I love how, in the introduction, Hannity throws out a casual comment supposedly made on another show by another person, completely without attribution, comparing Trinity United Church of Christ with the Branch Davidians, and then quickly moves on without any rebuttals as though what he has just said is a fact.
This is the Right Wing, AM Radio, and Fox Network's stock in trade. Hannity does it. O'Reilly does it. Limbaugh does it. It is as transparent as newly polished glass to anyone with a functioning nervous system.
The most commonly uttered phrase on all of these programs is "...but let's move on." Meaning 'I don't have to prove what I just said is true, we all know it's true, anyone who disagrees is an idiot' "...so let's move on."
The second most uttered phrase is "...I have to go." Which means 'You are making some very valid points which are backed up by actual FACTS which are taking away from my spin point, so I have to go in order to keep you from swaying any opinions with an argument that makes sense and is better than mine.'
Rev. Wright tries to communicate to Mr. Hannity that the views expressed in his church are steeped in the Black Value System and Liberation Theology.
The Rev. Wright also tried to inform Mr. Hannity about the concept of Liberation Theology and questioned Mr. Hannity's knowledge of the subject. Hannity dodged the subject and kept trying to interrupt because he didn't want to admit his ignorance. Hannity is a bigoted idiot.
"Liberation theology is a school of theology within Christianity, particularly in the Catholic Church. Liberation Theology focuses on Jesus Christ as not only the Redeemer but also the Liberator of the oppressed. It emphasizes the Christian mission to bring justice to the poor and oppressed, particularly through political activism. Some elements of certain liberation theologies have been rejected by the Catholic Church."
The Black Value System is expressed on the TUCC web site here.
Some suburban, Lilly-white, Christians who have never attended a black church service may find some of the assertions disconcerting.
I can tell you that every black service that I have attended preaches these philosophy's with great, dramatic, over-the-top enthusiasm from the pulpit and are responded to by heartfelt congregational participation and accompanied by a loud and soulful soundtrack.
This is nothing new. This is how African Americans go to church. They have been doing this for a very long time.
This is only an issue for white folk who are used to going to quiet, non confrontational, reassuring, comforting services surrounded by lots of other white folk singing ancient songs that don't need drums or tambourines.

Here are some videos that you won't see on Fox News.
