Sean Hannity may have weaseled out of being “dunked” via waterboarding but that doesn’t mean he’s afraid to inflame political tensions from his armchair at Fox News HQ. So last night, Hannity stood up for Steven Crowder and his Breitbart band of anti-union activists at the Michigan “right to work” protests by calling in Ann Coulter for some incendiary rhetoric about liberals.
The “breaking news” alert on the screen let you know (in case you had a doubt) this was no “fair and balanced” look at the “right to work” legislation and ensuing union protests in Michigan: “RIGHT TO WORK LAW WILL STOP UNIONS FROM FORCING MEMBERS TO PAY DUES.”
“I live in Los Angeles/NYC but vote in Florida and Connecticut” Coulter wasted no time getting to the flame throwing. Calling Michigan a “dying state” that was once “one of the most beautiful states in the union,” she blamed its demise on “mob violence” and “capitulating to the mob.” By that, she meant Democrats and unions. “Michigan has become a state like Cuba,” she pronounced.
But Hannity’s interest was not Michigan, its labor laws nor economy. No, he wanted to demonize the left – while playing the victim. “Why is it always the left with the violence?” he "asked." From there he launched his “double standard in the media” whine. Because poor Hannity, with his syndicated radio show, his own prime-time television show and his $100 million contract (just for the radio show, alone) always feels so disenfranchised.
Coulter said, “It’s in their nature… It all goes back to the left’s birth in the French Revolution. And they are a mob movement.”
Or, as the Founding Fathers might have called it, “democracy.” But maybe that’s a concept a serial voter-fraudster like Coulter doesn't go for.
Coulter continued, “This is the left in America and unfortunately most of Michigan has become that way which is why most Michiganders you meet, you meet after they leave the state.” She said that if Michigan can be saved it will be because of Republicans and Governor Rick Snyder.
Again, Arm Chair General Hannity revealed that his real concern for Michigan was in using it as a weapon against his political opponents. He said, “Tie this to Obama… Is Michigan a preview of coming attractions for America because of Democratic policies?”
Naturally, Coulter said she thought so. The orangey/yellow-haired patriot said, “Yeah, we have a series of Greeces around the country. The one piece of good news is, probably the first state to go bankrupt is California. California is so left-wing they could never elect a Republican governor (well, except for the last one and three out of the last five). Fortunately, California will go first and probably not Michigan.”
Then maybe our wandering voter can move to an actual red state since she thinks Republican leadership is so swell.
I’d be the first to chuckle were I to hear someone call a toy poodle that name but it’s quite different to choose that name for yourself in order to post on a thread on a supposedly violent event. After being challenged you whined that this was the name you’d given to a toy poodle. Did you want to make us feel foolish for not knowing the name of your toy poodle? If that was it, you were being pretty silly IMO
The fact that Kevin has spent a lot of time with you on other threads tells me that you must be very young and that he felt it was worth spending that time in hope of actually connecting. He has a penchant for doing that and his efforts have taught me an awful lot about many things. You might want to try actually reading his posts.
Allow us to sweep the floor with Handout Hannocchio.
Hannocchio belongs to a union, American Federation of Radio and Television Artists (AFTRA). That box office bomb he was in featured actors belonging to Screen Actors Guild, Directors Guild of America, and other unions. If this mediocre shock jock really hated unions, why would he work with them in the first place? Maybe the masses should write letters to the editor asking the same question.
Let us add the icing to the cake. Hannocchio’s union urges action against Michigan.
NOTE TO ANNIE
Your boyfriend Hannity is a hypocrite.
Then went on Hannity and said “Yeah, I showed up, went out of my way to pick a fight, now I’m pressing charges if I don’t get a rematch!”
Such a nice confession.
Oh, wait- Fox News didn’t get mad about it, so he can’t either.
And it’s just so interesting that, just a couple of months ago, the FoxNoise folks were decrying all the “takers” yet they fully support “right-to-work” laws in which people who DON’T belong to unions get ALL the same benefits as those who do.
There are so many “takers” in this country. People who complain about having to pay a few dollars per paycheck but want the unions to fight for “no layoff clauses” and “wage increases” (and then, of course, blame the unions when the companies screw over the workers).
(and don’t say he didn’t deserve it, they all do)
