Skip to comments.Cenk Uygur Blasts Greg Abbott for Campaigning with ‘Sexual Predator’ Nugent (2014 Dem talking point)
Posted on 02/24/2014 8:55:23 AM PST by a fool in paradise
Although Ted Nugent has offered something he calls an apology for calling President Obama a sub-human mongrel, that doesnt mean his career as political liability to Texas Attorney General and GOP gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott is over.
Aside from Nugents other unclaimed Nazi rhetoric baggage, The Young Turks host Cenk Uygur points out that the aging rockers documented past defending his right to keep and bare teenagers makes him a bad campaigner for a supposed family values candidate.
Using clips from a 1998 VH1 documentary on Nugent, Uygur details the bizarre manifestation of the musicians addiction to girls"...

Wendy Davis’ supporters are already panicked to be engaging in this sort of smear (and I learned of it from a radio newsbreak).
Wendy may not make 40% in the general.
Are there going to be any major third party challengers this time?
"Maybe I shoulda been a rock star."
“Moderate” Republican turned Progressive
If Nuge was a card-carrying NAMBLA pedophile, the libtards wouldn’t make a peep.
There's some risk her main value (p!ssing away massive national progressive donations in a losing campaign) may never happen. She's failing too quickly.
I can’t believe Ted Nugent is a negative with voters. Maybe with the clueless political class, but that’s about it.
Jeremiah Wright was 20 years Obama’s mentor. He was the “man who brought Obama to Jesus”. He was the man who married Barack and Michelle.
Yet his association with the hateful (not merely controversial) Mr. Wright and the treasonous terrorist Bill Ayers were “off the table” in 2008 and 2012.
I loathe the socialist media networking sites.
I linked this story so FReepers (and history) would know of the smear campaign.
I wonder if Greg Abbott could even name more than 2 Ted Nugent songs or has any of his books in his library?
Ted was a professing atheist in the mid-80s. Don’t know if he “turned his life around” or if it is just more politically popular now to be for “God” and guns. Doesn’t matter to me anyhow, it’s between Ted and his maker.
Obama let Roman Polanski walk. I don’t want to hear tales of political corruption and sexual scandal if both parties aren’t going to be held to similar standards.
Whatever Ted did do, it did NOT involve slipping pills to a 13 year old and then engaging in double sodomy with her when she protested “entry”.
He says what he really thinks.
This is now considered aberrant behavior.
Just to keep up with the leftists doublethink, Having a corrupt judge and uncle keep you out of Vietnam is good (Bill Clinton) becoming filthy derilict to avoid the draft is bad. A man in his 40’s drugging and sodomizing a 13 year old girl on the casting couch is good (Roman Polanski) and consentual sex between a 17 year old groupie and a 30 year old rocker is bad.
I don’t condone Nugent’s decisions, and knowing this makes me think less of him, but ol’ Cenk sure is picky about what will “outrage” him.
Aberrant behavior is shitting yourself to avoid the draft.
Well if VH1 said it....
What’s a “Cenk Ungur”? And why should I care what he/she/it thinks about anything?
Many rockers engaged in such antics to avoid service in Vietnam.
The Turtles took copious amounts of drugs before reporting and then “played crazy”.
Jimi Hendrix allegedly acted queer (he’d already served stateside).
Don’t know what Billy Gibbons’ method was but he hinted at something in a recent magazine interview.
It doesn’t excuse the behavior but it wasn’t running away to Canada either or rallying yutes in the streets to burn a draft card and carry a North Vietnamese Communist flag either.
Former MSNBC talking head who’s outburst (don’t know where) has been making the rounds in a “smear Greg Abbott” campaign.
Just as I wanted to be aware of the memes when they tried tarnishing Ted Cruz as a tax dodger.
Mcain,bush,chenny,romney ,limbaua all deferrals Whos left?
Go ahead....find U.S. an ICON.
The biggest surprise in this article is the fact that Cenk Uygur is still on the air.
Nugent’s sexual exploits are a regrettable stain on his past. He openly admikts to being a chronic womanizer.
As opposed to Slick Willy, the president of the United States, who was probably more of a “wango tango” hound than Nugent, but who would never admit it and who was defended by leftists, who claimed sex was none of our business.
Apparently it’s not . Local radio news says “ Nugentgate “ has not hurt Abbott in the polls . He has a good lead on Davis . Double digit .
Hunting pigs from a helicopter - see the video “Aporkalypse Now”.
As for Nugent’s choice in females, one can’t help wondering if jealousy might be a motive for the kvetchers.
In any case, if a girl, her parents and her boyfriend agree on a relationship - what difference does my or any other person’s opinion matter? I suggest those wanting to insert Gubment into the above scenario might be well advised to become informed as to what happens to minors placed under gubment ‘care’.
what’s a cenk uygur and why should we care what it thinks?
Ted's never denied this. And while I know it doesn't make it right, when it comes to banging underage groupies during the 1970s, Nugent wasn't doing anything that practically every other rockstar at the time was doing. Jimmy Page, Pete Townshend, Mick Jagger... This list is pretty much endless.
Stink Yugo is still around? He was kind of a poor man’s Ed Schultz, pardon my irony. Smearing Nuge for something he said 33 years ago is about the best the left can do,
True but you don’t see VHS1 pointing them out.
Now had Nugent said he was addicted to boy, Uygur would have no problem with that.
I hate canker sores.
They make a nice couple.
Nugent isn’t a paragon of family values it’s true. But Nugent isn’r the one running for office.
She thinks she is and her campaign is looking at anything to grab the LIVs attention. Just heard a poll number and abortion Barbie is dropping like a fly that just hit a bug zapper.
“Whats a Cenk Ungur? And why should I care what he/she/it thinks about anything?”
I believe that it is a leftwing Turkish import.
And as such you are expected to obsequiously bow down to his superior immigrant judgment.
I might be guilty of that too.
“I cant believe Ted Nugent is a negative with voters. Maybe with the clueless political class, but thats about it.”
Hugh Hewitt has been denouncing Ted Nugent as being beneath what is acceptable to people of Hewitt’s class.
So you’re right, the nancy-boy GOPe is negative on him but the rest of us enjoy what he had to say.
