Ted Nugent’s crude comments about Hillary Clinton and President Obama are causing problems for the GOP’s candidate for TX gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX). But they are, apparently, music to the ears of Sarah Palin. In a Facebook post, Palin wrote, “If (Abbott) is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!”
Is this what Palin likes so much about Nugent?
In case you missed it, Nugent made remarks referring to Hillary Clinton’s “spare scrotums” and calling President Obama “a Chicago, communist- raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured, subhuman mongrel.”
Watch it for yourself here:
The phrase “subhuman mongrel” is not just offensive, it’s the term used to justify genocide. Now, Abbott is running away from reporters who are asking about his inviting Ted Nugent to campaign with him; Abbott’s rival, Wendy Davis, is fundraising off Nugent’s words, and even the current GOP gov. of Texas, Rick Perry, has condemned them.
Greg has overcome many personal obstacles and challenges, which have made him a believer in the power of liberty and the need to defend our freedoms from the overreach of an out-of-control federal government. If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!
We shouldn’t be surprised Palin loves Nugent’s claptrap.
Palin seems to have a liking for anti-Semitic terms. You may recall that, in the past, she has accused her critics of committing a “blood libel” when she played the martyr of the Gabby Giffords shooting. The New York Times explained:
The term blood libel is generally used to mean the false accusation that Jews murder Christian children to use their blood in religious rituals, in particular the baking of matzos for passover. That false claim was circulated for centuries to incite anti-Semitism and justify violent pogroms against Jews. Ms. Palin’s use of the phrase in her video, which helped make it rapidly Be Overused So Much That You’ll Silently Pray for the Sweet Release of Death to Make it Stop, is itself attracting criticism, not least because Ms. Giffords, who remains in critical condition in a Tucson hospital, is Jewish.
Maybe Palin could join Nugent on the stump for Abbott. Even though the crazed rocker wouldn’t endorse her back in 2010:
