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.
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?
