Ted Nugent is a disgrace to the GOP

Sometimes in politics, it isn’t who wins the vote but who loses. Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill of Missouri brilliantly saw this by funding the most extreme candidate in her opposition Republican primary field to square-off with her in the general election. She successfully chose Todd Akin, of “legitimate rape” fame, to be her opponent.

Wendy Davis has been similarly blessed with equally confounding behavior from an ally of her adversary, Greg Abbott, in their gubernatorial campaign in Texas. Davis didn’t provide funds to anyone as McCaskill did, nor is it a given that she will win, but she has been greatly helped in her gubernatorial campaign with Ted Nugent’s presence on behalf of Greg Abbott. Nugent said, “I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago Communist-raised, Communist-educated, Communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America.”

Shock jocks learned long ago that offensiveness sells. Prior to Nugent’s appearance, Greg Abbott’s campaign rally attendance averaged less than 100 people. Immediately after Nugent arrived on the scene, attendance tripled. Nugent is not merely a rock star, but an NRA board member and a fierce Second Amendment advocate, which attracts the hard-right conservative element to rallies.

Nugent and Abbott

Of guns, Ted Nugent, who avoided fighting in the Vietnam War, bragged during the Romney presidential campaign in April 2012, “”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

The quip not only attracted 2nd Amendment voters, but garnered well-deserved scrutiny from the Secret Service.

As long as Ted Nugent achieved popularity in rock and roll trafficking in offensive lyrics, he was merely a disgusting cultural footnote in the scheme of things. The 1st Amendment protects deeply offensive speech, unless it leads to actual deeds or violence. So Nugent’s lyrics for Jailbait, bragging about having sex with a 13-year-old girl is not illegal unless it leads to actual sex with children.

While Jailbait glorifies pedophilia, it doesn’t depict an actual sex scene, as child pornography does. The problem for conservatives is when they parlay Nugent’s popularity toward their own electoral ends. We know that Nugent’s attendance at conservative rallies led to significant attendance increases, but his “conservative values” ought be distinctly contradictory to “family values” conservatives claim to embrace. Apparently they are not.

Although Nugent famously called Hillary Clinton a “c*nt”, Sarah Palin swooned ecstatic over Ted Nugent at a recent Abbott rally saying, “If he [Abbott] is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me.” Ted Nugent is the gold standard of envy for Palin: if Nugent approves of Abbott, then so does she. If Palin has any principles, she set them all aside for electioneering, unless she supports misogyny, pedophilia, racism, homophobia and otherwise. Apparently she does.

More importantly, Nugent represents a deeper strain of division in far-right Republican politics of hollow patriotism. To them, it is OK to launch invectives of hate toward minorities, gays, women, the poor and the vulnerable. It is OK to threaten violence against our President and it OK to brag about sex with children, all this as long as Nugent gets out the vote for conservatives on election day.

Republican congressman Steve Stockman provided Ted Nugent the high honor of inviting him to attend the President’s State of the Union Address. Stockman did so to boost his own electability in his upcoming Senate race because Nugent represents “true” conservative values. Nugent was riding a conservative adoration wave until he heard he may have damaged Abbott’s electoral prospects with his hateful and divisive speech.

So Nugent apologized with, “I apologize for using the term [“subhuman mongrel’] I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics.”

He didn’t apologize for intimating that Barak Obama is an illegitimate President when he said Obama, “weasel[ed] his way into the top office,” but rather just using a Nazi term against Jews, “subhuman mongrel” or untermenschen.

In a larger scale, this story isn’t about Ted Nugent, Greg Abbott, Wendy Davis or Barack Obama; it is about the fracturing of a once-great political party into irreconcilable pieces. Republicans invited Nugent to their events, not because they want to use him to boost votes against Democrats, but because fratricide and infighting and their innate fear of the far-right wing of their party.

Each Republican candidate wants to demonstrate that he or she is more conservative than his opponent, or in Greg Abbott’s case, he wants to juice his popularity with the fanatical wing in the general election. Either way, it is tragedy for the Republican Party and the United States in general. A viable democracy needs credible debate from two reliable parties who bring substantive ideas to the table. Hate, violence and misogyny isn’t a formula for success, but in the short term Ted Nugent’s hate speech could be good for Wendy Davis’s prospects and she could benefit from his continued presence in Texas.

    why don’t you all just put your whitekkk hoods on and take your guns,and go play with yourselves,that is about all you conservatives do anyway.You all have shit for brains

  • Ganesha_akbar

    All this faux outrage over political hyperbole (aka, Free Speech).

