Yes That’s Right–Ted Nugent and Texas Politics and the Dog Whistle

Ted Nugent would normally be of no interest, except as a minor curiosity. Only, he’s being welcomed into the GOP political fold as a supporter to a Republican candidate in Texas. The point is that even Wolf Blitzer noticed that Nugent’s language, in the astounding offensive quote, is closely related to language used by Nazis in describing Jews. In fact, it’s identical, as translation from German. But the GOP still embraces him. He’s also threatened the President’s life. And Nugent has admitted having sex with underage girls–he could’ve done 50 years in jail for that, if he’d been prosecuted. And he got out of the draft by crapping his pants, on purpose, at the induction center. And yet still the GOP embraces him. Note the phrase ‘subhuman mongrel’… Nugent: “if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama” …this isn’t subtle racism.

It has been suggested that the GOP in Texas likes the fact that Nugent used racist phrases discussing the President, because of the Dog Whistle effect. There are Certain Voters they want to attract.
