Poor, poor Ted Nugent. He’s all upset because those nasty gun-hating liberals have kept him out of the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame.
Gun-toting, washed up rock star and Donald Trump sycophant Ted Nugent is blaming Jann Wenner, Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame Foundation member, for not allowing him to be inducted into Rock-n-Roll’s ultimate accolade.
During an interview on Albany radio station Q103, Nugent complained in a tone and manner eerily reminiscent of Donald Trump,
He hates the Second Amendment. He hates me because I am on the board of directors of the National Rifle Association… That’s the only reason I’m not in the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame. Go to my Facebook; I have tens of millions of Facebookers from all around the world, and everybody loves the music.
Facebookers? New one on me!
But let’s get to the meat of the matter: Ted Nugent’s music. Now, I admit that I used to sing along with “Cat Scratch Fever”, although the only words I ever knew from that song was the title. But those lyrics are pure … well, they’re dreck – and that’s putting it nicely. Actually, they are a misogynistic anthem, and I won’t bother to write them here, but if you really want to read them, here they are. Just be sure to have plenty of soap and water on hand because they’ll leave you feeling rather filthy. I never actually heard them when he was “singing” them, because Ted isn’t much of a singer.
I tend to agree with a REAL talent, David Crosby, who has been inducted into the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame TWICE for his contributions to the Byrds and Crosby, Stills & Nash (one of my all-time favorite tunes is “Southern Cross”).
Mr. Crosby was responding to a tweet directed at him, asking his thoughts on Nugent’s claim:
@thedavidcrosby ted Nugent recently said political correctness is keeping him out of the Rock and Roll hall of fame..do you agree?

Behold Mr. Crosby’s Tweet:
No the asshole just isn't good enough https://t.co/tiJ4rJaX4S

The Mercury News reports that: “In a follow-up tweet, Crosby added that Nugent’s hit single, ‘Cat Scratch Fever,’ didn’t qualify him for the honor.”
To be clear: Ted Nugent is a piece of human flotsam who bragged about pooping in his pants to avoid the draft, who bragged about having sex with under-age girls, and who thinks killing endangered species is fun.
Hanging out in the White House with losers Kid Rock, Sarah Palin, and Der Fuhrer Trump does not a Hall of Famer make.
