Texas Democrats Call on Attorney General Greg Abbott to Cancel Appearance with Ted Nugent
Austin, TX -- This Tuesday, Attorney General Greg Abbott is set to have joint appearances with right-wing radical Ted Nugent. According to the Texas Eagle Forum, the Attorney General will join Nugent for events in Denton and Wichita Falls.
According to the Dallas Morning News, “Just last month, [Nugent] told Guns.com at the Las Vegas hunting and outdoor trade show that, ‘I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America.’” [Dallas Morning News, 2/13/2014]
Texas Democratic Party Chairman Gilberto Hinojosa released the following statement:
“Just last month, Ted Nugent called President Barack Obama a ‘subhuman mongrel’ and ‘gangster.’ He spews hate against our first African-American President and in return, Attorney General Greg Abbott welcomes him to the campaign trail. Is this how Abbott celebrates Black History Month? Texans deserve better than a statewide office holder and candidate running for governor who welcomes Ted Nugent and his repugnant comments. I can’t help but recall the old saying, tell me who your friends are, and I'll tell you who you are.”
Yeah. Trump is putting Rick Perry on the nukes.
This is serious, and it is now in the hands of a man best known for pay-to-play politics, gaffes, and shallow intellect. So, yes America. Donald Trump is putting Rick Perry in charge of the nukes. And we all know he ain’t no nuclear physicist.
