Hannity Destroys Occupy Organizer In Fiery Segment About Movementís Violence
Mediaite ^ | May 3, 2012 | Meenal Vamburkar

Posted on 05/04/2012 11:01:48 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

On Thursday night, Sean Hannity sat down with Harrison Schultz, an Occupy Wall Street organizer. The segment was confrontational right off-the-bat — with Hannity questioning Schultz about the violence in the movement, and eventually leaving nothing unsaid, offering a fiery “suggestion” to Schultz.

Schultz started off the segment by thanking Hannity for letting a “dirty hippie” come in and express his views, which didn’t sit well the the host, who pointed out he never said anything about being dirty or a hippie. From there, they moved on to Schultz saying Hannity made fun of his “friends.”

Hannity asked, “The ones having sex in public, doing drugs and defecating on cars and breaking store windows, cursing out police approximately all of that? You mean those guys?” The following conversation consisted of Hannity asking questions and not quite getting answers.

He asked Schultz why “a special, protective rape-free zone tent” was set up following the rape that occurred. Hannity asked Schultz for evidence, to which Schultz said The New York Times had reported that the NYPD sent rapists to the park. Schultz said it was a cynical, effective tactic by the authorities. Hannity further asked whether all the violence was a police conspiracy.

We then learned that Schultz is 29, and formerly worked as a a business intelligence analyst, but was laid off. He is currently in graduate school, paid for by student loans. Eventually, the segment came back to a point where Hannity began: what Schultz’s issue is with capitalism. He noted that he saw many protestors with Macs and iPhones. This is capitalism, he said, “You create goods or services that people want, need and desire. Right?” The Occupy movement fits the model, he said.

Schultz said the model is broken. Asked why, he said, “it is failing people, such as myself.” Hannity then told him: “Maybe if you weren’t spending your time with the quote, homeless people who were brought in by the police to rape people, maybe you could have been out looking for a job?”

Hannity pursued his point about Schultz, and those like him, wanting things for free. “Who is going to pay for your house, car, dental care, health care, education, who pays for that?” he asked. Schultz replied, “Nobody! It’s free.”

“You don’t work, you get free money for school, and you’re f***ing complaining and whining,” Hannity started, before finally exploding, offering Schultz a “suggestion”:

You are 29 years old. Stop wasting your time at Occupy Wall Street. Here’s a novel concept, get up at 6:00 a.m., shovel coffee down your throat. Hit the pavement, find a job, stop whining, stop complaining, stop blaming and get your ass out of bed, like everybody else in America, and get to work. How does that sound?

Schultz said to give him a job and he’d go to work. About jobs like a dishwasher or cook being beneath Schultz, Hannity asked, “Hanging out with with rapists, people having sex in public is more fun?”

“It’s more dignity in that than hanging out on a show like this with you,” he replied.

I thought it was a horrible segment. That Occutard maggot didn’t deserve the air time he got. He’s lived over a quarter century and been a parasite all his life. That ridiculous line this clown gave sayind he had worked as a “market reserach analyst for a paper-clip manufacturer” was so easy to grab onto, and Hannity completely missed it.

The entire interview was infuriating and disappointing. Hannity is too slow on the pickup, because he’s always thinking of the next one-line cliche he’s going to parrot, rather than listening to what people are saying and responding directly to that. Rush and half a dozen other talk show types would have dissected every lying word, and torn that parasite a new ‘arse.’

Hannity Destroys Occupy Organizer In Fiery Segment About Movement’s Violence

Apparently collectivism cannot be "destroyed" this side of the Lord's return. For thousands of years in the the history of mankind, the rule has been tyranny. Free societies have been rare exceptions and generally only last about 150 years.

Today, everybody knows that Communist Russia and Communist China were/are failures and socialism is a bankrupt system. Everybody knows America is the freest country in the world and a shining example of the success of free-market capitalism where people risk their lives to come because of freedom of opportunity.

Nevertheless, societies all around the world including America still gravitate towards Socialism. Logic and plain common sense does not dissuade this push. Milton Friedman explains some of the reasons why. He also gives clear and lucid analyses about why socialism is a failed philosophical and economic system.

Relatively short but good lecture:

Yes, the fight for freedom is never ending and we should fight for freedom. But it helps (me at least) to have this thing in perspective.

I agree... though I do like that scrappiness he shows from time to time. One time on his show, in the studio, he called out scumsucking NYC City Council thug Charles Barrons to make good on his wanting to "slap the first white man he saw."

It was great. But I believe Hannity could do so much better. If he could force himselft to be more patient and give guests just a little more room to make stupid comments, he could be more effective.

I wanted him to ask, what should we do instead of capitalism? What is causing capitalism to be “not working anymore?” Let the guy talk and actually address his stupidity.

Hannity seems to have an entire script of what he wants to say that is dependent upon the answers he has predicted his guests will answer. I wish he were less leading (or at least make the leading questions more subtle).

Still, it was nice to see and idiot make a fool of himself.

