My Open Letter to Sean Hannity

Dear Sean Hannity,

In my continued effort to hear, and then attempt to understand both sides I have endured your overly conservative radio talk show for eight months. It has definitely been a ride! At times I was reminded of a time in my life when I had the inability to stomach information that was different from my views and opinions. Those were the days when I would foolishly walk out of a conference or training session where the facilitator uttered oppositions of my mindset. Those days are over, Sean.

Over the years I have forged a shield of intellectual beliefs that are impenetrable. Not even an undercover racist, like you, can frustrate me. But, I must admit that you have been surprisingly informative and thoroughly insightful. I thank you for that. However, you have also been sadly disappointing.

Initially, you did a remarkable job sharing the right-winged spin. Hard-hitting and piercing. The way you intertwined your interpretation of the facts with America’s reality was not only impressive, it was brilliant. Inconsequently, you have been unrelenting with an analysis that’s rooted in white fear, guilt, and self-controlled racism. Controlled in the sense you have yet to call Barack Hussein Obama what your damnation disposition spews: Ni**er.

Without referring to Obama as a light skin House Negro you have been understandably effective at convincing your wealthy, tight-behind, trailer park, and Jesus fanatical Christian followers that Barack Obama is a Black Panther Party radical who is ready to paint America’s Dysfunctional House BLACK. Black in the REAL sense of the word! Black to the point that you along with your steamy red neck followers are fearfully thinking that we (black folk) under the guidance of Fruit of Islam Brother Barack Obama are planning to do what your ancestors did to us.

Not the case, Black America does not have the testicular fortitude or the evil desire to KILL WHITEY. Thankfully we don’t!

Mr. Hannity, haven’t you determined that we are a forgiving people? We, by the grace of God and with a little naivety, have moved from the seat you sit in. We discovered a long time ago it was not beneficial to be hate-filled. Unlike you, Sean, your hate has consumed you. It has taken over your spirit, and I am not amazed that the networks you work for have not disarmed you. Taking your microphone would not help anyway. There are too many more like you out there. Like your weak pain killer taking friend, Rush!

If I am coming across as hateful, forgive me. I have been listening to hate for eight months, remember?

Each and every time I press 1 on my radio at 4PM Eastern, I get Sean Hannity on 750AM. Your hate seeps through my cheap car speakers. It finds its way into my mental domain. But, I have yet wanted you dead like you appear to want for Barack. I can literally feel your disdain in every word spouted about out next President. It is the level of disgust that boils over when one is about to lose. Lose everything! Lose when one (the white man) is accustomed to winning by any means necessary.

Sean Hannity, I never thought you would look so defeated. You sound so empty. You are pathetic. A sore loser. Where is your loser’s dignity? What a shame. Once respected – but now you are taking yourself to the lowest of lows: ‘Bill Ayers this and Tony Resco that.’ I cannot believe you have allowed yourself to become a broken record. Where is your substance? When you and your Republican cronies have no where else to turn you become hypocrites just like your dead Forefathers e.g. Washington, Jefferson, and including Reagan!

What else do you have to malign Obama besides a so called “friendship with an unrepentant terrorist”? How much longer will you spit Jeremiah Wright flames? Aren’t you tired of trying to connect what cannot be connected?

Desperation has set in. You remind me of a person who has nothing left. Similar to Mike Tyson’s ear biting rage. He was losing and could not deal with it so he behaved like an untamed animal. Sean, you are looking undisciplined. Typically, when one gets to this level of personal disgust he/she is either ready to surrender or to do something additionally stupid. What will it be, Sean?
It’s over. This win is in the bag. Barack Obama some way some how has won over your cousins. The cousins your father’s father would have strung up with the “black apes” just because they displayed some empathy. Remember, Andrew Goodman, the 1964 Freedom Summer Bus Rider? Your friend Ron Savage has a name for these cousins: Ni**er Lovers.

Please don’t kill your cousins, Mr. Hannity. We will need their votes come November 4, 2008 to defeat the big bad war hero. By the way, where I come from one is NOT a hero if one is captured.

You are a Great American, Sean. Just like your slave master kinfolk.

With grace and dignity,

Brian E. Payne

I think we must be related. I've been listening to Hannity, Rush, and Mark Levine... watching Hannity and Allen C for quite some time and Hannity I noticed of late is losing it. He has become more and more exasperated as time goes on and he is on the verge of pulling a Bill O' moment.

Great letter.

Reader Response:

Well written! Also it's great to hear someone like myself are open to listening to the right wing. Often my girlfriend, friends and family ask why you always watching guys like Hannity, Oreilly or Beck?

Reader Response:

OK, I'm laughing, nodding and shaking my head--all at the same time. That's a feat. Great perspective. There's a lot of them about to need resuscitating. Anytime things start happening outside their little square box, they can't handle it. There was a movie some years back where one of the characters says, "you can't handle the truth." That would be Hannity and the rest of the square-box gang.

