Sean Hannity has found another excuse to hate monger about his uber black boogeyman, Louis Farrakhan. This time, Hannity feigned an interest in Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel's initiative to address a horrific epidemic of violence in the inner city. But Hannity's only real interest in the topic was in Emanuel's decision to allow “racist and anti-Semitic” Farrakhan to play a role in some kind of all-hands-on-deck approach - which Hannity was so obsessed with, you'd think Farrakhan was masterminding the whole thing. I'm not here to defend Farrakhan in any way. But when you consider Hannity's obsession with Farrakhan, his own association with bigots, his promotion of racially-tinged attacks on President Obama the only fact really proven in the discussion was that Hannity's race baiting is alive, well and still completely acceptable on Fox News.
Hannity began the segment, which aired last Thursday (7/26/12), by “asking,” “Why would the mayor want any help from this man when it comes to anything? Now this is a man who has made more racist and anti-Semitic comments than anyone I can think of. But apparently Deadfish (Hannity’s pet name for Emanuel), well, he disagrees with me.”
It’s funny how Hannity is so disturbed by Farrakhan’s racism yet has no problem when his pal Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson says things like, “Most blacks” in Tennessee are “so racist.” And the fact that Peterson “thanks God for slavery” has not prevented Hannity from endorsing Peterson’s charity and sitting on its advisory board.
The designated African American black-attacker for the segment was conservative Erik Rush. He wasted no time before he went after the usual Fox News scapegoat, saying that problems in Chicago are “a byproduct of liberal policies.”
For once, Hannity forwent attacking liberals – so eager was he to attack Farrakhan. Hannity ignored what Rush said in order to play some inflammatory recording of Farrakhan.
The other guest, Alexis McGill Johnson tried to talk about the crisis in black America. But Hannity cut her off in favor of focusing on Farrakhan: “We know there's a crisis, is that the right man to go to? ...Is that the guy that belongs helping? …Is he an anti-Semite? Is he or is he not?”
Rush got with the program. “I can't help but wonder if Rahm Emanuel would have welcomed the Ku Klux Klan in.” Before he repeated, “This kind of social and economic squalor is directly traceable” to liberal policies.
Hannity said, “That's what's causing black on black violence?” The note of hope in his voice was unmistakeable.
This is your quote: “I am not âpro-gayâ. I do not want everybody to be gay. I accept people for who they are, not what they do in their bedroom.”
Translation, you claim to accept gay people for who they are, except for doing the very thing that defines them as gay. What other examples are there besides sex that differentiates gays from straight people?
No matter how hard you try and spin it, the words you spouted DO make you a homophobe. Case closed. I win, you lose, deal with it loser. Buh-byeee.
unreasoning fear of or antipathy toward homosexuals and homosexuality.
If you think I fit this definition. Let me hear your arguments.
Like it or not, you really do fit the mold of a homophobe. Do get over yourself, dopey.
Also, I am not “pro-gay”. I do not want everybody to be gay. I accept people for who they are, not what they do in their bedroom.
You can think what you want, but I do not buy cable. You should try getting rid of yours. Too much tv rots the brain. Especially watching shows you you don’t like. Watcha think?
1. My brother is gay and I love him.
2. I have gay friends, and yes I even let them into my home.
3. It is ironic you use the “homophobe” smear tactic on a thread involving Louis Farrakhan who IS a homophobe.
4. I do not watch Fox News as I do not pay for cable.
I will say this: I know Fox News is successful and that has people here angry. So angry they claim to watch shows they hate 24 hours a day. It is fun to come here sometimes to see what has their panties all bunched up.

they ain’t, but they are……go figure.
