Ted “are you American enough to fight the vampire wolves” Nugent is back with a new op-ed on WhirledNutDaily, this time leading the charge against the “America-hating” Wendy Davis.
In the op-ed, published on October 29, Nugent attacked “lying, scamming, America-hating, Texas-hating scammers and scoundrels that infest and steer the Wendy Davis campaign of deception.” He continues to knock the scamming scammers (the first rule of tautology club is the first rule of tautology club, Ted), noting that “I already got my invitation to Greg Abbott’s victory party for the evening of Nov. 4 as we celebrate his landslide victory over Wendy Davis as the new and well-deserved governor of the Great Republic of Texas.”
The victory party is open to the public, by the way.
Nugent stepped in it when he appeared at a campaign event for Republican candidate Greg Abbott, calling him a “blood brother.” Abbott took heat because his “blood brother,” borrowing language from the NSDAP playbook, had referred to President Obama as a “subhuman mongrel” and has a history of sexist attacks on women. When Davis rightly pointed out Abbot defending Nugent is an insult to all Texas, Abbott rushed to insult all of Texas, noting that Nugent was, in his words:
A forceful advocate for individual liberty and constitutional rights.
Yep, the man’s a regular Constitutional scholar. One thing that I notice about right wingers is that they treat the Constitution like they treat the Bible: they’ve never read it, but it exists in their head as an imaginary document that has no other purpose than proving them right.
As the situation came to a head, Abbott released a statement noting that it was time to “move on” and that “I believe Ted Nugent recognized his language was wrong and he rightly apologized.” Nugent offered something that resembles an apology, in the same way that the color red resembles the number three, attacking Obama as a lying, law-breaking racist who engaged in Nazi tactics in the process.
Nugent attacked Davis days later, claiming that her “agenda” was “anti-American” and calling her a “puppet” of “scam artist” Obama while on conservative Dana Loesch’s radio show. Abbott eventually resorted to telling reporters he had “no plans” to campaign with Nugent any further.
He noted in his column that “we the sheeple” are “brainwashed” into “believing that earning your own way was for suckers, that if someone had some nice things, surely they were cheating and they owed you.”
I’ve got nothing against earning your own way and having nice things. I’ve got a problem with forcing people to earn the basics just to survive — food, water, shelter, clothing — because no matter how many big words you use to pretty it up,when your two alternatives are “work” or “die,” the system is not voluntary, and you are a slave. Pittance doesn’t change that truth.
