Appearing on a Denver radio show Monday morning, musician Ted Nugent lamented the state of the Republican Party, stating “Someone extracted their scrotum with a rusty shiv.”
According to The Big Media blog, Nugent participated in a rambling discussion with Peter Boyles on radio station KNUS, in which he stated that the U.S. media is “…basically Joseph Goebbels’ propaganda ministry” before singing his “New American National Anthem,” which consisted only of the cry of a sheep: “baa-aa—aa—aa, baa-aa-aa.”
Nugent added, “It breaks my heart to have to say these things, but we have to say these things. Because if you don’t get rid of the bad and the ugly, the good will continue to be strangled.”
Asked by Boyles “what has happened to the Republican Party?” Nugent replied, “Someone extracted their scrotum with a rusty shiv,” He then added, “They have no balls. I don’t know where this ‘Let’s be Mr. Rogers with a Lawrence Welk soundtrack tie adjusting’ mantra came from, but my god! If there’s a life-support system attached to the GOP, it’s flat-lining.”
Later in the interview, in reference to Colorado’s newly passed gun laws, Nugent told the Denver radio host that he was “lucky” to live in Texas which is “not be confused with Colorado, [which is] the suburb of San Francisco.”
Nugent was most recently in the news when he called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel” deserving of “just due punishment” for treason.
