After Ted Nugent says Parkland teens have no soul, Joy Reid reminds America he dodged draft by pooping his pants


Recommended Posts

NBC host Joy Reid reminded Americans on Sunday that they should not hold the opinions of Ted Nugent in high regard after he recently said that survivors of a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida had “no soul.”

During a radio interview last week, the conservative rocker and NRA board member went after Parkland students who advocate for gun safety laws.


“These poor children, I’m afraid to say, but the evidence is irrefutable. They have no soul,” Nugent opined at the time.

In a series of tweets on Sunday, Reid recalled that Nugent had defecated in his pants to dodge the draft and had repeatedly been associated with pedophilia.

“Then a week before [my physical], I stopped going to the bathroom. I did it in my pants. poop, piss the whole shot. My pants got crusted up,” Nugent told High Times in a 1977 interview. “[T]hey made everybody take off their pants, and I did, and this sergeant says, “Oh my God, put those back on! You fucking swine you!” Then they had a urine test and I couldn’t piss, But my poop was just like ooze, man, so I poop in the cup and put it on the counter. I had poop on my hand and my arm. The guy almost puked. I was so proud. I knew I had these chumps beat.”

After Reid’s mini-tweet storm, she also pointed out Nugent’s history in a segment on MSNBC.

“That is Ted Nugent who in 1977 gave an interview saying he took meth and poohed his pants so he wouldn’t have to go to Vietnam and reportedly adopted a 17-year-old girl so he could have sex with her,” she pointed out.

A handy reminder of what Ted Nugent told High Times Magazine in 1977 about how he got out of having to fight in Vietnam...




Oh and he wrote a song called "Jail Bait" that Roy Moore might really enjoy...

Ted Nugent has no soul

The "Motor City Madman" schtick is getting old, Ted.

On Friday — Good Friday for all the Christians in the house — the old-enough-to-retire rocker and so-called "conservative" said the teenaged gun control activists who survived of the Parkland, Fla., Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre are "mushy brained children" who have "no soul."

"The Nuge" made the comments on the conservative nationally syndicated Joe Pags radio show, where the National Rifle Association board member defended the organization and its members against blame for the Parkland shooting, which left 17 people dead and wounded 17 more:
The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. No NRA member have ever been involved in any mass shootings at all, in fact the National Rifle Association is the lone organization that has taught firearm safety in schools, and for law enforcement, and for military, and for childrens organizations and family organizations around the country for 100 years. So once again, this poor pathetic individual is a liar.
The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies. I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless. To attack the good law-abiding families of America when well known predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless. These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul.

Wow. How shocking. How edgy. How politically incorrect. How rock 'n' roll. 

How utterly predictable.

The Nuge's comments are the latest from right-wing pundits attacking the Parkland survivors-turned-activists, which have ranged from accusing them of being "actors" in some sort of grand liberal anti-gun conspiracy to comparing them to Nazis.

It's inconcievable to these people that the Parkland teens, having witnessed their friends getting senselessly gunned down, might actually be fed up with the empty rhetoric of politicians and pundits.

And they're outmaneuvering these old farts at every turn.

Nugent's comments came as advertisers were dumping Fox News' Laura Ingraham after she mocked Parkland survivor David Hogg for getting rejected from four colleges, implying that it had to do with his activism. Hogg then tweeted a list of advertisers on her show, calling for a boycott. 

Many of the companies swiftly pulled their advertising. (Though Detroit's Quicken Loans, which advertises its Rocket Mortgage on the program, did not.) After Ingraham apologized, she then abruptly announced she would take a weeklong "Easter break" from her show.

"She only apologized after we went after her advertisers," Hogg told The New York Times. "It kind of speaks for itself." 

Nugent, of course, is not one to talk about souls — having made countless inflammatory comments throughout the years, including saying President Barack Obama should "suck on my machine gun." Another threatening comment got Nugent investigated by the Secret Service in 2012.

The Parkland students demanded an apology for Nugents' latest comments.

"If only he saw all the tears. If only he had to look into the eyes I’ve looked into. If only he saw what this did to all of us," Parkland junior Cameron Kasky tweeted. "And here the NRA is, receiving more fear-based donations than ever. Talk about 'no soul.' This guy better apologize. Seriously."

Seriously: Just shut the fuck up, Ted.
