Ted Nugent apologizes "for using the streetfighter terminology of 'subhuman mongrel'..."

"... instead of just using more understandable language, such as 'violator of his own- the Constitution.'"

"Mongrel," like "bitch," refers to dog. It's totally inaccurate to call a human a mongrel, just like it's way off base to ever call a woman a bitch.

Scott said...

(Barbara Bush's evaluation of Hillary Clinton notwithstanding.)

phx said...

Good luck in 2016, Republicans. You'll never take care of these problems by then.

Scott said...

Huh?

madAsHell said...

Michelle Obama is calling for all the "knucklehead" 20-somethings to sign up for Obama care.

Yeah, that will work.

Inga said...

"Michelle Obama is calling for all the "knucklehead" 20-somethings to sign up for Obama care."

Yeah, because knuckle head is every bit as vile as sub human mongrel.

Chef Mojo said...

Nuge rocks! I really love how he turned the "apology" into another blast at Obama. He gets the attention, and then he gets the platform. People listen to him because he's a icon of popular culture, and he let's it loose. Notice he doesn't actually apologize to anyone, except perhaps the people being tarred by association, which is the new leftist blood sport. Can't defeat 'em on policy and argument, slander them by association!

Besides, this is Texas. They love this shit there.

Do you really think he gives a crap what the lefty press thinks of him? About as much as the Robertsons do, I'd imagine.

Gahrie said...

OK..so what are we allowed to call:

A) women

B) Democratic presidents?

Tank said...

Which is worse?

Subhuman mongrel

or

Bushhitler?

or

Sarah Palin is not a real woman?

Damn, this is tough.

Stupid too.

The pussification of America rolls relentlessly on.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

How about Hillary complaining about all those whining women who weren't willing to take a sexual assault for the team?

Chef Mojo said...

Yeah, because Uncle Tom is every bit as vile as sub human mongrel.

FIFY, Inga.

Try and keep your eye on the ball.

Bob Ellison said...

I grant absolution to Ted Nugent. He is the spokesperson for all rightists, who hold formerly famous rock singers in high regard as foundations of our movement.

Since I am the high priest, I grant absolution. Go forth, Ted Nugent, and sin no more.

phx said...

By all means, if you are one of the GOP rank and file, follow your heart. Call them what you would like to call them, what you are longing to. Give free license to your creative engergies.

The Democrat candidates thank you.

Scott said...

Freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose. And when you have no honor to defend, you can say anything you damn well want. That's an enviable position to be in.

Freder Frederson said...

People listen to him because he's a icon of popular culture

This statement might have been true in 1978. Unfortunately for you and Nugent, it is 2014.

Bob Ellison said...

I also grant absolution to Freder Frederson. Taste in music is a difficult thing. Go forth, and sin no more.

Bob Ellison said...

Sorry; Freder; should have granted to Chef Mojo. No hellish feelings, I hope. It's a difficult job up here.

Fen said...

Didn't he say these things like 3-5 years ago? Where was the media then?

Its only b/c he's supporting a republican today that has them interested.

Phonies.

Chef Mojo said...

Fredor, you obviously don't get out much.

If Nuge isn't still relevant, why is Althouse posting about him, and why are you bothering to discuss the issue? The media is sure treating him like a popular culture icon!

He is, indeed, an icon of popular culture. Not yours, albeit, but that's a typical lefty conceit; that popular culture is for lefties to define. That's not true anymore.

AReasonableMan said...

Sullivan gets to the heart of this particular matter. Why is it so hard for Republicans to separate themselves from this lunatic? The guy plays black music, badly, and then, having made a living as a minstrel, pisses on the very people who gave him a comfortable living.

Bob Ellison said...

Now we're morphing the thread from SomeRightistSaidSomethingBad to IsThatGuyReallyAnIcon.

I need analysis from Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber.

Bob Ellison said...

Also, Beyonce, just for balance.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

I'm waiting for Obama to condemn and demand an apology from Rihanna. And while we are at it. I want to hear from Pelosi and Reid.

You stupid fuck!

AReasonableMan,

"Why is it so hard for Republicans to separate themselves from this lunatic? The guy plays black music, badly, and then, having made a living as a minstrel, pisses on the very people who gave him a comfortable living."

"Why is it this American white guy can be admired for spitting all these words forever, and never fucking up, but a conservative politician can't open his mouth without saying something racist?”