    Meanwhile, Obama’s racial demogoguery incites a nation-wide epidemic of black-on-white violence, murder and mayhem and not a peep of outrage.

    Self-righteous folks are content with the hypocrisy of choking on a gnats while they swallow the mongrels.

    • EVERYONE WHO IS NOT GANESHA

      no one cares what you think about anything

      • Ganesha_akbar

        Fine by me… so long as they care what their “mongrel” sneering Preezy is doing to destroy this country.

        q.e.d.

  • slim

    ganesha – why you gotta be like this? it was funny when you were clowning on these obamabots, but that short bus thing was over the line and you know it.

    and you weren’t just riffing on obama, because you tried to act like you were sorry at first.

    this isn’t about politics and you making excuses and changing the subject is weak. my nephew has special needs and he’s got enough problems without people talking about his condition like there’s something wrong with him.

    • Ganesha_akbar

      Nonsense. This exercise doesn’t changing the subject. It illustrates the same satirical point Nugent made. If folks find this rhetoric revolting, then take it up with the President– not Nugent.

      Once again, your anguish is better directed at the Preezy of the United Sleezy and his “F’n retard” spitting Chief of Staff.

      Don’t beat the messenger.

      • slim

        you’re a liar, kid. you weren’t clownin on obama, b/c you said you were sorry and if you had just been making a point you wouldn’t have said you were sorry about it.

        you need to check yourself and think about what you say about kids with special needs.

        • Ganesha_akbar

          Rubbish. You’re lying. I clearly wrote, “if I apologize, do I earn a get out of damnation free card, like Obama does?”

          Try harder to keep up, stalker boy.

          • James Foster

            That’s not an apology.

            That’s you asking IF we’ll do something IF you apologize.

            Apologize because you understand that degrading children with special needs is wrong. Not because you think you can get something out of it. Not because you think you can find a way to save face. Do it because you want to be a decent human being.

            No one here’s going to bargain with you for it, not even me and Slim.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Correct. Americans don’t apologize for political satire. See also, Hustler Magazine, Inc. v. Falwell, 485 U.S. 46 (1988).

            What you’re indulging is the hypocrisy of choking on a gnat while you swallow the mongrel.

            Still waiting for Professor Obama’s apology for his public and serious “mongrel” sneer.

          • James Foster

            There is no way you are NOT a Democrat troll.

            How much does OFA pay you to pretend to be a conservative, attack kids with special needs, and then lie about it in public? No one believes that it was “just satire” so there has to be a better explanation for what you’re doing.

            Heck, even if you’re not a Democrat troll you might as well be. But I’m not buying it anymore.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            More psychological projection and deflection?

            Take your Haldol, RINO.

  • Ganesha_akbar

    Guess what else is a “disgrace”? St. Patty’s Day in Baltimore: “It got so bad that a State legislator in Baltimore… asked the Governor to declare the Inner Harbor a no travel zone because of the frequency and intensity of black mob violence.”

  • James Foster

    On behalf of ACTUAL conservatives, I’d like to apologize to everyone for Ganesha_akbar. It’s obvious that he just thinks he’s trolling and provoking people at this point. But it’s an empty joke, because the way he’s acting is completely indistinguishable from the folks who buy into his nonsense.

    I have to put up with these people every day because they’re still trying to take over our party. They’re losing our elections, they’re making us look like fools, and they’re destroying any hope of a credible opposition party to the Democrats, something our Country sorely needs. And no, you do not have to be a racist to oppose Barack Obama – but yes, the majority of these radicals are plainly racist. May God have mercy on our Country.

    • Ganesha_akbar

      heh… who knew John McCain had an pseudonymous avatar? Any relation to Hillary’s lover Vince?

      Please explain to folks how the McRINO wing isn’t losing elections? And while your asking for God’s mercy, we’re still waiting for Grandpa Munster to apologize for insisting that shouting “Allahu Akbar” is equivalent to a Christian saying “Thank God.” McRino also claimed that Syrian Qaedists are “moderates and I guarantee you they are moderates.” Good times.

      • James Foster

        You, sir, are the RINO. In fact, if I bought into conspiracy theories as easily as you do, I’d assume you’re a Democrat plant who’s just here to make true conservatives look bad.

