HANK WILLIAMS JR.: ‘WE’VE GOT A MUSLIM PRESIDENT WHO HATES FARMING, HATES THE MILITARY, HATES THE U.S. AND WE HATE HIM!’
August 19, 2012
Nearly a year after country music singer Hank Williams Jr. courted controversy by comparing President Barack Obama to Hitler, he’s unleashed more fiery criticism, this time calling the president an anti-American Muslim.
Williams’ comment came near the end of a concert Friday night at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand, the Des Moines Register reported.
“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!” Williams said, according to the newspaper.
The comments reportedly went over well with the crowd, which responded with “loud and enthusiastic” cheers.
Williams appeared on “Fox & Friends” in October 2011 and said House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Obama playing golf together was “like Hitler playing golf with [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu.”
