Is Sean Hannity America's #1 Racist Rehabilitator?

http://www.alternet.org/media/sean-hannity-americas-1-racist-rehabilitator



Sean Hannity’s prominence as a national pundit is a testament to the persistence of racism in America. With his own impressive record of racist episodes (One People’s Project, 9/24/11), Hannity also plays an important role as a champion of racists.

His television and radio shows feature a parade of pundit grotesques who join the host in condemning African-Americans, the group that receives the brunt of his bigotry. In this capacity, Hannity also acts as a sort of one-man fire brigade, rushing to extinguish accusations of anti-black racism, and defending, exonerating or rehabilitating the racists behind the words and deeds.

Routinely casting black people as villains, even in stories in which they are obviously victims, Hannity just as regularly casts people who have victimized African-Americans as hapless, persecuted victims themselves. Black people who have been clearly wronged are virtually nonexistent in Hannity’s world.

Sean Hannity seems unconcerned about being shot by neighborhood vigilantes, despite wearing a hoodie.

1. My boss likes to repeat dumb shit she heard on Hannity

She doesn't understand why I don't watch his show. He is #1 with racists, though.

2. I honestly think Hannity is the worst of them all

I really believe a good chunk of all other conservative pundits are at least somewhat self aware and aware of what they are tweaking in their audiences, and even though I'm sure they are still evil people there is at least a modicum of showmanship and hucksterism in what they do.

Hannity I truly believe is an evil, vile, racist piece of shit down to his core. He is the embodiment of every racist, "poor persecuted white man" asshole you've ever known. I think he is legitimately a racist and legitimately filled with hate whereas with the rest of the pundit/hucksters there is at least a slim chance and a small part that they are more appealing to racists than actual racists themselves.

7. His friendship with and support of vicious white supremacist Hal Turner

Dollars for douche bags.

9. Easy question to answer.

Yes.
But the GOP needs the racist vote, and Hanity delivers it.
