Nugent to Piers Morgan: 'You're the Perfect Poster Boy to Stand Up for Things That Make No Sense'
Newsbusters.org ^ | February 04, 2013 | Noel Sheppard

Posted on 02/05/2013 5:33:05 AM PST by servo1969

CNN's resident gun control advocate Piers Morgan faced off with Ted Nugent Monday, and as was expected, the bullets were flying.

By the end of the first segment, Nugent told his arrogant adversary, "You're the perfect poster boy to stand up for the things that make no sense at all to common sense people" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):

PIERS MORGAN, HOST: I don't understand, and I want you to tell me, in the least inflammatory way possible, why outside of hog hunting, which I get is a problem in Texas, anybody needs one of those [an AR-15]? And if the answer isn't convincing, why the least we couldn't do to those poor families who lost people to that weapon is not just remove those from the equation?

TED NUGENT: Well, a number of things. First of all, I've been monitoring your gun debates. Go ahead and take it to the bank, you will never understand. I really don't believe you'll ever grasp…

MORGAN: What don't I understand?

NUGENT: You don’t understand that it's a simple inanimate tool that tens of millions of American families own that have never caused a problem, never had an accident, and will never commit a crime. You have these aberrations that are such a minute percentage. So my prayers are as strong as anyone…

MORGAN: 100,000 Americans get hit by gunfire, Ted. It’s not a minor aberration.

NUGENT: Let me stop you there, because I’ve been hearing you say this, and you are so full of crap. Listen to me, that statistic includes bad guys shot by cops and intruders shot by homeowners. So that figure is bogus. So you have to…

MORGAN: That’s the figure, 100,000.

NUGENT: Not, it's not an accurate figure.

MORGAN: 100,000 Americans get hit by gunfire a year.

NUGENT: Those include bad guys getting shot by cops, Piers.

MORGAN: 18,000 of those kill themselves with guns.

NUGENT: Japan has a higher suicide rate and they’re not allowed to get down wind of a gun. Your turn.

MORGAN: How many people got murdered by guns in Japan in the last two or three years each year?

NUGENT: We’re not talking about guns, we’re talking about the act of murder. Do you care about murders or do you only care about murders with guns?

MORGAN: I care about all deaths.

NUGENT: I don't think you do. I think you care about guns. I think you're obsessed with guns. 99.99 percent of the gun owners of America are wonderful people that you are hanging around with here today, perfectly safe, perfectly harmless, wonderful, loving, generous, giving, caring people. Would you leave us the hell alone? Go after the nut jobs, go after the murderers, because I don't know any. We need to lock up the bad guys, and when people show dangerous, murderous intent, which everyone one of these mass murderers showed, all their neighbors, their family, their teachers, their fellow students, they all knew they were crazy. But Piers, we didn't stop them because we're worried about hurting their feelings. We have a madman problem in America where they're running around. We have a felony recidivism problem in America. Let's focus on that together and leave the rest of us alone.

MORGAN: A, I won't leave you alone because this is a debate that has to be had in America.

NUGENT: And we appreciate that because you're the perfect poster boy to stand up for the things that make no sense at all to common sense people.

The funny thing about leftists is, in their quest of elitism, they’ll disregard common sense because it is “common”, and they are better than that.

Brilliant takedown of “Musket” Morgan by the Nuge! Ted should be the one handling press conferences by the NRA and other 2nd amendment supporters. The gun-grabbers couldn’t handle the truth coming from Nugent!

Morgan starts off by making the presumption that Ted's response will be "inflammatory." What a condescending pr*ck!

We have a madman problem in America where they're running around.

Ab-so-freakin'-lutely. I saw Docks Morgan once on Madison avenue in New York city so I am assuming he lives there or tapes there? At least he has been there so I assume he has looked around the streets, even on Madison avenue,and seen all the mentally deranged walking around like The Walking dead? And you know what's done about them? Absolutely NOTHING! Why is that? Because every time Republicans try to do something about it, liberals scream bloody hell.

For example in the late 90s Rudy Guliani tried to get them off the street and into mental homes or in jail, and armed guard protected liberals such as Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins organized mass protests until Rudy wussed out.

And what is the result? Well just as an example, from December to now we've had FOUR people pushed onto subway tracks while waiting for the train by mental patients. Two of those four were killed. We've also had people stabbed for no reason, people beaten. I remember a few years ago we even had one lovely individual who decided to take off his clothes, take an electric saw from a construction site and start chopping people up. Yes, these are the people who should be walking the streets.

EVERY single day you will find a story of somebody mentally ill injuring or killing someone and that is JUST in New York city. And what do liberals focus on? An inanimate object! Liberals are the freakin problem! Not freakin guns!

As I was discussing with my family (after my 3 yr old chose “Little Critter’s Earth Day” at the library),

there are many facets to advancing the myth of global warming.

There are those who are using this cause to get rich.
There are those using this cause to get power for themselves.
There are those pitiful sheeperals that need something to make them feel good about themselves as “righteous”.
And, there are those who know it’s probably not true, but need some “leverage” to push a non-polluting lifestyle on others.

Nugent is getting very good at adversarily interviews.

These anti-gun interviews of Morgan's must be getting great ratings - I don't know why else he would invite repeated ass kickings.

If it were not for the FR, Rush and Levin, I would not even know who most of these liberal commentators are, let alone be able to identify one of them on the sidewalk!

When Rush plays a quote from one of these idiots, they have more listeners in 30 seconds that they do a full year on their own network.

He’s a bomb-thrower, nothing more. Journalism today is like professional wrestling of the 70’s. They say outrageous things to get people to tune in.

In the journalism world, Piers Morgan is Rowdy Roddy Piper.

Piers Morgan is purposefully stoking the flames of our outrage in order to advance his own CNN ratings, nothing more. He is willing to make himself deeply unpopular in order to be more notorious. This man has no beliefs in anything but his own popularity, and if he can’t have that, he’ll at least settle for rich and infamous. Turn him off. Don’t give him any more attention.

Nuge did a great job with Piers "-how dare you?" Morgan. He stayed on point and did not let Piers distract him. It's important for conservatives to keep to the point they're trying to make, and not let the host steer them elsewhere. Nuge did that with Morgan better than anyone I've seen. How many times have we seen a conservative just about to drop the hammer on the libtard host when the host changes the subject and the point is lost? Great job, Nuge.
