Monica Crowley doesn’t just heart Ted Nugent and his sickening hate mongering. She wishes he would run for president. Yes, the guy who told then-candidate Barack Obama to “suck on my machine gun” and called Hillary Clinton “a worthless bitch” who should “ride into the sunset” on his machine gun is Crowley’s idea of a terrific candidate and, presumably, a great president.
During the Great American Panel segment on last night’s Hannity, guest host Crowley brought up the subject of the Republican primary and the lack of enthusiasm for Mitt Romney.
Panelist Bernard McGuirk, a Romney supporter, asked rhetorically, “What are you looking for, some rock ‘n roll Ted Nugent whack job in a suit?”
Crowley jumped in. “Yes, actually yes! Ted Nugent would be an amazing candidate!”
The next time Crowley whines about “attack politics,” let’s just remind her of what kind of viciousness she endorses and finds presidential.
Oh, and speaking of “attack politics,” Nugent also suggested all the legislators who passed health care reform should be killed.
But this is the kind of rhetoric a Fox News host not only tolerates but admires.
“Presidenterer-elect Nuge becomes a dirty pig for your freedoms. How do the Democrats stack up to real sacrifice?”
Sploogent is an avowed racist, sexist, chickenhawk a-hole . . . IOW, the perfect GOP candidate!
Ellen, you need to do a correction. The sentence should read: “But this is the kind of EXTREMIST RIGHT-WING rhetoric a Fox News host not only tolerates but admires.”
We all know that a “liberal” or “progressive” who makes such outrageous statements would be the subject of FoxNoise criticism for at least a month.
