Ted Nugent Dubs Next Tour ‘Black Power 2013’

That’s one way to mark Black History Month: When Ted Nugent hits the road this year, he’s calling his tour “Ted Nugent Black Power 2013,” he writes on the conservative website World Net Daily.

In a column that describes “dirty Democrat politicians” as the enemies of black Americans, the right-wing rocker reels off a string of statistics he says demonstrate how ineffective Democratic policies, including Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal and Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, have been at helping African-Americans overcome poverty, crime and a lack of education.

“There is no doubt that my 2013 tour will be the best of my life,” he writes. “With world-class virtuosos paying tribute to our black heroes nightly, it is only fitting that this year’s tour is aptly titled, ‘Ted Nugent Black Power 2013.’ Say it loud: my music is black and I’m proud!

The rocker credited the president’s re-election last year to “pimps, whores and welfare brats,” and met with the Secret Service last year after describing his opposition to the president in violent terms.

Some context for this disgusting little stunt by Ted Nugent: he has appeared on the openly white supremacist radio show Political Cesspool not once, but several times.

Just another big talking Republican liar, like Rush Limbaugh

Suggestion:

How ‘bout we just use Spoogent to refer to him?

Then we could give him the affectionate diminutive : the spooge.

Don’t know ‘bout you, but it works for me….

A monster talent. In his own mind. “World Class Schmuck Tour For Suckers 2013” would be more apt. I’ll bet Allen “I Almost Got Brig Time” West is one of his “hero’s.” Maybe they can sing a duet. Get Mike “You’re A Burned Down House” Huckabee to murder the base. Call it, “I’m Stinky,and He’s Slimy.” Wankawankawankawankawank. WANK.

“I`m a fun guy, not a sexist or a racist. I use the word ni**er a lot because I hang around with a lot of ni**ers.”

Yeah, he’s the perfect person to celebrate Black History month.

Ted Nigent has appeared on the white supremacist radio show Political Cesspool more than once. That’s the only context you need for this article.

Apparently he’s worried that now that women are allowed into combat situations (which they already were, but will now have a more prominent role if I understand that whole deal correctly?) transsexuals, eunuchs, illegal aliens, real aliens (deploy the cylons!) and who knows what else will be allowed to fight, which will lead to the eventual destruction of the military. Or something.

But yes, it’s sexism of some form.

From comments in that article.

I think someone should tell all the teachers to take tomorrow and Friday off, with pay, and then come in on Monday to work with only 2 classes, and a 25% pay raise…. and then follow it with “just kidding, you’re fired” Now that would be funny.

NOM Ally And Ex-Gay Activist Compares Gay-Straight Alliances To KKK And Nazi Skinheads

Equality Matters follows Gagnon closely, and noticed this week some outrageous comments he made on Facebook about gay-straight alliances (GSA). Chambers suggested in a recent video that if Christian young people attend a school that has a GSA, they should attend its meetings to learn and listen from those who utilize such a resource. Gagnon thinks they might as well attend a “Klu Klux Klan” [sic] or Nazi Skinhead group or one that advocates for “women abusers”:

GAGNON: More ridiculousness by Alan Chambers of Exodus (will it ever end?): Christian young people should respond to a “gay-straight alliance” in public school by going to such meetings “not to speak but to serve and listen and to offer to help, finding common ground.” There is no “speaking the truth in love” here (Eph 4:15). So if there is a “polyamory appreciation” group or “prostitutes for Christ” group or Ku Klux Klan / Nazi Skinhead group of “women abusers advocacy society” at a public school, Christian students should go to such meetings, not speak, but serve and find common ground? How can sane evangelical Christians support any longer any organization led by Alan Chambers? The man has become as “useful” to homosexualist advocacy as naive Western leftists of the 1920s to 1950s who extolled the virtues of Leninist and Stalinist Russia were useful to these dictatorial regimes.

Keyes: Gay Rights Will Undo Laws Against Rape, Incest and Pedophilia

When not warning that President Obama is pushing gun safety laws in order to have Americans “slaughtered by the thousands and the hundreds of thousands,” Alan Keyes usually sticks to issuing dire warnings about gay rights.

Today in his column for WorldNetDaily, Keyes claims that if the government repeals laws discriminating against gays and lesbians then it will have to remove laws against rape, incest and pedophilia as well.

