So, in your mind, no one is allowed to praise the military unless they have served as well?
Is it more patriotic to die for a cause you don't believe in just because the government forces you to join and fight?
No, that's not it. Its great when people are patriotic; its also great if people disagree with the government for sensible reasons. But in the case of Nugent, he frequently calls on communists and socialists to be killed, so Vietnam would have been right up his ideological alley. Then he takes it to another level like he made some personal sacrifice somehow, for example frequently wearing bdu's and bringing up the service of his family members in WWII as if that somehow reflected on him. He has never done jack-poop for this country. Period.
In my mind people who are quick and loud to say, "kill them all!" etc., and have no idea of what war, killing, etc. are, and are unwilling to risk their lives to do said killing, are jackasses (this includes politicians too). He's a coward, who like so many of his kind, hides behind a big mouth. In anything real he'd be crying. I'd bet this guy wouldn't even get his skinny ass into a fist fight without running away. He was a musician and nothing else, ever.
Anyhow, here are some quotes (which you apparently just don't want to see since you are just ignoring them in previous posts):
"My being there (South Africa) isn’t going to affect any political structure. Besides, apartheid isn’t that cut-and-dry. All men are not created equal."
"…Yeah they love me (in Japan) — they’re still assholes. These people they don’t know what life is. I don’t have a following, they need me; they don’t like me they need me… Foreigners are a******s; foreigners are scum; I don’t like ‘em; I don’t want ‘em in this country; I don’t want ‘em selling me doughnuts; I don’t want ‘em pumping my gas; I don’t want ‘em downwind of my life-OK? So anyhow, and I’m dead serious…" 1990, Detroit Free Press Interview.
" [black rappers] are greasy mongrels" MTV interview 1993.
Straight from his own mouth:
Honestly, just look at any interview of him. He can't criticize people he doesn't agree with without making them into non-hygenic sub-human animals that deserve to be slaughtered.
Also, patronizing people as if you are on some psychoanalytical high ground, while being incorrect at the same time, is unbecoming. Expressing my opinion and saying I'm sad that Trump invited this fool to the White House is in no way an inability to deal with things I disagree with. I disagree with him for specific reasons based on things he says and has said (none of that is emotional). If you can't put this together, maybe some reflection on your own personal ability to reason and engage in an "adult" discussion is in hand?
The real problem here is your and Punaperson's inability to get past a reactionary, "If you don't agree with us 100%, then you are totally against us." Its impossible to have a discussion with people like that, so I guess I'm out. Peace.
