I'm going with the "'cause he's a total farking whackjob" theory..
 
2013-08-05 09:19:19 AM
I actually saw some guy who had a Ted Nugent for President bumper sticker on his pickup over the weekend.

I guess I have to accept that there are people who agree with his "views."  But President?  Really?  Same people still pissing and moaning about Jane Fonda would like to see the coward who fled the fight by shiatting his pants be President.  Nonsense.

He pooped his jorts.
 
2013-08-05 09:47:13 AM
Good question. While he's certainly worthy of ridicule, hating him is akin to hating the random crazy guy you see walking down the street yelling at people who aren't there.
 
2013-08-05 09:49:17 AM
Nugent is an colossal asshole, but is he really worth protesting? He doesn't have any authority or even a TV/radio show with advertisers to persuade. Seems like a waste of time better spent on something that actually matters.

If anything, protesting only galvanizes his attention who resolve. You know, a troll.

Hate Ted Nugent?

I pity the fool.

For one  thing, he lied to us.

He promised us he'd be dead or in jail by now. He obviously doesn't care to keep his promises.

I don't have a problem with people who want to blow away tried deer on their own land...until they start acting like they are some bad ass wild man...like The Nuge.
 
2013-08-05 10:04:24 AM
The place he's playing, according to the Wiki, has a capacity of 750. Tickets for the Nuge are $30 and going fast many still available.

Irrelevance. That's got to be a way worse punishment for an insecure attention whore than any protest. Hell, the protest probably feeds that enormous, starving ego.

His music is really terrible. Just really bad dickrock jock jamz with no subtlety or ability and it was essentially for people with no taste to cruise to while waiting for Nu Metal to be invented.

No, people who hate freedom hate freedom, and people who hate Ted Nugent hate Ted Nugent.

One word.

Vietnam. If he wasn't brave enough to be drafted and go to Southeast Asia and fight for French oil rights, he has no business expecting others to volunteer to go to the Middle East and fight for British oil rights. I mean, he didn't even have those life-threatening, debilitating pyloid cysts that struck down his fellow coward Rush Limbaugh.

I don't. I love Ted Nugent or at least Ted Nugent v.1968. "Journey to the Center of the Mind" is high on my playlist for my athletics time ie running/distance walking.

This turd shiat his pants to avoid service in Vietnam. That's pissing all over every draftee ever in this country and certainly sprinkles on the volunteer military as well. Nugent's not an asshole. That would be giving him too much credit. He's a shiatstain, a little man who can't keep his sewer of a mouth shut.

I don't like it that if I want to go to the county fair to see some bands I liked in High School (late '70s), and Nuge is on the bill, he gets to think he was even part of the reason I attended.

Well, I was mostly just going for things equally rare and potentially mythical.
 
2013-08-05 10:37:54 AM
I for one am shocked that a reasonable dialogue cannot be forged with the creator of "Wang Dang Sweet Poontang".  You've just got to really listen to some of Ted's lyrics to really get what he's trying to say.

For example "I made that pussy purr with a stroke of my hand" is what is known as a double entendre.  Ted is speaking as if he's referencing a cat, but it could mean that he's referencing a woman's anatomy.

There are just so many layers to Ted's lyrics.

I would agree with this if reporters regularly interviewed and published interviews with "random crazy guy you see walking down the street".

Answer a question to read the article? OK, just his once and only so I can copy pasta the article here:

NEW HAVEN - Barbara Fair will be outside Toad's Place Tuesday night picketing Ted Nugent's appearance at the music venue, and she says she really wants is to talk to the controversial figure.
Fair and others will be protesting statements Nugent made about immigrants, blacks, gays and Trayvon Martin. Some 70 people committed to joining the picket line and thousands signing a petition asking that Toad's cancel the "Motor City Madman's" concert.

"I would want to have a conversation with him to get him to think about some of the things he says. Like he thinks he is not racist because he has a black band leader - that's like 'oh, my best friend is black.' That means absolutely nothing. The words that spew out of your mouth show that you are a racist," said Fair, of My Brothers Keeper.

Ina Staklo, another protester, said both sides have used the free speech argument to support or criticize Nugent and the decision by Toad's Place to book the hard rock musician him is not a constitutional issue that requires it to bring him to their stage.

"It is up to (Toad's) discretion whom to allow to speak, whom to allow to perform on their premises based on their track record. So, they understand what Nugent's background is, they understand what his views are, they understand what he has said and what he is going to say and how that impacts this community.
"They chose profit over curbing that speech and that is entirely their decision," Staklo said.

