Hank Williams Jr. goes there: ‘We’ve got a Muslim for a president’
I guess that whole “empty chair” bit wasn’t quite so bad after all, in hindsight. OK, then…. Geez.
Hank Williams Jr., whose “Monday Night Football” theme song was pulled by ESPN last year after he compared President Barack Obama to Adolf Hitler, lashed out at the president during a Labor Day weekend concert.
“We’ve got a Muslim for a president who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!” Williams reportedly told the crowd at the Stockyards Music Festival in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sunday. Williams Jr. was the headliner.
Concertgoers “let out a loud but less-than-unanimous cheer,” Thor Christensen wrote in the Dallas Morning News.
According to Christensen’s review:
The 63-year-old singer began his anti-gay commentary a few songs earlier, mocking “queer guitar pickers” in the middle of “All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down” before moving on to his next target: Liberal politicians, who he told to “move to Mexico” at the end of “We Don’t Apologize For America.”
