Daley’s Ted Nugent article

By
From page A5 | February 28, 2014 |

EDITOR:

Attention Mr. Daley, I’m wondering where your priorities are? You have a soapbox by way of your weekly column however, it seems that you work all week trying to come up with issues that are not relevant to society. Case in point: “Ted Nugent — a new low in potty-mouth.” You got your time on your soapbox, now is my time on my soapbox.

I get it that you have been offended by Ted Nugent, but why? A columnist that offends the offender for a paycheck — is it any different? I think so. Think about it.

I disagree with your ranting. Your quote published in the Mountain Democrat on Feb. 21 blames Ted Nugent of basically being offensive, by his statement referring to President Obama, as “a communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.” Your comeback, and I quote from your column, “If not the worst thing I’ve ever heard anyone say about someone besides Hitler and Stalin…” Are you, Mr. Daley, insinuating that Ted Nugent’s statement could possibly lead to a society that promotes a degradation that will spawn death, destruction and concentration camps? Also I wonder why would Ted Nugent’s statement incite “crazies who will then take it out on somebody,” another quote from your article. What? Where did you come up with this? Too much time to think about it I guess, or just to fill column space.

You continue on in your column inferring that Ted Nugent’s statement is “self-indulgent crap.” Some may say the same of your column and here it is. While I don’t have a weekly column to voice an inept opinion like you do, I do not follow the “lemmings” over the cliff like you do. You, Mr. Daley, seem to be in the group heading off that cliff publishing statements such as, “But he can’t and shouldn’t get away with calling the president of the United States a ‘subhuman mongrel.’”

Mr. Daley, you’ve revealed yourself as a hypocrite by using a stealthy foul word (s***) in your column in your translation of a governor’s remarks defending Ted Nugent. Why would someone put words in a governor’s mouth and use foul words? Is the “correctness” you are trying to portray in your column less offensive than Ted Nugent’s statement? I don’t think so, but I’ll leave that up to you and the Mountain Democrat.

I guess, based on your feelings that you have expressed in your column, I should not be dissing you in this editorial letter, because I’ve hurt somebody’s feelings or have a different viewpoint. There is so much that needs to be addressed in this country other than complaining about one man’s opinion and wasting white space.

Mr. Daley, your usage of “blah blah blah” in your column perfectly describes your column. Oh, by the way, let’s take away everyone’s “compound” so staff writers with fanatical ideas don’t waste our time.
