Hannity Himself has Taken a Swig of the ‘Hater-ade’

“Do not judge, or you too
will be judged. For in the
same way you judge others,
you will be judged,
and with the measure you
use, it will be measured to
you.”

— Jesus Christ- Matthew 7:1-2

In recent months arch conservative mouth piece, Fox News host, and talk show host Sean Hannity, has night after night been chastising Democratic Presidential contender Senator Barack Obama (D-Ill), as has much of Fox News. Hannity has even gone as far as inferring that Obama is anti-Semitic and a racist for his association with the Reverend Jeremiah Wright and the disgusting and inflammatory remarks Wright has made in the past, which Obama has denounced, rejected.

Recently though, on the air a guest brought up Hannity’s ties to former New Jersey Congressional candidate Hal Turner, a man who has been labeled by some as a neo-Nazi, in response to Hannity’s nightly coverage of the remarks.

Hannity, stuttering at first denied knowing the man and from their gave a series of other excuses.

Turner is said by some to have allegedly been a regular guest on Hannity’s WABC radio show for many years at one point. Turner, in a style whose tone can only be refereed to as ‘Jackal and Hyde’posted an entry on his website that stated it was absurd to compare his association with Hannity to that of Obama with Wright. Yet he then goes on to describe their relationship.

Hal Turner:

When Hannity took over Bob Grant’s spot on 77 WABC in New York City, I was a well-known, regular and welcome caller to his show. Through these calls, Sean and I got to know each other a bit. At some point, I can’t remember when exactly, Sean gave me the secret “Guest-Call-in number” at WABC so that my calls would always get on the air.

When I utilized that call-in number, Sean would very often come onto that line during commercial breaks so we could chat before I went on the air. Our off-the-air chats grew to an exchange of other phone numbers, me giving Sean my home and cellular number and Sean giving me his direct dial-in number at the Fox News Channel.

In 1993, my wife got pregnant and around a month later, Sean reported that he and his wife were expecting their first child. We got to talking about things expectant dads talk about and the relationship grew.

According to Turner, the two became so close that Hannity even invited Turner and his son to the Fox News studio for a tour and to sit in on a shooting of Hannity’s Fox News debate show Hannity and Colmes in 1997.

But that same year Turner’s status as a regular on Hannity’s radio show came to an end. Turner suspects that it was because of pressure from station management due to Turner’s often controversial right-wing views. From there the two are said to have quietly drifted apart.

Turner, in his post, strongly defends Hannity to a degree. Saying that to tie Hannity to him in the same way that Hannity has tied Obama to Reverend Wright is absurd. He writes that Hannity and him agreed on a great many things and disagreed on things as it relates to politics and social issues. But in the next breath he gives what to Turner must be considered a compliment, but to mainstream America is likely a damning assessment of their relationship. Remember I am only writing what Turner himself said on his blog.

In my opinion, based on my first hand experience, I believe Sean Hannity is in fact a Hal Turner sort of guy. It seems to me that a big difference between Sean and me is that am willing to say publicly what I think about savage Black criminals, diseased, un-educated illegal aliens, and the grotesque cultural destruction wrought by satanic Jews. While Sean and many others keep quiet to protect their paychecks.

Sounds like they were pretty close. Note to Turner, if you are defending a friend it may be a good idea not to make him sound like some bigoted jackal with the juices of hate and prejudice dripping from his lips. Yeah its really not good for the whole public image. At least Reverend Wright never said that Barack Obama was a ‘Jeremiah Wright kind of guy’ and then went on to tie Obama to his own firebrand beliefs. Why don’t you denounce and reject the words of this man, Hannity? Turner then begins to revert back to his ‘defend Sean and attack all critics mode’.

Another big difference is that I am perfectly willing to use violence against my enemies, while Sean Hannity and others are not. Those using me as a prop to attack Sean Hannity would do well to remember this fact.

He then, in the final sentences of his blog post proceeds to threaten liberal journalist Max Blumenthal as well as the Nation Magazine.

MY TAKE: So if this is all true and Hannity insists on using the McCarthyistic tactics of guilt by association and impugning the character of Obama based on every single remarks of those he is associated with, sounds like Hannity has some explaining of his own to do.

UPDATE (March 23, 10:30PM/ET)-
Phil Boyce, said to be a program director at WABC radio issued a statement on the comment section of the Huffington Post, Hotly disputing the allegations put forth by the Blogs as well as Turner himself. However Newshounds.us says that at least one other source has said that Hannity and Turner were fairly close. I’ll stay on this story for anymore updates.
