Hank Williams Jr. compares Obama to Hitler
Fox and Friends

Posted on 10/03/2011 5:20:21 AM PDT by 3boysdad

Did anybody else see Hank Jr. compare Obama to Hitler (or something like that) on Fox and Friends this Morning? I can't find any footage or stories on it - probablly still too early. I didn't see it as I was in the other room and overheard it. Gretchin Carlson appologized for his statement after the interview and said that Fox did not endorse it. It cracked me up. I'd really love a Youtube clip if anyone can find one.

Yep he said it this A.M. At the end of the interview Gretchen added a disclaimer that Fox did not agree with him.

I am just glad there are still some men in country music who aren’t Hussein cultists. Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley, and a few others are apparently REALLY big fans of the commie.

If this causes a stink I hope Fox plays all the instances of Bush being called Hitler or worse.

I saw him say it but missed Gretchen’s apology tour. You could tell she, Steve and Brian were all uncomfortable. They were asking about Obama & Boehner playing golf and Hank Jr. said it would be like Netanhayu playing golf with Hitler. Hard to believe it has been 20 years of Hank singing “Are You Ready for Some Football?”. Then I was off to fix breakfast and lunches for the kids.

Love Hank Jr! I remember seeing him with Sarah Palin in 08 in Richmond. He had a campaign song for Sarah that was awesome. I’ll have to look it up.

Did Fox say the did not agree with him,
or that the comments may not reflect the views of this station?

I didn’t see it either. but I would wager a bet he might be talking about the Socialist MO.

Hitler got people all worked up over the Jews. He cured the unemployment problem by creating a MASSIVE military buildup. (Gov.Jobs) He confiscated the wealth of the country.

When he saw his plan A was getting ready to collapse, he started on the Russians, plan B.

I’ve come to the Conclusion that Socialism is a mental illness. It is failed people with an exagerated since of paranoia that someone is at fault for their failures as human beings.
for Hitler is was the Jews.
For Obama it is the evil capitalist. although he is in bed with them (H had Jewish Blood), if it means he gets to keep power for a few more years he will attack.

One thing they all have in common is that their first instinct to any problem is to destroy civil society.

actually their plan is on track. Colleges are graduating students that can’t find work. UE figures are through the roof.

Sadly people are ready to reliquish their freedoms for a few
coins.

I noticed the same thing. It looked like he made the FNF crew a little uncomfortable.

they'll hound this poor man out of his NFL opening song over this

It's a shame but the left is vicious and any opinion contrary to their own must be crushed

It's his opinion and to silence him is wrongheaded

There certainly are any number of similarities

And no one seemed to have a problem calling Bush a Nazi or Hitler or drawing Bush with a Hitler mustache

I have to disagree with Hank, on this one.

Hitler built Germany up.

0bama is tearing America down.

Freedoms won’t mean much if people have no job, no food, and no home.

HW jr. is always “out of it,” even when, like today, he’s not drunk or high on illicit drugs.

I used to violate Godwins law all the time and compare Obama to Hitler. But it was really his FOLLOWERS that were like the followers of Hitler.

Obama, as he has exercised his position, is really much more like Mussolini.

I laughed while watching that. The three Fox hosts had horrified looks on their face as Hank carried on.

Then Hank said something like “if you are going to ask me questions like that, then I am going to say what I think”.

I could tell Brian had that thing in his ear telling him to change the subject.

It was really funny.

ditto!

He got up before putting his brain in gear. He did, however, show a lot of enthusiasm for Herman Cain - which was refreshing!

2007 Campaign promise was the first post racial President, bipartisan President we had.

Has divided Americans more than any President in history.

Media gave us the most unprepared President in the history of the United States at a time where Media has a 24/7 cycle, yet could didn't want to vet the Alinsky trained candidate.

What Hank was talking about was the infamous golfing four some earlier this year.

He believes, and IMHO rightfully so, that the Republican and Democratic positions are so opposed that photo opportunities like the golf game are absolutely useless.

He called the Democrats our enemies. That rocked the Fox and friends team back on their heals. When the, the Fox and Friends hosts, pushed the issue Hank said something along the lines of:

“Us playing gold with the Democrats make as much sense as Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu”.

This was immediately followed with one of the hosts saying:
“Did you just compare Obama with Hitler?”

Hank was point out the idiocy of socializing with Democrats but it was the Fox and friends host that linked Obama and Hitler, not Hank.

A bit off topic, last on HBO’s “Hung” there were two slams on 0bama.

1) When Tanya started to talk about 0bama’s small business loans Ray told her to shut her mouth.

2) When Ray was with the two women from the bank, the female loan officer said under Bush loans were “flying out the door”.

3) btw, Rebecca Creskoff is hot. She's 40 but looks 30.

When Hank was done, a few minutes later, they Fox and Friends had no problem playing Roseanne Barr talking about beheading people.

Freedoms won’t mean much if people have no job, no food, and no home.

That is the strategy of Cloward/Piven and Obama. Kill the free market system so the populace believes it has no choice but to relinquish its freedom and turn to the government.

I’ve been comparing the two for a long time, too. Just a quick look at the history books makes what’s going on now look like history repeating itself.

Note that Obama and his evil minions are stirring up the class warfare thing in a pretty big way—now his leftie fans and the union thugs are “demonstrating” against “greed”—trust me, the real greed is within those who want to take what other people have, and that is what is afoot here.

Wouldn’t surprise me if their true goal is to create a violent revolution—to be put down by martial law, of course, with all rights suspended. Now, haven’t we seen something like this before, say in the 1930s?

No. They acted as though it was funny.

Then, they let Lopez sit there and tell fat jokes about Christie while they laughed, with no disclaimers that his views were not that of FOX News.

Every once in a while these news idiots run up against people that are going to answer their questions point blank.

I was amused by the look of horror on their faces. LOL

He did not compare Obama to Hitler. He used a metaphor to show the disparity in viewpoint between dems and conservatives. There is as much difference between dems and conservatives as there is between Netanyahu and Hitler.

We do ourselves no favors by pressing figures of speech beyond what they were intended. IMHO

It’s been a long time since I’ve watched Fox & Friends. I just can’t stomach it anymore - I hate the silliness - seems like every time I tune it in (to give it another chance), there are either cheerleaders, penguins, tricycles or something else silly.

I really just want to hear the unvarnished news first thing in the day - not entertainment. In fact, I have a hard time watching anything on Fox anymore - they are not the Tea Party’s friend & they are so in the tank for Romney that it is pathetic.

These kinds of comparisons are wrong regardless of which side is doing it. I’ve been to Dachau and know what Hitler did to the Jews. Obama is the worst President in my lifetime, but his transgressions don’t warrant comparisons like this. This kink of stuff doesn’t help the conservative movement. Just my 2 cents.

I’m glad he said what he did - have you EVER seen a liberal ‘hold back’? Liberals will call for elections to be suspended - and we can’t make this kind of comparison? Gimme a break.

Obama is going to try (you can tell that by his moves of late to foment a race/class war)...but it will by no means be bloodless. The “red” areas of the country are armed and will rise up.

On their afternoon show The Five, they let Bob Beckel sit there and say all kinds of awful things with no disclaimers.

I think the deal is that it is okay to say bad things about republicans, but we have to disclaim everything a person on the right says, otherwise we will be harassed.
