Well, well, Ted blew a gasket. What I don’t see mentioned here is WHY he blew a gasket, but I think you and I can figure this one out.
See, that damn librul CBS COMMANIST reporter mentioned a year. 1970, to be exact. And when you mention the year 1970 to Ted Nugent, he starts sweating. As you would, if you happened to be Ted Nugent.
See, Ted may not have been an “activist” in that era, but he damn sure activated his bowels and bladder. Without taking his clothes off. For days. Why did he do that? Of course you know why: he did it because he’s got to be one of the biggest cowards that any society ever produced. Ted was willing to turn himself into walking sewage to avoid having to serve his country in Vietnam. He figured no Draft Board would ever let such a nasty, filthy son of a bitch anywhere near the United States Army, and he was right on the money. But ever since then, Ted has been trying to convince everyone that he’s a macho-man tough guy, who loves big guns, UHMUHRICUH, and the fact that we are perpetually at war with someone. Yes sir (or ma’am, whatever your anatomy may be,) Ted is all Red White, and Blue these days-he LOVES war, and wants MORE of it. But you start talking about years like 1970, and Ted starts wondering if you’re going to mention what a (literally) shitty coward he was back then. He wasn’t Red, White, and Blue in those days.
He was yellow and brown. And he doesn’t want to talk about that anymore, although he used to brag about how “smart” he was back then, and how “stupid” the young men who went off to fight and DIE were.
Mitt Romney sought and got Nugent’s endorsement – and Nugent says he heard from the Romney campaign after his NRA speech and that they “expressed support.”
“I got the sensation and not from Mitt himself, or Mrs. Romney, ‘Stay on course, Ted.’ Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing,” Nugent said.
Responding to some of Nugent’s latest comments, the Romney campaign has publicly said that “divisive language is offensive and inappropriate, no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”
When Glor observed that, “April was one of the more interesting months I think you’ve ever had,” Nugent said, “Jeff, that’s where you’re wrong. It’s always been like this.”
“It has not always been like this,” Glor countered.
“It’s always been like this,” Nugent said in a raised voice.
“You have gotten more boisterous,” Glor said.
“No way!” Nugent replied. “You go back and look at these interviews, it has always been like this.”
“Politically speaking, you are more of an activist now than you were in 1970,’ Glor said.
“The political activism is being accelerated because the conditions demand accelerated activism, yes,” Nugent conceded.
Nugent bristled at the suggestion that he isn’t the kind of moderate Romney will likely need support from to win the general election.
“If you examine how I conduct myself,” Nugent said, “I don’t think a day goes by in my life for many, many years now that we don’t do charity work for children. … Call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life.
“Call me,” Nugent continued in a raised, irritated voice, “when you meet someone who does that more than I do. Because that’s really moderate. In fact, you know what that is? That’s extreme. … I’m an extremely loving, passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy. … And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll [expletive]. Or [expletive]. How’s that sound?”
We have no idea where that unexpected outburst came from. The second part of it directed to a female CBS News producer who was off-camera.
Nugent’s wife told him after the interview ended that Nugent owed an apology to the producer. And Nugent did. He also called Glor Thursday and said that, after the interview, he was rushed to the emergency room and had a kidney stone removed. So, that’s what Nugent said may have contributed to his high level of energy.
Nugent said he wasn’t surprised when the Secret Service contacted him. “In this environment, when you have the conditions in our government, no, I’m not surprised.”
“They came in as professionals,” he told Jeff Glor at his Texas ranch, “Good, solid, professional law enforcement representatives, some of the greatest warriors in law enforcement. Anyway, so we had a meeting and it was serious, dead serious, because I can actually be serious, and it was serious. … I feel sorry for liberals who can be that brain dead as to take a clear statement of fear on my part and turn it into a threat against somebody else.”
Nugent said he feels the agents weren’t concerned that he had actually threatened the president – only that someone claimed he had. “In fact,” Nugent continued, “I gotta tell you, and I don’t mean to put any professionals on the spot, and I don’t have the greatest hearing in the world, but I thought I heard something to the point of, ‘I didn’t think so.”‘
Nugent described the meeting as “adorable” and says he was “absolutely” happy with the way things went, and, “Nothing makes me happier than me.”
“They did their job perfectly, I answered the questions perfectly,” Nugent says.
Nugent did just have the dates from his just-begun Midwest Rock ‘n’ Roll Express cancelled by the U.S. Army – a group he considers the core of his support.
“These military guys are my blood brothers,” Nugent said.
I wish his “blood brothers” were my age. I heard his bragging. And I tell you right now, I consider him to be beneath the level of a slug. When he sets foot on a military reservation, and gets paid for it, he is figuratively pissing and shitting all over again-but this time, he’s doing it on the graves of every serviceperson who went off, and sacrificed, for their country, so that a yellow-backed coward (and admitted pedophile, never forget that) could stay here and rake in the big bucks.
But, you know, I don’t think that cowardice is all that Ted is afraid we’ll find out about. Let’s see if we can find out what ELSE might be shaming the Motor City Meekman, shall we?
-He loves guns, Oh yes, he absolutely LOVES to play with guns. The bigger, the better. The more MANly!
-His songwork has been incredibly, obnoxiously misogynist. No grown woman with any measure of self-respect could hear Ted’s songs and not come away offended by it.
-He has a well-known preference for underage girls. Girls who, shall we say, might not be as knowledgeable of the “normal” male anatomy as their older counterparts would probably be.
I’m thinking that Ted has been bedeviled by another issue, in addition to his cowardice. He sure as hell acts like a guy with some, uh, shortcomings.
Does he not?
