Country Superstar Likens Obama To Hitler

Country Superstar Likens Obama To Hitler

On a Fox and Friends interview Monday morning, country music icon Hank Williams Jr. said that he has little faith in the GOP’s 2012 Presidential hopefuls and very little in the party itself. He went on to liken President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler.

The tone was set in the interview with Williams that began with Fox commentators asking the musician whom he liked in the primary when he answered simply, “Nobody.”

Williams went on to explain why he has lost faith in the party.

“You remember the golf game? That was one of the biggest political mistakes, ever. That turned a lot of people off,” he said referring to the President’s famous bipartisan publicity golf game with Speaker of the House Jon Boehner (R-Ohio).

The Fox pundits became confused and seemingly alarmed as Williams continued. When asked what he did not like about the game, the musician let them have it.

“Come on, that’d be like Hitler playin’ golf with Netanyahu,” he said. “In the shape this country’s in.”

When the commentators pressed Williams and said that they did not understand the analogy he continued, “Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, ’cause a lot of people do. You know, they’re the enemy, the enemy.”

“Who’s the enemy?” the pundits asked.

“Obama and Biden, are you kidding, the three stooges,” Williams exclaimed.

Williams said that he believes that the country is more politically polarized than it has ever been and he does not think now is a time for bipartisanship. He also said that if he had to pick a GOP candidate right now, that Herman Cain makes the most sense recently.

At the conclusion of the interview, the commentators said that they “disavow” Williams’ comments.

Because of Williams’ comments, ESPN pulled the intro segment to “Monday Night Football” that features Williams’ song “All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night” and released the following statement: “While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

  • tom sherman

    I agree with Hank Williams!!!

    • CJ

      Me too, until he apologized. Stand behind your convictions!

      • JimH

        CJ, Hank should apologize. To Hitler.

        • Kate8

          I’m so glad Hank didn’t back down like Tony Bennet recently did. I lose all respect for those who speak the truth of their minds and then tuck their tail between their legs when the inevitable s**t hits the fan.

          Where was the outrage when really vile stuff was spewed when W was in office? I didn’t like him, either, but O seems to be untouchable.

          Right on, Hank. Never paid much attention to him before, but I’m a fan now!

          • eddie47d

            Another fan of a loud mouth drunk? Such a weakness and so easy you are!

          • BrotherPatriot

            U sure reveal yourself, eddie47d…

          • Kinetic1

            Kate8,
            Maybe you have forgotten about the Dixie Chicks. All they did was say they were embarrassed to be from the same state and they were boycotted on country radio.

          • JeffH

            Kate8, you’re correct…the fact that Hank Jr wasn’t PC just infuriates the libs…tough $hitzky I say. He never said Obama was Hitler…he just made the point that two opposites, Obama and Boehner, playing golf together and “high fiving it” was akin to Hitler playing golf with the Jews…a bad mix and a perfectly solid analogy even though it wasn’t PC for the ostrich crowd.

          • libertytrain

            eddie is close to all the stars so he knows their personal life well -

          • JeffH

            libertytrain, yet he still wallows aimlessly around PLD making vile, mean and nasty comments…calling others names and then feigns innocence…cleary a hypocrit to the nth degree.

          • Kate8

            kinetic – No, I haven’t forgotten the Dixie Chicks.

            The Chicks were on foreign soil when they proclaimed that they were embarrassed to say they are from America. Not only that, but it was shortly after 9/ll. And the backlash came from everyday Americans, who took it as a slap in the face.

            In Hanks case, he’s at home, and most of us agree with him.

          • libertytrain

            jeffh – yep, it does appear that way.

          • eddie47d

            I knew Jeff would wallow in what Hank Jr said. Must be looking through a window at himself.Isn’t that right “birds of a feather”. LOL

          • JeffH

            POLLY WANT A CRACKER?

          • DC/Tex

            Eddie47 is still kicking his fingers after picking up a turd on the clean end.

