Ted Nugent: American Traitor, Misogynist & Romney surrogate


Romney surrogate Ted Nugent hates America

I’ve written about Ted Nugent before (“Ted Nugent: This is what happens when an idiot-clown gets the megaphone“) partly because he’s from Michigan and used to live near my hometown of Jackson.

Ted Nugent is an American traitor.

This week at the National Rifle Association (NRA) convention, Nugent said “our government is wiping its ass with the Constitution”, that four Supreme Court justices “don’t believe in the Constitution”, called our government “vile, evil, [and] America-hating “, and said President Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, Attorney General Eric Holder and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton are all “criminals”. (Video and transcript below.)

He also compared President Obama to a coyote that should be shot.

Ted Nugent is no patriot. Ted Nugent is an American Traitor.

This is the “man” that Mitt Romney recruited to support his campaign. Since he was actively recruited, he is, by definition, a Romney surrogate.

He’s also the “man” that appears to have a bit of a pedophilia problem:

Romney’s Ted Nugent problem is about to get a whole lot worse if the mainstream media ever decides to report that Mittens has not rebuked a self-admitted pedophile. In a 1998 episode of VH1’s Behind The Music, Ted Nugent admitted to being a serial pedophile. VH1 politely phrased this as, “his weakness for young women.”

This, of course, comes as no surprise to anyone who has paid any attention at all to Nugent’s life. Here’s a fun one:

In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa’s parents in signing documents to make himself her legal guardian, an arrangement that Spin magazine ranked in October 2000 as #63 on their list of the “100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock”.

Rocker Courtney Love claims she gave Nugent a blowjob when she was 12 years old.

Maybe Courtney Love inspired the song “Jailbait”:

Well, I don´t care if you´re just thirteen,
You look too good to be true.
I just know that you´re probably clean,
There´s one little thing I got do to you.

Jailbait you look so good to me,
Jailbait won´t you set me free,
Jailbait you look fine, fine, fine
And I know I´ve got to have you in a matter of time.

Honey, you, you, you look so nice.
She´s young, she´s tender
Won´t you please surrender.
She so fine, she´s mine,
All the time, I woke my mind.

It´s all right baby, it´s quite all right I asked your mama.

Wait a minute officer; wait a minute officer
Don´t put those handcuffs on me, what about her?
Hey, I´ll share her with you!

Nugent’s anti-woman misogyny is no secret, either. Here’s the cover of the prerelease version of his album Love Grenade:

Again, Mitt Romney sought out Nugent for his endorsement. And after his outrageous, violent and anti-American remarks, had only this to say:

Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.

Ouch. That’s sure to leave a mark.

Congratulations, Mitt. You just handed the Democrats a gift.

Here’s the video and transcript of some of his remarks at the NRA convention this week:

If you can’t get a coupla hundred people each, each of you, some of you, I bet you could get a couple thousand, your goal should be to get a couple of thousand people, per person who’s here, to vote for Mitt Romney in November. If you don’t know that our government is wiping its ass with the Constitution, you’re livin’ under a rock some place. And that there’s a dead soldier, an airman, a Marine, a seaman, a hero of the military that just got his legs blown off for the U.S. Constitution, and we got a President and an Attorney General who doesn’t even like the Constitution.

We got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody know here that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined that you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental rights to self-defense. That sounds like a stoned hippy! That doesn’t sound like a Supreme Court anything. It sounds like a supremely intellectually vacuous punk.

To think that a human could think that humans don’t have a basic right to self-defense is so bizarre to me as to my brain can’t accept the information. And if you want more of those kinds of evil, anti-American people in the Supreme Court then don’t get involved and let Obama take office again. Because I’ll tell you this right now, if Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.

Bein’ at the NRA event, God bless ya, is a good indicator. But if you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know whatchyer made of. If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done. We’ll be a suburb of Indonesia next year.

Our president, our Attorney General, our Vice President, Hilary Clinton — they’re criminals. They’re criminals. And if you take that adamant “We the People” defiance — remember, we’re Americans because we defy the king. We didn’t negotiate and compromise with the king. We defied the emperors. We are patriots. We are bravehearts. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November! Am I, any questions?

  • And yet, when Mr. Tough-Talk Underage Booty Fancier had the chance to  “ride into battle” himself in Vietnam, he, like Dickless Cheney, found he had “other priorities.” I don’t judge anybody for doing what they  had to do to avoid that war — as long as they weren’t on the sidelines cheering for other people to die in pointless conflicts.

      I’ve known a lot of people who always want to saber rattle and advocate overthrowing some government in between them chugging another beer and rubbing their guts, and all of them have one thing in common; they’re chicken-hawks.

    • CB_Demented

       According to his records, he had a physical deferment. They may not have wanted him.

    17 is stretching the definition of pedophile a bit, and I’d believe Courtney Love if I thought for a minute she could remember even a third of the men she’s blown in the last decade, let alone when she was underage.

    He’s a blowhard, and nearly completely full of shit about many things, but he’s no more of a traitor than Jeremiah Wright is, or any of the other blowhards who use their constitutional right to make an ass out of themselves in public.

    I certainly think the Romney camp should rethink their silence on his support, but then again, I didn’t hear Obama rebuking some of the more unsavory individuals that support him either.

    •  Well, he dropped Wright and at Hillary’s insistence at a debate, he “denounced and rejected” Farrakhan — the latter of whom he never sought an endorsement from, unlike Romney going after Nugent full-tilt. (Romney’s son tweeted that it was so “cool” to have the Nuge on board, remember?)

