Video: Hannity interviews socialists at the G20. What could go wrong?

The perfect way to heal the rift in the Kirk Cameron thread: Surely the theological contempt we feel for each other is dwarfed by the political contempt we feel for these two imbeciles. On this foundation does the conservative coalition rest, my friends.

Actually, they’re probably atheists, aren’t they? Heart-ache.

I presume these two morons are from Evergreen College in Seattle, where you can’t graduate unless you passed a coarse in protesting.

I bet they’re smokers too.

So… violence is okay for YOUR ideology. Tools.

Thank you Sean for showing these fools for who they are.

Hey, man, no shame in being a young guy without a work history trying to get a foot in the door. Seriously.

I totally understand you wanting to make money now, but I would seriously check out the non-profit angle, for the reasons I mentioned. Another thing is that a lot of non-profits have connections to local businesses (executives like to sit on non-profit boards), so there are potential networking benefits to be had (most studies show that up to 85% of jobs get filled without it ever being made public that they are available). There are two “worst-case” scenarios for you, as I see it. One, you don’t find a job for a year and you’ve got nothing to put on your resume. Two, you don’t find a job for a year, but you’ve got a couple of freelance projects (unfortunately, emphasis on the “free”) to put on your resume. The second just looks better, even though in both scenarios, your income was $0.

And, if you’re in IT (you talk a lot about outsourcing, so I figure there’s a chance you are. I saw the outsourcing wave coming in 2001 and got the heck out of IT), develop an app and sell it on EBay or something. Last year, I had an issue with my cellphone, but I didn’t want to switch phones because I really liked it. I went online and found an app for $10 that solved my problem. The guy I bought it from was just some random dude. The company itself didn’t want to solve the problem, they wanted me to buy a new phone, know what I mean? Again, it wouldn’t so much be the money you’d make, but the ability to talk to an employer and point to something you did. It makes an impression.

venividivici on September 26, 2009 at 11:21 AM

Not once did they answer a question. All they can do is respond with another question, because they do not know the answer.

At least Sean answered their questions.

Finally, the shorter one is a typical leftist (talking out of the side of her mouth).

You could clearly see by their remarks that they have an expectation that someone else is going to take care of them, so there is no need for them to think. My question, is why are they wasting their time at a protest? Go home sit back and wait for the welfare check and Mommy and Daddy’s check from home to pay the tuition, rent, food, car, and fun, so they do not have to actually do anything.

MSGTAS on September 26, 2009 at 11:22 AM

I’ll bet the hard-working parents of these noodniks are so proud.

I’d be yoinking them out of college back home to get a job so fast their head’s would spin.

Midas on September 26, 2009 at 11:44 AM

Or maybe “pagan” or Wiccan or whatever.

ddrintn on September 25, 2009 at 10:17 PM

Yep. Just different flavors of unbelief.

D0WNT0WN on September 25, 2009 at 10:23 PM

You mean “belief”.
The only distinction I make between Monotheists and Spiritualists is that the Monotheists are generally more moral and logical.

Count to 10 on September 26, 2009 at 11:47 AM

The arrogance and stupidity these two nitwits displayed was stunning. It’s obvious Mommy and Daddy put them through College, as one of the young ladies acknowledged, and they’ve never earned a dime in their own lives, more than likely than not, making it soooo easy to appropriate the hard earned dollars of others for their agenda….Communism

Off Topic but….I would bet a million dollars that the young lady on the left suffers from Tourettes Syndrome. No disrespect for people who suffer from Tourettes.

greasywrench on September 26, 2009 at 12:06 PM

Holy cow. Where do they learn this hate? The one on the left’s parents clearly instilled her with the drive to strive which is amazing, but in some strange irony she seems to feel that no one else is capable of achieving and thus justified in forcibly mitigating the success of others like herself. Rather than seeing a problem and applying her own self realized solution, she wants to take other people’s money and throw it at people she feels are incapable of achieving anything. That’s some serious contempt for people in lesser circumstances.

These two ooze disdain for people less educated than themselves and real hatred for others like themselves who have achieved great things.

Socialism is a mental disorder.

BrideOfRove on September 26, 2009 at 12:35 PM

Just to simplify.

Hannity: If I can do it anyone can do it with hard work and a little luck.

Socialist: Of course I can achieve anything but I’m special and the are millions who will never amount to anything so “we” must take from the rich and take care of all these stupid, lazy poor people.

