Hank Williams Jr is, perhaps second only to Ted Nugent, the rocker most likely to drive the Left up the wall. And in his new album, Williams does precisely that, opening it with a song called "Takin' Back the Country" - a defiant musical broadside against the Obama administration, the media, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Bing and a whole host of other opponents to what Williams considers to be his own homespun set of conservative values. Politico explains:
Country singer Hank Williams Jr. has a message for President Obama on his new album: “Barack, pack your bags, head to Chicago, take your teleprompter with you so you'll know where to go.”
Williams calls out Obama on a track entitled “Taking Back the Country” on the album “Old School, New Rules” set for release Tuesday. In the same song, Williams makes a reference to the time when he compared the president to Hitler last year.[...]
“I’ll go find a network that will treat me right,” Williams sings in response to the incident.
Left mysteriously unmentioned in the Politico description is the cheeky line that follows Williams' reference to Fox - "You can take the change and stick it out of sight." You can hear Williams' full-throated defiance given voice below:
