FromImpeachOnamaCampaign:Hank Williams Jr., the voice famous for asking millions of viewers if they’re ready for some football, has been pulled from Monday’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News this morning…
This afternoon, ESPN released a statement to the affirmative:
“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.”
All because of what he said on FOX:
Williams released a statement through his publicist, saying:
"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."
"Every time the media brings up the tea party it's painted as racist and extremists -- but there's never a backlash -- no outrage to those comparisons," Williams' statement continued.
"Working-class people are hurting -- and it doesn't seem like anybody cares. When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job -- it makes a whole lot of us angry. Something has to change. The policies have to change."
fOX EMPLOYEES HAVE BEEN GIVEN THEIR ORDERS BY ROGER AILES TO MOVE OVER MORE TO THE LEFT! THAT WAS THE LAST BASTION OF TRUTH AND NOW IT'S GONE. ALL THAT IS LEFT IS RADIO AND THE INTERNET, UNTIL NEXT MONTH WHEN THE FCC OREDERS THE INTERNET TO USE THE FAIRNESS DOCTRINE! YEP, THAT'S CORRECT, NOW THE INTERNET WILL BE HANDING DOWN PROPAGANDA INSTEAD OF THE TRUTH! HUSSAIN IS COMPLETING HIS COMPLETE TAKE OVER OF THE COMMUNICATIONS IN THIS COUNTRY. OH, HOW VERY HUGO CHAVEZ, MR. HUSSAIN!!!! NOW HE IS CLOSER TO A DICTATORSHIP THAN EVER!
oop, sorry for caps, my finger hit the caps button and I didn't see it! To late to erase and re write all over again!
What amazes me is that for most of Bush's 2 terms, main street media had people referencing Bush as Hitler, calling for his death and so much more and not one person was fired. Now one person comments and this guy gets fired. Give me a break. I think Hank Williams was trying to remark on the same things we have been saying... there is definitely a comparison between Hitler and Obummer, unfortunately, that's not Hank's field and why should he be fired and persecuted when people like Morgan Freeman, Rosie O'Donell, Joy Behar, Whoopi Goldberg, Michael Moore and many others, oh and good ole Roseanne Barr who actually called for the beheading of the rich. We've got our hands full folks, if we are going to turn America right side up again.
Well said Marianne...
We're gonna have our hands full for a very, very long time...
