Former Voice of Monday Night Football Says He Hates Obama
Fans of football will remember that Hank Williams Jr. was the voice of ESPN’s “Monday Night Football” until he was fired for comparing President Obama to Hitler. So it should certainly come as no surprise that Hank Williams Jr. is now admitting what we knew all along, that he hates President Obama.
At a concert in Texas on Sunday, the hee-haw redneck said, ”We’ve got a Muslim for a President who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him.”
Funny enough, President Obama is not a Muslim, and all right wingers should know that considering how hard they railed against Obama for attending Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s church. But, for right wingers like Williams, Obama is whatever they need him to be in order to hate him.
Those who remember Williams’ firing from ESPN in 2011 will also remember his confusion as it relates to the Constitution.
“After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision,” Williams wrote. “By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE. It’s been a great run.”
Williams obviously didn’t understand that the First Amendment does not protect his right to make inflammatory comments, and still keep his job. But many on the right who proclaim to protect the Constitution have never read it, and don’t really understand it.
Hank Williams Jr., like many on the right, hates Obama. The only difference here is that most on the right usually conceal their hate in feigned patriotism. At least Williams is honest.
