Hannity is a Fudd

| May 5, 2020

Sean Hannity

Been listening to Hannity for a while now- he’s repetitious and egotistical. But I always thought of him as a staunch 2A supporter. Got my eyes opened watching his show last night. On a segment with Dan Bongino and Dave Rubin he started going off on those scary guns people were toting at the Lansing, Michigan Statehouse protest last week. Bongino and Rubin started to push back, but in typical Hannity fashion he just talked over them for the rest of the air time.

By the end of the segment he looked nervous, and quickly went to a break.

Fudd: /fudd/ noun, informal; Definition: A gun owner, often an outdoor writer, who is too stupid to realize that their antiquated and idiotic opinions regarding firearms and the Second Amendment are being used as propaganda by those seeking to strip them of their firearms rights.

Hannity on armed lockdown protesters: No one should be attempting to intimidate officials with a show of force
May. 05, 2020 – 4:00 – Protesters, some of them armed, demonstrated against Gov. Whitmer’s stay-at-home orders outside Michigan’s Capitol building; reaction from Dan Bongino and Dave Rubin.

That is exactly what the Second Amendment is for- keeping our elected masters reminded of who this country really belongs to. Later, Sean. It’s been bunches of fun, but I have better things to do than listen to a Fudd. Watch the video here: Fox Video

    I listen to Hannity on the radio and, while he has some good guests, he also has a tendency to talk and talk and talk and say the same thing over and over again. Sometimes I find myself shouting at the radio, “Shut up, Hannity, and let the guest talk! Let them answer your question, at least!”

    • UpNorth says:

      I used to do the same, Wretch, then I quit listening to him. That’s all he does, talk over his guests, and push his BS.

  2. AW1 Rod says:

    I listen to Sirius channel 125 (The Patriot Channel) during the day, while working. Hannity’s show starts at 1500, which is when I de-tune for the day. His blather is repetitious and annoying, as Ed has already pointed out.

    • Commissioner Wretched says:

      I do like it when Lynda McLaughlin, his executive producer, puts him in his place. Those parts are fun to hear.

  3. Curly_Bill says:

    I just find Hannity to be more and more shrill. I stopped listening long ago and since I rarely watch TV, I never watch him.

    • FuzeVT says:

      That’s basically what my comment would have been. Last I listened to him was when I was in Albany, GA from 2009-2012 (that tour was every SECOND of 3 years long, but I digress). Eventually the thing I noticed was that he did what I accuse libs of doing during interviews. That is, to give them a yes or no question and demand they answer it as yes or no. That may be ok in certain circumstances (“Is an unborn baby a person or not” comes to mind). Generally, it is a way to boil down complicated issues to the point of absurdity. Rarely are issues worth talking about if they can be answered in a single word. Hannity just seemed to do that a lot. That’s why long form interviews on Podcasts blow TV out of the water. TV is a dead interview medium, it just doesn’t know it yet.

  4. MI Ranger says:

    SO I have a question in regards to these protesters at the Michigan Statehouse. The Governor called them racist, nazis, and something else. Some news outlets said they had various symbols of repression with them, such a s the Confederate flag, swastikas, and boom sticks (making up that last one). I did see a flag that imitated a confederate (or southern state) flag, on one of the trailers parked outside, but I did not see any of the other stuff they were talking about…other than lots of boom sticks like Mr. Hannity pointed out. Did anyone else see the symbols of repression the Governor and the news media were talking about?

    • Ex-PH2 says:

      No. And how many times do they have to lie before they stop lying?

    • AW1Ed says:

      Saw a Stars and Bars flag, but nothing else. If there were they’d be all over the Lame Stream Media.

      • E4 Mafia '83-'87 says:

        Yes, Hannity can be repetitive…and talk over guests…and be repetitive. I saw the segment and my take was the ‘optics’ of the event. There some, but not all, who were carrying that looked more para-military instead of concerned citizens. Guys dressed head-to-toe in black and y-belts with extra mags do look scary. I would rather see John Q gun owner dressed a little less threatening, but that’s just one man’s opinion.
        Gov. Whitner is flat out lying about nooses and swastikas to scare people into supporting her Orwellian vision.

