A week after he allegedly wore a confederate-flag shirt and made “racially insensitive” remarks at an inaugural rally for Texas governor Rick Perry, Ted Nugent has fired a crossbow shot into the crowded field of public discourse, penning an op-ed column for the Waco Herald-Tribune. And clearly, the man knows that he craft an engaging opening sentence:
I am absolutely high on a hi-octane cocktail of freedom, liberty, spirit, attitude, goodwill, defiance and positive energy.
It is delicious and oh-so-healthy for an uncontrollable American Dream. My nearly 50-year gravity- and liberal-defying rhythm and blues rock ‘n’ roll career would be fulfilling enough simply on a musical level. Add to the organic defiance factor of such a ferocious musical style, a lifetime of societal defiance against an overt left-wing hippie-dominated media, and I do believe I get more satisfaction from causing my brain-dead critics so much anguish with virtually zero effort…
In total defiance to the vicious lies and hateful allegations of “racism” leveled at me by irresponsible, unprofessional and downright goofy media punks, I never said a word about immigration or language, specifically not the alleged slam against “illegal immigrants” or “non-English-speaking” anyone. Those are pure, unadulterated lies created by a hyper-liberal media which have failed forever to take me on regarding any quality-of-life issues in America.
You really ought to read the entire article–at one point, he declares himself “the WhackMaster”–but for those of you wondering, he doesn’t address the most damning allegation against him: That his confederate-covered shirt was, in fact, a cut-off tee.
Surprise, more lies aimed at a lover of America, liberty [Waco Herald-Tribune]