        I worked in the primaries against McCain. And Romney. Unlike you, who undoubtedly talks a big game and then folds like a card table in the end. Unlike you, I’ve studied the Constitution, I’ve studied capitalism, and I’ve studied history.

        You’re why our Founding Fathers had the wisdom to make this a Republic, not a democracy. You aren’t a conservative, you’re just a loudmouthed dolt.

        • Ganesha_akbar

          uh-huh… why so loudmouthed and mad? Project much?

          Precisely what have I wrote that was conspiratorial or “racist”? I’m advocating anti-racism. Try harder to keep up, short bus.

          • James Foster

            You can’t even deny being a bigot without using an ableist slur. Say “short bus” around Gov. Palin and see if SHE approves. Shame on you.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Sorry. But (once again) it was your hero Obama who sneered “short bus” on the Tonight Show– followed up by his “F’n retard” spitting Chief-of-Staff.

            Once again, the (alleged) great sin of the artist was having the audacity to illustrate Obama’s absurdity by being absurd. Don’t beat the messenger. It’s Obama who sets this conversational tone.

            You’re all hoist upon your Obamabot petards.

            Don’t. You. Look. Stupid.

          • Carl Woodward

            Nope, sorry, Obama shouldn’t have said that either and he’s a terrible person for doing it.

            Sorry, you don’t get off the hook by finding other people who are just as gross as you are. And your failure to get that is evidence enough that you aren’t sorry at all.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Wow. You actually found something condemnable about Obama. That’s progress.

            Now if only we could get Ann Coulter to do her Obama imitator shtick.

          • Carl Woodward

            You used a slur against children. With special needs. Then you lied and pretended you were just riffing on Obama. Because you think it’s okay to use slurs against children with special needs as long as it’s a political attack.

            And you’re still trying to change the subject.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            I repeated Obama’s rhetoric. Own his hate… and your own vile Nas Rap.

          • Carl Woodward

            WOW, yikes. Did you really just say that? Gross.

            So, if I apologize, do I earn a get out of damnation free card, like Obama does?

      • Ganesha_akbar

        Indeed. We’ve heard those lyrics before.

        “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community… Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”

        • Carl Woodward

          That all sounds pretty reasonable. I thought you were against black liberation theology, and here you are posting these flattering excerpts!

          • Ganesha_akbar

    Nugent’s great sin was having the audacity to illustrate Obama’s absurdity by being absurd. I doubt Professor Obama’s Nietzscheian reference (to “mongrel” African-Americans) was intended as an ironic rhetorical device to suggest they’re actually “ubermenchen.” Learned Leftists need to explain better why “untermenchen” (subhuman) isn’t implicit in Professor Obama’s insane “mongrel” racial identity theories.

    In short, the burden of proof is on the “mongrel” accuser. Don’t beat the satirical messenger.

    • Kenny Pick

      I kept hearing this lame strawman last week from the troll-o-sphere.

      Some basic English 101 for the Trolls:

      The word “mongrel” isn’t racist used in the proper context. Mongrel has similar origins to the word ‘among.’ Now when you use a derogatory adjective, that changes the whole thing. When you say, “subhuman” before mongrel you are saying people that are of mixed ethnicity are not human.

      It’s like me calling someone that supports Ted Nugent “a Conservative.” That’s not insulting, right? But if I said someone was “a filthy, lying, pig-ignorant, teabagging Conservative”, that might hurt feelings.

      • Douglas Christian

        Kenny,

        Calling Obama “subhuman” is racist, or not fully human. Putting “mongrel” before that indicates it’s not Obama’s intellect Nugent is spitting on.

        • Ganesha_akbar

          Rubbish. Nugent’s satire used the adjective “subhuman” to modify Obama’s noun “mongrel.” Obama slung his fetid “mongrel” accusation. Nugent has no obligation to explain Obama’s “Black Liberation Theology” grounded racial identity theories. The burden of proof is on the mongrel-sneering accuser (Obama).

          Try harder to understand basic sentence structure while you defend the indefensible.

          • Kenny Pick

            Coming from the guy that doesn’t understand the meaning of satire.

          Nugent admitted to sex with girls (plural) that would normally sleep with boys in High School. He wrote a song “Jailbait” championing the idea of sex with a 13 year old. Courtney Love said she performed a sex act on Nugent when she was 12 years old. Love is not the most reliable source, but Nugent has never denied their encounter. He simply said he “didn’t remember.” He got legal guardianship of a girl when she was 17 and had sex with her. At the very least, Nugent has a pattern of being a sexual predator. If you can defend this kind of behavior, good for you. I pity your children if you have any.

