Which came first: did Nugent’s rightwing ‘hero’ status accelerate his morbid stupidity — or was it his chronic dickheadedness which lead to his rightwing ‘hero’ status? In any case being born in 1948, he’s old enough to know better.
“Idiots are easily manipulated. They are useful pawns, and that’s about it. Consider the stooges of the fledgling movement “Occupy Wall Street.” These useful idiots are clamoring for social justice, as if they don’t have enough of that already. From what I can tell, the softheaded numskulls of Occupy Wall Street want investment bankers to give up their wealth, as in “spread the wealth around.” They are blaming Wall Street for the sad state of our economic malaise and for all the other problems of the world.” —- One of the LEAST-QUALIFIED men to judge anyone or anything: Fox News, Washington Times and Rick Perry favorite TED NUGENT shares his ‘deep thots’ on OccupyWallStreet
HOW NUGENT BRAVELY SHIT HIS PANTS TO AVOID THE VIETNAM DRAFT: In a July 15, 1990, Detroit Free Press interview, Nugent crowed about how he managed to dodge the draft. He claims that 30 days before his draft board physical, he disavowed personal hygiene. The last ten days he ingested nothing but junk food and Pepsi, and with a week to go until the physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether. When the big day came, he had been living in excrement-caked and urine-stained pants. Always the hero, however, Nugent reassured the Free Press, “But if I would have gone over there, I’d have been killed, or I’d have killed all the Hippies in the foxholes. I would have killed everybody.” (via: campusprogress.org)

RICK PERRY’S 2007 INAUGURAL BALL: The Motor City Madman played his scorching set draped in a confederate flag shirt – a symbol of slavery in just about everyone’s book – showing his pride for the South and his disrespect for African-American heritage in one crushing blow of 70’s-era guitar force. Perry danced on stage in his tuxedo, grinning contentedly. (via: austinist.com)
NUGENT ON SUPPORTING PERRY’S 2012 PRESIDENTIAL CAMPAIGN: “If I’m not given an authorized position in the campaign [it’s] because I’m too divisive,” Nugent told Billboard.com “I don’t know if I’ll get a stamp of approval because I am so volatile and because the line in the sand in a political campaign can be so ambiguous — and I’m anything but. […] on a rock ‘n’ roll stage, I can tell Hillary Clinton to straddle my machine gun.” (via: Rick Perry blog)
