Hank Williams Jr., Obama & ESPN, and also the First Amendment

Gotta love the lyrics of the (re-)released song from Hank:

I'm gonna keep my big V8
Keep my friends the same
Keep the government outta my business
And y'all can keep the change

While I applaud him for encouraging Americans to get their daily servings of vegetables, there's a certain irony there with the people bringing up the First Amendment.

Also, is this the beginning of the end of the love affair of the Joe the Plumber/Tea Party/etc. and FOX News?

So Fox & Friends
Wanna put me down
Ask for my opinion
Then twist it all around
Supposed to be talkin' about my father's new CD
Well, two can play that gotcha game, just wait and see
Don't tread on me!

When did country singers start doing rap battles?

I LOVE THIS THREAD!

Podunk f*cking OWNS!

F*ck Hank Williams Junior. F*ck him right in his stupid face.

edit: to clarify, f*ck him not specifically for this incident, but rather for the crime against humanity that is his music career. F*ck Hank Jr., because his entire existence is an affront to all that is good and holy in this world.

Is this irony?

Which is worse, comparing someone you don't like to Hitler, or using profanity to wish sexual assault on someone you don't like? I'd imagine this was said a bit "tongue in cheek", but it still seems a bit odd.

I'm no HWJ fan, and what he said was moronic.

Saying "f*ck him in his stupid f*cking face" is not wishing sexual assault on someone. You really need to go learn the power of the word f*ck.

Why must our beautiful first amendment be sullied when idiots speak, and then wonder why people get mad?

You can say whatever you want. Other people have the right to mock, decry, ostracise you when you talk as a fool.

When we add the tolerance to f*ckwit clause via constitutional amendment, we can talk.

Quit trying to stomp all over his first amendment rights, will ya?

If Fox and Friends think you were over the line when describing Obama...

It is worth pointing out that Obama is now killing people he doesn't like, even American citizens, by signing death warrants.

Once that line has been crossed, it's just a matter of scale.

What's even funnier is that, according to the Daily Show, that same blonde woman was saying only 90 minutes before about Rosie O'Donnell, "Who cares what these celebrities think about politics?" And then they get those yokel to come on and talk about politics....

Bingo. I really wish all news networks would quit asking "celebrities" what they think.

Wait, what? I posted about this ten posts before QS. Obirano, you have forsaken your solemn duty to call QS a filthy, dirty skimmer.

QuintinStone: skimmer is you.

I can't find a funny picture to illustrate an eyeroll, so I will just type /eyeroll.

I rolled my eyes when I read this.

Once you're killing your own citizens without a trial, SallyNasty, it's no longer a difference of type, just of magnitude.

Death warrants have always been held as probably the single preeminent sign of an evil government.

Buddy, I don't object to your critical eye on matter - in fact I applaud your consistency. The only reason I take issue with that line of thought is that, in this case, this is not a man who was vilified by the government with an agenda of silencing him. This was a man who left the country of his birth in order to join a movement whose express aim was to bring destruction to America. My proof for my statement is not the American media, or government decree - but was his own admission, given to us through video releases and propaganda, which he used to recruit others to his cause. He was not a resident in a friendly land, but in a foreign country in an area not under friendly control. Arresting and trying him wasn't an option. At what point does someone become enough of a clear and present danger to warrant lethal force?

Respectfully(and I do mean that, regardless of my last post's snark), I just don't see the connection between your objection and the reality of the situation. It is not as though Obama sent a hit squad to pick up Glenn Beck and tortured him to death "for the good of us all."

You really want to get back into that discussion, Malor? Really? There's a thread for that, remember.

You mean, there was a thread for that.

Since that is closed, apparently this is the thread where Malor makes a case that Obama really is just like Hitler.

That was the best "off topic" close of a thread evar: someone posted their response to another thread to that one, and I guess because there was such an overlap of the people in both of the threads and we all just hit the "X new" link and don't pay attention to the title of the thread, a whole discussion migrated (don't look at me--someone else already made that pun) over.

I wonder what Certis thought when he saw that: if he knew how it happened, or he was just like "really guys--how did you manage this one?"

I really hope this doesn't become a thing every time "Obama" is mentioned. Axes are best ground in the backyard while listening to CCR. FACT.

Anyways, not seeing much more juice in this thread.