Chef Mojo said...

@ARM:

Sullivan, whose taste in music ossified with The Pet Shop Boys, WHAM! and Madonna, is hardly in a position to criticize Ted Nugent and American Rock n Roll.

What Sullivan says about Nugent and exploitation can be said of every white garage band that ever plugged into a stack. So, really, it's pretty meaningless what he has to say.

I'm not surprised you latched on to it like a lamprey.

Chef Mojo said...

Merriam Webster, Full Definition of MONGREL

Priceless!

Belongs right up there with:

Bob Ellison said...

Comprehension still a problem for you? I didn't say he couldn't play black music I simply wondered why he lacks any humility in his approach to the original talents who created the music he plunders for a living.

Inga said...

"So, now we have a ranking of insults. Knucklehead is less demeaning than sub-human mongrel."

2/21/14, 1:01 PM

Mad dog, if you truly do not see any difference in "knuckle head" and "sub human mongrel", you have a huge problem. One of the big mistakes people do on both sides of the aisle do, is make false equivalencies. .

Bob Ellison said...

AReasonableMan, you are not being reasonable. You probably know the meaning and import of your words. If not, stop typing now. Back away from the keyboard. You might try changing your screen name, too.

Bob Ellison said...

I'm not taunting you, AReasonableMan, just for InterWeb fun. I'm taunting you because you're either a jerk or a great troll. I've got time on my hands. Let's keep it up!

2/21/14, 1:11 PM

Why are some here focusing on the insult, "mongrel", while totally not mentioning the "sub human" part? Really, you folks don't see anything wrong with this type of rhetoric?

Revenant said...

You know, I don't even want to get into the whole argument over whether Nugent was wrong to say that.

I just wanted to express my consternation at the people claiming Ted Nugent "rocks". Off to rock and roll rehabilitation camp with the lot of ya.

AReasonableMan said...

Ted Nugent - 'Say it loud: my music is black and I'm proud!'


To be fair to black people, no black person would actually produce a childishly derivative minstrel show like Uncle Ted's.

Chef Mojo said...

I didn't say he couldn't play black music I simply wondered why he lacks any humility in his approach to the original talents who created the music he plunders for a living.

Oh, this is good!

"Humility?" He's a fucking ROCK N ROLL STAR!

Which "original talents?" Please go there.

And just how does he "plunder" it for a living.

phx said...

I haven't heard anything of his since Cat Scratch Fever which was pretty dismal for my tastes.

He's certainly a much better Democrat operative than he is a rock 'n' roller.

The Crack Emcee said...

Chef Mojo,

I'm sure Crack will enlighten us presently.

Because racism.


Since I know you guys are only about red meat today (you're like sharks circling) I'll only point out the Nuge has only two songs of note - Cat Scratch Fever and Stranglehold - so the idea he was ever important to anyone or anything but to whites using him as a cultural crutch is ridiculous. He sucks. He's always sucked. And he always will suck.

Bob Ellison said...

Inga, Chimpy McBusHitler.

Goodness gracious, it seems like a 24/7 job telling you lefties what racist jerks you are.

Shanna said...

The guy plays black music, badly

Bah! Ted Nugent is a bit of a nutjob but Strangelhold is a national treasure. And according to wiki, includes the 31st greatest guitar solo of all time.

Inga said...

Bob, it was wrong for lefties to use such language to describe Bush, why does it make it any less wrong for rightists to use even worse language to describe Obama?

RecChief said...

Scott you need to google "racial mongrelization" if you don't understand how racist that statement was.

sorry, don't see how Ted can be defended on this one.

Lots of things that Ted could have called Obama without injecting that.

On the other hand, no matter what Ted said, the left would have claimed racism. Still doesn't excuse it.

Bob Ellison said...

Inga, are you unaware of the difference in amplitude?

phx said...

Goodness gracious, it seems like a 24/7 job telling you lefties what racist jerks you are.

Which is worse?
Subhuman mongrel
or
Bushhitler?
or
Sarah Palin is not a real woman?


Yeah, because Uncle Tom is every bit as vile as sub human mongrel.

Let's see...which of these stories is at the top of CNN today? Hmmmm...

AReasonableMan said...

No heterosexual man would defend Sullivan's taste in music, but you clearly didn't read the link, since this comment is irrelevant to his actual criticisms of Ted the man.

