Ted Nugent is a conservative wild-man! When liberals and bloggers decided to protest a scheduled concert in Idaho, they shamelessly used the race card against him. And it worked.
But that didn’t stop the 65-year old Nugent from firing back! Always up for a fight, he made it clear that you can call him many things – a hunter, a rock legend, an outdoorsman, and a promoter of healthy living – but NOT a racist. And his response is so tough that his critics didn’t know what hit them. BOOM!
“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” Nugent said in a recent interview with Gannett Wisconsin Media. “Put your heart and soul into everything you do and nobody can stop you. Sometimes you give the world the best you got and you get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you got anyway.”
The outspoken rocker took some time to respond to a few questions via email while on the SHUTUP & JAM! tour. He said he’s always had critics.
“By all indicators, I don’t think they actually qualify as people, but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people,” Nugent said.
