Hank Williams Jr. Likens Obama To Hitler In Uncomfortable Fox and Friends Interview
MEDIAite ^ | Oct. 3, 2011 | James Crugnale

Country music singer Hank Williams Jr. compared President Obama to Adolph Hitler in an awkward interview Monday morning on Fox and Friends. Williams called the golf summit the president had with Speaker of the House John Boehner “one of the biggest political mistakes ever.” “It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK?”

Williams appeared on the program to share his thoughts on politics, but the segment got weird early on as the country music star curiously sulked with his arms crossed.

Anchor Gretchen Carlson asked Williams who he liked in the GOP race, which he replied “Nobody.” A shocked Steve Doocy exclaimed, “Nobody!?”

This triggered Williams to bash Obama and Boehner’s golf game and compare the president to Hitler. All three Fox and Friends anchors sat nonplussed in utter bewilderment.

”Yeah, I don’t understand that analogy, actually,” responded a perplexed Brian Kilmeade.

“Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, because a lot of people do,” Williams snapped. “You know, they’re the enemy. They’re the enemy.” Kilmeade was thrown for a loop. “Who’s the enemy?”

“Obama!” Williams thundered.

Following the bizarre interview, Carlson disavowed the comparison of the president to the Nazi leader. “I just want to say that we disavow any of those comments or analogies that he’s made, at least I’m going to say that, disavow the analogy between Hitler and the president.”

Fakebook is good for sumpin, I tell you. I LIKE'd Hank hearing about this brouhaha (an oversight why I hadn't done it much earlier as I'm a nut about just two kinds of music: country and western), and here comes Hank's statement there:
“Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme – but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me - how ludicrous that pairing was. They’re polar opposites and it made no sense. They don’t see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.”

“Every time the media brings up the tea party it’s painted as racist and extremists – but there’s never a backlash – no outrage to those comparisons… Working class people are hurting – and it doesn’t seem like anybody cares. When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job – it makes a whole lot of us angry. Something has to change. The policies have to change.” – Hank Williams, Jr.

The Headline should be followed by a (BARF) alert.

Total left wing drivel.

Exactly. I wish people would do some basic research before jerking their knee.

The fact the three brain dead zombies Fox hired for the morning show hadn't had enough caffeine yet to wake up their comprehension is no reason to take it out on Hank.

LOL Better to have others believe you might be stupid and keep your mouth shut than to open it and remove all doubt.

Gosh, does he ever!
One of the finest liver performances I’ve ever seen.

ESPN doesn’t agree with us. They pulled his music video from the air.

"One of the finest liver performances I’ve ever seen."

I'd always heard that Hank Williams Jr. like his booze, but this is the first time that I've ever heard of an entertainer performing with his liver ...

... did they do duets, or did the liver have its own solo?

Well, of course Obama is the enemy. He wants to "fundamentally transform" the United States and loves the Black Panthers.
