Perry condemns Nugent's 'subhuman mongrel' remark
ABC (AP) ^ | 2/21/2014

Posted on 02/21/2014 8:09:41 PM PST by South40

AUSTIN, TX -- Texas Gov. Rick Perry on Thursday condemned inflammatory remarks by Ted Nugent that resurfaced when the outspoken rocker this week joined Republican Greg Abbott's gubernatorial campaign.

Nugent was quoted in an interview with Guns.com last month as calling President Barack Obama a "subhuman mongrel." He appeared with Abbott during two campaign stops Tuesday, a decision that Democratic opponent Wendy Davis called "repulsive."

Perry said on CNN's "Situation Room" that Nugent making outrageous comments shouldn't surprise anyone. But he condemned his language about Obama.

"I got a problem calling the president a mongrel. I do have a problem with that," said Perry, who is not running for re-election. "That is an inappropriate thing to say."

Perry is correct. It’s a disgrace to mongrels everywhere to be associated with Obama.

Running away from Ted is the wrong thing for Republicans to do.

Yeah, that’ll get Perry a few temporary brownie points. Republicans eating conservatives for short political gains that quickly evaporate.

Perry condemned the mongrel part but left the sub-human comment alone.

I would agree. Obama is a pure bred sub-human.

“Mixed Breed” is politically correct, as that’s what the lib animal-lovers say. Or the term used by that great representative of black culture in the 70s, George Jefferson: “zebra-striped”!

Ted Nugent: Sorry about the “subhuman mongrel” verbiage

http://legalinsurrection.com/2014/02/ted-nugent-sorry-about-the-subhuman-mongrel-verbiage/

“I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics”

In an interview with conservative radio talk show host and CNN commentator Ben Ferguson, Nugent first apologized “not necessarily to the President, but on behalf of much better men than myself,” referring to Texas politicians such as Governor Rick Perry and Attorney General Greg Abbott.

Nugent went on to say, “I apologize for using the street fighter terminology of ‘subhuman mongrel’ instead of just using more understandable language.” He then used phrases like ‘violator of his oath to the Constitution; the liar that he is’ and elaborated by criticizing Obama’s handling of certain issues, such as the president’s broken promise on Obamacare. “I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics,” Nugent said.

When prompted by Ferguson to clarify, “Are you apologizing to the president of the United States of America Barack Obama for calling him a ‘subhuman mongrel’?” Nugent replied, “yes

Don’t worry. His fan club will arrive soon to tell us what a great president Perry would have made.

Of course, as is often the case where a backbone is involved, the good Gov ends up defending the problem. Guess that back surgery was to remove his spine afterall.

Odumbo, like many other libs, says publicly that being gay is A-OK. But he'll gladly use a gay reference as a pejorative when he is seeking to disparage conservatives. The pro-gay left should call him on that hypocrisy. But they won't.

Ah yes, the LA Raza Rick fan club. Those who are so delusional they believe their man conservative when his liberal record screams otherwise.

Harry Reid tried to pass the DREAM Act, conservatives condemned him. Rick Perry passes his own version of the DREAM Act and he's Mr. Wonderful. Incredible.

Hes just doing his part for the GOPe’s ‘Hands off Obama” campaign. Which comes as no shock to anyone that ever paid the least bit of attention to where the guy’s actual priorities lie.

Lets face it. The GOP wants nothing to interfere with the ascendancy of Hillary to the throne. And such ‘harsh language’ might just help people wake the hell up.

Can’t have that...

And I dont remember anyone in the media demanding that Martin Bashir be fired for the disgusting things he said about Sarah Palin, heck the entire crew on MSNBC should have to apologize for the nasty things they say about Republicans daily, but do they have to apologize, of course not

“That’s Ted Nugent,” says Gov. Rick Perry, shrugging off “subhuman mongrel” comment

....."Gov. Rick Perry today shrugged off the controversy over rocker and gun rights activist Ted Nugent’s description of the president as a “subhuman mongrel.”

“That’s Ted Nugent…. That’s just Ted. Anybody that’s offended – sorry, but that’s just Ted,” Perry said after a breakfast appearance before the Texas State Society. “I don’t take offense, no. If we would spend a whole lot more time talking about how to create jobs instead of trying to pick apart people’s descriptions of somebody, we’d probably get a lot further along in life.”"..............

That should've been Ted Nugent's (or ANY Pubbie's) response to this nonsense. Ask when the last time the Dems and the leftist media demanded an apology from ANYONE for saying things about Sarah Palin, Ted Cruz, George Bush, etc
