Hank Williams, Jr.: Are You Ready For This Asshole?


I don't think very much of Hank Williams, Jr. I mean, he's recorded a couple of decent country tunes, he's the guy that's been singing the Monday Night Football theme for as long as I can remember. That's about it-- I didn't really have a strong opinion about him either way. I have to say that even in the midst of the latest news media controversy about Williams, I still really don't have a strong opinion about him. It's just that now, he sounds like a hypocritical asshole.

Williams has been under attack for the last few days after he called President Obama a Nazi on Fox and Friends:




Now, I'm about as upset with these remarks as I am by any made by an inarticulate, shit-kicking moron. This is a guy who is clearly not a supporter of Obama's presidency-- fair enough. But when douchebags like this and Ann Coulter throw the word "Nazi" around like it's their mother's name...it's hard to take them seriously. Hell, as a Jew that lived in Europe in the 1940s if Obama or the Wall Street protestors remind them of Nazi's, you know what they're gonna say? "Shut the fuck up."

Sure, anyone using the "Nazi" analogy is being hyperbolic (hey Hank, spell that!). But it's just so tired and totally inaccurate to compare anyone to a Nazi that hasn't committed mass murder by the millions. And as much as inbred hicks like Williams, or skanky, ignorant trash like Coulter like to speak in those terms...their use of this comparison mostly just speaks of their lack of originality and the shallow nature of their thinking. 

Of course, it took Williams a couple of days to get what he would consider an apology to come out right. His first attempt was clearly the work of a publicist:

"Some of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme - but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me - how ludicrous that pairing was....They're polar opposites and it made no sense. They don't see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President."
Definitely more articulate, and clearly half-hearted. And ineffective, because most people didn't really buy it. So then, the man himself released his own statement:

"I have always been very passionate about Politics and Sports and this time it got the Best or Worst of me. The thought of the Leaders of both Parties Jukin and High Fiven on a Golf course, while so many Families are Struggling to get by simply made me Boil over and make a Dumb statement and I am very Sorry if it Offended anyone. I would like to Thank all my supporters. This was Not written by some Publicist."

Now that's more like it-- sloppy, rambling, borderline illiterate...written like a true, dumb good-ol boy. I love "High Fiven"-- that's my favorite (or should I say "fayvoret").

He must have been furious when George W. Bush was constantly compared to a Nazi by the Liberals-- equally as stupid as calling Obama one. But you know that Williams must have been livid-- calling people traitors and shit for not respecting the President. It's typical, though, of assholes like this, and the teabaggers as well, to let fly on Obama without the least bit of respect for him OR his presidency...BUT DON'T TALK ABOUT THEIR PRESIDENT! And we'll see how they react when someone calls the next Republican president (2016) a "Nazi" or "Communist" or whatever stupid shit they'll come up with.

At the end of the day, it's ONLY Hank Williams, Jr. It's not like anyone respects this man for his intellect. Maybe he should keep his trap shut, unless there's a guitar playing along.

YOU SOUND LIKE THE ASSHOLE TO ME. OH AND ALSO AN IDIOT WHO DOESN'T HAVE A CLUE ABOUT TRUTH. I THINK YOU JUST BELIEVE ANYTHING YOUR WORTHLESS PERZ SAYS BECAUSE HE IS HALF BLACK. I HATE THIS PIECE OF CRAP BECAUSE HE IS BAD FOR FREEDOM AND RIGHTEOUSNESS NOT BECAUSE HE IS HALF BLACK WHICH IS WHAT ALL OF YOU ZEALOTS LIKE TO BANTER ON ABOUT. HERE IS A LITTLE SOMETHING FOR YOU TO READ UP ON DUMMY...

Who am I???

I was born in one country, raised in another.
My father was born in another country.
I was not his only child.
He fathered several children with numerous women.
I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me.
My mother died at an early age from cancer.
Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolizing my father not my mother.
Later in life, questions arose over my real name.
My birth records were sketchy.
No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.
I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it was widely accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and didn't follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.
I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult, disguising myself as someone who really cared about them.
That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life and embarked on a new career.
I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.
It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties accepting that my father abandoned me as a child.
I became active in local politics in my 30's then, with help behind the scenes.
I literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in my 40's.
They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.
I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no experience in leading a single organization.
Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though I were a magnet and they were small roofing tacks.
I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.
This bolstered my ego.
At first, my political campaign focused on my country's foreign policy...
I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every opportunity to bash my country.
But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the country's economy.
I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and every poor person would be fed and housed for free .
I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.
It was the free market, banks and corporations .
I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became envious of others who did well, the plan was clinched tight.
I called mine "A People's Campaign."
That sounded good to all people.
I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the traditional path of politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.
I knew that, if I merely offered the people 'hope', together we could change our country and the world..
So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of the downtrodden, poor, ignorant to include "persecuted minorities".
My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until after I became my nation's leader.
I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found out what I really believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those people I associated with. I'm glad they didn't.
Then I became the most powerful man in the world.
And then the world learned the truth.

Who am I?
