Scott Walker Professes Love For Ted Nugent, People Who Protect Their Turf With Guns

"oh my" - s. walker

Scott Walker, alleged man, has been having a great couple of weeks, to the delight of possibly Ted Nugent and we are not sure who else but they are out there somewhere. Walker attended the NRA camo/assassination party last week and now gracefully steps in it by declaring not only his love of Ted Nugent, but his pride for Wisconsin’s answer to Florida’s Stand Your Ground law, its Castle Doctrine, which allows every gun-toting king or queen of every castle to shoot and kill pretty much anyone who does something bad on his or her castle’s property, including tick him or her off.

Here is a video of our favorite Just For Men model talking about the things that make him happy right now.

So, bragging about the fact that the gun people thought he was some sort of movie star even before he got in a political position that he doesn’t even seem to want or care about but keeps being encouraged by a small number of computer-generated poll participants to carry out, Walker says the highlight of some other weird gun show he went to once was that Ted Nugent performed the National Anthem therein and he “got to see” it happen.

Now what does he say about Wisconsin’s Castle Doctrine? It sounds like, There is nothing I’ve been proud to sign, but unfortunately it is a whisky-fueled slurred attempt at the words, “There was nothing I was prouder to sign.” Fine. It’s very encouraging that you were slightly less proud to sign a bill striking an equal pay law from the books.

For me thinking not only about people protecting their home and their property, but being able to protect their family and their loved ones in their home and on their property.

Is not a sentence. Does “protect their family and their loved ones in their home” include “shoot someone dead in a fit of unmedicated or medicated rage and/or delusions of grandeur and heroism in or around the vicinity of their home due to boredom”? Whatever, yes.

Walker’s recall election is coming up real quick! June 5. He is currently doing disgustingly well, which means he is squatting uncomfortably at 50 percent, a mere handful of points above his competitors. [Huffington Post]

    If Ted Nugent thinks he's a patriot, and that guns are so cool, why didn't he go to Vietnam with the rest of us?

      Too busy chasing little (VERY little) girls, so I hear….
      Oh, and shitting his pants at the thought someone else might fire back….

      1. Jukesgrrl

        Yes, he perfected the Jerry Lee Lewis "marry your child cousin" crazy, upping the ante to "adopt the girl you covet when it would be illegal to fuck her because of her age." Apparently he (and the girl's parents!) thought incest was preferable to statutory rape. #63 on Spin magazine's Sleaziest Moments in Rock History. And that's some pretty sleazy company, including current prime-time TV star Steven Tyler who engaged in a similar stunt years later.

      However, the constitution he loves so much, he knows little about and doesn't really want to know. My advice to Ted, read the constitution and the federalist papers and then let's talk about the constitution.

    1. stanpan

      It's not fair, but, then again, who leaves a better legacy? Levon was loved and respected by fellow musicians and fans alike. Nugent will be remembered, if at all, as a chickenhawk has-been.

  2. GuyClinch

    What with the the KKKastle Doctrine, I'm having a hard time deciding if I'd rather Nugent got caught sneaking around on Walker's lawn, or Walker sneaking around on Nugent's lawn/dirtpile/bone-strewn wasteland/whatever.

      They had a couple terms with a democratic governor and decided that Scooter was a fresh face with a great can-do attitude. Then he took office and the shit hit the fan and has continued splattering ever since. The folk who knew him didn't care that he was a douche, and millions weren't paying attention to his antics in Milwaukee. Not enough intelligent people showed up to vote and now that the state workers and teachers (and schools) have been shafted, many of those who voted him in thinking that he was going to gore someone else's ox got theirs gored instead. In short, stupid won out with the help of money.

    *regards photo* — So what's keeping his hair from flying off his head in the breeze?
    It might rhyme with an earlier thread's alt-text…. but on this one, I'm going with "scum."

  4. coolhandnuke

    There is a direct link in ones' over compensation and fascination with phallic objects–guitars, guns, Corvettes, Koch brothers–and a wee wang.

  5. edgydrifter

    Walker's at 50%? I'd say "go fuck yourselves" to Wisconson's idiot electorate, but they're obviously way ahead of me.

    1. Rotundo_

      As one of the "other approximately 50%" you would be amazed at the depth of stupid and mean to be found here and in many places. The only good news is that demographics is slowly working its magic and more stupid white old men are dying than replacements are being made. Unfortunately there is a lot of damage being done in the meantime that can't be undone by non-stupid, non-white non-men when demographics finally win out.

    Walker can't be gone quick enough, I hope the WI electorate has the sense to boot out his sorry @$$ and allow us to never have to see or hear from him again.

