I know I’m a latecomer to this party, but it bears repeating. Nugent is quoted in a recent New Yorker article as proclaiming:
To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead…I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want ’em dead. Get a gun, and when they attack you shoot ’em.
at the 2005 NRA convention in Houston while he hosted the seminar ‘God, Guns and Rock ‘n’ Roll.’
I know he purposefully baits sensitve egalitarians such as myself with these inciting ejaculations that spew from his squirrel cheeks while he’s not performing hits from his 1984 album Penetrator (“Thunder Thighs” is my favorite). When hungrily eyeing the governorship of Michigan like the small, meaty animals that populate his extravegant compound, he had this to say about the current governor, Jennifer Granholm: “[She] is not doing an ugly job, but as the perfect woman, she is scrotumless.”
The first time I saw a live Nuge — that is to say, not on an album cover, which themselves are difficult to describe as ‘not live’ — was when he was on MTV cribs. He seemed like a nice enough guy — he was endlessly entertaining, and I’d probably get a kick out of drinking cream fizzes (he’s straight edge) with him and having him (almost?) kill me while showing me how to shoot a bow. And I’m sure he makes people really excited and stuff when they blast his music out of their trucks or see him at a show.
