Sean Hannity hates politicizing tragedy but why pass up a chance to use the Paris terror attacks to blow the “Obama’s a secret Muslim” dog whistle?
During a discussion with one of Fox News’ most virulent Obama haters, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, Hannity “just asked” about President Obama’s plan to accept Middle East refugees, “Why would he gamble with the lives of the American people and run that risk?”
Peters picked right up on the bigoted innuendo. First, he said Obama wants “to socially engineer a new America, to change the face of America” with the refugees.
Later, Peters blew the dog whistle again.
PETERS: I'm waiting for this president to call Eric Holder out of retirement to lead a new movement, “Jihadi Lives Matter.” This guy clearly doesn't get the fact that we're not the problem. Islamic State, al Qaeda, the jihadis, Islamic fundamentalists, that is the problem. Not Paris, not the French, not the Germans, not America.
Hannity closed the segment by saying, “I appreciate your insight” to Peters.
Of course he would.

This clown’s family may have lived in Ireland, but his original roots landed somewhere else.
Maybe that quack Peters should investigate it.
At least THEN they’ll have something to chat about!
