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

Posted on 10/03/2011 11:43:05 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

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.”

Watch Williams’ interview with Fox and Friends below:

Liberals say Bush was like Hitler and now they say Obama is like Bush therefore Obama is like Hitler.

"If more americans educated them selves on Mussolini"

Please help educate them! Pass on the links, educate yourself and others on fascist economics. Once someone even begins to explore fascist economics the matches and parallels with Obamanomics jump off the page. The moves toward Fascism that the Progressives have made (even back to FDR) become apparent and how today's policies take us further toward fascism (by design or not) will, I warn you, fear for the survival of Liberty.

Hank Williams Jr. Likens Obama To Hitler In Uncomfortable Fox and Friends Interview

Um, NO! The title is extremely misleading. Hank Jr. used an analogy. He DID NOT intimate that Obozo is Hitler-esq.

That is hilarious! It also reminds me of the first event in which Obama really looked bad to the rest of the world. It was the “line crossing” event for me. The whole fiasco was, on several levels.

Interestingly enough, Hank did not state Obozo is like Hitler. He, instead, used an analogy. One that is apropoe.

Il Duce... Hitler's embarrassment.

But he DID make the trains run on time!!

I think Il Duce began his political career as a socialist. He became a rabid fascist later.

Here's another rhyme....but not for the nursery!

Hitler has only got one b*ll;
Goering has two but very small;
Himmler has something similar;
But poor old Goebbels has no b*lls at all.

Sung to the tune "Colonel Bogey"

Saw the interview this am. Hank seemed out of it. The Fox Friends were uncomfortable. Gretchen made note that his opinion were not hers. Poor Hank doesn’t realize that it is not ok to call Obama a Hitler like it was to constantly call Bush Hitler. One would think that Hank singing for MNF days are over.

That's bombastic but he's not really comparing 0bama to Hitler. The comparison is about the meeting of two people who have diametrically opposed views. Is that too subtle a distinction for 21st century cave dwellers?

Sometimes, yet. It is the prudent man that knows when to fight and when to run. The smart Jews left Germany in the early 1930’s. The dumb ones tried to change it from within. Sorry to violate Godwin’s law, but it is such an easy example and proof that the high path is not always to attempt change.

Hank Williams said NO SUCH THING

He looked like he was nervous and awkward... but I watched it

He was commenting on the stupidity of Boehner going Golfing with Obama. He said it was stupid and likened it to two opposing teams meeting - and gave a dumb camparison to hitler meeting with churchill

Stupid- but he never said “Obama is hitler” just like he never said “Boehner is Churchill”

Who in the hell are you to say when it’s a good time to call Obama what he is. There’s never a bad time to call this usurper exactly what he is. He is not legally the president of anything. He is the de facto ruler of an insurrection.

People like you should be made to register with the state lime sex offenders.

I spent time with Hank on his bus two years ago and we had the same discussion. He and I think Obama is the enemy of our way of life and religion. We both support Sarah Palin. Hank is for real and his life has had some ups and downs that gives him some insight others may not have. Hank makes pantywaist liberals and the lightweight TV hosts cringe.

If the NFL or ABC/ESPN cancels Hank’s contract for MNF, then to hell with them, I say. He can do some other type of football promo for FOX, or maybe, just maybe, people will realize just how liberal the powers that be at ABC really are, and demand his return.

He didn’t compare Barry to Hitler. He was talking about optics. FWIW, I thought his analogy was spot on, and that Carlson, who rails against PC, oughta practice what she preaches.

Psst... Mussolini never made the trains run on time. Italian trains never have and never will run on time. He just made it so you couldn’t point OUT that the trains were late.

He was, from the little *I* know, a populist rabble rouser, probably in the mode of Huey Long or other great demagogues.

I didn’t say the analogy was not apt. I just said I would have used different terms and that I thought a lightweight morning “smiles” show was not the best forum to discuss it.

Hank Williams can say whatever he wants to say. He certainly does not need you to defend him.

Before you fly off the handle next time, perhaps you should read the forum posts more carefully. It might stop you from making such an intemperate post next time.

Reductio ad Hitlerum, a logical fallacy in which one suggests that any similarity to the German dictator must lead to genocide. To put it in language Hank could understand, comparing your political opponents to Hitler makes you sound like a dumbass.