            Well, the best part of Black liberation theology is that it openly identifies white people as historical oppressors who to this very day continue to benefit from the crimes of the past.

            Anyone who knows anything about Christianity and takes it seriously understands how this is a deeply Christian message, enacting Christ’s concern for the powerless and oppressed. Black liberation theology has also served as an important corrective to some of the heretical and frankly Satanic abuses of Scripture – particularly justifications for slavery, cynical apologetics for capitalism, and so on – that are unfortunately still with us today.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Finally! An honest exegesis of Obama’s “mongrel” sneer. Tell us more about “the best part”;

            Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community… Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”

            Sounds crazy? It is– and Leftists are. Flashback 2008: “you’re about to be ruled by the black man, cracker”

          • Carl Woodward

            That was an explanation of black liberation theology, bozo, not your bizarre ideas about nobummernation or whatever you insane dinguses are calling him these days

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Don’t be so modest. We need Obama toadies to candidly tell us more about his “Black Liberation Theology” grounded racial identity theories.

            Please. Go on… maybe another hate-whitey rap video?

          • Carl Woodward

            Dude, I wish. Sadly Obama’s far too right-wing to appreciate Black liberation theology. It’s too bad.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            q.e.d.

          • Carl Woodward

            Nugent has written and contributed to multiple books on politics. One of them was a New York Times bestseller. If RWNJs think that he shouldn’t be taken seriously, a good start would be to stop paying him en masse to talk about politics

    • Carl Woodward

      hahaha

      Guy, making the hilarious argument you’re trying to make is bad enough – there is no need to try to dress it up with some catastrophically dumb misunderstanding on Nietzsche on top of that

      • Ganesha_akbar

        Empty derision? That’s all you’ve got?

        pffl… try Neudexta.

        • Kenny Pick

          Why do you keep pushing this drug? Apparently you have a lot of knowledge of it or experience eating them by the handful.

          Empty derision? Again, you project on others your simplistic methodology.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Empty denials? That’s all you’ve got?

            pffl… stop drinking your bongwater.

          • Kenny Pick

            Empty denial of what? You are making less and less sense as you try to justify your moronic hero & his pathetic actions.

            Stop pretending that you can engage in an intelligent argument. You can’t even comprehend the basic meaning of words or sentence structure.

            Actually, you’re beginning to sound like ol’ Nugent! Is that you Teddy? Trying to wriggle out of your legacy of bad behavior?

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Once again, the burden of proof is on the “mongrel” accuser (Obama).

            Try harder to avoid defending Obama’s ugly “mongrel” sneer by beating the satirical messenger.

          • Kenny Pick

            So all you can do is copy and paste. I see. You lose. I’ve addressed this oft pasted nonsense two times now.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Rubbish. The cited indictment stands. Once again, the burden of proof is on the “mongrel” accuser (Obama).

            Try harder to avoid defending Obama’s ugly “mongrel” sneer by beating the satirical messenger.

            That’ll be the day when you can give someone a grade.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            You earned it. Own it.

            #dismissed

          • Carl Woodward

            Pretty hilarious that you’re placing “the burden of proof” on Obama while openly describing your conjecture about intent as an “indictment”, for reasons you’re undoubtedly far too stupid to understand

          • Ganesha_akbar

            The “mongrel” accusation was Obama’s proclamation– not conjecture.

            Why is that so hard for Carl to wrap his brain around?

          • Carl Woodward

            The conjecture regards what Obama “intended” – your word – which I guess had something to do with Nietzsche and a few German words that you don’t really understand? No one’s disputing the words that Obama said. I’m sorry this is so hard for you :(

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Obama’s meaning is precisely what Nugent disputed. The fact that Carl can’t wrap his brain around Professor Obama’s “Black Liberation Theology” is undersurprising– neither could The View lapdogs.

          • Carl Woodward

            Exactly, Obama’s meaning is what’s in “dispute”. This dispute does not somehow default to the assumption that Obama was talking about *crazy gibberish about Nietzsche* for some insane reason

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Professor Obama no doubt studied Nietzsche’s take, but his ugly “mongrel” reference was more likely grounded in his peculiar race-based theological beliefs;

            “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and against white people, then he is a murderer, and we had better kill him. The task of black theology is to kill gods who do not belong to the black community… Black theology will accept only the love of God which participates in the destruction of the white enemy. What we need is the divine love as expressed in Black Power, which is the power of black people to destroy their oppressors here and now by any means at their disposal. Unless God is participating in this holy activity, we must reject his love.”

