Obama Is Hitler: Hank Williams Jr. Impersonates A Tea Party Sign On Fox & Friends

Hank Williams Jr. joined the morning crew of Fox & Friends and meandered off the rails. It even had the Ailes puppet crew freaking out, causing them to disavow his comments at the end of the segment.

Newshounds tipped me off on this this morning:

Hank Williams, Jr. appeared on Fox & Friends this morning and, undoubtedly knowing that Williams is a Republican, the Curvy Couch Crew decided to probe his thoughts about the 2012 presidential election. The ensuing trainwreck as Williams compared President Obama to Hitler and called Obama “The Enemy!” proved too much even for these three hosts. It probably guarantees this will be the last time anyone on Fox asks for Williams’ political opinion again. How bad was it? Bad enough that Gretchen Carlson made a point of disavowing his comments after the segment was over.

Williams was obviously in a hostile mood from the get go. He appeared in dark sunglasses and with his arms crossed as the interview opened. His bizarre answers that followed strongly suggested he was inebriated. That would be the best of the possibilities. Otherwise, what he said was just hostile, ungracious and offensive - even by Fox News standards. (H/T Aunty Em).

If Gretchen said that they disavowed his disgusting comments then you know it was way, way, way out there. And his remarks caused ESPN to pull him off of Monday Night Football tonight. I'm sure he'll say that his first amendment rights were just violated by ESPN because that's the standard tea party line of defense.

I go after Rep. John Boehner's obsession with golf, but I don't consider him Pinochet because he spends almost as much time on the putting green as he does in Congress. If Gretchen said that they disavowed his disgusting comments then you know it was way, way, way out there. And his remarks caused ESPN to pull him off of Monday Night Football tonight.

“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”

I'm sure he'll use the Dr. Schlessinger defense of saying his first amendment rights were just violated by ESPN

On the heels of a controversy surrounding her repeated use of the N-word on the air, Dr. Laura Schlessinger announced last night that her decades-long career on talk radio will be coming to an end this December.

"I made the decision not to do radio anymore," Schlessinger said on CNN's "Larry King Live." "I want to regain my first amendment rights. I want to be able to say what is on my mind, in my heart, what I think is helpful and useful without somebody getting angry."

Dr. Laura Quits: Was She Forced Out or Were Her First Amendment Rights Really in Jeopardy?

Just last week in a debate about racism on her radio program, the conservative host used a racial slur 11 times on the air.

That's the standard tea party line of defense for all their incendiary rhetoric.
