Rocker Ted Nugent hijacks attention in race for Texas governor
Star Telegram ^ | 2/19/14 | Anna M. Tinsley

Posted on 02/19/2014 6:21:14 AM PST by smokingfrog

Texas voters got their first chance to cast ballots Tuesday for the March 4 primaries, but rabble-rousing rocker Ted Nugent stole the show as early voting began.

Nugent, an outspoken gun rights activist, campaigned with Republican Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott Tuesday, sparking criticism from Democrats and state Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, who say he disrespects women and others.

“We don’t have to question Greg Abbott’s courage, because he invited me here today,” Nugent said during an event in Denton, later adding that a female politician similar to Davis created a “cesspool” under her leadership.

After casting her ballot in the Democratic Primary, Davis said Abbott’s decision to include Nugent in get-out-the-vote events shows what kind of man he is.

“Ted Nugent has a record of taking an approach to women that’s extremely demeaning, repulsive,” she said. “For Greg Abbott to embrace him, to stand with him, on this important day of voting, demonstrates what his values are. They are not in alignment with everyday Texans.”

Davis and Abbott are perceived as the front-runners in the March primaries and are expected to face each other in the Nov. 4 general election battle that will determine Texas’ next governor.

Unlike Davis' kind, compassionate approach of supporting the brutal murder of female babies. You gotta be freakin' kidding me??

I think Ted Nugent is supported by quite a lot of women in Texas, and democrats had better be darn careful about locking horns with him.

Just saying.

Certainly not Texans who abandon their children the day after their sugar daddy makes the final payment on their college educations.

Democrats are always hysterically complaining about something. They always need to create a bogeyman. If its not the one perceters its the “women haters”, or the polluters, or the exploiters, etc. Its their favorite tactic.

People around the country should wake up. All the Democrats do is offer up lots of imaginary scapegoats instead of offering real solutions to our problems.

Too bad most Republicans can’t figure out that simple formula. Push back hard and play to win. That’s how you gain ground. Its hard to score points when you’re always playing defense.

This is the way they intend to play it. All Democratic women are hands-off. Anyone who attacks them is a vicious woman-hater. Worked with Obama, will work with Hillary & this Texas chick.

I don’t know much about Ted Nugent - except when he occasionally appears on tv or the radio. I’ve never heard him utter a single nasty word about women.

Just like you and your evil cohorts have a demeaning, repulsive view of the disabled? Not to mention that her treatment of men is worse than Nugent’s supposed “demeaning” treatment of women. It’s horrid to marry a guy to (unknowingly) be your sugar daddy, and then dump him because his usefulness has worn out. No one should be taking moral lessons from this dumb slut.

I saw his wife on TV (FNC IIRC) with him a few years back promoting their book, Kill It and Grill It. She was an attractive lady and well spoken. Looked to me like they had a great marriage and respected each other. Perhaps Mrs. Nugent should tweet something. That said, I suspect Ted wouldn’t want to look like he was “hiding behind a woman’s skirt” (those of us that have seen him and them wouldn’t think that, but I suspect Windbag and other Dims would bring that out).

Once again she pulls a “Biden” and says for Abbott “to stand with” Nugent show his oppinion of women.

As for Nugent, he just calls a spade a spade and a mongrel and mongrel.

They always need to create a bogeyman.

Stand up for traditional marriage. You suddenly hate people who cannot and do not want to have children, and you're out to deny basic human rights to same-sex adherents.

I worked at a labor union union of all places among rabid liberals. I never backed down from my conservative views and I actually got a few points across during some of my many conversations. It was maddening at times.

Marxists are always victims. Run on the issues Wendy and not on your sex. He has been married to his wife more years than she has both times.

I’ve said it frequently ... Ted Nugent is a pig. Having him campaign for you should disqualify you for office. He defecated on himself to avoid the Draft. He had sex with underage girls routinely.

He is a coward. He is sub-human. He is to be shunned.

Been saying this for sometime now. The theme for the 2016 election is “war on women”. Last two elections was “race”.
Obama- race. Clinton- it’ll be war on women. Its all the liberals have, anything to cause a commotion. Nothing about the problems/solutions.

Two wives, eight kids by half a dozen mothers, plus whatever that thing was with that 17 year old in Hawaii in the 70's? Ted Nugent is hardly a poster child for traditional marriage or respect for women so it's probably not surprising that Davis would try and make an issue out of it. But at the end of the day, Nugent's personal morality, or lack thereof, should not be an issue in the race. He isn't running.

:: Ted Nugent has a record of taking an approach to women that’s extremely demeaning, repulsive, she said. ::

(i) Wendy, please provide said “record” of “mysogeny” [my term].
(ii) Nugent is a private citizen and is protected by 1st Amendment considerations. Being an “entertainer” he must accept criticism of his music but slander and libel of his political views are...”dicey”; I don’t think he should agree to slander regarding his “politicval-citizen” statements. Wendy has opened herself up to LIBEL concerns that “Uncle Ted” can certainly afford to litigate.

BTW, “Uncle Ted” is an endearment many of us from SouthCentral Michigan have used since the 70s.

I’ll consider not talking about “women’s issues” when liberals demand that liberal women do the same. When they demand that men stop talking about “their” issues, all they’re doing is attempting to silence half the opposition.

When Wendy Davis and friends can produce children with zero input from men, I’ll shut up about it. Till then, they can kiss my masculine-ly muscled ass.

And your consideration of “socialist” persons such as Bob Segar, Eddie Money and other American “rockers” who routinely “had sex with underage girls”.

How about Prince, a public advocate of Obamugabe?
