View Full Version : ESPN Pulls Hank Williams Jr. After He Compares Obama to Hitler

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."

There is an ultrasensitivity on the part of media elites in regards to criticism of BHO. Bush was compared to Hitler & no one batted an eye. Any White person opposed to BHO is assumed to be racist.

For those unfamiliar with US media, ESPN is 80% owned, and controlled, by the Walt Disney Co., which owns ABC which airs "The View", a program who's hostesses regularly go on rants about Obama opponents & demonized Bush in much harsher language then that used by Williams.

This is just preposterous. He didn't really compare "Fearless Leader" with Hitler at all. Any imagined transgression of reverence for the Anointed or Chosen is now an immediate career death sentence in this country. Another outrageous example is the NY Yankees banning Ronan Tynan from singing "God Bless America" at the stadium because someone heard him make an innocuous joke about Jewish women (gasp) in the privacy of his own apartment building.