Wow I love it! You are better than me I can't listen to him, even for just a few minutes. I used to listen to Neal Bortz for a few minutes a day just to hear what "They" are thinking. I feel like you have to keep up when where their thoughts are in order to survive in their world. It's like staying on offence.

Reader Response:

Whoa! Brian, you broke Sean down, like I've never seen or heard. To borrow a line from "Love Jones", you broke it down "so that it can be consistently and forever broken." I was listening to the Hannity show on Tuesday, when he took a call from a young Black man in NC. In typical Hannity fashion, he allowed the young man to talk just long enough to discern enough information to then "spin" and use against him. It upset me to hear the young man struggling so hard to articulate sound reason and intellect to hold his own against someone who appears to be sufficiently innoculated against such rational thinking. At the time, I thought to myself, "boy, would I love to give Sean a piece of my mind!" Well, reading your open letter certainly satisfied my craving to "tear a new a-hole" for Sean.

Thanks for sharing, but more importantly, thanks for showing the courage to speak out on the pathetic spewings of a lunatic.

Reader Response:

Potent. I’m not a Hannity fan at all…so blast away! And Colmes is a weak Democrat representative. I think that they picked him intentionally to make Hannity appear as the better debater.

That show frustrates me.

Reader AE responds to RM:

I hear 'ya. Although I appreciate and share "some" conservative views, I have a strong disdain for people like Sean Hannity and Rush Limbaugh, who are merely exploiting and perpetuating public fear and hate to promote their personal agendas.

Reader Response:

Wow - scathing! I, too, listen to Sean Hannity. I am always suprised at just how hateful he sounds. He has said some terrible things about Obama, Michelle, and even Hillary. He stretches the truth - all in support of his own agenda. You are completely right Brian. If anyone is un-American - it is Sean Hannity. Ready to break down his "fellow" American because they do not agree with is ultra-conservative, ignorant views. I doubt if he even gave Obama a chance. Impressive? Brilliant? LOL I don't think it takes brilliance to repeat ignorant views others have spouted. Anyone can misconstrue facts. It takes brilliance to understand that some different from you could possibly be right. Thank you for the letter Brian. I too have thought about writing to him - but didn't want to waste the effort.

The thing about these conservative talk show host's is there utter lack of knowledge about ANYTHING. They sit up there and spew about politics, policy, foreign affairs, and they are not versed about it at all. The republican party is in shambles. The same folk that the wall street crowd brought into the party to increase their numbers are now taking over the party. Sarah Palin said yesterday, referring to her husband, "It's about time we had a dude in the White House". WTF! They have allowed the stupid to take over the party. This is the beginning of a realignment of the republican party. They are going to have to decide exactly who the party belongs to.

Brian, I was you 4 years ago. I found myself watching Hannity at election time to see what all the fuss was about. WOW. This is a man who is truly unhappy. If you saw the film American Beauty, I totally see him as having some Nazi china somewhere stored away.

But he's very good at what he does (stirring hatred). There are many times where I just wanted to BUST A CAP IN HIS ASS! But, I'm too smart for that. It's the ignorance that burns me. These folks ooze ignorance. There main task is assuring other folks out there that's it's ok to be ignorant too. That they should be PROUD of their ignorance. That those folks that aren't ignorant are "elites" that should be despised.

There IS a reckoning that is coming.

Reader Response:

This is the best! After watching clips of his show, hearing him on the radio then viewing the Youtube clips called "Top 10 Reasons to NOT vote for Obama" -- I was struck by the shear ignorance this man has... See, I can't watch MSNBC all the time. You'd think the Obama already won. You have to watch what the other side is saying/doing.

Anyway, this is a great letter. If you don't mind I want to re-post it on my blog...

Reader Response:

I concur wholeheartedly. I have watched Hannity and Colmes every day as I while I switch between CNN, Fox, and MSNBC after work. What I find most galling is the fact that you can tell he is about a minute from saying "this N*gga*. Everyday something about him irks me but I want to watch just to see what the extreme right position is going to be. Just yesterday the fact that he NEVER mentioned the assasination plot against Obama but instead led with the radio interview from 2001 and continued to hammer his point about associations really made me wish I ran into him in a dark alley. Now mind you I may sound like the angry black man there but like you and others here I have endured his ignorance for an extended period of time so I think it may cause a reaction or two. Great letter!!!

Not that it matters at this point - but it was quite interesting to note/discover that Mr. Hannity neglected to mention the passing of Barack's grandmother during his radio show. It was purposeful. While I skipped from channel to channel to confirm that the report was actually reported by the talk show host over the radio; not surprisingly Sean did not have enough RESPECT to stop his blasting of Barack Obama to give condolences.

Sean is mean-spirited and filled with hatred.

He is out of control.

I wonder if he has any idea that he is gasoline for a racist maniac.
