ESPN Pulls Hank Williams for Exercising Free Speech that Opposes Obama
Hank Williams Jr., the voice famous for asking millions of viewers if they’re ready for some football, has been [was] pulled from Monday’s broadcast of “Monday Night Football” over a comment he made on Fox News ...
... ESPN released a statement to the affirmative:
I guess, in all reality, ESPN had no choice but to do what they did... I mean, really... can you IMAGINE comparing Obimbo to Hitler?! Who woulda' thought?! I’M WITH YOU, HANK! I hope Attack Watch (the joke of the Internet) has a bead on my site, ‘cause Hank was just tellin’ it like it is! And, by the way, Hitler’s not too happy with Attack Watch, either.“While Hank Williams, Jr. is not an ESPN employee, we recognize that he is closely linked to our company through the open to Monday Night Football. We are extremely disappointed with his comments, and as a result we have decided to pull the open from tonight’s telecast.”
The next one is for all the bleeding hearts out there. It's from just one of the many Web sites that are getting their panties all in a wad about the killing of al-Awlaki.
America Assassinates its Own People and We Don’t Care
What if al-Awlaki was engaged in his terrorist activities in the United States? Unless he was engaged in the act of murder would we have just blown up his house?
Those accused of treason are still required to be put on trial and either convicted or found non-guilty. That is what should have happened to al-Awlaki if we were able to capture him. We may never have captured him, but we sometimes don’t even capture our own murderers. We even re-elect some to political office. The Constitution places some strict limits on the government before it can declare someone to be a traitor:
“No Person shall be convicted of Treason unless on the Testimony of two Witnesses to the same overt Act, or on Confession in open Court.”
This idea that there are exceptions in the Constitution to what limits are placed on our Federal government is a dangerous, slippery slope.
Where do the assassinations stop? What defines a legal right to murder a U.S. citizen? Who defines that? It seems right now the Obama administration has defined it. But what happens when our country accepts this assassination as one of those Constitutional “exceptions” we must act upon in certain situations? We become no better than the Liberals who are trying to destroy our Constitution. What happens when the definition of legal assassinations becomes more broad?
For a government that couldn’t outlaw alcohol without a Constitutional Amendment, we sure do allow it to do some pretty heinous things all in the name of “national security.” What happens when political opponents are targeted in the name of “national security” and assassinated because they are homegrown terrorists? What if TEA Partiers are labelled as enemy combatants against the United States?
The dangerous precedent this assassination has created is very real.
My attitude? Sorry, Bud, but Mr. Alphabet just gave his life for ‘The Cause.’
All of these “pretty heinous things all in the name of ‘national security’” weren’t brought on by our government. The cowards that hide behind children and women’s skirts (or whatever the hell they wear,) don’t wear a uniform and who call themselves ‘terrorists’ were the scumbags who started all of this. Whether or not you like it, the rules of engagement have changed.
If he had been in New York City (thank you, he wasn’t) we would’ve sent in a SWAT team and ‘probably’ would’ve taken him alive and then we’d have spent about as much as the national debt guaranteeing him his ‘rights.’ It may not be the way the Constitution looks at it, but the way I look at it is, Mr. Alphabet gave up his ‘rights’ as a U.S. citizen when he ran, tried to hide on foreign soil, continued to do his thing with his terrorists buddies and then got himself blown up. HE MADE THAT LIFE CHOICE (thank you, FOR THAT!)
A drone that’s flown by a guy in Las Vegas that drops a guided bomb, or boots on the ground that put a 7.62mm or .50 cal. round through the middle of his beady, little horn-rim glasses -- it makes no difference to me. Mr. Alphabet is dead and I’ve got the ‘right’ to take solice in knowing that there’s one less coward walking the face of this earth.
So, if America is assassinating its own people and we don’t care -- you’re right, I DON’T CARE about the maggots that are in America. Just because they have a U.S. birth certificate (unlike one certain individual's that's STILL in question,) when they cross the line into terrorism, they're NOT our own people as far as I'm concerned.
Hope you’re enjoying your 72 Virgins, al-Awlaki. But, I kinda #@?#ing doubt it.
