Guys he's a ROCK STAR, keep things in perspective. If you percieve him as a racist or pedophile then don't buy his records. If he is indeed a pedophile through him in jail (but as far as I know he has not been convicted of any crime in this regard), although his is on record as wanting death penalties, or worse then death type stuff, in place for child molestors.

<i/> Hypocrisy, don't you love it? Ted isn't going to do a Kurt Cobain, as what he said about others doesn't apply to himself. It never does with those types. Indeed, Nugent has not been convicted of child molesting or anything improper with minors (but neither has Michael Jackson fwiw) which is why I'm not going to pronounce him as a pedophile - however, his referring to himself as that and much of what is out there strongly suggests he may be one, and probably is a borderline pedo. There was an interview with Nugent's daughters, who both said that when they were 15-16 Ted would often bring home girls younger than them. That's still not conclusive fact. It just strongly implies that he has certain tendencies, which could perhaps get him into deep trouble. Although the statute of limitations would prevent any criminal prosecutions of most of this alleged activity, I do wonder if there have been any lawsuits against Nugent pertaining to this. </i>

Other things to make the liberals here steaming mad and ensure 4 more pages of posts (why are liberals so angry all the time?). These are Nugent quotes, edited slightly to get past the censors on this site:

On Iraq: he is a critic of Bush, thinks he is not, get this, forceful enough - "Our failure has been not to Nagasaki them",

<i>which proves that he is completely nuts (as if more proof was needed?)</i>

On homosexuality: (see how much gets past the site censors - A "despicable act" performed by "guys that have sex with each other's anal
cavities.
The music performed by some guys who engaged in that so called "despicable act" in the 1970s, such as David Bowie, will long outlive the music that Ted Nugent did in the 1970s. And, unlike Nugent, Bowie continues to do great music. Bowie's concerts in recent years have drawn more people than Nugent's, and he plays at larger venues.

Maybe the GOP should think about running Gary Glitter as a candidate....

In addition, Jerry Lee has never sought to go into politics nor has he ever publically presented himself as a political figure (other than "Lincoln Limousine", his song in memory of the then recently assassinated JFK, which is much beloved by conspiracy theorists because Jerry Lee sang a line about JFK crossing the wrong people).
The point is he's a ROCK STAR what more do we expect. People change a lot from 18 to 40 and life actually gets real . For most we actually made it and were still alive and have to get serious about life.

He seems to have cleaned up his life still MAD MAN but, he is who he is. Take or leave him. He's trying to give back to his fans!! You can't blame a guy for trying to make a better reputation for himself.

We all have those things of youth we would rather not talk about!!

Nugent has the right to speak his mind, but Gov. Perry's approval of Nugent's message is the controversial part. Also, wouldn't it have made more sense for Perry to have gotten a Texan performer to play his inauguration rather than someone associated with the Midwest,like Nugent, even if he does own property in Texas (Waco, to be specific - now why does that seem eerily fitting?)

I wonder how many people defending Nugent would say the same if Gov. Perry had gotten Springsteen or the Dixie Chicks to play his inauguration and if they had made anti-Bush statements.

He probably should have gotten Wille Nelson, but he didn't and there wouldn't have been any controversy and that's exactly what the do when these things happen. I'm not from Michigan and if the chose to vote for him some day then, it's their state.
If he would have gotten the Dixie Chicks that would have been somrthing to see!!

Default wild and free spirit

Ted Nugent may not be a Charlton Heston, who was very well spoken with a voice that you listened too. but he is a clear thinking straight forward, or in your face believer. Id love to spend some time hunting with him.
