Yeah as if he wasn't one of their biggest pushers. Little late to save face now, the only reason he is changing tune now is cause the wave is turning, Everyone out there should stop watching people like this and should boycott their sponsors.

He probably learned he'd have to return to the studio soon and doesn't want to risk getting infected by commoners.

Hannity is worried the local Klan chapters will recruit too many of his viewers.  He'll lose out when they all think switch to OANN and Stormfront because Fox News is too 'left wing.'

/Yes, these protests are white supremacist recruiting tools.  100%.

Fox News really doesn't make much in the way of advertising revenue anymore.  Boycotts have been effective, to that degree.

Their revenue now comes almost exclusively from the fees they charge cable companies for carrying Fox News, which everyone who has cable TV pays, even if you never watch it.

So if you want to hurt Fox News, the best way to do that is to cut the cord.  Cancel cable TV.  And let the cable company know why when you do.

I guess someone finally told him that when the shooting starts, he might be held liable for inflaming the shooters?

You know you're into shiat eating lunacy territory when you've lost Hannity.

He'll be working for OANN before the year is up.

No points awarded to Hannity.  He helped create that inbred monster and now and he can deal with it.

Hannity knows he's farked up badly and everyone can see it,he's becoming desperate.

Do these armed protestors have jerbs or are they all on workman's comp for hearing loss not related to riding their straight pipe Harleys and/or shooting their guns without hearing protection?

Hey lily white tacticool keyboard commando prepper: Meet the bus Lumpy is tossing you under because you're not politically convenient, and are making the Rethuglicans look bad.

FTFA: She called the fact that so many of the protestors weren't wearing masks "devastatingly worrisome," an understandable takeaway given that as of Saturday, Michigan had the highest coronavirus fatality rate in the country.

Make sure to put a red MAGA hat on the gravestones of every single one of these friggin' idiots who die.

Brandishing a weapon is advertising your intent to kill. We are looking at Civil War 2.0 in the near future.

Told you. This is what you do - you exhort fringers to extreme acts even as you tut-tut, in public, their extremism. That way, you look like the "moderate", reasonable choice even as the fringers & extremists do your dirty work for you.

They're reworking their images for the election. Hannity, Fox News, and other right-wing talking assholes will be cutting loose the fringers they cultivated, letting them out into the wild to do harm, even as they then say, "look, I know what they're doing is horrible - I mean, they have a point, but the way they go about it is just too much. If only we had a guiding hand, a moderate, an 'adult in the room' that could handle them..."

Lumpy is worried that people are starting to see Republicans for the thugs they are.

They thought their hayseed pageant would force Whitmer's hand and they could claim victory, but she told them to piss up a rope and opinion polling hasn't moved from favoring distancing and lock down measures. Hannity is at least smart enough to recognize that the only path forward for these idiots is a shooting, one that will pit his beloved police state against the hayseeds. They're supposed to be working together and can pull that off when they need to ensure that only "leftist" protesters get beat up and arrested, but the "leftist" component here is a duly elected governor and healthcare workers. Can't get past those optics.

A GROUP ASSOCIATED WITH DONALD TRUMP JR. IS BUYING A MAJOR STAKE IN OANN

The Trump's have a reason to promote their nutball conspiracy channel, they're going to own it soon.

Don Jr. attempting to buy OANN?  That, coupled with the report earlier in the week (I think?) that Trump's administration was actually taking some of the steps needed to establish a transition team for the "unlikely" event that he loses the election.  It looks like the play they're making is Trump loses the election, and instead of trying to hold onto it or simply refusing to leave, he'll vacate the office making maximum level of noise, and then immediately migrate to OANN (rebranded as Trump TV) where he'll constantly complain it is a hoax, Democrats are bad, etc.. and use that for a minimum work-maximum profit position until it goes bankrupt.  At that point Fox and OANN are no longer...allies? host/parasite symbiotes? ... so Fox is taking pre-emptive steps to gradually exit from Trump support so they can keep that audience instead of losing them to Trump TV.

No wonder Trump's falling out of love with FOX News.  And vice versa.  Soon they'll be at each other's throat.

Lumpy will never leave Donald.

The people showing up for these protests are the worst of the anti-government types.  They certainly never cared about police officers. They're more LaVoy Finicum and have the same dream of martyrdom after having shot their way through a roadblock.

He will if he loses. Hannity defended Bush right up until the day he left office, then he was thrown away like used kleenix. Trump will be that guy no one will admit they voted for and it won't take long. Once Trump loses  his power, the fawning grifters will move on.

Those are not real police guarding the state house.  I've heard some people say, and you may not know this, that they are really UN provided socialism troopers funded by Soros and sworn to Obammunism.

I'm kind of a gun guy. I'm not the type to slap a molon labe sticker on my car or bring up guns all the time, but I own a few (shopping for more, too). I enjoy shooting and hunting. But the thing about these guys I don't understand is, why open carry at these types of things? You're not going to win hearts and minds doing that. For me, I don't want to go out of my way to make people uncomfortable by openly carrying. I understand it's their right, but it's not very pragmatic.

And I've even open carried before, but for a specific reason. When I lived in Kodiak, Ak, and went on hikes through the mountains, I wanted my .44 magnum ready. Sometimes when returning back to town I'd still have the gun on me, but it's a different culture out there and didn't make anyone feel uncomfortable.

They brandish their rifles because its a meant to be a threat. Its why they dress up in quasi-military outfits, and pass memes around talking about the Boogaloo.

Its to instill in the minds of their opposition that if they are not heard, if they are ignored, then they will respond with deadly force.
