Sean Hannity, Keith Ellison Have Fiery Clash About Muslims (VIDEO)

21 April 2011 Huffington Post 11 Comments Email This Post Email This Post

Sean Hannity and Rep. Keith Ellison engaged in a heated debate about Muslims on Hannity’s Wednesday show.

The conversation touched on several very contentious issues, such as the proposed Islamic center near Ground Zero, the 9/11 attacks and the notion that America is “at war” with “radical Islam.” Ellison, the first Muslim to be elected to Congress, and Hannity spent much of their time talking over each other.

The debate lasted around 15 minutes, but the most fiery clashes came in the second half. Hannity asked if Ellison thought the Nation of Islam should be “investigated” by the government. “I’m more of a constitutionalist, Sean,” Ellison said. “You and I must agree that we wouldn’t just investigate a group because we don’t agree with them. We gotta have more than that. You’d agree with that, right? Wouldn’t you agree with that?”

“Relax,” Hannity said, adding that it seemed “reasonable” in light of 9/11 to investigate certain groups in the country.

He then turned to Mohammed Salman Hamdani, the Muslim-American firefighter who died on 9/11. Ellisonbroke into tears during controversial Congressional hearings on Islam in America while he recounted the negative press and attention Hamdani had been tarred with after the attack because of his religion. Hannity accused him of “misleading the American people” about the amount of criticism Hamdani had received, a point which Ellison vehemently denied. The two struggled to get their words in over each other. At one point, while Ellison was asking Hannity to let his speak, Hannity said, in exasperation, “go ahead, go, go, relax!”

Ellison concluded by asking Hannity to “stop trying to make it like only Muslims are the problem” when it comes to terrorism. Hannity, predictably, took issue with this.


  1. sean hannity is a politcal hack, a racist, a fascist and an ignorant embarrassment. he is certainly not a patriot or defender of the consitution.

  2. What an idiot will bring up Rosa Parks? Whites did not want to sit next to her because she was black – that’s how it was and it was racism and it has been long overcome – I think Obama is enough of a proof. Actually, the bigot Elliot is the proof, too, isn’t he? If she was in ANY way associated with people who blew up the WTC I still would not want to sit next to her OR get on the plane with her. Is Elliot so limited that he doesn’t see the difference? I love it when muslims talk about American slavery….are we ever going to retort what they did to the blacks in Africa as soon as they spread their vile in the 7th – 8th century – including castrations of the black slaves?

  3. according to islam slavery is perfectly legal, is it not? well you can enslave non-muslims. isn’t that why they didn’t proselytize to sub-sahra africa, to keep a ready supply of slaves.

    Muslim Brothers in Palestine, do not have any mercy neither compassion on the Jews, their blood, their money, their flesh. Their women are yours to take, legitimately. God made them yours. Why don’t you enslave their women? Why don’t you wage jihad? Why don’t you pillage them?

  4. Scum Vannity, the Schmuck Norris of Faux News, and others like him (we’re lookin’ at you, Reprehensible Petey King), should consider the following before focusing only on Muslims (broken into little sound bites for easy teabaqqer comprehension):

    Confirmed number of terrorist plots against the US perpetrated by those claiming to be Muslims in 2010: 10

    By non-Muslims: 25

    Where do you focus your outrage now, Muslim haters?


    peterking, hopefully the fbi is focusing on all groups who have a history of terror, radical anti-government groups, white supremists, anti-abortionists and radical muslims. and even trying to predict who in the future may have a tendency towards terror. i hope the don’t miss another 9/11. but given that there are approximately 310 million people in the country and only about 10 million are muslims, their incidents for terror per person is good reason to remain focused on the muslim community.

  6. You know, I look at the badge which accompanies Islamophobia Today, the one that says “Americans AGAINST Islamophobia”, and then I read some of the comments left here and I wonder…

  7. Sean Hannity is a bigot. He and “Pastor” Jones should get together and have some.. If anyone is interested in getting in touch with the biggest piece of garbage on the face of this earth aka Debbie Schlussel, then her number is 248-354-1409.. She is verrryyyy anti-Islam.. She begs Americans to come armed to pro-Arab protests, to kill innocent Americans..

