Support the troops!
Sean Hannity is always ready, willing and able to call anyone who questions the Bush administrations decision to go to war in Iraq a traitor.
He is always the first to scream, “You don’t support our troops!” when anyone suggests that American soldiers ought to be removed from prosecuting an impossible-to-win war on a chunk of real estate with little strategic value against people who aren’t, in fact, a threat to the United States.
Sean Hannity, in order to show what a great patriot he is, founded a charity to raise funds to assist the children of soldiers who gave their lives fighting the war from which he derives almost sexual pleasure crowing his unfettered support.
Comes now the revelation that very little of the millions of dollars raised are making their way to those children. Where is the money going? Private planes for Sean Hannity and his family. Expenses. See, it costs millions to raise millions. After all, it’s the thought that counts, right?
In fact, less than 20%-and in two recent years, less than 7% and 4%, respectively-of the money raised by Freedom Alliance went to these causes, while millions of dollars went to expenses, including consultants and apparently to ferret the Hannity posse of family and friends in high style. And, despite Hannity’s statements to the contrary on his nationally syndicated radio show, few of the children of fallen soldiers got more than $1,000-$2,000, with apparently none getting more than $6,000, while Freedom Alliance appears to have spent tens of thousands of dollars for private planes. Moreover, despite written assurances to donors that all money raised would go directly to scholarships for kids of the fallen heroes and not to expenses, has begun charging expenses of nearly $500,000 to give out just over $800,000 in scholarships.
So now, in addition to being a lying, myopic, contorting, twisting, vapid, yammering blowhard who will say anything to push his perspective, facts be damned, we learn that Sean Hannity is not only a thief, but that he steals from the children of dead soldiers.
This ought to surprise no one. It’s goddamn sickening but it’s not surprising. Sean Hannity never gave a rat’s ass about truth, justice, freedom, fairness, or anything else except Sean Hannity. What a putrid piece of shit. I want to punch the living fuck out him…stomp on his face till his teeth come out his eye sockets.