            Sounds crazy? It is– and Leftists are.

          • Douglas Christian

            Your argument isn’t crazy: it’s stupid. Yes, Obama had gone to Jeremiah Wright’s church, but Obama rejected him. Your logic seems to be that if Obama had Wright in his sphere at some point in his life, that Obama’s thinking is identical to Wright’s. That is inane.

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Empty derision? That’s all you’ve got?

            pffl… the cited indictment stands.

            ** Obama: “They Bring a Knife…We Bring a Gun”
            ** Obama to His Followers: “Get in Their Faces!”
            ** Obama on ACORN Mobs: “I don’t want to quell anger. I think people are right to be angry! I’m angry!”
            ** Obama to His Mercenary Army: “Hit Back Twice As Hard”
            ** Obama on the private sector: “We talk to these folks… so I know whose ass to kick.“
            ** Obama to voters: Republican victory would mean “hand to hand combat”
            ** Obama to lib supporters: “It’s time to Fight for it.”
            ** Obama to Latino supporters: “Punish your enemies.”
            ** Obama to democrats: “I’m itching for a fight.”

          • Douglas Christian

            Were fiction truth, but it isn’t. We are not living in Alice in Wonderland, Ganesha. But if you have gone down the rabbit hole, I have a suggestion from Lewis Carol:

            If you had a world of your own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary-wise; what it is it wouldn’t be, and what it wouldn’t be, it would. Right?

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Are you saying Obama never spat those words? Or just bragging about your magical thinking skills?
            Wishful think much?

          • Carl Woodward

            haha i love the smug “no doubt”, as if you have the faintest idea what law professors teach or study

            (hint: it’s not Friedrich Nietzsche)

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Cluebat to Carl: Obama bragged about being inspired by studying Nietzsche at Occidental College.

            Don’t. You. Look. Stupid.

        • Carl Woodward

          Do you feel like you deserve anything more than empty derision? If so I’ve got some bad news :

          • Ganesha_akbar

            meh

          • Carl Woodward

            nothing conveys the apathy and dismissal of “meh” like feeling the need to type it out and post it

            (because you’ve been utterly humiliated)

          • Ganesha_akbar

            This from the Carl clown sporting a NOI bowtie in the DMV parking lot last week.

          • Carl Woodward

            Looks pretty sharp to me! And I love how the mere picture of black men is enough to scare you :D

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Once again, thanks for you candid admiration for black-supremacists.

          • Carl Woodward

            Hmm, you seem to be confused

          • Ganesha_akbar

            Confused. Well, this is Baltimore afterall. Flashback 2012: “It got so bad that a State legislator in Baltimore… asked the Governor to declare the Inner Harbor a no travel zone because of the frequency and intensity of black mob violence.”

        Inis, Her name is spelled Hillary and she probably will sail into office whoever the GOP puts up, too bad for America in her post Christian era.

        • Kenny Pick

          ” too bad for America in her post Christian era”

          When was this? There have always been Christians in America. You’ve just never been allowed to turn our country into a theocracy. A bunch of you tried and failed but our nation of secular laws won out. We are not, never have been & never will be a “Christian Nation.” If we were a Christian Nation, why do we need a secular Constitution? Wouldn’t it make more sense to use the Bible?

  • alaskan1st

    Anyone venture to explain just when conservatives started to hold racist, draft dodging,pedophiles in such high regard???

    • democratsarecrooks

      Same time that racist democrats became politicians (Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are fine examples of racists). You should study the history of liberal democrats before making such statements.

      • alaskan1st

        Don’t deflect. It makes you sound like a 6 yr old. I’m not a liberal democrat. I was just wondering when the party of superior morality and family values started to hold someone like Ped NUgent in such high regard.

        • democratsarecrooks

          Not deflecting, just trying to make it so a 3 yr old like you can understand. The republicans don’t hold Nugent in high regard, the liberal media just makes it look like that. It deflects from the the real problem, the incompetency of Obama.

          • Great_Timbini

            You are on full flight from reality.

          • Douglas Christian

            The Republicans invited Ted Nugent to the State of the Union address. Perhaps because they like his song, Jailbait?

          • Inis_Magrath

            I think GOP candidates actively seeking to have Ted be a part of their political election campaign is evidence of the appearance of high regard. The facts speak for themselves, no “liberal media” conspiracy theories required.