        • timactual says:

          ” Guys dressed head-to-toe in black and y-belts with extra mags do look scary. I”

          They look more clownish to me. Halloween costumes are only meant to be worn on Halloween.

    • penguinman000 says:

      Their taking a page from Goebbels handbook. Telling a lie long enough and all that.

  5. Same as O’Reilly was in not letting the guest speak. He is a firearms owner but like 98 % of these radio and cable news people whom are firearms owners do not know the meaning and history of the 2A in that they all talk about that it is about defending themselves from criminals but not about protecting themselves from the govt. It’s also frustrating listening to these peeps not knowing anything about the workings of and firearms nomenclature. The same goes for the peeps I am friendly with in that handguns are ok but not those black rifles. When I try and educate them, they tell me that if a tyrant gets elected as Pres. then just vote him/her out of office so if your firearms are confiscated, how do you vote the shit bird out of office. Ie, Venezuela.

  6. thebesig says:

    From a PSYOP perspective, Hannity is right. We understand what those folk are doing, with open carry. The question is, do the Democrats or specifically, the growing number of extreme leftists in this country understand what’s going on? They’re the ones supporting the policies of the governors facing these demonstrations.

    They (many on the left) are brainwashed into thinking “guns bad”, “people with guns bad”, “conservatives NAZI”, etc. Those demonstrators are regular citizens exercising their 2A rights. Their message resonates with us… We have constitutional rights, and the citizenry is allowed to be armed to insure that we continue to have constitutional rights.

    But, to a growing number of leftists, especially among the young, the arguments we advance related to this are considered “bad history”.

    The Democrats in power could use this if something wrong happens, and the Democrats in media would be quick to zero in on the miscreants and paint the entire conservative movement with a wide “Extreme right are NAZIs” narrative.

    Showing up and peacefully open carrying to a legislative building, or governor mansion, when protesting government moves against the 2A is a right fit. But, demonstrating against strict stay at home orders by showing up looking like a militia gives the media an opportunity to build on their “the right is unhinged” or “the right is extremist” message.

    Even Jonn slammed the people who had the militia look doing open carry during a demonstration.

    The demonstrators are on the right track. Unfortunately, their psychological actions are working against their PSYOP arguments.

    • Commissar says:

      The majority of Americans support the policies. Not just the far left libs.

      • SFC D says:

        Negative, Commissar. The majority supports considered, reasonable measures and policies. Not complete lockdowns and restrictions a la Whitmer. That’s not a governor. That’s a dictator. And we’re not having any of that, thank you very much. Now, please feel free to tell me how I’m happily dancing on the strings of my dictatorial presidential puppetmaster.

        • Commissar says:

          You are. These protests only happened after a Trump called for liberation on Twitter, Trump only targeting states with dem governors, and the organized protests only happened in states that trump explicitly called for “liberation”.

          You are a puppet.

          And the majority support Whitmer on this.


          • MSG Eric says:

            Michigan population: 9.9 million
            Poll respondents: 600

            And if they’re calling people in Detroit, it would be easy to find 600 people to poll the way they want.

            Polls too often have the answer before they even ask the question. I could call 600 people in California who would say Newsome is out of control and should be recalled. Even though there are millions of dumbasses there who think he’s wonderful and fantastic.

            • Mason says:

              Headline; “In a poll of those most likely to respond with approval, the people support Gov Whitless”

          • SFC D says:

            I’m not quite sure you understand the word “majority”.

            I didn’t need Trump or any other president to tell me what Whitmer has done is wrong. I think for myself, a concept that’s foreign to you. I dance for no one.

          • ArmyATC says:

            Horse manure. You would have us believe that people were happy with the lockdowns until Trump told them not to be. There have been increasing rumblings of discontent since the lockdowns were initiated. Trump simply tapped into that increasingly angry response to them.

            As for those carrying rifles; I can understand why some did it. Gov. Witless, by deeming gun stores “non-essential” was, in essence, attacking the 2nd Amendment. The ones that get under my skin are the “speshul farces” wannabes who have to dress out in their tacticool cosplay crap. I’d wager most of them couldn’t run to the ends of their driveways without gasping like fish out of water, but they want to play “Billy Badass.” Carry your rifle without the dress up, for cryin’ out loud.

