Hannity: "I am not a Republican" - Sean Hannity spars with Rep. Keith Ellison video

On-air fireworks erupt between FNC’s Sean Hannity and Democratic Rep. Keith Ellison


Daily Caller: Last night on Hannity:

HANNITY: Congressman, welcome back, sir.

ELLISON: You bet.

HANNITY: I guess that’s what we can describe as staying on message, something the Democratic Party I would argue is very good at.

ELLISON: You’re pretty good at it, too.

HANNITY: Thank you.

ELLISON: Quite frankly you are the worst excuse for a journalist I have ever seen.

HANNITY: I can’t hear you.

ELLISON: You heard me.

HANNITY: No, say it again.

ELLISON: I heard you — 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 and I mean, it’s just shocking.

HANNITY: Yellow journalism, to play Obama in his own words is yellow journalism.

ELLISON: With the background music and the lead up before you let the president talk. Let me tell you, I was here. Everything the president said is absolutely true.


ELLISON: And for you to try to make the American people make you think it isn’t is deceptive on your part and is a breach of everything, every journalistic ethic I heard of was just violated by you. And the president was truthful. The president was honest. What the president said was dead on accurate and for you to say the president is to blame here is ridiculous. I was there August, 2011 when the Republicans, your party, which you shamelessly …

HANNITY: I am not a Republican

ELLISON: You are nothing but a Republican.

at least ellison went toe to toe with this turdbag hannity

not saying either one of them are right , its just good to see fox news being put in its place from time to time , sure wish ron paul would have told these suckers off but i guess that is why ellison wont be on tv any time soon.

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."

He is a conservative

Hannity is a Conservative.

But not without putting the Neo in front of it.....


Hannity is a REAGAN Conservative....didn't you know???

Get with the times....

Hannity is not a republican

Hannity is not a republican like Beck is a libertarian. Charlatans.

Two dipshits...

I am a little dumber having watched this....But it was good to see the fake spectacle the MSM is putting out these days...Thanks for sharing...

Bad food, worse weather, please rEVOLution the states so I can bring my family back home!
Rosa Koire for for President!

I am Loving that

they are becoming more and more irrelevant... HA!

It's just sad watching these morons argue over each others propaganda... and they don't even know it!

Viva La Revolution!

Gotta love silly DP commentors to this post.....

A vast majority commenting on this post don't even address the subject of the video in order to be negative towards Hannity. This from people who profess to be fair and open-minded. Phhttt - please!!!!

This exchange seems to be the

This exchange seems to be the standard operating procedure in our puerile media, culture, and government. Indeed, this childish kerfuffle underscores, in a more blatant fashion, political discourse in this country: substance fit for the playground, where nothing of import is actually said other than mere verbal acrobatics and frivolous blubbering.

Keith Ellison should have taken Hannity up on that bet

Please correct me if I am wrong, the registration options are to either register for a party, or as an independent. I don't think there is an option to register as a "conservative", or as a liberal for that matter. I guess given all thats happened with Hannity and RP, I would have loved to see Hannity write out a check to Ellison for 10K.

Apparently in New York you

Apparently in New York you can register as a conservative. I have heard Hannity talk about being a registered conservative before on his show.

Go Hannity!

It's great to see Hannity shred this infantile, angry, Muslim, communist Nellyson.

Hannity is not Republican: He is a Conservative with a capital "C," like my mom. There is a Conservative party in NY state. They do not always endorse Republicans. I know; they used to have the meetings where they interviewed and endorsed candidates in our house!

As usual, a lot of people are commenting from the "I'm a Republican-hating ex-Lib who knows nothing and gets most of my world view from Jon Stewart and S Colbert."

You've been coming to the DP

for 4 years and you're saying stuff like that? C'mon man. I don't buy it.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

Yeah right...

I'd like to ask that ass who the last non-republican he voted for was? He is a fascist mass-manipulator...mind poisoning pos! He is complicit in...and one of the main actors in...the conspiracy to dumb-down and divide our people IMHO.

Thats fine Hannity

But you don't have to be a republican to be annoying and well... imho a worthless, smug and disgusting person.

Ain't it great to see Hannity carved up like that?

Does my heart good.

Hannity is a registered

sex offender. He rapes the ears of hundreds of thousands every day on TV and radio. He takes the dignity of his gullible listeners and puts them in a blender, never to return in the same form they once were.

Hannity: if you're reading this by some small chance: help the American people by retiring your mouth.

I fu**ing hate Hannity and O'Reilly with a passion.

Fox should be kissing Judge Napa's ass for saving their ratings. His and Seth McFarlanes'.

If you don't know your rights, you don't have any.

They're turning on each other now

Money talks and dogs bark

Not a republican ?!?!?

Holy Shit ... You could have fooled me

Hey Sean ( NEWS FLASH ) You are SUCH a REPUBLICAN it's not even funny ~

He's not a Republican or a Conservative.

He's exactly like Obama and that Keith Elision fellow: he fights against the principle of a Republic; he doesn't attempt to conserve useful values, only chaos; he is anti-America to his core; he's the enemy's tool, a gatekeeper, a hatchet man, a sideshow, and a waste of time.

Benjamin Franklin said you've got "A republic, if you can keep it." Well, Hannity is helping tyrants take our republic away, so Franklin is probably rolling in his grave.

You guys need to realize that

You guys need to realize that when someone prefers to call themselves a conservative than a Republican, it means they understand somewhat how messed up the Republican party is and they're trying to find a way out of it without looking like a total jackass flip flopper. It's an incremental improvement over their previous position that will likely lead to further improvement.

Correct. Hannity forgets to add the 3 letters "neo" to his "con"

He is one for those neocons for sure.

Hannity is far more polarizing than Alex Jones.

This makes the Alex Jones show a very calm program to listen to. Has Hannity ever been on Stern or even said the words "Michael Savage?" Hannity doesn't want to wake anyone up. He wants to continue the false right-left paradigm.

If I were

going on Hannity's program, I would compile a list of lies ahead of time. This guy had a huge opportunity and blew it.


Hannity complaining about fear mongering.. Talk about calling the kettle black.

two blowhards

going at it
hannity more savvy but just as slimy
tv world is full of them right/left

Hannity Calls Himself A "Conservative" Never a Republican

What Shamity really is an opportunistic talking head, trying to maintain his big salary. His first and foremost goal is to stay near top of the heap and hold onto his job..

He is a egotistical know it all who wouldn't know a real American from Ho Chi Minh...

I will never forgive him for his terrible treatment of Ron Paul..