Man with high-powered rifles and ‘tank buster’ bullets arrested for posting liberal ‘hit list’

According to WCBS, 49-year-old Larry Mulqueen was arraigned on Thursday on charges of “making terroristic threats, illegally possessing weapons and harassment.”

Mulqueen’s landlady had tipped off police after she found a “hit list” posted on Facebook that threatened Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY), Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D-NY), Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY) and all members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

The Facebook posting said that all of the president’s follower were “traitor scum” and promised “death to them all.”

Nyack-Piermont Patch reported that police searched Mulqueen’s home and found two high-powered rifles, two bayonets, a sword, a knuckle knife, body armor and ammunition. Included in the 100 rounds of ammunition were 27 so-called “tank buster” .50 caliber armor-piercing shells.

Previous criminal convictions meant that it was illegal for Mulqueen to possess the weapons.

WTF: NYC School’s 4th Grade Homework Has Slavery Word Problems

A student teacher at P.S. 59 was horrified when she was told to photocopy and distribute a fourth grade homework assignment with “Slavery Word Problems” where the questions were “On a slave ship, there can be 3,799 slaves. One day, the slaves took over the ship. 1,897 are dead. How many slaves are alive?” and “One slave got whipped five times a day. How many times did he get whipped in a month (31 days)? Another slave got whipped nine times a day. How many times did he get whipped in a month? How many times did the two slaves get whipped together in one month?”

For those claiming Europe is so much more enlightened:

The ‘Lost War’ Against Racism In Soccer

Last week, AC Milan signed one of the world’s premier soccer players in Mario Balotelli, who called it a dream come true that he was joining Italy’s most prominent soccer club. A week later, that dream isn’t as beautiful. Not after an Italian news station caught Paolo Berlusconi, an AC Milan vice president and the younger brother of former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, calling Balotelli “negretto della famiglia,” which translates roughly to “the family’s little n—–.”

Balotelli, a black Italian, is no stranger to racism. During previous stints in Italy and at international club matches, fans have greeted him with monkey chants and bananas. Fans of one club banded together to tell him that “there are no black Italians.” But while Balotelli may be subject to the worst of racism, the kind that comes from his own countrymen and his own club, he’s hardly alone. Here’s a far-from-comprehensive timeline of racism in European soccer — just over the past month:

January 3: AC Milan’s Kevin Prince-Boateng, a Ghanaian, responds to racist chants from opposing fans by picking up the ball, punting it into the stands, and walking off the pitch. His teammates and opponents followed, and the match was called. Earlier in the game, fans assaulted Sulley Muntari, another Ghanaian, with monkey chants. “It’s not the first time in my life that I’ve heard these things, but I’m 25 now and I’ve had enough this bullshit,” Prince-Boateng, who threatened to walk off the field in future matches, said after the game.

January 29: Jozy Altidore, an African-American, faces monkey chants from fans of Dutch club FC Den Bosch during a club match in the Netherlands. Altidore shrugged off the chants, refused efforts from officials to stop the match, and played on. “It’s only going to make them stronger if we back down,” Altidore said afterward. “I just want to get on with it and play and win the game.” AZ Alkmaar, Altidore’s club, wins 5-0.

January 30: Barcelona’s Dani Alves, a black Brazilian, is the subject of racist chants in a Spanish cup match against rival Real Madrid. In a moment of brutal truth, a dejected Alves declares after the match that soccer’s long fight against racism is “a lost war.”

January 30: European soccer’s governing body fines three clubs — Italian club Lazio, English club Tottenham Hotspur, and Slovenian club NK Maribor, for fans’ racist and anti-Semitic chants during games in November. Lazio’s sanctions include one home game played behind closed doors with no fans in attendance.

January 31: Japanese player Yuki Nakamura quits his Slovakian club because of repeated racial abuse. Nakamura was frustrated because his teammates and club officials did little to protect or defend him.

February 5: FIFA, the sport’s international governing body, upholds sanctions against both Bulgaria and Hungary’s international teams for racist chants during World Cup qualifying matches. Both are forced to play one match behind closed doors, and FIFA warns that further incidents could result in expulsion from Cup qualifying.
