The weekly Daley: Ted Nugent — a new low in potty-mouth

By
From page A4 | February 21, 2014 | 157 Comments

If I hadn’t just read it online, I wouldn’t have been able to tell you the title of a Ted Nugent song. “Cat Scratch Fever” apparently is the best known, just not by me. I’m sure I must have heard it back in the day, but I don’t remember anything about it. I also read a sampling of awful things the “aging rocker” (a common descriptive term) has said on occasion. He really is something.

If you’ve just come down from an outer space trip or an out-of-body experience, you may not know that not long ago the “aging rocker” referred to Barack Obama  as “a communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.” You read it correctly: “a communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel.”

If not the worst thing I’ve ever heard anyone say about someone besides Hitler or Stalin, it’s close. I’m OK with the “communist-nurtured” part. That’s not new or unusual — always a little goofy-sounding these days, but not much of an insult. “Subhuman mongrel” though, now that is nasty. I wouldn’t have put up with hearing anyone say that about George W. Bush, with whom I disagreed on many fronts. Heck, I would have taken that bullet for Richard Nixon, if you can believe it.

Criticize vigorously, chastise vehemently, skewer with wit, lampoon till the cows come home, but don’t call a fellow living being a “subhuman mongrel.”

Newt Gingrich, poster boy for the smarmy politician, in my book, tried to defend Nugent by bad mouthing the “liberal media” for not going after Democrats for lame sayings. Joe Biden, during the 2012 elections, said the Republican would put African Americans back in chains if elected. That was rude, crude and stupid, and he was called on it. But compared to Nugent’s diatribe, no comparison, in my book.

Newt, who was doing his girlfriend (while married) and while he was impeaching Clinton for his peccadilloes, then claimed, “Sure, I did it, but I didn’t lie to Congress” about it, somehow thinks that’s the high ground. I get the political thrust and the political motivation. I don’t get the “holier than thou because you are just as bad, and therefore I’m not bad at all” justification.

You just don’t call the president of your own country a “subhuman mongrel.” Free speech notwithstanding. The guy running for governor of Texas (and for whom Nugent was campaigning) said he doesn’t necessarily agree with or even know “whatever Mr. Nugent might have said in the past.” But he’s glad to have the support of a guy who stands up for the Second Amendment, blah, blah, blah. Translation: “I’m glad to have someone say all the s*** I really want to say but can’t, because I still have to appeal to some people who might be offended if I actually said it.”

It’s despicable. It’s repulsive. It’s incivility at its highest point, and there are those who think it’s OK because “it’s true” or it’s “First Amendment rights” or it’s “what the other guys do.” But it’s not any of that. It’s repugnant. And of course the First Amendment allows it because it’s free speech. I’m totally good with that.

Is it good for the country? I’d have to say no, it isn’t. It’s inflammatory and ugly and the kind of thing that appeals to a certain element of crazies who will then take it out on somebody in an IRS office or a post office or local Farm Bureau. It’s the kind of self-indulgent crap that someone like Ted Nugent can get away with because he’s got big fancy lawyers and lives in a compound and has the First and Second Amendment on his side. And he does have all of that.

Does he have “right” on his side? I have to think not. He can disagree with policies. He can oppose this or that law or ordinance. He can object to any number of things he disagrees with while living in his 300-acre compound. But he can’t and shouldn’t get away with calling the president of the United States a “subhuman mongrel.”

    The most humane of all pursuits and endeavors is individual liberty. It is sub-human to seek to alter, restrict, redefine, impose upon, limit or diminish individual liberty. This country, was founded on individual liberty, with everything emanating from that fundamental and inalienable right. How do you fundamentally transform a country without fundamentally transforming that which it was founded on? Who made the fundamental transformation of this country the central theme to his campaign to be the leader of the free world? How could the fundamental transformation of individual liberty be called anything other than sub-human?

    Daley, you just don’t get it. Obama is an ILLIGITAMATE president. We should call him whatever we want to. How about calling him a ‘diabolic socialist ideologue intent on fundamental destruction to our economy, our prosperity through chronic lying, deception, manipulating our currency and alienating our allies in a time of nuclear proliferation’? Is that a nicer way to say it? Nugent just said it more succinctly. U should quit with the “moral” highroad crap and save yourself some credibility. No presidential candidate has EVER sealed all his college and passport records to cover up a self-declared “foreign student” status. And how DOES one obtain an Indonesian or British passport to travel to Pakistan in 1981 and still be a US citizen? These questions are not some ‘conspiracy theory’, they are facts. If they were not true, we would see the evidence to the contrary So, you and others on the left are really guilty of far more than Mr. Nugent’s name calling. And Mr. Gingrich is well behind Obama for the prize of “poster boy for the smarmy politician”.

It is sub-human because it is the complete denial of individual liberty. It is also sub-human to deny people equal representation.

