It's very illuminating and helps explain to people, especially those who live abroad, what sort of person has maintained the Bush cabal in office all these years.
I will print it, bolden the part where he mentions the freedoms people apparently only have in the US, and copy it.

Well, one out of three isn't bad.

Ted's a nut. I couldn't possibly take him seriously...who really could? Why would a guy like that involve himself with politics?

Ted Nugent is a riot. Don't take anything he says seriously. I bet you half of what he says is a crock to get people like you riled up. He's probably laughing his butt off about the whole thing.

Last time Dick Cheney was in Iraq and a had bombs going off all around him I think I read on this forum that its too bad they didn’t hit him. Last time we heard anything from John Kerry, he was saying our troops weren’t smart enough to be in Iraq. It has been this way since the Vietnam war! I’d like to go on and on, but its time to go home. Have a good weekend everybody. I’m going to go enjoy some of my freedoms at happy hour.


honey, the war is lost, and everyone knows this, including our lovely commander in chief.

but don't worry, he's given us "the surge" which is a purely political tactic -- using the lives of american soldiers! -- to give people such as yourself another stabbed-in-the-back narrative so that you dont feel badly wearing your american eagle t-shirts and can say things like, "we didn't LOSE vietnam, it was a tie!"

we lost Vietnam. we lost Iraq.

the adults among us will deal with this fact.

you can go pout in the corner and curse the liberals.

the rest of us will deal with reality, and do our best to repair the damage that has been done over the past 7 years where we've had an administration lose 2 wars and the city of New Orleans. we'll rebuild the country, and you can go throw darts at "evil" countries and talk about how, next time, the libruls won't pull the rug out from under our feets. go get angry at the usual suspects -- newspapers, magazines, books -- because you know they're all head, no heart.

and keep on keeping on taking Stephen Coblert seriously. because he couldn't have written a parodic sermon as good as the one you've just given us.

Ted Nugent should be arrested. He is a redneKKK who threatened two lives. Republican or Democrat, a Senetor's life should not be threatened.

BTW,

When he stated that Mexicans should learn English if they want to live in America, he should have given that advice to his idol George W. as well.

Exactly. This is the point that is being missed.

Even some of the liberal posters are going "no-one takes Nugent seriously, he is a joke", etc.

I must have a sense of humour deficit, I don't see why it is a laughing matter to threaten the lives of sitting politicians.

If a Democratic politician is assasinated in the next few years, then Nugent is partially to blame for creating a climate where it is ok to make jokes (nothing to worry about! just a little joke! lighten up!) about machine gunning Democratic politicians.

It's also a matter of free speech rights in our country, I think. There's difficult and somewhat blurry line between true threats and (tasteless) political protest. I think the "liberal" posters here may see Ted's rantings as more along the lines of the latter, rather than true threats.

It could be that. In Europe, free speech rights are far more restricted, rightly or wrongly.

Exactly. Reference previous point, that the title of this thread implies that he is threatening to "shoot" these people.

No, he's crass and vulgar.

Now, I'll be heading down to shoot some trap. Getting a new 20 gague for my son and daughter. So much more fun that video games!

I read this quote from Bill Maher that I loved

"Ted Nugent was giving a concert and he held up a machine gun and made veiled threats about Hillary and Barack Obama. I find this shocking-Ted Nugent still has concerts?"
