Fox News Sticks With Laura Ingraham
In the least surprising news ever, Fox News is deciding to stick with Laura Ingraham after she publicly mocked 17 year old survivor of the Florida high school mass shooting in Parkland, David Hogg. Why? Because Ingraham and "free speech" are apparently the victim in all of this. ...read more
Ted Nugent, Sarah Palin & Kid Rock With Trump Is An Armageddon of Dumb
As we speak, Donald Trump is once again the laughingstock of the world after lying about sending the USS Vinson to North Korea and causing a global panic about World War III to break out. He's also doing a pretty sweet job at repeating Chinese propaganda, which I'm sure has ...read more
Underage Girl-Enthusiast Ted Nugent Tells NRA Crowd to Shoot Child Molesters
If you've stopped paying attention to things that are said by NRA lunatics because they just run together like a batshit smoothie, I sympathize, and the only reason I bring up Ted Nugent at all is for the exceptional lack of self-awareness he showed Sunday when he told the ...read more

Best of Banter: Sarah Palin Got Crazier, 'Friends' Was Racist, and Ted Nugent Is Still An Asshole
From Mike Huckabee's fever dreams of a secular America to the Lovecraftian gibberish spewing forth from the Iowa Freedom Summit, the final week of January confirmed that American politics in 2015 will be just as twisted and deluded as they were in 2014. In fact, they might even ...read more
Ted Nugent Still Thinks Obama is a "Subhuman Mongrel"
It was almost exactly one year ago that aging rock star and NRA board member Ted Nugent called President Obama a "subhuman mongrel" while attending the annual SHOT gun show. A year later, he not only stands by the insult, but said in an interview that it was "too delicate." ...read more
Ted Nugent's Illiterate Death Threat Against President Obama
Ted Nugent evidently is on Facebook, where he enjoys posting cat videos and click-bait questionnaires determining which historical bigot you are ("I got Nathan Bedford Forrest!"). Actually, I have no idea whether he posts those things, but it's funny to imagine him squatting in ...read more
Ted Nugent Compares Eric Cantor, the GOP's Only Jewish Congressman, to Nazi Propagandist
Either Ted Nugent is the least self-aware human on the planet or he's just the world's biggest asshole. In his latest column (he has a column) for World Net Daily, here's what he wrote about the GOP's only Jewish member of Congress, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor: Virgina ...read more
Ted Nugent: 'I am a Black Guitar Player from Detroit'
Well, at least he was right about the "from Detroit" part of that sentence. In a bizarre interview with CNN's Erin Burnett last night, Nugent declared himself to be a "black guitar player from Detroit," while again suggesting that he doesn't "have a racist bone" in his body. ...read more
Why We Shouldn't Ignore Ted Nugent or His Fellow Crackpots
(Photo: Nugent with Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) at the 2013 State of the Union.) Whenever extremists blurt out extreme things online or elsewhere, there's always a concurrent sub-debate about whether we should pay attention to these people. The most recent case, of course, is ...read more
Who Gives a F*ck What Ted Nugent Thinks?
When I was seven years old, Ted Nugent released Cat Scratch Fever. I loved it and would often run around the house singing it. Why? Because I was seven years old and that's the kind of simpleton crap you find completely enthralling at seven years old. I was much too young to ...read more
Ted Nugent: Obama is a 'Subhuman Mongrel' and a 'Chimpanzee'
It's fascinatingly serendipitous whenever I write something like my column today and then, minutes later, someone like Ted Nugent comes along and illustrates exactly what I was talking about. My column today was all about how, yes, the president was absolutely correct when he ...read more
Ted Nugent: Disenfranchise the Elderly, Disabled, Students and Working Class Americans
Whenever Ted Nugent says he has great idea for something, it's usually a solid bet that it's something horrendous -- like a safari to hunt endangered animals or when he said George Zimmerman was attacked by "an enraged black man-child." This time around, Nugent, writing for the ...read more
Ted Nugent and Rand Paul Declare: We're Anti-Racism, Pro-Civil Rights Heroes!
When I think of obnoxiously radical pro-gun trolls who delight in killing rare and spectacular animals for fun while routinely popping off with NRA slogans thinner than the bumpers stickers on which they're printed, the first name that comes to mind is aging rocker and Vietnam ...read more
Mail Bag Time!! Chez Gets Drunk, We Talk About Ed Snowden, the 4th of July and Ted Nugent For President!
In this week's festive edition of The Daily Banter Mail Bag, Ben, Bob, Chez and Jessica discuss which country we think Edward Snowden will end up in, the prospect of a Ted Nugent Presidency, and what we're doing (did) for the 4th of July! The questions: 1. It looks like poor ...read more
Ted Nugent's State of the Union
Every time we travel by airplane, we have to endure a humiliating sequence of security measures. You know the routine. We've ostensibly done nothing wrong, and yet we have to take off our shoes, we have to take off our belts, our personal items have to be X-rayed or searched by ...read more
Cowardly Ted Nugent Threatened the President Again
Last week, I wrote an article about the SHOT Show in Las Vegas and how NBC Sports was pathetically tone-deaf by sponsoring the event. As I mentioned, the NRA had not one but three different booths, and Bushmaster, the manufacturer of the assault rifle used by the Sandy Hook ...read more
Another Reason Why Ted Nugent is Psychotic
I really do try to avoid writing about the far-right wing of the far-right wing of the Republican Party. First, there are simply too many names and too many ignorant maniacs saying way too many ignorantly maniacal things that it's nearly impossible to keep up. And many of them ...read more
