Washed Up Rocker Ted Nugent Urges MAGA Faithful To ‘Go Berserk On The Skulls Of Democrats’

Just hours after an 18-year-old white supremacist killed 10 people at a grocery store in Buffalo, New York, washed-up rocker Ted Nugent told a crowd of Trump supporters that he hoped they would “go berserk on the skulls of Democrats.”

The Independent reports:

Performing at a Trump event in Austin, Texas, the 73-year-old told cheering supporters that Democrats were “the enemies of America” and repeated Donald Trump’s discredited “Big Lie” conspiracy that he was cheated out of victory in the 2020 election.

Nugent said he wanted “everyone in your life to think of what the enemies of America have done in the last 14 months.”

“And that they didn’t sneak into the White House – they lied, they cheated, they scammed. And every day the Democrats violate their sacred oath to the Constitution. And if you can’t impress your friends on that, they shouldn’t be your friends.”

After talking about his vintage guitar, he added: “So I love you people madly but I’d love you more if you went forward and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the communists.”

Shannon Watts, of the gun safety campaign group Moms Demand Action, slammed Nugent, asking why no one is willing to hold Republicans accountable for such disgusting pronouncements:

“Ted Nugent, former NRA Board member, to Donald Trump today during a rally that took place as a mass shooting by a white supremacist and conspiracy theorist unfolded at a grocery store in a Black neighborhood in Buffalo.

“When will we hold the GOP accountable for this hate speech?”

Of course, hate speech is nothing new for Nugent. In 2012, he threatened the life of President Barack Obama:

“Obama, he’s a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun.”

Sounds like Ted needs to suck on a nice long prison term for making terroristic threats.

Buttigieg Calls Out ‘Hateful’ Right-Wingers Spreading ‘Replacement Theory’ That Spawned Buffalo Shooting

Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg made it clear Sunday that the Biden administration does indeed see the mass shooting that took place in Buffalo on Saturday as a hate crime and that some right-wingers have helped spread the sort of hatred that allegedly led Payton Gendron to shoot and kill 10 people, most of them black.

Buttigieg was a guest on “Face the Nation,” and was asked by host Margaret Brennan if there needs to be a new law that would make domestic terrorism a crime. The secretary replied:

“This would be a good day for every politician in this country — left, right and center — every media figure in this country — left, right and center — to come out and unequivocally condemn white nationalism, so-called ‘replacement theory’ and any other hateful ideology that could have contributed to something like this.”

“Replacement theory” asserts that white Americans are being replaced by immigrants and minorities as some sort of master plan by Democrats to create a permanent hold on government. Among the most vocal proponents of this bogus theory are Fox News hosts Tucker Carlson and Laura Ingraham.

Under the guise of the First Amendment, many on the right have been saying for years that there’s a massive conspiracy afoot to take political power away from whites in the United States. But that change has been taking place for decades as demographic changes happen and many whites have fewer children. It’s not a conspiracy, however. Despite what loons such as Tucker Carlson or his ilk say, the world is not out to get them.

Here’s a thought: If Carlson and others who push replacement theory are so worried, why don’t they start having bigger families? Carlson has four children, but maybe he and his wife should have several more.

Or perhaps Carlson and others on the right need to sit down and stop spreading dangerous lies that inspire people to kill others.

Right-Wingers Compare Elon Musk’s Purchase Of Twitter To Lincoln Freeing The Slaves

Today was the day that billionaire Elon Musk finally got his way and formally purchased Twitter, which may or may not be a good thing, depending on who you ask.

CNN reported on the deal:

Twitter said Monday it has agreed to sell itself to Elon Musk in a roughly $44 billion deal that has the potential to expand the billionaire’s business empire and put the world’s richest man in charge of one of the world’s most influential social networks.

The deal, which will take the company private, caps off a whirlwind period in which the Tesla and SpaceX CEO became one of Twitter’s largest shareholders, was offered and turned down a seat on its board and bid to buy the company — all in less than a month.

Under the terms of the deal, shareholders will receive $54.20 in cash for each share of Twitter stock they own, matching Musk’s original offer and marking a 38% premium over the stock price the day before Musk revealed his stake in the company.

After the deal was finalized, Musk put out this statement:

“Free speech is the bedrock of a functioning democracy, and Twitter is the digital town square where matters vital to the future of humanity are debated,” Musk said in the statement. “I also want to make Twitter better than ever by enhancing the product with new features, making the algorithms open source to increase trust, defeating the spam bots, and authenticating all humans. Twitter has tremendous potential – I look forward to working with the company and the community of users to unlock it.”

