Occupy Wall Street protesters’ threats against New York City is proof that the 2-month-old movement should be quashed, Sean Hannity said on his radio show today.

Although some protesters have vowed that they will try to shut down the New York Stock Exchange on Thursday, Hannity also broadcast a recording in which he said one of the protesters said he wanted to burn the city down.

“We’ve got the president approving the movement, we’ve got [House Minority Leader Nancy] Pelosi saying thank God for the movement, and now we’ve got specific threats,” Hannity said. “Now, they’re saying it’s going to be even more provocative.”

Hannity, who said President Barack Obama has incited the protesters’ anger, said, “It’s not a joke. They’re talking about Molotov cocktails and burning New York City to the ground. And where’s the president and all these congressmen and congresswomen and the mayor?”

According to the recording, protesters plan three major actions, including staging a rally at 7 a.m., fanning out to each of the five city boroughs and occupying subways, and marching to the Brooklyn Bridge, Hannity said.

“This is exactly what not to do when it comes to people that are lawless,” he said. “There’s a 99 percent out there in Obamaville that wants to take the money from the other people. Where did all the rhetoric come from? In large part, this has come directly from the White House. The person that has inspired them with his rhetoric, in my mind, is Barack Obama.”
