Last night Hannity ran an hour long special on black conservatives and how they’ve been attacked by the Left for being conservative. It features Dr. Ben Carson at the beginning, but quickly transitions to engaging the studio audience of black conservatives.

Watch it while you can:

    I don’t know how desperate a black conservative segment appears to everyone else. But, to me, its pathetic. We are conservatives, aren’t we? Seems a bit wankerish of Hannity.

    • http://www.therightscoop.com/ therightscoop

      MiltonBassHayek What are you talking about? It’s the fact that they are BLACK conservatives that they are attacked the way they are by other blacks and Democrats.
      This show is exactly what Hannity needs to do to expose this.

      • Lee0521

        Not sure I agree with that. The balkanization of blacks today is only intensifed every time a show airs or a study is done that focuses solely on black issues and concerns. They are less than 15% of the population and yet they seem to get the most attention of any ethnic group. A lot of minorities are discrimminated against because of their political beliefs fs the majority of their peers vote differently. Act like grown men and women and deal with it.

        • MiltonBassHayek

          Lee0521 Exactly! Did the “African American Conservative” action committee ask us to come to their defense? As conservatives, we should all fight together. This type of show is the exact cause of racial divides. We are the same, and believe in the same cause.

      • stage9

        therightscoop MiltonBassHayek I agree. THIS is EXACTLY what needs to happen more often. THIS is how you win back the country.
        Networks need to engage in these sorts of forum discussions MORE OFTEN. THIS IS THE IMPETUS that turns the tide of public thinking. It informs; it educates; it shows the OTHER side of the debate — the silent voices who are drowned out by the liberal rhetoric.
        Folks, this is the PR! PR! PR! I’ve been passionately preaching.
        Great job Hannity!

      • MiltonBassHayek

        therightscoop MiltonBassHayek I think they can defend themselves without Hannity. That’s why Mark doesn’t use those nonsense terms; because they defeat the purpose, and are liberal terms. We have a big tent, not “African American” conservatives, white conservatives, Latin conservatives, Chinese-American conservatives, Singapore conservatives, etc.. We are conservatives. That label should suffice.

        • http://www.therightscoop.com/ therightscoop

          MiltonBassHayek Why are you so against exposing the truth? You are completely missing the point. Blacks aren’t supposed to be conservatives and that is why they are ridiculed the way they are. It’s because their black. And conservative.
          I  understand the idea that ‘we re all Americans’ and agree with that. I am not for the balkanazation of anything. But the way minorities who aren’t liberals are treated by the left needs to be exposed for what it is. Tes are some of teh most hateful, racist people out there.

    • marketcomp

      MiltonBassHayek I just want to know what world are you living in? Hispanic conservatives are also ridicule. Just ask Ted Cruz nad Marco Rubio. Any conservative minority is suppose to be a liberal or else you are the enemy.

      • MiltonBassHayek

        marketcomp MiltonBassHayek Who cares? Liberals care about that nonsense. They are adults; they can handle their political bent on their own. They don’t need anyone to reinforce their beliefs for them.

      • OneThinDime

        marketcomp MiltonBassHayek I don’t view Rubio as a Conservative. At best he is a RINO but I believe he is a Democrat.

    • StewieGriffin

      MiltonBassHayek Hannity has that unique ability to reduce an important issue to petty politics.  I remember when he had the group of disappointed Obama voters on and then spent so much time poo-pooing Obama rather than dealing with the emotional aspect of what these people were going through that I think he pushed some of them right back to Obama.

      • Conservative_Hippie

        StewieGriffin MiltonBassHayek I love Hannity and I think he has a good heart, but I do agree he needs to work on his interviewing skills.

        • StewieGriffin

          Conservative_Hippie  It’s okay :)
          Not going to turn this into a Hannity bashing fest….I just don’t trust him.

      • MiltonBassHayek

        StewieGriffin MiltonBassHayek I like him. But I think he’s wading through waters he preaches about staying out of. I think O’Reilly should have done this segment, not Hannity.

        • K-Bob

          MiltonBassHayek StewieGriffin HaHaHa
          O’Reilly.
           Good one.

    • Conservative_Hippie

      MiltonBassHayek I understand your sentiments, but I do believe the double standard needs to be addressed.

    • K-Bob

      MiltonBassHayek I don’t see “desperate” I see “resolved”
      More shows like this, and I might start watching Fox again.

      • MiltonBassHayek

        K-Bob MiltonBassHayek All I’m saying is that these adults being called names for their political affiliation don’t need a hero to save them. They are on the right side of freedom and history. You can’t tell people that call them names that they are doing anything wrong by being so vulgar, because their sole intention is to be vulgar. Democrats are hypocritical know nothings. I don’t think rationalizing with them is a productive endeavor. I think we should, plain and simple, kick their punk a$$eS.

