    ... . . Hank Williams Jr. {photo: Frederick Breedon IV}It's no secret that Hank Williams Jr. is no fan of our country's current administration--last year, he infamously compared the president to Hitler during an appearance on Fox & Friends. However, in a new interview with Rolling Stone, the always-outspoken country legend leaves no doubt as to just how much he dislikes President Obama. "The guy is the worst," Hank Jr. noted, point-blank. "Giveaway programs, hates America in the first place, forget about the flag." When asked to elaborate why exactly he thought the president hated America, Junior again minced no...

    Hank Williams Jr. to Obama: Pack your bags, take your teleprompter with you By Judy Kurtz - 07/09/12 06:56 PM ET Getting dropped from ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” telecast doesn’t seem like it’s done much to tone down Hanks Williams Jr. The controversial country crooner’s new album, “Old School, New Rules,” is out Tuesday, and judging by just a few lines from some of his new tunes, it sounds as if Williams is as feisty as ever. The musician, 63, was axed from “Monday Night Football” — for which he sang the classic opening song — after making some head-turning...

    I once had a conversation with a well-connected Democrat in Washington, D.C., with regard to lack of advertising in conservative publications. Without missing a beat, she said it was because "advertisers and corporate America are petrified of the far left. The executives at these companies fear that if they advertise in conservative outlets, the far left will harass them, boycott them, threaten them, and picket them forever until they give in to the thuggish behavior." I then pointed out that these same companies who for the most part shun conservative outlets are thrilled to advertise in far-left magazines like Mother...

    The Hank Williams Jr. song that has opened Monday Night Football for 20 years was not part of the opening of this week's Indianapolis-Tampa Bay game after Williams made controversial comments about President Barack Obama. Williams compared Obama to Adolf Hitler on Fox News Channel's "Fox and Friends" show Monday morning. ESPN, in a statement, said: "While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open...

    Hank Williams Jr., the singer whose various videos for the hit song "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Monday Night" has served as the intro to "Monday Night Football" for 23 seasons, compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler during a Monday morning appearance on "Fox and Friends." The statement led to ESPN pulling his popular intro segment, best known to fans for its "Are you ready for some football?" ending, for Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. During a discussion on the 2012 presidential race, Williams began discussing Obama's golf outing with Speaker...

    Hank Williams, Jr., the voice famous for asking millions of football fans whether they’re ready for some football, has been pulled from tonight’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News this morning. Williams, who sings the lead-in song to the game each week, criticized the president for his golf summit with House Speaker John Boehner this summer. “It would be like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli leader) Benjamin Netanyahu,” Williams told “Fox & Friends.” USA Today, among others, picked up the quote, speculating on whether the comparison would get Williams booted from the broadcast...

    I am writing to express my displeasure with the decision of ESPN to pull Hank Williams, Jr. from your Monday Night Football opening. Mister Williams did nothing more than express his opinion on a television show. The last time that I checked, we still have a United States Constitution (I served to defend it in the Marine Corps) and we still have the freedom to express our displeasure with our government and our elected officials. There never seemed to be an issue with that when President Bush was in office. Since you choose to ignore Mr. Williams right to free...

    Remember last April when Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., clumsily described economically struggling small towners as "cling"ing to guns, God, and bigotry? Hank Williams Jr., does. In a new radio spot airing in Montana, Williams says: "When Barack Obama said folks like you and me were bitter, and clinging to religion, I knew he just doesn't understand small town America," says Williams, adding: "We love our God, and we love our guns, 'specially handed down from our grandfathers. And we resent it when liberals like Obama question our way of life. Don't be bitter, vote McCain." One has to say: Montana?...

Williams Jr. has been performing at campaign events recently, singing the national anthem and then firing up the crowd with the new version of his song, "McCain-Palin Tradition." The new lyrics take on the "left-wing liberal media" and Democrats, with veiled references to Sen. Barack Obama. Palin will be in Colorado Springs at 8 a.m. Monday, followed by a noon stop in Loveland and a 6 p.m....

Hannity has had a great adventure of his own the past few years. His afternoon radio show on WABC (770 AM) is syndicated to more than 500 stations, and his 12 million-15 million weekly listeners put him behind only Rush Limbaugh. But numbers are only part of the story. Between the radio and his evening "Hannity and Colmes" on the Fox News Channel, the 44-year-old Hannity has risen above a crowded pack to become one...

Williams, 56, cut short a hunting trip after learning a warrant and an all-points-bulletin had been issued for him, E! Online reported. With his attorney in tow, he reported to Shelby County Sheriff's deputies and was booked on a charge of assault with intent to commit bodily harm. Holly Hornbeak, a 19-year-old Memphis hotel bar waitress, claimed Williams cursed at her, asked to kiss her, then lifted her up in a choke hold when she refused just...
