Cancel Ted Nugent for His Violence Against Animals

While I’m happy to hear that Ted Nugent’s concerts are being cancelled across the country because of his well-documented racist remarks and that the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence has a petition out to get his name off the list of headliners at an Ohio rock show, I’d like to see someone cancel him for his habitual violence against animals and his many blatantly speciesist statements.

Granted, Ted’s just an idiot. But to animals, he’s a dangerous idiot. From Meet the NRA.org, get a load of some of his hateful, illogical statements (presented here in chronological order of their idiotic appearance):

 

In a March 8, 2010 op-ed for the Washington Times, Nugent mocked high profile individuals who have been killed or injured by animals including, “Steve Irwin, brain-dead hippie grizzly bear neighbors, religious voodoo rattlesnake witch doctors, homosexual Las Vegas lion huggers, and the Orca handlers at Sea World.” Regarding his practice of riding a buffalo on stage during concerts, Nugent said, “I carried a 10mm handgun in my belt during those stage rides, just in case the beast decided to go buffalo on me. A quick 200-grain armor-piercing slug through the back of his head would have made the difference between a momentary increase in entertainment value and a few dozen or more trampled rock fans. I knew this, and I was prepared.”

On July 21, 2011, Nugent tweeted, “HumaneSocietyOfUnitedStates is vile criminal scam liars.”  

On April 14 2012, Ted Nugent signed a plea agreement with federal prosecutors, admitting that he had illegally shot, killed and transported a black bear in southeast Alaska in May 2009 and transported it in violation of the federal Lacey Act. Nugent agreed to a $10,000 fine and a two-year probation. He also agreed to pay Alaska $600 . After signing the agreement, Nugent advised fellow hunters, “ even when you are aghast at a maniac, inexplicable, illogical law, please abide by those laws at all costs .” According to Nugent, his prosecution for killing the black bear was the result of a “ witch hunt” inspired by his political activism. “ We are the people turning up the heat, and that’s why I’m being singled out by certain fish and game agencies and certain U.S. attorneys ,” he stated. Nugent then turned his attention to female Democrats in the House of Representatives…

On September 1, 2012, Nugent tweeted, “Did I mention how insane fun it is slaughtering pigs with machinegunsfrom helicopters? Cleanse the goodearth.”

On November 13, 2012, Nugent tweeted, “Since soulless animal rights fools hate nature I will kill many deer for them.”

In a March 2013 interview with Brett Winterble on Sirius XM radio, Nugent stated, “I took my machine gun in the helicopter—in the Texas hill country—me and my buddy ‘Pigman.’ His name is ‘Pigman’; I’m the swine czar. I killed 455 hogs with my machine gun. I did it for Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”

In a March 18, 2013 interview on a Lynchburg, Virginia talk radio show, Nugent stated, “When you have freaks like Bill Maher and the animal rights freaks, these brain-dead, doped up monsters, these mongers that think that they’re gonna tell Ted Nugent I can’t eat venison. Every time I hear the words ‘animal’ or ‘right’ in the same paragraph I kill more stuff.

In an August 13, 2013 radio interview on “The Mike Huckabee Show,” Nugent spoke about his hunting dog Gonzo, stating, “We literally hunt anywhere between 250 and 300 days a year. And you think Gonzo is good on ducks, you should see him on squirrels and doves and rabbits and woodcock and grouse. He really is a mystical, wonderful hunting dog.”

On October 25, Nugent tweeted, “Weirdos against hunting are against nature herself-pure veison [sic] forever

In a January 14, 2014 op-ed for Newsmax, Nugent asserted, “The whole global warming lie is a giant, international environmental scam and hoax designed to control people by instigating fear and panic. There is no global warming, only hot-air from Al Gore and his gaggles of Woodstock rejects who have made many millions by perpetuating something that just isn’t so.” Contrary to Nugent’s statement, global climate change is a phenomenon that is well-supported by research conducted by agencies such as the National Academy of Sciences, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.”

