On-air fireworks erupt between FNC’s
Sean Hannity and Democratic
Rep. Keith Ellison [VIDEO]

Daily Caller, by Jeff Poor

Original Article

Posted By:drive, 2/27/2013 9:07:52 AM

Live on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel show on Tuesday night, Minnesota Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison ripped into Hannity for airing a video of President Barack Obama’s remarks on the sequester to the tune of the “Carmina Burana” overture “O Fortuna” by Carl Orff. HANNITY: Congressman, welcome back, sir. ELLISON: You bet. HANNITY: I guess that’s what we can describe as staying on message, something the Democratic Party I would argue is very good at. ELLISON: You’re pretty good at it, too. HANNITY: Thank you.

How can a Muslim or Communist swear an oath to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies foreign and domestic when both have agendas to destroy our Constiutuion and laws?

Hannity was way too polite to this radical. He let him rant for about 5 minutes. I would have cut him off after 30 seconds when he wouldn´t shut up.

Poster 4: Sean believes everyone tends to gravitate to others of like philosophy and quickly begin to forget that there is not only opposition to their views, but stupid loyal, Fanatical opposition. He has people like Ellison on to remind us what we are up against.

Ultimately, thought this might be unintentional, he is showing us we will not win this argument with words, alone. Like with many psychotic individuals, physical intervention may be necessary.

That´s the sort of thing that really bothers me about FNC.

They allow too many of "those" (libs/Dems) people appear on their shows and show too many news clips of "them."

I find myself tuning out more than I´m tuning in.

Hannaty has these types of people on for ratings, he is only an entertainer, and a sounding board for the sheeple to blow off steam, but nothing never comes from his dialogs. He is a firm supporter of john roberts, a good friend of Karl Rove (his words not mine) and supports a whole host of other Rino repubs including Mcshame. I have stopped listening to him, and his show along time ago due to his "arranged" fights between conservatives and liberals in which the debated message is lost in the on air screaming matches.

Fox has morons like Ellison on their shows to sell commercials. that is the business they are in; that is how they make money.

they sell the sensational, not the intelligent. i quit watching Fox (and TV) years ago. it is not for serious people.

I think he had him on because Ellison was behind a move to remove the "debt clock" from Congress. It was in the news yesterday. Ellison actually passed up an opportunity to make himself appear reasonable. Instead, he just cemented conservatives´ views that he is a radical Muslim-sympathizer along the lines of Cynthia McKinney.

I suggest having a Sean Hannity Drinking Game...every time he mentions he once washed dishes for a living - one drink, that he worked in construction - 2 drinks, Karl Rove "the Architect" - 3 drinks, etc...wouldn´t take long and you would be drunk.

I am very tired of the screaming match he has with so called guests. I´m pretty well sick of him.

I dont much care for Hannity, for the same reason I dont like several of the hosts. They push their ideology so hard the guests cant speak. Often they will ask and reask a question till they get the answer they want. If all else fails, Hannity responds to an answer with a quiet, disgusted sounding "yeah".
I could not do what they do, and I admire them for that. Still, they do get old.
Rush and Levin are tops in my book. I´ve given up on Medved, Hannity, O´Reilly and Reagan. I couldn´t get G. Gordon after I moved a few years back, but was tiring of him, too.

The pre-interview video that Hannity put together for this segment was very interesting. It was clips of Obama giving his sequester stump speech that he travels with. He uses the exact same phrases with the exact same timing, emphasis and intonation. To prove the point, they even matched up two renditions of phrases that were identical. He´s positively robotic in his performance. We know he can turn his smile on and off like a light switch. He can apparently do the same with a speech. All very mechanical but almost life-like.

Hannity had this clown on his show for the same reason he paired up with Alan Colmes - to look comparatively intelligent and competent. The first day of Sean´s nationally syndicated radio show was Monday 10 September 2001. IIRC there was a big big story in the news the very next day, and when radio stations resumed their regular broadcast programming, Sean just happened to be in the right place at the right time. People would have tuned in to 3 hours of a barking dog if it seemed to be commenting on the World Trade Center´s collapse. Luckiest media guy since Dan Rather was the man who had CBS´ Texas beat on 22 November 1963.

What #8 said. Also, Hannity was the first among the Talk Show clowns to declare his support for amnesty for 11-20 million illegal guests, which amounts to an unequivocal demographic surrender. Remember that next time you´re listening to him call himself a "conservative" with the nerf toy in his hands.

High court with vocally devout justices set to

There’s something that makes the current Supreme Court different from some of its recent predecessors. The justices got religion. Or at least they seem more open about their faith, appearing before devout audiences and talking more about how religion shaped their lives or guides them now. As the court this week weighs religious conviction vs. legal obligation in the latest challenge to the Affordable Care Act, those who study the court say the change is hard to quantify but easy to notice. Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. and Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. are devout Catholics who faced questions during their

Patriotic American and U.S. Senator David Vitter (R., La.) pushed backed against the Democratic Party’s troubling pro-cancer agenda this week by defending libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, calling them “two of the most patriotic Americans on the face of the earth.” “I’ll be honest with you. My reaction is God bless the Koch brothers, they’re fighting for our freedoms,” Vitter said at an event in Shreveport, La., on Tuesday in response to a constituent’s question about the nefarious “Kotch” brothers.

It reveals the messages relayed between the cockpit and air traffic controllers during the period when the plane is believed by investigators to have already been sabotaged. As the search continues for possible wreckage of the aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean, the transcript marks a further piece of evidence in the baffling mystery of flight MH370.

Russell Crowe stars in Darren Aronofsky´s Bible-based epic. Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture´s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah. Whereas for a century most Hollywood filmmakers have tread carefully and respectfully when tackling biblical topics in big-budget epics aimed at a mass audience, Aronofsky has been daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention.

Moscow made its first retaliatory shot on Thursday by banning nine U.S. officials and lawmakers from entering Russia, but Putin indicated that Russia would likely refrain from curtailing cooperation in areas such as Afghanistan. Moscow appears to hope to limit the damage from the latest U.S. and EU sanctions and avoid further Western blows.

The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama.

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends.

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Los Angeles — Vice President Joe Biden called on Congress Saturday to pass a measure to outlaw workplace discrimination against gays, saying it´s outrageous that the country is even debating the subject. Speaking to supporters of the gay advocacy group Human Rights Campaign on Saturday, Biden said it´s "close to barbaric" that in some states, employees can be fired because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. "Imagine 20 years from now as America looked back and say ´How in the hell can that ever been allowed?´ The country´s moved on, the American people have moved on," he said. He said it was