Monkeyboy said...

Can I still buy "Sarah Palin is a C**t" T-Shirts?

I can't google that because, you know, NSA and all.

Inga said...

The difference between leftists and rightists and over the top insults of the POTUS is that no lefty ever invited anyone who engaged in such insults to be their guests at the SOTU.

Rep. Steve Stockman, a political genius, no doubt pandering to the good people of Texas.

Revenant said...

Well, this heterosexual man is a big fan of the Pet Shop Boys and the other eleventy-zillion "gay British dudes with keyboards" bands of the late 80s and early 90s.

If liking "Opportunities" is wrong, I don't want to be right.

RecChief said...

write this down, it might be the only time I ever agree with Inga. It's the "sub-human" part, coupled with "mongrel". I don't think that can be defended.

Revenant said...

Cindy Sheehan was invited to attend the 2006 SotU address by a Democratic Congresswoman, to give just one example.

Tank said...

Name calling.

The new worst thing ever.

The perfect excuse for a two minute hate.

Shall we all be neverending whining, crying titty babies like Crack? Really?

RecChief said...

Inga said...

Tank the name calling is a only a symptom of a much greater real "big" problem we have in this country. Trying to minimize it's seriousness is telling.

Chef Mojo said...

Crack,

Your're assuming I'm a fan of the Nuge, musically. I'm not. Never have been. Could care less about his music and his influence is pretty minuscule. I wouldn't say he sucks, per se. He's just like a lot of guys coming out of Detroit back in the day with some songs and the balls to get on stage and perform them. Live their dream, y'know.

But that's not the point. Nuge has a relevancy now mostly to a huge fan base of 2nd Amendment and hunting advocates. This is on top of what is a rather large, and possibly misguided, musical fan base. Whether or not he's relevant as a musician has long ceased to be an issue. What he is now is a top class hunter with both bow and firearms who advocates putting what he would refer to as nature's bounty on the dinner table. He's remade himself as a rebellious outdoorsman, which is a quintessential American icon. He's living that life. People are drawn to that. They're also drawn to his no-bullshit presentation of his opinions. Some are even drawn to the music. He continues to tour live with regularity. People still come out to seen his shows, buy his music and have a good time. Not bad for a crappy Rock n Roller. Crack, you should be doing that well, eh?

This is where he stands a cultural icon now, and that's a real big thing in Texas, and throughout the West and Midwest, where that iconology is still valued and admired.

I am much more concerned with what the government is doing to try to chill free speech (FCC/IRS/etc) than what an aging, probably did way too many drugs rocker type says...but he was definately out of line. But, as I said, he's a nutjob and he's been that way for a while so I don't know why anyone would be surprised.

Chef Mojo said...

Inga, get real.

Louis Farrakhan had a lock on the term "sub-human" years ago in describing whites as a race.

And he really meant it in the way you only think Nugent meant it.

But good luck with that line of attack. I do think it's been tried before and found wanting, but try it again.

No.

Chef Mojo,

"People still come out to seen his shows, buy his music and have a good time. Not bad for a crappy Rock n Roller. Crack, you should be doing that well, eh?"

No, actually, that's one of the things I hate about the music world today - that's really the only option. No more Sid Barrett's, twiddling in their bedrooms, never to be seen. No more Steely Dan's, releasing albums without touring, allowing them to explore superior recording techniques and musical avenues. No more having to write good songs, even, when a novelty cut will go viral quicker.

People here have been teasing me about the state of my career, but I know they can't comprehend what's happened or where I fit in it. Or why I'm reluctant to re-enter it without financial backing that allows me control. I'm great onstage - can really hold a crowd - but I know what that's about, especially if you're good, and it's crushing WORK.

Not an endeavor to be rushed into or undertaken lightly - my talent ain't going away.

I can wait for the right opportunity,...

Notice CNN didn't dispute Nugent's characterization of Obama as a red-diaper communist who violates his oath to the constitution.

That's where a lot of people, not just Dems, get their news, Rev. You must want to argue that this story is not important and no one's talking about it. Don't think so.

From Inwood said...

I'm confused about insults:

How about Joe Biden (who was at the SOTU, Inga):

"I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy. I mean, that's a storybook, man."

