Hannity

Documentary Filmmaker Fights Against Liberal Anti-War Movement

This is a partial transcript from "Hannity & COLMES:," July 5, 2006, that has been edited for clarity.

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: A page tonight from the "Hannity and Colmes" notebook. The U.S. Navy has been troubled with environmentalists.

The National Resources Defense Council recently got a restraining order to keep the Navy from using some of its sonar equipment, because it might harm whales and other marine mammals. The Navy was supposed to begin warfare exercises off the coast of Hawaii this week involving eight nations, 40 ships and six submarines. But at least Shamu is safer now.

And meanwhile, in a new documentary, a former Hollywood talent agent leaves Tinseltown behind to see what the Iraqis themselves think of the liberal anti-war movement.

PATRICK DOLLARD, FILMMAKER: You came up to me the other day and said, "Are you coming by the tent to talk about that little bitch, Michael Moore?"

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He's a little bitch. He's a little — I want to face him. I want him to say like, "Hey, this is blah, blah, blah about Iraq." But, like I don't — I don't think so. He has the power or he is brave to face an Iraqi.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Kill Michael Moore. Kill Michael Moore.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COLMES: Filmmaker Patrick Dollard joins us now.

Aren't we fighting for someone's right to be a little bitch, if that's what someone wants to do?

DOLLARD: Are we fighting — yes we are fighting for someone's right to be a little bitch. But are you saying that we're also — that Hos (ph) does not have the right to call Michael a little bitch?

COLMES: No. But he has also the right — anti-war people have the right to protest, the right to speak.

DOLLARD: Alan, you have not been able to display one bit of footage or one quote from me saying that people do not have that right.

COLMES: I understand that. You liken being a Republican in Hollywood today to being a communist in the '50s? Is it really that bad?

DOLLARD: Well, OK, again, let's try to be fair here. We want to be accurate tonight, don't we?

COLMES: Yes, tell me.

DOLLARD: OK, great. The second sentence that appeared in that column, which you quoted, said, "I do not want to overstate the case." We all know that there were people during the '50s who suffered a tremendous, you know, amount.

COLMES: Right.

DOLLARD: Probably far greater than is on average in Hollywood today.

COLMES: Right.

DOLLARD: OK? So let's not try to say that.

COLMES: But people today who are anti — go ahead.

DOLLARD: The point being there is a bias, an incredibly strong bias in Hollywood that denies people work, that...

COLMES: Who's been denied work?

DOLLARD: OK, a close friend of mine at MTV was told by her producer - - excuse me...

COLMES: What about the Dixie Chicks can't get their music played? Is that also being denied?

DOLLARD: What — OK.

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: You've been there seven months?

DOLLARD: I had a friend at MTV who was told by her boss that if she had known she was a Republican, she never would have hired her.

HANNITY: Patrick, we don't have a lot of time. You were there seven months with these guys.

DOLLARD: Yes, sir.

HANNITY: The truth isn't being told, is it?

DOLLARD: No, it's not being told. And you can hear — you know, my voice barely counts. You can see it over and over and over again in the tapes that I have. And I would love to present them more to you personally so you can make a decision and show more to America.

HANNITY: I know. I want to see them. But you know something. We have Cindy Sheehan — we played the tape earlier on the program today — accusing our troops of being rapists, war criminals.

DOLLARD: Right.

HANNITY: We have congressmen doing it, Jack Murtha accusing them of killing civilians in cold blood, John Kerry saying that we're terrorizing women and children.

DOLLARD: Correct.

HANNITY: What do these guys think of that?

DOLLARD: The troops?

HANNITY: Yes.

DOLLARD: They're incredibly disheartened. They're dispirited. These are kids who volunteered: A. in the first place. I have tape after tape to prove to that you there are kids there who were sent there the first time and volunteered to go back.

HANNITY: This is an important question. The left is undermining their effort.

DOLLARD: True. The left is absolutely...

HANNITY: And stabbing them in the back?

DOLLARD: Yes. And you want to know why? For the most disgusting of reasons.

HANNITY: Politics.

DOLLARD: They want to win the next two election cycles.

HANNITY: That's right.

DOLLARD: The left has no real interest in analyzing Iraq for what it is.

HANNITY: And it's led by people like Kerry and Murtha and Cindy Sheehan and anyone else that's out there.

DOLLARD: Absolutely.

HANNITY: You can disagree, but this is different.

COLMES: Apparently, you can't disagree. You can't say they're fighting for freedom and then say to the left you can't speak; you're a traitor.

HANNITY: You can't call them rapists and war criminals. They're calling rapists, war criminals, killing in cold blood.

COLMES: You can't do that.

DOLLARD: A. without evidence.

COLMES: The prime minister of Iraq said cold blood, by the way. We thank you very much for being with us.

HANNITY: John Murtha said it. There's no proof.