However, those who had been begging Musk to make the Twitter purchase and immediately reinstate the account of failed, one-term, twice-impeached former President Donald Trump are probably going to be crestfallen to learn that the failed ex-president says he won’t go back to the platform:

“No, I won’t be going back on Twitter,” the former president told CNBC’s Joe Kernen.

“I will be on Truth Social within the week. Its on schedule. We have a lot of people signed up. I like Elon Musk. I like him a lot. He’s an excellent individual. We did a lot for Twitter when I was in the White House. I was disappointed by the way I was treated by Twitter. I won’t be going back on Twitter.”

And yet, to hear right-wingers tell it, today was the greatest single moment in U.S. history since Lincoln freed the slaves. Here’s some of what was being said by the MAGA dolts on social media:

Listen carefully, and in the background you can hear Lincoln, Washington, Jefferson, and Adams (among others) spinning in their graves.

WATCH: Right-Wing ‘People’s Convoy’ Gets Run Out Of Neighborhood By Egg-Throwing Residents

The so-called “People’s Convoy” of truckers and other right-wing nutjobs opposed to COVID restrictions (the vast majority of which have been lifted) decided to take their protest to California, but they picked the wrong neighborhood and were quickly dispatched by residents who tossed eggs at their vehicles.

Convoys of truckers shut down the Ambassador Bridge connecting Canada and the United States back in February, but attempts to mimic those protests here in the U.S. have been met with apathy and anger, as commuters quickly grew tired of seeing big rigs blocking the highways as they attempted to make their way to work on time.

On Friday, a group of protesters took their trucks to a San Francisco suburb to show disapproval of Democratic Assemblymember Buffy Wicks’ support for an abortion bill and were run out of town, according to the San Francisco Gate:

Livestreams posted by convoy participants show police arriving to protect Wicks’ home, which eventually prompted the group to move on. It was here they made their mistake, driving onto busy, one-lane College Avenue on the Berkeley-Oakland border. There, slowed down by the usual Friday afternoon traffic, they were sitting ducks outside the Safeway. A large group of kids, armed with eggs purchased at the grocery store, began pelting the convoy.

Even better was that some of the truckers were stupid enough not to take proper precautions and literally wound up with egg on their faces:

A few ill-advised convoy drivers had their windows rolled down, resulting in eggs splattering the insides of their vehicles. Passersby watched in confusion and amusement, with some adults stopping to cheer on the kids. Furious truckers then drove out of town, heading back on the highway toward their base in Sacramento. According to CB radio captured by the livestream audio, truckers complained about needing to wash their vehicles and seemed shocked at how poorly received they were by locals.

Karma is a wonderful thing when it slaps people who are richly deserving of being taken down a few notches.

Financial Weight Of Multiple Lawsuits Has Alex Jones On The Brink Of Bankruptcy: Report

Right-wing conspiracy theorist Alex Jones is on the verge of filing for bankruptcy as the weight of multiple lawsuits against him is causing severe financial stress, according to a report from Bloomberg.

Companies owned by far-right radio host Alex Jones are getting advice from restructuring advisers and considering options including a potential bankruptcy filing after being hit by lawsuits over Jones’s conspiracy theories, according to a person with knowledge of the matter.

A Chapter 11 filing would aim to allow Jones’s businesses, such as Infowars and Free Speech Systems, to keep operating while pausing civil litigation against them, said the person, who asked not to be identified because the discussions are private.

Just last year, Jones and his companies were found liable of defamation in a lawsuit brought by relatives of the 20 children who died in the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting. Jones labeled the shootings fake and a hoax, suggesting they were part of a “false flag” operation that would allow the U.S. government to impose new gun control regulations. The full value of the damages that will be imposed on Jones has not yet been decided, but could well total in the tens of millions of dollars.

Attorneys for Jones have asserted that their client’s First Amendment rights are being violated and that he had an absolute right to make the comments about the Sandy Hook massacre.

However, legal experts have noted that no one has a right to spread outright lies and bogus conspiracy theories in order to get ratings and raise money. Such actions are clearly beyond the scope of the protections afforded by the Constitution.

Jones has also been accused of transferring money from his company in an effort to hide his assets. According to attorneys for the Sandy Hook families, Jones began those transfers shortly after they filed their defamation suit in 2018. He allegedly transferred $18 to an entity called  PQPR, which is said to be controlled by Jones or members of his family.
