Not only is he a loudmouthed bigot but he enjoys stretching the truth to make himself look more important that he really is.
Until last week, Ted Nugent was best known as a rock musician, a bow hunter, and an ardent supporter of gun rights. But his recent description of President Barack Obama as a “subhuman mongrel” eclipsed all of that, especially at a time when he has campaigned on behalf of a Texas Republican candidate for governor. Those words are rooted in Nazi anti-Semitic propaganda and the writings of white supremacists.
The uproar drew a terse apology from the singer of hits such as “Cat Scratch Fever.” But in an interview with CNN’s Erin Burnett, he insisted that he had not drawn on the rhetoric of racist literature. At least for the word “mongrel,” Nugent said the word was used in his time in law enforcement.
“I’ve been a cop in Lake County, Michigan, since 1982 thereabout. I conduct federal raids with the DEA and ATF and U.S. Marshals and the FBI and Texas Rangers and heroes of law enforcement.
But it turns out he was REALLY stretching the truth here… He is a reservist for the county sheriff’s office but holds no official duties or authority. And he’s not been on raids as far as any of the officials noted.
They gave him a “pants on fire” rating for lying.
I think Ted is full of s**t about everything. Just a reminder of how special he thinks he is (from Wikipedia):
In a 1977 High Times article, Nugent stated that he took crystal meth and defecated in his pants in order to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War. Nugent reaffirmed this in a 1990 interview with Detroit Free Press, stating that “…a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine.” In other interviews, Nugent has denied this claim, stating that he dodged the draft by enrolling at Oakland Community College to get a student deferment. However, his Selective Service classification record shows ratings of 1-Y and 4-F for 1969 and 1972 respectively, indicating ineligibility for military service under established physical, mental, or moral standards, rather than student deferment.
In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so Nugent joined Massa’s parents in signing documents to make himself her legal guardian, an arrangement that Spin magazine ranked in October 2000 as #63 on their list of the “100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock”
