Blog ››› ››› ERIC SCHROECK
On the August 24 edition of his Fox News show, Sean Hannity claimed that he "would never question" President Obama's "patriotism."
Really? (Remember, this is coming from Fox News' head cheerleader of the birther conspiracy theory.)
Here are just some examples of Hannity questioning Obama's patriotism:
August 7, 2008: Ignoring numerous speeches and statements, Hannity claims to "never hear" Obama discuss "how great this country is":
April 17, 2009: Hannity asks, "Is there anything that [Obama] likes about this country?"
April 20, 2009: Hannity wonders if Obama "even likes" America, since he "has so completely condemned his own country":
May 26, 2009: Discussing Obama's nomination of Sonia Sotomayor to the Supreme Court, Hannity claims Obama "turns his back on Mainstream America" by nominating "the most divisive nominee possible," a "radical":
June 4, 2009: Hannity airs an Obama "apology tour" montage:
July 16, 2009: Hannity declares that Obama's "Soviet-style" health care will "destroy capitalism":
October 2, 2009: Hannity claims, "Maybe if Obama" hadn't been going "around the world criticizing the U.S.," the Olympics might have picked the U.S:
October 13, 2009: Hannity claims that Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize "for trashing America," "for calling America arrogant," and "for apologizing for America":
March 3, 2010: Hannity claims that "Obama is weak. He's an appeaser. ... Obama is making this country and every citizen vulnerable to attack":
June 9, 2011: Hannity features a graphic of "Obama's economic saboteurs":
And Hannity isn't the only one on Fox who has questioned Obama's patriotism. Since Obama took office, Fox has relentlessly portrayed him as un-American and anti-American.
