I know, I know… people are sick and tired of hearing about the batcrap crazy Ted Nugent. Heck, I don’t even enjoy writing about him. But he was unfortunately thrust into the news when a few liberal websites fabricated a story that went viral, claiming that Nugent had called the Native American tribe that canceled his concert “unclean vermin.”
Then one of those liberal sites took their initial lie a step further by doubling down on it – and fabricating a second false story about Nugent.
If you happen to read either of those articles I linked, you’ll see that I wasn’t at all thrilled with these sites falsifying stories all in the name of driving “hits” for the purpose of generating revenue. Especially seeing as how some people thought I was “defending” Nugent, when in reality that couldn’t be further from the truth.
Well as it just so happens someone posted on Nugent’s Facebook page asking him if he had seen the article I had written. Nugent, who is fairly active responding to people on his page, responded to that post – by calling me a “terminal lying punk.”
Seeing that he called me a “terminal lying punk,” I felt compelled to inquire as to how he ascertained such an opinion:
I followed that response with several direct questions, using his own words, asking him if he would be so kind as to point out where I had lied. And by doing so, to please clarify where I was inaccurate.
Though unfortunately I can’t post the screen shot of those questions. More on that later – but he never answered the questions anyway.
Well, I decided to try yet again to get Mr. Nugent to answer these questions by engaging him on his Facebook page.
And it just so happens he remembered me. Not only that, I managed to actually get a couple of responses out of him:
I didn’t initially get a response to that question, so I decided to ask another:
As you can see, and somewhat to my surprise, Nugent actually tried to answer both accusations. I say “tried,” because his answers were ridiculous. As I began to point out to him:
You may notice that my response isn’t in “posted” form. Well, you see, a funny thing happened while I was countering Nugent’s absurd answers to my questions – he blocked me.
Which is actually pretty funny considering in our first exchange he tried to use his interview with Piers Morgan to claim that he could “shred” my “fantasy list of lies” if I ever tried to debate him.
Yet he blocked me because I dared to ask him a couple of questions, using his own words against him.
Some might say, “How do you know this was him?” Well, this is his verified Facebook page. Meaning that it had to be proven that it was linked to the real Ted Nugent. Not only that, if it was someone else posting for Nugent on his official account, I highly doubt that they would respond (let alone try to answer) direct questions about his personal life.
Though I’m not sure if I’d call his responses “answers.” His defenders might claim that he “answered me,” but it’s clear these answers were complete garbage. In the VH1 video, the 17-year-old he became the legal guardian of, Pele Massa, said that their relationship occurred when she was underage.
Then his answer about other underage girls is preposterous. Why would Nugent need to seek the permission of parents for girls who were of legal age? That makes absolutely zero sense.
Then his defense for his interview in 1977 where he goes into great detail how he avoided the draft is laughable. Claiming that he was just “messing around.” Yet he conveniently didn’t address the fact that he was indeed deemed “unfit to serve” by the United States military.
So he claims that the whole elaborate story he told during a 1977 interview was completely fabricated by him as some “prank,” yet he managed to get an “unfit to serve” classification to avoid going to Vietnam – but won’t explain how.
Seems to me that Nugent is trying to rewrite history by claiming that his story of how he managed to avoid being sent to Vietnam was just a “joke,” because he damn well knows if he admitted that it’s true, even many conservatives would abandon him and his career would essentially be over.
But I found it fairly humorous that Nugent tried using his interview with Piers Morgan (I guess he thinks he came off looking powerful and tough) to imply that he would “shred” me if we were ever to have a debate (because I asked to have one). Yet the moment I started asking a few tough questions, and poking holes in the “logic” of his answers, he quickly banned me from posting on his page.
And for those of you who don’t know, when you ban someone from a page, their comments are then removed. Once he banned me, all of my comments (and his responses) immediately disappeared from his page.
Ted Nugent is a coward. Sure, he can run off at the mouth when he’s unopposed. But as my exchange with him shows, when confronted with direct questions concerning his own words relating to his history of underage women and dodging the draft, he quickly ran away like the spineless bottom-feeder that he is.
