This is just sad. Generations of anger passed on by abuse and beatings resulted in hateful demagogues like Sean Hannity and Michelle Malkin, who pass on the legacy of abuse to their own children and preach it to others on Fox News.
Hannity and Malkin began by mounting an awful defense of recently-fired Rutgers basketball coach Mike Rice, and ended by revealing something truly disturbing about themselves.
At the end of the segment, the two conservatives’ defense of Rice involved recalling their own experience with being disciplined as children. “My father hit me with a belt, and I turned out okay,” the Fox host recalled. “Except in the minds of liberals.”
“Same here. And with more than a belt,” she said. “I’m sure the left thinks we are warped minds.”
She then concluded: “I’m much better at administering spankings now than receiving them.”
I’m not being snarky; it honestly does make me a bit sad to hear that Hannity and Malkin were beaten with belts (and worse, according to Malkin). I have no sympathy for the adults they are now, but I feel for the children they were.