OK, on either a niceness or a déclassé scale of One to Ten, "subhuman mongrel" is up there, & on a "this will get a Republican (but not a Dem) in real political trouble" scale, it rates a Ten. But all those slurs on GOP Women & Blacks are pretty shabby also & somehow ignored by our Betters.

As several have noted, apparently one gets a pass for calling Sarah Palin a -unt.

PPS: Do we need an animal rights person here to defend mongrels?

Bob Ellison said...

Why do lefties keep coming here? I really wonder. They keep getting plastered, but I think they don't think that's happening. I think they think they're winning like Charlie Sheen.

The Professor keeps up a facade of friendliness toward lefties. That might help.

Anyway, keep coming! You weirdos are like fish in a barrel.

Bill, Republic of Texas said...

I agree with phx. This is the waters the republicans swim in.

I also agree with Rand Paul. Everytime someone raises these phony issues, the repub should pushback and remind everyone of past instances of democrats being hypocrites. Then the media will tire of the game.

As I recall it, it irritated Althouse on several occasions when her blog was referred to as a "conservative" blog by certain journalists.

I was probably one of those. I thought Romney would win. It seemed impossible to me that Obama, with his terrible record, could win again. I'm still trying to understand that, and for the most part, I think it was a failure of imagination on my part.

But 11/8/12 was not a victory. It was a failure. You lefties have to answer for it. Please tell me the answer.

Ted Nugent is a very vocal anti-drug advocate. I believe he has always been so. And I've never anyone dispute his clean reputation.

But what he said was vile. I've never been a big fan of his ( or anyone else really ) and don't like the Republican politicians who think they need their own celebrity endorsements to compete with the Democrats.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matthew Sablan,

Why must that always be the question? I'm a Republican and I want to know why it always comes down to a counter-challenge, rather than a simple admission of guilt?

The Right is currently losing - badly - try new strategies because the old ones ain't working.

The Crack Emcee said...

RecChief said...

They held slaves and kept the black origins of hockey a secret, so yeah, I agree.

Shanna said...

Ted Nugent is a very vocal anti-drug advocate.

Is he indeed? Was he in the 70's?

That was just my impression from his way of speaking, I guess. And also the fact that he played rock in the 70's. I have not exactly read any bio's so I will defer to you on this point.

phx said...

I was probably one of those. I thought Romney would win. It seemed impossible to me that Obama, with his terrible record, could win again. I'm still trying to understand that, and for the most part, I think it was a failure of imagination on my part.

Sure, sure, I understand that! That's good evidence of valuable introspective soul searching.

Now add just a dash of humility before squeezing off one of those "They're getting plastered but I think they don't think that" comments and my respect and affection will know no bounds.

Matthew Sablan said...

"I'm a Republican and I want to know why it always comes down to a counter-challenge, rather than a simple admission of guilt?"

-- Because there's really nothing else to do but point out the charge is logically unsound. It implies ALL Republicans are secret racists, yearning for the day they can return to their KKK/Democrat roots.

That's... it's just not rational, or logical. I don't care about "winning" a political argument. I'm trying to honestly understand the people putting *forward* the flawed arguments. What is the difference they see? Am I -missing- their logic? Have I overlooked something -- or is it really just a flaccid attempt at poisoning the well?

I want to understand; I'm not going to get that way by trying to pretend like a bad argument is a good one. The argument is flawed; it is not well founded. Until I can see WHY it is well founded, I see no reason to do anything else with the argument BUT question it.

Think of it like a game; if I can beat a game only using one move -- why learn the rest? The argument "All Republicans are secret racists," is just a chant, some sort of little meme or mnemonic device or social signalling -- it can't be what people REALLY believe.

Or, if it is, I want to know WHY.

phx said...

-- So, uh, how come this "one person in a group said a bad thing, so they all must want to say it" standard never works when Democrats say racist, stupid, mean things?

I don't know. Maybe we should talk about how you could make that work for you. Because it's really not.

Shanna said...

don't like the Republican politicians who think they need their own celebrity endorsements to compete with the Democrats

Ted Nugent is a lose canon (this is hardly the first time he's said something similar), so I definately think any politician who would officially bring him into a campaign is not thinking straight.

As for the other, yes, republicans are not really going to win a competion based on celebrity supporters. However, they do need people to play at the RNC and some celebrities voluntarily campaign for the people they believe in, which is their right - just as much as it is yours or mine. So, I'm not sure what the best way to handle it is...

