But it's okay if I make fun of him, right? Because that's what mamas do when the kids go off the deep end and think they're too cool for school. Usually the kids in question are still what we might consider kids and have a chance to outgrow it, but, as in Teddy's case, mavericks do cut loose and stay loose. Sometimes they get lost in their own kid persona and never grow up. It's sort of sad, watching them, but they never stop thinking they're pretty damned cute, so what's the harm?
So here's what that bad Teddy has done this time. In his agony over not actually having the power after all to unseat/destroy the sitting president, Barack Hussein Obama, and all the stray Democrats (a power he, sadly, truly believed he had--see first sentence below), he's gone back to his old Devil's Thesaurus to find just the right words to settle this thing once and for all. At the 2014 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT) last week, he took a moment to tell a reporter for Guns.com what he thought of Barack Obama. That Obama is one bad dude. He is, in fact, according to Teddy, a "sub-human mongrel."
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. I am heartbroken but I am not giving up. I think America will be America again when Barack Obama, [Attorney General] Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, [Sen.] Dick Durbin, [former New York City Mayor] Michael Bloomberg and all of the liberal Democrats are in jail facing the just due punishment that their treasonous acts are clearly apparent.
So a lot of people would call that inflammatory speech. Well I would call it inflammatory speech when it's your job to protect Americans and you look into the television camera and say what difference does it make that I failed in my job to provide security and we have four dead Americans. What difference does that make? Not to a chimpanzee or Hillary Clinton, I guess it doesn't matter.
I don't know how Hillary got in there. I would think it's because she could be a contender--a Democratic contender--in 2016, and that would be bad for his guys. But he's a Hillary-hater from way back. At a 2007 concert he told Hillary to ride his machine gun and called her a worthless bitch. (He had some choice words for Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein at that same concert, but you'll understand if I pass on posting them here. )
So. Two things happened that gave Teddy the idea that he might be more than an old rock star--that he might actually have a future in galvanizing Americans to jump into rabbit holes and view the world in a topsy-turvy setting having nothing to do with reality: The NRA gave him a position on their board, and Texas Tea Party congressman Steve Stockman got him a seat at last year's State of the Union address.
That last gig thrilled Teddy no end:
He had a good career going there for a while as a singer. ("Cat Scratch Fever") He could carry a tune and everything. ("Cat Scratch Fever") But it could be that the crowds stopped coming (just guessing) and if he wanted to stay in the spotlight he had to find a new gig.
But what's a Medicare-eligible guy to do when he has his big 'ol patriot heart set on saving the country from assorted Muslims and Communists and uppity wimmin but his only talents lean more toward screaming and cussing and prevaricating while making goofy faces and toting big-ass guns?
Beats me. I'm just glad he's not my kid.
Didn't he promise that he was going to be dead by 2013 if Obama got re-elected?ReplyDelete
Yeah, he did, but you know how kids are. They'll say anything.ReplyDelete
Hey, he's played more State Fairs than the Beatles!ReplyDelete
I've become fairly disgusted with this guy. That's saying a lot considering that guitar driven hard rock is my preferred genre of music. You may be on to something with his "new gig". I remember when he came to El Paso, TX. It was the late 80s before I had ever heard anything political from him at all. An article in the news paper stated that he was only able to draw 500 people in a city of a thousand times that in population. He was able to draw far larger crowds only 10 years earlier. It's sad that he went down this path. I mean seriously, sub-human mongrel? I wouldn't condone that even if we shared a far more similar ideology.ReplyDelete
Presidential material, fer shur!ReplyDelete
Ah, so I was right about his waning rocker popularity? Thought so. A lot of waning rockers are giving back by helping people in need. I guess Teddy doesn't see that as profitable enough.ReplyDelete
Regarding his music, Nugent had some guitar chops, but the lyrical content of his heyday songs pointed to the Neanderthal misogynism of his present day rants. While I suppose one could find a line like the one from "Cat Scratch Fever", "I make that pussy purr with a stroke of my hand", erotic in some way, "Stranglehold" ends with this:ReplyDelete
"You ran the night that you left meYou put me in my place
I got you in a stranglehold, baby
That night I crushed your face"
I honestly know nothing about Nugent's music. I'm only really aware of his crazy Right Wing rants and grabbed "Cat Scratch Fever" because it's the only one I've ever heard of before. I expect all that music to be misogynistic, so nothing he might sing would surprise me. In fact, nothing he says surprises me, either. I live in Michigan and his antics are well known there.ReplyDelete
The NRA crowd likes to blame all gun incidents on lunatics with guns (LWG'S). Seems to me Nugent qualifies and should be locked up lest he go bonkers and shoot someone.ReplyDelete
Yes, I think so. At least based on the limited observations that I am able to provide.ReplyDelete
I think Ted HAS succumbed to cat-scratch fever. It does cause brain damage….(Herlander Walking)ReplyDelete
He seems to like looking like a lunatic with a gun. His poses are many, the crazier the better.ReplyDelete
Dead or in jail; still waiting for him to keep his promise.ReplyDelete
yeah he was going to jail or be dead, well it shows you that Conservative bark is worse than their bite!ReplyDelete
yeah a guy that shits his pants to get out of the Military, then thinks its ok for others to sacrifice their lives for his freedom to be an asshole!ReplyDelete
Anybody that listens to a guy that proudly brags about shitting his pants......is a shit headReplyDelete
Off topic, but if any of you came here from a Facebook page could you point me to it? I'm getting hundreds of hits from Facebook and I don't know where they're coming from.ReplyDelete
there is a link to Liberaland on Alan Colmes FB page. Could that be it?ReplyDelete
Let's get in a loop:
Thanks, Javadavis. That could be it. I think my column links are there automatically whenever I post on Liberaland and I haven't seen that kind of traffic before. Could be the subject, though. Everybody had something to say about Nugent!ReplyDelete
