Last night, Sean Hannity continued to report on the increasingly mendacious former President Jimmy Carter‘s slanderous assertion that Americans who disagree with Barack Obama‘s policies are “racists.”

Hannity also ran a video clip of author, professor and “gangsta rap” expert Michael Eric Dyson, who ascribed any trepidations about Obama’s policies to “fear of a black planet and fear of a black man.”

Calling Dyson’s remarks “unbelievable,” Hannity then invited fellow talk radio host Mark Levin to comment on the growing controversy.

Levin deadpanned, “Jimmy Carter is a blowhard who has taken some very irresponsible positions (…) His positions on Jews in Israel are contemptible.”

Asked about the widespread perception that conservatives are somehow “anti-poor” or “anti-black,” Levin reminded viewers that, as President of the Landmark Legal Foundation, he and his team had spent years “litigating against the ACLU to liberate poor children from inner-city schools” through school voucher programs.

“And who stands in our way?” Levin asked. “The Democrat Party. And Barack Obama, who sends his kids to private school. So who’s on the right side of race in this country?”

Incidentally, Hannity noted that Mark Levin’s book Liberty & Tyranny passed a milestone yesterday (although you’d never know it if you relied on the “mainstream media” for your news): the hardcover edition has now officially sold one million copies.

That’s considerably more than Michael Eric Dyson’s Is Bill Cosby Right?: Or Has the Black Middle Class Lost its Mind? For that matter, it’s considerably more than the Jimmy Carter book that was just praised by none other than that noted literary critic, Osama bin Laden.
