At best, Ted Nugent was a lousy musician. He was known for hunting, race baiting, womanizing and his inability to be loyal to anything but gun toting and killing helpless animals (mostly in controlled environments). His conservative, political views like all others were divisive and ignorant.
Nugent who last year ominously declared, "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year" got his wish. He was found butt-naked on the floor at his spring trailer park ranch with a confederate flag wrapped around his head (his hair was smelly). Authorities said Nugent was surrounded by a stash of guns, a muddy wheelbarrow of Skoal chewing tobacco, a copy of The Catcher in the Rye and over 1,000 copies of newspaper and magazine articles of President Barack Obama with hate messages written on top of them with crayons. The cause of death is under investigation. However, sources tell willied.com that Nugent was depressed and felt powerless that his Conservative-skinhead-Nazi-KKK intimidation tactics that he and others who think like him had run it's course and did not work to discourage voter turnout for the newly re-elected President. When asked about what he thought of Nugents death, Obama once again took the high road and stated in his Florida Evan's from the 70's TV sitcom Good Times voice, "Damn, damn, damn!" Plans are being made by the family to bury Nugent in a cotton field once owned by slave owner, Willie Lynch.
Nugent was born and raised in Detroit, Michigan the home of rap giants Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and Eminem. But apparently he didn't pick up any humanity habits from his younger more socially diverse neighbors. In other words folks, Nugent was raised on the other side of the tracks where somebody (likely a snaggletooth relative or friend who thinks Rush Limbaugh is a human being) told him that because of his white skin, he was somehow superior to other races and therefore should be granted all of the rights, remedies and privileges of preference his great grandpappy and his pappy before him enjoyed. A family friend who spoke under the condition of anonymity said, "He just couldn't get over the fact that black people took baths."
Raised Catholic, Nugent like many other pistol toting Conservatives claimed to practice Christianity and said he attended church regularly. Usually that means that you believe in God and accept him as your Lord and savior. It also tends to mean that you believe that all men are created equal in the eyes of God and that you subscribe to unity not division. But we know when it comes to rednecks and backwoods hicks that passage is open to interpretation. Many of them believe in the justice system only when Lady Justice's eyes are wide open to accepting racial profiling and discrimination. That's why almost every single person who identify themselves as Republican believed that Trayvon Martin deserved to die and that George Zimmerman should not have been arrested and subsequently convicted. It's not that they cared about ole Georgie. They hate him too. He's half Mexican you know? They wanted him to go free because they didn't want to set another precedent for a non-black having to do hard time or getting juiced for smoking a nigger. So Zimmerman was just a pawn in their race game. Nothing more, nothing less.
It amazes us how Teddy boy tried to come off as responsible, good natured and upright but in the late 1960s, prior to his first marriage, Nugent fathered a son and a daughter whom he walked out on and gave up at infancy. Wow! Mr. Patriotic also hooked up with a seventeen-year-old named Pele Massa when he was thirty and got her parents to sign documents to make himself her legal guardian, an arrangement Spin Magazine call one of the "100 Sleaziest Moments In Rock" and a criminal offense in the U.S. at the time that should have made him a sex offender "on paper" also.
This was the same guy who suggested that we announce the shooting of illegal immigrants on site to scare them into getting out of America. His convictions lends insight to the type of person he would've been if he could have gotten away with murdering people he didn't like. God forbid they shot back though because everybody knows Nugent was a draft dodging coward. I have never known anyone who talked so much about killing and guns who when given an opportunity to kill, ran in the opposite direction like a yellow belly hound dog with no teeth. Trust me, we all know why he avoided the Vietnam draft; he knew that the people he would be shooting at would be shooting back. That my friend is what keeps all bullies in their place. The probable threat of danger and loss of life goes further than any law, protest or rally could travel to convince a coward of being civil and obedient in regards to respecting the rights of others.
I would like to say that the coolest thing about another racist being put in the ground is that they can no longer spread their message of hate. But the absolute coolest thing about a world without the scum known as Ted Nugent is we don't have to listen to any more of his wack ass music.
Yo Ted, I heard you had a hearing problem so I don't think you'll mind me playing my new song and video "Hoodiez" at your funeral. It's a song inspired by the murder of Trayvon Martin and the injustice that followed. Consider it the dagger in your chest. I was going to say heart but you never had one ... So long Suckaaa!
