I received an email from someone calling themselves Sebastian. They had tried to register, but, unfortunately, there was a problem, which has now been corrected by the way, so I hope he comes back.
As I have always said, If you have an Opinion, this is the place for it! I believe that until we all get our viewpoints out there, and share our opinions, and have a discussion about our differences, no one will ever change their minds, that is what is wrong in this country now, those on the right, only associate with others on the right, the same goes with any other group, come on people, share your thoughts and opinions here!
Anyway, here is what I received in that email, which was a response to this post, Opinionated Book Review: Ted Nugent- Ted, White, and Blue.
Mr Nugent’s hypocrisy:
1) Regarding promoting war while being a draft dodger (you will not want to google what he claimed to have done to avoid the draft, it’s more than disgusting). You also neglected to mention that this man, who does not understand the trauma of war, advocates that health care and welfare for veterans be temporary. So he has even less respect for the sacrifice of health and peace of mind veterans make than the average recent Republican.
2) Regarding the expeditious execution of all paedophiles… would that be retroactive? Because at 21 years of age he started dating his future first wife when she was either 13 or 14 and I believe that is paedophilia under US law, and was in 1970. He’d certainly be listed on the sex offender’s register in the UK. Later in his 30′s he took out legal guardianship of a 17 year old Hawaiian girl to continue a relationship with her. That is pedophilia in 11US states.
Your site is shy on admitting who you people are but you have a perverted choice of role model.
Ted Nugent, in the above mentioned book, admitted that he was wrong back in those days, in Ted, White, and Blue, he says “I didn’t know if I was coming or going. I literally did not have a home of my own or an apartment. I slept on many a floor. I didn’t know anything, including how I got paid or even if I got paid for my music. I was young and naive. This is no excuse for my woeful and deep disconnect from the critical events of the world–and I don’t offer it as one–but it is the truth”.
That pretty much covers it all, I say. Back then, I guess he was a lefty liberal and didn’t even know it! That in itself explains a lot! The mugshot I found of the Nuge was not dated, but I believe it was some time ago, and yes he looks like a liberal to me! Regardless, he has admitted he was wrong, repented, and is doing as much as he can to help kids of today, not make the same mistakes that he did! Unlike Bill Ayers, he admitted he was wrong! Read the book if you have any doubts!
Now, back to the draft dodging issue, I found a website, News Hounds, and their slogan is “We watch Fox so you don’t have to.” Sounds just a bit biased wouldn’t you say? Follow that link to a post related to this subject and where I found the image below, that I will address now.
Here is an excerpt from that post.
(Nugent claims) that 30 days before his Draft Board Physical, he stopped all forms of personal hygiene. The last 10 days he ingested nothing but junk food and Pepsi, and a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine. That spectacle won Nugent a deferment.
Now my question is, what happened to the people that are all about tolerance? The very people that promote rehabilitation over punishment? Somehow the people on the left don’t practice what they preach, and will use anything to knock someone on the right! Funny how that is.
I know you can’t read all of what is on this form, click the image to go to that site and look at it if you wish, but the reason I have it here is to point out a serious flaw in that form that you can see.
The dates involved, written on this form, are 1964 through 1972, but, if you look at the bottom of the form it says JUL 77! If you have evr seen an official government form, they do not date them in the future! In fact, most of the time they are used for years, so, if this was a “real” form, wouldn’t it have a date no newer than JUL 77?
Regardless of Ted Nugents past, it is his present and future that interest me. Of course I loved his music, always have, he may have once been a far left nutjob at one time, shouldn’t that make the lefties that now critisize him feel like he is or was, one of them? Maybe it is the “was” that makes them mad?
OK, so Uncle Ted grew up, doesn’t that just prove that it is possible for all of us, to, “grow up”?
The next area to be addressed is that of pedophilia, there are many stories that can be referred to, but the one I found at OperationAwareness.com covers it well enough for this writer, so go there and read it, there are links there to other sources as well. like the article Ted Nugent wrote on wacotrib.com, that express his feelings about what should happen to John Couey. However, I see no proof of him being a pedophile, in the sense that John Couey is. OK, how many Rock Stars get it on with young women? Do you think anybody checks ID’s?
If you were to go after every entertainer that “inadvertantly” banged an underage fan, there wouldn’t be any left! There is a big difference between any “relations” that might occur under these conditions. After all, how old were Elvis and Priscilla? Get real, these girls wanted what ever happened to happen or they would not have been there! That is entirely different from a murderous preditor, don’t you think?
Here is my personal opinion on how us humans deal with our past. I believe that if you are a hard core sinner and then come to Jesus, you will become a hard core Christian and work just as hard at not being a sinner as you did to be one, the problem in that case is that we are all sinners! Another example, if you were an extreme liberal then become a conservative, odds are, you will be an extreme conservative! Just read Ted’s book, it will tell you all that you need to know about him!
