Hannity Treats Colonel Klink Like He’s A Real Nazi

Reported by Ellen - February 2, 2006

In what may be the most hilarious and novel Democrat-bashing yet, Sean Hannity attacked Colleen Rowley, 9/11 whistleblower now running as a Democrat for Congress in Minnesota, for “using the Nazi reference” when comparing her opponent to Colonel Klink, the character from the old TV show, Hogan’s Heroes.

As “Whistleblower Caught! And “Another NAZI Mistake” appeared on the screen, Hannity explained that Rowley’s website had used a photograph that superimposed the face of her opponent on “Nazi Soldier” Colonel Klink from Hogan’s Heroes. Hannity said that her opponent, a Marine Corps veteran “was understandably outraged.” Hannity said that Rowley has apologized. Then, in a reproving voice added, “Once again, another politician gets burned for making a Nazi reference. When will they ever, ever learn?”

Apparently, the only ones allowed to make a Nazi reference are conservatives. Hannity showed no such concern when Newt Gingrich likened the president of Iran to a Nazi the week before. Hannity even referred to Gingrich’s comments earlier in last night’s show during a discussion with Reza Pahlavi, the son of the late shah. “Newt Gingrich says that the new Iranian president is the modern day version of Adolf Hitler. We’ve heard his comments denying that the Holocaust existed and he wants to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. Do you agree with that assessment?”

And speaking of being called a Nazi, Ann Coulter told Bill O’Reilly that websites such as Media Matters (and probably ours, too, in her mind) are "little Nazi block watchers," stating: "They tattle on their parents, turn them in to the Nazis." I don't remember hearing anyone on FOX News objecting to that.

Nor have I ever heard Hannity condemn the disgustingly shameless campaign smear of war veteran and amputee Max Cleland by Saxby Chambliss who superimposed Cleland with Osama bin Laden because Cleland didn’t support the Iraq war.
