No, it's because he was behaving like a childish jerk

Liberal news outlets are gleefully reporting an incident on Fox news this morning:
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., was kicked off of Sean Hannity’s Fox News show during a segment that started out about the sequester, but which devolved into six minutes of the two yelling at each other [emphasis added]. Ellison called Hannity everything from "the worst excuse for a journalist I’ve ever seen" to "a shill for the Republican Party."
Except that if you watch the segment you will see that it was not six minutes of the two of them yelling at each other, it was six minutes of Eillison yelling at Hannity and generally behaving like a sixth-grader, with Hannity politely trying to get a word in edgewise.  I was cringing the entire time I watched it.  I am no fan of Fox news, so it's unfortunate that Ellison's childish conduct completely overshadowed the fact that what he was saying was actually true.  Hannity is a shill for the Republican party, and he is a pathetic excuse for a journalist.  But Ellison, at least for these six minutes, was a pathetic excuse for a leader, and that is the only thing that any non-Democrat is going to remember from this interview.

Hannity is not someone I like, but he is an individual with the right to say whatever he wants, no matter how stupid it is.

Ellitson is not someone I know, but he is a politician and thus day in and day out he uses violence to impose his will on the innocent and violates human rights.

Look at his voting record. Constantly he is voting for laws that are abusive to people's rights... because that's all they do these days, since murder, rape and other rights violations were long ago outlawed.

Hannity, scumbag that he may be, gets his money legitimately.

Ellison, gets his money by theft.

That people make hay like this is astounding given they ignore that one of these men is a violent thug and the other is just expressing first amendment rights.
