SEAN HANNITY, HOST OF "HANNITY": But first, last year in an Esquire Magazine interview, Chris Rock went on a run calling the Tea Party, quote, "insane and racist." But when the left-wing Hollywood actor was confronted by one of my next guests about his comments, well, things got a little bit hostile.

All right. And joining me now with reaction, the author of The New York Times number one bestseller, Culture of Corruption, Michelle Malkin is back and the man who was attacked by Chris Rock that you just saw in that video, is the author of the brand-new book, Hollywood Hypocrites. Jason Mattera is back with us. All right. Well, that's interesting. You know, first of all, he didn't seem to want to take the picture with you. And then second, you ask him a question about his comments, what happened?
JASON MATTERA, AUHTOR, HOLLYWOOD HYPOCRITES: And he goes berserk, becomes unhinged and attacks my camerawoman, tries to wrestle the camera finally gets it from her hands and launches it across the room. It was Spike Lee's after party at the Sundance Film Festival. And when I saw Chris Rock, I said, you know, listen, I'm tired of celebrities like him who get away with maligning and besmirching millions of Americans who go to Tea Party rallies, waving their American flags, they have their baby strollers, they are concerned that Obama is spending their kids' future into oblivion and their character is maligned and no one holds Chris Rock accountable.
HANNITY: And that brings us to, Michelle, where we have been. And this ongoing debate about speech and selective moral outrage as we call. Let me give you an example. The First Lady Michelle Obama's going to be on David Letterman's program on Monday night. Let's just remind everybody, considering the Obama's want to be good examples and the President said lead by example for his daughters and for the rest of the country, let's look at the remarks of David Letterman.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
DAVID LETTERMAN, HOST OF “"LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN": Highlights of Sarah Palin's trip to New York City. And number two, bought makeup at Bloomingdale's to update her slutty flight attendant look.
PRESIDENT OBAMA: I'm going to try to lead by example.
LETTERMAN: During the seventh inning, her daughter was knocked up by Alex Rodriguez.
OBAMA: To send the message to all our young people, I'm going to try to lead by example.
BILL MAHER, HOST OF "REAL TIME WITH BILL MAHER": Speaking of (bleep).
ED SCHULTZ, HOST OF "THE ED SHOW": Maher decided to help President Obama out and give him a financial boost.
CHRIS MATTHEWS, HOST OF "HARD BALL WITH CHRIS MATTHEWS": He's donated $1 million.
MAHER: Last week, I said goodbye to $1 million. I made a contribution to Obama's Super PAC.
OBAMA: This ends up being a teachable moment.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HANNITY: Michelle, teachable moment, lead by example. Michelle Obama’s going on Letterman, Letterman attacked her daughter, attacked Governor Palin and then of course, there's Bill Maher and Bill Maher gave a million dollars to the Obama Super PAC.
MICHELLE MALKIN, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: That's right. And of course, that million dollars constitutes of full half of all the donations that Priorities USA, which is the Obama PAC, run by former flack Bill Burton, has earned over the last month. I mean, this is not just some two-bit comedian, unfortunately. This is somebody who is a heavy hitter in the Democrat Party who, had been scheduled to speak before the Alabama Democrats, down in the South that he maligned yesterday on Twitter. We've got the story at twitchy.com. Not only did he do that, but he said something even fouler and there's more disgusting.
HANNITY: I have both of those.
MALKIN: about Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum.
HANNITY: Let me put them up. You are talking about Bill Maher again. The Obama Super PAC. You know what? They’re not going to give back the money. They haven't -- we can't be the speech police Jay Carney said. But this is what he said on Twitter. "Toothless Tuesday, too tight to tally! And, “We're gathered around the magic picture box with a bowl of grits watching the returns come in!” And then he said, “Man, if Newt Gingrich was anymore of Rick Santorum would pray for the strength not to blank him.”
HANNITY: Pretty sick stuff. Now, let me play one of the thing here, Michelle because again, the Obama’s associate with David Letterman. They took Bill Maher's million dollar. You know, maybe in the case of Rush Limbaugh, maybe Rush Limbaugh just donated million dollars to the Obama Super PAC he can say anything he wants.
MALKIN: That's right. Give them full immunity.
