In case you didn’t think there was anything more despicable than Sean Hannity’s deliberate and dangerous ratcheting up of tensions between lawbreaking Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the U.S. government, then watch Hannity whine about being a victim of those meanies calling him out over it at MSNBC.
As we've been reporting for almost two weeks, Hannity has all but stated outright that he hopes Bundy and his militia-type supporters start an armed conflict with the government. Hannity has made such statements to the Bundy family on the air as:
You talked about a range war with the federal government. There’s a lot of people out there - now that they’re taking your cattle - that are fearful that this is another Waco situation. Ruby Ridge has come up in some articles. What do you mean “range war?” How far are you willing to take this? (4/9/14)
I would assume as Cliven’s son, you want to protect your Dad. What are your plans if in fact (federal agents) come late in the night? …Do you worry that in fact they may kill either your Dad or somebody in your family? (4/15/14)
(T)hey may want to make an example out of you. I would hate to see that happen. If in fact they try to stage an Elian Gonzalez-style raid… what’s gonna happen? …Are you worried about what the federal government’s capable of doing from this point forward? (4/16/14)
FoxNews.com has been just as inflammatory, with headlines such as, "Why Cliven Bundy should continue his fight, no matter what" and "Bundy Family ready for fight until the end."
Not surprisingly, Hannity and Fox have been heavily criticized for this reckless and irresponsible behavior. Instead of taking it like a grownup, Hannity childishly smeared his critics – while pretending to play the grownup.
As Hannity stood next to a huge graphic reading, “LEFT-WING LUNACY,” Hannity said:
I’ve had enough of MSNBC News. Over the past couple of weeks, they’ve spent countless segments attacking little ol’ me.
Here’s just one example of left-wing loudmouth – kind of a buffoon, Ed Schultz criticizing this show’s coverage of which I’m proud of – of the Bundy ranch standoff with the feds.
Hannity then played a clip of Schultz saying, “Fox News and Sean Hannity should be ashamed of their coverage of this lawbreaker and this lawbreaking Nevada rancher and his family. I think Sean Hannity is cheerleading for armed conflict with the federal government. Hannity and Fox News are playing with fire."
Schultz is 100% right. In fact, Hannity has a long history of lusting for other people’s blood to spill. He was a cheerleader for the Iraq war, wants a war against Iran, was sickeningly enthusiastic about the execution of Stanley Tookie Williams and makes no bones that he considers torture patriotic. And now this.
“Proud of his coverage” Hannity responded by whitewashing its deliberately provocative nature.
The federal government, their lack of proportionality and sense over a bill. Are they going to send 200 armed agents to everybody’s house? Snipers to everybody’s else? Really?
Well, we’re not ashamed of our coverage. We’re actually proud of our coverage.
Now, there’s not one thing that Ed Schultz said was true. But guess what? If I was a network exec over at NBC News? I might be ashamed of having this man work for me.
Hannity then launched a series of clips solely designed to make Schultz – and then Al Sharpton look bad.
It’s Hannity’s modus operandi, by the way, when he can't take the heat of his own fire. Instead of taking his lumps like a man, Hannity thinks that smearing someone else will make us forget what a bully he is.
And speaking of his cowardice… tomorrow is the 5th year anniversary of Hannity’s promise to undergo waterboarding for charity. Hannity may want to forget that pledge but we will not. The second video below is a video (from our friends at Crooks and Liars) showing Hannity’s promise to undergo waterboarding - plus Keith Olbermann’s offer to add $1,000 to charity for every second Hannity tolerates the process - on April 22, 2009.
We at Fux Nuze are paid handsomely to report the facts as Roger Ailes sez they are!
@joe Marsh…..Oh, Klannity is backed up alright. It’s been a while since his sham Freedom Concert tours, who knows what he was keeping secret on the road. And as far as milking this til it dies, I think it already has past its due date. No one is really talking about Bundy anymore except for Faux, Klannity and some of his ilk on talk radio and political comedians poking fun at them. I don’t know how much longer Klannity can drag this out, this story may not have Benghazi legs.
He’s always been a sensitive soul dating back to his early years in radio. He gets upset when people criticize him. It would bother him for days. Today, he claims he’s no longer thin-skinned. He’s lying.
Since Hannocchio is in the mood of calling out people’s past, the Stop Hannity Express will call out this clown’s past as well.
Hannocchio Admits to Cursing Out Romney Officials
Nixon trainee Ailes must be real proud of his host cursing out presidential candidate’s staffers.
Hannocchio’s Repulsive Anti-Gay Remarks (audio)
Gay employees at this fraudulent “news” outlet must be proud of their colleague.
Who can forget the audio of Hannocchio calling a Rep. Jim Moran (D-VA) an #$%hole? Moran remembers it very well. Nice language for a heretic..ahem..christian.
Who can forget his former buddy, Hal the neo Nazi? He admitted that this Long Island Lolito held the same racist views has him. The producers of Hannocchio’s latest “faith” film-a cameo appearance-must be proud of him.
Based on his numerous, scandalous skeletons in the closet, this aging media hack has no business calling out other people.
If the suits were smart they would let Hannocchio’s contract expire, and hire a younger host to replace him. He’s past his prime. A majority of his viewers are past the 25-54 demographic. Not good for advertisers.
Antoinette and others didn’t agree with me, instead offering the theory that this is only Hannocchio’s desperate attempt to generate publicity for himself.
Okay… each to our own theories. I stand by mine: Hannity gets his rocks off by thinking of bullets flying, blood spilling and 20-megaton air bursts!
Anyway, interesting to hear him directly attack Schultz lately (heard him playing his heavily doctored audio clip on the radio Monday). For a long time, Slanthead would never mention Schultz by name. Instead, it would be inane questions such as: “Does Tom Brokaw, Brian Williams… do they know what others are doing at NBC News?”
