There has been an internet outage with my service provider for almost the last day (and my private e-mail is still not working), thus my absence.
Today at 9:20 a.m. Pacific/12:20 p.m. Eastern, I will be on “The Adam Carolla Show,” the morning show broadcast on most FM CBS radio stations on the West Coast. Adam and I will be discussing the domestic Islamic terrorist threat, Imam Husham Al-Husainy, and Sean Hannity Vanity’s week-long plagiarism of my work on Al-Husainy. Listen Live.
Also, the mail keeps pouring in–against Vanity and from his conservative base, who’ve left his audience because they don’t buy the act. Here’s a sampling:
My last straw with Sean Vanity was when he would not denounce Judith Regan [DS: who published Vanity's books, but he "forgot" to mention that conflict of interest} over the O.J. book. Mark Fuhrman was on and asked Sean to denounce Judith, and he would not do it.
And then tonight he stuck up for Alan Colmes calling our Marines "cold blooded murderers" over the Haditha incident. Colmes was called out by one of the fathers of those Marines, so he apologized. Sean came to his recuse by saying "We're on the air 4 hours a day, and we make mistakes." Mistakes, my ass, when you deliberately convict before a trial--like, oh, the Duke lacrosse players.
Keep up the great work and don't hold your breath for Sean Vanity to
acknowledge you or the work he deliberately stole from you. Like I tell people I'm conservative, not a Republican.
Sean is phony as a 3 dollar bill.
I couldn't agree more.
As another reader points out, does this mean that Sean Vanity will stop criticizing Joe Biden for plagiarizing a speech from British Labor leader Neil Kinnock?
I wouldn't count on it. Vanity does not mean the absence of Hypocrisy.
Would be nice if Sean Vanity could come up with some new material, but apparently he cannot (not exactly a newsflash to those familiar with him). Another reader writes about last night's show:
Well, I think the thief [Hannity] is going to play this phone tape of Husainy till it wears out or until he has every so called Islam expert on analyzing him . . . but you.
Thought you’d like to know, they had “another Islam expert” on just
now. Nonie Darwish.
When I saw this, my thoughts were: Vanity is doing this to you
intentionally (as in trying to p*ss you off royally).
He asked this lady questions, that he SHOULD have asked YOU. She was such an expert [DS: I beg to differ] . . . but not on this imam. Nonie didn’t even know if he was a Shia and if he is an Iraqi. She even said, she has to assume he is, “’cause this Imam supports Hezbollah.”
[DS: I'm familiar with Nonie Darwish, had dinner with her recently, and she is very clueless on these particular things. She is an Arab and a former Muslim, but quite frankly, not an expert on this stuff at all. This clinches my impression of that b/c plenty of Sunnis support Hezbollah b/c the group is against Israel and America. Clearly clueless. And regardless, I'm no fan of hers b/c she deliberately lied to me about something.]
A-hole Vanity asked her, “Is he dangerous”? (WTF!!!! . . .GULP !!!!!) She answered, of course, cause I don’t know if he IS hezbollah, but he supports it. Hezbollah always says, “Death to America”.
She expounded in the end by saying, “He could be a sympathizer of
Hezbo.” She “doesn’t know.”
And the saga goes on.
Yup, Clueless Plagiarist Hannity with more clueless so-called “Experts” who know nothing.
