    Default Hannity: GOP is "dead", "weak", "morally corrupt"

    In a Breibart interview Monday night Hannity described the Republican party in less than glowing terms:

    "Here's my view on the Republican Party," Hannity said. "It's a dead party. They are morally corrupt, they are weak. they are ineffective, they're vision-less, and they have no identity."

    Now, let's be honest: Hannity thinks the GOP is less than cool primarily because as a party it has failed to give Donald the full-throated, no questions asked support he wants to see from them. And I am inclined to dismiss out of hand any assertion that either party is "dead" - that's just hyperbole. That said, this is one of the few times I agree with our host (at least in part). When you endorse, fund, and support candidates like Donald and Moore, it's hard to see you as morally upright.

    Does this include 45, a man he supports? There never been a president so morally bankrupt than 45.
    Mr. Hannity, his comrades in right wing media and all the rhetoric they talk everyday is one of the reason why we're here and why the GOP is so morally bankrupt. It influences, it emboldens.
    It's all about power.

    The GOP sold it's soul long before 45 got elected to office.
    However, with the election of 45 they can now do and get all the things they've been wanting to do for decades.

    The March on Washington is not the climax of our struggle, but a new beginning not only for the Negro but for all Americans who thirst for freedom and a better life. Look for the enemies of Medicare, of higher minimum wages, of Social Security, of federal aid to education and there you will find the enemy of the Negro, the coalition of Dixiecrats and reactionary Republicans that seek to dominate the Congress.
    A. Phillip Randolph
    1963 March on Washington

    So this is nothing new and the reason why the GOP has become what it is. The party of moral values my ass, it's all about power. Now that they have it, brother Randolph's excerpt from his speech is going to come true.
    Stay Woke......

    What we're seeing is simply the right-wing of America reaping what is has sewn over the last 8 years. Neither conservatives nor republicans (not that there's any difference, despite objections from both) are any less culpable.

    In 2010, conservatives/tea partiers/republicans filled congress with politicians who literally only had the capability to do one thing-oppose Obama. They didn't know how to run things. Many were just regular Joes who were just willing to say the words you guys wanted to hear. "Repeal Obamacare. Muslims bad. Immigrants bad. PP bad"

    Well, that's what we've got right now. A toothless legislature and executive who don't know how to do the jobs they were elected to do. Literally all they know how to do is whine about Democrats, while directly using the tactics they accused Democrats of using to try to pass legislation (in the dead of night, behind closed doors, rammed down our throats, etc.).

    Many on the right are just happy (D)s aren't in power and will be content if the (R) majorities/executive don't accomplish anything other than preventing (D)s from pursuing their agenda since they're in the minority. That's fine and dandy, but it shouldn't be surprising when those very same people aren't able to actually accomplish anything.

    What happened in November 2016 was exactly what Fox, Sean, Rush, the tea party, conservatives, republicans, RINOs, etc.wanted. You did it! You won! Congrats!

    Now you reap what you sewed. Or as a resident poster is oft to say "eat ur peas."

    Yes, he's talking about the establishment. Although they are doing fine these days. The Clinton's are crooks and sexual harassers, so.

    And if you look at Trump policies, even dems have very little to complain about.

    Hannity could mention his website and forum once in a while.. Who cares about facebook..


    We are so lucky to live in the USA, and during an inter-glacial warming period with

    President Donald J. Trump as President

    Ummm, no. We only want conservative legislation passed. This explains the critical nature from our host on the current republicans who have hindered political advancement of conservative ideals.

    Isn't it the Freedom Caucus, the real hardcore conservatives, that have been the biggest thorn in the side of passing Republican legislation?

    maybe if they would stop posing un-passable legislation that their own party can't support.

    If our gracious host is truly concerned about advancing conservative ideals, then Trump was the wrong horse to back.

    My experience with self-proclaimed conservatives over the years tends to be more of complaining than solutions. They're very able to criticize, but very incapable of leading or offering solutions, especially ones that are in the best interest of EVERYONE, as opposed to their own beliefs. They don't truly believe in smaller government. They're perfectly OK with big government intervening in our lives as long as it's government control that propagates their beliefs.

    Conservatives are not a majority ideology, which is why people like Pence, Huckabee, Santorum, etc. have never been viable candidates by themselves.

    Partisanship is for dummies. On both sides. Watching FBI Director Wray get grilled by Senate Committee. Republicans excoriate FBI's handling of Hillary's email issue; Democrats howl about Trump and obstruction of justice. Laughable display of silly team play.

    Real progress will only be achieved when smart people take over and smart people vote. Those who realize that both ideologies are valid and that most of their adherents are good people, parents, children, soldiers and employees. Unfortunately, we are in a time where the 'other' ideology is demonized.

    Beyond the Ten Commandments, there are no fixed ideological certainties. They are all theories.

    Smart people don't hate each other over theories.

    I don't disagree-we're living in what is probably the biggest partisan divide in modern history.

    These are the same people who tend to ascribe doctrinal, revelatory truth to claims like this:


    “He is pushing an agenda and his agenda is sexual in nature, his agenda is liberal, and not what Americans need,” said Moore, not explaining what it is about Soros’s agenda that is “sexual.” He also said: “It’s not our American culture. Soros comes from another world that I don’t identify with.”

    He suggested that Soros was headed to hell because he is not a Christian. “No matter how much money he’s got, he’s still going to the same place that people who don’t recognize God and morality and accept his salvation are going,” Moore said. “And that’s not a good place.”

    IMO, con-servatives don't lead very well because leading requires looking forward. Con-servatism, by definition, is NOT looking forward. It's either staying with the status quo or looking backward.

    This is an unfair thread. If we are honest about what Hannity said, we will be guilty of "contempt of host"

    Moore is a slimy little weasel. It's disgusting to hear him talk about god and morality.