Shanna said...

it can't be what people REALLY believe.

They do. It doesn't have to be logical.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Maybe we should talk about how you could make that work for you."

-- So it is just a thing said because it is effective at making Republicans look like bad guys?

Titus said...

Also, the ugly rocker, said this a few weeks ago; not years ago.

The sex with an underage girl, that he has admitted to, is what is even more disturbing....but it's ok, he's cool.

When one person says something disgusting, regardless of party, why is it so difficult for members of that party to even call it out...sad.

and
tits

Matthew Sablan said...

Shanna: Not so sure on that; note that Phx didn't say "because it's true for one and not the other." Rather, it is purely utilitarian. It doesn't work for Republicans, but it works for Democrats.

Now, if Phx ALSO believes all Republicans are secret racists, fine. We can work with that, but right now, it sounds like it is just a political tool to make people angry at Republicans.

phx said...

Well that's the only angle I'VE been looking at it from. I'm sure other people have different angles and different concerns. But personally, I'm not offended by Ted at all.

I think this is the angle you Republican strategic planners need to focus on right now. That's just my opinion of course.

Matthew Sablan said...

See, this is a useful data point. It isn't a real belief [so, people parroting it aren't just illogical/angry people.]

Rather, it's a rational attempt to make people hate each other, angling for political gain from the fallout.

Depressing, but hey, at least it is rational.

Inga said...

Republicans have become their own worst enemy, Democrats don't have to lift a finger to discredit them, all we have to do is wait, and not even that long.

Brando said...

I can't believe anyone would defend this clown. His previous statements have been the usual unhinged crap but now he goes for straight up blatant racism. Rand Paul was right to condemn him, and shame on those who didn't.

And for those of us who have legitimate beef with Obama's actions as president, this kind of thing is especially damaging because it gives yet more fuel to the Obamaphiles who say there's racism behind all our critiques. Complete rot, of course, but Nugent's bigoted crap just gives them ammo.

And while Nugent shouldn't be relevant politically--nor should any other entertainer--he certainly gets more respect from Republicans than he deserves. He's been on the campaign trail for Greg Abbott in TX, and was a congress mans guest at a state of the union speech. Wonderful. What, are they actually trying to get 0% of the black vote? Is this what has become of the party of Lincoln?

The comment was just plain disgusting. Obama should be shamed for many things but his race isn't one of them. And any complaints that "the Democrats do this too!" --well, that's supposed to excuse it?

phx said...

I don't even have to get to the question of how horrible Ted's statement is from a civil point of view.

Just looking at it as a strategic political problem and a harbinger of more to come is more than enough to keep me busy with Republican defenders.

Do you want to talk about it as a moral issue? That's different.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Republicans have become their own worst enemy, Democrats don't have to lift a finger to discredit them, all we have to do is wait, and not even that long."

-- So, do you honestly believe that Nugent is representative of Republicans? Do you believe all Republicans are secret racists?

Or, is this purely a political game to stir up hate towards people you dislike? I'm trying to understand the logic behind how this works, so, help me out.

Bob Ellison said...

phx, imagine that you think the way I do. It's trying, I know.

Now imagine that you actually think that the policies I endorse are actually good for humans and the Earth.

Very trying.

Try, though. I try to understand how lefties think. Lefties usually seem to assume that righties are evil and stupid. I can argue the opposite on both counts if you like, but I won't go there right now.

Try to assume that we actually believe what we say.

Matthew Sablan said...

See, does anyone remember the guy who talked about killing all white people? He was something in government, a Democrat, I believe.

No one would even pretend that his views are representative of all African-Americans or of all Democrats.

So, why does Nugent saying something less offensive -- why does that inspire people to insinuate "all Republicans are secret racists?"

Is it just because hate works, and hey, politics ain't beanbag?

Inga said...

Matthew, by what I've read here and elsewhere, Nugent seems to be a representative of too many rightists. Not enough rightists are coming out to distance themselves from him and make him be what he really should be to decent people, a pariah. What kind of public servant would invite such a person to a SOTU address, or accompany him on stage during a political campaign for Governor?

the wolf said...

Is he indeed? Was he in the 70's?

Nugent has always been anti-alcohol and anti-drug.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matthew Sablan,

"It implies ALL Republicans are secret racists, yearning for the day they can return to their KKK/Democrat roots."

