Ted Nugent: Talentless Right Wing Liar, Fraud, and Hypocrite

Ted Nugent, who plays the guitar as if his hands were made out of concrete, has published a hilariously bad "op-ed" in the lunatic right's most high profile cesspool, the editorial pages of the Wall Street Journal. He excoriates "filthy hippies" for their obsession with sex and drugs and basically blames everything that's wrong with America on the 1967 "Summer of Love". Down with Tyranny has an excellent rebuttal here:
Nugent is a voice of ultra-reaction, something like Ann Coulter, with the craziest corner of modern day Republicanism. Like the Germans who blamed their predicament on everyone but themselves after World War I and constantly agitated for fascism, Nugent is incapable of learning anything from history.

Laughably, Nugent poses as a paragon of traditional values. Let's see what Mr. Brave Right Wing Defender of Morality is really like. From The Populist:

Ted Nugent is not a perfect person, nor is he the Rock and Roll superstar that he likes to believe that he is. It is well known that Ted Nugent was quite the Ladies man back in the 1970's. It is also a somewhat well known fact that Mr. Nugent led a very naughty relationship with an under aged woman, who was about 15-20 years his junior, and also became her legal guardian, with the consent of her parents of course. Although, confidentially I am told that Ted intimidated her parents into signing the consent forms. The relationship was not a very happy one, however, once this beautiful young woman realized that she was nothing more than an on call sex slave and caretaker of Ted's Children and house. She finally became fed up with his womanizing ways and left. I will give Mr. Nugent credit; he did marry and have children. His first wife, Sandra Jezowski, was killed in a car accident in 1982. Ted blamed drugs, although, friends of mine who live in the area in which this happened, tell me that Sandra was suicidal because Ted was more interested in being mister rock and roll star than being a loving husband and father to their two children. The couple was divorced when the accident happened.

And how many underaged teenaged girls did Mr. Virtue nail while he was tour? I think that's still called statutory rape. (Or maybe he would prefer the term pedophilia.) Hey, Teddy Boy, don't you advocate death for rapists?

Nugent also likes to portray himself as a superpatriot. Let's see how he was when it was his turn to defend America in Vietnam:

In 1990 he told the Detroit Free Press newspaper:"[that] 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.”

Now THAT'S creative draft dodging! Wow! What a BRAVE AMERICAN!! Man, no wonder that he and George W. Bush are such friends.
Additionally, Nugent likes to appear in public sometimes sporting his Confederate flag shirt. You remember the Confederates, don't you? The traitors who started the Civil War, a war that killed 600,000 Americans? So what if the rebel flag is the flag of treason and the people who wear it no better than the traitors who carried it into battle to fight for the preservation of human slavery and the death of America? Teddy Boy is proud, by God, to wear it to events such as Texas Republican Governor Rick Perry's inauguration.
Nugent is a pathetic, emotionally crippled former sexual predator. He mindlessly hates women, hates gays, hates the genuine patriots who are against the Iraq War, and tries to compensate for his inadequacies by fondling his phallic-symbol guns constantly. He's the perfect example of the modern conservative Republican: lecturing about virtue while being a complete moral degenerate.
Oh yeah: and his "music" is dogshit, too.

I definitely don't agree with the sweaty one's politics nor 80% of his my-way-or-the-highway attitude, but I have to present this as "exhibit A" in his defense as an occasional manifestation of pure rock 'n' roll awesomeness (I had discounted him completely until I heard it 4 years ago)
(link plays within the page a'la youtube)

I have yet to hear a live recording which tops its energy.

But isn't Ted Nugent one of the most influencial guitarist of the 20th century. I mean... he did write "Cat Scratch Fever", right? I mean he is up there with Bob Dylan on being influencial right? What a piece of shit, no pun intended teddy boy. Individuals Like Bob Dylan actualy cared about change, oh and could sing.

ted freely admits to joining in on police raids ....he loves to partake in the destruction of america and americans ...even if he is not smart enough to realize he is one of kissingers dumb animals.

I just wanted to say that I could not agree more!! Nugent is total BS as far as his Politics and his own personal history. As far as his Rock Career it took the same predictable path that most of his peers have taken, and are echoed by many Metal and Hip Hop Groups. The only concerns are Sex, Money, and feeding an "inflated ego"!!!

I am from the DETROIT area and I grew up on rock music. If Ted would have just quit after his first album, all would have been well with the world. I agree vehemently he is a intellectual midget and ranks very low on the talent scale. I am sick and tired of hearing TURD Ted on the radio talking about being a Patriot, Ted is a piece of shit who HATES, he is your TYPICAL REDNECK ASSHOLE.
