Apparently, Sean Hannity thinks he’s the campaign-donor police for President Obama. We’re still hearing shrieks on the show that Obama should return the campaign donation from Bill Maher (for having spoken misogynistically about Sarah Palin). Now, Hannity is demanding Obama return Spike Lee’s money for having tweeted to his thousands of followers what he thought was the address of Trayvon-shooter George Zimmerman.
I agree what Spike Lee did was wrong. Very wrong. But he has apologized to the family whose address he tweeted and he has compensated them to their satisfaction. He has also since tweeted, “I Deeply Apologize To The McClain Family For Retweeting Their Address. It Was A Mistake.Please Leave The McClain’s In Peace. Justice In Court.” Furthermore, the McClain family – the ones who were wronged – seem to have fully forgiven him. After a personal phone call from Lee, the Washington Post reported:
“He was really kind,” Elaine McClain said. “And when he called us, you could just tell he really felt bad about it. And it was just a slip, and I just know that he really, really has been concerned.”
But Hannity has shown no such charity. Instead, he’s playing the victim by demanding that President Obama return Lee’s donation.
It didn’t work with Maher, I see no reason why it will or should work with Lee.
But speaking of questionable relationships, doesn't Hannity owe an explanation as to why he continues to sit on the advisory board of a charity run by the slavery-loving, woman-hating Jesse Lee Peterson?
A few quotes from Peterson, via the above links:
“I’ve often said that, ‘Thank God for slavery,’ because, you know, had not, then the blacks over here would have been stuck in Africa… The ride over (in a slave ship) was pretty tough but you know, it’s like riding on a crowded airplane when you’re not in First Class. It’s a tough ride. But you’re happy when you get to your desitination.”
“Women’s rights are “a trick from Satan.”
“One of the greatest mistakes that America made was to allow women the opportunity to vote.”
“(N)ot all, but most (women) turned into little whores.”
Oh, and Peterson had a few choice words about the Trayvon Martin case, too:
"I’ve said for the last 22 years that most black Americans are brainwashed. The recent actions of these black leaders and their followers are not about justice—it’s about getting even with whites and gaining political power. This is black hatred of white people and a result of more than fifty years of brainwashing by racist civil-rights leaders."
So if President Obama should return Spike Lee’s money, should Hannity resign from the advisory board of Lee’s charity?
I’ll have more on this segment coming up in another post.
who has already decided that zimmermans account and the polices account is true and anybody who disagrees with hannity’s belief of the matter is obviously believing a lie.
the point of these shows is to out-do any other opinion with the general opinion of fox news. anybody who shows up is going to be depicted as wrong from the start because these guys view news as a SPORT and not as a REPORT. it is a game of hockey where fox news goal is to win and they will brawl if they have to and use all dirty tricks for the other side to lose. Fox news makes news into a sport.
the media is disputing what happened in the treyvon case. The FACT is, that a 17 year old kid is DEAD, and some older guy (i honestly don’t know how old he is) killed this kid, and he continues to live as if it never happened. and the cops seem to have essentially told him to “fa’get about it” and that’s that.
but treyvon is DEAD and cannot defend himself, and they are siding with zimmerman’s account, who is still alive and well with no injuries. (if martin beat him so violently and zimmerman felt threatened, then where are the hospital records that conclude zimmerman was badly injured?)
plus i would think that somebody who had killed somebody might feel some remorse. I mean I would feel horrible if i ended somebody’s life, even if i felt threatened by them…even if they tried to kill me. zimmerman felt no remorse. kill or be killed is the only situation i would use deadly force…
if i had a gun. which I do not. and trevon did NOT have a gun. but was killed by a gun. here is a fact….humans want to stay alive and they will FIGHT to stay alive if they have to. if somebody pulls a gun on me and i feel i might be shot dead, of course, i’m going to try all i can to defend myself; to keep myself from being shot dead.
So if there was a fight, it had to be because zimmerman had the bigger guns. you know the old saying, “don’t bring a bag of skittles to a gun fight.”
Just saying treyvon MAY have had a chance to fight back, and if he did, there is no evidence that he was in any way successful in his attempt to protect what he held most sacred…his life. and zimmerman shot him.
and zimmerman walks free and may or may not regret that. but he should may or may not regret that behind bars.
Treyvon is innocent!!!!! yet they make him the guilty one and they try to make zimmerman a saint….
I think it is all because they feel threatened that “liberals” might be using this example to go after the “stand your ground law” (passed in FL and trying to be passed in many other states) that is lobbied by the NRA who buys republicons. CONS CONS CONS.
this is not our country this is not our world. we are the pacifist aggressors instigating decline of human decency and human compassion and they want to destroy that for the good of wealth.
That said, I have no idea whether Spike Lee is a good guy or a bad guy. But the point is that for Hannity to use the Trayvon Martin case to use Spike Lee to attack Obama says far more about Hannity than anyone else, IMO.
Typical troll behavior is to try to distract and derail a thread, often by “just asking” questions that just so happen to denigrate and have nothing to do with the topic at hand.
What? Fox News isn’t talking about her stunt? Gee, I wonder why…
He only apologized and compensated the couple when he was threatened with a lawsuit
Oh,you mean like your Big Poppa Bill O’reilly did with Andrea Makris?
President Obama don’t give a rats’ azz what this thin-skinned, paranoid, third-rate mouthpiece says.
NOTE TO HANNITY
We demand a waterboard for the troops.
And on topic. kkklannity is too stupid to realize that President Obama is just not into him. kkklannity needs to realize that his bromance with Obama isn’t going anywhere. Obama has no interest in him and doesn’t care what he has to say. Good grief, kkklannity needs to get a clue already!
KKKlownnity – demand Mitt Romney rejects and denounces the other sack of sht, your good pal, birfher Donald Trump.
Same for Jerome Corsi.
Demand another of your vicious, gun totting “great ’murkans” Ted Nugent apologize for his vile comments.
I know there are more instances but I’ll be fine with my first example.
Like it is ever going to happen.
It’s only fair.
Oh, and here’s a quick FYI for you:
Earlier this month, Fox News lied about their rapidly declining ratings to advertisers (-17% since March 1st!) to wrangle deals that will last until November 13th. They also haven’t made good on their deals to clean up the rhetoric on certain topics.
They obtained a contract lying about their stability, and they’re failing to deliver on one of the conditions. Why aren’t they setting an example by giving back their money? After all, they’re so hot for everyone else to give back thiers… except for Rush Limbaugh, of course.
Ads are generated by an adserver. Newshounds doesn’t control that.
Secondly,no one cares about Limbaugh,but his followers. He’d be almost gone from any sphere of influence except for his moronic ‘Dittoheads’.
Limbaugh and Maher aren’t equatable. Neither are the two people they were talking about. Red-state morons need to stop throwing up false equivalences to excuse Limbaughs horrendous behavior. The only thing that’s equal about the two,is both of them are dicks.
Now, I get your animosity toward me. If you can’t or won’t debate with respect, you will be banned and without any further warning.
President Obama will gladly return Lee’s donation — right after you follow through on that promise to get waterboarded . . .
You certainly aren’t as cavalier about Limbaugh’s comments. Hypocrite much?
