Leo Terrell on Hannity (Anyone Listening to This?)
Hannity ^ | 7/13/2004 | Pyro7480

Posted on 07/13/2004 1:17:54 PM PDT by Pyro7480

Anyone hear this short conversation between Leo Terrell, Sean Hannity, and some NYC councilman who said he would like to slap a white man so he could feel better? The councilman hung up, and Terrell is on Hannity's side!

Let me guess, that NYC Councilman was none other than leftist radical Charles Barron?

I heard part of the exchange just before the time he hung up. Great GOP campaign ad material.

I forget what exactly he is "famous" for. Sean said he is a friend of O.J. Simpson. There is no love lost between him and the NAACP though. He came to a defense of a black Bush judicial nominee, and the NAACP told Leo he was "off the plantation" on this, and since then, he has not liked the NAACP.

I turned it off. The DNC talking points were a bit too obvious.

I as thinking about Leo earlier when responding to a NAACP thread. Leo (had) a longstanding relationship with the ACLU. Then he made the mistake of supporting a Bush judicial nominee. The ACLU made it very clear that they don't support conservative ideals and blackballed Terrell.

Barron's run for NYC mayor will be what gets Bloomberg re-elected. Baron won't win the primary, but his presence alone will scare enough people into sticking with Bloomberg.

From The Washington Times:

A prominent black civil rights lawyer from California quit the NAACP this week after a disagreement with the group over his support of one of President Bush’s judicial nominees. After Leo Terrell appeared at a news conference last week in support of a nominee being blocked by Democrats, two officials of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People telephoned him and tried “bullying” him over his position, he said. “They were trying to make me goose-step with them,” said Mr. Terrell, who joined the NAACP 13 years ago and has done free legal work for the group. “I felt embarrassed to call myself a member of the NAACP. I was proud to quit.” But Hilary O. Shelton, director of the NAACP’s Washington office, said he called Mr. Terrell simply to advise him against billing himself as an “NAACP lawyer.” “He’s not an NAACP lawyer, not even a former NAACP lawyer,” Mr. Shelton said. “He’s done volunteer work for us, which we appreciate. “But when he takes a position that is diametrically opposite from our position, he’s not speaking for us,” he said. Mr. Terrell, based in Beverly Hills, specializes in civil rights and discrimination cases. He is the author of a book titled “Your Rights at the Workplace: The Things Your Boss Won’t Tell You.” He also hosts a radio talk show about legal issues and current affairs on KABC-AM in Los Angeles. His profile on the station’s Web site describes him as an attorney for the NAACP. His dispute with the NAACP comes after Mr. Terrell took a public stance in favor of California Judge Carolyn Kuhl, Mr. Bush’s nominee to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Judge Kuhl is strenuously opposed by Democrats and is expected to become the fourth Bush nominee filibustered in the Senate. “She’s fair, she’s impartial,” said Mr. Terrell, who tried a case before her three years ago. “That’s all I ever want from a judge.”

He is about as liberal and outspoken as one can get. He blasted Cosby when he recently made the statement about black parents being more accountable.

He asked Sean what crediblity does Cosby and who is he to preach to others when he cheated on his own wife? Unfortunately, Sean didn't respond with "Does that mean that Bill Clinton, Jesse Jackson and Martin Luthor King fit in that category too?

He may be - but he seems to be on the side of right today.

If I were black, I would be highly offended by the notion that my skin colour should mean I can only adhere to one ideology. I suspect much of Mr. Terrell's explosion has to do with a righteous anger at that supposition.

I actually first met Leo Terrell in high school--1985, in Los Angeles, CA (Westchester High, near LAX International Airport). I didn't like him much then, for my own reasons, and I notice that he does scream a lot.

I didn't know about his dealing with one of President Bush's nominees...I'm glad to see him on Sean's side about this (and frankly, on the right side), and that Leo is agreeing that W made the right decision not to go to the NAALCP Convention. Although, I wonder if it's more of the NAALCP trying to tell him what to do, than for any other reason.

So yes, I have met Leo Terrell, I disagree with him about as often as he disagrees with Hannity, in fact I think this is the first thing with which I've agreed with Leo, since high school. As for the original caller, I think he got the Hannity version of a "flame", or a "ZOT" (actually, he did it to himself, so I don't know if we could say he was "flamed").

Leo Terrell

You may remember him as the Civil Rights lawyer who was all over t.v. during the O.J. fiasco.

Leo Terrill is a lawyer who is semi hysterical at all times...He made a name for himself in the OJ Simpson trial by being a "talking head" friend of OJ's....He can drive one to drink.

Leo reminds me of Alan Dershowitz in a lot of ways. On most issues I'm a polar opposite from Dershotitz, but his beliefes on fighting terrorism, and treatment of POWs are amazingly conservative.

He's a black civil rights attorney and activist known mostly for his propensity to erupt in fits of barely controlled anger.

Leo is a black lawyer who yells a lot. He supports one of President Bush's judge nominations that the NAACP does not want, so he has basically left that organization.

There are actually two men remaining on the line with Sean. One is Terrell, and the other is an apologist for every evil thing the NAACP has ever said.

This is not the first time for Charles Barron.

The real question here is why Hannity continues to give losers like this air time?

I've said it before, I am saying it now and I suspect I will say it again, Sean Hannity is nothing more than a useful idiot.

Don't waste your time listening to him.
