After comparing Obama to Adolf Hitler on Fox News country icon and notorious Republican Hank Williams Jr. said, of the president playing golf with house speaker John Boehner, “Come on, it’d be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu,” in a reference to the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu.
Obviously the two would clash, is the ridiculous point he was making on Monday morning – the man who ordered millions of Jewish citizens to death, hitting the links with the Jewish prime minister of Israel…
One of the Fox & Friends interviewers, understandably flabbergasted, said he didn’t understand the analogy, so Hank explained, “Well I’m glad you don’t brother cause a lot of people do,” implying that many people feel that Obama is like Hitler.
Incidentally, ESPN has removed the use of his song “All My Rowdy Friends” during the introduction to their Monday Night Football games. Williams said on the debacle, that he’s “always been very passionate about politics and sports” and this time it “got the worst” of him.
Williams issued a statement on his website that states:
“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”
ESPN, meanwhile, are most likely the ones who severed ties with HIM, since they also issued one indicting their choice,
“We have decided to part ways with Hank Williams Jr. We appreciate his contributions over the past years. The success of ‘Monday Night Football’ has always been about the games, and that will continue.”
THANK GOD THEY REMOVED THAT CRAPPY SONG FROM ESPN. Now I can only hope that Faith hill compares Hillary Clinton to Mary Queen of Scots, thereby resulting in the removal of her song from Sunday Night Football.
