Sean Hannity gave a long monologue on Monday, calling on the "destroy Trump establishment media to start recognizing how they have a massive double standard." Hannity said the media is using a "high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically." He accused the media of creating racial tensions to attack people they agree with and to inflict as much damage politically as possible. "It couldn't be more obvious, more transparent who the president was talking about," Hannity said of Trump's Saturday statement. "He was standing for equal justice under the law, against racism. And the press, what did they do? They used a high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically. So predictable." "Now, it was crystal clear what the president was talking about. But the press, they went after him anyway. And the destroy Trump establishment media — they didn't care about the violence, seemingly, or the racial tensions they're creating or the civil unrest as much as they cared about using this tragedy as an opportunity to attack people they disagree with, and in particular, the president, to try and inflict as much damage politically as possible. You know what? Just like they have done since November 8! That's a simple truth," Hannity said. From Monday's broadcast of Hannity on FOX News: SEAN HANNITY, HOST: Welcome to "Hannity." This is a "Fox News Alert." The president condemning yet again in the strongest possible terms the events in Charlottesville, Virginia, the violence and the mayhem. Also tonight, we will analyze the horrific politicizing of these events. That's tonight's very important breaking news "Opening Monologue." All right, what we saw take place in Charlottesville, Virginia, over the weekend — it is disgusting, it is despicable. And it's really hard to imagine in this day and age that there are actually people out there that could do this to their fellow human beings. It's hard to imagine that there are people in this country that have these types of hateful, inexcusable, racist, white supremacist views. And it's also hard to imagine that there are still some people that have that high level of ignorance that, yes, live amongst us. Now, there's no place in this country for these neo-Nazi, fascist, white supremacists. And they — what they stand for should be condemned in the widest terms possible by all good people in this country. What they believe in — it's the complete opposite of what the United States of America stands for, and sadly, we have seen way too much of these kinds of acts over the years. Now, as far as the groups that were involved, the white supremacists, do they have a constitutional right to free speech, regardless of how disgusting and offensive what they say is? Unfortunately, that's how our First Amendment works. Even the American Civil Liberties Union, one of Trump's biggest outspoken critics, they defended the organization this weekend and their right to rally in court. So it's allowed to happen. And then the other groups down there also have the same right to speak out against these evil people. Now, make no mistake, this was all provoked by radical, racist extremists. But the violent clashes should never have happened. Where were the police? Over the last number of years also we have watched extremists on both sides battling it out. We have seen this act too often. It doesn't solve a thing, and it only gives these radicals on both sides more ammo so they can continue to spread their hatred. And what's so repulsive in all of this — we have a woman that died, dozens of fellow human beings injured this week, and over what? A bunch of idiots fighting over stupid, ignorant anti-American views and ideas? Now, instead of covering this horrible situation fairly, openly, honestly, like we're going to do tonight, over the weekend, we saw the destroy Trump establishment media go into a feeding frenzy, trying to assign blame as quickly as possible, and of course to paint the president, all conservatives, all Republicans as racist and bigots. That's not true. These are the exact same tactics we see by the left every two and four years during the election cycles. And we'll have more on that in just a minute. President Trump is not a racist. Conservatives, the conservatives I know, like and love, Republicans I know and like — they're not racist. The country is filled with people that are good, honorable and decent, and that's most conservatives, if not all that I know. Now, I'm not saying — nobody's saying racism doesn't exist. It does exist in this country. It's sad. But if we're going to be fair and honest, this is not exclusive to one particular party. Now, there are racists on both sides in America, but most Americans, what are they? Good, great people. They condemn racism. They get up every morning, they work hard, play by the rules, pay their taxes, create goods and services that others want, need and desire. And you know what? They raise their kids to be good people. You know, for all the white supremacists out there, you know what? There are others on the left, the Nation of Islam leader, for example, Louis Farrakhan, that are insane. It's a simple truth. But all we heard all weekend long from the left, the mainstream media, is that these extremists in Charlottesville this weekend somehow represent all conservatives, that the president supports them. He doesn't. All Republicans. And they attacked the president again and again and again. Don't believe it? Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) JAMELLE BOUIE, SLATE MAGAZINE, ON "FACE THE NATION"/CBS: And if you're looking for the roots of why white supremacists and neo-Nazis felt emboldened to march in a college town, you don't have to look very far from the White House. UNIDENTIFIED MALE, MSNBC: We have a racist as a president because a man that cannot stand up and condemn the Ku Klux Klan and Nazism is a racist. ANA NAVARRO, CNN POLITICAL COMMENTATOR: He was a coward. He didn't have the spine to behave like the leader of the United States, and I feel that to be shameful. He's not only unfit to be president. In my book, his lack of empathy, his lack of leadership, his lack of courage, he's unfit to be human! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Unbelievable, unfit to be human. All right, let's go back, let's take a look at the president's original comments on all of this. This all happened before a madman plowed into a group of people with his car. Here's what President Trump tweeted. Quote, "We all must be united and condemn all that hate stands for. There's no place for this kind of violence in America. Let's come together as one." The president also said, "We must remember this truth. No matter our color, creed, religion or political party, we are all Americans first." And once the protesters — once it turned deadly, President Trump immediately came out and gave a statement. Here's what the president said. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP, AUG. 12) PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides — on many sides. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Now, all weekend long, I, like many of you, watched the media going insane, acting like they didn't know what the president was talking about. They ran with a false narrative all weekend. Oh, big story, he didn't mention the groups by name. Well, it couldn't be more obvious, more transparent who the president was talking about. He was standing for equal justice under the law, against racism. And the press, what did they do? They used a high-profile act of violence to bludgeon the president and conservatives politically. So predictable. Now, it was crystal clear what the president was talking about. But the press, they went after him anyway. And the destroy Trump establishment media — they didn't care about the violence, seemingly, or the racial tensions they're creating or the civil unrest as much as they cared about using this tragedy as an opportunity to attack people they disagree with, and in particular, the president, to try and inflict as much damage politically as possible. You know what? Just like they have done since November 8! That's a simple truth. So President Trump once again, he came out today. He condemned again what happened, and yes, he called out the groups by name. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) TRUMP: Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans. (END VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: But you know what? We all know that's not going to be good enough. The media is never going to be satisfied with anything the president says or does because it's not part of their ideology and narrative. They want to paint the president, conservatives, Republicans as racist and bigoted by ignoring what he said this weekend, ignoring him over the years again and again and again condemning white supremacists, people like David Duke. For example — let me give you an example. This is Donald Trump over the years, something the destroy Trump media will never show you, condemning Duke, white supremacists. Look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) CHRIS WALLACE, DEBATE MODERATOR, MARCH 3, 2016: What are your views on the Ku Klux Klan and white supremacists? TRUMP: I totally disavow the Ku Klux Klan. I totally disavow David Duke. I've been doing it now for two weeks. This is — you're probably about the 18th person that's asked me the question. TRUMP, FEB. 26, 2016: I didn't even know he endorsed me, David Duke endorsed me. OK. All right. I disavow. CHUCK TODD, MODERATOR, "MEET THE PRESS"/NBC, JULY 23, 2016: David Duke announced his Senate candidacy, claiming your agenda for his own, or essentially saying glad that you spoke out… TRUMP: Are you ready before you ask the question? TODD: Newt Gingrich said every Republican should repudiate this guy, not matter what it takes. TRUMP: I did. And I do. Rebuked. Is that OK? Rebuked. TODD: Rebuked? TRUMP: Done. MATT LAUER, NBC NEWS, FEB. 2000: What do you see as the biggest problem with the Reform Party right now? TRUMP: Well, you've got David Duke just joined, a bigot, a racist, a problem. I mean, this is not exactly the people you want in your party. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Bigot, racist, rebuke, repudiate, want nothing to do with. Now, President Trump and the people that voted for him and that support his agenda — they don't like racists. They don't like bigots. They do not like what went down in Charlottesville. Conservatives that I have known my whole life, Republicans I have known my whole life, people like me — what was this election about? The forgotten men and women, the people that are out of work, in poverty, on food stamps, the doubling of our national debt. What was this election about? It was about getting jobs, getting our economy back in shape. It was also about keeping our country safe and secure. That's what this election was about. But yet every two to four years, the left, the Democrats, the media — they divide Americans by playing the race card every single election! Remember 1998, radio ad, Missouri, oh, elect a Republican and black churches are going to burn? Or the James Byrd at in 2000, when George Bush supported the death penalty for the guy that brutally murdered an innocent man by the name of James Burr (ph). For example, take a look throughout history. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) HILLARY CLINTON, THEN-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE, FEB. 16, 2016: Many Republicans talk in coded racial language about takers and losers. They demonize President Obama and encourage the ugliest impulses of the paranoid fringe. BARACK OBAMA, THEN-PRESIDENT, NOV. 3, 2016: If you accept the support of Klan sympathizers before you are president, you will accept their support after you're president. JOE BIDEN, THEN-VICE PRESIDENT, AUG. 14, 2012: They're going to put you all back in chains. AL GORE, THEN-VICE PRESIDENT, JULY 12, 2000: It's wrong what the leader of the Republican Party and this Congress are doing in blocking an accurate census because they don't want to count everyone that they don't think they can count on. GORE, JULY 16, 1998: Don't tell me we've got a color-blind society! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Notice Al Gore changes his voice, his cadence, his tone. Now, in 1998, before a predominantly black audience — he even went as far as to say Republicans know that theirs is the wrong agenda for African-Americans. They don't even want to count you in the Census. What a lie! And then there's President Obama's book, remember? "Audacity of Hope." Where was the media? Remember, he recounted a sermon from Reverend Jeremiah Wright from the church of G-d America, white folks' greed runs a world in need. Was the media outraged over this? (BEGIN AUDIO CLIP FROM "THE AUDACITY OF HOPE") OBAMA: It is this world, a world where cruise ships throw away more food in a day than most residents of Port-au-Prince see in a year, where white folks' greed runs a world in need, apartheid in one hemisphere, apathy in another hemisphere. (END AUDIO CLIP) HANNITY: Oh, you're so inspired by Reverend Wright, black liberation ideology — he sat in the pews of Wright's church for 20 years! Remember Reverend Wright? Remember him attacking U.S. KKK of A, and the Sunday after 9/11, "America's chickens coming home to roost." Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) REV. JEREMIAH WRIGHT, SEPT. 16, 2001: The stuff we have done overseas is now brought right back into our own front yard! America's chickens are coming home to roost! WRIGHT, APRIL 13, 2003: No, no, no! Not God bless America, God damn America that's in the Bible for killing innocent people! God damn America for treating here citizens as less than human! (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Twenty-plus years in the church. How many in the media covered Ayers and Dohrn? Well, that's what President Obama started his political career. What about the Nation of Islam leader, Louis Farrakhan, called white people the devil, the skunk of the planet Earth, and has said many racist, anti-semitic things, too many to count. Recent report, Daily Caller — well, they're saying that Farrakhan is claiming — and there's audio of it — that he met privately with then-Senator Barack Obama in 2008 before he announced his presidential run. And he said that the Nation of Islam supported Barack Obama quietly for president, and when he was a community organizer. Now, of course, as the DailyCaller pointed out, neither Obama or Farrakhan want to talk about that friendship. Has there been any investigation by the media? Pretty shocking. Well, the media didn't think it was important for you to know these things. They didn't cover a lot of those things. Then there's President Obama's handling — remember? All the high-profile racial cases when he was president where he jumped to conclusions, rushed to judgment without facts or information? He's supposed to be a lawyer, too. Watch this. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) OBAMA, JULY 22, 2009: The Cambridge police acted stupidly. There's a long history in this country of African-Americans and Latinos being stopped by law enforcement disproportionately. Now, that's just a fact. OBAMA, JULY 19, 2013: The African- American community is also knowledgeable that there's a history of racial disparities in the application of our criminal laws. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: And President Obama also had members from the group — remember? Black Lives Matter, people chanting things like, "Pigs in a blanket, fry 'em like bacon," talking about cops. Or when they talked about, "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." Oh, they were invited to the White House, where the president praised that group. Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) OBAMA, FEB. 18, 2016: We've also got some young people here who are making history as we speak, people like Britney (ph), who served on our police task force in the wake of Ferguson and has led many of the protests that took place there and shined a light on the injustice that was happening. People like Deray McKesson (ph), who's done some outstanding work mobilizing in Baltimore around these issues. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIP) HANNITY: Remember Hillary Clinton running for president? She praised Black Lives Matter, the same people. "What do we want? Dead cops. When do we want them? Now." Watch her. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) CLINTON, AUG. 27, 2015: And we do have to stand up and say loudly and clearly black lives matter. CLINTON, OCT. 13, 2015: There's a long list. We need a new New Deal for communities of color and the poor. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: You ever see the media talk about these things? This is why shows like this, in my opinion, are different from the liberal mainstream media. They've ignored these examples for decades. They also — they don't seem to care about the threats of violence that have been made repeatedly against our current president, President Trump. Remember? This photo was so graphic, we always have to issue the warning. It shows Kathy Griffin posing, ISIS fighter, bloody severed head of President Trump. Johnny Depp talking about killing a president. Madonna talking about blowing up the Trump White House. Really? Take a look. (BEGIN VIDEO CLIPS) JOHNNY DEPP, ACTOR, JUNE 22: When was the last time an actor assassinated a president? I want to clarify. I'm not an actor. (LAUGHTER) I lie for a living. However, it's been a while, and maybe it's time. MADONNA, JAN. 21: Yes, I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House. (END VIDEO CLIPS) HANNITY: Imagine, God forbid, somebody said that in the Obama years? Then there's Shakespeare in the park, that performance showing a Trump-like person being brutally stabbed to death. Also other celebrities, Snoop Dogg, Mickey Rourke advocating for violence against the president. What about — remember the Bernie Sanders supporter, the one that targeted Republicans at baseball practice, leaving Congressman Steve Scalise fighting for his life? Well, was the media blaming Democrats for that? No, and by the way, they shouldn't have. And I don't blame Bernie, either. Now, by the way, the left is totally unhinged at this point. This is, sadly, who they are, the double standard they adopt. And by the way, after all these examples where Democrats line up to condemn those people, where are they condemning all the things we're playing tonight? You see, they've got this separate set of rules for Republicans and Democrats. Every two to four years, Democrats divide the country. They play identity politics. It's been a part of this playbook the Democrats used for generations. So it's time for the destroy Trump establishment media to start recognizing how they have a massive double standard, that they have an agenda and ideology, because just like, sadly, white supremacists in Charlottesville, hatred of any kind should not be tolerated or ever given a free pass, period, whoever is involved in the hatred, like the hate we saw this weekend.