“Schultz said to give him a job and he’d go to work. About jobs like a dishwasher or cook being beneath Schultz, Hannity asked, “Hanging out with with rapists, people having sex in public is more fun?”

At 17, I was ashamed of my first job. I worked in a steel mill-on midnights, so I never saw my friends who were all out having a ball every night, that summer. When I got home at 7:00 a.m., I was so dirty that my mother wouldn’t let me in the house. I had to undress and bathe in the basememt.

It’s called W O R K!

Schultz: “Nobody! It’s free.”

It was great but it could've been better this way.

Hannity: I've found a great position for you. You have to get up early and work all day doing things you like doing in marketing and managing. Are you interested?
Schultz: Sure! It sounds great! How much does it pay?
Hannity: Nothing! It's free!

I would've loved seeing the putz's face after and exchange like that.

“I had to undress and bathe in the basememt. It’s called W O R K!”

About 50 years ago, as a new college graduate with a BS in Chemical Engineering, I started working in the rubber industry. They began us all working out in the factory doing production jobs as a part of our training. We did everything...ran mixers, mills, calenders, built tires, cured tires etc... One day I came back to the Squad office and was asked if I would work an extra shift...I had been running a black mixer for the previous shift and was pretty well covered in Carbon Black. They made me take a shower and change clothes before letting me go back out for the extra shift assignment.

There are a few jobs out there I would like to see Schultz do, and getting really sweaty and getting covered with carbon black for a shift or two would be just a beginning.

What a sorry piece of excrement this guy is!

and you’re f***ing complaining and whining

I don't think Hannity said that on the air. He might have said "freaking," but nothing worthy of blotting out.

Especially not after the Beckel incident.

They hate capitalism because it is just. It is based on the trader principle that people should not give or receive the unearned, the undeserved, and something for nothing.

I was just listening to this worthless piece of sh*t on Hannity’s radio program, and I am just stunned.

This is one of the most arrogant, obnoxious, annoying human beings I have ever had the displeasure of hearing speak.

Hannity was apparently going to find him a job or try to, but no other person deserves to be subjected to the ****ing ***hole PERIOD.

SCREW HIM, let him starve to death in his own filth. If this guy is representative of the next upcoming generations, this country is sunk, and it ain’t worth saving. Let nature take care of ‘em the hard, slow, agonizing way.

He just had this whiny a$$ed little $h!t on his radio show and pressed him on what he “does” for work and how much he would work for. It was hilarious and infuriating at the same time.

He is in “media analytics”, whatever that is, and the least he would accept annually is $80K. When pressed on what media analytics is, he basically said he checks out the internet, listens to radio, TV is dead, and then writes his interpretation of what others are saying. CRAP! I’m being oppressed (apologies to Monty Python). I do that for free!

Maybe I should be demanding all the free stuff this little basement dweller is demanding.

I guess the difference is I’ve worked, saved, married wisely and been frugal for the past thirty-five years. Heck, if he “deserves” $80K for doing what I do for free, maybe I should start charging $200K for being a “senior consultant”.

If you’ve read this entire post, send me $35 c/o hs@foreward.com (I need new clubs)/sarc.

Better yet, to reduce tax complications please remit whatever you can to FreeRepublic.com. (I don’t want my taxes to go up or invite an audit!)

I wonder what analysis he could do that would be worth $80,000.00 to someone else?

He should do it and use it as a test platform and offer examples of his work to solicit bids.

The interview was ineffective. Rather than personalize it to bad behavior at one locale, and the inept personal life of the guest, a Constitutional Conservative should use such as this as an opportunity to vent this young man’s illusions to teach the value of Capitalism. He sounds like he could have been coaxed into saying Communist slogans, for which not comment is required. Just let him expose himself; attacks are unnecessary.

Personally I have not watched Hannity in years.....got to the point the show was a non stop book promotion....and people like Al Sharpton were given air time to legitimize him as a political spokesman and Sean got quite vacuous at times....

I have to admit that segment was good....Sean didn’t even bend out of place a perfectly placed hair on his head...

I head Hannity talk to the guy on his Friday radio show. Not only did Hannity lie about the guy (said he supported the rapes just after the guy denounced them) Hannity would not let the guy talk. The OWS guy came off as angry and ignorant, but Hannity didn’t shine either. He also took away his job offer.

Yeah, there's another scenario I wish would play out with the interviewer and the OWies.
1. Establish that the OWies really do trespass and occupy banks and other institutions. And after wards leave large amounts of vandalism. If the OWie tries to get out of it , simply say that means "99%" must mean the number of provocateurs in the group so why should anyone else join.
2. Establish that the OWies would also hit other capitalistic business such as high end jewelry stores and SUV dealerships.
Then the fun can begin:

Hannity: So you OWies would also hit small businesses and food cart vendors wouldn't you?
Hippie: No, way. What kind of group do you think we are?
Hannity: Like the rich old coot said to the hot babe who he had just propositioned successfully when he offered her a million bucks but got the same response you just gave when he offered her a dollar. "We've already established what you are , now we are negotiating a dollar amount."

I know it was long but I hope it gave you a chuckle.
