Pic Of The Moment: Where's The Media Outrage Now?



The U.S. Secret Service is looking into a violent rant by "Catch Scratch Fever" rocker Ted Nugent in which he denounced President Barack Obama and his top advisers as "evil" and urged National Rifle Association members to help "chop their heads off in November."

"I'll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said. "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Nugent, speaking at the organization's annual gathering over the weekend, praised NRA members but warned that if they did not "get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don't even know what you're made out of."

"If the coyote's in your living room, pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him," he said. He also denounced the administration as "criminals" and said a Democratic victory in November would mean "we'll be a suburb of Indonesia next year" — an apparent reference to Obama's boyhood time there.

Romney sought Nugent's endorsement

It was on a phone call with the candidate earlier today that Nugent gave his blessing. He talked to Romney by phone while he was at a sporting goods store in Michigan "celebrating the orgy of guns and ammos and bows and arrows and camouflage clothing and hunting and fishing and outdoor family supplies."

Before endorsing him, Nugent demanded that Romney pledge there would be no new gun laws or restrictions on Second Amendment rights in his administration. Romney obliged. Nugent also warned Romney about the "out of control" U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

"These are not Ted Nugent demands," he said. "They're logic demands. They're 'we the people' demands. They're right over wrong, good over bad."

distinguish them from Nugent's to let Mitt off the hook. We need to push back with this kind of slogan.

7. Oh come on, who cares about assasinating a president when you're insulting a wealthy housewife....



(and for the secret service who probably reads this stuff there's in that subject line!)

And to be honest, I highly doubt Nugeant would do anything as sick as assasinate a president. But what I do worry is some lone wolf out there who is filled with hate in their hearts will see the comments that Ted has made and think 'Geez if the Nuge says it's ok then I'm gonna do it'. Just like that person who shot Gabby Giffords.

13. Your point is right on! Assasination occurs first in the minds of men.

To some guys Ted is an idol/role model. They cannot differentiate between talk & action.
Ted's threat should not be underestimated as public figures have a responsibility as role models.
Everyone, esp law enforcers, know there are plenty of nutters out there just waiting to fulfill a Ted
Nugent fantasy.

It will only taken out and waved around when it benefits them.

I've had it with CNN pretending to be the news organization that plays it down the middle. They have been playing up the shitstorm over Hilliary Rosen's comments for almost a week now. Their bullshit is really getting sloppy and obvious.

12. Someone should tell Nugent & Media Millionaires that no one wants their stuff. Violence is not

necessary. Everything they have or they can get, they can keep. They only need to PAY UP.

They're so fucked up they don't know that people are NOT interested in taking away what is theirs. We don't want STUFF. They and their possessions are safe from us, so the violence that they promote and SUPPORT, directly or indirectly, IS murder.

Almost everyone just wants Nugent and the Media Millionaires and those for whom they work OFF OF OUR BACKS, politically and economically, so that we can live our own lives.

They can keep their stuff and what they should do is to pay the actual price of their wealth, instead of pretending that the costs associated with producing lesser wealth are equal to the costs of producing quantitatively, and hence, qualitatively, extremely DIFFERENT levels of wealth.

Money is a PRIVATE resource that is absolutely fungible within their PRIVATE circles and absolutely concrete outside of their private reserves. They want it BOTH ways AND to be the SOLE arbiters of both private & public terms of our economic "agreements".

There has been a great deal of public credit extended to PRIVATE MONEY, but no one is going to re-possess what we have made possible. No one is going to nationalize their stuff, but now that people know more about how PRIVATE money is, we are demanding that money-moguls begin to PAY THEIR FARE SHARE for the public commons that ALL of us pay for, no more HANDOUTS that obfuscate the authentic costs of doing good business.

51. Republicans think highly of their couches

If a coyote were pissing on my couch my first thought would be, "good excuse to get another couch, I wanted a new one anyway." I'm not sure if I'd let me dog near a coyote. (This is a good time to Google how well dogs get along with coyotes) It's my understanding coyotes are pretty reclusive and (usually) harmless, so I don't think I'd kill one. I'd open the door and wait for it to leave in it's own good time. Then I'd go to work and have a great story to tell. I could buy one of those double doors and keep the bottom one closed.

I know I would not draw any analogy to the framework of our country with a comparison to sofas. It would be dangerous to allow our country to fall into the hands of people who prize their couches like complete idiots.
