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."

Junior is right on. Jello is friggin' brilliant. Hank Sr. is a mental case. Sonny should hope he's adopted.

Right on, III. As for the person who said that Jello's name is a copyright infringement...Hank III and Jello are friends, so I don't think he'll mind ;)

Adolf Obamanation has as much blood on his hands a*****ler. His promotion of fatal experimentation on non-consenting living human beings would do Jozef Mengele proud. If that obvious parallel doesn't bother Our Imam/Fuhrer, he should recall the Tuskegee Syphilis Study, carried out for years IN THE US on unsuspecting poor, black men.

That is something Tom Parker taught Elvis. You are a musician. Paid to sing, not voice your opinion on political matters. If you open your mouth, you risk alienating your fans.

Jon- I know you are bound to read this bud. Long Live Sivle.

Just a clan of dirty, tobacco chewin', gun-totin', war lovin', pick up drivin', women beatin', Georg W. Bush votin' rednecks. Drunk, stupid, and beneath people like me. You frickin' right-wing nuts make me sick. Hank? I hope YOU and s*** like YOU vanish off the face of the earth....along with Fox News. The world will be a better place. Trust me. Jon Stewart is gonna have a grand time with this one:)

Well little Hank your daddy is an American and so are you so you do have a vested interest in politics in this country. All Americans should be concerned, especially with the jokers running the White House now.

If Hank,Jr had compared our Glorious Leader to Lenin or Mao,the lefties over at ESPN would have considered that a compliment. Hitler is only used for for Conservatives.

HW3 ROCKS so HARD!! It is ridiculous that his talent is not known by many, but that may be just they way he likes it. He sounds alot like his amazingly talented grand dad, when & only when he wants to, it is actually pretty chilling to hear some of his wailing stuff. I LOVE THIS MAN & his music. He is 100% right, of course, that most musicians & actors' policital opinions are just that, opinions & should not be taken as anything heavier. American society puts entirely too much weight on musicians/writers/actors, who should be praised & admired for their talent alone....not their every (mostly meaningless) thought. Again, can I just say.. Hank III is AWESOME, if you havent heard him, check him out. Mind twisting talent, for sure!!
