This time the NRA hero, and Greg Abbott ally, decided to attack the poor. Because what a draft-dodging, deadbeat dad who once said he was obsessed with underaged girls should really be doing is judging other people, right?
Nugent wrote a column titled America’s Whining ‘Poor’ — And Other Conundrums where he said:
As the Democrats continue to get away with their crimes, the squawking poor just keep on getting poorer, and as is always the case, they have no one to blame but themselves. Stupid is as stupid does. Brainwashing only works if you give up your brain and your soul to the brainwashers.
Another mind-boggling conundrum is the fact that America’s so-called poor live a life far better than do real poor people around the world and have luxuries they can only dream of.
With their cell phones, automobiles, microwave ovens, air-conditioning, new clothes, manicures and pedicures, bling-bling, clean water, more food than they can eat, pretty much redistributed everything handed to them, they still whine how America should be more like those other countries.
Classy as always.
How dare poor people enjoy such luxuries as air conditioning, clean water, food, clothes, a microwave and some form of transportation to get to work?!
By his “logic” the poor in America shouldn’t whine because, well, they could always be living in Somalia, right? You know, the country with small government, low taxes and practically no laws on firearms. Heck, isn’t that exactly the type of country Nugent, and people like him, seems to want to turn this country into?
But as someone who grew up dirt poor, his comments are absolutely disgusting. While it’s indisputable that there are some people who abuse our welfare system in this country, most poor people are just trying to survive with a little dignity. Millions of parents who rely on government assistance to take care of their families have full-time jobs. Though it seems Nugent believes that people are poor because they’re lazy, looking for a handout.
Then to basically call poor people stupid is simply pathetic.
Especially coming from someone as disgusting as Ted Nugent.
It never ceases to amaze me how someone who defecated on himself to avoid defending his country during the Vietnam War, admitted to having an obsession with underaged girls and fathered several illegitimate kids (while having to be taken to court to pay child support on one) has the nerve to judge anyone else.
Nugent is one of the most vile, disgusting creatures (I hesitate to even call him human) that I’ve ever witnessed. Anyone who supports this reprehensible individual should be absolutely ashamed of themselves.
And to think, Greg Abbott actually proudly campaigned with this jackass. Then again, Abbott’s the person who thinks the best way for Texans to identify dangerous chemical companies in their neighborhoods is to just “drive around.” And we saw how well that went.
So I guess to other scumbags, someone like Ted Nugent just fits right in.
