Epic eruption: Dem explodes on Hannity
WorldNetDaily ^ | Feb 26, 2013 | Joe Kovacs

"'You are the worst excuse for a journalist I've ever seen'"

In an epic interview for the ages, a Democratic congressman unloaded on Fox News anchor Sean Hannity Tuesday night with a non-stop verbal assault on the popular host.

Hannity opened up a segment on President Obama’s tactics regarding budget issues by saying, “Our alarmist in chief, President Panic himself, he did not feel the need to be at the White House today, nor did he think it was important enough to visit Capitol Hill and try to hammer out a bipartisan solution to the mess that he himself has put the country in.”

He showed a montage of recent Obama remarks with a soundtrack of ominous music behind it.

Hannity then introduced U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., the first Muslim ever elected to Congress, who took little time to insult the program’s host.

“Quite frankly, you are the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen,” Ellison told Hannity at the outset.

“What you just displayed was not journalism. It was yellow journalism. It wasn’t anything close to try to tell the American people what’s really going on. It’s just shocking to me.”

“Yellow journalism?” responded Hannity. “To play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism?”

Ellison tried to label Hannity as a champion for Republican causes, saying, “You are a shill for the Republican Party and you alibi them constantly. You alibi them 100 percent of the time.”

“I am not a registered Republican. I’m a registered conservative,” Hannity explained.

At one point that became somewhat comedic, Ellison told Hannity, “You said I could rant, and I am.”

“I’ve given you plenty of time to rant......

Ellison should get his facts right. Hannity is NOT a journalist... he is a political commentator and is very open about that. He happens to be on a cable news channel, but as a political commentator not a reporter of news. This is different than the MSM where left wing political commentators masquerade as journalists

This is a significant incident.

There is underway a coordinated multi-front effort to brand "Republicans" as enemies of the State and good public order.

This effort is progressive, it is escalating, and there is no reason to believe that it will end any differently than such processes have ended before, elsewhere in the world, many times now since 1792.

Excellent points, bert.

The hypocrisy of the left in this country -- as well as their abject, very public hatred of Americans and America -- really angers me!

I wrote four years ago, that we are reaching the point (using history and human nature as our guides) where moving this revolution forward will require using terror on the citizens.

I knew where we were then and I have not been wrong yet.

It's coming.

Why do we even bother trying to talk to these traitors? You will not convince them that they are wrong; we are not going to change our minds.

Hannity would get better ratings banging his head against a wall than this crap.

Not sure why everyone is getting so worked up. I thought it was quite amazing. A low IQ Congresscritter trying to have have rational conversation.

You could take that guy and his constituents, place them under his control, give them a place to inhabit and in a year you would have a third world hell hole. But then again that is what MN’s 5th district is, so my point is validated.

...in 1987, Ellison married his high-school sweetheart[5] and moved to Minneapolis to attend the University of Minnesota Law School. While there, he wrote several articles in support of Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam. (wikipedia)

AND Ellison went to school and GREW UP IN DETROIT... a city run FOR and BY Democrats. A city that showcases the brilliance of democrat ideas in action... and ONLY democrat ideas...

Hannity should send him a copy of his book and a gift certificate to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.

Well stated, Laz. Ellison is a little boy and a dumbass.
I’m really surprised someone hasn’t taken him down a few notches. The influence peddling can’t be too far from the surface with this guy.

Wish I had a link to the old Monty Pythin skit - The Argument Clinic. Ellison wouod fit right in. He must praise allah 5 times a day for low information voters.

Ellison represents the Minnesota 5th District (Mpls) which has historically been kook leftist.

Is that the district that got loaded up with Somali refugees a few years back? They vote early and often, iirc.

Somalis are all over the Midwest, in Mpls, St. Paul, Sioux Falls, Des Moines, etc.
