I’m sure we’ve all heard the news by now. The election results are in, and Obama will be our president here in the United States for four more years. Some citizens are ecstatic and some displeased. Amongst the displeased is southern rock legend Ted Nugent. Nugent, a blatant republican if you’ve heard even just a few of his songs, went on the record recently to call Obama supporters “Soulless Fools”.

Throughout the race, he made his support for Republican Mitt Romney very clear. Though I relate or at least enjoy many of the man’s lyrics, this is an area I have a good deal of disagreement with Nugent, and I’m from Massachusetts.

Consistently making harsh criticisms against President Obama, Nugent made himself a known enemy of the party. Even some of what he said was considered to be border-line threatening, resulting in a pleasant visit from the Secret Service at Nugent’s home earlier this year. Did Nugent really step that far out of line? Or were his remarks that threatening?

When asked by the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, “If [Republican presidential candidate MittRomney were a rock band, what band would that be? [And how about President BarackObama?” Nugent replied starkly,

[blockquote]Out and out politicians are anathema to rock and roll, so I hesitate to attempt to connect the two,” Nugent replied. “But on important issues, I am saddened to admit that Obama represents everything bad about humanity and Romney pretty much all that is good. It is really that stark.[/blockquote]

Check out this Fox News interview with Ted Nugent where the rock guitarist shares some of thoughts on President Obama and his policies. What are your thoughts? Agree or disagree?


Nugent’s Twitter account has become nothing less than a gold mine of political slander and hunting promotions:

[blockquote]So Obama still demands the hardest workers provide for the nonwotkers. Shared opportunitiesmy ass[/blockquote]

[blockquote]Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav a president to destroy America[/blockquote]

[blockquote]Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools![/blockquote]

What do you think? Is Ted Nugent pushing the boundaries of his Freedom of Speech just a little too far? Do his opinions hold some truth? Are we all, here in the U.S., now screwed from our own choosing? Why do the thoughts and political beliefs of celebrities always outweight and outshine those of the common public? Please leave your thoughts, questions and opinions below.

  1. “Is Ted Nugent exercising his Freedom of Speech just a little too much?” is a stupid thing to say. it’s his freedom of speech. he can say what he wants, regardless if he’s right.

    1. I can see where you’re coming from, as I agree with you. I believe he was within his rights. However the Government ended up paying Nugent a visit, so that must mean some people feel otherwise, no?
