“Regular Guy” Hannity Smears Public School Students – Again

Reported by Ellen - June 6, 2009 -

Multimillionaire Sean Hannity likes to present himself as a “regular guy” standing up against elitism. But once again he showed his true colors last night (6/5/09) when he smeared the overwhelming majority of Americans who happen to attend or have attended public schools. This is the second time in less than a month that Hannity has sneered at public school students. But later, in the same segment, Hannity got on his hypocritical high horse in order to wax Hanctimoniously about his concern for those in lower economic brackets - when it was politically expedient, of course. With video.

The discussion in the video below was about the May unemployment figures which, according to the unbalanced panel of Mike Huckabee and Fox Business' Sandra Smith, seemed to prove that Obama's stimulus plan is not working. “I'm not seeing any saved jobs, and I certainly haven't seen any created jobs,” Huckabee said with a big ol' smile, like it was the best news he'd heard since Arlen Specter became a Democrat.

“(The Obama administration was) actually bragging,” Hannity said scornfully. “They said, 'Well, we created 150,000 new jobs.' I was like 'Where did you go to school? (he hit the table repeatedly.) You must have been to a government school.'”

Neither of the guests seemed to care that Hannity had just insulted the approximately 90% of Americans who attend or have attended public school.

Later, however, Hannity was suddenly a vision of concern for the little guy again, when it just happened to fit his Obama-bashing agenda. “This is really serious,” Hannity said, about the state of our economy. “I'm not worried about where we are. We all have safe jobs, we're doing well.” In his Hanctimonious voice, he continued, “I'm worried about the person that did the right thing in this country, that saved their money for their kids' college education, saved their money for their retirement.”

Sure he is... when he's not insulting them.

If you, like me, are a proud public school grad who doesn't appreciate being smeared by Mr. Multimillionaire just because you didn't go to private school, you can contact the show at hannity@foxnews.com.
