CNN finally gets face-to-face showdown with Ted Nugent; he’s armed and ready

Conservative rocker Ted Nugent went a few rounds with CNN’s Erin Burnett Monday, taking credit for the demise of Piers Morgan’s show and bickering over his apology for calling President Obama a “sub-human mongrel.”

Armed with proof that Obama used the controversial term “mongrel” himself on national TV, outspoken Nugent was prepared to stand his ground for the entire segment.

Burnett asked Nugent whether the apology was sincere, then read the word “mongrel” as it’s used in an Aryan Nations membership form.

You learn something new every day, Nugent said of Burnett’s information.

“For anyone to claim that I’m a racist or it had racist overtones is the typical crap that the propaganda ministry and the media — particularly most of your co-workers there, even though I got Piers Morgan’s ass thrown out, and I’ll do the same with Don Lemon and Wolf Blitzer when I can,” he said.

Burnett quickly defended the CNN hosts.

“Do me a favor, don’t talk about my colleagues that way,” she said. “I respect them both greatly.”

After a discussion about the names Nugent had called Hillary Clinton, the rocker said he would try to stop the name-calling.

“Whether it’s my wonderful wife, my brother, Jeff, and John or Kathy, my great kids, or someone like you, Erin, and people around me, they think I’ll be more effective if I back off that Detroit street fighter rock ‘n’ roll stage rhetoric,” he said.

Watch Nugent’s interview via CNN:

The rocker’s brother, former Neutrogena and Revlon CEO Jeff Nugent, appeared with Burnett Tuesday saying Ted needed to tone down his language.

“It’s a conversation we’ve been having for longer than you can imagine,” Jeff Nugent said. “And I think Ted referred to that last night because my advice to him over the years has been, ‘Please tone it down.’ And there’s a line that you shouldn’t cross. And his latest comments about President Obama and Hillary Clinton have crossed the line.”

    Poor Ted, his brother is an Obama supporter. Too bad.

    • seazen

      Yeah, poor Ted. He has to actually have the nonsense he says repeated back to him and his brother thinks for himself. Not only that, he is important only in his own mind.

      • Larry Miller

        I think you said that backward? boy,

        • fester0420

          Ted is a pedophile pantshitting fool.

      • auntielib

        Kinda like how the subhuman Barak keeps having the nonsense he says (that all colored people are “mongrel”) repeated back to him, huh?

      • Jerry

        I didn’t see you say anything about all the slander when the left talks about Laura Ingraham, Sara Palin, etc.

        • curmudgeon

          Keep in mind that their standards are always double!

          • ROHBAR

            Your meaning the leftist demonrats correct?

          • curmudgeon

            Mainly, but the RINO liberals are just as malignant. Perhaps more so as they hide behind the party label.

          • ROHBAR

            I ‘agree totally!

          • Naia McCoy

            Right or left…everyone has double standards!

          • curmudgeon

            True, and the proper label for them is hypocrite. I think you will find the condition far more in liberal circles however and perhaps among the religious sects who preach one way and scurry around in the dark satisfying their primal urges.

        • fester0420

          calling a stupid person stupid is not the same as being an out right racist. If you stand up for this fool, you are standing up for an admitted pedophile. Would you be cool with him banging your 13 yr old daughter?

        If he’s only important in his own mind, why is CNN interviewing him, and why are you taking time to comment on it?

        • seazen

          He is just reflective of the cartoonish nature of the media today. They all are trying to replace supermarket tabloids to entertain the most bored among us. Nugent works hard to be one of those on the cover. You know, he who screams the loudest ……..

            I cannot disagree with your analysis of this situation.

        And even at that, he’s still WAY more important than you. Little boy, with no accomplishments in life. Why, Sarah Palin, has a ton more accomplishments than little seazen or any other lib. Have a nice day, lib.

  • Don Sebold

    Not a big bush fan myself,but did vote for him because I love the constitution and the great opportunity we have in our nation…..but….lets be straight the left crucified him on every chance they got,plenty of hatred cae from CNN,MSNBC,and the ilk on the left..there is absolutely a double standard….I’ve yet to see anyone hold Winfrey to task for her racist remarks why is that…..does race give you a free pass?.. This is all BS….ted should have just drilled home the facts of the regime….he doesn’t owe anyone an explication…..does that dirt bag Maher get held accountable for the trash that lows out of his sewer……right on ted….there is one thing the left does consistently it shows who they fear by interviews like this one…..

