This Week In Crazy: David Crosby Faces Fire, Fury From Ted Nugent

Crazy

Statue fetishists, blubbering neo-Nazis, and Cat Fight Fever. Welcome to This Week In Crazy, The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Scott Adams

The Dilbert cartoonist is secondarily known as an inflammatory right-wing Twitter kook. His response to the weekend’s deadly clash between neo-Nazis and “antifa” protesters at the “Unite the Right” rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, was no exception. On Wednesday, Adams tweeted what I’ll admit I at first thought was a sarcastic response to President Donald Trump’s continued both-sides-ism during an impromptu presser at Trump Tower on Tuesday:

Everybody knows that one guy in the office that listens to NPR, canvassed for Bernie last year, and gets all jacked up at the sight of a hunking Confederate general cast in copper. Y’know, a “pro-statue” kind of guy.

Of course, that guy doesn’t exist and so he wasn’t marching with a TIKI torch on Friday nor ramming down dozens of counter-protesters on Saturday.

    Michelle Bachmann? Chaplain to the UN? I would love to see the look on her face when that organization tells her the does not have any UN credentials and any attempt to sermonize to the crowd will be considered an act of trespass and removal with a subsequent pair of court orders – a “Cease and Desist” to the claim of title, and one requiring her to be a minimum of 100 yards from any entrance to any UN facility.

    Ted Nugent is the perfect spokesman for the deplorable right. Crosby is right about one thing, Nugent isn’t good enough to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. He is a good candidate to be fitted for a straitjacket like 45 is right now

    Poor Teddy. He’s sooooo passe and inconsequential. He doesn’t even have Obama to shoot at any more. He thinks that because he’s a one-hit-wonder that he belongs in the Hall of Fame. Hall of Infamous maybe, but that’s about it.

    Bachmann likes to get her name in the news every now and again, as does Palin. They like to pretend that they’re relevant.

      They like to pretend they have triple-digit I.Q.s

      Exactly. How can we miss them if they won’t go away?

    The protesters were not protesting the statues. They were protesting the nazis and the KKK.

    As someone who has been listening to rock and roll since the 1960s, and who has tremendous admiration for the talents of such people as the Beatles, Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, the Everly Brothers, and many more from the 1970s and 1980s, I well know who Crosby, Stills, and Nash are, and know that they had a great amount of influence on the development of rock and roll, and put out some really good albums of music. On the other hand, if it were not for his right wing political statements and support of the unrestricted use of guns by every nutcase, I might have never heard of Ted Nugent.

      I’ll second that, and raise you ten years, since my musical education began with Jimmy Reed, Howlin’ Wolf, Buddy Holly, Jerry Lee Lewis, and more. As Crosby suggests, Nugent lacks the outstanding talent necessary to join those already in the hall of fame, and that has nothing to do with his politics.

      And that’s not a slam against Nugent, since he obviously has some licks, but then again, so do thousands of other rock musicians. If the HoF lowered the bar enough for Nugent to qualify, then the whole point of giving the honor is wasted.

    David Crosby, what ever you do don’t kiss that ass.
