Richard Belzer Unloads a ‘Heil Hannity’ Salute on Fox News (Richard Belzer "BELCHER")
NewsBusters.org ^ | Tim Graham

Posted on 02/21/2009 10:22:26 AM PST by SandRat

Sean Hannity invited radical-left actor Richard Belzer to his "Great American Panel" on February 13, and Belzer was hardly returning the honor. After Belzer tried to play professor and suggest that Reaganism was Hobbesian and "antitheticallly opposed" to John Locke and Jefferson, he raised his hand to interrupt, and then decided to offer his other arm in a "Heil Hannity" salute. When will lefties stop comparing conservatives to Nazis? Here's how Belzer greeted Sean's discussion of the "We're All Socialists Now" cover of Newsweek:

SEAN HANNITY: The headline is we're all socialists. This is the single biggest spending bill in the history of this country, transfer of wealth to the government.

RICHARD BELZER: Right.

I made it a rule, long time ago, to NEVER watch ANYTHING with either Hanoi Jane, Geraldo or “Suck My” Richard Beltzer.

He is a total waste of oxygen.

I remember him once bragging about how many newspapers he read, so that made him an expert on whatever the topic was at the time.

Hannity would be better off forgetting about the celebrity morons his producers drag up for that panel and get three real human being average Americans to sit in. There’s only 300,000,000 to chose from.

Nazis were socialists. Belzer is a socialist. No wonder he is giving Nazi salutes.

The Hobbesians believe, as you know, that people are basically fearful and need an authoritative government to control them.

And Liberals believe that people are basically stupid and they need the elite, need government to take care of them. This Richard guy is the "hobbesian"

Liberals are so stupid they don't even recognize their own agendas, their own thoughts as socialist. They are people who purport to be compassionate and sensitive and in reality are selfish and clueless.

Of course it’s idiotic the left are more like NAZI’s (though I would never compare them). He’ seems like a babish Hippie type that can’t get over his’ 60’s hangups (and no I don’t know who he is, just saying that it’s older lefties that usually do this-professor types).

I don’t care for the the new format of Hannity’s show. Too cartoonish, and I don’t like the panels he gets. I’d much rather see him tone it down a bit and do it solo, conducting interviews, giving commentary, and reporting insider news with no input from others (other than interviews). I’d love to see Mark Levin get a show on Fox, but still keeping his radio show. He’s always been my favorite.

Never make that assumption. They are counting on useful idiots to follow them. And there seems no lack of them these days.

...absolutely! Conservatives have had it with the “philosophical meanderings” of these Marxists waste of space. What’s happening to our country is not a matter of “opinion”. It’s a matter of right from wrong. He should be discussing how we can take our country back with people who WANT to stay free and sovereign. American Patriots! Not b hussein water carriers!

Tony Danza was on there the other night, and he seemed as far left as Belzer. I recall seeing his name on some of those conservative celebrity lists. Guess he put that to bed.

I started listening to Mark Levin on Sirius radio. He sure doesn't mince words and I admire him for that.

This was probably his high career point, the 1975 cult hit The Groove Tube. Featured Chevy Chase before SNL, and was a precursor to the low budget assembled short comedy skits as a movie trend.

I saw that episode...Belzer clearly wanted to create “a moment” and take on Sean, and as a result he cut off and interrupted the other panelists. He came off as rude and incoherent. I don’t know much of him, but I believe that may be his general demeanor.

Sean’s “Great American Panel” is a highlight of the show in those episodes I have seen, but will cease to be so if he keeps inviting people that do not intend to add any meaningful comments and make it about them (like that dope Gilbert Gottfried).

comparing conservatives to Hitler?!?!

Hitler was a pagan, a vegetarian, A socialist, A utopian. He surrounded himself with gays. He thought schools should indoctrinate kids and that only his believes should be allowed in the media. Obviously Hitler was a liberal Democrat. May I also remind people that Mussolini started out as a socialist and started his Fascist party from the socialist party.

I have to slightly correct you, as I corrected people who said some of John McCain's moves made him seem clueless. McCain was clueless, his moves revealed that. Dittos with Belzer. While he came off as rude and incoherent, it revealed his personality. He came off as himself.

Agree with your observations, though.

True. The liberal elites know what they are doing is socialist but the everyday run of the mill liberal idiot, aka useful idiot, doesn’t have a clue. They fall for the liberal linguistics and spout “fairness” and “change” and have no idea what it means.

You wouldn't think it, but John Gibson has a great talk show. His talk show is far, far better than his show on Fox.

Lately, he's been confronting the idea that Obama can't be criticized around African Americans because of his race and the conversations he has on the subject have been truly eye-opening.

His style of direct engagement of a topic is perfect for talk radio.

One problem with calling conservatives Nazis.

Nazis referred to the National Socialists party.

Conservatives favor small federal government.

So obviously the DemocRAT party is a better match.

He’s a detective on Dick(less) Wolf’s oh, so liberal L&O SVU. But how many real-life policemen oppose the death penalty, decry gun rights, support radical organizations and are so anti-life that they call a fetus “the product of conception”? A walking “Picture of Dorian Gray” indeed, the personification of evil!

Levin is my hero — he really calls it as he sees it and is so super smart. Best three hours of radio here in Los Angeles for my money! So glad he replaced Al Rantel, seriously. I was missing Larry Elder but Levin is a terrific replacement.

Not sure if Belzer is still married to a woman I went to high school with or not — she was in all the theater arts plays and such, pretty girl, and went into soft porn “work” for awhile after graduation from what I heard.

Perfect for Belzer, yes?

After replacing Larry Elder, Al Rantel’s time spot was moved from 3 p.m. in Los Angeles to around 6. Now he’s off altogether but only because of his health. Not the cancer again — something about a hip or leg issue that has given him grief. He’ll be back...

Levin, however, is on from 3 to 6 p.m. in LA now and doing a fabulous job of getting the truth out.

I don't quite get why Hannity insists on dragging in old has been stars. He had Tony Danza on the show. What an aging loser he is.

I liked his character on Homicide: Life in the Streets, and so I watched a solo comedy show that he did. The so-called comedy was nothing but the typical anti-Bush, anti-conservative, anti-"war" ranting, that is heard these days as reflexive speech by so many leftists. He really is an arrogant snob, with nothing to feel superior about.

I saw Danza, agree he sucked big time... personally, I like what Glenn Beck says — “they told me we are fair and balanced and I need to give the other side, I told them I don’t represent either side, I represent America and will have on guests who represent what I want to present about America and it’s problems”... or something to that effect... I say — GO GLENN!

You know, I can handle someone who is arrogant. A certain amount of arrogance is OK, as long as they can back it up.

Being stupid can be overcome with education and the spirit to learn.

But those three individuals I listed are both arrogant and stupid to the ULTIMATE degree and THAT is a combination I cannot stomach.
