Political expert Ted Nugent is once again spreading love on the planet.

Nugent spoke at the Lincoln Day Dinner of the Republican Party of Maricopa County, Arizona, last weekend, where he was introduced by the notorious Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

He told the crowd that military veterans are committing suicide because of President Obama: “Here’s your job, Republican Party. Twenty to 25 of those guys kill themselves every day, and they haven’t told you why and they haven’t told anybody else why but they told me why: because the commander-in-chief is the enemy.”

Interesting that this draft-avoider is saying this wearing fatigues, clothing he refused to wear when he didn’t want to serve in Vietnam.

    Isn’t he supposed to be dead, or in jail?

    The following article was published in 2008.

    Ted you are a lying scumbag; with all due apologies to the rest of the lying scumbags of the world.

    So f*ck you. Preferably using something very long and very, very sharp.

    VA Hid Suicide Risk, Internal E-Mails Show


    But in this e-mail to his top media adviser, written two months ago, Katz appears to be saying something very different, stating: “Our suicide prevention coordinators are identifying about 1,000 suicide attempts per month among veterans we see in our medical facilities.”

    Katz’s e-mail was written shortly after the VA provided CBS News data showing there were only 790 attempted suicides in all 2007 – a fraction of Katz’s estimate.

    “This 12,000 attempted suicides per year shows clearly, without a doubt, that there is an epidemic of suicide among veterans,” said Paul Sullivan of Veterans for Common Sense.

    Wait…20-25 veterans commit suicide every day and they told ted why? So ted’s claiming he speaks to the dead?

    • Roctuna April 3rd, 2015 at 8:44 am

      Well he’s brain-dead so he’s part way there.

    Nugent pooped his pants to avoid service. He has no right to use the service of others and their eventual suicide as a lame azz talking point. The people that still listen to him should be ashamed.

  6. Winslow Bunny April 2nd, 2015 at 9:40 pm

    Really, Teddy, are you sure the military veterans weren’t listening to your music at the time? That, alone, would be enough to send those poor people into a depressed state. The other option is that you were wearing the same pants that you wore to the draft board for your induction, and the smell was just too much. 45+ year old poop will have some bad effects.

  7. alpacadaddy April 2nd, 2015 at 9:49 pm

    Is it just me, or is this Faux Noize prop THE very least reputable source of input on the needs of America’s Vets? Precisely what life experiences has this one or two-hit ,hate-filled has-been draft-dodging RWNJ accomplished that would possibly justify him offering ANY opinion whatsoever? Other than a long overdue apology for being openly bigoted and outspokenly racist coward hypocrite?

    I missed the VN draft by less than 30 days, and although I vehemently disagreed, I would have gone, just as I disagreed with Iraq but supported my son going. I support the troops, but not the politicians and business interests who seek power & profit from war.

    FU Ted… go back home and stew in your stool some more!

  8. bpollen April 2nd, 2015 at 9:57 pm

    I’m gonna kill myself. What’s Nugent’s number? If you think PTSD is damaging, just come down with ODS and see where THAT leaves ya! My last words: Obummer Nobama!

  9. Herb Sarge Phelps April 2nd, 2015 at 11:03 pm

    As a veteran of the Vietnam era, I ask this crappie pants to kiss off.

    • mrbigstuff April 4th, 2015 at 8:19 am

      As a veteran of Vietnam era too I totally agree he didn’t want to be drafted I signed up when i was in 12th grade he is a shameless phony

  10. Jake April 2nd, 2015 at 11:36 pm

    Why is this paedophile wearing military duds – is that supposed to make us think he is not a yellow-bellied Republican coward who let someone else’s son or daughter go to Vietnam in his place?

  11. Dwendt44 April 3rd, 2015 at 12:04 am

    Those drugs he was using back then had a serious affect on brain function.
    A crappy pants, draft dodging pedophile with brain damage.

  12. jybarz April 3rd, 2015 at 12:16 am

    Poopy pants pedophile, please die!
    You’re so repulsive!

  13. rg9rts April 3rd, 2015 at 2:58 am

    Thanks for the input HERO

  14. Warman1138 April 3rd, 2015 at 5:14 am

    What’s the deal with Nugent? What’s in it for him? Is it money, publicity, socializing with sociopaths or whatever, what? The guy makes no sense…. unless…. he’s enriching himself somehow from the baselessness of his rhetoric. And to top it off people fall for it and conservatives help parrot his nonsense. I don’t know how they do it…..Whenever I expose myself to anything from Mr. Nugent it feels like I’ve driven over a dead skunk with the windows down on a hot day.

