Is Fox News Rewarding Ted Nugent For Incendiary, Misogynistic Rhetoric & Sexual Lyrics?

Reported by Priscilla - July 22, 2011 -

Laura Ingraham is upset that NBC provided a venue for the hip-hop entertainer Chris Brown because, she claims, NBC is rewarding him for his "bad" behavior and what, she claims, are nasty, sexual lyrics. But what, pray tell, is Fox News doing providing an occasional stage, on the Huckabee show, for the radical right wing, draft dodging Ted Nugent - considering his history of inflammatory comments including one in which he invited Hillary Clinton, whom he described as a "worthless bitch," to ride on his machine gun. What say about you about that, Laura? Oh, right. He's not a black rapper; but he is a right wing Jesus and gun loving conservative, so it's all good, right?

Wonder what Sister Laura would think of lyrics to "Cat Scratch Fever?" (which he sung to a Huckabee audience who either didn't get it or thought it was just dandy.) Here's a sample:

...The first time that I got it
I was just ten years old
I got it from some kitty next foor
I went and see the Dr. and
He gave me the cure
I think I got it some more...

I make the pussy purr with
The stroke of my hand
They know they gettin' it from me
They know just where to go
When they need their lovin man
They know I do it for free"

No, Laura, he's not talking about members of the feline kingdom. And how bout some "Wang, Dang, Sweet Poontang"

That Nadine, what a teenage queen
She come to town; she be foolin' around
She lookin' so clean, especi'lly down in between; what I like...

Wang dang, what a sweet poontang
A shakin' my thang as a rang-a-dang-dang in the bell
Down on the street you know she can't be beat
She's so sweet when she yanks on my meat
What the hell

No, Laura, he's not talking about his hamburger.

Nugent has, as detailed by Media Matters, a history of inflammatory rhetoric. A year ago, Nugent joked, on Neil Cavuto's show, about how he shoots pigs and would love to shoot "pig" politicians. He defended apartheid - a clearly racist position. He claims that Obama is "spitting on the Ten Commandments." And if Laura wants to talk about "degrading" comments, here's the aforementioned Clinton quote which also includes Barack Obama and Senator Diane Feinstein:

"I was in Chicago last week I said—Hey Obama, you might want to suck on one of these you punk? Obama, he’s a piece of shit and I told him to suck on one of my machine guns… Let’s hear it for them. I was in NY and I said hey Hillary—you might want to ride one of these into the sunset you worthless bitch… Since I’m in California, I’m gonna find– she might wanna suck on my machine gun! Hey, Dianne Feinstein, ride one of these you worthless whore. Any questions? Freeeeedom!”

So, Laura, it's just not evil black rappers who make misogynistic statements and to quote your comment about NBC, "Mike Huckabee is all giving him the applause line." Do you think that Chris Brown's lyric referring to his dick is worse than Ted Nugent's description of two esteemed Democratic women as "worthless" whores and bitches who should "ride" his machine gun? Do you think Fox News is rewarding him?