            • 11B-Mailclerk says:

              Are you saying “they don’t need their right” ?

              If so, you are agreeing with the ban folks who say it is a privilege subject to restriction.

              I would not personally carry a .454 Casual sidearm, but I also won’t tell someone they should stop because they don’t “need” it.

              Those folks with the long guns are exercising their rights. The folks who demand they stop are the ones out of line.

              It’s a right, not what folks allow you to do.

              Those folks are -essential- to preserving our rights, because the minute you say “can’t carry -that-” you are conceding the key point: not a right, but a privilege subject to restriction.

              The will likely stop lugging the boat-anchors around when no one gives a flying flip. Don’t help the antis.

              • ArmyATC says:

                “Are you saying “they don’t need their right” ?

                Absolutely not! I would never even suggest such a thing. In fact, I would take my rifle to certain protests if I could figure a way to strap it securely to my wheelchair (I’m working on a mount. Hopefully I can get it right). No, my point is that exercising one’s 2nd Amendment right doesn’t require tacticool gear to be worn during a protest. I was simply pointing out that it is my opinion that at least some of those who do that are simply wanting the world to see them as tough guys and had nothing really to do with protest. They would have been better served leaving that equipment at home. Take your rifle and a spare magazine or two.

                • 26Limabeans says:

                  How about dressing up in
                  Minuteman garb with cartrdige
                  box and bayonet?

                  From Wiki:

                  “Most Colonial militia units were provided neither arms nor uniforms and were required to equip themselves. Many simply wore their own farmers’ or workmans’ clothes and, in some cases, they wore cloth hunting frocks. Most used fowling pieces, though rifles were sometimes used where available. Neither fowling pieces nor rifles had bayonets. Some colonies purchased muskets, cartridge boxes, and bayonets from England, and maintained armories within the colony”

                  A mount for your chair sounds interesting.
                  Perhaps an open scabbard ala “Wagon Train”.
                  I loved that show. Anyway, share your design
                  when you complete it.

                  • ArmyATC says:

                    The Minuteman idea is epic!!!

                    My original idea was a rest for the stock on the footrest of the chair and a type of clip for the barrel mounted on the frame. But, I’ve been thinking about reversing that, with the barrel rested on the footrest. I’ll definitely post when I have a working model.

          • George V says:

            Commissar, regarding Michigan protests you state: “These protests only happened after a Trump called for liberation on Twitter,…”

            First protest in Lansing was Weds. April 15, 2020. https://tinyurl.com/rbknt88

            Trump tweet “Liberate Michigan” was sent two days later, Fri. April 17.

            The Trump tweet was sent after the first protest, it DID NOT incite it.

            Just trying to keep the record straight here.

      • Roh-Dog says:

        I don’t give one squirt of piss if 99 out of 99 support it, what f’in part of the Constitution aren’t you comprehending?
        You swore to uphold and defend it, why don’t you crack the goddamn binding sometime?

      • ArmyATC says:

        A majority of Americans may support “lockdowns” in the short term. But they don’t/won’t in the long term. Nor are they supportive of policies such as Gov. Whitless’ vague and idiotic policy that restricts stores to selling only what the governor deems “essential items.”

    • SFC D says:

      Agree completely, besig. The protesters absolutely had the right to carry firearms into the building. The question, as always, is should they have done it? Did it serve a purpose? What was the gain? In the eyes of the opposition, they looked like armed thugs “storming” the building. With rights, come responsibilities. It was irresponsible and unnecessary to make this into an armed protest. These protesters caricatured themselves into the exact stereotype the left has for us. And while I support their cause 100%, I cannot support their tactics. It’s just like the old saying. “Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should”. We have to be smarter than that.

      • Roh-Dog says:

        They weren’t protesting a disagreement about the temperature setting at the public pool.
        Everyone has a line. They found theirs.

      • MSG Eric says:

        I would tend to agree. It wasn’t about carrying them to support 2A, it was probably more about carrying them to look cool. “Oh, see all my tacti-cool gear? I’m legit elite!”

