Hank Williams Jr., booted from delivering the Monday Night Football theme song on ESPN after comparing President Obama with Hitler on "Fox & Friends," is fighting back.

"After reading hundreds of e-mails, I have made MY decision. By pulling my opening Oct 3rd, You (ESPN) stepped on the Toes of The First Amendment Freedom of Speech, so therefore Me, My Song, and All My Rowdy Friends are OUT OF HERE.  It’s been a great run," Williams said on his website.

Williams has written a song about Fox News -- way overdue, in our estimation -- and is going on ABC's "The View" on Tuesday to talk it out with Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, two of his more unexpected defenders.

“Whoopi and Joy understood what I was saying," Williams mused on his blog.  "After watching the clip of their show, I knew I needed to talk to them first.  Who knows Whoopi may run for President and I’ll be her Vice President…now that will really stir it up!"

Williams last week said in an interview on Fox that Obama playing golf with Republican House Speaker John Boehner "would be like Hitler playing golf with Benjamin Netanyahu."

Williams claims now, in song, that Fox distorted his remarks.

"So Fox 'n Friends wanna put me down/ Ask for my opinion/ Twist it all around," he sings in "I'll Keep My ..." He finishes the verse: "Well two can play that gotcha game you'll see."

Williams for 22 years has sung the theme song for Monday Night Football, changing the words each week to "All My Rowdy Friends Are Coming Over Tonight."

The ESPN flap created an unusual coalition of supporters for Williams, including Jon Stewart, Sarah Palin, Goldberg and Behar, and Rush Limbaugh.
