Hannity Still Using Rev. Wright To Suggest Obama Is A Racist
Reported by Ellen - March 17, 2011 -
Just a few minutes after Sean Hannity demanded that Democrat Anthony Weiner “man up” to the fact that George W. Bush is no longer president, Hannity revealed he's still stuck on the 2008 election, especially the racial component. Never mind that Rev. Jeremiah Wright has absolutely nothing to do with Barack Obama's presidency, to Hannity, Obama's once and past association with Wright shows a radical (read, black racist) mindset that Hannity obviously feels must not be forgotten. Of course, if Hannity wants to talk about racist associations, I feel a special obligation to bring up his past association with white supremacist Hal Turner (currently in jail for threatening three federal judges) and Hannity's more recent – and ongoing – association with Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson. I guess it takes one to suspect one, eh?
During the “Great American Panel” segment last night (3/16/11), Hannity played a segment of Wright and, as a graphic on the screen read, “WRIGHT HATE SPEECH,” Hannity announced, “I'm going to lay a foundation here.”
Anyone with the slightest familiarity with Hannity and his penchant for sniffing out black racism knew just where he was going. But first, Hannity “laid the foundation” of tying Obama to Wright: “20 years, he (Obama) sat in his church... I don't think he (Obama) told the American people the truth.” Then came the sly suggestion of black racism - with extra points for connecting it to socialism: “...Here's the thing: Rev. Wright is basically saying here, 'Hey, Christianity, Black Liberation Theology is socialism, it's like Marxist... I think (Obama) is far more in sync with Rev. Wright's radical, black liberation theology views than he lets on.”
I think we can count on Rev. Wright making regular appearances, at least in name, on the Hannity show as the 2012 campaign kicks into gear.