          • Carl Woodward

            psst, democratsarecrooks – it’s not really a brilliant strategy for you to openly argue that you’re getting outwitted by an alleged 3 year old

        • Kenny Pick

          LOL! Ped Nugent! Oh that’s good.

      • Great_Timbini

        Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are racists? That is so fucking ludicrous there’s really no reply to it, other than you’re nuts.

        • democratsarecrooks

          Remember Jesse Jackson’s discussion about hymietown. Or Al Sharpton’s rant on the white race being the cancer of human history. Look it up Great Timbini, otherwise you’re a fool.

          • Great_Timbini

            And their deportment and words spoken since then have proven them to be anything but racists. Look it up Crook.
            The reality train has left the station and you’re not on it.

          • Carl Woodward

            hmm i dunno man, as a white man seems to me like Al has a pretty compelling point

  • democratsarecrooks

    Ted Nugent is a disgrace, but he is just a performer. Barack Obama is a disgrace to the entire country. Boycott Ted Nugent, and IMPEACH Barack Obama!

    • Douglas Christian

      And how do you leap from the performances of Nugent to impeachment of Obama? The disconnect is wider than the Pacific Ocean.

    • Carl Woodward

      In what sense is he “just a performer”? He’s contributed to and personally written several books on politics – his most recent was a New York Times Best Seller. Today he’s far better known for his political views than the handful of popular songs he had nearly forty years ago.

      If you want to pretend that Nugent’s views are out of the conservative mainstream, or somehow less rigorous and defensible than what passes for intellect in today’s GOP, then make that argument. Giving him a pass just because he also plays the guitar is lazy and completely implausible.

    • Kenny Pick

      A performer that is part of the gun lobby, regularly performs for, appears with & endorses GOP candidates, has attended the SOTU & regularly appears on Fox, CNN & loads of Conservative Radio shows. So yes, I will boycott Nugent and everyone that has ever affiliated with him. So that means never voting GOP or Tea Party… EVER. As for impeaching Obama. Get a grip. If Bush wasn’t impeached, Obama won’t be either. The Bush crimes were FAR greater than anything that has gone on in the Obama administration.

  • JeffreyFordham

    How did we get to this point where a classless and ignorant former rock musician could call a sitting president an “sub human mongrol” …..and still have millions of Americans just fine with that ? ………..especially those from states who constantly talk about family values, morality, and the love of Jesus Christ?

    Naturally I would expect every preacher and church leader in America to defend the office of the presidency from this type of blatant disrespect ..even if that duly elected president was not who they wanted in office. That would indeed be the right and moral thing to do……but what do I see and hear from them? not much if anything. Why isn’t Pat Robertson on his show the next day condemning Ted Nugent for showing such disrespect to the office of the presidency as he should ? I won’t hold my breath on that one.

    Remember back in the early 1970s when Don Meridith during the end of one of the monday night football games decided to simply call Richard Nixon by the nicname “tricky dick” ? You would have thought the world was going to come to an end. The revolting disgust the next day by conservatives filled the airwaves, and the print media all had front page mention about the disrespect shown by Meredith. The level of outrage was so deep that ABC sports and Mr. Arlidge made Merdith publically apologize the very next week at the begining of the broadcast. Maybe it now seems as no big deal, but as a 12 year old boy I was taught that there was a line you did not cross when it came to your first amdenment rights, and especially to a duly elected president. Voicing an opinion is one thing..using foul language to denegrate the highest leader in in our representative democracy is another.

    I would expect moral upstanding Texans who carry a bible to stand up to Ted Nugent and tell Mr. Abbott that they dislike who hes brought along to help him campaign. I would also expect that this has hurt the Abbott campaign but the latest polling shows its helped Abbott even more which just reinforces my feeling about a majority of Christians today. Hiding behind a bible when its convenient, and using Jesus as a facade of morality that you really have no intention of living up to I find really abhorrent and the worst kind of hypocritical behavior. Its also a sad commentary on this country today.

    • Douglas Christian

      Well said Jeffrey. Fredrick Douglass wondered in his memoirs why self-proclaimed Christians could at once preach all those nice Christian things and simultaneously own slaves. Bible thumping is part of the equation of hypocrisy.

  • Jenny Green

    At this point, the GOP is a disgrace to the GOP. They have so much going wrong that Nugent is but a candy sprinkle on the frosting of the cupcake.