The “stupid lazy poor people” – for the most part, are more inspired by Hannity’s story. Every person who falls – if you look carefully – you will see it was probably because the government hit them with some mandate of some unintended consequence of a law or tax that set them back.

BrideOfRove on September 26, 2009 at 12:46 PM

Uh, they said they were students in Pittsburgh. Evergreen is in Olympia. My youngest just graduated from there; she is definitely not a “moron.” No “coarses” there, but plenty of “courses.” And yeah, it’s ultra-liberal, but aren’t they all?

n0doz on September 26, 2009 at 1:10 PM

I’m with those that chalk this stupidity up to youth. I thought like this as well until I was a junior in college and my Uncle said to me, “I want you to listen to this guy named Rush for just a week and let me know what you think”. In all my years in college I had simply never been exposed to conservative thought. Follow up on these two in ten years and you may find they have matured to become conservatives like so many of us have to, the hard way.
On a side note, I bet when these two enter the working world, they won’t want to settle for job paying less than $50,000.00 a year. After all, isn’t that why they went to college?

MichiganMatt on September 26, 2009 at 1:18 PM

Hannity should have asked these morons what they do for a living. How much money they make. What they do with their money. What property they own. Where do they buy their clothes. Are they hungry? Thirsty?
As for profit??? What is profit?? Does a college prof get a profit from her paycheck????
Anyone who is earning a paycheck and has money left over after paying for rent and groceries has just made a profit. Oh,, how about this?? Why stop at our borders??? Lost of people in Central America living off of 50 bucks a month. Pretty hard to tell those peasants that mom and dad are poor on 10,000. a year, nice house and plenty to eat when down south a family of 18 lives in a stick hut!
And if mom and dad are just living on $10,000 a year,, what is this rich college professor doing to help out mom and dad??!!
Hannity could have done better, I think. They were controlling the argument more.

JellyToast on September 26, 2009 at 2:36 PM

Near the end there… I’m wondering if she was saying that her whole family, as in all of them; mom, dad, aunts, uncles, grams and pop… have not made it beyond earning $10,000 a year (that’s what it sounded like to me). Really?

Please… Me thinks she does lie a bit.

2080 hrs in a 40 hr a wk year. So they are all being paid less than $5.00/hr. None of them learned how to be worth more than that as an employee?

She is right then that she is lucky to be where she is (in the PhD department, or something), because people who are as ill-equipped to succeed as her blood kin are… without capitalism and it’s benefits, use to end up as galley slaves or as wolf bait.

Truth be told, I bet her family is doing just about the same as yours and mine. Some good, some better than that, and a few struggling.

Plus I just want to point out that they both were fairly well dressed… I wonder what brand of toothpaste they use?

RalphyBoy on September 26, 2009 at 3:48 PM

This is a surprise?

applebutter on September 26, 2009 at 3:57 PM

I saw these two naive dimwits on Hannity last night. Leave it to those who don’t pay taxes to vie for “people redistributed wealth” which, when asked WTF that is, said “taxes.”

These kids need a civics lesson and a job.

redfoxbluestate on September 26, 2009 at 4:08 PM

I would say after 4-5 beers they both graduate to “kind-of” hot.

RobCon on September 26, 2009 at 4:17 PM

Re: Parents living on $10k a year. First off – BS. Second – I would not be at all surprised to hear that their parents lied to them. A kid like that would not hesitate to kill off their parents for an early inheritance.

BrideOfRove on September 26, 2009 at 4:21 PM

I hope these girls end up meeting one of the rioting punks, fall in love and end up supporting this loser for the next 20 years because that is what they deserve.

RobCon on September 26, 2009 at 4:42 PM

Contempt?

It gets to me when you say you feel “contempt for these two imbeciles”, AP. It’s not as if Hannity eloquently debunked them with a persuasive, solid argument (even if one does exist). He used emotional rhetoric, just as they did and just as you and many on here are doing. People’s minds are able to be changed, but it generally doesn’t start with empty ridicule and, worse, expression of hatred for those who may be misguided.

EarthToZoey on September 26, 2009 at 5:10 PM

Products of a classical liberal education!

chickasaw42 on September 26, 2009 at 5:14 PM

Make them work and pay for that education, then go back and talk to them in about 2 years, like night & day!

