So I guess now it will be politically incorrect to ever say the word slaughter, or does the rule just apply to NRA members?
I hate PC! What a bunch of crap.
Ted Nugent is a rock musician who has made his living by projecting the image of being a wild and crazy guitar god. He enjoyed quite a bit of popularity in the 70's by projecting himself in that persona on both record and stage. Age and the changing landscape of music have made that impossible for him to attain at this point. His political views are that of a radical conservative who holds the second amendment above all others. It is interesting that his use of the term "slaughter" is being condemned as the use of a violent term when it was applied to social programs and not to any individuals. Yet there was no outrage when the President of the United States used the phrase "If they bring a knife to the fight, we bring a gun." The same president who is now reacting to the tragedy in Connecticut by calling for more gun restrictions. A different standard, applied to different people I suppose. Missed in all of this is that what Nugent was talking about is probably not that far off the mark. The country is trillions of dollars in debt, and part of the problem is the entitlement programs that keep growing and growing year by year. Until somebody begins to realize that the entitlement programs are not sustainable, the country will have no hope of ever getting out from the debt that it is in right now. So we can keep debating the language being used, or we can start debating the more important things such as how we intend to pay for all of this.
I'm shocked, shocked that Ted Nugent would say something provocative.
Look, Nugent always says something to draw attention to himself. It would be more newsworthy for Nugent to speak on any subject and not say something outrageous. News at 11 - Ted Nugent speaks and offends not one person.

It looks as though the wheels are coming off the Nugent bus, and not a moment too soon.
Apparently Ted lost his temper while being questioned by a CBS reporter who pointed out the plain-as-day fact that Nugent is not a political moderate:
“Call me when you sit down across from someone who has more families with dying little boys and girls who get a call to take them on their last fishing trip in life!” an enraged Nugent screamed. “Call me when you meet someone who does that more than I do because that’s really moderate! In fact, you know what that is? That’s extreme! I’m an extremely loving, passionate man! And people who investigate me honestly — without the baggage of political correctness — ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damn nice guy! And if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your ****ing dick!”
“Or **** you!” he said, turning to Glor’s female producer. “How’s that sound?”
The man is seriously losing his mind. We all knew he was a vile, pathetic human being, but now the seething hate and anger can no longer be concealed from the public.

Enraged Ted Nugent threatens to ‘f*ck’ female CBS producer
LinkConservative rocker Ted Nugent believes the Newtown, Conn., shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School is the result of pervasive "spiritual bankruptcy" and a "politically correct" mentality in American culture.
Nugent penned a response to the Sandy Hook shooting, which left six school employees and 20 children dead, in an editorial for The Washington Times. In the piece, Nugent shifts blame from lax gun control, poor mental health programs, inadequate security at schools and violence in the media to the moral decay of society.
That ~ from someone with his background ~ talking about moral decay and spiritual bankruptcy.
He would do well to examine his own “exemplary” efforts taken to avoid the draft, and the scandals in his own life. Or maybe write a few more lyrical masterpieces like “Wang Dang Sweet ******ng” or “Wango Tango” for all of his conservative supporters like the Moonie newspaper, and Republican candidates like Mitt, or the ones who want him to run for office.
