Rude Democrat Peter Johnson Jr. keeps cutting off Coulter in Hannity debate
Examiner ^ | November 18, 2010 | Marc Schenker

Posted on 11/18/2010 4:20:15 AM PST by Suvroc10

Rude Democrat Peter Johnson Jr. keeps cutting off Coulter in Hannity debate. On last night’s Hannity, the top story was a discussion of the insanely invasive TSA screening procedures, so what better guest to have on than Ann Coulter to tell it like it is? Her debate opponent? Democrat Peter Johnson Jr., a lawyer and a familiar face to anyone who’s been watching Fox News Channel for the longest time, seeing as how he’s been providing mostly legal analysis for the network since 1997. However, a funny thing occurred—as it does with all Democrats, it seems—when the debate about the TSA screening process inevitably turned to profiling Arabs and Muslims: Johnson Jr. turned into a hostile, rude and harassing aggressor, refusing to let Coulter get a word in as the "debate" progressed.

I saw this and am so glad you posted it. What was nauseating was how wimpy Sean Hannity did nothing to control Peter.

Makes you wonder if Hannity, perhaps the least talented debater on air, wanted Coulter, one of the most, to get taken down a notch. Just sayin...

We rarely watch Hannity, but happened to see Coulter as we scanned channels and usually enjoy her. However, this ugly little man kept shouting and interrupting her while Hannity sat there like a mute. We switched channels. If Fox keeps this up, they won’t top the ratings long.

Hannity does the same thing on his radio show to the point that I can’t stand to listen to him...Why didn’t he shut his mike off? The guy wouldn’t shut up...

This TSA thing is unreal.

I’m a physician. I suggest everyone read about these scanners. There is some evidence that they do disrupt your DNA. Maybe they don’t, but I’m not chancing it. I went through one of those a couple weeks ago, and afterwards the guy still pats me down with the back of his hand.

I will NOT go through those scanners again.

This is totally rediculous. Have you ever traveled to Europe? They’re watching you from the time you check your bags....

They have you profiled.

Midway airport in Chicago is the worst of them all. It will take one hour to go through security on a light day.

They have the technology to scan our eyes....why not issue frequent safe travelers a prescreened security pass. You simply go through an eye check that verifies who you are and your background?

We are no safer now than we were ten years ago.

I listened to Hannity a few times on the radio. When he got an intelligent caller from the left most times he seemed to aggressively miss the point and always came off sounding dense and unable to understand just what the caller was saying. I could not listen to him continually being bested by leftist callers, not because they had better logic, but because Hannity always missed the point.

No, I thinks it’s the case that he stepped down from Chief of the Washington news bureau. He also gave up his chair on the 6:00 report, turning it over to Brett Baier. He still contributes to Fox but I think he’s moved into semi-retirement.

I didn’t know this character’s name, but he has been instant mute button material for years, as he was last night. Caught enough of it listening to Coulter to know what was going on, and he was a total jerk and smart ass. Stop listening to any of it about half way through.

Got you. I tend to agree, but you can’t get an intelligent debate on that show sometimes.

Kristin Powers is the world’s worse though esp when she happens to be hosting.

I’m traveling early on Thanksgiving Week, but I expect to be going thru security Atlanta early and delays. I plan NOT to go thru the scanners. I believe I have that right.

Has anyone opted out of being scanned? If so, what happened?

I saw it. It was horrible. All Hannity had to do was say, “please stop”.

Hannity has made several apologetic statements about the TSA policy. To me, the guy frequently places himself on the wrong side of the establishment vs. the people battle.

In addition to Johnson being flat-out rude (when the right buttons are pressed, liberal pukes ALWAYS show their true colors) I just couldn’t wrap my brain around the way the guy is thinking.

It’s not only okay for kids, women and innocent people to be felt up by whoever the Government says (and seemingly fined $11,000 if you decline to agree), this nimrod is firmly convinced this is a GOOD thing.