EarthToZoey on September 26, 2009 at 5:10 PM

Yes contempt. And Hannity trested them quite fairly. Its their simple minds that betrayed them.

Andy in Agoura Hills on September 26, 2009 at 6:12 PM

This video proves several facts about “college”:

1. In America, universities are interested in “diversity” more than intellect or truth.

2. A PhD student in English is a waste of time. No wisdom was on display at all.

3. Universities clearly do not teach American values.

4. The two morons went to a PRIVATE EXPENSIVE school and are complaining about the distrbution of wealth? Have they no sense of irony?

Andy in Agoura Hills on September 26, 2009 at 6:18 PM

JellyToast on September 26, 2009 at 2:36 PM

Agree – Hannity wasn’t terrible, but at some crucial moments he just didn’t figure out where to zing ’em.

Kind of like the woman on the Great Am. Panel who was attempting to ridicule any alarmism over the Obama song indoctrination spectacle. Pat Caddell handled it much better than he did. Hannity kept mentioning “if it was Ronald Reagan…” but didn’t mention the policy positions that gave the ghost away, nor gave any analogous examples, i.e. “Would anyone in the media have tolerated it if children had been coached to sing songs like…”

“Mmm mmm mmm
Saddam Hussein Osama”

(oops let me start over)

“Mmm mmm mmm
Ronald Wilson Reagan –
We will work and we will toil
To put those Pershings on your soil
Mmm mmm mmm…
Controllers you can take a hike
Because we’re gonna bust your strike
Mmm mmm mmm…
And an Eins Zwei Drei for SDI”

etc.

Products of a classical liberal new-fangled progressive education!

As someone who comments semi-regularly at best myself it’s always a pleasure to see a comment from you Andy.

2. A PhD student in English is a waste of time. No wisdom was on display at all.

Andy in Agoura Hills on September 26, 2009 at 6:18 PM

Heck, not only don’t universities teach American values, many don’t even show neutrality toward American values, don’t allow them to go unmolested anymore.

No sense of irony. For the meritocracy should naturally be allowed to go to the most expensive schools imaginable, all on someone else’s dime, because that’s the only just outcome for members of the Aristocracy of Intent like her.

RD on September 26, 2009 at 6:53 PM

u got more than me so u gotta give me sum!

Alden Pyle on September 26, 2009 at 9:26 PM

It’s just too bad that Hannity has such a gift for talking past people. He wastes one teachable moment after another.
sigh.

wkgdyw on September 26, 2009 at 9:45 PM

Cue Hank Williams Jr. song –

Why do the best looking girls have real ugly friends?

fossten on September 27, 2009 at 8:34 AM

I listened to these two being interviewed by Hannity.

Typically listening to young college students are really unfair. Because they’re so removed from the realities of life, and the eventual rewards of hard work…if they decide to finally go to work. Sadly, schools don’t teach that nothing in life is free, and that anything of value must be earned.

byteshredder on September 27, 2009 at 11:35 AM

Nice try Lord Hannity…YOU PAID THESE TWO PERHAPS TO STAGE SOME KIND OF PHONY PROTEST THEN INTERVIEW THEM! UNLIKE THIS VIDEO SHOWING HOW IT REALLY IS DONE!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akwjAjcQnqM

And I HIGHLY DOUBT those two were a part of this protest…
WHICH WAS A PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY TELLING THE ROGUE COPS IN PITTSBURGH POSSE COMITATUS AND THE 1ST AMENDMENT WERE VIOLATED! WHAT IS GOING ON IN THIS VIDEO IS AN EXAMPLE OF INTIMIDATION…SIMILAR TO THE BLACK PANTHERS AT VOTING STATIONS…DON’T YOU GLOBAL SLAVES GET IT?

BobAnthony on September 25, 2009 at 10:29 PM


Yes indeed… America under Obama sure is anti-freedom. You nailed it.

But you forget to mention OBAMA… Cause, Hannity has no police you know… Obama wants his own ‘civilian army’… or at least he has said he does… And to what use may ask? (I know I do)(You didn’t clap when he speechified about that did you?)…

Jackboots in America under Obama. Sad.

RalphyBoy on September 27, 2009 at 6:14 PM

This reminds me of something my kid used to watch called “veggie tales”

What I saw in that video was two vegetables trying to argue with hannity.
