Because all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to remain silent, I am compelled to comment on this.
Ted Nugent told a GOP dinner, a Lincoln Day Dinner or some such in Maricopa County, AZ:
“Here’s your job, Republican Party. Twenty to 25 of those guys [veterans] kill themselves every day, and they haven’t told you why and they haven’t told anybody else why but they told me why: because the commander-in-chief is the enemy.” (Story courtesy of Right Wing Watch).
I say (and it's actually someone else doing the saying, I just wish I'd thought of it first but I will appropriate it because it sums up this sorry incident perfectly):
Draft-dodging, self-shitting child rapist says what?
Fuck Ted Nugent.
I want all of you Republicans to remember this: He is on your team. He is one of you. For that, you should be ashamed. If you are not, I am ashamed for you.
And let us never forget. The name of the President who sent those service men and women off to suffer and die come back with the PSTD and other wounds which today compel them to choose suicide over life in such shocking numbers (and that he sent them off to war FOR NO REASON AT ALL) was not President Barack Obama. It was President George W. Bush, may he rot in Hell (with Ted Nugent at his side) for all eternity.
I will pray and ask that God gives me the strength to find it within me to pray for my enemies as Jesus told me I must. And for that German pilot, too. And for the murderers of the 150 college kids today in Kenya. But that strength is not in me tonight. Not even on Good Friday.
