The jury got it right and now non racist America rejoices that there is still common sense, honesty, and decency aware of identifying justice in this country.
Theodore Anthony Nugent writing about the acquittal of George Zimmerman
Well opinions are like assholes, everybody has one. Our man Theodore, also known as "The Nuge," "The Motor City Madman," and just plain ol' Ted certainly has his.
In the same article, written for the right wing online zine "Rare," the decrepit rock and roll guy declared the killing of Trayvon Martin, "...represents the purest form of self defense there is. It is exactly why people who believe in good over evil carry a gun, to protect themselves from the well documented violence that plagues our country, in order to save our lives from life threatening attacks. Period."
Of course if Brother Zimmerman hadn't gotten out of his car and followed Trayvon Martin the shooting wouldn't have occurred. In fact in many corners, this one included, there is a sneaking suspicion that George Zimmerman lied to the police about the events immediately prior to the confrontation. That whole looking for a street sign story just doesn't make sense to many of us, especially when you consider there are only three streets in the gated community and Mr. Zimmerman patrolled them regularly.
The Nuge went on to write, "(the) race baiting industry saw an opportunity to further the racist careers of Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, the Black Panthers, President Obama, and Attorney General Eric Holder et al who then swept down on the Florida community refusing to admit that the 17 year old dope smoking, racist, gangsta wannabe, Trayvon Martin was at all responsible for his bad decisions and standard modus operandi of always taking the violent route."
Okay, so there you have it. We've established Trayvon Martin was a racist, presumably because he called Geoerge Zimmerman a creepy ass cracker. In addition every black person who thinks the jury's decision was a travesty is also a racist because they disagree with the ultimate authority, Ted Nugent. Meanwhile, Trayvon Martin had no right to stand his ground and defend himself against an unidentified stranger who was stalking him on a dark evening. And although I'm not exactly sure when the president and Eric Holder "swept" down on Sanford, Florida, I hate to stop a guy when he is on a roll.
But now that we're talking about such stuff, Ted, what exactly is your personal line score when it comes to common sense, honesty, and decency?
After the re-election of Barak Obama, one of Nugent's many tweets said, "I cry tears of blood for the Last Best Place and the warriors who died for this tragedy."
Actually when the Nuge had a chance to be a warrior, he did what many of us back in the sixties did--he worked like hell to avoid it. How he got out of the compulsory military draft depends on which interview you read. In an early one he claimed that for thirty days prior to his appearance at the draft board he stopped bathing, or changing clothes. He also said during that foul month he urinated and defecated in those same pants he wasn't changing out of, all the while gorging himself with junk food. Later on he said the whole story was a joke and that he'd gotten a deferment after he snorted a line of meth right before showing up for the physical. Subsequently he decided that tale was another joke and said he'd received a student deferment because he was enrolled in Oakland (MI) Community College. I'm not familiar with the attendance policy at OCC, but apparently it is pretty lax. Numerous reports say he was touring 300 days a year with his band at that point in his career.
Whatever the case, Nugent did get out of serving in the armed forces and has been quoted as saying, "I didn't want to get my ass shot off in Vietnam." In other words being out in the bush with a weapon isn't nearly as much fun when the prey can and will return fire.
Then there is that, gotta love the young girls thing. Young as in real young. Nugent maintains he's never done drugs, or alcohol, (the draft board story not withstanding) but he did admit on VH1's Behind the Music he had an addiction to young females. In 1978, when he was 30, he hooked up with a 17 year old Hawaiian girl named Pele Massa. He was able to avoid some pointed questions by the authorities when he convinced her parents to sign their daughter over to him, making him her legal guardian. Spin Magazine rates this squalid affair as number 63 on its top 100 sleaziest moments in rock and roll history.
In addition the Motor City Madman has fathered five children out of wedlock and prior to his first marriage gave up two others to adoption. Hey, if they can't hold their own on the tour bus let 'em find another ride.
There are other small infractions. Like hunting deer in California with out a deer tag, shooting an underage buck, and using illegal deer bait to lure the beast in for the kill. He pleaded no contest to it all, paid a fine and that was that.
Obviously it is a lot easier to talk the talk than it is to walk the walk.
Despite his personal litany of sins the Tedster has been hinting he might be available as a republican presidential candidate in 2016.
Mr. Nugent, I believe I speak for all leftists and other democrats when I say to you, please run. Honestly. I mean it.
Until then just keep up the rhetoric. It is people like you who make campaigning easier for the Hillary Clintons of the world.
Oh, and as a personal favor, stay the fuck away from my daughters, because quite frankly, in the words of the late Trayvon Martin, you are a creepy ass cracker.
