Earlier this week, we wrote about how right-wing nutjob, insensitive dickhead, and Putin sympathizer Ted Nugent urged the audience at a Trump rally to “[go] berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the Communists.” Now, Nugent is claiming that this was just a figure of speech — after saying he wants to “beat the shit” out of his opponents.
In case you forgot, Ted took the stage at a Trump rally in Austin and said the following:
“…force, if I do say so myself, everyone in your life to think of what the enemies of America have done over the last 14 months…They didn’t sneak into the White House — they lied, they cheated, they scammed, and everyday the Democrats violate their sacred oath to the Constitution. And if you can’t impress you friends on that, they shouldn’t be your friends.
“I love you people madly, but I’d love you more if you went forward and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the Communists.”
For the record, here’s what I wrote after quoting Ted in our last post:
So first off, to get in front of it, here’s how Ted’s going to explain this away: he’s going to say he means a war of knowledge and information. He’s going to claim that when he said “berserk on the skulls,” he meant that he wanted those in attendance to challenge the thinking of these “enemies of America.”
And guess what, I was fuckin’ right:
“I know it makes you wanna just beat the shit out of these people ’cause they’re so bad. I’m talking about beating the shit out of bad people that are ruining America…I’m not gonna beat the shit out of ’em. We’re gonna beat the shit out of ’em at the voting booth. So everybody, relax with their I need to pound it into their skulls, ‘Nugent pounding skulls.’ No, it’s a colloquialism. Now, my critics don’t know what the word ‘colloquialism’ means, so we’ll just wait for them to go to their Webster’s dictionary and Google it. ‘Pounding it into their skulls’ is a historical colloquialism and evidence to support the truth, logic and common sense into the minds of idiots. You don’t really pound skulls; it’s a figure of speech. How embarrassing that the author of ‘Wango Tango’ has to explain this to the haters. But they already know — they just like to hate. They just live a lie. They’re all liars. All my critics are either liars or just rotten, nasty people.”
Ted, can you read, man? Like, can your brain understand words? I don’t say I want to beat the shit out of people when I actually mean I want to best them in the polls. I don’t tell a crowd to “go berserk on the skulls” of people when I want them to convince those people of an idea. Is English not your first language?
