Outspoken, liberty-loving author-rocker to pen exclusive weekly column
Exuding a love of liberty, guns and America that elicits either delight or dismay – depending on your perspective – the outspoken rock showman, humanitarian and TV host Ted Nugent debuts today as an exclusive WND columnist.
Nugent’s column, entitled “The Ted Offensive,” will appear on the news site each Thursday.
“Ted Nugent rocks,” said Joseph Farah, editor and chief executive officer of WND. “And I don’t mean just as a music star. He rocks as an outspoken entertainer who is so politically incorrect. We’re honored that he would choose WND to sound off about what’s on his mind every week.”
A passionate defender of Americans’ Second Amendment rights, Nugent this week went toe-to-toe with anti-gun CNN host Piers Morgan (scroll down for video).
Nugent told Morgan: “First of all, I’ve been monitoring your gun debates. Go ahead and take it to the bank: You’ll never understand. I really don’t believe you’ll ever grasp – you don’t understand that it’s a simple inanimate tool that tens of millions of American families own that have never caused a problem, never had an accident and will never commit a crime. You have these aberrations that are such a minute percentage.”
Nugent made news last April for controversial comments he made during the NRA’s annual members meeting in St. Louis. The support Americans subsequently gave Nugent spiked sales of a “Ted Nugent for President!” bumper sticker.
In his debut column for WND today, Nugent writes about gun-control attempts: “For one free man to attempt to tell another free man what legal products he should or should not be able to own is the most gross and irresponsible bastardization of freedom I can imagine. But then again, I’m not a helpless, feckless, spineless, bloodsucking sheep waiting for direction.”
