Ted Nugent Uses Slur Used By Nazis When Attacking President Obama

ted-nugent-1I’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.

Blitzer said:

“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.

    mr. nugent is an irrelevant ass who joined the right wing of America. The right wing of America embraces this narcissistic, shit stained draft dodger, statutory rapist who calls himself a “patriot”. It was not very patriotic to avoid the draft in the manner he did nor was it legal for him to diddle the girls he diddled.
    AND this is the type of person who the right wing wants support from.
    Tells me a lot about the right wing in America.
    Using slurs against the President means he is a litte man. an almost pathetic, little man.

    • debiannj

      I believe that all the drugs he did while he was on the road have damaged his brain. I consider Nugent a non-person after the sick way he got out of going to Vietnam, and then turning around and embracing the REAL heroes who went to war when HE REFUSED to go himself.

      • Kevin Nivek Murphy

        Well, Nugent is notoriously straight edge, and goes far enough to attack rockstars like Darrell “Dimebag” Abbott of Pantera (A 100% Texas loving guy) for portraying a “Druggie” image, which somehow tied into him being killed by an insane person. Someone should challenge Nugent at one of these stops for degrading Abbott and the thousands of Pantara fans in Texas.

  • republic84

    If it was anyone who mattered, there might be cause for alarm. Since however its some old washed up barely even a has been with obvious mental deficiencies, I’m pretty sure we should just ignore him. Probably wouldn’t hurt to silently have the IRS audit him (just for the inconvenience factor) and maybe send the ATF in to make sure his weapons cache is legal. Most importantly stop writing articles about him. Fires eventually die when you stop adding wood.

    • Mike m

      Isn’t that surprising a liberal wanting to infringe on someone’s rights illegally. IRS, sounds familiar. This country is doomed!

      • hermanprovi

        Mr. Mike m, Ted Not-gent cannot be defended! It sounds as if you agree with him and his stupid tirades, and you have the temerity to attack someone who uses sarcasm, that resembles the truth! the republican party has been infested by tea baggers who most, seem to be RACISTS!

      • debiannj

        Funny you should bring up the IRS. Did you know that the reason the 501(C)4s that were kicked back to the failed TP groups failed not because they were targeted, but because they were given bad info by their own people? They were told that any group could get tax exemption in the form of a 501(C)4 by applying for it, which they did in droves. However, they FAILED to tell them that they had to be CHARITABLE organizations, not political, and “saving America from Obama” is not a charitable cause. Did you also know that they weren’t targeted specifically because they were TP groups? They were “targeted” because the group that was giving bad info was uncovered, and among the groups that got bad info were also liberal, moderate, and even some Independent groups. It wasn’t a political move, even though you people have tried to make it one – it was a move based on a fraud complaint.

      • republic84

        Your quite right, with anyone in the GOP allowed to govern, this country is doomed. I didn’t suggest use the IRS always, I suggested its use as an annoyance to this one individual. As he is an anarchist and a criminal, he has no rights. Therefore No worries!

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, reminds me of the path of regressive white trash tea party scum

    • ditomagik

      I’m not so sure of that, republic84. There are good reason not to ignore this. For instance, I apparently never have had any cause to be interested in Ted Nugent until these news items started to show up, and his picture with Sarah Palin caught my interest. (She’s so funny. Every time she shows up or opens her mouth, she puts her foot in it, big time! What a laugh. I honestly don’t think she has a clue about what is going on) Her association with Nugent, and thier joined efforts made me think I should know more about him.
      I started my research. Here is some of what I found.

      Unlike Palin, who is simply laughable, this is not a funny man, even though he apparently thinks so himself. He does not respect our country, our citizens, our political system and openly breaks laws at will, and brags about it. For instance, his first wife was too young to marry at 17, so he convinced her parents to sign over her legal guardianship to him. (There is something wrong with that. Would you call that slavery?) His idea of politics is to call for violence against our elected officials, and he teaches violence and hate to our children through his poetry and music. He brags that the week before his draft physical, he stopped going to the bathroom and just did his business in his pants — “I was a walking, talking hunk of human poop.” he brags.
      His approach to “Gun Control issues” is to tells us that our President should “suck on a gun”, and on other issues he goes on to call the wife of a former President hateful and disgusting names. He advocates direct harm to many he encounters, and to us all.

