Larry Gatlin singing on Fox & Friends 
Fox News

County Singer Larry Gatlin had a special message on Wednesday’s Fox & Friends for Democratic Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings, singing that he would kick the Democrat in the “behind” if he insulted Texas, Raw Story reports.

On Monday Hastings called Texas a “crazy state” during a House committee hearing while discussing why the Affordable Care Act had not been fully implemented in some states, the site notes. “I don’t know about in your state, which I think is a crazy state to begin with—and I mean that just as I said it,” Hastings said at the time.


A Texas native, Gatlin took special offense, sharing a song in response to Hasting’s insult: “The eyes of Texas are upon you, better not come near, the eyes of Texas are upon you, I think you’d best steer clear,” the conservative activist sang, much to the amusement of host Steve Doocy. “You said things about my Texas that just were not kind, and if I get a chance, I’ll open up cowboy boot shop in your behind.”

He and Doocy then spoke about Hastings’ controversial past, which includes his being impeached as a federal judge and being ranked No. 1 in nepotism for paying salaries and fees to family. “You talk about low-information voters, they elected this man to be their congressman. They elected Debbie Waterfowl what’s-her-name … I think they elected her twice,” Gatlin said, referring, of course, to Democratic Florida Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz. “So of course, me saying this will automatically brand me a racist. After all, a racist is anyone who is winning an argument with a Democrat or a liberal.

“What part about getting your butt kicked in the November elections do y’all not understand?” he added. “That’s the bad part. But what part of getting your butt kicked if you come to Texas and talk bad about us, you better start [to] understand that too, Alcee. It’s not going to be pretty.”
