It’s bad enough that Sean Vannity is a plagiarist. But, even worse, the blowhard host of the dumbed-down daily Rush Limbaugh 3-hour re-run (Rush’s version is great, it’s the poor imitation that is a waste of time) is a willing enabler of Weird Al Sharpton.
Yup, Sean Hannity–ever the victim of his own bloated conceit–decided to honor and enable Al Sharpton by appearing at Sharpton’s National Action Network confab, Friday. It is billed as a “debate.” But so what? A debate legitimizing a scumbag is a debate the scumbag has won even before the debate began.
Why did Hannity do it? Why couldn’t his own big fat ego resist the opportunity to further legitimize Al Sharpton? Because Sean Hannity’s ego is far bigger than his conscience (assuming he has one, and that’s quite an assumption).
If Hannity truly believed his own radio rants that rehashed Al Sharpton’s various transgressions (most of which he read word-for-word off of this site); if Hannity truly thinks it’s wrong that Al Sharpton is responsible for the arson deaths of at least 7 employees of Freddy’s Fashion Mart and the stabbing murder of Yankel Rosenbaum in Crown Heights; if Sean Hannity is truly disgusted by Al Sharpton’s two racist, anti-Semitic riots in Harlem and Crown Heights; if Sean Hannity is truly upset by the way Al Sharpton helped propagate the Tawana Brawley lies and ruined a prosecutor’s life and career, THEN WHY DID SEAN HANNITY JOIN AL SHARPTON ON THE DAIS AT AL SHARPTON’S CONVENTION?
Because Sean Hannity really isn’t upset by any of these things. He’s simply a phony. A phony who has no qualms about appearing side-by-side with Al Sharpton.
And Vannity is a hypocrite, too. During the whole Don Imus inferno, Hannity ripped those who regularly appeared on Imus’ show. But Don Imus said far less, never incited multiple murders, and apologized. Al Sharpton has never apologized. But Sean Hannity appeared at Sharpton’s event, anyway.
Next time you hear Sean Hannity rant against Al Sharpton, remember how he nauseatingly–and without hesitation–hangs with Sharpton whenever Sharpton asks. I wonder how it feels to be the star of Al Sharpton’s latest Minstrel Show. Just ask Vannity, the man who reads and regurgitates a lot of talking points, but quite apparently doesn’t have the principles that go with them.
So, when is Sean Hannity planning on attending David Duke’s convention? . . . (You know–“just to debate.”)
