If there was ever any definitive proof of the severely psychological imbalance of today’s GOP, it’s the title of this article.
Not quite satisfied with earning himself a full-blown Secret Service investigation (of which he’s oddly in favor), crappy washed up musician and even crappier political pundit Ted Nugent is stubbornly standing by all the breathtakingly insane and violent remarks he made towards Democrats and president Obama.
Speaking with fellow pundit, Dana Loesch, the motor city mad men went full-blown Charlie Sheen but without the talent and redeemable qualities.
“This is the Saul Alinsky ‘Rules for Radicals’ playbook,” Nugent told conservative radio host Dana Loesch. “You see, I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally and there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government because I have the audacity to speak the truth, to identify the violations of our government, particularly [Attorney General] Eric Holder and the president and [Treasury Secretary] Tim Geithner, ad nauseum.” (Source: Raw Story)
Firstly, Nugent’s analogies are about as cogent as his lyrics so he should be barred from partaking in both. As far as speaking the truth, such luminaries and social activists as Norman Mailer, Noam Chomsky, Upton Sinclair, Cindy Sheehan, and Jane Addams tend to fall into that category. However, not so much the insane uncle-in-the-attic,who plays part kindergartener-on-Halloween meets Larry the Cable Guy dress-up on national television and threatened the lives of elected officials. So Nugent is also officially banned from public discourse and dissident patriotism.
Regarding the news of the Secrete Service investigation, Nugent said the following:
“We actually have heard from the Secret Service and they have a duty. I support them. I salute them. And I look forward to our meeting tomorrow,” he said. “I‘m sure we’ll have a great conversation…bottom line is, I‘ve never threatened anybody’s life in my life. I’ve never threatened. I don’t waste breath threatening.” (Source: Raw Story)
Apparently telling someone to “suck on your machine gun” is cute and endearing and not the least bit threatening of all. In fact, it’s almost teabagger foreplay.
Continuing his faux bravado and affinity for law enforcement, Nugent welcomed the investigation with open arms (well, when they’re not presently holding semi-automatic rifles).
He continued, going on to reiterate his respect for the law enforcement officials.
“We’re going to have a little barbecue get together,” he said. “And I’m not trying to diminish the seriousness of this, because if the Secret Service are doing it they are serious. They are dedicated and I will be as polite and supportive as I possibly can be, which will be thoroughly.”
Let’s just hope that they invite a trained Vienna psychologist to accompany them and analyze the infinitesimal relevance that deludes Mr. Nugent. Better yet, let’s hope they serve up some juicy roast of reality.
