Tyrant Sean Hannity Still Trying To Bully Yale University. He Has Some Orders For The State Department, Too

Reported by Ellen - March 16, 2006

Sean Hannity kept up his tirade against Yale University last night. Apparently, they haven’t gotten the message that they’re supposed to clear their academic admissions with Hannity first. But now that Hannity has gotten wind of Yale having accepted someone unacceptable to him – a former Taliban spokesperson named Ramatullah Hashemi – Hannity keeps demanding that Yale throw him out.

There was nothing new in last night’s (3/15/06) Hannity & Colmes bully session other than the fact that this time they dredged up some old footage of Hashemi saying something in March, 2001. I’ll have to take Hannity’s word for it that Hashemi was saying something positive about the Taliban. With his thick accent, I found it very difficult to understand anything he said.

Perhaps on account of Yale’s obdurateness, “fair and balanced” FOX News decided they needed two guests with the same opinion (guess which side). Evidently, when Sean Hannity issues marching orders, there’s not much room for debate.

That left Alan Colmes as the lone voice on the other side. Colmes made the point that the “new” speech by Hashemi was made six months prior to 9/11 and that Hashemi has since changed his stance. Colmes also pointed out that it was the State Department that granted Hashemi his visa and that maybe it’s a good thing for Yale to show someone like Hashemi what democracy is all about.

Hannity said, “In one sense, Alan’s right. The State Department should not let him in here. But nor should Yale have accepted him.” Then, full of phony-baloney Hanctimony over the evils of the Taliban (when anyone who knows Hannity knows that what he really cared about is bashing Yale), Hannity issued his orders one more time: “Where are the liberal elites on college campuses? Where are the Yale alumni? Where are people speaking out against this guy? He – needs – to- be- sent – back.”

I do so wish Yale would make some kind of public statement in response and let Hannity know they are not going to be dictated to by the likes of him.