Oh, and who can forget the bold proclamation he made back on April 14, 2012 during a live interview at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting , “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year…”

Tell the Toledo Blade: Cancel Ted Nugent’s Appearance at your Festival

http://csgv.org/action/tell-toledo-blade-cancel-festival-appearance-ted-nugent/?subsource=fb

Ted NugentThe Toledo Blade newspaper is sponsoring a food and music festival in Maumee, Ohio this summer with a scheduled appearance by a known extremist: National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent.

In addition to being an adamant opponent of sensible gun laws, Nugent regularly makes headlines with his racist, misogynist, and threatening statements. In July 2013, Nugent said “The Black Problem” in America could be solved if African-Americans put their “heart and soul into being honest” and “law-abiding.” On January 17, 2014, he called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and “chimpanzee.”1

Mike Mori, the Blade‘s sales director and event director for the Northwest Ohio Rib-Off, has acknowledged the problems with Nugent, saying he “is not a fan of [Nugent's] politics.” “I wish the guy would just not say the things he does,” said Mori.  He clearly recognizes that the Blade made a bad call in hiring Nugent and seems torn about what to do. A strong show of opposition can sway him towards the right decision.

The Northwest Ohio Rib-Off webpage brags that “nothing goes better with savory BBQ than jamming, rib-bone in hand, to a rocking band.”2 Certainly, nothing goes worse with good food than the virulently racist rhetoric of a man who has no regard for the dignity or rights of others.

Tell the Toledo Blade: Cancel Ted Nugent’s appearance at your festival immediately.

Ted Nugent Doubles Down: Native Americans Who Canceled Concerts Are Smelly, Dirty Un-American People (AUDIO)

http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014/07/26/ted-nugent-doubles-down-native-americans-who-canceled-concerts-are-smelly-dirty-un-american-people-audio/

July 26, 2014

ted nugent
One would think that Ted Nugent would shut up considering his mouth is the very reason why Native American tribes are pulling the plug on his concerts. But he’s incapable of doing that. Instead, Nugent went on the radio and doubled down on insulting them and anyone else who criticizes him.

During an appearance on “The Lars Larson Show” on Thursday, Nugent repeated the nasty remarks he made earlier in the week when he called his critics, including his latest Native American critics, “unclean vermin” who don’t “qualify as people.”

“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” Nugent said earlier this week. “By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as people, but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people.”

“I call them unclean varmints, I’ve actually gone by them and I mean it, they’re hygiene-challenged, they actually stink, they’re dirty people, they’re unclean, they’re bused in to Connecticut and New Jersey and different places to protest a Ted Nugent concert but, Lars, they are so stoned or just brain dead, they actually wear their American Communist Party regalia, they’re not smart enough to take off their identification that they’re not really protesters, they’ve been paid and bussed in.”

Here’s the audio via Right Wing Watch.

The tribes who have canceled Ted Nugent concerts did so precisely because of these kinds of hateful racist tirades that the conservative rocker is known for. In fact, he’s now known more for that than he is for his terrible music.

The Coeur D’ Alene tribe of Worley, Idaho was the first to put the rabid redneck down. In a statement, the tribe said it “has always been about human rights — for decades, we have worked individually and as a Tribe to make sure that each and every person is treated equally and with respect and dignity.”

Then a day after his disgusting remarks, the Puyallup tribe of Tacoma, Washington made the decision to cut ties with Nugent.

The First Amendment gives people the right free speech, but I think racism is intolerable and not acceptable here,” Puyallup Tribal Council Vice President Lawrence W. LaPointe said in a statement. “We’ve been getting lots of complaints from the community and other organizations. I don’t want to take away his right to say what he wants to say, but we don’t need it here.

Despite rejections from Native American tribes, Nugent refuses to stop saying disgusting things about them and others who oppose him. Will more people and venues now boycott Nugent, or will they support him and give him a platform to screech from? Because anyone who willingly associates themselves with Nugent is associating themselves with racism, sexism, and hate. And in the age of social media, that’s a reputation no person or business should want to have following them around.

Ex Guns N’ Roses star Matt Sorum blasts Ted Nugent over hunting photo post

http://www.torontosun.com/2014/07/15/ex-guns-n-roses-star-matt-sorum-blasts-ted-nugent-over-hunting-photo-post

Former Guns N’ Roses star Matt Sorum has taken aim at fellow rocker Ted Nugent for68439_10151399495155861_1116657731_n his pro-hunting remarks.

