Ted Nugent Using Stage To Push Political Agenda, Rick Perry (Nuge for Perry)
Ultimate Classic Rock ^ | Joe Robinson

Posted on 09/07/2011 12:12:21 PM PDT by AAABEST

Ted Nugent understands he that likely won’t have an official position in close friend Rick Perry’s 2012 presidential campaign — the Nuge himself admits he’s far too outspoken of a right wing rabble-rouser to be productive for the Texas Governor’s cause — but that sure as hell doesn’t mean Nugent is avoiding politics in an important election year. Nor is he ignoring rock ‘n’ roll.

In fact, Nugent is looking at new ways to combine the two.

The so-called Motor City Madman is “already booking next year’s tour to be the most effective in it’s geographical impact and its statement” in political terms, likely meaning he’ll be targeting key swing states when he hits the road in 2012. And while Nugent realizes he must hold back when stumping alongside Perry, he knows his stage is his chance to say exactly what he thinks.

“That bully pulpit can also have a serious tone to it,” Nugent explains. “But on a rock ‘n’ roll stage, I can tell Hillary Clinton to straddle my machine gun. The more something causes problems with people, the more I’ll say it ’cause it’s rock ‘n’ roll and you can eat me. But that’s a rock ‘n’ roll show. I know how to change the tone. If you can differentiate between what goes on on a rock ‘n’ roll stage and a dialogue . . . then we can actually move forward.”

See our review of Ted’s recent swing through UCR’s home state of Ohio right here.

The choice is clear: Gun control as forced by the Chuck Schumer’s of the world is complicit in every violent crime committed. Conversely, gun control a la Ted Nugent is putting the second shot through the same hole as the first shot, where innocent lives are saved and recidivistic maggots come to a screeching halt, felled by the lovely ballet of good over evil we call the Double Tap Center Mass Boogie. Learn it, know it, love it, shoot it. Good guys should live, bad guys not so much.

Gene Simmons voted for obama. He’s a liberaal. And Nugent didn’t endorse perry. He’s good friends with Sarah and Todd Palin too. Don’t get so carried away.

Simmons’ daughter has worn Obama T-shirts at least one two shows. Simmons does love the U.S. military, however. That said, Blackie Lawless of WASP voted for McCain against Obama. Charlie Daniels, too.

He lets the music do the talking. :-)

I read a list of celebs who voted for McCain (or against Obama). Not a musician but the actor who plays opposite Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men is a Pubbie, too.

Well Nuge will be stumping for him on his upcoming tour.

I don't want to make Palin fans' heads explode, but since you mentioned Perry, Palin and Nugent all in one post, here's a pic of Nugent and Palin at a PERRY rally:

Sarah likes Perry too.

The Nuge does like the Palins, but he seems to have firmly jumped on the Perry bandwagon.

He, like many of us with half a brain, knows that Palin either ain’t running, or ain’t gonna win if she does.

The hard rock and metal wings of rock and roll tend to be considerably more conservative, or at least libertarian, than other genres in my experience.

Country, of course, has always been largely conservative.

Gene’s daughter is like a typical airhead liberal chick...but she might come around.

Gene himself is more libertarianish in nature but seems rather non-ideoligical, basically, he cares about Israel’s place in the world, hence his support.

I saw KISS about seven or eight years ago in concert. Simmons made a point of saluting the troops. Same show: I’m pretty sure it was Paul Stanley who mentioned that his dad (like mine) fought in the Korean War, too.

“Well Nuge will be stumping for him on his upcoming tour.”

Where did it say that? ‘Cause it isn’t in the article you posted.

But guess what, I don’t care. Nugent is 100% and that’s just the way it is. He is human, therefore fallible. LOL
