Rap Is Worse Than The Confederate Flag?!

The Confederate flag has been seen as a symbol of racism for a long time … and Sean Hannity is saying rap music is, too! Good ol' Sean Hannity we can always count to him to seize an opportunity to say something outrageous and stupid.

Hannidy is one of the most outspoken race hustlers in America, and his opinions are often insulting, disturbing, and twisted to say the least. The conservative talk show host said on his radio show Thursday that if the Confederate flag is getting taken down, rap and hip-hop should get taken off the airwaves.

His reasoning: artists like Jay-Z and 50 Cent use the n-word in their lyrics, and that is a racist term.

Hannity calls out Jay Z's wife Beyoncé , too, saying that her use of the word "bitch" is misogynistic. 

Last time I checked, Jay-Z's words didn't incite a civil war or inspire mass church shootings. Of course Hannity and those of his ilk cannot follow their usual format and demonize the victims because they were all in church reading the bible at the time that they were murdered. But he managed to come of with what he thinks as a comparable defense that is totally incomparable. What Hannidy doesn't realize is that many of the hate groups who look to the confederate flag as a symbol of pride would hate him because of his Irish heritage.

Hannity, even went so far as to even take a dig at President Obama and his daughters:

 "If it's OK for Obama's teenage daughters and people to go into these stores and buy music chock-full of the N-word, the B-word, well maybe we should consider banning that too. We're in the process of banning everything."

If only we could ban his propagandist rhetoric. Unfortunately Hannity is protectedy by the same right to free from of speech as Jay and Beyoncé.