        I don’t see the need for them to have carried, regardless of the fact no shots were fired, no violence occurred, etc.

        • 11B-Mailclerk says:

          “Fair warning”

          They gave fair warning that if the abuses of their rights continue, they are prepared to fight.

          It is an effort to reduce bloodshed.

          “Clearly the oppressors misunderstand us. If we warn them directly, they may turn aside. ”

          Stop, or they’ll shoot, in other words.

          Those open carry folks at Concord tried to warn other tyrants. Fools didn’t listen then, either.

          Bearing Arms is a right, folks. We serve the tyrants when we try to shame them into submission, into voluntarily surrendering that right. Don’t like it? Don’t participate. But after their right to keep and bear is squashed, yours is next. “This isn’t appropriate” “you don’t need” “time have changed” “you scare people” “no, you can’t”

          Leave them be.

      • timactual says:

        “In the eyes of the opposition, they looked like armed thugs “storming” the building.”

        Who cares what the opposition thinks? Anyway, if that’s what they really thought they would get as far away as possible. All that outrage and claiming to be intimidated is fake.

        ” These protesters caricatured themselves into the exact stereotype the left has for us.”

        True. Halloween costumes should only be worn on Halloween. They remind me of the guys in “Big Bang Theory” dressing for a comic book convention. And long guns should only be carried when there is a specific need. They are a pain in the butt to carry for one thing, even with a sling.

  7. Veritas Omnia Vincit says:

    He’s a statist turd, consequently the notion that someone might try and coerce the state in the same manner as the state coerces each and every taxpayer every day of the year is unsettling to guys like Hannity.

    In 1776 guys like Hannity felt Sam Adams and the Sons of Liberty were unjustly trying to intimidate the King’s men…

    Statists can’t help themselves, they are so comfortable in their statist lifestyle that they can imagine no scenario where any state action would so negatively impact their lives that they would ever challenge the status quo.

    Bootlickers love the taste of shoe polish.

    • just lurkin says:

      Amen VOV, once the state is allowed to break free of its narrowly defined role and take over other aspects of society it is very hard to return it to its proper role. Hannity has never struck me as having anything that could be called a “guiding philosophy” and he seems to be easily influenced. I’ve never understood his appeal as a talk show host as he has never seemed to me to be particularly nimble intellectually. It is heartening to see groups of individuals around the nation who seem to be realizing that their governments have gone beyond the appropriate scope of their authority-may a thousand protests occur.

  8. Commissar says:

    The protests would be a lot more credible if they were not just sycophantically obeying Trump’s propaganda calls on Twitter.

    You don’t get to pretend to be pro-freedom while rabidly supporting an open and explicit authoritarian.

    And if these protests were legit they would not just be targeting Dem governors, since both democrats and Republican governors instituted lockdowns.

    A bunch of morons obeying their political masters while cosplaying as defiant patriots.

    Putting themselves, their family, their friends, and their fellow citizens at increased risk of viral spread.

      • Commissar says:

        Let me guess. I lost you when I said Trump was authoritarian.

        It says a hell of a lot that you don’t realize he is. He is openly and explicitly compulsively authoritarian. It is literally part of his personality disorder.

        • Mason says:

          You have some balls to stick to that argument, you fetid turd. Especially when we’re pointing to the MANY examples on your side of the political fence that are literally engaging in authoritarian, fascist, blatantly unconstitutional “orders.”

        • SFC D says:

          I still don’t agree with all of their tactics, but this was not a pro-Trump rally. It was a pro-constitution rally. And to my casual observation, it would appear that Dem governors have tended to take lockdowns to an extreme in most cases.

          • Commissar says:

            Except the grifter organizers only targeted the governors and states that Trump tweeted needed to be “liberated”.

            And Trump targeted democrat swing states.

            It was a campaign event. And the dipshits that participated had no idea they were being soft minded pawns while putting themselves and their loved ones at risk.

            Also, the Trump 2020 flags counter your claim this was not motivated by obedience to Trump.

