By Jody Thompson,
(What's this?)American rock star Ted Nugent has followed in Lily Allen's footsteps to be the latest celebrity to comment on the UK's knife crime problem.
However, unlike Lily, he's set to spark controversy with his outrageous views.
An advocate of hunting and gun-ownership rights, Nugent currently serves on the Board of Directors of the National Rifle Association and thinks the problem would stop if Britons were allowed to arm themselves with guns.
Talking mid-set during his gig at London's Indigo venue in the 02 Arena on Monday night, he said: "I understand that London has a knife problem. That's because you took everybody's guns away."
He continued: "If you had a f***ing gun you could shoot the motherf*****s with the knife. Do you need me to explain that to you dumb Limey motherf******? In Detroit, we don't have a knife problem. The knife motherf*****s got a Ted problem."
"'Oooh, he's got a knife, I'll pretend I'm from England'. [Imitates firing a gun]. Take that motherf****r. [Then pretends to call 911]: 'You might wanna bring a dustpan and broom because there's a big puddle of shit on the sidewalk'. That's what you call a deterrent. That motherf****r ain't gonna knife no-one ever again."
It's unlikely anti-knife campaigners are going to take Nugent's ideas seriously however.
As exclusively revealed in The Mirror today, one in five youngsters now claim they or their pals have been threatened with knives in the past year with an explosion of gangs being blamed.
Police figures to be released today are expected to show 25,000 stabbings were committed in England and Wales in the last 12 months.
A little tactless, but true.
Ted’s completely right
Yer dang skippy Ted.
Don’t bring a knife to a gun fight.
Full bluntal Nugity...
Overt concern for being “tactless” and politically correct is what got England into the problems it faces today...
LOL!!! Oh, man, you’ve gotta love Ted! Hehehehehehe...
The only reason why this restrained statement of obvious truth is considered an “outrageous rant” is because Socialism is a mental disorder that prevents those afflicted from grasping basic logical concepts.
I think, however, that his words will ring entirely true with many British FReepers here, even if the delivery may be somewhat off-putting.
Ted’s aiming to be charged with a hate crime... It is a hate crime to hate crime, right? I get so confused...
Did you make that up yourself? I like it!
ROFL. I can just picture the Brits fainting and spilling their tea, and their nannies and butlers trying to revive them over hearing this. I wish I was an enterprising criminal with access to a ton of .38 snub-nosed revolvers. I’d sell them on the street for $100 bucks apiece, and be rich.
That rant is full of Nugenty goodness.
“Full bluntal Nugity...”
Let me guess... The anti-knifers are the same folks who were anti-gun.
BWWwhahahhhahahahhaaaa.... Amen, brother.
LOL!!! Oh, man, youve gotta love Ted! Hehehehehehe...
They aren’t smart enough to get what he’s saying.
I wonder how many shootings they had in a 12 month period before they took away everyone's guns......
I think it's time to give their guns back!
