Appearing at the Stockyards Music Festival in Forth Worth, Texas on Sunday night, 62-year-old country music singer Hank Williams Jr. told the Texas crowd that President Barack Obama is secretly a “Muslim” who “hates cowboys” and other various southern past times like farming and fishing.
That’s not all he said, but those are the highlights, according to a report in The Dallas Morning News. The former ESPN “Monday Night Football” crooner’s full quote was: “We’ve got a Muslim for a President who hates cowboys, hates cowgirls, hates fishing, hates farming, loves gays, and we hate him!” Williams also mocked “queer guitar pickers” and told liberal politicians to “move to Mexico.”
Williams also delivered a shorter version of his most recent comments during an August appearance in Iowa, telling an audience that Obama is “a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the U.S. and we hate him!”
President Obama is a Christian and has never made any comments in public to suggest that he hates cowboys, cowgirls, fishing, farming or the military. However, Obama did say in May that he’s come to believe LGBT people deserve the same rights as other Americans, including the right to marry whoever they want.