            • SFC D says:

              You’ve confused “support” with “obedience”. As an example, as an active duty Soldier, I was “obedient” to the orders of Barrack Obama. I did not, nor was I required to, “support” him. See the difference? I am not obedient to Donald Trump. I do, however, support him.

          The answer is Democrats, Democrats, and Democrats which is not the party of personal freedoms. These protests aren’t happening because of Trump or because the Governor is Democrat; its happening because some Democratic Governors are over stepping their authority.

    Also, this country would be well served when they realize that all the major news outlets do not serve the interests of the public or the individual citizen…

    They serve the interests of various factions of the ruling class.

    Hannity never spoke truth to power. He always promoted the narrative of faction of elites striving for more power and wealth.

    Neither party gives fuck all about the citizens of this country.

    They want access to power and control of public funds.

    Funds they use in exchange for more personal wealth and power.

    There is a reason that republicans only say they care about balanced budgets and spending limits but always vote to spend more.

    There is a reason they talk about tax cuts for the middle class but only actually focus on cutting taxes for their major donor class..

    There is a reason dems politicians love to talk about reform but do everything in their power to stop reform from happening.

    And there is a reason democrats constantly join republicans in voting to support corporate bailouts, bank bailouts, and huge wealth transfers to the 0.1%.

      On the contrary, “public servants” should frequently be reminded why they are “public servants” rather than “agents of the Crown”.

    He was far better a commentator when he had Colmes to keep him on point. The two of them together were good, but alone he’s got no competition.

    I like watching Tucker Carlson, but as soon as Hannity comes on, I change the channel.

    • AW1Ed says:

      That exactly how I caught the segment. I was about to shut the TV off after Tucker and I saw Bongino in Hanniy’s lineup. Thought I’d stick around and watch.

    • marinedad61 says:

      Classic Tucker Carlson episode here.
      Avenatti tried to dominate a TV show host.
      Give Tucker credit, he pegged Avenatti as a nut from the beginning,
      while CNN, Morning Joe, The View, and others
      were parading Avenatti as their new anti-Trump hero.

      Carlson seems more reasonable than Hannity, most of the time,
      but he talks over and dominates almost every interview.
      It’s his show. Same for Hannity.
      And same for Morning Joe and all the other liberal traps.
      Guests never win these..
      because the guest has no say in editing.
      Entertainment at its best…. and worst.

      • Mason says:

        That is one of the absolute best interviews. Avenatti is trying so hard not to jump across the desk and fight him. My favorite is the tag lines along the bottom of the screen. Creepy Porn Lawyer should have had the sense to know he was being trapped. It provided an insight into just how painfully stupid the left’s new poster boy was. Soon proven in a court of law.

        • MSG Eric says:

          I think the problem was, he was thinking, “I’m a smart lawyer, I won’t get trapped by him in his own AO! Yep, I’ll show him whatfor on his show, no doubt!”

          Hilarious watching that video and having him dressed down over and over again.

          Amazing how quickly the “Avenatti for president!” calls stopped once they started investigating his illegal activities. About the same time as his 15 interviews a day on the MSM stopped happening.

          Probably just a coincidence…

    Phuque Heem. And his attitude. Don’t watch, don’t listen. And, again, it is not about the control of the gunz, it is about the control of the people. The wanna be dictators know that in order to completely control the people, they must be disarmed. Every.damn.time. History is replete with examples of disarmed people becoming subjects, not citizens. #Resist #Revolt

  13. Slow Joe says:

    Never liked that guy.

    He is always trying to separate the “rank and file” in the bureaucracy from the politicians running the departments.

    I am like: Dude, what is job number one of ANY bureaucracy?

    • 26Limabeans says:

      “what is job number one of ANY bureaucracy?”

      Don’t kill the job?

    • timactual says:

      “He is always trying to separate the “rank and file” in the bureaucracy from the politicians running the departments.”

      The rank and file is the problem, not the political hacks. I used to be one of those rank and file guys. The only time the political hacks got involved with our normal activities is when it hurt some influential entity. The rest of you peasants were at our mercy.

    • Poetrooper says:

      Easy–create more jobs.