      The equivalence here is not unlike the righties who scream that Bill Maher says things as awful as Limbaugh. Well, yes — Maher  makes misogynist comments (I think he’s a jerkwad). Maher has never devoted a week’s worth of programming to calling one woman (and one who was NOT a politician, by the way) a slut, a round-heelsl, someone who was having so much sex she couldn’t walk, etc. Maher also is NOT considered a  minister-without-portfolio to the Democratic Party the way that Limbaugh (he of the CPAC appearances) is for the GOP.

      And if the GOP truly thinks that 17 is an age of consent, no big deal, then they should drop their insistence on parental notification laws for abortion, let alone their desire to force Planned Parenthood to hand over records for girls who seek their services on the pretext that they’re only asking for that info so they can go after pedophiles and statutory rapists.

      • CB_Demented

         Maher and Limbaugh both say disrespectful comments, and Limbaugh may in fact be a misogynist, but Maher certainly isn’t. Both of them have every right to say whatever the hell they want without comment from anyone in the government, and in fact I agree with Maher in his statement about Limbaugh. The fact that people like to hold either entertainer, and that’s what they both are, up as de facto spokesmen for a political party is disingenuous bullshit. They’re entertainers…they’re private individuals and not a member of any government post, and what they do is precisely what the free speech portion of the 1st amendment is all about. If you don’t like what they have to say, don’t tune in. You also have that right.

        The same is true for Ted Nugent. He’s a bombastic, over the top, loud mouthed rock and roll personality, who also happens to be very political. He’s an entertainer. If you don’t like what he has to say, tune him out, or speak out against him.

        Anyone who thinks he was seriously calling for harm to come to the President, or any member of government, is being willfully ignorant.

        As to the age of consent, the GOP has little to do with it. The federal age of consent  is 16, with conditions and varies by state. Hawaii’s age of consent is 16 as it is for 30 other states. 9 states have an age of consent of 17, and 11 set it at 18.

        Now that doesn’t mean there aren’t conditions as how old you can be and be with that 16 year old in Hawaii, for example, where almost every state has a restriction on how old the other person can be, usually no older than 20.

        But the fact remains that it isn’t just the GOP that thinks the age of consent is 17…the federal government and 39 of the 50 states, and Washington DC, also think so… including most of the bluest of blue states except for California and Oregon.

        Furthermore, the idea that he’s a “serial pedophile” is an opinion put forth by someone who reviewed the Behind the Music episode, and doesn’t provide a transcript.

        •  You conveniently skipped over the part about Limbaugh being INVITED to speak at CPAC, which is an arm of the GOP. I’m not holding him up as a “de facto spokesperson” — the GOP is.

          As for Maher not being a misogynist — his use of the c-word to publicly describe Sarah Palin (a woman for whom I have no use) shows otherwise.

          • CB_Demented

            The rapper Common was invited to the Whitehouse…which is as close to the President as you get…does that make him a member of the campaign? Or just a celebrity that got invited to meet the president?

            And just because you’re disrespectful to an individual, doesn’t mean you hate all individuals. Maher doesn’t like Palin. He doesn’t like several other women. That doesn’t mean he hates women. 

        • Ff

          Did Obama call Maher to seek his endorsement? Did Romney call Nugent to seek his endorsement?

    • Rohlkm45

      The last paragraph in the transcript clearly shows him advocating for the violent overthrow of the US government, ala the French Revolution. This is a form of speech that has been roundly declared by many incarnations of the SCOTUS to not be protected by the first amendment. Also, should any individual act upon said statement, the Department of Justice would have a strong case against Mr. Nugent for inciting treason.

      That being said, I agree that in the grand scheme of things Mr. Nugent is nothing more than an adled, old blowhard and calling him a traitor is fairly hyperbolic.

      Crazy…maybe, but traitor? Not really. Not yet, anyway.

    • Hobbes83

      The last paragraph is a flat-out lie and you know it.  In addition, I don’t care how many blowjobs Courtney Love gives out, if you get you get a hummer from a 12 year-old, you are a pedophile, full stop.  Stop trying to muddy the water to make it look like both sides do it when that is simply not the case.

      • CB_Demented

         If Courtney Love said the sky was blue, I’d go outside and check it first, and if she can remember much of anything beyond last week, I’d be highly amazed. If you want to hold out a lifetime addict as a character reference, it’s not going to hold much water with me.

        The point is, this is a private individual who’s no more than a celebrity who has notoriety for being an entertainer. He doesn’t speak for any political party any more than any other entertainer does. Calling him a surrogate for Romney for stumping for him is just a load of crap. Romney has no more to do with him than Obama does with Spike Lee, an outspoken supporter, giving out what he thought was Zimmerman’s address on Twitter so someone could collect the price on his head placed there by the New Black Panthers, which Obama and the Justice department hasn’t bothered to denounce or investigate either.

        If every candidate was responsible for every dickehad who gets on the air, says something bombastic, stupid or mean spirited, or has some sort of an objectionable past, then we’d never find anyone to elect.

        • Hobbes83

          It’s funny that you wasted all this time typing this tripe when in another thread you were complaining about how the media didn’t vet certain people who had a tenuous connection(at best) with the Obama campaign in 08′. You can’t have your cake and eat it too. Physician, heal thyself.

          • CB_Demented

             There’s not even a tenuous connection between Nugent and any campaign, and he’s not a member of the media…he’s a rock star.

          • Hobbes83

            Now you’re just flat out lying; Romney touted his endorsement a few days ago and Tagg Romney, Mitt Romney’s son, ecstically pointed the endorsement out on his Twitter feed.

    • Airlines

      Plus, just look at those songs lyrics, and think of the Conservative outrage blizzard if any one of a dozen rappers or Metal bands had sung about the hotness of a 13-year-old and how he would “have” her if he could. 

  • He’s a disgrace to our state…

  • He uses the word “idiot” when he can’t think of another word.  (Happens often with Neanderthals like him.)  So, okay, I’ll say it:  It takes one to know one.
