After being pulled from the NFL‘sÂ Monday Night Football broadcast, Hank Williams Jr. issued the following statement on both Twitter and his website:
â€śSome of us have strong opinions and are often misunderstood. My analogy was extreme â€“ but it was to make a point. I was simply trying to explain how stupid it seemed to me – how ludicrous that pairing was.Â Theyâ€™re polar opposites and it made no sense.Â They donâ€™t see eye-to-eye and never will. I have always respected the office of the President.â€ť
â€śEvery time the media brings up the tea party itâ€™s painted as racist and extremists â€“ but thereâ€™s never a backlash â€“ noÂ outrage to those comparisonsâ€¦Â Working class people are hurting â€“ and it doesnâ€™t seem like anybody cares. When both sides are high-fiving it on the ninth hole when everybody else is without a job â€“ it makes a whole lot of us angry.Â Something has to change. The policies have to change.â€ť â€“ Hank Williams, Jr.
