Skip to comments.Nugent, after GOP shooting: No more ‘hateful rhetoric’
Posted on 06/15/2017 8:14:33 PM PDT by Coronal
Conservative rocker Ted Nugent, who once told a concert crowd that Barack Obama should suck on [his] machine gun, has had a change of heart about violent rhetoric following Wednesdays shooting attack on Republican members of Congress.
I have reevaluated my approach, even though Im a street fighter, Mr. Nugenttold WABC radio hosts Curtis Sliwa and Eboni Williams. Im from Detroit, we used language in the street. We used certain harsh terms.
But at the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just cant use those harsh terms. I cannot and I will not, he said. We have got to be civil to each other.
The whole world is watching America, where you have the God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and we have got to be more respectful to the other side, he added.

He may need a different wife.
I won’t ever forget the level of disrespect that has been shown to Donald Trump.
No Ted, keep attacking them. Do you honestly think they will ever reciprocate?
Is this the best course?
They finally step over that last line, and in response our toughest guy drops to his knees and starts kissing ass.
That can only encourage more attacks.
the world gets to see the truth, that liberals are stupid, hateful, self-important and murderous
Liberals, just like islamists, respect one thing; power.
Nugent is completely wrong on this.
It’s attitude, not language, that needs to change.
Sorry, Ted, you are wrong. These stalinist thugs will kill you and your family if given the chance.
“We” need to be civil, Ted? You got a mouse in your pocket. “They” need to be civil!
Let's hope that he doesn't have to decide whether to insult a Demoncratic president for at least 20 more years.
This is the problem with fighting the Dims, the Right gets shamed and cowered into backing down and thinking the other side will react fairly and honorably as well. They NEVER will! One side is out to win and it doesn’t seem like ours.
I think the strength of our position is diminished if we resort to the kind of ad hominem that the Democrats have adopted. Our position is strong. we should rely on that strength, not diminish it.
Don’t expect the left to EVER reciprocate.
They are in full blown hate mode and getting worse all the time.
The attitude that needs to change is called political correctness. And the fruit it bears—hatred and murder.
Define “hateful rhetoric”.
anything a conservative says is hateful rhetoric. anything a marx-o-crat says is free speech.
This Kumbuya beeswax is fading all but gone on the Dem side.. Pelosi today already yanking on the plug.
I can remember a whole year or so ago when Nugent posted that wacky anti-Jewish gun control pic on his facebook page and then wouldn’t admit he did it by mistake even after his page was swamped with anti-Jew mouthbreathers. What ever happened with that? Lost in the internet memory hole I guess.
Never show the Left weakness, Trump did with his, “They suffered enough” crap, and immediately they went to War against him.
It’s past time to start returning fire.
