He's talking about virulent racist Republican "politician" Andy Martin, who is also a chief source of rumors that Obama is a secret Muslim. I didn't hear anything about Turner in there.
"The Anthony R. Martin-Trigona Congressional Campaign to Exterminate Jew Power in America." That was his platform for the Republican nomination in Florida.
thanks for the correction. I actually noticed the mis-title right after I submitted but really didn't think it would make it out this quickly. I just put it out there out of pure reactivity because I think both Martin and Turner should burn in the inferno of historic moral lessons
Sorry, Robert Gibb's argument about Hannity having controversial guests being guilt by association is pretty weak and Hannity calls HIM out on it. but, yeah, plus one star cause Hannity is evil.
I think he's basically saying "your argument is so stupid that I will fight your stupidity with stupidity."
Well then he failed because his argument made him and the obama campaign look stupid. not even colmes caught his point (if indeed it was some ironically self-defeating point). Gibb's should have stuck with the "Even conservatives served on the board" line of reasoning.
Colmes is a boring, staged democrat. His coyness and general kindliness toward Hannity makes this show more of a puppet show than it would be with just Hannity blowing steam everywhere.
You say he should have stuck with "reasoning" when there is no reasoning in these programs. You are given about seven seconds to "make a point." Your core audience isn't watching, so you're really just doing it to amuse yourself or make Hannity look stupid for the amusement of your friends. Hannity should not be putting people like Andy Martin on TV and then defending it with "well, we give people with different view points because we're tolerant (and you're not)." No, Hannity, you don't give white nationalists platforms because "you're tolerant." You do it because a sizable percentage of your demographic sympathizes with them.
I couldn't listen. I was mesmerized by the "poll" at the bottom of the screen.
I would have liked to see him bring his argument around to saying "well if you don't like being called anti-semetic then obama wouldn't like being called a terrorist for being guilty by association."
But it just ended up being a childish, angry mumbling match.
Hannity's tirade makes this one of the most depressing clips I have ever seen
Extra stars for Hannity referring to himself as a journalist.