    Right on, Chris. I don't care what ideology someone has, or whether they disapprove of the current Dem or GOP sitting in the White House, you surely are beyond a potty mouth, but racist and bigoted to make a statement like Nugent did. Yes, he has the right to do so, and that's important. However, I think most reasonable people, regardless of their party, would agree that this was not only classless, but unpatriotic. And for Republicans, do you really want this guy polarizing what people might already think about the GOP? The president will term out, and then if you run a moderate GOP candidate you might have a chance. But I know a lot of Republicans who won't vote republican with the current extremists in power. They would return, however, to a moderate GOP.

    Dink, thanks for the article. Metropolitan Water district serves 26 municipalities and nearly 19 million people. Long Beach (your article) has a population of about 1/2 million and according to your article is blessed with an aquifer that supplies 60%. My gut tells me that Long Beach is whistling in the dark. ~~~ LINK - After a bleak snowpack survey in late January, . . . ". . . the state Department of Water Resources issued a zero allocation to State Water Project contractors in 2014, including Metropolitan. If it remains dry and the allocation holds, it will be the first time in the SWP’s 54-year history the state will not allot water. While some cities and water agencies in Southern California have maintained local ordinances since the 2008-2010 drought, Metropolitan’s Water Supply Alert resolution encourages the remaining entities to institute or develop as soon as possible their own ordinances and restrictions.

    This is old new anyway, Ted in 2012 called the Obama administration “vile, evil and America-hating” and invited the president to suck on his machine gun. “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” SS loved it. But coming from a pedophille, meth-head, draft dodger , who runs canned hunts, and is a poacher who kills bear at bait sites, who cares what he says?

    Fever, yes, I've known for years. If the Reception Center Commander has been hard core he would have recognized the ploy and told the Sergeant Major to get a couple of NCOs to hose him down and then give him a steel brush shower. Then he could have been inducted and served the nation. With the admonition that if he did the dirty pants trick in basic training, there would be another Sergeant Major with a steel brush. Who knows, he might have gone on and become an authentic hero. Sadly, he did not.

I’d make an incredible army man. I’d be a colonel before you knew what hit you, and I’d have the baddest bunch of mother****in’ killers you’d ever seen in my platoon. But I just wasn’t into it.

    Even though this is a very short video it offers a trip back in time where Emperor obama lists a number of things hope and change were going to fix, which today, under his mindboggling leadership have never been worse. Of course, according to the left obama is a complete failure because of race. His ideology has nothing to do with it. Even though leftism has consistently produced the same results throughout history. The reason they play the race card so frequently is because none of them are dealing with a full deck. Just read some of their comments on here. Not two brain cells between them.

"President Nicolas Maduro blamed the international media for distorting the situation in the country and making it seem like it was on the verge of civil war. "You all," he told reporters at a news conference in Caracas on Friday evening, "with your broadcasts to the world, the international media have filled thousands of people with hate, desperation and fear, a dangerous mixture.""

The SUBHUMAN left will achieve the same results here in America under the guise of "social contract". In many areas they have already achieved utopia. Useful idiots, every last one of them.

    http://mariomurilloministries.wordpress.com/tag/mario-and-mechelle-murillo-anniversary/ Dear Friend, Today is our wedding anniversary and the day that marks the greatest miracle in the history of this Ministry. My angel Mechelle has come home! Sit with me as I tell you how it happened. 14 years ago, the perfect storm struck our marriage. I brought the stress of success home and took it out on my wife. The devil deluded us with false images of each other. People got between us and destroyed our communication. Though we were deeply in love, we could not swim to the surface. My hard line opened her up to a false prophet. He slowly gained control with “words from the Lord.” I saw how deeply I had failed Mechelle. The scales fell off Mechelle’s eyes. Months later, when I returned from an outreach and she was with Michael, I suggested for the first time that we go out to eat as a family. Our son slyly set a parent trap! At the last moment he said, “You two go out, I want to stay home.” We went out but we were like scared puppies afraid to open up our hearts. We began a courtship. It was just like when we first met. An eternal flame burns within us; our two hearts beat as one.

    EC, WIKI-"In a 1977 High Times article, Nugent stated that he took crystal meth and defecated in his pants in order to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War. [1] Nugent reaffirmed this in a 1990 interview with Detroit Free Press, stating that "...a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine." [2] In other interviews, Nugent has denied this claim, stating that he dodged the draft by enrolling at Oakland Community College to get a student deferment. However, his Selective Service classification record shows ratings of 1-Y and 4-F for 1969 and 1972 respectively, indicating ineligibility for military service under established physical, mental, or moral standards, rather than student deferment".

Because on both voting occasions, I thought the president was a better choice than the Republican candidates. McCain screamed for defeat when he chose Sarah as the possible president of the United States should he have died or become unable to serve. As for Mitt, a corporate shill -- enough said. But, Cookie, just continue to applaud Ted to completely shred your reputation as a reasonable person.

    Criticism of obama is supposed to be unheard of because of the protection wing of the leftists, their media. Now the standard granted to the left for criticism of anyone who disagrees with them is another story. Of course, we all no what the left was depending on to protect obama from criticism. It is the first, middle and last card they play. The desire for the beast to be finally granted her entitlement comes with the same symbolic protection.