We truly live in two Americas... and one of them has completely lost touch with reality.

Because the point of it is humiliation and to get the population used to that kind of government treatment. It also effectively trashes certain provisions of the Constitution will be expanded to the general population with aggressive molestation at random roadblocks and such in due time. These machines are apparently already showing up in courthouses. They will come to schools eventually. This is a totalitarian society's response to foreign threat. Israel's response is aimed at safety for flying. The American approach is aimed at humiliating and intimidating the population. It is NOT designed to catch terrorists. That is only the excuse. Consider that burka clad presumed women are apparently exempt- Napolitano refused to answer a question about that. One can hide a lot of ordnance under a burka. Actually It would be advantageous to the government if a bomb got by TSA (perhaps in a burka) and dropped a plane. That would ramp up the TSA/SS/KGB approach tremendously.

Netjets. Hannity has already mentioned that private option. He may not have Rush’s fleeet of jets, but it seems he does fly private carrier.

Many in the paid class of talkers and commentators seem to take the “Let them eat cake,” that being the cake of indecency, indignity and debasement, and for we have not any due of the bread of decency and respect in their eyes, viewing us from their lofty eyres.

I said the same thing back during the first Gulf War. I was flying commercial several times a week back then. The big security illusion back then was checking your bomb, er, uh, I mean bag at the curb.

The latest rage amongst mooselimb suicide bombers is to insert the bomb into the anal orifice. This was already done in Saudi recently. These full body scanners won't detect bombs inside the body. "Anal bombs" are what is coming, but the TSA is insistent on spending tens of millions of dollars on these full body scanners (thanks to Skeletor, AKA Chertoff who now represents the company who manufactures them).

If you want to see how real security is supposed to be done, not a security illusion like we get from our glorious TSA, travel to Israel.

In the immortal words of little Tommy Daschle "You can't professionalize unless you Federalize!"

I won’t watch any program that has him on, it was disgusting and the little worm thought he was being so cute. Hannity allowed it, that was even more disgusting and I’m not a Hannity basher. I was very surprised to see how little he can control his own program.

Who attacked our Nation and killed 4,000 civilians?
The Amish or Muslims?
Who is waging war all across the globe trying to destroy Western Civilization and plunge the world back to the 7th century Danes or Muslims?
Who straps nail bombs onto women to blow up buses of children? Koreans or Muslims?
Who kills their own daughters because they “feel” dishonored by them? Christians or Muslims?
So who do we search at airports?
Christians Danes Koreans and the Amish..........

I saw this as well. I hate the normal combative "talking over" debates. However, this was so obviously over the top and intentional it was disgusting. The fact that Hannity did nothing was a defacto statement on his part.

Thank you so much for posting! After watching this — kept waiting for Sean to cut the a-hole’s mic — I switched channels. WTF was Sean thinking?! Ann should’ve walked off, and I’ll be truly disappointed in her if she every goes on his show again.

I stopped watching the show when the “Great Great Great American Panel” tempted me to throw something at the expensive TV. He used to have (maybe still does) at least one token dim bulb celebrity whose idiocy was actually embarrassing. With this airport search fiasco happening, I decided to tune in last night. I’ve learned my lesson.

The libs’ MOA is to filibuster, and they ALL do it. They have no good ideas, so the default mode is to thwart the audience from hearing the other side. It’s pathetic, really, that they know for sure that their platform is bad, yet they hold on.

We are considerably LESS safe than we were 10 years ago. TSA refuses to rpofile moslems and now the terrorists have one of their own in the White House.

Until we get rid of the terrorist in chief and start getting the plague of islam out of our airports we will not be safe.

Thanks for posting this.

I was warming up to Johnson thru his appearances on Fox & Friends, but this video has awakened me to his liberalism, his lies, as well as his bad manners.

We have all seen the pictures of nuns & children being groped, yet he specifically said this was not happening. LIAR!