HANNITY: Full immunity. That's what you buy with the million bucks. Here's Chris Matthews now attacking Mormons, talking about Mitt Romney. Let's roll that tape.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
MATTHEWS: Culturally, they’re out to lunch for the President. I am going on vote for President Obama. So, who do going to get to beat him? That's what seems to be on their minds on who they like. They’re willing to outsource it to a Mormon. It seems to be, if they can win, the guy said it so much like calling up India or somewhere in the third world to get you computer fixed. You don't care who's fixing it, just fix the damn computer. They want to get rid of Obama. So, they’re willing to vote for a guy they don't like and probably wouldn't trust his religion. But they have no choice. They got two RC's, two Roman Catholics running and Mormons, so there are three cultists running. They have to pick one of three cultists as they see him. This is not as funny as I'm making it but it is ridiculous. The picker guy they think is really the other, the heretic, the Muslim. What a strange stew of religious prejudices at work here? They pick the guy they don't like, to pick a guy they hate worse.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HANNITY: Outsourced to a Mormon.
MATTERA: You know, as I actually point out in Hollywood Hypocrites. Hollywood is made up of a bunch hate mongers. And this is part of the course of the -- we have Bill Maher as the tip of a very long iceberg. And Obama has no problem associating with them. You know, the problem is in 2008, we let ourselves get steam rolled by Obama's celebrity-fueled machine. And this time around, we have to be the ones doing the steam rolling. You know, Chris Rock wants to call us racist and insane. And then we go and confront him on it. And he becomes insane and unhinged. The right has to start fighting back or else, you know, the right has to start fighting back because if we act like wimps like we did in 2008, we will going to get another four years of Obama.
HANNITY: Michelle, let me ask you this next question through this.
MALKIN: Amen, brother.
HANNITY: Through this prism, Michelle. This is a serious question. Because you have you Media Matters and they are trying to silence Rush Limbaugh and his particular case, by attacking his advertising base. But this has gone on, the ignoring the liberal outrageous comments for a long time. And we can take this back 30 years. Let me just give you an example because this has gone on for 30 years. And I may have to come on and do a one-hour special on liberal hate speech. But the fact is they can remain silent all of these years. Let's just take a trip down memory lane in two instances.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: The man is on the court, you know I hope his wife feeds him eggs and butter and many black men do die of heart disease. Well, that's how I feel. I mean, he is an absolutely reprehensible person.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: I don't think - Jesse Helms defenders here.
UNIDENTIFIED WOMAN: Not me. I think he ought to be worried about what is going on in the good Lord's mind, because if there is retributive justice, he will get aids from a transfusion or one of his grandchildren will get it--
(END VIDEO CLIP)
HANNITY: I hope his wife feeds him eggs and butters so he dies young. And if this retributive justice, he gets aid. Here's my question.
HANNITY: This has gone on for a long time. Why this outrage over any comment of a conservative, but if you are a liberal, you get a pass. Why?
MALKIN: Well, we have talked about that. We have talked about the full immunity that every last liberal slime ball has. And the liberal tolerant emperors have no clothes. There is naked as a newborn baby. It is like the mother of all nip slips. When these people show their true colors, they have not a leg to stand on. And this is why books like Jason's, the work that he has done, we’ve worked together for years. He has confronted all of these Hollywood celebrities and these liberal hate mongers on Capitol Hill. He's one of the few people who has done it and done it so well, because all of these feckless Washington reporters won't do it.
And you say, you know, we’ve talked about how long this has gone on. Well, it stops, it stops right here and now this is where we draw the line. And we can push back because we have alternate media. We've got blogs. We've got the Breitbart empire, which still lives on. We've got talk radio. You do it on your radio show, every day for three hours a day, Sean. And the more that we can harness new media to get the message out there and push back against this narrative, the better. Because when you vet the president, you don't just vet the president, you are vetting Hollywood and you're vetting the media. And they don't like it one bit.
HANNITY: Very well said. Michelle, thank you as always. Great book. Congratulations.
MATTERA: Thank you Sean.
HANNITY: More video to come.
MATTERA: There are a lot more videos to come. Yes, sir.
HANNITY: You have been up to no good, Michelle. He has been up to actually real good, actually. We'll put it that way.
MALKIN: That's right.
HANNITY: All right, guys. Thank you for being with us.
