Yesterday, the great nephew of 88 year-old Delbert Benton appeared on Fox & Friends and asked people to stop saying that the horrific murder of his uncle was about race. According to Fox’s own reporting, the motive was robbery. But Sean Hannity and his pal, the noted racist Mark Fuhrman, know better! So who cares what the victim's family wants?
Yesterday morning, Allen Hills, Benton’s great nephew, visited Fox & Friends to discuss the killing (second video below). Co-host Anna Kooiman promoted the fave Fox News memes about African Americans as she asked, “Do you think this comes down to race? Do you think it’s the thug lifestyle? Do you think it’s the deterioration of the family? …What’s to blame for this?”
Hills answered, “You know, at the risk of sounding like a terrible person, it all comes down to parents. …If I could say this to everybody, stop making this about race. This isn’t about race. This is about two punk kids that had no parents, no family, no morals, no nothing. This has nothing to do with the color of their skin.”
The interview abruptly ended.
Maybe that’s because Fox News knows better. And who at Fox would know better than Master Baiter of Race, Sean Hannity and one of America’s most famous bigots (and Fox News contributor), Mark Fuhrman? Hannity’s so-called evidence was that the man was killed and not just robbed. Apparently, only racial hate would cause such a thing to happen and not, as the police theorized, the behavior of the victim.
Hannity began last night's discussion by saying, “First question: the police chief is saying, definitively, race is not a factor. Hang on a second. How does he know that so early? If two, young, strong kids want to rob an (88) year-old man, they can rob him and not kill him.”
The other guest, African American and former homicide detective, Rod Wheeler said, “Race could have been a contributing factor, Sean, and it’s not unusual to have multiple variables.”
But while Hannity agreed the victim was picked because of his age, “They didn’t have to kill him.” Therefore, Sherlock Hannity deduced, the “police were wrong to say this.”
Fuhrman came up with his own, novel reason to conclude the attack was racial: an assumption that nobody in the perpetrators’ community was white. Fuhrman agreed that robbery was “the initial incentive for the contact and the beating.” But, calling the police chief “condescending,” Fuhrman continued:
But, you know, you have to look at this. These two teens picked him, not only because he was old but because he was white. There was no chance that he was related to anybody in their community at all that they knew. I mean, race is a factor. And I agree with Rod. It’s secondary but it is a factor.
Apparently, in Fuhrman's world, there's no such thing as interracial marriage or bi-racial children or multi-ethnic communities.
That was too far for Wheeler, apparently. He said race may have been a factor “but we don’t know that for sure.” He added, “We have to give the police department the benefit of the doubt, that they have done a pretty good investigation.”
So Hannity brought it back to another black-on-white crime Fox keeps trying to make about race: “What about Chris Lane? What about this particular case? I mean, you kill somebody because you’re bored?”
His street thug mentality continued when he was a volunteer at KCSB radio at Santa Barbara. His hot temper scared staffers. A few feared for their safety. This New York thug was fired from the station due to anti-gay discrimination, a violation of the station’s policy. He spins this story by telling his sheep he was fired for his conservative views. That’s a bold face lie and he knows it.
Hugh’s bully, flop house son is not in a position to call out other people’s crimes.
The Stop Hannity Express reminds the masses of this aging hack’s past friendships with convicted thugs, including Neo Nazi Turner, businessman turn inmate Robert Allen Stanford, disgraced former top cop Bernard Kerik, among other buddies who had run-ins with the law.
Hannocchio is a racial profiteer. A man who makes a living off of hatred like he did before he became a household name.
He probably takes after his father.
NOTE TO HANNITY
You are a bitter man with a bitter life. Always wanting people to like your sorry bog azz.