        • ldydesign

          MiltonBassHayek K-Bob The point is for them to have a forum to be heard…no one in mainstream media will do that.  get it?

        • MiltonBassHayek

          ldydesign MiltonBassHayek K-Bob No, I don’t. This is a political, lets see how many we can get on our side vs. your side, sideshow stunt. Conservatives can speak in venues open to conservatives. We don’t really believe that the media is going to open up to our cause, or our people, do we? If you answered, “yes.” I’m trying to dump beachfront property in Durango, Colorado for cheap. Let me know if you’re interested, smarty panties!

        • K-Bob

          MiltonBassHayek K-Bob That doesn’t seem to be relevant to what’s going on here.

  • MiltonBassHayek

    And I absolutely love (loathe) the sub title ” African American Conservatives.” Let’s just say, ” Americans.” This country is screwed!

    • Longiron

      @MiltonBassHayek How about Professional Black Americans??? the GOP would love that especially the flunkie for the RNC head guy !!!!!!

    • Conservative_Hippie

      MiltonBassHayek Hopefully not screwed yet, but agreed!

  • DawgfanInFL

    Shoot! Watch it while you can…video is currently unavailable. I tried to tell the hubby, nothing happens in the first half of the game, just give me one hour. Looks like I missed it again.

  • Lee0521

    Why are blacks the only minority who always seem to get special treatment? How about a show on a minority within a minority, like Jewish Conservatives or American Indian Conservatives. Blacks always seem to be complaining  about discrimination, yet they are always in the forefront of attention for almost every issue today. Let Hannity do a show about angry, self-absorbed, whining, complaining nuisances in the black community. I’d tune in for that.

    • CalCoolidge

      Lee0521 Why are blacks the only minority who always seem to get special treatment?
      Because they are a crucial monolithic voting bloc for the liberal politicians.  They must be constantly whipped into line.
      Look at Virginia for example.  Obama carried the state by 150,000 votes.  The Census indicates there about 1.6 million blacks.  Let’s say half of them vote.  That’s 800,000 votes.  If just 10 percent of the flip from Dem to Republican, Romney carries the state.

  • stage9

    Wow that was AWESOME! 
    That right there is the face of real America. Liberty and opportunity for all. Not this welfare state, self-hating, immoral, racially divided liberal cesspool we’re creating.

  • StevenValdez

    It’s been a long time since I watched an entire Hannity show…

    • StevenValdez

      And actually looking forward to a part II of this discussion.

  • aboutdat

    I AM BEGGING RUSH, MARK, SEAN, and even $Glenn Beck$ to get TOGETHER, and stop competing for the viewer share/$$, and get everybody to watch/LISTEN/LEARN, with the black conservatives  who are ready to take on the PROGRESSIVE LEFT for many reasons. They have MADE IT, and I assure you patriots like COL WEST, are not going to give it up without an INTELLEGENT FIGHT. WHATEVER it takes, no retreat possible at this point. IF we need votes, lets do the hard work with the TRUTH, but not become as low and idiotic as the PROGRESIVE LEFT DEMONcats (sorry, I had to give dims a litle shot, I am trying to stop name calling, I am still pretty mad we let these punks beat us as they wipe out the country’s history???REALLY?????) WE should be ashamed of ourselves, and stop watching those media outlets (MSLSD , CNN etc) who just lie all day !!!!

  • aboutdat

    I spent a lot of time and effort asking SEAN, GLENN, RUSH and LEVIN  in emails to do what was done last night on FOX.Hannity show.
    I have seen this idea ignored by the “conservatives”  (PUNDITS, talkers, former GOV, writers, novelist, Special ops, Military or whatever, etc) FOR YEARS !!!!!!.
    These ideas have been around by not just me (posted by other smart bloggers), and I have seen them dismissed as we know better, I don’t have time for your idea, not my job etc.
    These “LEADERS” know what to do, but as always, they do what the top talkers do. Try to do it ALL on their own, because there is MONEY involved (see GB) in writing books, radio show, pundit jobs, on and on.
    NOW they (BCs) are teaming up as our country (and theirs) is headed towards the crapper, since we saw what happened to Mitt, Col West, etc. And now BEN CARSON “smearing” IS the tipping point I hope. The PROGS went too far,  so please GOD, let this happen for us conservatives. RUN THEM dims OVER (figurativly and intellectually).
    We either stop this machine by GANGing up together, or we fall alone in our homes wondering why.

  • M_Minnesota

    I know it’s hard doing radio, but when Hannity was teasing this show on Radio he ran a list of Conservative Black in his rambling ways he said that Colonel Powell was a Conservative!!!    Say What??
    Dr. Ben Carson needs to come clean and stand with the Conservative Black leaders who stood up for the 2nd Amendment in a press conference  a few months ago.

