Hank Williams Jr.

My Obama Comments Were 'DUMB'

Hank Williams Jr.
is kinda, sorta, quasi backing off his horrible Obama-to-Hitler comparison -- calling the statements he made on Fox News "dumb" -- and apologizing for offending people.

Williams released a NEW statement on the matter -- saying, "The thought of the leaders of both parties jukin [sic] and high fiven [sic] on a golf course, while so many families are struggling to get by simply made me boil over and make a dumb statement."

He adds, "I am very sorry if it offended anyone. I would like to thank all my supporters. This was not written by some publicist.”

I must agree with Bocephus, his comment was dumb:
EVERY God-fearing America knows that Pharaoh, is more like
MUSSOLINI.

For ABC/Disney and the National Fraud League to take such
patently Fascist actions against an individual execising his
CONSTITUTIONALLY-protected First-Amendment Right, is equally
appalling and unconscionable.

This -and many other- inherently Anti-American assault upon
basic Freedoms, WILL NO LONGER BE TOLERATED.

If Hank feels so bad for all of the "struggling families", maybe he should fork over some of that Are You Ready For Some Football money to the poor and homeless.

Hank has been playing to rabid fans so long he forgets that the nation is divided almost 50/50. In the Southern mind it's 90/10 in their favor. We don't have free speech but we should. Big non-fed corporate Media own free speech and they determine whats fair or foul.

While Obama is a far sight from Hitler, he is fast approaching dictator status. He has blatantly violated the Constitution TWICE: starting a war in Libya without a congressional declaration, and he killed an American citizen without due process of law (Obamacare may well be unconstitutional too).

That does make him and enemy of liberty and the rule of law in my eyes. When you can simply ignore the Constitution repeatedly, it's not a far slide down to tyranny. The silence from liberals on this is deafening.

oh what sloppy hypocritical drama queens you are TMZ when it comes to carrying the liberal water bucket around the site.
I have heard many " Horrible" comments from liberals aimed at Bush ( also called Hitler) and American's ( called radical terrorist )who dont agree with the Obama failed experiment, far worse then Hanks.
