"I like Ted Nugent. He’s a friend of mine.” - Sean HannityMitt Romney-supporting, Bow-Hunting, Tough-Talking Ted Nugent has been an staunch out-spoken representative of Conservatism for decades. And has been the go-to musical counterpoint for Faux News and Sean Hannity to combat Liberal Hollywood, "He's a rock star. Yes, here's my point. If you don't like it, don't go to the concert, don't buy his new albums." - Sean Hannity.
Nugent got into trouble by saying he wanted to ride into combat and behead Democrats and that after the 2012 Presidential election either he would be dead or in jail when President Obama wins re-election. Ted has been saying stupid, evil, terrorist shit for years, "Obama's a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun," and Faux News continues to proudly sponsor him.
But, even though Ted Nugent talks tough when his time came for Real Combat Nugent quite literally shit himself to dodge military service. As Ted himself recounted in 1977,
"30 days before his Draft Board Physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days he ingested nothing but junk food and Pepsi, and a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment."Nowadays Ted, of course, denies this every happened, it doesn't fit with the bullshit image he wants to have about himself and claimed he only received student deferments for enrolling in Oakland Community College. Although, Ted did admit he "didn't want to get his ass blown off in Vietnam."
But, even worse than being a typical cowardly chicken hawk Right-Winger, Nugent bragged in 1998 about having sex with underage girls during his caveman heyday in the 1970's. Courtney Love stated she and Nugent had sex when she was 12 years old.
Ted Nugent epitomizes everything the Modern Conservative is today. But, all the overblown bravado and he-man talk covers a more insidious motive, one has been highlighted by my friend Ran on numerous occasions, Stochastic Terrorism. Nugent is coward but, his and other conservatives violent rhetoric masks an agenda of planting the seeds of terrorism in the minds of the duped and warped right-wingers, like Jared Loughner or "Progressive Hunter" Byron Williams, and triggering their violent conservative terrorist attacks.
The Secret Service is done with Ted Nugent but, Nugent isn't done instigating and fanning the flames of Right-Wing Extremism. Thus, I can think of no better end for Ted than when he suck-starts a pistol after we re-elect President Obama.
