Ted Nugent Blames Sandy Hook Shooting On Spiritually Bankrupt, Politically Correct Society

The Huffington Post | By Cavan Sieczkowski

Conservative rocker Ted Nugent believes the Newtown, Conn., shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School is the result of pervasive "spiritual bankruptcy" and a "politically correct" mentality in American culture.

Nugent penned a response to the Sandy Hook shooting, which left six school employees and 20 children dead, in an editorial for The Washington Times. In the piece, Nugent shifts blame from lax gun control, poor mental health programs, inadequate security at schools and violence in the media to the moral decay of society.

Via The Washington Times:

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.

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.

2. Back in the late 80's...

I watched this douchebag do some serious drugs at the recording studio I was at.
Always considered him the biggest fucking hypocrite on 2 feet.

11. Yeah, no shit.

I got confused when I read this paragraph. I thought it was written ABOUT him, not BY him:

4. Ted, crawl back under your rock and stop boring us with your neanderthal attitudes.

Moron.

7. The same Ted Nugent with lyrics like this:

You've been getting expend;
Scratching at my wall.
Suicidal misfit;
it's time you took your fall.

I've ducked a lot but like a thousand knives;
their cutting into you babe.
It happens to you everyday.

I was just a schoolboy;
doing as I please.
Young girls in the classroom;
they was putting on the squeeze.

16. I blame it on cowards like Ted.

Too much of a chickenshit to join the military during war. So paranoid and hateful he has to cling to the very same guns he was offered then. When he was offered a chance to use those guns against a real enemy, that would shoot back, he literally shit himself and pissed his pants to avoid the possibility. He not just a coward but a laughable shameful coward.

17. The most embarrassing thing about all this

Is once Ted Nugent was lucky and wrote semi ok song and played his guitar really really loud. Not good mind you just loud. I am a guitar player been playing since 1980 I have never once had the urge to even think about learning to play a Ted Nugent song. His one hit was not worth my time and the rest of his stuff was crap.

After that its been all down hill for the dude. He really needs to take his meds he is making no sense.

Me thinks Ted Nugent fried his brain with lots of acid, coke and booze back in the 70's when he thought he was a rock star. Because thats the type of life he has lead, the life of a wanna be rock star. The last time I checked those weren't exactly traditional societal values and customs. His type of lifestyle generally is usually the ones 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." Pot, kettle we are black!

What a loser. Wait isn't he supposed to be dead or something? Didn't he make some absurd rant after Obama won re-election?

21. Hey Nugent.

 

Don't you have some squatting to do before you get drafted to Afghanistan. I heard the FEMA camps are going to force Vietnam-era draft dodgers serve in Afghanistan and spell the real combat troops home in time for Christmas.

22. It's rather interesting that conservatives are the only ones I know who use the term "politically

correct" - as if they ever knew what that old 70's term means. . .

Besides, Nugent himself should be grateful if we live in such a "culture that exalts and rejoi8ces in the bizarre" - otherwise, he'd obviously have no career.

23. That's some powerful projection there. How can he NOT see he's describing himself?

The think I'm "shocked" most about is that Nugent finds the murder of 26 people to be "embarrassing".
