A lot of people piled on and added stories to several episodes of public downfall in the past several months. From O’Reilly at Fox to Tomi Lahren at the Blaze, people relished coming forward with more stories to just add fuel to the fire.
It all stands in interesting contrast to what happened when Sean Hannity was accused of something. People who had stayed silent about the other situations, many of whom disagree with Sean politically, rushed forward to defend him. Why? Because whether you agree with Hannity’s politics or not, he is a tremendously kind and caring person who loves his family and treats everyone around him with kindness and respect.
A few years ago, I was getting harassed for something and it got out of control. Hannity called out of the blue and offered to pay for security at my home out of his own pocket. Last year in the hospital, he was one of the first people to check on me, but also to take a deep concern for my family while I was in the hospital. That is just the sort of guy he is. I know countless others with similar stories.
In all my years of TV and radio, I have rarely come across anyone as kind and decent as him. He is as nice of a guy as you think, if not more so, while a lot of people in TV are held up as great people and really aren’t. It is refreshing to see people rally to defend one of the good guys.
The righteous person may have many troubles, but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked; the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The LORD will rescue his servants; no one who takes refuge in him will be condemned. Psalm 34:19-22
