    This would be true of Bill O'Reilly certainly.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    Nugent: A no talent hack

    Is this how you define no talent?

    Buff,
    Its a generalization but its also true. ;) Sorry that you are guilty by association but that is all; I know you aren't like that.

    Remember when the rapper Common was invited to the Obama White House? How he was called a thug and everything short of the n-word by Faux and the right-wing media?

    Speaking of Ted Nugent and rappers...remember when a former rapper turned rocker was invited to the White House?

    Its a couple of LGBT activists visiting the White House in 2012.

    I know its whataboutism but I couldn't resist. Tacky knows no creed, color or party.
  • tim_stim_s Senior Member Posts: 1,846 Senior Member
    yeah, and the Whitehouse in 2012 understood that behavior was below the institution:

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2012/06/24/white-house-criticizes-visitors-flipping-off-reagan-portrait/


    while i can kind of agree with the dude above's statement: “Yeah, f Reagan,” reiterates Hart one week after the reception. “Ronald Reagan has blood on his hands. The man was in the White House as AIDS exploded, and he was happy to see plenty of gay men and **** people die. He was a murderous fool, and I have no problem saying so. Don’t invite me back. I don’t care.”

    That Whitehouse jumped all over him.....


    the current Whitehouse sees nothing wrong with having a **** like Nugent as an invited guest, because the Walmart Whitehouse just wants to the value of still trying to prove Trump is a populist President out there draining the swamp, dontcha know......even while his actions prove the exact opposite, it is the tweets and photo ops that matter........next week it will be "here, hold by bud light while I drive the NASCAR pace car, and all will be well in Trump-world

    Did anybody on the left celebrate this behavior?

    I understand the anger that LGBT activists feel towards Reagan who all but ignored the "Gay Plague," (because it was God's will) but not in the White House.

    One difference is that neither of these miscreants was nominated by the Democratic Party to run for the Vice Presidency, and, one hopes, never would be. Another is what Tim S linked to - the official response.

    I like the break away from the norm and how The Nuge and Kid Rock in the white house make liberals squirm. So much better than the PC...

    I don't mind Kid Rock. He puts out some decent music.

    You just don't get it, do you? It's not about being in the White House, it's about their behavior in the White House.

    There is stuff you do in a road house or an red neck bar that you just don't do in the President's house, at least not in the public areas. Who knows what the Groper-in-Chief and P***n got into in the private quarters? :)

    Similar to how Beyonce and Jay-Z gave conservatives seizures?

    I'm sure some did and do. I could go right now and find someone to justify and celebrate it with a two minute google search. In fact, this comes fairly close:
    I understand the anger that LGBT activists feel towards Reagan who all but ignored the "Gay Plague," (because it was God's will)

    I somehow doubt that Reagan, the happy warrior and Hollywood actor felt that way or would say something like that. I think I would have remembered, since even at the time comments like that (from Fallwell and Pat Robertson and the like) were not well-received. But, feel free to provide proof--if you have it.

    When did aids come to the US? 80? 81? So it was a new thing?

    Yeah, thought so.

    It is a historical fact

    Reagan's communications director Pat Buchanan argued that AIDS is "nature's revenge on gay men."

    Feel free to find one prominent democrat or even pundit. I doubt you could or Hannity and company would have jumped all over it.