    • billma40

      M_Minnesota 
      Although he says he believes in the second amendment, he doesn’t.
       http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I2PVv-VnXD4

      This isn’t a case of not understanding the Constitution. It’s his belief.

  • K-Bob

    I love the man, but Dr. Carson is calling for some sort of “dialogue” when we are already in the early stages of being frog marched to the gulags. We can have a dialogue when these totalitarian, jack-boot leftists learn to respect us enough to listen.
    That’s going to take resistance. Possibly revolution. Maybe even war.

    • StewieGriffin

      K-Bob He should know by now that there is no interest in dialogue from the left.  He’s naive and doesn’t really know what we’ve learned about the left.  He’ll just get swept under the carpet…which I’m sure has already happened at leftist news networks- right now the only airtime he gets is on conservative shows in which he preaches to the choir.  Dr. Carson’s area of effect will be speeches of universities, and within conservative organizations therein.

  • DizzyMissL

    Tourettes needs to be slapped.

    • K-Bob

      DizzyMissL He looks like he has been.  A lot.

  • CalCoolidge

    Doesn’t Hannity fall right into the liberal trap with labeling and group identity politics?  Why not just let Ben be Ben?  Why not just say he is a person with both:  down-to-earth common sense and had the keen intellect necessary to be a leading brain surgeon?
    Because if you don’t label it conservative, those who you might want Carson to influence might just take it for common sense?

  • MichaelMattei

    Thank you so much for posting that

  • JohnCraven

    When I watched this show last night, I couldn’t help but notice how so many on the dais were simply awestruck with Dr. Carson, as well they should be and they aren’t alone because I believe most conservative Americans, not simply black conservative Americans, are in awe of what he has accomplished and through him and his brother what his mother has accomplished. And amongst us conservative Americans – and in particular black conservative Americans – he is the leader of the resistance to what is happening to our nation.  It will not be found in the GOP whose Big Whigs like Bat Nuts McCain and Lindsey Grahamnesty are actually putting up for an unconstitutional vote a curb on the 2nd Ammendment.
    Dr. Ben Carson is not an enemy of the 2nd Ammendment as some here would have everyone believe. Senators Bat Nuts McCain, Lindsey Grahamnesty and Harry “the body” Reid are enemies of the 2nd Ammendment and are actually subverting it in the halls of Congess. In “America The Beautiful” he clearly celebrates our nation’s founding documents including our constitution. 
    Hannity did a great thing last night and he said he will do it again and invite them all back to discuss solutions to our problems and I hope also the 2nd Ammendment.  I hope it will happen soon.

    Thank GOD for Sean Hannity !!!!!!!!!!

  • Middleoftheroad

    Such a pity your hour of fame was  on spent being ` used` by  `Hannity`  in his  political bashing game  There might be some strenght left after your fight to get acceptance to the GOP. even when the party never consider winning our votes. None of the parties have ever represented  the best interest of us blacks people, nonetheless we have gravitated to what seem to be the better of the two evils, the Democrats.   Despite your screaming over the reaction of fellow blacks to your conservative  stance , you all should still continue begging for  acceptance to the GOP.  And if that doesn’t work, then form your own party.

    • JohnCraven

      You’re more like the end of the line than the Middleoftheroad.
      Dr. Carson’s “hour of fame” has lasted for well over 30 years compared to your microsecond of insignificance.  Countless people of all races and ethnic backgrounds and both sexes owe their very existence to Dr. Carson’s God-given skills.  And you can’t see past the color of the skin on your nose.
      I  think we should form our own party, for what it is worth.  We have little in common with “Middle-of-the-Roaders who run the GOP.  And as far as the Democrats are concerned, your “better of two evils”, the Democrat Party was the party of slavery, the party of Jim Crow, the party of the Klan, and remains the party of the Negro Project instituted by the “father of modern society”, Margaret Sanger – an avowed racist and bigot and founder of Planned Parenthood which she founded to exterminate the black race, other minorities and the poor of all ethnic and racial groups. 
      Margaret Sanger has been enormously successful in exterminating the black race with the help of the Democrat Party and Barack Hussein Obama in particular. She set up her abortion mills in mostly minority neighborhoods in large cities and in some areas the abortion rate amongst blacks is around 75% – genocidal levels – and it couldn’t have been accomplished without the Democrats and useful tools like you.

    Simply awesome.  Thanks for posting Scoop!  Hannity needs to do this OFTEN!

  • OneThinDime

    What I really liked was when they corrected Hannity and said they are black Americans, Conservative Americans!
