Watch: Sean Hannity Totally Loses His Sh*t With Palestinian Guest

Sean Hannity became increasingly hostile toward a Palestinian guest on Thursday.

Before cutting off Yousef Munayyer, the executive director of The Jerusalem Fund and Palestine Center in Washington, Hannity proudly displayed his bias.

Hannity asked, "Is Hamas a terrorist organization?" Hannity asked.

 “Do I get to actually speak now?” Munayyer said.

"You get to answer the question, it’s a simple yes or no question,” Hannity responded.

 “Sir, you invited me on here as a guest,” Munayyer said.

 “I’m asking a question," Hannity said again. "Is Hamas, whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel, is that a terrorist organization? That’s a yes or no question.”

 “Thank you for your question and now I will provide an answer,” Munayyer replied. “It’s very telling to me, and it should be telling to your viewers by the way, that the moment you have a Palestinian voice on your program who begins to explain the legitimate grievances of Palestinians on the ground, not just Hamas--”

Hannity began shouting at Munayyer to answer the question.

 "Am I a guest on your program or am I on the witness stand here?" Munayyer asked.

"Yeah you're a guest, but you don't get to filibuster," Hannity said. "Answer, is Hamas a terrorist organization?"

 Munayyer answered, saying that the United States designates Hamas as such.

 "What part of this can't you get through your thick head?" Hannity shot back.

 Munayyer asked if he would get to say anything further. "You had your chance," Hannity said as he cut off the guest. "You didn’t say Hamas is a terrorist organization. Goodbye.”

Here's Why Twitter Users Are Tweeting, "Oh my God, I'm a Republicunt!"

When watching the show "True Blood," Pam and Eric fans know that bloody scenes are inevitable, however, Sunday night's episode offered a little something extra.

The Huffington Post reports:
Vampires Eric and his progeny Pam attended a Ted Cruz fundraiser supposedly held at the George W. Bush Presidential Library in Dallas to search for the parents of their enemy, Sarah Newlin. Trying to blend in, Eric dons a Western-style suit with a bolo instead of a necktie while Pam puts on a purple dress worthy of a gala on either side of the aisle. But when she catches a glimpse of herself in a mirror, Pam utters a line that would light up Twitter:

Fox's Todd Starnes Blames/Mocks Obama After 295 Lives Were Lost In Malaysia Airlines Crash

Fox's Todd Starnes portrays how a right wing Christian reacts to the potential deaths of 295 souls after the Malaysian Airline passenger jet was possibly shot down by separatists. Breathlessly, Todd ran to his Twitter account to demean Obama, without one Tweet expressing grief for the hundreds of lives on that jet.

It's all about taking jabs at Obama:

He should hang his head in shame, but that would mean he has a conscience and we know that's not true.

New Analysis Shows Which Network Lies The Most. Spoiler: Fox Is Full of Big Fat Liars

This following will totally shock no one ever. According to a new analysis by PunditFact, fully half the statements by Fox News hosts and guests were false, mostly false, or outright lies. I know, that can't possibly explain why Fox has so many viewers, but it does explain the dumbing down of America.

Other networks are spewing lies and misinformation, but there are more big fat liars on Fox News than the other networks.

 Let's compare:

Poor 'Holly Hobby Lobby' Doesn't Understand Why The Internet Is Laughing At Her

'Holly Hobby Lobby' made her way on to Fox News. She's been circulating pictures of herself on Twitter and now she's ready for more attention. However, it didn't go over so well the last time. 
The recent picture of her holding an AR-15 and a Bible in front of the American flag -- which was supposed to make leftists' heads explode -- turned into the joke of the Internet, because her picture bore a resemblance to a suicide bomber known as the 'White Widow'.
Fox thinks we're 'intolerant' for pointing out the obvious that both women are wrapped in the flag. Both women believe they are 'patriots.' Both women are wrong. 
HOLLY 'HOBBY LOBBY': “It’s shocking for me that people would compare someone who is standing in front of our flag that represents our freedom on Independence Day. I’m holding my First and Second Amendment rights in my hand and it all represents freedom, and they want to compare me to a woman who is quite the opposite. She despises everything about this country and hates this country and would kill all of us if given an opportunity. I don’t understand where the logic comes from.”

“I expected less backlash with this than I did the first one because the picture is, like, America’s founding principles. That’s all that’s in the picture. And I really didn't think it would cause the uproar that it has.”


Holly has since removed the 'Hobby Lobby' moniker from her profile on Twitter, but to the rest of us, she'll always be Little Holly Hobby Lobby.

What the gay rights movement learned from the civil rights movement - TedTalk

 " As a member of both the African American and LGBT communities, filmmaker Yoruba Richen is fascinated with the overlaps and tensions between the gay rights and the civil rights movements. She explores how the two struggles intertwine and propel each other forward — and, in an unmissable argument, she dispels a myth about their points of conflict. A powerful reminder that we all have a stake in equality. " --
