Hank Williams Jr. Says Obama Is A Muslim Who 'Loves Gays'

HWJCountry fried singer Hank Williams Jr's anti-gay, anti-Obama message should be included on his next greatest hits album.

You'll recall that Williams compared our president to Adolf Hitler during a Fox News appearance last October. Well, he let loose even more vitriol earlier this month by describing Obama as a Muslim who "hates the U.S.," a remark that formed the foundation for his most recent incendiary comments.

"We’ve got a Muslim for a President who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!," Williams said at a concert Sunday.

The Dallas Morning News has more details on Williams' hateful appearance:

The 63-year-old singer began his anti-gay commentary a few songs earlier, mocking “queer guitar pickers” in the middle of “All My Rowdy Friends Have Settled Down” before moving on to his next target: Liberal politicians, who he told to “move to Mexico” at the end of “We Don’t Apologize For America.”

Well at least we know what tracks to play next time we want to end a party, right?

In their report on that matter, the DMN says Williams' "mix of redneck politics and music has long been a big part of his appeal to some fans" but wished that his ecletic, varied musical style -- his bold fusion of Southern rock, folk, blues and piano boogie -- could be heard in his politicking.

"It’s just too bad his open-minded approach to music doesn’t carry over to the rest of his brain," wrote reporter Thor Christensen. He also says Williams' homophobic, xenophobic remarks were met with a "less-than-unanimous cheer".

  4. Hanks, darling, what have you been smoking? Hope it's not addictive.

  5. I love the way Mr. Williams refers to the President as "a muslim" - as if this by itself is some kind of insult. I mean aren't there American Muslims who are in favor of traditional values and love country music? I would bet that there are plenty. Does he not want these fellow Americans in his fan base? I'm sure he's happy to accept the money they spend on his music and concerts.

  7. HW Jr.'s expiration date was about 30 years ago. This is one hate-filled ignorant redneck who never made it into the 21st century.

  8. Bush's son was called "Shrub." What shall we call Hank Williams' son? "Twig?"

  9. "I love the way Mr. Williams refers to the President as 'a muslim' - as if this by itself is some kind of insult."

    To some on the Religious Right it is. Their islamophobia sometimes tops their homophobia! They at least usually grant the LGBT community some rights and allow us to exist in the US (although some have expressed the view that we should be deported). Some members of the Religious Right claim that religious freedom does NOT apply to Islam. Some want to demosque the US and deport all Muslims. You would not believe the conspiracy theories some have produced. For example, look up Michele Bachmann. (One of her other theories is that Obama is 'extremely wealthy', so vote for Romney.)

  10. I'd say he should be shunned and pilloried as bad as the Dixie Chicks were for saying far less inflammatory stuff, but his career has been dead for years and was never really on the level as the Dixie Chicks.

  11. Odd, isn't it, that with the beard HWJr looks a bit like a Muslim himself.

  12. Sorry he doesn't like games, but I used to JO to a really hot shirtless pic of him when I was a kid. I should tell him that on twitter.

  13. Haha gays, not games

  14. He fell off of a cliff and hit his head, ending up in a coma for a long time. I wonder if this has affected his judgment.

  15. Yes President Obama loves gays and straights too, just like another great man, God who said love one another. President Obama is like another great President Abraham Lincoln who freed the black salves who were oppressed and kept down and not even allowed to marry a white woman until the 1960's in America. Because President Obama is black he knows how oppressive people cause harm to minorities by not giving them their equal and Civil Rights and that is why he is a great man like Lincoln, Obama is freeing the gays (LGBT people) by helping to give them the same equal and Civil Rights and freedom like President Lincoln helped free the slaves. God bless Obama, God bless the gays and God bless America, land of the free.

  16. It's a damn shame. I do like his (earlier) music. He is a talented person, but damn if his head ain't all wired wrong!!

    I can't in good conscience listen to his music anymore.

    Hopefully Hank3 (Hank Williams III), who looks quite like his grandfather, is much more progressive, as his music tends to lean more toward punk and metal, even though he still does some country stuff.

  17. Just sure this is news anymore

    Posted by: ALan | Sep 4, 2012 4:01:45 PM

  18. his implication is that we should hate gays instead.

    and xians cheer.

    but don't call them hateful. how dare you.

  19. This man makes me doubt the very concept of genetics. It's also difficult to imagine he ever really spent much time around the people he shamelessly name-drops in his only well-remembered song.

    Hey, Hank--your rowdy friends didn't settle down. They got tired of your stupid ass.

  20. I heard he was a swallower.

    Hank, WE NEED YOU ON Monday Night Football!

  22. Hank Williams Jr. says that Obama is a Muslim who loves gays. He sure doesn't know much about Muslims. One of the hallmarks of Islam is its love of gays. LOL LOL LOL

  23. Gosh, I thought he shriveled up and died of some liquor-related disease. Oh wait, he just looks like he's dead. So if Obama is a Muslim, does good ole boy Hank think he's a Christian? With all that hate in him? Nope...not by a country mile. Have fun in Hell, Hank. Satan loves hypocrites like you...you'll fit right in.

  24. Too bad this mentally challenged celebrity doesn't realize he is what he is because of the vison of people like President Obama. What a hill jack!!!