    • SusieQ

      I may not have agreed with Ted’s choice of words but in the end he came across with his views in essence, Erin didn’t like that either. The double standard is very blatant, MSM seems to believe no one sees this. That’s why they are failing.

    • Jeff Simon

      The answer to your question is that YES, race DOES give you a free pass on charges of racism. So long as your race is not white.

  • car333

    I “LIKE” Obama.
    I would “LIKE” to see him out of the Black House.
    I would “LIKE” To see him heading back home to Kenya.
    I would “LIKE for him to stay in Kenya.

    • Ole Man

      Only his home isn’t Kenya.
      Too bad.

      • SusieQ

        I don’t think his father is from there either, just conjecture but……..

        • EliseR

          Where do you think his father is from?

          • SusieQ

            Hell.

          frank marshal davis is his real father look at the pictures and you will be amazed the likeness! Bet if the DNA was matched he would be the dad!

          • SusieQ

            I did see that comparison, amazing likeness.

      • auntielib

        And his mother isn’t black.

        • bamared2222

          All I know is what he says in his OWN BOOK, that he hung out with and took up the beliefs of Communists. That is what he is, through and through. He doesn’t want opposition, he wont accept a compromise, he doesnt want to obey the laws and follow the constitution and basically, he is now in dictator mode. The man is a Marxist and does not hide it.

          • psychosally

            I agree

      • Detfan1

        For once I agree with Ole man, the super progressive! I also think it is too bad that our imperialist President doesn’t currently reside in Kenya.

      • car333

        I think you are wrong, but either way he would fit right in over there.

        • Ole Man

          Why? Because he’s black?

          • Don’t Even Try It!

            He is actually white with only a little smidgen of black ;-)

          • FriendofThom

            Whereas you are 100% stupid racist.

          • Memphis Viking

            He’s half Kenyan. He’s as much Kenyan as he is American, and considering how much he hates America I can only assume he has more affinity with his Kenyan roots.

          • stags43

            His color has nothing to do with it. He is a traitor to our country, if he thinks he belongs here, and he is a traitor to his own people if he even considers himself a part of the black or white race. It isn’t a race issue, it is the whole country and what he is doing to all of us. One day you will wake up and it will be way too late.

          • ROHBAR

            His mother was white so is he black or is he white, what ever he is a liar!

          • psychosally

            oh boy another racist remark from the darkside

      • Bill Rabold

        If his real home is not Kenya, then where is it? Even the White House lawyers admitted the birth certificate was a fraud! They submitted 2 completely different ones in the Alabama case that is currently pending. The libtards and all the sheep that have been messmorhized by this con artist will finally be faced with the truth and then let’s see how truly patriotic they are and if they are willing to go by the Constitution and support having this ass clown prosecuted for fraud and treason! Every single one of you that fails to recognize what this con artist is doing needs a serious lesson in history. What amazes me is how smart, ambitious people in the media and then anybody that has been successful can not figure out who this guy is or they just don’t care!. Perhaps even more amazing is if they looked back in history, they’ll find it was the media that was the first to swallowed up by tyrants and evil people and then all they reported was want they were told. The ignorance of our press and media is befuddling and really sad. Freedom of speech could go the way of the dinosaurs and it’s happening on their watch and right under their noses.
        Don’t ever stop shouting from wherever you are Ted, and doubt back down, because nobody seems to be doing it, especially Congress who should be calling for a full blown investigation as to who this guy is, how did he get to the White House without any investigation, what charges should be brought against him, who else is involved, and what laws can be enacted to prevent this from happening again and what restraints need to be enacted, by law, to restrain the power of the President. After watching this ass clown shred the Constitution, I wonder just how motivated our elected officials are to do anything that might limit their power as well.

        • Ole Man

          You just keep right on taking your medicine and believing the fairy tales.

          • valmc

            How much are you being paid to be a professional troll? My guess is that you are on the ovomit payroll.

        • EliseR

          What WH lawyer admitted the President’s birth certificate is a fraud? You would think that would be big news if it actually happened.

          Obama has no reason to forge a birth certificate. Even if he was not born in the US (like Ted Cruz was not), Obama would be a citizen through his mother who was a citizen (like Ted Cruz.) Regardless, Obama has a perfectly legal birth certificate from Hawaii that no one as “admitted” or proven is fraudulent.

