every day. Liberal critics don't hear me say it.”

No, we hear you, we just wish we didn't.

This is typical liberal drivel blog posts. They contain nothing of substance.

First, the blogger is attacking Sean Hannity for calling people "stupid", which is a lie, Sean Hannity is really the only person to point out the truth of things, and then the blogger proceeds to call Sean Hannity worse than what he's complaining about.

If you're going to write a blog, at least be factual and throw in some substance instead of baiting people to come here and read your ignorant, factless opinion.

Typical liberal who has to moderate comments because he can't take free speech. No wonder you're voting for a socialist pig. You're one yourself!

I'm copying your post and making it a part of my blog which points out stupid bloggers for Obama.

Hmm, I think quotes are fairly factual. But thanks for showing up who the real ignoramus is Michelle! Follow the links to the quotes, they are dead on! But thanks for playing and showing how much the far right denies reality in the face of evidence!

Second, anonymous, actually, I moderate comments because someone keeps using the comments section to advertise! So STFU when you don't know what the hell you are talking about!

And please, copy my blog in. And while you are at it, why don't you let everyone know that you were to much of a coward to leave your blog or your name here so I can respond to you. A little panty waist coward who is afraid to use his real name while blasting me!

If you want to email me, I'll give you my real name. Good on Michelle for at least OWNING her comments! Coward!
