NRA: Membership vs. Control

I post these images because I subscribe to Occupy the NRA and they come across my Facebook feed. This particular one must have been compiled by Occupy the NRA. Sometimes they share memes created by other organizations.

1. You're too Polite

Media Matters presents NRA's Ted Nugent's 10 most inflammatory comments.
10. Tucson "Conservatives Should Turn Up The Rhetoric".. 6 dead 19 injured, including horrific injuries to Rep. Giffords (D-AZ).. {nugent} "xpose, isolate eliminate liberals and their fuzzy-headed policies" "do America a favor and crush liberalism."
9. Democratic Party Is A "Modern-Day Slave Master" To "Poor, Unemployed."

8. Nugent criticized NBA for fining Kobe Bryant for using a gay slur..Nugent further wrote that "if the NBA had any true gay convictions, the NBA should host a Homosexual Night" during which "homosexuals could come down on the court, hold hands and prance around the court to music by the Village People. The NBA could then give each homosexual a pink basketball as a symbol of solidarity."
7. Nugent repeatedly drawn controversy for wearing shirts emblazoned with the Confederate battle standard. 2000 performance in SCarolina, Nugent "those politically correct (profane name) can take the flag down, but I am going to wear it forever."

6. Watching Police Pepper-Spray Protesters Is "Good For My Conservative Soul." "Occupy stooges on parade: It's fun watching Democrats getting hauled off to jail,".. the "hearty laugh" he had after "watching the cops pounce on and pepper-spray a few Occupy stooges and then drag the dirtballs off to jail in shackles." "good for my conservative soul and gold for my sense of humor."
5. Anyone Who Says "Gun Control" Should Be Jailed. May 2011, Nugent at NRA's meeting,"if it was up to me, if you uttered the word 'gun control,' we'd put you in jail."

4. 1994 Nugent of Hillary Clinton: "You probably can't use the term `toxic cunt' in your magazine, but that's what she is.. bitch is nothing but a 2-bit whore for Fidel Castro."
3. 2000 Nugent defended anti-gay comments by then-Atlanta pitcher hhhh, saying "I got to tell you, guys that have sex with each others' anals cavities - how can we offend guys that have anal sex? Don't you think that might offend some of us who think that's despicable?"

2. Aug2010, Nugent"the Muslim community is being tremendously rude and stupid for wanting to build a mosque so close to Ground Zero in NY City." He also wrote that "If Islam is the religion of peace, then I'm a malnourished, tofu-eating anti-hunter," "Islam is no more a peaceful religion than Jim Jones was a Christian prophet." "ot all Muslims are religious whacks who deserve a bullet," but stated that "the statistics are alarming."
1. Obama Is "A Piece Of Shit" Who Should "Suck On My Machine Gun." Aug 2007 while brandishing what appeared to be two assault rifles, Nugent "hey Obama, you might want to suck on one of these, you punk,""hey Obama, he's a piece of shit, I told him to suck on my machine gun.""I said, 'hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch." Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-CA) "might want to suck on my machine gun," ..Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), "ride one of these you worthless whore."

http://mediamatters.org/blog/2012/02/15/nra-spokesman-ted-nugents-top-10-inflammatory-c/184266

This is one of the guys calling the shots at the nra? Rather than usher this rightwing cretin out the door the NRA points to Ted Nugent with pride. Contrast with Paula Deen who evidently used n-word, admitted to but says not maliciously & is remorseful, & was fired by a couple backers..
Hmmm, this post could get hidden as too harsh. Don't blame the messenger please.

2. RW nutjob's top ten list needs revision

Media Matters presents NRA's Ted Nugent's 10 most inflammatory comments. 10. Tucson "Conservatives Should Turn Up The Rhetoric".. 6 dead 19 injured, including horrific injuries to Rep. Giffords (D-AZ).. {nugent} "xpose, isolate eliminate liberals and their fuzzy-headed policies" "do America a favor and crush liberalism."

I think media matters is gonna have to displace one of those 'top ten inflammatory comments' by ted nugent, to include this one circa july 24,2013:

Conservative rocker {NRA bd member} Ted Nugent is still railing against Trayvon Martin .. this time extending his attacks to Stevie Wonder, who has spearheaded a boycott of Florida and other states with “Stand Your Ground” laws.
Appearing on Boston radio show..“So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder. Are you kidding me?”
“How brain-dead do you have to be?” Nugent asked. “How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clear-cut case where all the evidence, from the DOJ, from the FBI, from the army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin?”
.. Nugent said he would “pray” for “Stevie Wonder and all these other numnuts who think that Trayvon Martin’s life is more important than the tens of thousands of slaughtered blacks at the hands of blacks.” Nugent, who is evidently a fan of Wonder’s music, asked, “How do you go from being one of the most soulful people in the world to being absolutely soulless?”
Last week, Nugent penned an op-ed, in which he referred to Trayvon Martin as an “enraged black man-child” and a “Skittles hoodie boy.”

4. I'm thinking that you have to have a brain first to be brain dead.

 

Nugent can't claim someone is brain dead, he doesn't have a brain, what he has is shit for brains.

6. Stevie Sue?

daily kos: Stevie Wonder should Sue Nugent for Defamation
Speaking to right-wing talk show host.. NRA board member Ted Nugent declared that musicians like Stevie Wonder, who plan to boycott the state of Florida in the wake of George Zimmerman’s acquittal, are brain-damaged from a lifetime of drug abuse and must not know what they are doing. “When you live in a fog of denial, usually inspired by a substance abuse — you know with all the lies about dope being a victimless crime, I think you’re listening to the victims of this dopey crime, because their brains are fried,” he said. “They’re either fried on substance abuse, and all of them know who I’m talking about.”


Stevie Wonder, in an interview with The Guardian, says he owes his health and success to the fact that he stayed off drugs—after trying marijuana once and hating it. Asked how he's managed to stay on top while his “revolutionary soul peers” fell out of the spotlight, Wonder denies he's anything special. "First of all," he says, "I'm no better than the next person. But I've never had a desire to do drugs. When I was 21 I smoked marijuana, and I didn't like the way it made me feel. When I woke up the next morning I felt like I'd lost part of my brain." The revelation may disappoint fans of the Stevie Wonder medical marijuana strain, who likely wouldn't list “sensation of partial brain-loss” as a side effect.http://www.dailykos.com/story/2013/07/24/1226281/-Stevie-Wonder-should-Sue-Nugent-for-Defamation?detail=email

I doubt he will tho. Sounds sorta like me in college, about a dozen times lightly & tack on peer pressure as a frosh, quit for similar reasons after a few months.
