"Ted Nugent blames Connecticut shooting on political correctness, moral decline in editorial".

1:13 am - 12/20/2012
With the issue of gun control more hotly debated than ever following Friday’s tragedy in Newtown, Conn., it should be no surprise that Ted Nugent – a board member of the National Rifle Association and staunch Second Amendment supporter – would make his opinion known.

The rocker, outdoorsman and political activist penned an editorial for the Washington Times in which he blamed the massacre that left 20 children dead on political correctness out of control and a decline in moral values.

“The ugly and dangerous truth is that we live in an embarrassing, politically correct culture that exalts and rejoices in the bizarre; aggressively promotes an ‘anything goes’ value system; and vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity,” Nugent wrote.

“We’ve embraced a culture of contempt that attacks the very institutions that make for a healthy and strong society, and then we’re shocked when it spirals out of control. The only thing I’m shocked about is that anybody is shocked.”

Nugent also accused anti-gun proponents of using the mass shooting to further their agenda.

“Some blabbermouths already are using the Connecticut school massacre to promote their anti-gun agenda even though more gun laws won’t prevent a psychotic from getting a gun and killing us,” he wrote.

Nugent, a Detroit native who owns property in Jackson County, isn’t the only Michigan-born celebrity known for his political opinions to weigh in on the subject.

Just gonna re-post my Mothership comments:

(1) The commentary on "family" and "values" is a little absurd when the shooter is allegedly cut from the exact same cloth as pro-gun wackjobs LIKE Ted Nugent (i.e., hyper-paranoid, "family"-obsessed, anti-government gun freaks). Any discussion on gun ownership should be a referendum on the sketchiness of Ted Nugent's demographic of gun owners, which I gather he knows, and is why he's working so hard to blow smoke up everyone's asses with this evasive, unrelated shit.

(2) I hereby declare the definition of "political correctness" to be: the thirsty attempts of entitled well-to-do straight white men to evade brutally honest assessments of their political and societal inadequacies. Because no one is more "politically correct" than white dudes like Nugent who cant stand to have their ideas challenged by anyone who thinks differently from them.

I'm pleased to know that conservatives are blaming the murder of KIDS on everything else, as though they're justifying it and saying that it's okay.

This is what conservatism has boiled down to, and this is why they will never win another presidential election.

I wish I could be as optimistic about this as you are.

as an extra level of BS, conservatrolls are dogpiling Discovery Channel's FB page because they canceled some show called "American Guns" and are screaming at them about how they're "caving to the lib****s". :eyeroll:

Why is this nutjob still relevant?
iamrosalita 20th-Dec-2012 01:45 pm (UTC)
He was never relevant to begin with and he needs to STFU and GTFO.
a_phoenixdragon 20th-Dec-2012 07:14 am (UTC)
Shut up, Teddy...you make me tired, dude. UGH.
shortsweetcynic 20th-Dec-2012 01:52 pm (UTC)
YES. i still think he's a blowhard piece of shit, but i can't even get fired up anymore. i saw this in my flist and just sighed.

"oh - you're still talking?"
homasse 20th-Dec-2012 07:19 am (UTC)
Yeah, most people wouldn't know you if they passed you on the street, Ted, so, good luck with the "pressed to stay relevant" thing.

Ted Nugent lecturing on morality is fucking hilarious. This is the same guy who had a seventeen year old girlfriend who lived with him. He spent the 70's and most of the 80's fucking every young female he could find. But other people's moral failings caused everything wrong in the world.
djinndustries 20th-Dec-2012 09:24 am (UTC)
I'm not sure that what you're describing is, from an absolute standpoint, questionably moral. Honestly, if more people spent time fucking every young ____________ they could find (appropriately protected from disease and pregnancy), the world would probably be a better place.
tabaqui 20th-Dec-2012 11:38 am (UTC)
For fuck's sake. Shut up. Shut up. Shut up.
bleed_peroxide 20th-Dec-2012 12:53 pm (UTC)
SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU GODDAMN SHITSTAIN.

he blamed the massacre that left 20 children dead on political correctness out of control and a decline in moral values.

This is why I hate conservatives. To me and other intelligent humans everywhere, a decline in moral value is when you have a fucking lunatic murder innocent schoolchildren. A decline in moral value is NOT when people go against what privileged white men think. Funny how conservatives blame liberals for tragedies like this when they're the ones claiming we need to make guns more easily accessible to civilians and, essentially, doing nothing to address that this is a huge part of the problem.

Fuck this guy.

Seriously. Wasn't it Ted that said if Obama won reelection, he'd either be in jail or dead? Still waiting on that.

Nugent's entire personality and existence revolves around being unbearably obnoxious and shooting as many holes into things as possible.

Pardon me for not listening to a single fucking word he has to say, ever.
angelofdeath275 20th-Dec-2012 03:09 pm (UTC)
When is the shooter responsible for the shooting
girly123 20th-Dec-2012 03:59 pm (UTC)
When they're not white.
igglepoof 20th-Dec-2012 03:18 pm (UTC)
Maybe in their perfect world instead of fire extinguishers behind glass we should have assault rifles.

Oh Michigan, I love you but damn you sure produce some real asshats :(
mollywobbles867 20th-Dec-2012 03:33 pm (UTC)
Why aren't you in jail or dead yet, Ted? Obama was reelected.
sophiaserpentia 20th-Dec-2012 03:37 pm (UTC)
It hasn't been a year yet, so I'd say give it some more time.

Rush Limbaugh hasn't moved to Costa Rica either, afaik. All hat and no horse, these blowhards.
kalikahuntress 20th-Dec-2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
I thought Nugent was supposed to be dead or in jail since Obama got re-elected. Why hasn't he gotten on that, I would like 2013 and going forward to be Nugent free please.
ljtaylor 20th-Dec-2012 04:14 pm (UTC)
so, so far it has been debated that this shooting is the fault of:

1. the school (for employing women)
2. atheists
3. the shooter's mother
4. people who don't own guns/don't fire guns
5. mental illness

Are we missing something here? like, idk, the person who pulled the trigger or something maybe?
betray802 20th-Dec-2012 11:42 pm (UTC)
6. Not being able to use the King James Bible to beat defenseless children over the head. (Oh, if these idiots only knew about their precious James II.)
7. The gays.

Shit himself to get out of the draft, then boasted that if only he'd gone to Vietnam he would've killed so many people. Friendly reminder.

Spoiler Alert: When anyone talks about "upholding cultural traditions" or "preserving American society" or "promoting a strong and healthy society" it's actually code for "let's go back to the 1940s, before anyone but straight white Christian males had any rights".
wikilobbying 20th-Dec-2012 08:20 pm (UTC)
riiiight, those traditional moral values

you would know a lot about that, wouldn't you, ted? given you were so determined to get with a 17 year old (while you were 30 and still married, you friggin' creep) that you had her parents sign over legal guardianship to you so you'd have her living with you.

ahh the traditional, "moral" values of straight white cis men.