      For myself, as someone who wants to be a part of choosing what’s right and what’s not for my county and it’s leadership, I’m trying to pay attention and get the facts, and Sarah Palin’s comment, “If it’s good enough for Ted Nugent, it’s good enough for me.” speaks very clearly. None of this is good enough for me.
      Nugent is not running for office yet, but has stated that he is considering a run for President in 2016, and some have talked of his possible run for Senate as well.
      Good grief! I wouldn’t want this man in charge of picking up my trash, let alone representing me and my families best interests as an elected official of my country, and if I was running myself, I wouldn’t want him backing me either. (or Palin for that matter)

      Pay attention folks. It can get worse!

  • tina rowling

    surely there’s some irony in the use of this nazi slur by someone associated with a party that repeatedly attempts to compare president obama to hitler.

    • debiannj

      The sad part is that the Nazis stole a lot of what they said about the Jews from us with slavery.

  • Matt123331

    What a surprise. The guy who raped underage teens as a musician is now making racial slurs about a government he hasn’t attempted to understand.

      With one foot in his mouth.

  • Mike m

    Kind of like liberals associating themselves with Martin Bashir (said someone should dedicate in sarah palin’s mouth) & Ed Shultz ( called L Ingraham a slut), so I guess their all misogynists. Oh, that’s right it’s ok when a liberal says it about a conservative.

    • mvlinn21

      No, it isn’t okay. No one is saying that is okay. We are talking about Greg Abbott and the Tea Party now, though. Stop trying to misdirect. And I think you meant defecate? Two men who said foul things, and yes, they probably are misogynists. Ted Nugent is a Nazi who owns a lot of guns and keeps urging people to kill the president. Why would anyone in the GOP want to be associated with him?

    • Ghastly

      “dedicate”….ROFLMAO!!!

    • hermanprovi

      Mike, you sound as if you are like Sarah Palin and Greg Abbott, in that you, like them, do not, or can not read newspapers. Mr. Bashir, and Shultz were canned for their statements!

    • debiannj

      I think you need to learn to type there Mike. No one DEDICATED in Palin’s mouth, or tried to. Both Bashir and Shultz were told by many people that what they said was wrong – and many of them were liberals. But even so – much, much more has been said about liberal politicians by you conservative stink tanks (and yes, that wasn’t a mistake). They misogynists are not liberals, they are the TP conservatives who are waging war on ALL women. But you know, saying “DEFICATE” and calling someone a “SLUT” is nothing like calling someone a “C*nt” and a “B*tch” and a “wh*re”. Nugent is a menace whose “antics” to get out of going to Vietnam by not bathing, defecating on himself, and doing drugs caused him to get a Psychological deferent to the draft. He now poses with actual military HEROES, and talks smack – but he’s a certifiable coward. I guess if Abbott wants to travel with a psychological deviant, and coward who USES real heroes as photo ops, we should let him.

    • ditomagik

      No it’s not alright, but it doesn’t mean Republicans are the only ones who can call it out. It is always wrong.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      His father is of the African country of Kenya, so his paternal predecessors are African, making him 50% of African descent.

        Ancestry dotcom claims that President Obama’s mother descended from John Punch a black whose sons were free and bcams slave owners themselves.

      His father was a Luo from Kenya which is in Africa.

His father turned him into a not only Republican but a Teaparty it’s my worse nightmare!!! My son is so hard for me and my daughters to get along with!!!! He was not raised that way when he was little!!! He doesn’t realize when his party associates with racists pricks like Ted Nugent and other fools like him than he appears to be a racist, white trash scum bag as well, etc!!!! He gets so pissed and out of joint like the rest of them when you try explaining to him this he takes it as an insult I’m calling him all these things…lol. I hate to say it but he’s become one of those people and we are of mixed race. Multi cultural family. I must put this out there for those who say President Obama isn’t half African American he is because he was born in America so it makes him American!!!! Everyone is illegal to begin with our ancestors (white or not) came for else where dah! The Native Americans (Indians FEATHERS not DOTS) Where here first they discovered America first therefore were here first, they are true Americans!!! My grand father and his ancestors were here first. He’s a full blood Cherokee Indian.

