NEW YORK — Conservative firebrand Sean Hannity unleashed another volley of racially charged polemic on his radio show Thursday morning, this time targeting the critically acclaimed drama “12 Years a Slave.” Hannity called the film, which recounts the true story of a free slave, Solomon Northup, who was kidnapped and sold into slavery in 1841, “a sham” and “nothing more than an attempt to exploit white guilt and divide America.”
Director Steve McQueen’s historical drama has been lauded by critics for its unflinching portrayal of slavery’s horrors and drawn equal praise from filmgoers. Those who caught the film in its limited release last weekend assigned it an average grade of A, according to market research firm CinemaScore.
But Hannity encouraged his loyal supporters to “avoid falling into the liberal trap of a slavery guilt trip” as the film heads for wide release this weekend. “Seriously, how long has it been? How many times can you keep bringing [slavery] up after 150 years?” Hannity admitted that he has not seen the film, but said he could “tell that it draws out and exaggerates the bad parts of slavery the way only Hollywood can.”
“The only thing another slavery movie does, on top of pitting blacks against whites, is enable a minority culture of laziness and excuses. Maybe they should make a movie about black students who run away from hard work and responsibility. Call it ‘12 Years in School.’ How about it, Hollywood?”
“This is just further proof that Obama’s America is one of sensationalized racial politics. Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States of America is black, yet I’ve never heard more about race in my life than I have since 2008,” added Hannity.
Earlier this year, Hannity blasted Obama for his public comments on the killing of Trayvon Martin, suggesting that Obama compared himself to Martin because they both “smoked pot” and “did a little blow.”
Before concluding his rant, Hannity managed to downplay slavery as “a youthful mistake” and asked listeners if they thought Jewish people “would still be groaning about the Holocaust in 150 years.”
This weekend, Fox Searchlight Pictures will expand “12 Years a Slave” to roughly 100 theaters across the country.
“the bad parts of slavery”? Dear God,they are hopeless.
So we’re suppose to forget about slavery? Never, we don’t hear about it enough, Jews never let you forget about the Holocaust, why should we.
Think about the people who actually cut this guy a paycheck.
Hannity, you are a fucking bigoted, racist asshole. Silver spoon dipshit. Never had to actually work a day in your life. Someone hands you a script, usually the KKKoch brothers, and your gums flap to their tune. Ignorant fucking NAZI Teathugligoon sitting next to you pretty much sums up your entire show.
Again Fact-Free Hannity shows his ignorance to his unsuspecting fans. The movie is based on true documentation. If he thinks that the movie is “Black propaganda”, then he is portraying the true fact that he is merely a FOXX-FIXXED News pundant, planted to distribute his brand of ignorance to low-information audiences. The decendents of Solomon Northrop were recently on C-SPAN3 with an astounding presentation of documents from the National Archives, US Census, and various other artifacts & sources. http://www.c-span.org/video/?317962-1/ahtv-solomon-northrups-descendants
Ummmm, that would be yes Sean…we will be talking about the Holocaust in 150 years…Asshole!
The guy is a real racist. And even worse, he’s too cowardly to admit it. So just uses innuendo SNF suggestion
Is anyone else noticing a lot of this outrage popped up AFTER the movie raked in millions of dollars and major awards? Now that they know the movie isn’t just going away on it’s own, they’re lashing out?
They will say and do anything for a story.. Dont Bite….. I’m Black and White.. Love both side Equally.. Ain’t no movie goning change that…
He didn’t say this. Most of it is satire and even the part that is true is not related to anything he said about this movie.

So Sarah Palin still has a problem with defeat when she was the problem. I don’t think that Republican ticket was in that kind of trouble until she arrived then John Mc Cain went down the drain, Everything she touches turns to mush.
Hannity, Hannity, Hannity….I think you really believe what comes out of your mouth.
I’m sure that if someone intrepid did some digging around Hannity’s frat that they’d hear the stories about Hannity’s youthful forays into controlled substances–that’s a plural there.
“the bad parts of slavery”??? There were good parts Hannity?
Looks like Sarah is on a mission to discredit the President, sore losser. So are you ready for Hillary Clinton for President 2016
draws out and exaggerates the bad parts of slavery … what part of slavery was good
Hey Sarah. This will be fantastic for your presidential campaign. I see you’re losing weight and keeping up the appearance. Any plans? If so, I’d recommend you keep your distance from “friends” like Hannity. Oh. I see. That’s all you’ve got. Your screwed.
Hannity calls it “a sham” and “nothing more than an attempt to ‘exploit white guilt and divide America.’” I know Handityjobless, you conservatives want the kudos for yourself. Plenty to go around for everyone Hannity.
