The country singer's comments at the Iowa State Fair come during a month in which musicians have been particularly vocal about their politics.
Hank Williams Jr. is giving the encore no one really asked for.
The country star, who caused a stir last year by comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler, unleashed more sensational criticism of the Commander in Chief at the Iowa State Fair Friday.
According to the Des Moines Register Williams told the crowd: "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!"
The controversial comments went over well with the crowd, which responded with cheers.
Williams has a history of speaking his mind about Obama. Last year, ESPN dropped Williams All My Rowdy Friends from its Monday Night Football broadcast after he appeared on Fox & Friends and criticized House Speaker John Boehner for playing golf with the president, calling it "one of the biggest political mistakes ever."
"It's like Hitler playing golf with [Israel Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu," he said.
Last month, Williams again hammered at the president by releasing a politically charged album, Old School, New Rules.
Hey Barack pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you'll know where to go, Williams sings on the track Take Back Our Country.
When the album was released, Williams said he didnt mind if people didnt agree with the albums political message.
If you like it, fine; if you don't, great ... People everywhere from New York to California can't take it anymore, and they are ready for a change."
Williams isnt the only musician to speak out about politics in colorful ways this month. Megadeth singer Dave Mustaine claimed Obama staged the July shooting in Aurora, Colo. as part of a secret, anti-gun agenda.
Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello slammed presidential candidate Mitt Romneys vp pick, Paul Ryan, as clueless." Romney also had trouble from indie rockers Silversun Pickups, who mocked his campaign for using one of their songs without permission.

Hah! Tell us what you really think, Hank...
What I want to know is what the heck is 2ndDivisionVet doing reading the Hollywood Reporter? Have you gone “wobbley” on us? ;>)
Always did like *sumptin* about that boy, Hank Jr. that is.
He’s a good one!
That's good'un, Missie, LOL.
Nope, I saw a mention of the story at the Grio, looked it up and many of the articles were at places we’re not allowed to post here, like the Des Moines Register and some others. The Hollywood Reporter had the best version of those I could link to. BTW, I’ve posted threads from there before, once in a blue moon. Many of the most interesting Chick-fil-A stories came out of the homosexual press, since they are the ones who instigated that whole mess.
LOL. I had to git yer attention some how, some way, Cajun!
Ya should see the rest of them Cajuns when I start talking *Red Neck Cajun*, they don't know what to make of it :^)
I’d love to be there with y’all one of these days!
I note that your list has wheedled down to two.
Yup, I'm sad to say.
Those Mississippi guys can really talk the Southern talk! You guys too.
Yep, down to two. I hear ya.
GOOD to see you! I miss ya, but understand.
Ft Hood, a work place event. Need we say more?
When Hank sobers up, his handlers may persuade him to apologize ... but I hope not. It’s all only the truth, after all.
The man says it almost as well as I do and we are both right.
We have a racist Muslim in the White House.
Come on Hank, tell us what you really think of O’Bummer. And don’t sensor it!!!
I agree, I use the homosexual sites for many of my threads as they offer insight as to how the left is thinking. Hold your friends close and your enemies closer as the adage goes.
On the other hand, Leftists seldom get beyond "You're hateful", "Mean-sthpiwited", "Hypocrite" (for what?), "homophobe", etc.
What list, love?
If Hank keeps talking like that we may have a new candidate for president that can sing.
A couple of years ago I got to spend some time with Hank before a show. What he said here was tame to what he really thinks. He knows about FR too. Nice fellow IMO.
My *tag line*.
Used to be a few more things on it, have whittled it down somewhat over time.
He keeps going like he's going, he may be added ON my tag line of conservatives I trust.
He had a few stumbles when starting out (Voted in favor of Pigford reparations, came out against drilling off of the Florida coast and took a minor slap at the tea party), but appears to be kicking *Rat* rear end on a regular basis now.
We'll see if he continues to walk the walk in the future and not just talk the talk.
"We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!"
