Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

You don't get my support just because you like guns.

Among other things, this is a gun blog. I like guns. I am a member of Gun Culture (X iteration). I demand that my rights to keep and bear be arms be respected as a citizen.

Because so many famous people are outspokenly against gun culture, it can be refreshing to find some who are not. We gun people often embrace them, saying "One of us! One of us!!!" 

Ted Nugent, the rock star from the 1970s who has experienced a resurgence in popularity, has banked quite a bit on being a supporter of the Second Amendment to the US Constitution. He likes guns a lot, and has never in the last twenty years shied away from that fact. He wears camouflage most of the time, and features firearms in his concerts. He has managed to attain a position on the NRA board. Well and good, right?

Except that he is perpetually an ass, of an uncommon variety.
He threatened to use any means necessary, including illegal means, to prevent a sitting President from being POTUS again. He in the past supported Apartheid. He referred to our former President, a man of mixed race, as a "subhuman mongrel." Back in 1978, the 30 year-old arranged to become the legal guardian of his 17 year-old girlfriend. After a mass-shooting at the Stoneman-Douglas high school in Parkland, Florida, the man said, of children who had survived an ordeal involving 17 deaths and 17 injuries, that the kids who spoke out "have no soul."

This past week, the man posted:
A glorious moment of clarity truth logic commonsense American hallelujah amen from a good friend of mine! All together now-No Shit!Okay, I've had about enough of this immigration bullshit going on. So I've come up with my own plan... let me know if this gets the Uncle Ted seal of approval!If you come here you must speak the language, you must be a professional, we don't want any more unskilled workers; there's no special classes in school for bilingual students, there's no special ballots for voting, there's no government business done in any language but English; you do not have a right to vote or hold any office as a foreigner; you're not allowed to be a burden to the taxpayers, we don't want any welfare going out to illegals Or any able bodied human beings; if you come here we want you to invest but it has to be at least 40,000 times our daily minimum wage and if you buy land, you must relinquish all the rights to that property and you can never own waterfront property!
You're not allowed to protest politically, there is no flag waving from any other country; you're not allowed to badmouth our President, you're a foreigner, if you don't like living here, get out! If you come here illegally, you go to jail!
Now, if you don't like my harsh immigration policy, then you need to complain to the Mexican Government because this is the laws on their books currently!
Go to Mexico and protest and see how long you last!
God bless America everybody else can kiss my free ass!

Reading Nugent's original post, I had to re-read it.
I honestly originally thought that it was satire.
Why do we suffer this asshole to be associated with us in any way?
What, exactly, would it take for him to say, before we as a movement would divorce him completely? Does he have to literally and specifically call for lynchings? Would pedophilia be enough?

 SAYING "I LIKE GUNS" SHOULD NOT BE OLLIE OLLIE OXEN FREE FOR BEING A DICK, NO MATTER HOW FAMOUS YOU ARE.SAYING "I LIKE GUNS" SHOULD NOT BE OLLIE OLLIE OXEN FREE FOR BEING A DICK, NO MATTER HOW FAMOUS YOU ARE.


And, yes, I'm thinking about others as well.