Because they have not been able to talk directly with Brian Phelps, the president and owner of Toad's, they feel a picket line is their immediate option to make their views known, and additional picketing of Toad's is possible. "We are going to protest and think about future boycotts of the business since that is what seems to affect him," Fair said.

They pointed out that shows get cancelled all the time.
"Remember the Dixie Chicks?" said Chris Graffa. "They were getting banned all over the South."
The Dixie Chicks were boycotted by country stations in 2003 for criticizing President Bush's plans for war in Iraq.
When the Nugent booking was announced, Phelps defended his decision, although he has refused to comment lately. His attorney was unavailable for comment Sunday.

"Ted Nugent is an entertainer and he has his own views on a lot of stuff. The entire spectrum of entertainer folks go from extreme right to extreme left, and some in the middle," Phelps said last month. "But that's got nothing to do with his show here, nor does it have anything to do with Toad's Place. This is just a music show. His political views are his, and the media that gets involved with him."

Most recently, Nugent's blog on George Zimmerman, who was acquitted of all charges in the death of Trayvon Martin, has kept him in the spotlight.

"George Zimmerman is thankfully and rightfully not facing jail time for legally defending himself, but he is far from a free man ... While there is little he can do to protect himself from a civil-rights charge by our gun-running, pro-New Black Panthers attorney general, Mr. Zimmerman may have some legal room to move regarding a wrongful death lawsuit by Trayvon Martin's family," he said.

He described Trayvon Martin, who was unarmed, as a "17-year-old dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe."

He said the black community has a "mindless tendency to violence."

Last year, Nugent told the National Rifle Association,"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year'" That prompted a visit from the Secret Service.
The New Haven Register this week stood by its editorial criticizing Nugent and continued to call on "Fox News to challenge and condemn the hatred and racism advocated by guests such as Ted Nugent and Ann Coulter instead of continuing to give them a platform." but it apologized for "a poor choice of words."
Nugent, in an interview for the nationally syndicated radio program "The Weekend" that was aired on WGAN in Maine and dozens of other stations across the country Saturday, called the Register editorial writers and their supporters "subhuman numb-nuts." He called the protesters "idiots."
"People who hate Ted Nugent hate freedom," he said.

Addressing the radio's host, Nugent said: "You and I stand on the line of reason" and we must continue to speak out.Gregory Williams of Seminarians for a Democratic Society said they were unable to speak with Phelps on Friday when they went to Toad's, but they were told by others there that they could only protest across the street from the business.

Williams said the law protects a moving picket line on a public sidewalk if access to the building continues. "It is entirely legal," Williams said.

The New Haven police have said Toad's has hired a couple of extra duty officers as they typically do with large events.

Staklo said supporters are saying the not only are "personally offended by his Nugent's hate speech, but ... feel betrayed by Toad's Place where they went as teenagers or where their kids go. They always considered it a welcoming multiracial place. ... Now people are saying they are not letting their kids go there."

Why do people even listen to musicians when they are not singing? The chances of any of these idiots making any significant contributions to political or social dialogue are pretty slim.

He actually has quite a bit of influence from his role on the board of the NRA where they funnel the political efforts into electing Republicans. I wonder if Oliver North makes jokes about him being a coward and he makes jokes back about North being a traitor to the country and should be shot. Then Grover Norquist pops up and screams "but what about the taxes biatches?!?!?!?"  Would make an interesting board party. As long as no one looks for Larry Craig when he goes to the bathroom.

Just playing devil's advocate here, but that's a fallacy.  Ad hominem.

What is your job?  What's your career?  Are your opinions and thoughts outside of that career insignificant?

Judge the person and their thoughts on their own merits.  Dismissing someone simply because they're a celebrity is kind of lazy.

Unfortunately, they have wider reach and greater audiences for their ideas.  So while I sympathize with your sentiment, it's a little wrong-headed.

When you claim to hate government getting in your face and telling you what to do, don't spend all of your time in people's faces telling them what to do.
I'm going to say I hate Ted Nugent because he's a hypocrite.  And his music has always sucked.  And he's mentally unstable.

I saw him at a show here in San Antonio about fifteen years ago. (I've actually seen him live four times) Anyway, on that night he was opening for another band.  During his performance he went into a rant about sending all the Mexicans back home to Mexico and if they can't speak English they need to go, etc.  The audience went wild, cheering and clapping.  Considering that 75% of the audience was Mexican-Americans, it was hilarious.
