Ted Nugent might finally have gone too far.

Courtesy of the National Review:  

Ted Nugent should resign from the board of the National Rifle Association. And if he does not, he should be pushed from his position. 

This week, in the course of “defending” the right to keep and bear arms, Nugent enthusiastically shared a choice piece of anti-Semitic propaganda. Then, shamefully, he refused to acknowledge or to address his mistake. If Nugent wants to behave like a fool, that is, of course, his prerogative. But he must do so in quarantine, a long, long way from the rest of us. 

This is not an enjoyable or typical thing for me to write. As a rule, I like hyperbole. As a rule, I don’t think that there is anything wrong with harsh, indignant defenses of fundamental rights. And, as a rule, I like eccentrics and wish dearly that our culture gave them a little more latitude to be themselves. But there is nothing hyperbolic or eccentric about Nugent’s post, and nor does it channel his righteous indignation in support of a righteous cause. Contrary to some of the protestations I have seen, this is in no way a question of “political correctness” or of effete “elite sensibilities”; it is anti-Semitism, plain as day. To anybody with eyes, his message was as clear as it was indefensible: Disloyal, money-grabbing, Israel-preferring Jews are “really behind” the gun-control movement, and they should be cast out of American society in consequence. 

Now make note that this is coming from the National Review, not exactly the kind of "liberal rag" that Nugent is always haranguing against.

These are usually his kind of people.

So for them to call for his resignation, well that might actually result in his resignation.

Whether it's his choice, or forced upon him, that is another matter entirely.

Oh well, you know he will always have at least one staunch supporter.

Well until Donald Trump commands otherwise of course.

      You ask a fair question. Sadly, Rafael "Ted" Nugent may be suffering from an incurable slow-developing brain-eating parasite whose second worst consequence is the appearance of pubo-facial hair - cruelly referred to by taunting schoolboys as "dickface". Tho Ted will cheerfully admit he has absolutely zero compassion for you or any other living creature, perhaps you could show a little compassion for him. Because, you know... he might be a dickface.

    2. The right wing is rabidly pro-Israel, so their attack on Nugent isn' surprising.

      They are sensitive to nutjobs right now and while they may not be able to attack Donald Trump or Ted Cruz it's certainly open season on a whacko like Ted, who does nothing but draw negative attention to himself and reflect badly on the party.

      Yeah, the NRA should at the very least kick him off the board.

      Delete
  8. Why did they wait so long? Is it because it got too personal with a specific group of people? Of course it is! Nugent has been hurling offensive attacks on liberals, women, blacks, Muslim and others - except from right here on Gryphen's blog. Yes, I'm glad to see outrage finally, but why did it take so long!? If we don't stand up for one who's unfairly attacked, we don't stand for true equality and rights for ANYONE under our laws.

      They don't love Jews. They hate Jews.

      But they believe a certain number of Jews have to return to Israel and then convert to bring about the second coming.

    If Ted would only die as HE suggested would happen if our POTUS was re-elected, none of this would matter.

    Too cowardly to serve or even stand for the draft, he poops himself and gets out of it. Bad for him.

    Too cowardly to off himself when he said he would? Bad for us.

    No, I'm not wishing any harm on the man. I'm just wishing he would shit or get off the pot!

    2. He never said he'd commit suicide.

      The implication was that he'd be in prison for assassinating Obama or be killed in the attempt.

      More bloviating from Pedophile Poppy Pants.

      I wish he'd just left the country as he has also promised.

      He implied that he'd either be in prison for assassinating Obama or be killed in the attempt.

      But Mr. Pedophile Poppy Pants doesn't have the guts to back up all that hot air he's been bloviating. I think he promised if Obama was elected the first time he would leave the country and he didn't do that either.

      The guy is just one big fat bag of posturing pus. A Canker on the GOP's nose. An infected boil on the ass of the GOP.

      About time they slapped him upside the head and reamed him a new one. They are pro-Israel and this won't sit well with the leadership.

      The NRA should cut him loose. He is hardly a poster boy for the kind of membership they are trying to sell to the public.

  12. Sarah looks cross-eyed in that photo! So funny!! and I bet she thinks she looks sexy.

    Something that sarah and nugent have in common, besides the obvious: They're BOTH unpopular in their hometowns. Years ago I went on a motorcycle tour in MI and we were close to Redford when we stopped off at a bar. My friends told me, "Dont even ask about nugent in here, people who live around here do NOT like him." I wasnt a nugent fan then and I REALLY aint now, but i like to hear famous-people stories from the hometown folk. I was kind of shocked that his hometown doesn't really claim him, according to my buddies.
    That was 20 years ago, when we didn't have access to all the info lettin the rest of us know what the folks in Redford have known all along.

      In her defense, I'm sure she was trying to say "Oh, Ben Franklin was, like me, smart enough to BE president but never actually found the time to RUN for president."

  20. The board probably gives him a bonus for his craziness. The crazies that believe that crap are the same gun nuts that buy what the NRA is selling both figuratively and literally. The Republican candidates are a different story. Maddow called out Ted Cruz last night. I really can't imagine a scenario where a republican could possibly get elected president next year.

    She had the world by the tail and couldn't be a good steward of those things handed her. She had to destroy every good thing that came her way, by rebelling against good advice, rebelling, and align herself with racists and bigots and every nasty associate under heaven. Now, her 'gifts' have been spent on herself and her spawn. She invested in 'Sarah' and profits one big zero. No one will have anything to do with her now.