          • http://naver samurai

            I also see that ed has forgotten the number of “stars” that made BS speeches after Bush was elected and re-elected. How about Michael “Fatboy” Moore and Al Frankenstein? How about Al Gore making an arse out of himself after losing in 2000? The libs have a lot of people talking BS on their side also, now don’t they? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

            P.S. Seig Heil Obama!

    • Caroline

      The problem with this entire situation is that Hank Jr. did NOT liken Obama to Hitler. He compared the “situation” of Obama playing golf with Boehner. The “situation,” an ultra liberal democrat and a so-called ultra conservative playing golf together is like comparing the situation of the Jew-hater to the Jewish president getting together! He did not say Obama was Hitler! Although if he compared Obama with Stalin (socialist) I would have to agree. I do not, however, agree with his assessment of the candidates. Ron Paul, not Herman Cain, is the best candidate. Herman Cain is just a liberal (Fed) plant to draw votes away from the only true fiscal conservative candidate we have!

      • JeffH

        Correctomundo!

      • Lost in Paradise

        Not only that,his real allegiance is to the black community. First and foremost, no matter what he says. A republican version of the rabbit we now have in the house of horror.

    • ronald r. johnson

      Hank was right on the money! Why is it Obama went to a racist church whose pastor was/ is a racist for over twenty years and hates America and Obama had flown all over the world telling everyone how sorry America is [ and on the tax payer dime too] he ignores Christian Holidays and honors Muslim holidays and E S P I N and Fox have not said one word against it and when Hank Williams excersies his freedom of speech and E S P I N is all up in arms! Well E S P I N and Fox better watch out Hank has MILLIONS of fans to their Thousands and we will call, write and E mail all their advertisers telling them to drop them dead till Hank come back with a big fat raise and they tell the world how sorry they are!

    • ron

      I saw the interview. First that drunk could not put a coherent sentence together without pausing to correct himself. And most on this page would agree with Williams no matter what he called the president Even if he called him that vile word Perry half tried to paint over. There is nothing cute about calling a sitting president or anyone for that matter Hitler. Politically correct, he is not political at all. He is just one of many idiots out there who happens to have money and can afford Jack Daniels. Nowhere near as talented or smart as his father. Who by the way had his owns problems with the bottle. At least he was man enough to partially admit how stupid he was. Which is more than I can say for some others

  • http://www.easyinvest.co.za peter

    Well said Hank Williams. Strange how being honest hurts some people, especially those who cannot look one in the eye when they speak and continually talk out of the side of their mouth. Check them out and enjoy the laugh.

    • Kate8

      peter – It may hurt him as far as media backlash, but as far as the folks, he’s preaching to the choir. I’d bet that those who like him already agree with him. He may even get a bigger audience now.

      • JeffH

        Hear Hear!

      • http://naver samurai

        I second that motion! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        P.S. I guess the truth must really hurt by now.

  • Carl Holcomb

    I aggree with Hank the country is going to H*** in a hand basket and the politicians are living it up on our dollar. How about Hank running you might not like what he says but he gives it to you strait.He’s also right about Cain being the only one making any sence at this time.

    • Caroline

      Cain is a prior Fed employee and maintains that the Fed audits itself and doesn’t need to be eliminated. This in itself is enough in my mind not to trust him. Ron Paul is the ONLY one making any sense and is maintaining what he has said for over 30 years. And everything he has said in the past has come true! We need Ron Paul to straighten out this country!

      • michael lawson

        amen to that ,I would have thoght that Hank would have picked Ron Paul over Cain any day.

      • Lost in Paradise

        Thing is, there needs to be many many more like Ron Paul.

  • Patriot II

    Freedom of Speech, he can what he wants to, what’s the Problem?

    • ronald r. johnson

      Sadly, E S P I N, thinks only Obama, Rev. Wright, and Obama’s Cult and Czars are allowed to do that, but why is Obama President of the U S A can fly all over the world putting down America and having Tax Payers pay for it and not a PEEP out of E S P I N or Fox! Boy cott E S P I N and Fox!!!!!!!!!

