The Hateful History Of Debbie Schlussel, Pundit Who Accuses Sean Hannity Of Harassment

Debbie Schlussel, the conservative pundit who claims Fox News host Sean Hannity made unwanted sexual advances toward her, has a controversial record of comments on Islam and other topics.

Schlussel, who has written for numerous publications, in addition to appearing on shows like “Hannity” and “Howard Stern,” celebrated the death of Osama Bin Laden by calling for the killing of all Muslims on her blog. “1 down, 1.8 billion to go,” she wrote on her blog.

She added, “American Muslims are NO different than (other) Muslims…They are just as extreme, and the American border is a fiction of convenience for them, NOT something that magically moderates them.”

Schlussel is Jewish, and was born in Michigan, where more than two decades ago she made a losing run for a congressional seat. She blamed the defeat on voter fraud.

She’s made other polarizing comments, including blaming Poles for the Holocaust and saying that a lesbian basketball player was a bad role model for children.
