Ted Nugent Calls Native American Protesters “Unclean” - Again

The Nuge isn’t entertaining anyone
Wingnuts • Views: 21,682

Racist former rock star Ted Nugent is at it again, using Nazi-like language to describe native American protesters at his concerts: Ted Nugent Previews His Appearance at Toledo Blade Concert by Attacking “Stinkyass” American Indian Protestors.

On August 7, Nugent took to his Facebook page to hype his “Rib-Off” appearance, but also to argue that American Indians upset about land being taken from them by white settlers need to learn about the American Dream.

Nugent wrote, “WE ARE ON OUR JET NOW HEADING FOR TOLEDO RIBFEST JAM AFTER AN INSANE INCREDIBLE OUT OF BODY ULTRAROCKOUT at the Full Throttle Saloon in Sturgis SD! Simply astonishing gig! 4 stinkyass unclean dipshit protestors that admitted they hate me AND ALL WHITE PEOPLE THAT STOLE THEIR LAND BULLSHIT!! See, it aint me they hate, they hate all Americans that produce & live the American Dream. Simply insane!”

The protestors that Nugent attacked as “stinkyass unclean dipshit[s]” were reportedly from the United Urban Warrior Society in Rapid City, SD.

Nugent, in case you missed our earlier post, has been a guest on the openly white supremacist radio show The Political Cesspool. Which may not come as a big shock after stories like this one.

He thinks because he hunts with a bow he has a deep connection with the technologically backward indigenous population who have to hunt to survive and still live in teepees.

///Remember folks, that isn’t my attitude, just what I imagine the Nugenics to be, based on an educated guess.

So when does Nugent get the GOP presidential nomination?

If the GOP loses badly in 2016 with a relatively mainstream candidate, the path to Nugent 2020 (or worse) would seem to be open.

The KISS frontman, who is himself the owner of a Los Angeles-based Arena Football League team, was asked to weigh in on Redskins owner Dan Snyder’s defense of the team name and used slurs to draw a line at what he considered offensive.

I thought Paul Stanley was the frontman.

KISS was pretty cool in the 70s; I saw them live as kid in 1977 at The Forum in Inglewood, and it was a good show. Cheap Trick was the opening act.

But their heyday was short-lived; after a bizarre 1978 TV movie they made, I was pretty much done with them.

Robert Doar, former commissioner of the New York City Human Resources Administration, administered welfare programs to New York’s neediest during the height of the Great Recession.

He made controversial moves that helped New York slash the number of people on welfare from more than 1 million to fewer than 350,000.

In a paper for the American Enterprise Institute, Doar outlines some of the difficult lessons he learned about how to tackle welfare, and what the nation as a whole could learn from his experience reforming New York’s welfare programs.

The biggest lesson, he says, is that people need to take responsibility for their own future. That means social workers need to resist the urge to take credit for their clients’ success, and it means welfare recipients need to get a job.

get a job!! brilliant solution!!

why didn’t i think of that…

In his chapter in AEI’s “Poverty in America,” Doar writes, “Given Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s support for policies such as paid sick leave and a higher minimum wage - both of which make workers more expensive for businesses to employ - I am doubtful that job growth will remain as strong as it has been. As a result of these changes, the number of people classified as poor may grow in New York City.”

and just why was this corporatist reaganite in charge of nyc welfare??

50 Comfortable, Fortunate, Oppressed, White Person  Aug 7, 2014 1:43:21pm

Well, to be fair, he calls all left wingers unclean and stinky asses because we are supposedly hippie commies who don’t wash.
Ironically, one of the things the Native Americans were famous for was their fastidious cleanliness and daily bathing. Europeans were happy to bath once in the fall and then again after winter. The more extremist religious elements of the Europeans, who didn’t believe in bathing almost at all, thought it was because they were trying to wash away their Pagan guilt and shame.
Whites who intermarried and became citizens of NA nations, quickly learned to take to regular bathing, and when they would return to Colonial towns for trade or visits, they couldn’t bare to stay long because the smells from the people, that they never noticed before, made them sick. Native Americans would put a type of menthol or spearmint salve in their nostrils when they had to meet with Europeans, so as not to offend them by showing disgust!

I don’t know what they would have thought of a man who shit his pants to get out of war. Oh wait, yeah I do. Hehehe.

