Move over Ted Nugent – a new right-wing musician is giving you a run for your crazy

3 posts / 0 new

During a performance at the Iowa State Fair, country music artist Hank Williams, Jr. went unhinged and grabbed the mic to say, “We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!”

Now wait a second – President Obama doesn’t hate farming. He also doesn’t hate the military – or the United States. And – by the way – he’s not a Muslim. On the bright side Hank, you already lost your job at ESPN after comparing President Obama to Hitler – so at least you don’t have a job to lose after this outrageously ignorant comment.

"Are you ready for some common sense?" Apparently not Junior.

NFL football likes radical rednecks, Rush and Hank Jr. Boycott the NFL, read a book instead.

Ted Nugent... one chicken hawk, warmongering, cowardly draft dodger endorsing another chicken hawk, warmongering, cowardly draft dodger. Nothing new here...

With so many legitmate criticisms which could and should be levied against Obama... it's absurd that the right feels the need to invent criticisms out of whole cloth. Since most of the legitmate criticisms arise from Obama continuing the same devastating policies of his predecessors... such selective amnesia is understandable...

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
