Sean Hannity Hits Back Hard Against Fascists Trying To Silence Him
Fox News’ Sean Hannity hit back hard against those who are trying to silence him with boycotts and accusations of sexual harassment.
Political pundit and blogger Debbie Schlussel appeared on the Pat Campbell Podcast to make the accusation that she had been sexually harassed during one of Hannity’s many book tours.
Without giving a date of when the act had supposedly occurred, Schlussel accused the Fox News host of propositioning her by inviting her up to his hotel room.
This accusation was launched just days after Bill O’Reilly left the network, amidst sexual harassment accusations, and 9 months after CEO Roger Ailes resigned after sexual harassment accusations came to light.
The Left has salivated at every scalp that they take from Fox News, but Sean Hannity has made it clear that he will fight back, and fight back hard.
Using his Opening Monologue segment, Hannity said,
“Now for those of you who don’t know me well, I have a pretty thick skin. I call out people, I say things I give my point of view four hours a day. And for all these years, there has been this an unrelenting attack against me. But in light of recent events, I’ve come to the conclusion I can no longer remain silent and I can no longer let the left slander against me slide.
So, from now on, I want you to be informed of what I am doing and why I’m doing it. If there’s any person or group or any organization, any media outlet that slanders, lies about me, besmirch me and my character, I am going to be calling them out. At this point, enough is enough.”
Though Hannity did not specifically identify Schlussel as the person slandering his name, he did describe that the unnamed person and he had a previous history together, and laid out fact that she had a history of spreading lies about him.
“I have hired a team of some of the best attorneys in this country to work with me and on my behalf. Now, the breaking point came this weekend when an individual for over a decade has made the most outrageous, unfair, untrue allegations against me has now resurfaced making ridiculous and completely untrue claims.
Now, this person went on a radio show on Friday and made more unfounded accusations against me, which this person is now interestingly recanting after I made my statement, but it was only after I responded to these baseless and false smears. This is not the first time I have had to deal with this individual.
Now, this person has repeatedly spread lies about me. I’ll give you an example. Back in 2010, I was raising money for the Freedom Alliance, a charity that offers college scholarships to the children of killed veterans and their families. And in a blog post, the individual falsely accused me and members of the charity of skimming and stealing money that was donated.
This of course was easily proven false. And, in spite of the fact that we proved each and every single allegation to be untrue and inaccurate at the time, I was never given an apology. There is no correction that was issued.”
According to Salon, since Hannity’s threats to take legal action against those who have slandered his name, Schlussel has “walked back” on the entire sexual harassment claim, and is now just claiming that she was once propositioned by the Fox News host.