      • moe/larry & curly keys

        take some comfort in that I was a total prick to my mom until I “grew up” and had an awakening. I cannot say this will be grace you- but it may! if not; it is the way of life sometimes to wrestle from us what we thought was ours. I hope your young man joins me as one who suddenly grows up—- and finds his great mom as a great mom!!

    While I am loathe to judge an entire group by the antics of a few:

    It’s interesting (and undeniable) that the ignorant, racist, haters are just naturally drawn to the GOP, and The Right.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      that’s because they are elitist white trash religious scum

      • Bill Short

        Actually, they are treated as ignorant and easily manipulated wannabe 1%’ers by the GOP leadership, just as the so called religious right is. It is all part of their southern plan.

    Gre Abbott says,that he “did not know ” of Ted Nut-gents racists comments! Perhaps Mr. Abbott will be the first DEAF governor of Texas!

    • debiannj

      Abbott wanted Ted to go on the campaign trail because he thought it would be fun having a world famous person as HIS roadie. The problem is that he forgot that a person is judged by the company he keeps – and that means if he keeps company with racist slugs, he’s one.

    • ditomagik

      LOL….Love it!

  • Sam

    Why the right-wing values, and promotes what these people say, (Nugent, Palin, Limbaugh, etc.) is beyond my comprehension. It’s like, if you want to sound like an idiot, bring Nugent along on your campaign trail! How low has that bunch sunk to, that they are that idiotic as to think these people will help get them elected. MOST Americans are smarter than that!

    • ditomagik

      Because many would vote for a famous name or a person who sang their favorite song…For many, that’s about all they know of politics. (Oh, yeah, and they vote. Scary, huh?)

  • bebo

    Ted Nugent is a douchebag, who if he isn’t singing, should keep his mouth shut…. on second thought, he should just keep it shut at all times…

  • debiannj

    Master Nugent (Not calling him Mister because he’s got the mind of a sick kid), is as racist as they come. In addition to the Nazi’s calling Jews subhuman mongrels, that term was used during slavery and after to refer to blacks. Blacks were considered 3/5 human, even as they were freed from bondage. Blacks that intermarried with individuals of any other race – white, Mexicans, Indians, Chinese – were called mongrels and curs. He’s not necessarily using a NAZI term, but he’s using a well used derogatory description that the Nazis stole from us. (We stole it from other cultures as well, because I believe it was used to describe people who were a hybrid Roman/whatever other culture, but it was still meant as a slur.)

  • Sir Lancenough

    More tolerance from the left I see.

      Tolerance is necessary when understanding, eludes…

    • disqus_mmZU8TPsvi

      One does not tolerate hate or bigoted speech and actions. Should hitler’s hate speech be tolerated? Maybe if the german people hadn’t tolerated his hate speech, history would have been different. Maybe if the hate speech from the KKK and other people towards blacks had not been tolerated, we wouldn’t have had jim crow. Maybe if the hate speech against the Irish and other immigrants to the US had not been tolerated, they might have had an easier time to adjust.
      Allowing hate to flourish and go unchallenged has never resulted in good things happening. That’s why civilized people should never tolerate hate speech.
      It is always the bigots who complain of their hate speech not being tolerated. Maybe they should stop their hate speech. It is always destructive and never of any good value to a society.

      • Sunnysmom

        Exactly. I refuse to tolerate intolerance where it comes to hate speech, period.

    • Sunnysmom

      He can hate the President all he wants. Hell, he can say “I hate the President because of his policies.” That’s fine, I’d disagree with him but that’s what America is built on. But we shouldn’t tolerate what he said from ANYONE, left or right.

    • moe/larry & curly keys

      being taught by regressive voodoo ( see: religion) practitioners on the right

  • Edward Krebbs

    What he said is deplorable. It is even more deplorable that the Texas repub that Nugent was speaking in support of has released an announcement that doesn’t do a thing to distance him from the statement. But on the statement being intentional, I have to pause as I wonder if Nugent’s lifestyle choices have left him with two working brain neurons to rub together.

  • Ted Nugent is one of the few men in the World who suffers from penis envy.