In Color: Clock Strikes Ten, So Good To See You, Big Eyes, Southern Girls

Heaven Tonight: On Top Of The World, California Man (not an original, written by the great Roy Wood), Stiff Competition, How Are You, High Roller

I recommended tunes that (for the most part) didn’t show up on the ‘Live At Budokan’ album, even though all of that album consists of tracks from these albums (with the exception of the re-make of Fats Domino’s ‘Ain’t That A shame.’)

It’s all good, even when the production is kinda crappy.

Go listen to the stuff before Surrender. Great American rock with a really dark edge, dressed up in happy melodies. Really good stuff.

The first Cheap Trick album is still on my popular play list. I love the rawness of it. And Robin Zander is one of the all time great rock vocalists. He can go from bubblegum sweet to bad ass growl all in one word.

I got to see them on their first US tour at the Agora here in Columbus. They had family members (yes, someones mothers) out front passing out Cheap Trick logo buttons like campaign buttons.

Rick and Robin were standing right by the table I and my friends were at. One of my buddies was mocking Rick for being goofy and Robin for being a pretty boy. Later when they walked onstage and launched into “‘ello kiddies” his jaw dropped and he admitted he fell for the Cheap Trick of having two goofballs and two pretty boys in a band that absolutely kicked his ass.

It was a beautiful moment!

Saw ‘em on the Heaven Tonight (Surrender) tour too.

I always liked Bun E. Carlos, too. Seemed so cool on the drums.

There’s controversy regarding Bun - he’s had back problems for years, and when he couldn’t tour Neilsen hired his son Daxx to play drums, and Daxx has moved into the spot permanently.

Bun sued them over it. There have been other tensions in the band between Bun and Robin, if what I’ve heard is true.

But Daxx does a good job. They’re still a killer live band.

Rand Paul: GOP Can’t ‘Completely Flip’ On Gay Marriage

There was a discussion at the tail end of the last thread about water levels in Mono Lake as the result of the current drought. The husband and I drove by it on this past trip and it was interesting to compare current images to my first trip in March of 2008.

This was a hot spring on the shore of the lake.

We attempted to find the same hot spring this time.

This was our best guess on the candidate for the spring.

And somewhere I have one of his picks, proudly caught at a concert about 25 years ago.

I saw them a few years ago, on a tour sponsored by Marlboro (!), in a small club on LI. When they got to the part about KISS records in ‘Surrender, Neilsen tossed out a cover for ‘Music For Hangovers’ with CT picks taped all around the outside of the cover. I grabbed it and got it signed by all four of them.

It still hangs proudly on my office wall.

Not often that a politician is so naked with an admission that the party has causes in order to get elected, rather than because those causes are actually right, but he’s not wrong.

When (not if) the modern GOP eventually has to have a come to Jesus moment about gay marriage, they will absolutely lose a large chunk of their base.

And he can still do it with no problem. Even ‘If You Want My Love,’ with it’s keening bridge, is still pulled off magnificently.

The crazy part is that Zander was a heavy smoker for years. On the Marlboro show I referenced upthread, when the band was doing instrumental breaks, Robin would go side stage, light up a Red and smoke it until it was time for him to come out and sing again. Unreal.

“Then Rand Paul — he’s Pearl Jam. Comes from the same place, the songs are really catchy, can really pack the stadiums, though it’s not quite Nirvana.

“Ted Cruz? He’s Stone Temple Pilots. Tries really hard to sound like Pearl Jam, never gonna sound like Nirvana. Really good voice, great staying power — but the whole is not greater than the sum of its parts.”

If you listen to Crazy Uncle Liberty (!), Senator Aqua Buddha, or their disciples for five minutes, you find yourself nodding in agreement with almost everything they say. At precisely the 5:01 mark, however, the person to whom you’re listening will say something that detaches the entire conversation from the plane of physical reality and sends it sailing off into the ether.”

Or just shoots her - at that point, he’s got his gun out; it would be better than even odds that he could get the shot off before she realizes he’s pulling the trigger. Shoot her in the hand/arm, disarm her, done.

From the link:

Raymond Burse, who leads Kentucky State University as interim president, will give up $90,000 of his salary so that 24 low wage workers on campus can earn $10.25 an hour.
“I did it to bring the lowest wage employees up to a level where I think they should be,” said Burse. “”These are the people who work hard and make the place look good.”
Many of the workers including custodians, grounds keepers, and clerical workers were earning the minimum wage in Kentucky, which is $7.25 an hour.
Burse, whose annual income is about $350,000, said he thought for about eight weeks about the decision to take the pay cut and then brought it to the university’s board. He described the board’s reaction as “shock’ when they found out.

