Hank Williams Jr.'s Son

My Dad SHOULD NOT

Talk Politics

10/4/2011 6:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Hank Williams III
Hank Williams Jr.
's son -- Hank Williams III -- doesn't think his father should have opened his mouth about Obama yesterday ... telling TMZ most musicians are "not worthy" of a political discussion.

TMZ spoke with HW3 -- and punk rock-meets-country singer -- who tells us, "The only person out there worthy of mixing political views and music is Jello Biafra."

FYI -- Jello Biafra is the original lead singer of the legendary punk rock band Dead Kennedys ... who is now a big shot political figure in the Green Party.

As TMZ previously reported, Hank's dad's famous "Are You Ready for Some Football" jam was yanked from Monday Night Football last night ... after HW2 went on Fox News and proclaimed that President Obama and Joe Biden are "the enemy."

When we asked HW3 about his political views, he told us, "I'm a musician ... not a politician."

I don't think Hank Williams Jr said that **** Cheney was the enemy. Editors not at work yet?

Obviously HW2 shouldn't talk politics, the easiest job in the world just went up in smoke.

Did he just pick a booger, or is he pretending to smoke a joint? Maybe he's picking a scab off his lip.

I don't think TMZ should be discussing politics either. Joe Biden is the current VP, not **** Cheney!

Your also a citizen knucklehead, and as a citizen is not only our right, but are responsibility to question our political folk. It's Ok for your Dad to voice his opinion, but people need to realize it is just one mans opinion.

I wish all the idiots in hollywierd would get out of politics. The things they say are worse than what HW Jr. said, but since it is slanted so far to the left, nothing is done or said about it.

I will never understand why the American people give creadence to actors politics. They are professional liars. And they for the most part, live and work in the most immoral area in the country. There is a God, and he is not pleased with us.

Hank III is a hard-living, hard-partying rebel rocker, which makes people dismiss him. That's unfortunate, because not only is his music awesome, but he actually has a head on his shoulders! I would love for all the politicalized actors/musicians/entertainers to take a deep breath and realize, "Hey, I play pretend/make music for a living, so maybe I should just focus on that and not try to monopolize my fame to promote something totally unrelated to my skill set..."

Thanks for keeping it real as always, Hank III.

Every American has a right to their political opinion and can make it known. It's our right. Far left idiots in Hollywood do it all the time .. expecting the sheeple to listen and care about their far left wing lunacy rants. NO ONE CARES what musicians or actors say about politics, but they have a right to say it non the less.

Duh!!! He's an American, and it doesn't matter what you do for a living - you have an opinion, and are protected by that in the Constitution. Fox should not be afraid of HWJr.'s opintions. Many people think the same thing and agree with what he said. It's just politics as usual, while America goes to hell in a handbasket. Obama has done nothing since he was elected, and he admitted it! We need new leadership to get Americans back to work. People are suffering. People are homeless! And he's conducting his "meetings" on a golf course? Get back to the oval room and make good policies that help the American people!

Seems like a well-rounded kid.... not. BTW Jello's first name is copyright infringement. Just ask members of the group "Green Jelly".

Well, your dad is just an ignorant piece of white trash. It's not your fault. You can pick your nose, but you can't pick your parents.
