    Where'd his freedom of speech go?

    Hank Williams Jr. pulled from ESPN after comparing Obama to Hitler | Inside TV | EW.com

    Apparently the same place the Dixie Chicks' did.

    He is as free as anyone, event he Dixie Chicks, to speak. But the public is just as free not to patronize his wares.

    Yeah, his freedom went the way of the Dixie Chicks. Williams is a pig. So is his buddy Ted "Draft Dodger" Nugent.

    Besides, I lived in Hillbilly Hollywood for 20 years. None of them impress me. They are like Mammy in GWTW described Rhett and Scarlett, the are all just 'mules in horse harness.'

    Did ESPN have him arrested? If not, you are being ridiculous, again.

    Free speech?

    His wasn't effected. And neither was the Dixie Chicks when they made their faux paus.

    Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from economic or reputation consequences.