I don't think that's true - we speak colloquially - I just pointed out to Ann today (on the thread about climate change) how lame that criticism is because it doesn't address the problem at all.

Are "all" Republicans racist? Of course not, but have they made a home for racists to hide in? Most definitely, and if they're not about rooting them out, we're done.


"That's... it's just not rational, or logical. I don't care about "winning" a political argument. I'm trying to honestly understand the people putting *forward* the flawed arguments. What is the difference they see? Am I -missing- their logic? Have I overlooked something -- or is it really just a flaccid attempt at poisoning the well?"

You're missing their argument, which can summed up by saying MLK told us to leave the Republican Party until it rooted out it's racists. It hasn't. It has preferred to deny they're there. This won't work any longer. We're done debating it. I'm still a Republican but I've been withholding my vote. 

"I want to understand; I'm not going to get that way by trying to pretend like a bad argument is a good one. The argument is flawed; it is not well founded. Until I can see WHY it is well founded, I see no reason to do anything else with the argument BUT question it."

George Bush: "If you're not with us, you're with the terrorists." Shout the racists down. Make them crawl out of their holes and chop their heads off. If you're letting your fellow man suffer, just to protect a principle, what good is it? I'm supposed to follow "Republicans don't attack Republicans" but fuck that - the shit's got to stop. Sitting with the people playing cat-and-mouse with race, and then saying you won't do anything but heckle their marks, because they (mistakenly?) said "everybody" was in on it, doesn't make much logical sense, either, does it?

"Think of it like a game; if I can beat a game only using one move -- why learn the rest? The argument "All Republicans are secret racists," is just a chant, some sort of little meme or mnemonic device or social signalling -- it can't be what people REALLY believe."

No, you're extrapolating to much from it. We are products of a culture. A culture we don't like to face. A culture that, to a large extent, has been hidden to us.

"Or, if it is, I want to know WHY."

They believe it because it's true - this IS a racist country. It can't be avoided. The Dems have their brand of it as well. But, right now, the Republican flavor is making a lot of head-way - for the Democrats - so, if you give a damn about the Right, those of us trying to get us back on the right side of history (freed the slaves, etc.) need your help.

Bob Ellison said...

Inga said "Matthew, by what I've read here and elsewhere, Nugent seems to be a representative of too many rightists. Not enough rightists are coming out to distance themselves from him and make him be what he really should be to decent people, a pariah."

Oh, he's my guy. Ted Nugent speaks for me 100%. If you don't hear from me saying I disagree with what he said, then you can paint me as a KKK member.

Bob Ellison said...

The stupidity, it runs deep with the lefties.

phx said...

So, why does Nugent saying something less offensive -- why does that inspire people to insinuate "all Republicans are secret racists?"

Matthew, you have GOP candidates stumping with the guy, right? That's yer problem right there!

Matthew Sablan said...

Crack: Except, I'm NOT defending any racists. That's the problem with everything you've laid out; Republicans routinely police their own. Unless we're being asked to proactively pre-police people, I just don't see what more is to be done.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Matthew, you have GOP candidates stumping with the guy, right? That's yer problem right there!"

-- Jesse Jackson is still accepted in polite company, and has said some pretty offensive things as well. So, yeah. I'm not understanding this: Is it only a thing against Republicans because it works and instills some extra hate in the electorate towards people you don't want to win?

Inga said...

Matthew, if you think Republicans are doing a good job of policing their own, I've got a bridge to sell you.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Matthew, if you think Republicans are doing a good job of policing their own, I've got a bridge to sell you."

-- What do you want them to do? Kill someone? Seriously, Republicans routinely call out other Republicans when they say stupid things. You're willfully blind if you don't see it.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matthew Sablan,

Jesse Jackson is still accepted in polite company, and has said some pretty offensive things as well.

Yeah, and Jesse jackson was standing right there when MLK was shot, so excuse me if I give him a pass when it comes to grievance. Even occasionally misguided grievance. I understand. He's carried this country sometimes, and you guys treat him like you did the work for him when the truth was he was cursed all the way.


"So, yeah. I'm not understanding this: Is it only a thing against Republicans because it works and instills some extra hate in the electorate towards people you don't want to win?"

No - I'm a Republican - it's 400 years of historically documented fact. The Republicans once played a major role in American life and now they've lost the plot. They can't blame the Democrats.