    1. Rotundo_

      As doG is my witness, I will be there to cast my ballot for "any candidate but Scooter" up to and including voting for a wedge of cheese, or die in the attempt. I have photo ID, birf certificate and am willing to provide DNA samples to be able to vote against the son of a bitch again, hopefully for the final time. They need to strike the name from the records and refer to this asshole as "He who shall never be spoken of" in all documentation of his existence, including birth certificate, etc.

  7. Baconzgood

    I'm not watching this with the "guns, Nuge and the Scott Walker". I've puked in my mouth enough thank you very much Wonkette.

  8. SayItWithWookies

    Scott Walker's never met a problem he couldn't solve without adding a little more ignorance, instability and fear to society. Because that's what extortionists do.

  9. Chick-Fil-Atheistâ„¢

    You can't speak to people loudly enough for them to actually hear "that working to establish a greater sense of community is more important than arming yourself for a fucking standoff."

  10. Jukesgrrl

    Scott Walker wants to shoot first and ask questions later when someone sets a foot on his property, meanwhile he is free to tramp all over everyone else's rights.

  11. Thurman Munster IV

    The universe is fucked up. Levon Helm dies at 71 and Ted Nugent will live to be 98. I haz a sad

    1. Negropolis

      and Ted Nugent will live to be 98.

      Well, only if Romney is elected, because he already told us where he'll end up if our president is re-elected.

  12. bumfug

    Is anyone surprised that a needledick like Scott Walker is impressed by a loudmouth dipshit with a bunch of big guns?

  13. ThundercatHo

    Hey, Ted, Scott Walker called you a pussy. Hey, Scott, no, over here. I just saw The Nuge feeling up your wife. Blam! Blam! Blam! Blam! . . . . . . . and the world is a better place.

    1. Rotundo_

      Bride of Scooter is a real sight to behold. Should be posted on "People of WalMart.com". Of course given Scooter's asymmetrical good looks, she would be a catch for Scooter. His mom must have had a pelvic girdle one could barely pass a dime through. And Scooter wasn't a c-section delivery.

  14. Callyson

    So…the solution for Wisconsin women is to get a gun. That'll teach anyone who wants to underpay them. Thanks for the clarification, Scotty!

    As for the polls–not pleased, but this is not over…fight on, Wisconsin!

  15. Beowoof

    Ted is the mentality of the modern republican voter, and Scott is out looking for any vote he can find right now. As Scott is going to need every right wing moron in the country to show and vote in Wisconsin to allow him to remain a governor.

  16. WiscDad

    Anyone who wants to come to WI and vote in the recall is welcome to stay at my house. I make beer, and you will not need to show an ID to vote.

    1. Rotundo_

      Dude! We want to do this legally and properly, and savor the sight of Scooter going off to the Milwaukee burbs to sell insurance or some damn thing, cause he won't be electable anywhere or anytime with his image problems. We don't want to sink to Dubya and Diebold remedies. I want to honestly be a part of thowing the bastard out.

  17. Wonderthing

    These so called he-men who spout about guns god and glory are the usual crowd of half-assed little pisspots with paramecium brains and pinhead pee-pees. When you see 'em, sneer at 'em. They ain't worth a good spit on a hot rock.

  18. ElPinche

    Scott: "Who's this Ted Nugget? He said what?…Oh, he's an asshole! Well, he's ok in my book!"

    This train of thought is pretty common in the rightwing circle jerk.

  19. An_Outhouse

    Is Ted trying to pick up gay guys with that photo shoot?

    (No offense, and my apologies to gay guys).

    Ted Nugent said:
    “Obama, he’s a piece of sh-t, and I told him to suck on my machine gun … Hey Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless b—t … Any questions? Freeeeeeeeeeeedom!!!!!” — on stage in 2007. (from Entertainment Weakly, of all places.)

    I missed that show. I think I went to see Guns N' Roses that weekend.

  21. Negropolis

    Scott's about to find that his support among the nuts is broad as the Mississippi, but as shallow as Paris Hilton. Buh-bye, Scottie.

  22. ttommyunger

    First, Pat Robertson and Allen West, now it's Nugent and Walker, WTF? Is this "Duos That Make You Throw Up In Your Own Mouth", day?

  23. WonkCynic

    Sarah Palan is going to show us her tits and her pink glistening snatch when she stars in the remake video of Ted Nugent's song "Wang Dang Cougar Poon Tang".

  24. sezme

    True story: earlier this year, a guy I went to school with in Wisconsin, who was even a good friend in grade school, shot and killed his wife and two teenage children and finally himself at home, in Wisconsin.

    So yeah, Scott Walker, guns are real great for "Protecting the home". Shithead.
