Hank Williams Jr - Hank Williams Jr: 'Muslim' Obama Hates America, And Farming

Hank Williams Jr has launched into an incredible tirade against U.S President Barack Obama reports Rolling Stone. "We've got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him," claimed the 63-year old country singer-songwriter at the Iowa State Fair.
The audience were reportedly delighted with the singer's comments, and it's not the first time he's expressed such a stance on his President. Talking to Rolling Stone in July, Williams Jr. stated that Obama "hates America in the first place, forget about the flag." His comments, controversial as they are, have not been without their consequence; after comparing the 44th President of The United States to Hitler, Williams Jr. lost his cushy job (of sorts) at Espn. "I have always respected the office of the president," backtracked the singer saying his comments were merely an "extreme analogy," but his attempt at contrition didn't suffice in regaining his job.
Obama has been a frequent target for musicians of late. Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine has recently accused Obama of plotting the downfall of the United States. "My president is trying to pass a gun ban, so he's staging all of these murders," said Mustaine, suggesting that Obama had "staged" this month's shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin. "Like the Fast and Furious thing down at the border, and Aurora, Colorado, all the people that were killed there and now the beautiful people at the Sikh temple . I don't know where I'm gonna live if America keeps going the way it's going because it looks like it's turning into Nazi America."