They can only blame themselves.

Inga said...

Matthew,
The first step could be never ever being seen with or associating with Nugent.

You aren't alone. It's pretty apparent the GOP has not got this understood this yet either. And it costs them big time, IMO.

Titus is spot on at 2:20 pm.

Shanna said...

Hmm. I don't know why he's like this then.

Flat out, anybody that uses a term like 'sub human' about anybody needs to be put down, hard. That kind of shit is dangerous.

Why does a Democrat have to prescribe this simple over-the-counter cure for your ailment? Can't you figure it out yourself?

-- I think of him as something of a tragic hero, honestly. I'm just not sure what the cut-off is -- at what point does someone enter Nugent "must be shunned for eternity" and when do they get a pass?

There's no consistency here.

Matthew Sablan said...

"It's pretty apparent the GOP has not got this understood this yet either. And it costs them big time, IMO."

-- Except, not really. That list Titus gives -- there are equally abhorrent people on the left. It's just the right fails to effectively weaponize it against the left; is that really all it is though?

phx said...

Matthew, you're a good guy. You're not dumb, are you? Don't you get it?

Matthew Sablan said...

"Why does a Democrat have to prescribe this simple over-the-counter cure for your ailment?"

-- I give up. The people on the left seem to not care about explaining things. I get it: Some people on the right are bad. Total ostracization is the only acceptable choice for the right; for the bad people on the left, well, since the right doesn't make people who, you know, killed people, like Bill Ayers, radioactive enough, since the right doesn't stoke the hate fires enough, fair's fair that they can't get the left to cannibalize their own.

Matthew Sablan said...

"Matthew, you're a good guy. You're not dumb, are you? Don't you get it?"

-- I've yet to defend Nugent; I don't care about him. I'm trying to address the differing standards and understand WHY it works only one way. You've provided an answer: Because people on the left don't really believe it, but see it as a useful political lever.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matthew Sablan,

There's no consistency here.

Sure there is. You don't have a starting point.

How bad guy status shifted from Dem to Repub is another story, but we've got a starting point.

RecChief said...

"Don't you get it? "

PHX, please explain then.

Crack has refused my request, please go ahead and explain IT.

Revenant said...

James Bevel was standing right there when MLK was shot. Does he get a pass for raping his daughters? :)

Jesse Jackson was a tireless advocate for Jesse Jackson's interests -- civil rights for black people being one such interest, of course, since guess what color Jackson is?

Having been a hanger-on to a real hero doesn't give him a pass for all the harm he has done to others -- black people very much included -- over the years.

bbkingfish said...

"Subhuman mongrel" is aptly described by Ted as streetfighter terminology...the streets of Munich c.1930. Ted is a real streetfighter.

Shouting Thomas said...

Nugent should not have apologized. The apologizing ritual is always a mistake. Better to say nothing, or simply extend one's middle finger at full length while uttering the relevant profanities and curses.

The slightest hint of weakness attracts the Mau-Mauers like flies to shit. Witness Crack.

I like some of Nugent's music. He's pretty funny a lot of times, too.

Killing and Grilling is a very good idea.

The Crack Emcee said...

Matthew,

"I'm trying to address the differing standards and understand WHY it works only one way."

Whites turned slavery into a blacks-only affair while proclaiming all men are created equal, this is why blacks have little accumulated wealth today.

The Dems were the bad guys until Barry Goldwater came along and MLK said to leave the party, so blacks did and never came back, because the Republicans haven't cared - they just did what they had to, to win.

That gamble, that the party could lie down with this country's racists, is now paying off.

They lost,...

David53 said...

I don't think you guys read the story. It's pretty funny. Nugent's first attempt is the best.

"I do apologize–not necessarily to the President–but on behalf of much better men than myself"

And then

Later on...asked Nugent if he was directly apologizing to the President for the comments.

"Yes," Nugent replied.


No groveling here!

And what is "streetfighter terminology" anyway?

Is that how guys talk to each other before they fight in the streets?

Hey you subhuman mongrel, I'm gonna kick you ass!



Great stuff!

Marshal said...

Inga said...
Matthew,

You'd think those whose side associates with Al Sharpton would try to set a standard distinguishing between he and Nugent. But being a leftist means simply ignoring your own failures.

For those keeping score, deaths caused by:

Nugent - zero.
Sharpton - seven.

