Some Holding On, Some Changing, Some “Modify” July 13, 2015 – Ripples still continue to affect the music world when it comes to the Confederate battle flag, and some bands and musicians have responded in a number of ways. Some have defended the use of the flag like Ted Nugent, Kid Rock and Nashville Pussy,…
Musician Tries to Defend His Use of Symbol of Hatred July 12, 2015 – White trash “musician” (and I use that term loosely) Ted Nugent has been attacked recently and rightly so for his use of the Confederate battle flag used on his albums, videos and stage performances. The has-been “rocker” was on the NRA Radio…
AUGUST 4 CASINO SHOW CANCELLED FOR HIS PAST RACIST REMARKS July 23, 2014 – The Coeur d’Alene people of Idaho had booked the has-been nut Ted Nugent for a show at their casino but realized they had made a mistake and axed the show. Once they had seen a few of his past rants on…
APR 28, 2014 – Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, posted this pic of their mobile banner from NRA convention in Indiana of Uncle Ted and the NRA helping us realize that the TRUE poor, picked-on minority is actually middle-class, Christian, white dudes with guns. If only, Ted…if only. CSGV aims to make people aware of the crazy shit that comes out of the mouths of the NRA supporters and to make them MeettheNRA.org and find out what they are really about.

FEB 24, 2013 – Gregg Abbott, the presumptive Republican nominee for Governor of Texas stumped with insane has-been rocker Ted Nugent, and even praised the rightwing mouthpiece that recently called President Obama a "mongrel".

July 18, 2013 – Old Uncle Ted Nugent has been really saying some pretty sick and twisted mind farts this week. You can see my blog from yesterday below me where I blogged about him saying some pretty racist and idiot shit and has even said some horrible things about Trayvon Martin in a July 14 Op Ed on Rare.com. (I know, I've never heard of them either, they are using this extremist rhetoric to get traffic to their site, and exploiting Trayvon's death) In that Op Ed Nugent claimed Trayvon was a "dope-smoking gangsta wannabe". First, Ted Nugent smoked dope and banged rock and roll groupies while other buddies his age were getting shot at in Vietnam, and he has probably smoked pot his whole life. So for him to criticize someone for "dope smoking" is like Honey Boo Boo criticizing someone for eating a Twinkie.
For the next installment of Ted Nugent Is Insane series, he has written another Op Ed for the website "Rare", where their motto is "Red Is the Center", so they sound fair and balanced also, NOT. Anyways, Old Uncle Ted has done it again, this time he says that George Zimmerman ought to sue the parents of Trayvon Martin for…wait for it…emotional suffering. Yep, you heard it right. Ted thinks that since poor George couldn't just shoot Trayvon and walk away an hour later with no charges, which almost happened, that he should be able to sue.
Ted Says that George Zimmerman will not be "free" for the rest of his life, because "racist goons" will be stalking him. Wait…Gerorge Zimmerman is not the racist? Did I miss something here? Wasn't George the one who profiled, and slowed down and got out of a car because he saw a black kid? Hellooo?? Anyways, he goes on to say that Trayvon "brought on his own demise". How Ted? By trying to defend himself from the gun-toting, stalking, George Zimmerman? The cop-wannabe sociopath? Incredibly, Ted advises George Zimmerman to use the fact that Trayvon was a minor at the time, that legally his parents are responsible, so GZ should sue Trayvon's parents for the "18 months of untold emotional hell, pain, distress, anguish, fatigue, nightmares and financial ruin". So that is Ted's advice to George Zimmerman. Sue the mourning parents whose son was treated horribly by the Sanford police department and the Florida justice system. Ted, you are not a "simple Motor City guitar player". You are either insane, racist as hell, or both. You are a pathetic sight. Read Ted's latest insane rant on the website Rare here.

July 16, 2013 – Can Ted Nugent get any more racist? It turns out he can. Nugent ranted recently that Trayvon Martin was a "dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe", and "enraged black man-child" and a "skittles hoodie boy". Now, according to the insane and racist mind of Ted Nugent, all black men are constantly breaking the law and are making bad choices; everyone of them. Also, ALL of their problems they face are self-inflicted. Yes, Media Matters reported that while on the Alex Jones radio show, Nugent claims African-Americans could fix their problems by "being honest, law-abiding [and] delivering excellence at every move in your life." Nugent added that supposedly there are "black mobs across America that are guilty of the worst racism since the Klan." Are you frickin" kidding me? Did he just say that?! Then, he stunningly says African-Americans have bought into a "lie that somehow they're oppressed…" Yes, according to Nugent, the horrible racism and prejudice blacks face everyday in America is all just a fantasy in their head. Unfrickinbelieveable.
Nugent then ranted again about Trayvon Martin saying that Trayvon was a "dope-smoking, gangsta wannabe, involved with illegal drugs, and illegal guns and illegal people", and added that Martin was "emboldened by a Black Panther president" to attack Zimmerman.

MAY 1, 2013 – Just when you think Ted Nugent can't sink any lower, more insane garbage pours from his sick mind and he sinks to a new low. This time, he comments on the horrible tragedy of our soldier suicide epidemic, and blames it on…wait for it…wait for it…President Barack Obama. Raw Story has a great article out on his insane mind-fart ramblings on the "The Alex Jones Show" where Nugent said, “But I’ll tell you why more and more warrior heroes of the military are killing themselves: because they are in absolute frustration and heartbreak that their boss, their commander in chief violates the Constitution that he has made an oath to, while their hero warrior blood brothers are being blown to smithereens and blown up while executing their oath to the same Constitution that the president, the vice president and the attorney general violate.” Read the whole article by Stephen C. Webster on RawStory.com here.
MAR 12, 2013 – Ted Nugent, in an interview on XM 166 speaking to Brett Winterble, bragged that he killed 455 wild hogs "for the environment" last week in Texas, claiming the hogs "destroy all the nesting birds, they destroy all the turkey eggs and all the quail eggs."

FEB 19, 2013 – Ever since the SOTU, Ted Nugent has been Tweeting about his experience. He started with Tweeting, "the prez is a master scam artist didnt believe a word" and supposedly "made all the corrupt liars squirm"; apparently unable to figure out how to use the shift and alt keys on his smartphone.
Then he attacked Luke Russell for pointing out to him his words are insane, and Tweeted about the gay, liberal, musical-activist Thomas Lauderdale of Pink Martini Nugent sat next during the SOTU address, saying he wants to play music with him, "Let's jam!"; don't hold your breath for that concert. Lastly, Nugent attacked SNL for showing how crazy he was; watch the SNL skit video below.