    Hanity is a smart guy who has incredible sources. He’s rarely wrong on something, especially in the last 4 years. He has his faults and can get annoying when he repeats the same thing over and over, but I think you’re all taking him out of context. I listened to the show. It’s not that he’s against the 2nd amendment. He said they are not helping. The left is using the tacti-cool guys against the right. We don’t need republicans, libertarian’s, ect.. to be convinced that this is bad. We need Democrats to start seeing the government overreach as bad. Guys standing there in tactical gear and rifles are not helping the movement. They take away from the message and are used as propaganda. That’s not saying what they are doing wrong or they should not be allowed to do it. I don’t agree with the “open carry” crowd that carts their M-4s into restaurants either. It’s not that I think they are wrong, I just think it’s unnecessary and actually hurts the argument/movement at times. When we feed their propaganda, we hurt ourselves. There was someone carrying a sign comparing the Governor to Hitler and it has a Nazi symbol on it. Do you think that most people took the time to actually read the sign in the 1/2 second shot it got on the news? No, they just caught the symbol and listened to the announcer call them white supremist. You cannot loose the I/O battle.

    • Commissar says:

      The guy is a fucking grifter.

      And mercenary of the wealthy donor interests.

      Name one time he opposed the interests of the 0.1%.

      • Roh-Dog says:

        And; Maddow, Lemon, Cuomo, Cooper (Vanderbilt), etc ain’t?
        How about you actually fight the system you profess to hate, yet serve and enable.
        Its consolidation of power and voting ain’t gonna fix it.

      • timactual says:

        “And mercenary….”

        As opposed to all those left-wing idjits who work for room and board only because of their dedication to truth, justice, and the American way.

        They are all just talking heads who have found willing suckers to listen to their ravings.

      • Mason says:

        Taxing the shit out of cheap Chinese imports. There’s others, but you only asked for one.

      • ArmyATC says:

        “The guy is a fucking grifter.”

        Kinda like you. Only Hannity is smart enough to get paid very well. You, not so much. What’s the difference between a grifter and a propagandist? A good paycheck.

      • rgr769 says:

        Everyone you don’t like is a “grifter” to you. You apparently are clueless about the actual meaning of that word. Unlike you, at least he has a JOB and pays taxes.

    • timactual says:

      “He said they are not helping. ”

      Ironically that is the same thing the Republican establishment told (and still tells)conservatives every time a conservative espoused a conservative idea.

      “Just shut up and go home and let us wise, experienced, and qualified folks handle it”.

    • timactual says:

      ” I don’t agree with the “open carry” crowd that carts their M-4s into restaurants either. It’s not that I think they are wrong,..”

      I don’t agree with them either, and I also think they are wrong. Long guns are not fashion accessories and are unsuitable for personal protection in normal circumstances. You have a need for one you carry one, if not, leave it at home or in the vehicle. If I am sitting in a restaurant and see folks carrying M4s come into the restaurant I am leaving. If I own the restaurant they are leaving.

  15. Bill R. says:

    I stopped watching Hannity years ago. He would say the same shit night after night and never think things through. Neither he, nor his research team are very smart.

    For the record, I am a Michigander and a card-carrying member of the group most likely to die if I get the virus. That said, I take the proper precautions and do what I want, when I want. The protesters have my full support but I do believe they made a few errors. Their support for the 2nd Amendment was not one of them.

    I spent years in Korea and the Western Pacific. Those folks have been wearing a mask since long before the virus began and I knew our government was lying to us when they said masks don’t work.

        From Wiki:

        “Michigander is considered pejorative by some due to the circumstances under which the term was coined….”

        I will leave it up to the reader to look
        into it further if they give a shit which
        I doubt they do.

  16. timactual says:

    I despise both Hannity and O’Reilly. I watched Hannity a few years back when he had Mike Farrell on. I don’t remember the topic but my opinion of Mike Farrell went up just because he managed to put up with Hannity’s BS and still be polite and pleasant. I even went so far as to use Google to try and find an address for Ferrell so I could send him my condolences and admiration.

    Still disagree virulently with Farrell’s positions, but I would rather have a beer and chat with him than with those other two blowhard know-nothings.