  • Jody Laviolette

    Whatever had happened to “Freedom of Speech” in this country?

  • Roger Dorn

    Absolutely correct Hank. O is doing everything Hitler did right before he declared himself president for life. Please consider Michele.

    • BigBadJohn

      Funny – I thought is was Bush and company that suspended the constitution (Habius corpus) and started wire tapping all Americans illegally……

      • Dulceb

        Please, don’t think too much, you might hurt yourself.
        First, find a dictionary and the old 6th grade English grammar book and work on that for a while. Then, maybe, you can come back here and write comments.
        The Patriot Act has been extended by the people that are in the House and Senate now. It was never intended to be a long term thing.
        Bush has been gone for quite a while now. He is staying out of it. Please, leave him out of it and look to present leadership.

        • Al Sieber

          I’ll second that!!

        • BigBadJohn

          Like people like to point out, only the congress can write bills.
          So let’s hold those in congress accountable!
          Who was in charge of congress when the Patriot act was extended?

          • Buster the Anatolian

            I do believe it was the dems in control of both houses when it was renewed and expanded.

            The LWOT: Patriot Act renewed just before deadline

            BY ANDREW LEBOVICH | MAY 27, 2011

            May 2011, republicans control the house

          • independant thinker

            The democrats still had control of the senate and obama had to sign it for it to become (remain) law.

          • http://naver samurai

            Who was in charge and who had a super majority in 2009 till now, but has failed to try to overturn it? It sure isn’t the GOP or conservatives, now is it? FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • Tony Cheatham

          There is no present leadership! More like dictatorship. Throw all the bums out and start fresh

      • James

        John, Habeas corpus is a judicial order to someone holding a person to bring that person to court. And the U.S. Constitution has been essentially ignored by Congress for decades. It has exercised powers that weren’t delegated to it in Article I, Section 8.

        • Kate8

          James – You are so right. Congress doesn’t feel they have ANY limits on their power to legislate. After all, who’s going to stop them?

          The big joke about our system is that it requires those holding positions of power to be on the side of the people and care about upholding the Constitution. Where is the mechanism for the people to insure that gov’t doesn’t become an insider’s club holding all the cards (which they are), and find remedy when the gov’t turns on the people? Because there is no way to work within the system when it turns on us.

          Sure, we are supposed to maintain a militia. But when the militia becomes the target of a march larger war machine…and when the gov’t doesn’t recognize the right of the militia to exist…

          Don’t get me wrong…I have utmost respect for those who are willing to stand up to the bullies in charge…But next time around we need to maintain a “citizens army” that holds enough real authority to keep rogue politicians (and whoever) in check. Right now the people just don’t have any real representation…it’s become a situation of US vs THEM, and we are being herded in for the slaughter with no real way to fight back.

          We’d better come up with one…soon.

          • Dave Brown

            Kate,

            I’m in my fifties, so this is a dim memory from grade school; but when we were a young country and a public official broke his trust with the people who put him in office, the people would “tar and feather” the offender and then ride him out of town on a rail.

            I propose that we can probably still find the necessary tools to carry out this form of justice. All we need to do is get enough people to agree that the people currently in office have betrayed their oaths of office and therefore the public trust. (We just need to be sure noone from the EPA finds out about the tar barrels – there would probably be a fine involved for mis-application of a hazardous material)

            We just need some chicken feathers, barrels of tar and some wood rails; we all know where the offenders hang out…

          • Opal the Gem

            Dave, just be sure the EPA big-wigs are included in the entertainment.

          • Christine

            If we repealed the 17th amendment so Senators were appointed by the states, then the federal government would be kept in check. It seems so reasonable to use a popular vote to elect senators, but it knocked the carefully constructed checks and balances out of balance. Most of what the federal government does now would’ve been impossible to pass when the Senators were selected by the states.

