Right-Wing Media Indignant Over President Obama's Funny Or Die Interview

….so if these assholes ever say something mockingly about a political opponent, you object and they tell you that it’s a joke then ask rhetorically why you can’t you take a joke, point to this article then tell them to fuck off.

Tell Michigan Tourism Agency: Break Ties with Outdoor Channel and Ted Nugent

The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the official marketing and tourism agency for the state, has teamed up with the Outdoor Channel to launch a “Pure Michigan” campaign. This partnership comes closely on the heels of Outdoor Channel inking a multi-year endorsement deal with aged rocker Ted Nugent.

A National Rifle Association board member, Nugent has a long history of extremism and opposition to common-sense gun laws. Lately, however, he has been making national headlines with a series of racist statements. In July 2013, Nugent said “The Black Problem” in America could be solved if African-Americans put their “heart and soul into being honest” and “law-abiding.” On January 17, 2014, he called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and “chimpanzee.”

Despite these comments,  Outdoor Channel President and CEO Jim Liberatore has heaped praise on Nugent, stating that he “symbolizes everything that is right in our industry and represents our viewers as an outspoken patriot.” “We are proud that he can be found exclusively on Outdoor Channel,” declared Liberatore.

Michigan is a state with a proud civil rights history. Detroit was the site of the 1963 Freedom Walk led by Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The state was also the birthplace of Motown Records and home to civil rights icons like Sojourner Truth and Laura Smith Haviland. Today, 14% of Michigan’s current population is African-American. It is difficult to see how the state’s recent embrace of the Outdoor Channel and its extremist spokesman is “Pure Michigan” in any sense.

Tell the Michigan Economic Development Corporation: Terminate your agreement with the Outdoor Channel and Ted Nugent.

This man is currently in the U.S. House of Representatives. And this is his official campaign account for the U.S. Senate.
I just can’t…


Stop feigning that indignation cripples you from identifying right-wing extremists for what they are. We all know that these people thrive on being petulant and reducing political opponents to abstractions. They lack a combination of character and capacity to debate the issues.
It should be noted it’s hard to qualify how the sophistry of Stockman’s opponent is any better:

Typical for a troll like D’Souza. It’s the kind of thing you say when you’re about to fall in to an abyss of irrelevance from a perch of right-wing punditry.
Point to this the next time you hear some debt histronics.

I knew boys like him in college - spoiled little rich boys who craved the attention they couldn’t get, so they became obnoxious RWNJs who intruded into every organization that was trying to make the world a better place. He is a troll, just like the ones that show up here, he just has more money and protection from consequences. Some day it will catch up to him.
