Sean Hannity: If you ban the Confederate flag you have to ban hip hop too

Just when you thought the American right had exhausted all the possible dumb responses to the Confederate flag debate, a tall dark stranger appears at the doorway. He takes off his hat and enters into the light... it's Sean Hannity, and he has something to say.

Yes, the man who by a cruel twist of fate has a name which rhymes with sanity, thinks that amid retailers banning the sale of the Confederate battle flag, the real issue is being glossed over.

Hip hop.

On his radio show, the Fox News presenter said:

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... Fiddy [sic] Cent on Amazon, can I do that? Can I get some Snoop Dogg albums on eBay? Why do I say that? Because a lot of music by those artists are chock-full of the n-word. And the b-word. And the h-word.

Hannity goes on to say that this is of course all Barack Obama's fault, because what do you expect from a man who invited Jay Z and Beyoncé to the White House.

Apparently if it's OK for Obama's daughters to buy this music all shops in America should ban that too, "if we're in the process of banning everything". And all this in response to the murder of nine black churchgoers in Charleston last week.
