The Duck Dynasty “rednecks” may have been shown to be a manufactured symbol of good ol’ boy patriotism, but Ted Nugent is the real thing. The ‘Nuge has been actively commenting on the political process since long before George W. Bush made uneducated bigotry cool again. The same redneckisational force that puts fake hillbilly beards in the toy section at Walmart is keeping Nugent in the news as if he’s a serious political analyst.
Guns.com recently interviewed Nugent at a, wait for it, gun show, and the way he introduces himself really sets the stage for his cartoonishly exagerated patriotism that the right loves so much.
“My name is Ted Nugent, full time. I’m addicted to freedom. I’m the American Dream.”
For the purposes of contrast, here’s how Urban Dictionary defines Nugent:
General retard at life. Expresses hate towards pigeons and ethnicities other than Caucasian. Often heard talking bullshit that no one wants to hear.
Ted Nugent hates hippies and loves god. He rants for a while about Bambi-lovers demonizing him for being a hunter, equating them all with drug-addled hippies. He boasts about being sober and seems to equate liberal thoughts with brain-altering chemicals. It’s safe to assume Nugent isn’t happy with the marijuana legalization movement.
What Nugent really hates, though... Hates so much he can barely conceal his racism... Hates so much he can’t be bothered to look up the meanings of the words used to convey his hatred, is President Obama.
“I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States.”
He goes on to accuse every liberal Democrat (as if we had any) of treason before seizing one last opportunity to call Obama a chimpanzee. Why is this man still invited into serious political debate in this country? Oh wait, that’s right. We don’t have any serious political debate in this country.
