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 of the House John Boehner. He said it was a political mistake, on par with “Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”

He then said:
“Well you may not know it but this man is a spy.
He’s a undercover agent for the FBI
And he’s been sent down here to infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan!”
.
I said “Would you believe this man has gone as far
As tearing Wallace stickers off the bumpers of cars
And he voted for George McGovern for President.”

“Well he’s a friend of them long haired, hippy-type, pinko fags!
I betchya he’s even got a commie flag
Tacked up on the wall inside of his garage.”

.
Further respondent sayeth not.

Hank shouldn’t be working for those light in the loafers fairies at ESPN anyway. He’s better off.

Actually he never compared Obama to Hitler. What he said was Boehner and Obama Golfing was like Hitler and Netanyahu golfing. In other words, you could not find two more diametrically opposed people to play golf. He was no more likening Obama to Hitler than he was calling Boehner Netanyahu, ( which wouldnt even make sense asBoehner on his best day couldn’t even polish Bibi’s shoes.)

Well, “Bibi” has your spittle to do that with, doesn’t he?

Stupid Gretchen Carlson and Stupid Stupid ESPN.Oh well two less things that I don’t watch that I will now avoid even more.

How do you not watch something even more thanyou’re already not watching it?
Expect repercussions.

Could sports be more racist?

It’s all gone downhill since they started letting the coloreds in.

It’s sickening. It was Gretchen or someone who made something out of that question. I knew the minute she emphasized it that he was out.

Bocephus is gay?

He went on the show to publicize some newly discovered music by his father that’s out now on TV but they had to delve into politics.

Maybe you could tell him to shut up and sing?

I think this is kinda sad.

Based on your sig line, I foresee a lifetime of “kinda sad”, bitter disppointment, and hearbreak ahead of you, due to your inability to distinguish your fantasies from reality.
You will then blame your hearbreak and wasted life on hippies and “commonists”.
