Trump/Nugent: In your heart you know they’re blight

Posted in Culture of Lickspittle, Ted Nugent, WhiteManistan at 2:12 pm by George Smith

Late this week, Timothy Egan at the New York Times, wrote “Trump Is the Poison His Party Concocted.” I could also describe it in four words: the Ted Nugent vote.


They say he’s trashing the Republic brand. They say he’s “stirring up the crazies,” in the words of Senator John McCain. But Trump is the brand, to a sizable degree. And the crazies have long flourished in the Republican media wing, where any amount of gaseous buffoonery goes unchallenged.

And now that the party can’t control him, Trump threatens to destroy its chances if he doesn’t get his way, running as an independent with unlimited wealth — a political suicide bomb.

Trump is a byproduct of all the toxic elements Republicans have thrown into their brew over the last decade or so — from birtherism to race-based hatred of immigrants, from nihilists who shut down government to elected officials who shout “You lie!” at their commander in chief.

And for years, GOP pols have been proud to also be associated with the classic rock kleagle, Ted Nugent, the only celebrity musician I know that’s ever been investigated by the US Secret Service.

Nugent is the boiled-down essence of the angry extreme right-wing extremist, a nativist and public bigot who regularly puts down everyone unlike him, but reserving his fury primarily for the president, African Americans living in cities and the need to destroy the US government, which he calls Fedzilla. His enemies are all subhuman, bloodsucking punks and Chicago is “Chiraq,” downtown south Los Angeles a place that ought to be machine-gunned from a helicopter.

And on the day John Russell Houser shot people in the back, killing two women in Lafayette, Louisiana, he was writing this for the right-wing hate speech and news site, WND:

Ban all gun-free slaughter zones. Ban freedom-haters from public office by supporting and voting for those candidates who support freedom and common sense while punishing those who want to put their boots on the throat of freedom and common sense.

A week earlier he devoted his column to describing what a potential GOP president must be prepared to do:

Only those on dope fail to recognize how foolish those on dope look, sound, smell and act like braindead dopey morons.

The trick is to not be a braindead moron and stay off dope.

The only sheep dishonest enough to vote Democrat are the dopey sheep benefiting from the redistribution scam artists, thereby enslaving the sheep to further engineered dependency …

Job 1: Annihilate anybody and everybody who publicly declares hate or danger to America, Americans or our allies. Unleash the greatest military might upon them with a fury that is inescapable. No more playing “containment” games. Wipe them out.

Next, end the scourge of bribing Americans and illegal invaders to be bloodsucking, nonproductive leaches [sic] riding on the backs of hardworking, sacrificing American families.

Secure the borders for God’s sake, and for the sake of a safe, excellent American America. Invaders must return home or face painful, extremely uncomfortable punishing jail time. Legal good, illegal bad. Know it, enforce it.

American America! The week before Nugent recommended Trump be given the Medal of Freedom, effectively endorsing him for President.

Like Trump, Ted Nugent is the Republican brand. He has been for years.

And if you’re curious as to what Ted Nugent looks like when his summer tour season is canceled, click here.

It’s not a pretty sight.

Hey, pot, see your friend, kettle!

Nugent, passing through Lafayette, pays his respects.

He calls it “heartware.”

    I read that side peice about Ted’s summer camp.

    So, he gives speeches to the kids against using drugs and alcohol, along with hunting and fishing lessons.

    Am I strange? From childhood, I’ve always associated fishing trips with beer drinking. In fact, a lot of beer drinking…

    Nope, since you’re from the same vicinity where I grew up, I had the same experience. Fishing and binge drinking, on the lake, near the stream, in the cabin.

    And now for the real reason why Nugent was in Lafayette, coincidence, a paid appearance at a weekend gun show in town.

    Where, of course, the natives were uneasy with the really bad timing.


    It is inappropriate, said Nugent, to talk about anything having to do with gun control at right wing white supremacist and lunatic John Houser’s massacre site. Have some more buttered venison and soda, Ted.
