Exactly!!! [No offense, Hart.]

But Scammity and Bozo drag this nearly anonymous blogger out and try to compare his influence with that of mAnn Coulter.

If it weren’t so sad, it would ALMOST be amusing.

With all my love,
Aunty Em

See? Just when you had forgotten where Kansas even is, Aunty Em is there with some plainspoken Midwestern wisdom. (Toto? I think we’re back in Kansas!)

Here is the segment transcript of Thursday night’s Faux Nooz™ show, Hannity & Colmes, that relates to this blog.

And here is the transcript of the segment that contains this exchange:

COLMES: … you said, for your own purpose (ph), it makes you feel important that some guy wants to assassinate you. He doesn’t want to assassinate you. You don’t really believe that, do you?

NUGENT: Yes, I do. My family takes it very seriously. They’re very concerned about it. And I think just the use of the word assassination. And the hate speech that this guy spews is of great concern.

Ted Nugent Targeted for Assassination?

Friday, July 13, 2007

This is a partial transcript from “Hannity & Colmes,” July 12, 2007, that has been edited for clarity.

ALAN COLMES, CO-HOST: Conservatives are outraged tonight, outraged, I tell you, by the writing of one liberal blogger who appears to be or claims he’s endorsing the assassination of both Rush Limbaugh and conservative rocker Ted Nugent.

Hart Williams, a former writer for Larry Flynt’s Hustler magazine, wrote the following controversial comments on the liberal Web site the Democratic Daily. He said:

“I’ve got dibs on Rush, as soon as it’s legal and lawful to shoot him. Whoever wants Ted Nugent is welcome to him.”

7-12-07 Hannity & Colmes

Joining us now to response, the artist behind the new CD, “Love Grenade,” rock legend Ted Nugent.

Let me just — first of all, before that he wrote, “When they manage to inevitably push their litany of hate speak and actual bloodletting and full-blown civil war, there is no other place that the hatred of American against American will go.” Then, he said, “I’ve got dibs on Rush when it’s legal and lawful. And Ted Nugent is up for grabs. You’re welcome to him.”

Are you really offended by that?

TED NUGENT, MUSICIAN: Well, Alan, I’ve been dealing with these new jobs all my life, since the 1960s. The animal rights and the anti- hunters have been threatening to kill my family and kill me.

COLMES: We don’t want him to kill you here, Ted.

NUGENT: They’ve threatened to kill me. We got the files with law enforcement. This guy is obviously a nut case. But he is actually making a statement to assassinate fellow Americans.

COLMES: No, he’s not, Ted.

NUGENT: If you really want to fight — if you really want to fight hate, Alan, you’ll find these lunatic fringers are all about hate. And all I can say to him is good luck.

COLMES: Actually, Ted, he’s not threatening to assassinate you. He’s talking about the hate on the right.

NUGENT: So let me get — Alan, what you’re talking about…

COLMES: You’re ignoring how he set it up, and you’re ignoring the hyperbole.

NUGENT: … make the statement. He used the word assassinate, didn’t he?

[NOTE: No. He didn’t. The word is not present in either article. The first use of “assassinate” or “assassination” came from Faux Nooz in their July 10 Hannity & Colmes show with Brent Bozell. — HW]

COLMES: Well, you’re taking it totally out of context. He — you can’t believe he plans to assassinate you. He said…

NUGENT: Alan, you are such a pushover.

COLMES: No, no, no, no.

NUGENT: You just — you got this denial thing.


COLMES: … you said, for your own purpose (ph), it makes you feel important that some guy wants to assassinate you. He doesn’t want to assassinate you. You don’t really believe that, do you?

NUGENT: Yes, I do. My family takes it very seriously. They’re very concerned about it. And I think just the use of the word assassination. And the hate speech that this guy spews is of great concern.

COLMES: Well, he didn’t say the word assassinate, by the way. That was not the words that he used. And he said that when they’ve managed to push hatred so far that there’s bloodletting in this country.

NUGENT: You can try to rationalize it all you want, Alan. We have our guard up. And we’re prepared for these kind of kooks, because we’ve been dealing with them for a while. Because I’m so happy it really pisses the idiots off.

COLMES: And by the way, you — in your Wall Street Journal speech, about which he speaks, you say “other than the civil-rights movement, the decade of the ’60s, which is what spurred on this — this piece by this blogger. You know, you talk about the civil rights movement being the only thing that came out of the ’60s.

And you know, you’re forgetting about the Great Society. Medicare, Medicaid. The movement to end the Vietnam War. Helping the poor. All of that came out of the ’60s. Conveniently ignored.

NUGENT: I didn’t forget that stuff. I didn’t forget that stuff. A bigger bureaucracy — a bigger and more wasteful bureaucracy, you put that in the asset column of America, Alan.

COLMES: Yes. Absolutely.

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: Ted, good to see you, my friend. Welcome back.

NUGENT: Greetings, Sean. Happy summertime ’07.

Hannity & Nugent

HANNITY: Happy summertime ’07.

Let’s go back to the words here so we can — we can help Alan out. “I’ve got dibs on Rush, as soon as it’s legal and lawful to shoot him. Whoever wants Ted Nugent is welcome to him.”

Now, that’s a threat. That’s a threat against you and your family. And it’s pretty — it’s a pretty sick mindset.

But Ted, I’ve got to tell you something. I’ve been through this. Every outspoken conservative I know gets the same type of hate speech and the same type of threats on a fairly regular basis. I’m sure this is — you know, happen to you a number of times.

