I’ve always told conservatives if they don’t want to be tied in with being the party of “racism and hate,” they really need to stop associating with those who are filled with racism and hate. That just makes sense, right?
You can’t associate with bigots and racists, then claim that you’re not part of that group.
A perfect example of this is the conservative love-fest when it comes to Ted Nugent. Nugent is by far one of the most hateful, ignorant and despicable people we have in this country.
He’s also someone Wendy Davis’ opponent for Governor of Texas, Greg Abbott, decided he should take on the campaign trail. Because nothing says “good Christian values” quite like campaigning with someone who told the President of the United States to “suck on a machine gun” and called Hillary Clinton a “b*tch” and a “c*nt.”
He’s just a real class act.
Well, it appears that some of his recent rhetoric he’s been using to bash President Obama was commonly used by Nazis when referring to Jews.
Recently, Nugent called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel.” You know, showing the utmost respect for the President of the United States.
Well, as Wolf Blitzer correctly said, this is a term the Nazis often used when referring to the Jewish community.
“That’s what the Nazis called Jews to justify the genocide of the Jewish community. They called them ‘untermenschen,’ subhuman mongrels, if you read some of the literature that the Nazis put out there, there is a long history of that specific phrase he used involving the President of the United States.”
And I’m sorry, “subhuman mongrel” isn’t exactly a commonly used term in modern society. That phrase is obviously derived from somewhere. You just don’t randomly stumble into it or say it. In fact, outside of Nugent saying it, I’ve never heard someone say it.
So, did Nugent just happen to use it unaware of the fact that Nazis often used it? Perhaps.
But considering his obvious disdain for the “blacks,” as he commonly refers to them as, I lean toward the feeling that he’s well aware of who exactly made this phrase infamous.
Nugent has always been a vocal individual, but prior to Obama’s election he wasn’t really someone who was tied to political ideologies. Yet suddenly, as with the tea party, our country’s election of our first black president seems to have brought out a whole new “class” of hatred and ignorance.
Which I’m sure is just a huge coincidence that happened to coincide with the election of President Obama, a president who’s half African-American.
And this is a man Greg Abbott decided to take on the campaign trail with him. Which just shows you exactly what kind of values for which the Republican party really stands.
