The Sean Hannity Show
Friday, May 18th 2008


+ Sean Hannity claims elements of CIA and 9/11 report as "conspiracy":

Mitzy (caller): "Well his comments [Dr. Paul's remarks on "blowback"] come directly from the CIA's own comments and the 9/11 commission report"
Hannity: "Go believe whatever conspiracy you want"

The 9/11 Commission Report reads:

"America's police choices have consequences. Right or Wrong; It is simply a fact that... American actions in Iraq are dominant staples of popular commentary across the Arab and Muslim world."

Hannity labels this position as "naive, ill-informed and ridiculous".

+ Says Ron Paul only won polls because "all the left-wing blogs thought they were being cute and they told all their members to go to their phones and vote for Ron Paul". Offers no supporting evidence.

+ Cuts off other Ron Paul supporters.

+ Avoids engaging in dialog with others Ron Paul supporters.

Even that otherwise detestable Alan Combes was very respectful to Ron Paul on his show. I was shocked. Sean Hannity is showing himself to be a seriously affected kool-aid addled neocon bot. What is up with him.

The MSM is trying to block out Dr. Paul’s message because they are afraid of him. The good doctor is merely a very intelligent man speaking the truth! Why wouldn’t all US citizens including all the MSM talking heads prefer to have the IRS abolished and take home 100% of their paychecks?! The reason that they might object is simple … if the income tax were to be cancelled it would most likely be replaced be something like a tax on the sale of luxury items. In other words, a tax on the purchase of things that us common citizens cannot afford but people with big salaries like the TH’s can. Think boats, expensive jewelry, etc, etc.

Also, how many of these talking heads have friends or family members becoming disabled or dying in Iraq or Afghanistan?! Are these “wars on terror” just reruns of Viet Nam?! Senseless battles where those who are fortunate can spare their loved ones from going into combat? I’m sure that Sean Hannity’s kids will never see the front lines.

Anyway, if Dr. Paul was just some joker who had no chance there would be no need for anyone to attempt to discredit him or edit him out of broadcasts of debates etc. His supporters will not give up now! There is way too much to lose!

“Let me see if I get this right, we need to borrow $10 billion dollars from China, and then we give it to Musharraf, who is a military dictator who overthrew an elected government. Then we go to war, we lose all these lives promoting democracy in Iraq. What is going on here?” (Ron Paul, 2008).