          • James

            Tar and feathering has aa nice rich smell to it and Christine’s repealing the 17th Amendment is another good idea. And commenserate with that is no constitutional requirement for the public election of the president and vice-president – so stop voting.

  • Dave Brown

    I think Hank, Jr. has every right to say what he believes. Why do the idiots on Fox & Friends have to disavow anything? They didn’t say it.

    The idiot Bob Beckel implied yesterday on Fox that Hank, Jr. was drunk when he was on Fox & Friends, and that’s why he said what he did; as proof Beckel offered up the fact that Hank, Jr. was wearing sunglasses on the show. The only thing this proved is that Beckel is indeed an idiot.

    • Patriot II

      Dave, yea I agree, why did they did they do that? Maybe the term “discretion is the better part of Valor” explains it. They realize that the Liberal Media would stomp all over them if they didn’t, after all the Liberal Media HAS ALL of the power. They (the Liberal media) will be the ones that re-elect this current guy, what’s his name? It wasn’t Hitler, no Umm who was it again? their hero anyway.

    • Dulceb

      He always wears sunglasses. Is he drunk all of the time, or is it his image?
      Leave Hank alone. At least, he said what he thought.

      • Jibbs

        I can’t remember the whole story, but several decades ago he fell off a cliff and did some damage to his eye’s if I remember correctly.

        I agree with Hank, say what needs to be said, even if it hurts.

        • independant thinker

          It was a skiing accident. Falling off the cliff may have been a part of the accident but like you I do not remember much about it.

        • JeffH

          Jibbs, you’re correct…he almost lost his life from a near fatal fall off the side of Ajax Mountain in a mountain-climbing accident in Montana on August 8, 1975.

      • Missy

        Hank Williams, Jr. wears sunglasses all the time because he is blind in one eye.

    • James

      Dave B. Hank,Jr. had the right to say that, but the President also has the right to sue him for Defamation of Character.

      • Dave Brown

        He can’t even prove he was born in the U.S.; how on earth is he going to prove he has any character to be defamed?

        • Kate8

          I don’t think even the President can sue someone for stating an opinion.

          Although, he HAS assumed the authority to whack whomever he chooses.

          • James

            Anyone can sue anyone for Defamatiion of Character. He must prove, however, that the words used were false or malicious and caused him some loss of money or prestige.

        • Jibbs

          obama needs no help being defamed, he doe’s it everytime he opens his mouth. As for character, he has none.

  • Doc Sarvis

    He know admits his comments were “dumb”.

  • Monte

    Hank is one of those low-class, ignorant, unwashed Southerners. He will now be belittled, insulted, and denigrated, the reasonable norm in our society of equals. Horrors that Southerners should be given any political sway! Yahoo news today states Perry once supported Confederate symbols! We can now count him out of the running! After all, this proves him to be a racist ignoramus doesn’t it? Lucky we are – to live in the land of equality and to have great leaders that smart enough to know which people are more equal than others.

      You are right we live in a land of equality, where FREE SPEECH is protected under the Bill of Rights, even yours.

      What an idiot you are equating one person to all people from the south. You my friend have alot to learn, remember Al Gore is from up north with is statement when touring Monticello “…and who are these guys?” refering to busts in the room. They were the presidents. How dumb is that.

      You see there are dumb people from all walks of life, look at the people in Washington, I see alot of dumb educated people have have not figured how to pull thier heads out of thier a**es. I would gladly rent them a crane if they asked.

      Keep your stupid northern attitude to yourself and your like minded (I mean small minded) friends. What a jerk comment. Are you a jerk? The comment leads me to believe so.

      • Monte

        You have me laughing. Reread my post. It was pure sarcasm, showing the hypocrisy of the entire charade. As a Southerner I’ve had a lifetime of experience with it.