  15. causeican April 3rd, 2015 at 7:20 am

    This azzwipe hasn’t earned the right to talk about U.S.veterans

    • MarcoZandrini April 6th, 2015 at 7:02 pm

      Amen brother!

  16. Suzanne McFly April 3rd, 2015 at 8:38 am

    Let me fix this for you…”because the last commander-in-chief was a friggin idiot and his vice president was the enemy.”…..There, now the statement is correct dumba$$.

  17. William April 3rd, 2015 at 9:08 am

    So Theodore, the guy who lived in his own excrement to avoid serving his country has an opinion on veterans affairs? (I’m beginning to think the excrement got the raw end of that deal).

  18. ExPFCWintergreen April 3rd, 2015 at 12:18 pm

    And Ted knows all about being a hard-core combat veteran

  19. Shades April 3rd, 2015 at 1:01 pm

    Soooo, 20-25 guys commit suicide every day after talking to Ted Nugent. Got it.

  20. Jack E Raynbeau April 3rd, 2015 at 1:11 pm

    Nugent is as delusional as Pat Robertson.

    • granpa.usthai April 5th, 2015 at 9:29 pm

      maybe they’re dancing partners at the airport restroom stall gala?

  21. Bunya April 3rd, 2015 at 7:27 pm

    Oh yeah. Like Ted Nugent is so concerned with the welfare of our veterans. A man who employed extreme measures to avoid serving, is now a spokesperson for our veterans? Where was his concern back in the ’60’s and 70’s? Ted Nugent is an embarrassment to this country.

  22. allison1050 April 4th, 2015 at 11:07 am

    And the vets told HIM why they committed suicide? Okay little Teddy.

  23. allison1050 April 4th, 2015 at 11:07 am

    And the vets told HIM why they committed suicide? Okay little Teddy.

    I was wondering what veterans and service members actually make of the rantings of Ted Nugent, so took a look over at Stars and Stripes for the troo fax.

    They kind of avoid talking about Ted altogether, and a timeline of articles involving Ted shows the increasing discomfort with a guy who seemed at first to be mostly apolitical, but like many of our current crop of conservative extremists, seems to have found his current hardliner political stance as a result of the events of 9/11/2001.

    In other words, Ted was the perfect foil for terrorism, and in his case at least Al Qaeda succeeded.perfectly in turning an American into a gibbering mass of fear-based madness.

    As for that timeline I mentioned, start with this pre-1977-High-Times-interview (in which Ted essentially sneers at the stupid military that tried to draft him): Ted Nugent Shoots a Mean Guitar (1976), which captures the Ted I knew best from my youth, full of himself, yes (speaks in the third person a lot), but still there’s that irresistible energy and enthusiasm that made him hard not to like back then.

    A lengthy silence, until another article from a clearly adoring service member who caught up with him at a show in Germany, Will the Real Ted Nugent Please Stand Up (1984), which isn’t about what you might think it would be. Although a fairly lengthy bio is provided, amazingly no mention is made of the draft dodging stuff.

    Lastly, an article from 2004 describes a USO-sponsored show Ted put on with “Angry American” Toby Keith in Germany, and the title is telling inasmuch as it makes no mention whatsoever of The Nuge, illustrating the uncomfortable arms-length the service gives Ted since he went completely batshit: Country Singer Toby Keith Shows Support for US Troops on USO Sponsored Tour (2004). By this time Ted was in full wingnut mode, with unhinged “liberal retards” comment to prove it.

    So Ted’s deeply offensive comments regarding vets and the service in general are simply never mentioned aloud, in conspicuous silence.

    Lastly, a Fun Fact To Know And Tell: Dd you know that Ted’s Father was a career Army Staff Sergeant?

    im sorry ted That’s the wrong president
    Lets review……

  26. sqeptiq April 5th, 2015 at 9:18 pm

    If both Ted Nugent and Pat Dollard’s lithium supply ran out at the same time, which one would get the idea he was a squirrel and run up a tree carrying a bunch of nuts first?

  27. granpa.usthai April 5th, 2015 at 9:26 pm

    well, Teddy brown pants, America’s waiting…..
    (just think about being in the US Military today, with the current Commander in Chief and fulfill your stated obligation).