Shouting Thomas said...

For the youngsters among us, let me advise you that Crack's Mau-Mauing act has been with us my entire life (over six decades), and probably long before that, too.

The sensible Mau-Mauers are looking for a no-show government job or grant. The Black Panthers in Chicago, back in the 60s, convinced the Dems to give them cash for, you guessed it, "community organizing!"

Many of the Panthers had a side job as an FBI informant against other party members and as general snitches against rival drug gang members and pimps.

What in the hell Crack's looking for is anybody's guess.

The Mau-Mauers always say that there's just one more debt to be collected from Whitey, but a new debt always appears in the place of the old one.

The Race Man act never goes away. Crack is, it seems, a volunteer. What an odd thing to do for free.

Gahrie said...

That gamble, that the party could lie down with this country's racists, is now paying off.

The Democrats defended slavery, and split this country in two to try and defend it. The Republican Party was formed to oppose slavery.

The Republicans wrote and passed the Civil Rights Amendments, which were opposed by the Democrats.

Democrats imposed Jim Crow and segregation on Blacks and lynched Blacks for decades.

All those governors and cops keeping Blacks out of White schools, and setting dogs and fire hoses on Blacks were Democrats.

Democrats want to treat Black people as a group defined by their color, Republicans want to treat them as individuals.

But the Republicans are the racists..........

Revenant said...

Not being a leftist, I wouldn't know, but being black tells me you give Al no context for those failures - or his successes - as though they occurred in Disneyland where nobody gets hurt and life is an E-Ticket. Is that it?

While you're so eager to keep a running tally, would you care to tell us a bit about him and why - without resorting to racist shit - Sharpton is so important to the black community?

Please, tell us what you know about Al Sharpton - excluding what you've told us already.

Since I know very little about Ted Nugent, I can't judge him by one sound bite. Ted Nugent is not running for office so I have no obligation to waste time trying to determine what he meant by his choice of words. Perhaps he meant it in a racist way, perhaps not.

If the best thing Sharpton has said is "Knockout games- the biggest form of cowardice", he's even more pathetic than I thought. Knockout games are evil, vicious, criminal, and racist, and would be just as bad if they weren't also cowardly. Is Sharpton saying that it's OK for young thugs to punch out unsuspecting elderly people of other races if they do it face-to-face and give them a warning before punching? That would definitely be less cowardly, but it's still evil, vicious, criminal, racist violence.

President-Mom-Jeans said...

I'm sure Babykiller Barbie will surge to a double digit victory in her Governors race now.

All thanks to Ted Nugent.

Al Sharpton on the knockout games

Weevil,
Read it for yourself before putting words in his mouth.

Dr Weevil said...

I just quoted what you quoted, Igna. Even if Sharpton said more about it, you thought his calling it "cowardly" was enough to ennoble him, which makes you a moron. Well, not "makes", but illustrates just what a kneejerk leftie fool you are.

Probably everyone says something stupid at times. Sound bites are a poor way to judge someone. I like Gregg Abbott because he is not letting the haters and race baiters on the left have their way with him.

Dr Weevil said...

Gee, I quote exactly what Igna(ramus) said Sharpton said, and even started my comment with an "IF", and that's not good enough for Igna. If she thought other parts were more pertinent, maybe she should have quoted them.

I read the linked piece: he said a lot of harsh things about the knockout game, but there are two huge gutless evasions:

(a) He summed up at the end by calling it "cowardly", which misses the point entirely, as I have pointed out, and the headline goes along with that.

(b) His suggestions for dealing with the problem are pathetic: "These kids must be held accountable, and then they must receive the right guidance and mentorship to halt any further damage." These "kids" don't need "guidance" after they've killed or maimed someone, they need to be in jail for a long time. Guidance is for those who are thinking of taking up the knockout "game". Seeing those who have already done so go to jail would be better guidance than a tough talking-to from someone with Sharpton's record.

if were going to judge Sharpton on his words at least judge him on his negative words since you're judging Nugent on his.

I'd go with with his white interloper speech back when he helped incite a riot that led to the death of a Jewish guy.
"We will not stand by and allow them to move this brother so that some white interloper can expand his business."

Imagine if this was down south and a black business was in a predominantly white neighborhood and the local rednecks incited a riot by saying "we wil not stand by and allow them to move this white man so,that some black interloper can expand his business."
