Hank Williams Jr Speaks His Mind

I am not a big country music fan, but I definitely am not a fan of the MSM and the spin they put on news. I experienced this as a cop, Sgt. and finally a Lt. when the press took my words and spun them all to hell, or used the statistics I provided in outright misrepresentations. And invariably when I confronted the reporter, they'd blame their editor.

So when Hank Williams Jr. gets slapped around by ESPN, it strikes a resonant chord in me.

So I am posting Hank's website where you can get a free download of his newest song, "Keep The Change" for a limited time. Basically Hanks asserts his right to speak his mind about his love for his country. Hanks has had a storied past, yes - I know - but so have I.

BTW - I stopped listening to network news over twenty years ago and gave up on Fox News about two years ago. They all stink - they lie to make the news more sensational - it's all about making a profit from their advertising and the truth be damned.

I back Hank Williams Jr. This is one more example which shows the Left and MSM don't believe in free speech for all people. They suck.

I get my news from a select few quality web sites, and I am days and weeks ahead of the MFM's pablum fountain.

Blog news is my favorite.

If a sitting President calls you a racist, it's free speech. If you question his motives ... you are that racist.

You're right, the spin is everywhere. I only trust fellow bloggers and even then I'll doublecheck for myself.

To paraphrase Mark Twain, "There are lies, damned lies and news broadcasts."

God Bless Hank and people like him who have the Guts to say what they feel.

Teresa - I don't beleive this is a 1st Amendment issue simply because the government is not involved. ESPN does not really have to explain why it did what it did - Hank Williams Jr. is a big boy and can take care of himself. He is more than able to handle the consequences of his actions. But ESPN should also be prepared to wear asbestos undies for what they did. Piss on 'em. If they don't like what Hank said then they really won't like what we say and do.

Nickie - same here. Say, email me your news sources, I wanna see if we share them.

sig94 said...

Opus - it's the only way to go.

Odie - Obugger is trying to drag the black folk back onto the plantation.

Subvet - I am thinking of a new post where in the comments section you write the news sites that you trust. Good idea?

sig94 said...

Malcontent - we all need to make clear to the powers that be what we think of all the crap they are throwing our way.

Nickie Goomba said...

That's a great idea. Ask for all to share their favorite news sources. I'd love to know. Except for Odie, of course.

Subvet said...

Sig94, works for me!

Nickie - does Odie scare you too? I sometimes have dreams...

Teresa said...

I'm sorry but I have just couldn't resist.

sig94 and Nickie - wet dreams? or nightmares?

Teresa - that's for me to know ;)