The Kentucky native explained that he learned the value of hard work as a young man, when he worked several minimum wage jobs including as a caddy and a tobacco cutter.
Burse was the youngest of 13 children, whose father only made it through 3rd grade and mother only through 7th.
“My parents taught me that with hard work and education, you can excel in the world,” said Burse, who went on to graduate from Harvard Law School and become a Rhodes Scholar.

Out of the blue one day, after my dentist finished cleaning my teeth he decided to explain to me how to remove a tooth myself if I ever, you know, “got lost in the woods or after a nuclear war”.
Find a pair of good gripping pliers, then make sure your tooth is dry because they are very slippery, then start rocking the pliers back and forth as you slowly pull out the tooth. Voila!
He told me to never knock them out because that could break the tooth or cause even worse problems.
To this day I have no idea why he told me this.

I don’t know. Based on the number of people it follows, it’s pretty un-ambitious for a spambot.

re: #251 Bubblehead II

Hate to rain on your parade, but I don’t go to a Doc to have stitches removed. Clean area with alcohol, clip knot with pair of nail scissors, pull thread, coat with 3 in 1 antibiotic, cover with pad until holes seal, about 24 hrs. Simple.

You don’t want to know about tooth extraction, because I do that as well.

I get that, but then my wife also makes the point that he wouldn’t have had to do the stitches removal himself if he’d had Obamacare.

If we’re going with the nineties, Ted Cruz would be more like Ratt or White Lion. Completely oblivious to the massive change happening right under his nose. I also imagine he would enjoy teasing his hair and wearing eyeliner and spandex pants.

re: #269 Comfortable, Fortunate, Oppressed, White Person

Out of the blue one day, after my dentist finished cleaning my teeth he decided to explain to me how to remove a tooth myself if I ever, you know, “got lost in the woods or after a nuclear war”.
Find a pair of good gripping pliers, then make sure your tooth is dry because they are very slippery, then start rocking the pliers back and forth as you slowly pull out the tooth. Voila!
He told me to never knock them out because that could break the tooth or cause even worse problems.
To this day I have no idea why he told me this.

Because someday (hopefully never, but…) you will be relieved to have that knowledge.

Side cutters and a hammer?

90 degree serrated pliers. Please note. Not used until tooth is wobbling around in jaw, causing pain and about ready to fall out anyway.

Barbaric? Maybe. But cheaper than going to a dentist to do something I am capable of doing myself.

re: #220 Comfortable, Fortunate, Oppressed, White Person

I read the article and still have no idea what he meant by that. Does he mean hunting or just going on a killing spree?

I’m telling myself it’s a banal statement about hunting. Because he said nice things about JD Souther and he’s touring with Herb Pedersen, and they’re two of my favorites.

Hey, wingnuts live in fantasy land 24/7—can’t I just have five minutes of unreality?

Creationism, America’s stuck on it:

Pinellas School Board candidate Ken Peluso wants creationism taught in public schools

A retired chiropractor and former chairman of the Early Learning Coalition of Pinellas, Peluso has raised the most money in the District 4 race. He also has endorsements from the Pinellas Classroom Teachers Association, Pinellas Educational Support Professionals Association, and the Pinellas Realtor Organization.

There’s a bit more to the story, but I had to search to find it:

School Board Forum Centers on Parental Involvement

District 4 candidates Beverly Billiris, John Nygren and Ken Peluso all are pushing to boost parental involvement, but they offered little insight into how to do that.

Billiris suggested involving community partners, like churches and other faith-based groups, to reach out to parents who need help managing “all those kids.” When asked about incorporating faith into schools, Billiris clarified that she isn’t suggesting faith leaders come into the schools, but rather just help with parental outreach outside the classroom.

Peluso, who was a little more staunch on the religion in schools topic - he said creationism should be taught in science classes - also suggested involving churches to reach parents.

“A group of us from church established a relationship with Eisenhower Elementary,” Peluso said. “We finally had a picnic at a local park - we had 600-700 people there.”

You don’t want to know about tooth extraction, because I do that as well.

I watched the pediatrician pull 3 stitches out of my kid with tweezers and a manicure scissors years ago. $20 copay and the EOB showed the practice was paid over $300 for the “surgery”.

I decided that from now on I was perfecty capable of removing stiches myself.

Maybe someone who has never done needlework or other fine motor work couldn’t do it safely, but really, it’s just not a dangerous thing.
