Sean shared the interesting and telling story of NBC News lady Katie Couric who made headlines today with recently released video where she voiced critical and demeaning opinions about former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin including statements questioning how she could hunt and eat moose burgers. “If you doubted the media was liberal, listen to Katie Couric mock Palin’s son’s name or the fact that she eats moose burgers,” an angry Hannity argued today, “her comments were just dripping with contempt and this is more proof that the media just has contempt for all conservatives.” If you want to see Couric’s critical comments, take a look at this video posted on Youtube.com by TheCollegePress.com.
Jay Sekulow, Pamela Geller and Lawrence Guyot: A Mosque Where?
Sean was joined on the show by Jay Sekulow, Pamela Geller and Lawrence Guyout to discuss the controversial construction of a mosque on the 9-11 Ground Zero site. “The origins of the monies for this mosque are not documented,” argued Geller, “and there’s money tied to Bin Laden in this project. Guyot responded, “Every American must allow space for other Americans to exercise their religious beliefs, this is as American as you can get.” Sekulow added his thoughts saying, “Imam Faisal Abdul Rauf refused to call Hamas a terrorist organization.” So the leader of this initiative has essentially denied that one of the most violent groups in the world should be considered terrorist and he won’t fully disclose the funds that’ll be used to build this project. This just doesn’t sound like a good idea.
Colonel Oliver North
Sean was joined on the NewsMaker hotline by Colonel Oliver North to discuss the latest of the Obama apology tour. The latest apology controversy started when the son of the U.S. Air Force pilot who dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan recently came out criticizing President Obama’s decision to send a delegation to the 65th anniversary ceremony in Japan. James Tibbets, son of General Paul Tibbets, said he thought the presence of a U.S. delegation was essentially an “unsaid apology.” “War was declared on us,” argued Hannity, “and now we need to apologize?” North quickly criticized the President, “Every time he goes overseas he apologizes for something the United States has done.“ There’s no doubt that the bombings in Japan were tragic but there are arguably hundreds of thousands of veterans on both sides throughout the years who’re thankful the war ended shortly after the bombing o f Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