          • Bill Rabold

            I’m not really sure where you’re getting your news, but there is a pending case right now in the Alabama Supreme Court litigating his eligibility. When the lawyers for Obama submitted their briefs, the birth certificate was different than the one published thru the White House. Their explanation was that it didn’t matter they were different, since he’s already been elected. That didn’t fly to well in the face of the judges! Plus, scientifically the White House version has not only been proved to be a fraud, but the person who crafted the fraudulent document is known and will be forced to testify and hopefully prosecuted for taking part in this outrageous act of fraud, disception and treason against our nation!
            By the way, both parents have to be natural born US citizens to be president. Plus Obama’s mother was not an American citizen when he was born-she had renounced it beforehand and lastly why did Barry enter the country as a foreign student if he was in fact an American citizen!

          • EliseR

            Where is the proof of any of this nonsense that you spew?

          • FriendofThom

            Birther nuts believe what they want to believe.

          • Jeff Simon

            It was not a Birth Certificate. It is a “Certificate of Live Birth”. Not that Liberals care amout semantic details when it gets in the way of their mission to “Transform America”

            No, it is not the same thing as a Birth Certificate.

      • RE Hafner

        The Brits disagree with you. Seems if the Colonel Government has a record of his mother popping out a kid there.

      • stags43

        Yes it is, his wife said so on TV.

    • Sandra Trusso

      @car333 – sorry, but you are exactly the type of person who perpetuates the race card! Barack Obama isn’t a bad president because he’s black. He’s a bad president because it appears to me that he’s deliberately destroying America.

      • car333

        Sandra you should take a second or two and pull your head from your butt. Where did I say the first word anti black. People like you assume their way through life. BTW he isn’t black.

        • Sandra Trusso

          @car333 – then why did you refer to the White House as the “black” house? People aren’t completely stupid… you can pretend all you want that you didn’t infer anything anti-black, but that’s exactly what you did. I know it and so does anyone who read it…. furthermore, if you want to sound a little more credible, you need to stop personal attacks like “pull your head from your butt”. It is an ignorant statement.

          • car333

            It might be an ignorant statement but it fits you perfectly. I am Black.

          • Sandra Trusso

            Yeh, right!… I doubt that you are black, but whether you are or not makes no difference (unless you deliberately wanted to try to make people think that this racist statement was made by a white person). It was, and is, a racist statement (and you know it for whatever reason you posted this, you knew it was racist)… why does everything have to be prefaced with racial overtones? Why the comment about the “black” house? Why the comments about “Kenya”…. and obviously you don’t even know how to define ignorant, so you can’t possibly know whether it fits me or not.

          • valmc

            YOU are exactly what is wrong with our country. You are unable to use any type of logic or reasoning. A sheep. Be careful, the wolves are looking for you.

        So your going to follow a CHILD MOLESTOR, DRUG ADDICT AND A DRAFT DODGER?? Good move IDIOT.

        • billwhit1357

          It is true, Ted did dodge the draft. His Selective Service classification record shows ratings of 1-Y and 4-F for 1969 and 1972 respectively, indicating ineligibility for military service under established physical, mental, or moral standards, rather than student deferment. Also, your full of crap about Child Molesting. He did date a 17 year old at one time, not a child, so your just talking out your leftist anus!

          • LittleRoot_48

            The same people who trash Ted revere Slick Wilie who was a SERIAL RAPIST, DRAFT DODGER (for real) and inserted a cigar into the vagina of a WH intern. Me, I’ll keep Ted.

          • Bill

            17 isnt of age. That makes him a CHILD MOLESTOR. In 1978, Nugent began a relationship with seventeen-year-old Hawaii
            native Pele Massa. Due to the age difference they could not marry so
            Nugent
            joined Massa’s parents in signing documents to make himself her legal
            guardian, an arrangement that Spin magazine ranked in October 2000 as
            #63 on their list of the “100 Sleaziest Moments in Rock”. Are you doing a 17 year old?? I bet you are.

          • billwhit1357

            And? I bet you worship the ground that the Serial Rapist, Bill Clinton, walks on, don’t you? You and your Ilk are all the same, unpatriotic, never served your country, only complained, whined, and sucked from the government penis. You Demonrats are as close to being of the Islamic belief as a group can get, without actually being a Muslim. You hate all that is America, you hate Christians, you hate people who speak the Truth, and you hate everyone who does not have the same type of mentally deranged thinking that you do. Pathetic! But let another Leftist do the same thing and nothing is said, all is fine! Nothing but leeches that suck up every drop of vomit Obama spews!