Which is better: Violating the rights of everyone, or violating the rights of a few? Which is worse: Sexually assaulting women, children, & the elderly, or profiling a group of people with a propensity for terrorism?

If we allow this to continue, we will suffer these police state practices everywhere we go: buses, trains, courthouse, mall - everywhere. And they will get worse & worse, until, like in jail, we will be forced to strip, bend over & grab our ankles, & cough.

I, for one, will avoid air travel in protest, but if I do have to fly, I will opt out of the xray & submit to the grope.

That was awful. I saw it too and thought it was disgusting. It surprised me to see him behave like that. Maybe he owns stock in the x-ray machines too. How in the world did Deepok Chopra become involved with xray machines at the airport? I wish Ann could have elaborated more on that.

Hannity is in a bind here. He has been told to get as many demolibs on as he can and with their bias against appearing on Fox, there are few of them. That has led to his, and others, kowtowing to them. Ann has few venues except on Fox so she has to put up with it or not be on at all.

That said, he should have pulled the plug on the twerp after Ann asked him to do it so she could make her point the third time.

My wife left the room when the jerk kept talking over Ann. She said to me I cannot stand that show because they have people talking over each other most of the time. I rarely watch now too depending on the news of the day I tune in. After this fiasco, I switched him off and watched the rerun of 5-0 from Monday. Maybe McGarret can find the Birth Certificate!

The thing that doesn’t make sense about this is that we are not less safe today than 10 years ago, than 20 years ago, than 50 years ago. Shouldn’t these x-rays & gropings been put into place 6 or 7 years ago? Right after 9/11?

How could there be more threat today than 5 years ago?

The ONLY thing different is our enemies know that IF they did succeed with a terrorist attack this administration would NOT retaliate - and that is what puts us in more danger.

When Bush was President the terrorists clearly understood that Bush would not sit back and let any attack go unanswered with military action.

Rather than examinine the bodies of free citizens, we need to examine Obama and his intentions for this country.

I fly a lot and have been lucky to avoid any problems this week. Next week may be different. They do plan to have police stationed at all the check points in all the cities I fly out of.

Go early, especially if you’re flying through a busy place like Atlanta.

There are two types of scanners. One of them, I don’t remember which, emits more radiation than the other. However, I doubt if the TSA will be calibrating them with the same degree of competency that would occur at a hospital. Thus, I’d suggest opting out.

The TSA I have spoken with seem to bepretty uncomfortable about it all - with the exception of one very loud, bitchy young agent in Boston the other day. She carried on in a very loud voice how she couldn’t go anyway on Thanksgiving so anybody who opts out of the xray won’t be going anywhere either.

Again, go very early. The airlines have overbooked all their flights so they’ll be bumping anybody not there when they start loading.

I do not know or care if Peter Johnson is a Dimokrat or not. He is an idiot, and last night he was spouting the ruling class liberal PC line of bull right down to every last detail.

I have never seen this liberal side of him before, but then again, he is so mentally challenged (as is the entire Fox and Friends crew) that I rarely watch him. He is not ready for prime time. Never will be. He’s a joke.

Facts are nasty things, which must be contained by the left. Let’s be honest, and Hannity should’ve intervened, that the sole reason he (the dem) would not let her speak is because...should anybody know the truth, there’d be a huge backlash from this and a quick cease and desist from the public. So, the truth must not come out, no matter what you have to do to prevent it. This is not honest discourse, and Hannity should be blamed for allowing one side to control everything.

To Shery, the problem with your theory in this particular situation, which is often correct — is that Hannity came back in the next segment and made many of the points Ann was trying to make.

I think he knew that, and allowed Peter to talk over her so she could not steal his thunder (or whatever it is he has).

LOL...the best ones are the calls in which the caller agrees with Hannity and is trying to build upon or reinforce a point Hannity made. Somehow Sean perceives this as a disagreement and proceeds to argue with the caller. I've heard it happen any number of times.
