When I think of Sean Hannity the first thing that comes to mind is the epitome of what it means to be an arrogant blowhard. His is one of the few shows I honestly can’t stomach watching or listening to. Though I find people like Limbaugh and Beck far more repulsive, there’s just something about Sean Hannity I absolutely cannot stand.
While he was speaking with Liz Cheney recently he once again attacked liberals who’ve spoken out against torture, in particular waterboarding. He also proudly proclaimed he would have waterboarded detainees himself if given the chance.
Here, take a look:
Isn’t he such a tough guy? Just so “macho.” Oh, and he’s completely full of crap.
Perhaps many of you recall back in 2009 when Hannity said he would allow himself to be waterboarded for charity, donating all the proceeds from the event, to prove that it wasn’t torture.
Well, it’s 2014 and he’s yet to allow himself to be waterboarded. In fact, when confronted about it by Think Progress, Hannity became enraged and highly defensive.
It’s pathetic enough that people like him try to talk tough about torturing people by waterboarding them, but to do so after you’ve been too much of a coward to experience the process yourself (after promising to do so) just compounds the cowardice.
In fact, I say if Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Hannity and all these conservatives feel so strongly that waterboarding isn’t torture, we should consider waterboarding the whole damn bunch. These people seem so sure that these tactics are humane, then I say they should be open to experiencing it for themselves. They seem so eager to “talk tough” about the act, let’s see just how tough they are.
But I know this will never happen. These men are cowards. Sure, they can talk a big game, but the reality is they’re gutless.
Sean Hannity is nothing more than a typical conservative who talks big about waterboarding but would never have the courage to experience it himself. Like with most things he says, his comments are meant for the ears of the most ignorant among us, but are nothing more than shallow words from a hollow man.