        • http://WeThePeople Jean

          I don’t even think that anyone other than a southerner would have known that – I guess the southerner that replied to you – just didn’t see that invisible BLESS YOUR HEART lerking in every space. Must have been a northern Infiltrator.

          I also read – what was it Black Planet said? Called him a bare foot – trailer living what ever.

        • Dulceb

          Monte, if I mistook your meaning, sir, I apologize. I get defensive when I even think someone is insulting the south.
          We are so stereotyped and misunderstood.

          • Monte

            That was exactly my point. Sorry I confused you. Deo vindice.

    • Dulceb

      Monte, you are a misinformed on Southerners and the Confederacy. The Civil War and Confederacy were fought initially on States Rights. This was a spill over from the Revolutionary War, where the southern colonists wished to remain loyal to the crown, but were forced by the North to join in their cause or be burned out of their homes or have other violence pushed upoon them and their families. The South contended that the States were sovereign over the Federal Govenment. For this, they seceded from union.
      Slavery was not an issue in the Civil War until 1863 when Abraham Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation in order to have a rallying point for the Union Army, as they were growing less interested in fighting a losing war.
      The years of 1860-1865 did happen, there was history involved. We are not at liberty to rewrite history, nor do we need to be ashamed of it. Remembering the south, for the good and the bad parts of history doesn’t make anyone a racist, a bigot, hater or anything else. It is a remembered heritage. It’s symbols are part of that. Should one chose to remain ignorant, or cruel and wish to use this heritage for evil, it can be likened to a person who uses the Bible out ot context to prove their own opinions.
      You sir, have insulted us and we will thank you to educate yourself and not let ignorance be your guide.

      • Isaac Davis

        The “War of Northern Aggression” and the “American War of Independence” were two entirely different situations, and to state that the South was full of Tories during the American War is effluent over the rim of the septic tank. You need to get your history and wars correct in every respect. Spewing nonsense in order to create a comparison is pure sophistry.

    • Jibbs

      Ignoramus! You watched “Deliverence” too many times!
      Come on down south……..we’ll show you what life is all about. We can show you how to survive, treat people with respect, enjoy life, work for you keep and fear God. Yeah, we carry guns, but have very low crime.
      If your car breaks down, 20 people will stop and help you, then put a home cooked meal in your belly.
      I could keep going, but people up north just don’t get it.

      • Monte

        You are totally correct! I love the South! Everything about it swells me with pride! I believe only someone from the South (Hank) could have made such a statement and it not be a cover for something else. He merely spoke his mind, what was obvious truth to him. Have you seen the videos of Ray Stevens making fun of the current moronic administration? Hilarious! To silence the South is a blatant attempt to silence Southern conservatism. Nothing new there!

      • http://at&t Gene Barrett

        I don’t know a lot about the Civil War, but I think we should be doing
        something about what Obumer is doing to the U.S. Hank spoke the truth
        so now get up in arms and blame Bush. Bush was not the best president,
        but he was not the worse either. Get our heads out of the sand.

    • Carol J

      Hee hee hee. Bet most people don’t get your humor. Hank Jr. was right. And he was not comparing Obama with Hitler, he was comparing the situations. I have always liked Hank Jr., and I grew up in a family of UC Berkely graduates and a Mother who disliked country, so it has nothing to do with being a Southerner.

    • JeffH

      Monte, I guess we can also say that Bill Clinton is clearly an ignorant southern racist by your analogy…it was Bill Clinton who is quoted as telling Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.), “A few years ago, this guy (Obama) would be getting us coffee.”

      It was also Harry Reid, during the 2008 presidential campaign, described Barack Obama as a “light-skinned” African-American “with no Negro dialect unless he wanted one.”

      When Hillary Clinton used her Martin Luther King Day tribute to accuse Republicans of running Washington like an Old South “plantation” – she knew whereof she spoke.

      In fact, when Hillary and Bill ran Arkansas, Dr. King didn’t even have a holiday in his honor – at least not all to himself.

