Look, at this point, nothing we hear from the Conservative Entertainment Complex, especially as it relates to President Obama, should be shocking anymore. As we enter the final year of Obama’s tenure in the White House — or as it’s known in conservative circles, the reign of terror by the Kenyan Muslim Socialist Usurper — we’ve pretty much witnessed every single type of ridiculous insult one can think of when it comes to the right-wing media denigrating the nation’s first black president. For many out there, it has become an art form onto itself.
Still, sometimes someone finds it within himself to go that extra mile in barrel-bottom scraping. And, usually, that man is Sean Hannity. On Wednesday, the Hamster did us proud once more.
During the broadcast of his nationally syndicated radio show, Hannity launched into a rant against the President for relying on diplomacy to free ten U.S. sailors who were taken into custody by Iran on Tuesday night. Apparently, the sailors two boats had found themselves in Iranian waters, leading to their capture. However, the Americans were released the next day after Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps had determined that the boats had inadvertently drifted into their territory due to a bad navigation system.
Overall, one should be happy that the whole situation was resolved quickly and peacefully. While Iranian state TV did show video of one of the sailors apologizing for the mistake, obviously an effort to show the Iranian people a bit of propaganda, the sailors were returned unharmed a day after being detained. All in all, a victory for diplomacy and cooler heads. Also, it likely shows that Iran doesn’t want to screw the pooch as they approach the easing of bans and unfreezing of assets in relation to the nuclear deal.
Which is why Hannity had to shit all over it, because coming to peaceful resolutions with sovereign countries is what pussy-ass cake boys do, not virile manly men like Donald Trump, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie or Hannity himself (all of whom have never served one day in the military). Nah, strapping, Christian, hetero, Constitution-loving freedom warriors would have told those gotdamn ragheads what’s what. And that is, give us our men back RIGHT NOW or we will bomb the ever loving shit out of your country.
Below is a transcript of Hannity’s rant, courtesy of Media Matters:
“I don’t know if you’ve seen the new video of the Iranians taking Americans hostage, and covering this female sailor’s head, the way they did. And like, handcuffing them, hands behind their back, and everything else that they did. You know, the president, this is still ongoing, doesn’t even mention it. John Kerry apparently thanked the Iranians. “Oh thank you so much for releasing our sailors, oh we’re so sorry they went in your territory!”
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) actually nailed this, pointed out last night, that the Iranian seizure of two U.S. Navy PT boats, and the detention of their crew, was a deliberate attempt to humiliate Obama. Yea, of course. Because now this idiotic, imbecilic, naïve, reckless and dangerous Iranian deal is about to go into full effect. And Tom Cotton, you know, ripped Obama and said it’s humiliating and it is humiliating, and that’s not going to stop the president from getting into bed with the radical mullah’s in Iran. You know, and I don’t think it’s coincidental that Iran seizes these ships just hours before Obama’s final State of the Union address, I think he’s right.
It’s humiliating for Obama, who doesn’t even mention it during the State of the Union. Then you have stupid remarks by people like Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), crediting the Iranian deal for the sailors release. I’m like, “where do you get this kind of logic? Where does this come from?” You know, I don’t think the Iranians would do this – we have 10 U.S. sailors detained for hours and hours on Friday, I’m sorry on yesterday, last night. Who are the Iranians to take our soldiers hostage and to cover a female sailor’s head and to treat them the way they did, like they’re criminals?
Anyway so they finally returned, I guess at some point at eight this morning they were finally were released and the sailors were later transferred ashore a U.S. Navy aircraft and instead of kissing their asses the way Obama and John Kerry do, why didn’t they just send the message, you either let those people out in three hours or we’re going to bomb the living crap out of you.”
Yeah, man! Why didn’t our leaders send a message that we are willing to fuck over the entire world just so we can prove how big our dicks really are?
Seriously, though, this is crazy talk. The thing is, those ten sailors were barely detained long enough to have a meal, yet he wants our Commander-In-Chief to threaten World War III so that he can prove he isn’t a pussy to conservatives? Such is the state of our so-called political discourse and fourth estate.