NUGENT: I wrote a piece for the Waco Tribune recently that was run around a little bit on the web sites. And I was identified as a — as a conservative.

I don’t want to force anybody to have a gun. But they want to force me to disarm. I don’t want to force anybody to go hunting, but they want to ban my hunting. I don’t want to force anybody to eat meat, but they want to ban meat.

These are lunatic fringers, Sean, that really are dangerous. And I had to actually apprehend and take into custody an animal rights person in San Francisco a few years ago who threatened to kill my family to my face.

Now, that was not a veiled threat. I knew the context. I saw the hate in his eyes. I literally had to put him in the hands of the San Francisco Police Department. That threat was real. And we take it seriously.

HANNITY: I take it seriously, too. And I’ve had people that, you know, based on specific threats, that have been arrested because of what they have said and the specific threats that they have made over the years.

NUGENT: They’re loony.

HANNITY: The only thing — the only thing in your case, you’re the last person they should threaten. You’re too good a shot. And you could do more with a bow and arrow, probably.

But you’ve got your family to worry about. I mean, that’s where this gets — why can’t they just disagree with us and fight in the arena of ideas?

NUGENT: The arena of ideas, I like that. That’s where we like to have our dialogue.

You know, I’m an American. I love all Americans. And I would help any American pursue their dreams and their pursuit of happiness.

But you find that the left, there’s a lunatic fringe on the left that literally are trying to force us to comply to their outline of life. And I find it just reprehensible that they would recommend violence, not to mention murder and shooting people and assassinating people. This is bizarre.

HANNITY: All right, last question. Should they all be arrested? And do you take it seriously enough that you will press charges in every case?

NUGENT: Yes to both points. I think they should be arrested when someone references the word “shoot” Rush Limbaugh and someone else…

COLMES: When Ann Coulter says about Lincoln Chafee versus Abe Lincoln, they shot the wrong Lincoln, should she be arrested?

NUGENT: … in reference to a particular person. Talk about taking it out of context, Alan. You’re the one taking it out of context.

Watch “Hannity & Colmes” weeknights at 9 p.m. ET!

That’s it. I report. You decide.

    Gee Hart, I was hoping to see a post on last night’s Hardball. 🙁

    Still think they should read some of the quotes from Campus Progress. I consider him worse than Coulter in actual comments since he seems really just committed to the ideas because he wants to believe them. His identification with the neocons is not in ideology as much as actions. Ted however, is more willing to say outright that he likes to intimidate women and children, kill anything that moves and particulary poeple he doesn’t like because they are foreigners.

    Well the day shift is coming in so I should close up and get ready to boogie out of here. Another fun night at Denver General, the place to go if you get shot, run over or into, in Metro Denver or outlying areas. (including western Kansas). goodnight and good luck.

  2. Ted is a bigger idiot than Hannity! I didn’t think it was possible. They keep throwing out the word “Assassination” like it was actually said! If they would push the hate to the point of bloodshed, Ass-nugget would run and hide from the combat just like he did before. He would once again, be running around with his pants full. His coward streak is documented. So let it be known that I find Ted to be an ass of the highest order! Draft dodging coward that he is! You make this Marine want to puke.

  3. Amazing. More misrepresentation of what you said. I’m not so sure that Colmes is helping after all. I know, it’s tough, he’s a liberla on Faux, but goodness gracious, in my opinion he was spoonfeeding Nugent.

  4. J. Rhodes says:

    Has-been rocker Ted Nugent should be concerned about his sinking music career. When was your last hit, Ted?

    I’m also curious why Moral Oral Sean didn’t invite Teddy to perform at this summer’s scamfest Freedom Concert. Maybe Teddy wasn’t good enough for the concert.

    “Lil’ Ole” Sean Hannity is a wingnut, plain and simple. His career is based on lies.

    If I bet a nickel to every lie he tells, I would be a multimillionaire.

  5. battlebob says:

    The article does not answer the title post.
    The only time I watch Faux News is when they are interviewing someone I am interested in such as the times Kerry has been on. Otherwise it is watching an episode of Dem Beating where anything the Dem says is twisted into some kind of mush.
    For better or for worse, the dialog is out there. I don’t think it helped liberalism any. But we need to deal with it and move on an hopefully not do it again.
    I teach Lean principles and we have to start to think if it doesn’t help us then why do it?

  6. Maybe Ted and Hannity would be willing to step into a cage with someone. You know, someone that can slap the snot out of the two war mongers. Get it sanctioned, and watch the cowards run around like the yellow bastards that they are. No cages with little creatures to be let out in a bloodlust set environment. Hey Ted, how does that sound? Back up your words in a ring. See if you can make that “liberal” cry! Hand to hand combat with one of those sissy assed tree huggers. One guess as to your huckleberry is! After I get through with you, I would be happy to slap the shit out of Hannity in the same ring/cage.

    The post answers the title and makes the point that Hart is being targeted by the right. Not the other way around.

    What’s done is done. I am in full support of Hart on this issue and will ask politely that others here either be supportive or ignore the topic. Thank you.

  8. battlebob says:

    Sorry but no one is immune to critisism. Progressives are gong to be targeted by the Right anyway. Le’s not make it easy for them.

  9. Battlebob

    Yes, let’s not make it easy for them by bickering over who is right or wrong. 🙂

    This is one of those times where I must insist that it is neccessary to agree to disagree and move off the topic. Thank you for your understanding. Feel free to email me if you have any further concerns.