      Instead, Arkansans celebrated a combination holiday that honored both King and Robert E. Lee, the Confederate general who fought to allow the South to keep blacks enslaved.

      And that wasn’t the only example of the kind of plantation politics that characterized the Clintons’ rule in Arkansas. According to a 1997 Washington Times report:

      “As governor of Arkansas, Mr. Clinton signed a law in 1987 that says the top blue star in the state flag symbolizes the Confederacy. Then-Gov. Clinton also issued proclamations designating a birthday memorial for Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy.

      “In addition, during his 12 years as governor, Mr. Clinton made no effort to overturn a state law that sets aside the Saturday before Easter as Confederate Flag Day.”

  • Jody Laviolette

    Liberty must not die in this great country of ours. Hank Williams Jr. was simply giving his opinion which he has the “Right” to do because of Liberty. That what makes these United States of America so “Great”. Hank Williams Jr. is a true Patriot and I’m 100% behind him. May God Bless Hank Williams Jr. And May God Bless The United States of America.

        • Monte

          I will avoid sarcasm in the future. Seems a lot of folks misunderstood. I was merely illustrating the liberals’ hypocrisy of chanting equality while, at the same time, denying it to certain groups. The British clinical psychologist, Theodor Dalrymple, has a book out, In Praise of Prejudice, where he shows that prejudice is always present – in everything. The hypocrites that denounce prejudice the most are themselves prejudiced against anyone that they believe is prejudiced. Liberals are quick to come to the rescue of any group they believe to be oppressed, even fags, and begin to chant ‘equality’ and ‘prejudice’. But they show themselves to be prejudiced against, and ready to deny equality, to conservatives, Christians, Southerners, and anyone else that doesn’t agree with them.

    To Doc Sarvis, We Americans are not crying for Hank Williams. He will be okay. We Americans are crying out for our Freedom and Liberty to come back into this country.

  • Morduin00

    Hank has a right to say what he said. He also must take the consequences for his words. If ESPN chooses to pull his work from their show it is their right. And they may suffer consequences for that as well.

    The long and short of it is, we need to be responsible only for our own actions, not anyone else. Freedoms only exist when they do not trample on the rights, health and safety of others. We need to be judicious with our own actions and words.

    If I may paraphrase Thomas Paine in Common Sense… if we respected each other, we wouldn’t need government.

    • Push comes to Shove

      You are correct about words/actions having consequences, but i would like to see the MSM hold Dems to same amount of accountability.

      Unlike other talking about the Tea Party or Conservatives, Hank did not call the president Hitler, he only made an analogy of people on extreme opposite ends as with the Conservatives and Liberals are at this time. He could have used a better analogy, but it got our attention didn’t it.

      I don’t believe the O man is Hitler, just the antichrist, no big whoop!

      • James

        Push, Anti-Christ refers to someone who denies that Jesus is the Messiah, the incarnation of God, who was to come. I don’t believe the President has ever denied that Jesus was the Messiah. Biblically, John, the Disciple Jesus loved, identified ‘Jews’ as the anti-Christ.

  • tom b409

    Just as Hank has the right to express his opinion in this country, so does ESPN have the right to drop his employment. Folks tune into football for entertainment, not polital discussment, or do we take ESPN’s rights away because they choose to be apolitical on an entertainment program.

    • Push comes to Shove

      Correct, they are entertainment, so why did they decide to get political and pull his intro? As it was a purely political move, no one who watches Monday night football is going to boycott because Hank spoke his mind, football fans just want to watch the game.

      ESPN made it political!

  • Donna

    Ugh this Hank thing is driving me crazy. The Left is going nuts over this. Hank did *not* liken Obama to Hitler, if so he would have said something like “Obama is like Hitler”. Easy enough.
    He was simply making an analogy –albeit a really bad one.
    The Left needs to shake it off, and get on with life. Their own leader has said worse, mocked the Bible, lied so much that if he said “the sky is blue”, we’d have to go look.