          • Bill

            Damned PERVERTED little F wads. Why dont you go do a 17 year old and see how fast you get a case for CHILD MOLESTATION. You really want to know whats pathetic?? YOU are. You arent anything except a poor little butt hurt con that has NOTHING courtesy of that thing called bush. Funny thing you would mention Christians. Im sure your attitude is something styraight out of the Bible huh. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. I guess that means go ahead and put that micro pee pee in a minor huh. Maybe just maybe its your turn to get done. Have a nice day PRINCESS Booty Boy.

          • Rose

            Can’t there be an intelligent discussion about the issues Ted raised? Our lying president, Hillary saying, “What difference does it make,” etc.?

          • Bill

            Sure their can be but the only thing is his credibility. Take a look at it this way here yo uhave a guy that did everything in his power to get out of the draft. Molested a minor and this is the guy that the gop uses to talk about GUN CONTROL?? Give me a break. The guy is a washed up COWARDLY Rocker. As for Obama lying thats been DC politics for as long as I can remember on both sides. Bush lied aboiut Iraq. Clinton lied about getting a blow job. Nixon lied when he said he wasnt a crook. As for Hillary well the public opinion is that its a witch hunt and that has been all but verified by General Petraeus. BTW did you know that he is backing Clinton?

          • Rose

            First of all, Bush did not lie about Iraq. All the intelligence (from other countries as well as ours) pointed to weapons of mass destruction. We know that Iraq HAD wmd’s because Hussein used them on his own people. I’ve have never seen a president lie so much as the one we have now. He has absolutely no credibility as he continues to destroy our great nation.

          • Bill

            Oh so all of the other lame excuses for going to war was truthful?? Give me a break. He had a ton of noncredible reasons to invade and only then did he bring up WMD. BTW one lie is to damned many. As I said its the way of DC politics. On closing if he didnt lie maybe you can explain to me WHY bush has a Warrant out for his arrest and even our allie Canada wants him. God Forbid the party of law and order would follow their own rules.

If you want to be a groupie of Obama and his Criminal Administration, you sound perfect for it.

          • Bill

            I probably pay more in taxes than you make. As for Military is 6 years in the Navy good enough for you? After that I opened my Computer repair business. Since you are now trolling Im done with your lame a55. I refuse to feed trolls.

          • billwhit1357

            At least you had the balls to serve, thank you for your service. But, I kind of doubt you pay more, but whatever your little Leftist heart says.

          • billwhit1357

            See, LittleRoot, Bill takes up for Billy Boy, because Billy Boy is a Leftist, just like Sick Bill commenting. Lol, they are such Hypocrites, if one of them do the same, it’s fine, but if a Conservative dies the same, OH MY GOD! Democrats are about as close to Islam as any group can get without actually being an Islamic organization! Full of Sick, Criminally Minded Sewer Scum!

Palin, Cruz, Romney, etc., have all been denigrated by these media morons of the left. Nugent spoke freely and it came from conviction. Like it or not, he has the right.

      Too bad we can no longer give down-votes. I’d give you 5.

    As long as you call a spade a spade, there is never a need to apologize. Tell the truth and all others be damned.

      The “Truth” is the “Truth” no matter how you tell it.

    Wow!!!!! The only definition this “reporter” could come up with was racist one???? SHAME ON YOU, SHAME ON YOU!!!! Ted Nugent is right on!!! Why are you doing this to the truth???

    • Rsmile

      Because the “Truth” shows that they are liars and they don’t want the people to know the truth.

  • Sonia Filos Bennett

    Erin, you are an Idiot and a racist bigot unwilling to listen to another side. Ted is willing to listen to you why I dont know. Sorry but your way of interviewing is very upsetting. What you did on this interview is a “horrible way to do it”

    • Egon

      Hey Sonia, Erin is doing exactly what most camouflage-commies do : follow Saul Alinski’s “rules”…in this case : “picking the fly specks out of the pepper”…

  • Sonia Filos Bennett

    I am so upset with her trying to put words in his mouth (can you tell?) Where are you with Bill Mahr & his foul words???????????

    • Rsmile

      Libtards try very hard to put words in people’s mouths because they don’t want the truth to be known and they want to distort the truth anyway they can.

      Did you notice she didn’t agree with him either, funny though he’s never called to the carpet.

      Bill Maher is another subhuman mongrel who should deep throat a cactus plant.
