In the wake of the racially-charged shooting massacre in Charleston, South Carolina, many have called on a ban of the Confederate flag. Several retailer including Walmart have obliged, pulling Confederate-themed merchandise from their shelves.
Not surprisingly, FOX News host, conservative pundit, and Ryan Adams hater Sean Hannity has taken issue with these stores’ decision. His rational? They’re still selling records from Beyoncé, Jay Z, and other “racist, misogynist, sexist” artists.
“Some retailers — Sears, Walmart, Amazon, eBay and the rest of the retailers in the last 24 hours — have announced that they intend to discontinue sales of the Confederate flag,” Hannity said during a segment on his daily radio show Thursday. “Now I have a question: Can you still buy a Jay Z CD at Walmart? Does the music department at Sears have any Ludacris albums? Can I download 50 Cent on Amazon? Can I do that? Can I get some Snoop Dogg albums on eBay? Because a lot of the music by those artists is chock-full of the ‘N word,’ by the way and the ‘B-word,’ and the ‘H-word,’ and racist, misogynist, sexist anti-woman slurs none of those retail executives would be caught dead using.”
“It’s OK for Obamas teenage daughters and people going into these stores and buy music chock full of the ‘N-word’ and ‘B-word,’ maybe we should consider banning that too. Since we’re in the process of banning everything,” Hannity concluded.