    “Ol Hank can plow a field all day long and catch catfish from dusk til dawn” then Fox and ESPN want to ask him questions but do not want him to speak his mind???? It seems that it is all about being “Politically Correct”…but Hank is concerned with being real! If they asked me what I thougth of Obama, it would not have come out as sweet as Hank said it, but the media (thought shapers) and power brokers (those who can reward or punish you for sharing your opinions) do not want to hear what I have to say. The bottom line from me is this: Lets get rid of these crooked politicals and give them a toilet brush and have them clean the bathrooms at McDonalds… one of the only viable business let in rural America. Hank can croan on, and those of us that are left with a shotgun, a rifle and a four wheel drive…we’ll definately survive. Thanks Hank for being you, and thanks Fox…for crawdad’in on the couch.

    Hank Jr. is a Hard partying, hard drinkin’ character in the country music scene and has few friends out in that genres legion of performers. He certainly looked loaded to me when he was interviewed. He said it and now has apologized. Most of the media was making their normal commentary which is what all media types do, right and left. I haven’t seen anyone commenting today so they move on while this media blog is still pointing fingers and pokin’ a stick at the hated “Liberal Media”. Not one tried to stifle him but he must have felt something in his heart to apologize.

    No one is obligated to like or dislike what Williams said. What matters is that while the 1st Amendment is gasping for air, Americans are entitled to use it. If that offends someone, then let those retards be offended.
    Sometimes, you are obligated to offend people, just to get their attention and try and make sure that they’re even human. At least
    Williams wasn’t a perfect airhead and said ‘Resist we much.”

    I don’t agree with Hank’s comments when comparing our president to Hitler. Otherwise the remainder of his comments seemed to be spot on
    IMO. Further it is bad for any American to make such comparisons as the send the message to my fellow Americans that simply doesn’t stand up under scrutiny historically speaking, breads hate and discontent in a time when as Americans we have the power collectively to reverse any course this or any other administration has pursued if we so choose, and hate speech of this sort only breads upon itself and creates more problems for us as a Nation. Hank needs to stick with country music which he is very good at and I am a fan of.

    Perhaps ol’ Hank didn’t fully realize the level of their control over him until now…but I’m sure he’s gettin it now. So he very well may try to back off and such from his earlier position.

    However that said, his attitude at that time speaks volume’s as the truth was bursting out of him. He genuinely believed in what he was saying that we have an “Enemy”.

    We all must react as a society to that above statement! There is an enemy and they are linked together and they are attacking our foundations from within! Follow the clues & do your research!

    Wake up & God Bless!

    • Jeep

      BP, it’s not about control, it’s about conscience. Liberal weirdos spout all sorts of nonsense about anyone who disagrees with them. Some of the most vile and hateful rhetoric comes from the left. And, when called out, they will refuse to back down or “apologize”. They truly believe that a personal attack is justifiable. And, I believe they really hate the right, not just the policies, the people too. Also, it helps that they get a free pass in the media.

      The right, however, has a problem with conscience. We know that it just isn’t right to say personally hateful things. Sometimes the right does make personal attacks, and most of the time this is followed by an apology. But, take it in context, it’s not that the sentiment was wrong, only the personal nature of the attack was wrong. We don’t hate lefties, just their policies. And, we take it on faith that everyone may see the light someday. Now just wait for the resident libs to attack this post…it should be fun.

      • BrotherPatriot

        Not sure if you followed what I was actually trying to say. That we have a ruling body…an Oligarchy…that has been in control of things now for a very long time.

        It certainly isn’t about money anymore…it’s about power & control of the masses. It’s not about money because they control the worlds wealth, control the market and can print money from thin air if they really want to.

        No my friend…it’s not about money anymore at all…it’s all about power & control.

        The sooner we awaken to what these people have been doing…the sooner we can turn all this crap around. It all only makes sense when you look at life with the knowledge that there is this secret cabal who have thier own Agenda that they are following.

