    Re: Hank Williams Jr., 1st Amendment Rights?

    Hank Williams Jr.'s rights were certainly NOT violated... a corporation made a legal albeit politically correct move - a move that lowered my opinion (further) of the producers of Monday Night Football. Others have mentioned the left-leaning double standard and that, unfortunately, comes with the vast majority of major network media. That was par for the course. I am most disappointed in Hank Williams Jr. for apologizing for a perfectly good analogy! As others have said, he did not appear to call Obama Hitler, but used the hypothetical Hitler/Netanyahu scenario to show what should be the difference between Obama's policies and expected Republican policies. Williams appeared to be as disgusted as I tend to be when Republicans cozy up to Democrats socially in the name of compromize as if there is some good to be had by compromizing in the destruction of the US economy. His analogy and the apparent reason of his remark seemed quite defendable in my mind... then he apologized. Hank, you're probably too popular to lose your huge country music fans... but you lost status in my eyes! You should have stood your ground, but maybe you needed the money... that's too bad!
    Obama lied... Ambassador Stevens died!

    What he said could possibly be considered seditious.

    I suppose that is possible, in the Bizzarro universe.

    What double standard? The Dixie Chicks made a disparaging remark against Bush and Clear Channel, the nation's leading radio broadcaster, banned them from their some 1,200 stations.

    I'd say a case can easily be made that declaring the president and vice president your enemy qualifies as sedition.

    Not by the definition of the word Sedition. He is not inciting rebellion.

    That's ironic because Dixie Chicks got in trouble because they weren't PC enough for country music fans.

    Sedition is not limited to rebelion. Inciting acts of violence or disturbances against the state equally qualifies. Sedition is not treason and I can see where declaring, "they're the enemy!" on national television can incite violence or public disturbances.

    We are back to the Bizzarro universe again. What you are doing is taking things too far. If you wanted to say "Hank Williams Jr is an asshole for his comments and an idiot", that is a reasonable attitude and defensible from the facts. You instead pulled a Beck/Limbaugh strategy of starting from a reasonable point, then stretching it way too far.

    Actually I believe he is simply advocating for retroactively charging all the people that compared Bush to Hitler with sedition and have them arrested for the good of the nation.

    OK...you may be right...
