Sean Hannity, Asshole of the Day for April 22, 2014
By The Daily Edge
Sean Hannity loves to play the good Catholic. For example, he’s happy to talk about Jesus washing his disciples’ feet. And he loves to talk about the need for Christians to “serve others.”
Of course, the Lord Hannity draws the line at the idea that HE would ever wash anyone’s feet. He’s NOT that good a Catholic, hahaha.
But where he really loses the plot is with the idea that the Government should do anything to help feed the poor. After all, we’ve heard from Reaganomists like Hannity for 30 years that tax cuts for the rich would trickle down and we won’t need no stinking Uncle Sugar to feed us and we shouldn’t expect to rely on Medicare when we get older, either.
Of course, the facts, don’t actually bear that out. We now know that Reaganomics have destroyed the middle class and made America’s poor WORSE off than many of those socialist, vacation-loving European countries. (That story’s here: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/23/upshot/the-american-middle-class-is-no-longer-the-worlds-richest.html?_r=2 )
To Hannity, the biggest sin you can make as a Catholic is to become a nun like Sister Simone Campbell, devote your life to studying the Bible, and then actually try to be like Jesus and speak up for the poor. Because if you do all that, then, like a good Catholic, you’d have to denounce Paul Ryan’s reverse-Robin-Hood plan to gut $5.3 TRILLION from programs to help the poorest Americans, while handing $4.3 TRILLION in tax cuts to the already rich.
In Hannity’s sick, twisted mind that qualifies you as a communist. This guy’s the epitome of a religious hypocrite. And a total asshole.
