“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!” link
That was Hank Williams, Jr. in a performance at the Iowa State Fair Friday night. The Des Moines Register/Metromix, calls this lie and hatefulness “political commentary.”
Meanwhile, there’s a media sideshow concerning a couple of ordinary Iowa citizens being accused of “hurting Democracy” and rude behavior by DesMoines Register political reporter Kathy Obradovich because they called out a couple of questions like “Are you going to cut Medicare?” and “Stop the war on women” to Paul Ryan. They were hauled away by cops for this relatively minor infraction and everyone agreed that this was appropriate.
So, Hank and fans, just for the record, this President is not a Muslim (although what exactly would be wrong with that even if he was)? And no, this President does not hate farming (Why would anyone hate farming?) or the military. And no, everyone in the US does not hate him. In fact, most of us love this President having elected him by a huge margin, ten million votes or so.
We get that you hate him but he is standing up for you and your interests nonetheless. Just sayin’.
Everyone else, those of you who didn’t care so much for Hank’s style of “political commentary” at the Iowa State Fair, perhaps there is something you would like to say to the Iowa State Fair Board about this. If so, here’s how to contact them.
