Musician Hank Williams Jr.who doubles as the voice of ESPNs Monday Night Footballhas been pulled from tonights broadcast as a result of statements he made on Fox News early this morning.
On Fox & Friends, Williams said this of the so-called golf summit, which saw President Obama and VP Biden playing golf with House Speaker Boehner and Ohio Governor John Kasich:
Come on! Come on! It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu! adding Theyre the enemy! Obama! And Biden! Are you kiddin me, the Three Stooges!

Are you ready for some unemployment?
Hank acted stupidly.
Fires Rush Limbaugh for being right about the play of Donnan McNabb.
So much for free speech. I guess if he said the tea party was just of bunch of Nazis, he’d be ok
How many clebrities and news anchors who called Bush “Hitler” were fired??
Well, he’s wrong for saying Obama’s like Hitler. He’s more like Juan Peron.
I'm tired of the PC BS that's filled Monday Night football anyway. Too much other good stuff to watch anyhow.
I guess they were looking for some pretense, all along, to end his participation. I don’t get it but maybe someone else can make sense of it for me.
Why is it they NEVER pull the card of outrageous libs when they LIP OFF????Sounds like the chilling effect of more political correctness..
The truth will get you in trouble every time.
You been in Wisconsin way too long if you really believe it!
It has nothing to do with 1st Amendment rights! The government hasn’t anything to do with this, at least not ostensibly.
In other news ..... relatives of Adolf Hitler have also complained about the remark.
Well, excuse me professor!
Question - this says “tonight’s” Is that all it is? Are they clear? I NEVER thought I would find myself defending Hank Williams, Jr., but everybody’s right once in awhile. And HE SAID NOTHING WRONG!!!
“So much for free speech”
Not a free speech issue.
Just a matter of a private company and private organization making a decision.
NFL is skating on thin ice.
If the right is smart, it will destroy them.
They are nothing but an extension of the slave trade, with no guarantee contracts and extreme violence against blacks.
Somebody over there had better find a clue quick, because if Hank Jr doesn’t sing tonight, the NFL might as well start using a soccer ball, because NASCAR NFL fans WILL REVOLT.