    I got plenty to say regarding this low life crook Debbie. More to come, since i just found this website today. Its now on my “favorites”.. Hamdillah this page exists. I will also be sharing this site with the 1481 friends I have on facebook, and the 1100 followers I have on twitter..

    Sadly haters on Islam find this page interesting too. They can and will spill their 110% Bull sh*t on here.. Those losers belong in the same catergory as hannity, terry jones, schlussel, peter king and all the other millions of evil zionists and/or devil worshippers. (notice I didn’t care to capitalize their names, respectivly lol)

    Once again, debbie’s # is 248-354-1409

  8. Redneck fcuk Chuk. You ever wondered about the little Children sentenced and judged as terrorist then executed by US&NATO war planes/Drones. What about the toddlers & month old infants’ human rights violators? What about these new made-up humanitarian laws protecting civilians where as soon as a citizen is converted to democracy & HR this Barbarian Law immediately swings into effect through suction bombs and depleted uranium killing mind you “targets” , not human beings(Black & Brown folk)while exempting civilians (what the fcuk that means)under the usual open end laws covering White people divine anointment (UNSC) to bomb until their values are displayed e.g. with White Europeans occupying Black&Brown folks lands? What about open-end-wars law, the new UNSC, ICJ dark ages club. All they need to do is to gather in some White capital with one or two stooges then like GCC or the house of (Sharia) Saud then bomb for months on end everything that steps up to breath. I find it hard to wish you well when ‘natural’ disasters or some loony freaks out in a killing rampage. The easy with which you kill others in the world vexes my soul and challenges my own humanity.

  9. I see some people on here saying Islam allows Slaves. Please prove to me where in ISLAM does it say that it is ok for one person to enslave another. I don’t care what people’s actions were, what matters is what the RELIGION teaches. I don’t understand how people can sit there and say “oh look what that Ali guy is doing over there, Islam must allow it”

    That is not the case! Look at the teachings, don’t look at the people because clearly some people don’t know how to follow the religion. They do what they want to do and because they are Muslim people think that the two automatically go together. If I see a Christian or a Jew or a Hindu or a Buddhist or whomever it may be going around and killing people or enslaving people, I would separate the crime from the religion. There is no way that one person, or a few people can speak for the remaining 2 million people. There are over 2 million Muslims in the US. There are BILLIONS in the world. BILLIONS! If even 1 billion people decided to all go and kill one person or enslave one person, than we would all be dead or slaves.

    Please open your mind people. I think people just want to hate something. No one even talks about the specific people who did the 9/11 attacks, all we talk about is the religion. I don’t know how many times we must tell everyone that those “Muslims” were not following Islam correctly. No one cares. I wonder how you would feel if I went through the whole country and looked at every Christian and pointed his/her flaws upon Christianity.

  10. heez,

    are you muslim? its all over the koran. the bible allows slavery too allows slavery too.
    [4.25] And whoever among you has not within his power ampleness of means to marry free believing women, then (he may marry) of those whom your right hands possess from among your believing maidens; and Allah knows best your faith: you are (sprung) the one from the other; so marry them with the permission of their masters, and give them their dowries justly, they being chaste, not fornicating, nor receiving paramours; and when they are taken in marriage, then if they are guilty of indecency, they shall suffer half the punishment which is (inflicted) upon free women. This is for him among you who fears falling into evil; and that you abstain is better for you, and Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

  11. heez,

    if by ali, you mean the fifth caliphate, or the first if you ask a shia, then his example, like that of the prophet’s holds great sway. he was the third muslim and a “companion of the prophet.” but i think you may have just been throwing out a popular islamic name. anyways my post with examples of where the koran allows slavery are held up in moderation because of the links. but according to the koran you can take slaves as spoils of war. and the best part is, if you free a slave a great sin is forgiven. so if you’re prone to sinning you should stockpike a bunch of slaves, they’re like get out of hell free cards. you know you can just google quotes on slavery in the koran.

Have your say!