Animal lover Sorum took offence to a photo he spotted of smiling Nugent standing next to a pre-teen boy who had just killed a groundhog, and took to Twitter.com to lash out at the Cat Scratch Fever hitmaker over the weekend.

The drummer wrote, “Hey @tednugent u are a sick individual, u are smiling too much for killing this animal. Something wrong w u (with you), poor kid.”

Nugent has made a name for himself protecting the rights of hunters, insisting they are vital to manage wildlife.

In an interview earlier this year, he attacked animal-rights activists opposed to hunting and killing, calling them “numb-nuts”.

Sorum is currently spearheading the International Fund For Animal Welfare’s campaign for elephant conservation, and last month wrote an open letter to his fellow musicians urging them to support a new U.S. strategy for minimizing America’s role in global elephant poaching.

Citing ‘racist views,’ tribe cancels Ted Nugent show

30973_4756818474045_484772904_n

WORLEY, Idaho (AP) — A Native American tribe has canceled an Aug. 4 concert by Ted Nugent at its casino.

The Coeur d’Alene Tribe on Monday said that the cancellation of the concert at the casino in Worley was because of what it called the rocker’s “racist and hate-filled remarks.”

The tribe says it booked Nugent without realizing he espoused “racist attitudes and views.” The tribe did not detail which of Nugent’s specific views it opposes.

Officials for Nugent’s music management company were out of the office on Monday and not available for comment.

Nugent in the past has referred to President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel.” Nugent later apologized “for using the street fight terminology of subhuman mongrel.” But he maintained that Obama was a “liar” violating the Constitution.

Gee, I wish that terrible Ted Nugent had written the forward to my book–NOT! I’m sure Ted wrote (in Crayon, no doubt) a fitting lead-in to the book of drivel pictured above.

Sub-headed A Theology of Hunting from Genesis to Revelation, the author makes claims such as: “If a person looked to Scripture and paid particular attention to the passages within the Bible that address the topic of hunting, then they’d walk away thinking not only is hunting animals tolerated but it is endorsed by God. And that’s exactly what this little book is about: proving that God, from Genesis to Revelation, is extremely cool with hunters and hunting. I’ll go out on a biblical limb and claim right off the bat that you cannot show me, through the balance of the Bible, that the God of the Scripture is against the responsible killing and the grilling of the animals He created.”

If you haven’t yet urped up your fill and you want to read more hate-speak from this sadist, feast your eyes on this bull crap: http://news360.com/article/239678297

Meanwhile, for some truly enlightening and uplifting reading: http://www.earth-books.net/books/exposing-the-big-game

the use of hounds, traps, and bear baiting. Some animal rights groups claim that these methods are inhumane, unsporting, and unsustainable. Earlier this year the advocacy group Mainers for Fair Bear Hunting submitted nearly 80,000 signatures to put the issue of banning the three hunting methods on the November ballot. The organization notes that Maine is the only state in the nation to allow all three harvest methods.”

Look, doe-eyed Disney movie lover: the most effective way to keep bears away from your kids and grand-kids, your dogs, your plate of doughnuts on your outside deck and your refrigerator is to make them fear you – and the chief way to get that message across is to hunt, shoot and eat them.  Always legally of course.

Oh, and by the way, as I point out in my new book, Rise, Kill And Eat: A Theology of Hunting From Genesis to Revelation, animals are supposed to fear us according to this book called the bible.  Check it out …

“Then God blessed Noah and his sons, saying to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number and fill the earth. The fear and dread of you will fall on all the beasts of the earth, and on all the birds in the sky, on every creature that moves along the ground, and on all the fish in the sea; they are given into your hands. Everything that lives and moves about will be food for you. Just as I gave you the green plants, I now give you everything.’” Gen.9:1-3

Ted Nugent Was Paid $16,000 NOT to Appear At Local Event

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/21/ted-nugent-appearance-canceled_n_5009248.html

This Town Paid Ted Nugent $16,000 To NOT Appear At A Local Event
The Huffington Post | by Paige Lavender 03/21/2014

Ted Nugent just made big bucks to not show up somewhere.