        God Bless.

  • Jeep

    While first it must be reiterated that there was no comparison of oman to Hitler, Hank did refer to the administration as “the enemy”.

    But, since our resident liberals always like to remind us of W, it would be interesting to pull up the lengthy list of celebs that called W everything from a Nazi to Hitler to the Anti-Christ.

    In fact, where are our resident libs now? Let’s see, eddie says “Why would we expect anything different from the mouths of right wing extremists.” Oooh, good one ed! And, referring to Hank as a “loud mouth drunk”. Nice! tom b409 says “A heavy drinking , drug consuming entertainer likening one or the other of our elected officials to Hitler should drive you crazy.” Did you say the same thing when Harold Pinter, Corin Redgrave, Ted Rall, Jay Baker, Aaron McGruder, Linda Ronstadt, Rex Curry, Michael Bramante and other “cele-brat-ies” compared W to Hitler? I think not. And, doc you will not have to “cry” for Hank, he is already far more successful than you will ever be.

Hank was quite diplomatic in his choice of words. Moreso than most Americans would have been – me included. NEVER apologize for being right.

  • BetTal

    I have to say that I agree that what he compared was the situation not the men. But hey, if the shoe fits. The big thing is that it makes no difference whether he was talking about the situation or the men. We still have freedom of speech in this country or at least for the time being we do. I respect people who speak their minds especially when it is an unpopular opinion. I agree with him of course, but whether I agree or not, it is his right to say what he feels. He should be respected for that.

      I just knew one of you would come up with this excuse. Sure, Hank has the right to his opinion and the right to express it, but freedom of speech does not mean freedom from repercussion in the private sector. Palin has the same problem understanding what freedom of speech is all about.

      • Jay

        You know Kinetic, it matters not what someone will say, regardless, there will always be some oversensitive, bleeding heart that will take issue with it. So save your holier then thou speech regarding responsibility, which, for the most part, is a tool issued to silence free-speech. How about you grow a pair sir, and realize, that not everyone thinks and speaks as you do! Were you offended by what Hank said? Why? In my opinion, Hank was speaking the truth! You don’t like it? Tough!

  • http://n/a Betty L. Alexander

    I love you, Hank. When I was growing up, my dad always had a Hank Sr. song on. Now I know why. Just plain, common, every day people. I read the book on Hank Jr.’s first few years in the business. He had an illness that he has finally learned how to cope. If the bigwigs don’t like what he has to say, then tough. I am glad he said what he did. More power to you. The little man needs someone to stand up for us.I love you, Hank.

  • Daylo

    More often than not, when someone actually has the guts to put their money where their mouth is, that means they have the conviction of what they are saying. I commend Hank Williams. Fox shouldn’t ask the questions if they can’t take the heat. Everyone is extremely “afraid” to hear what someone has to say using their first ammendment rights unless they are in the mainstream and politically correct.

    Here’s the deal, we have way too many special interest groups with too many requirements upon us, both in our first amendment rights, as well as other rights. We have these special groups protected from “hate speech”. We have people who look the other way when illegal aliens cross the border – the laws are not being obeyed, but just today I heard that a woman was arrested because her car registration was outdated. Okay, does this seem equitable to any of you? No!!!

    Where in the constitution or the Bill of Rights does it state you have the right to make others shut up because you are offended? No where, man. So be offended and get over it. Who really cares if you are offended? I am offended daily by what I see on television and hear on the news from the left, but for some odd reason the first amendment door for the left only swings one way. Don’t like it? Tough! Get over it!

    Or as the old folks used to tell us growing up…don’t like it? Too bad, so sad, you have a long time to get glad.

    Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

That is not the same as saying that O IS Hitler! Okay, it was a bad analogy. What ticks me off is that the Left used the “Hitler” reference to Bush many times in his two terms, but you can’t criticize the’anointed one’ because of his skin color? What happened to freedom of speech?

    no comparison, Hitler was much smarter.
