Somebody owes the Dixie Chicks a big apology

What is it about wingnut country music stars that makes them such asshats? You know, like the flaming idiot Hank Williams, Jr.:
Country legend Hank Williams Jr. played to a crowd of nearly 8,500 at the Iowa State Fair Grandstand Friday night.

Following the song “We Don’t Apologize For America” a chant of “USA, USA” broke out amongst the crowd. Williams smiled, telling the crowd that he was their mouth piece and adding:

“We’ve got a Muslim president who hates farming, hates the military, hates the US and we hate him!”

The cheers that followed were loud and enthusiastic.
These would all be the same asshats that were burning Dixie Chick CDs for the cardinal sin of mentioning they were embarrassed that George Bush was living in their home state of Texas. And of course, as Steve M. points out, this isn't even the worst or most stupid remark good ole Honty Tonk Hank Jr. has ever made. But Hank's proud gun-clinging, real 'Murkin fans, are just cheering this crap because they're the only true patriots in the USA.

And by the way, they ain't the racists here. Hell, they got a black friend to prove it. The "real" racist is Joe Biden for saying "y'all" and "chains" in the same sentence. And of course, Hank just speaking the truth. Nothing hateful about it. The real hater is President Obama for making a dog joke. Now that be some real politics of "division and anger and hate."

Swear to the gods, I really try not to broadbrush demographic groups, but if these knuckledraggers could be any bigger morons, I don't want to live to see how. Just send the fucking meteor already.
