Sean Hannity: Devoting the left a taste of their own medicine

5 months, 5 days ago

The so-called tolerant left is taking its unhinged hatred of the president to a brand-new low, and Kathy Griffin is merely the latest offender.

The alleged comedian is now facing an intensive backlash for a very disturbing photo shoot in which she hoists what looks like the severed head of President Trump. Griffin apparently thought it was funny, but then rapidly apologized after the entire civilized world concurred she had gone way across the line. CNN canceled its agreement with Griffin to co-host the network’s New Year’s Eve coverage with Anderson Cooper.

To be fair, some in the media did realize that what Griffin did was wrong. But plenty of others tried to defend it, laugh it off and even mock the idea that people would be upset about this.

OK , not talking about it, said MSNBCs Mika Brzezinski. Sorry, it’s too gross.

And then there’s CNN, which ran the headline: “Trump family just playing ‘victim’ with beheading photo.”

I have a hard time bringing myself to care about something like this, The Atlantics Molly Ball told the network. I think it simply speaks to the need to see themselves as a victim that they have that they’re constantly being persecuted, constantly.

And then there’s” Senator Compassion” himself, Al Franken. He said Griffin traversed the line, but he is standing by her.

Well, I guess she did the right thing, Franken said of Griffins apology. I suppose asking for forgiveness and acknowledging that this was — this was a horrible mistake. And so I believe she can.

This latest despicable display is merely the latest in a long listing of attacks that the left has been launched against the president and specifically against members of his family — his wife, his daughter, his 11 -year-old son. Barron reportedly watched the sick scene and was understandably frightened. He thought his father had been beheaded!

The left knows no boundaries when it comes to the president’s household. They’ve run after the first lady, Melania Trump. They’ve gone after all the children, Ivanka, Don Jr ., Eric, Tiffany and their spouses, and of course, Barron. You can criticize the president all you want. But truly, an 11 -year-old kid?

Does this not uncover a massive doubled standard when it comes to the left? Nine times out of 10, they can cross the line and they don’t face any consequences. There’s no outrage , no backlash. Conservative don’t say they need to be fired and boycotted. They’re allowed to do and say whatever they want, whenever they want, especially when it comes to smearing and assaulting conservatives, which is probably why Kathy Griffin thought it was OK to do that in the first place.

I dont subsistence boycott. But given the style the alt-left has come after me and others, some folks think it is time to give them a savor of their own medicine. Brian Maloney and Melanie Morgan have created the Media Equality Project to fight back against these efforts to stillnes conservative voices, and they intend to start by taking action against the hard left, whether it is over gags, like Kathy Griffins, or conspiracy hypothesis like those peddled by CNN and MSNBC.

They wont like it. But we dont like what they do to us, either. And 11 -year-old Barron Trump doesnt like what they did to his daddy.
