Eternal Coward Sean Hannity Says He Would Have Waterboarded Detainees Himself

seanhannityWhen 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.

    Listening to that clip made me feel waterboarded with dog whistles, buzzwords and talking points….

    There’s that word, ‘Benghazi’, again.

    Anybody that can ‘dismiss’ Torture has got to be a little unhinged.

    It takes a certain ‘type’ of person to be able to stomach it: An Abuser:

    1) Who either enjoys inflicting pain (sadist)
    2) Or is coldly ‘detached’ from Empathy

    ^^^This is why it has to be discouraged. When the war is over – and our ‘justification’ for Torture is done – the Abusers rejoin society.

    And they will still be Sadists, lacking Empathy.

    Children, torturing/abusing animals, are miniature psycho/sociopaths in the making. We have laws that prohibit us from abusing one another.

    ^^^We know what ‘works’ and what does not. Torture is not a ‘means to an end’. It’s an end – in and of itself – and not to be tolerated or dismissed.

    God. Karma. Whatever we believe: It’s not right we ask people to ‘taint’
    themselves with Ugliness. Not The Right thing, at all.

    Scammity is a liar and a coward.

    Well; it isn’t for a lack of people who would be glad to help him out. But seriously, having significant experience in various water sports, there is a big difference between deciding to go under water versus being taken by surprise with an accidental partial breath of water and not knowing how far you are from air.

I hate the regressive right yet I would easily do the same for that sizzling 500K per year( or more) ……so: please remember– they don’t care: they just fatten their bank accounts and in the cases of the men I mentioned please say loud and clear::::
