Ted Nugent: Obama Represents Everything Bad About Humanity + Romney All That is Good
Ted Nugent is one of the most politically outspoken rock stars in the world. It's no secret that Nugent is strongly against Barack Obama and endorses Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, but Nugent has now painted the two politicians on polar opposite sides. Nugent recently stated, "I am saddened to admit that Obama represents everything bad about humanity and Romney pretty much all that is good."
In the world of rock music, the political ideologies of both musicians and fans tend to lean towards the left. However, prominent musicians such as Dave Mustaine, Johnny Ramone and Joe Perry have been vocal about their conservative views. Ted Nugent is also one of those musicians, and has become a controversial figure to many.
During an interview with the Broward-Palm Beach New Times, Nugent was asked what rock bands he would compare both Romney and Obama to. The musician replied, "Out and out politicians are anathema to rock and roll, so I hesitate to attempt to connect the two. But on important issues, I am saddened to admit that Obama represents everything bad about humanity and Romney pretty much all that is good. It is really that stark."
Speaking about the Second Amendment and other "God-given rights," Nugent revealed why he has chosen to be so vocal with his political beliefs. He explained, "I saw the curse of apathy metastasize across this great country and the horrific attempt of evil politicians to infringe on these sacred rights through this increasingly opening door. I decided early on that we the people have a moral bound duty to remain engaged and halt those daring to infringe."