The town of Longview, Texas paid Nugent $16,000 to not appear at the town’s Fourth of July Festival. According to KLTV, a city spokesman said Nugent was “not the right feel for this kind of community event.”

The city had reached a verbal agreement with Nugent, scheduling the rocker as the headliner who would play inside the Maude Cobb Convention and Activity Center during the town’s Independence Day celebration. To break that agreement, the town paid Nugent half of his guaranteed performance fee of $32,000 from Maude Cobb’s annual budget.

The move comes amid criticism of comments Nugent made about President Barack Obama in January 2014, calling him a “subhuman mongrel.” Nugent, who campaigned with Texas Attorney General and gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott amid the controversy, apologized for those comments in February.

Abbott said he was moving on from the controversy over Nugent in late February, but his ties to the rocker remain a prominent talking point of both sides of the governor’s race. Abbott’s rival, Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis (D), called the Attorney General’s embrace of Nugent an “insult,” while former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin (R) cited the rocker in her endorsement of Abbott.

“If he is good enough for Ted Nugent, he is good enough for me!” Palin wrote on her Facebook page.

The situation with Longview is not unique. Nugent was removed from a concert lineup at a prominent military base in 2012 after saying he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama were re-elected that year.

Ted Nugent pushes bear hunting in N.B.

Outspoken, gun-toting American rocker Ted Nugent is promoting the spring bear hunt in New Brunswick with his Sunrize Safaris.

The website tednugent.com offers hunters a chance to go to New Brunswick and shoot a trophy black bear

Nugent has hunted bear in New Brunswick before.

Ted Nugent has hunted black bear in New Brunswick in the past. (CBC)

He chronicles one such trip on the archerytalk.com blog in 2010 in a post titled: “Hi Spirit: New Brunswick Bruins. For a rockin’ good time, try for a far-North spring blackie.”

On that occasion, Nugent arranged for a bear hunting trip in New Brunswick after his band “rocked the house royal with Lynayrd Skynyrd (sic) in Barrie, Ontario, outside Toronto, Canada’s number one cosmopolitan megacity,” the blog post says,

Nugent was hunting with Slipp Brothers Ltd. Hunting and Outfitting in Hoyt, south of Fredericton. On the third day of hunting, with daylight running short, Nugent encountered a bear.

“Right then a big black blob appeared 60 yards out in the dense boreal scrub,” wrote Nugent. “My heart pounded like a double live gonzo big bass drum gone Motor city Mad Man full-tilt boogie. I love when that happens.”

Now Nugent is offering others the chance to experience that feeling with a Sunrize Safari to New Brunswick from June 1-7 for “the bear hunt of a lifetime,” with Toby Nugent — Ted’s son — and Paul Wilson of Sunrize Safaris in camp.

The cost of the outing in $3,550 per hunter plus $184.19 for a licence.

A similar outing for bear hunting in Quebec near Malartic is also offered by the company at a cost of $3,500.

Bear hunting has been on the decline in New Brunswick in recent years.

In 2004, more than 3,600 non-residents purchased bear licences. Last year, that number had fallen to below 2,000.

Is Ted Nugent considering a run for the White House?

[In Case You Haven't Heard Yet...]

The “outdoorsman,” and Michigan native, is known for his guitar licks and long locks, but a recent photo posted to his wife Shemane Nugent’s Instagram account shows The Nuge with a short, conservative haircut. and no ponytail.

In a Washington Post interview, The Motor City Madman hinted at presidential ambitions.

Hi, I’m Ted Nugent. I have nine children from seven women, and I’m running for president.” Nugent takes a sip of water, having delivered his potential slogan. “Yeah, I’m thinking about it.”

The Detroit rocker is known for his political statements and during the 2012 presidential campaign, Nugent got into hot water for ominous comments related to the eventual re-election of president Obama.

The 64-year old Nugent still maintains a part-time residence in Jackson County. He considered running for governor of Michigan in 2006 and 2010.

Would you vote for Ted Nugent for president?

Yes No O Fuck No O Never in a Million Years O Not if Sarah Palin’s life depended on it
