No Hank, no Monday Night Football,
ESPN, owned by far left leaning Disney struck back at Hank Williams today, taking his trademark, “Are you ready for some football?” song off fo the opening of Monday night football.
Why? Williams dared to insult Disney darling Obama.
From the Daily Caller:
The name Hank Williams, Jr. isn’t usual associated with political insight and expert analysis of current events. But the “Are you ready for some football?” singer has some strong political views, and he shared them on “Fox & Friends” Monday morning. Among other things, he compared the president to Adolph Hitler.
Williams said Monday morning that a pivotal moment for him was the so-called golf summit in June between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner.
“You remember the golf game they had, ladies and gentlemen? Remember the golf game? That was one of the biggest political mistakes ever,” Williams said. “That turned a lot of people off. It just didn’t go over.”
“Come on, come on,” the country performer continued. “It would be like Hitler playing golf with Netanyahu, OK? Not hardly. In the country this shape it’s in, the shape this country is in, I mean, no, I don’t think so.”
Host Brian Kilmeade said he didn’t understand that analogy, but Williams insisted that others would.
“Well, I’m glad you don’t, brother, because a lot of people do,” he said. “They’re the enemy” – meaning Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.
Earlier this year, ESPN reprimanded Golf commentator Paul Azinger for an anti-Obama tweet.
From USA Today in August:
UPDATE: ESPN is coming down on Paul Azinger for mocking President Obama on Twitter. The golf analyst tweeted Thursday the commander in chief plays more golf than he does -- and that Azinger has created more jobs this month than Obama has.
Of course ESPN has no problem when far left leaning Kenny Mayne tweeted this jewel:
Of course since it is hate directed towards a conservative, nothing happened to Mayne.
As much as I love sports, I have just about had it with ESPN. Until Hank Williams is brought back to sing the intro to MNF, I won’t watch it and I encourage everyone else to turn off MNF.
Hank Williams, Jr. is rumored to be thinking about running for the US Senate in Tennessee. As a Tennessean, all I can say is, “Run Hank Run!”
Not that I have any problem with Hank's statement, I don't watch ESPN.
I'm watching my Detroit Tigers play those "Damn Yankees" anyway.
AGAIN, they're convinced that freedom of speech is solely the freedom of the progressive liberals. Like.........they soooooooooo can think better than everybody else.............DUH, YA KNOW?!@@#$%^&&**(())_+_+"?"
how else would I know about the danger those overcrowded islanders were in, .... I mean, the WHOLE ISLAND is in danger of tipping over!
THEY'VE DEEMED CLUELESS IDIOTS ENTERTAINING!
Bob, I am FOR freedom of speech. I also believe that John Boehner was attempting to dance with the devil and betrayed us by allowing Obama to get his hands on more tax dollars to waste. Maybe Hank Williams Jr. is as ticked off about the financial waste by irresponsible public servants like I am. Disney is in business, and is therefore dependant upon their customers.
This is a final straw with me, Disney! You fire somebody because you disagree with his views on financial responsibility?
Am I also out of line, Bob? R U saying that I just gotta get my mind right? (Ever see the movie Hud?) I may be wrong, but I have the right to voice my thoughts and feelings, as does HWjr. Businesses serve the public, as does government. Why is it backwards these days? Customer service and respect for your customers and constituents is passe these days.
Ever stew while you are forced to listen to endless recordings which direct you to press 1 fer, 2 fer, 3 fer, 4 fer, ad nauseum? And when you finally get a real person to talk to they're from a 3rd world country and you cannot understand what they are saying......don't DARE mention that there are millions of Americans who would love to be manning those lines..........you'll be on hold for hours, until they're tired of the game and disconnect you so you can call back and start the game from scratch..........I've spent DAYS trying to resolve unsubstantiated overcharges until I've FIRED businesses!
We MUST speak up, or we'll wind up on the trains to fema camps a la Europe, circa 1930's&40's. They'll have to scoop me up with shovels before I'll give up my rights!
AND JOHN BOEHNER BETRAYED ME BY ASSURING ME THAT THERE WAS NO AIR BETWEEN HIM AND THE TEA PARTY AND THEN CAVING IN TO THE "LITTLE 0" AFTER THEIR PRIVATE TETE A TETE AND CELEBRATORY GOLF GAME!
Bob, you obviously are a liberal, you do not understand what the word FREEDOM means do you.
you are definitly in the wrong place.
And it never will. Remember these are the same leftists scum who falsely accused Rush of saying something he never said to block him purchasing a NFL team! The leftist Liberal is nothing more than a intolerant, hypocritical bigot!
And if you want to do something about Kenny_Mayne, then do what I just did.
Tweet the jerk & attackwatch and call him on what he said.
For example my 'tweet' said .......
#attackwatch @Kenny_Mayne so it's ok to want to hurt someone because you disagree with them? Should we say hypocritical, or just bigots?
Something like 'that'.
