Hank Williams Jr. on Obama: "Muslim President Who Hates U.S. and We Hate Him"

Over the weekend, Hank Williams Jr. exercised his constitutional right to speak out of his ass, making some outlandish statements about President Barack Obama.

According to the Huffington Post, the 63-year-old country boy was nearing the end of a performance at the Iowa State Fair on Friday night when the set turned political and inflammatory.

"We've got a Muslim president who hates farming," Williams misinformed the crowd. "[He] hates the military, hates the U.S., and we hate him!"

Reports say that Hanky's subtle, anti-Islamic sentiment and totally false accusations of President Obama's role as an agricultural Nazi were well received. Rather than being pelted with Old Milwaukee cans, the singer was applauded for his boldly ignorant declaration.

And speaking of Nazis and ignorance, this isn't the first time Williams shits on the presidency.

In October 2011, Williams appeared on Fox and Friends and likened him to Adolf Hitler.

Williams said that Obama's golf outing with Republican House Speaker John Boehner was "like Hitler playing golf with (Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin) Netanyahu."

The unprompted quip cost Williams his longtime meal ticket, kicking off Monday Night Football with a pre-taped rework of "All My Rowdy Friends Are Here on Monday Night."
