The president, “big” women, and machine guns were a few of the topics that redneck philosopher and rock guitarist Ted Nugent touched on during Saturday night’s performance at Billy Bob’s Texas.
The Dallas Morning News reported these quotable gems from Nugent’s stage banter:
“I vow that I will use our freedom to get these dirty (expletives) out of the White House. The president is a bad man. The vice president is a bad man. They’re all bad people. If you don’t get that, you’re a dead (expletive). If you don’t get that, get out of Texas. Move to Illinois.”
“All the skinny girls get a free machine gun tonight,” he said, holding up a machine gun on stage. “The big girls can load them.”
“This is an illegal Gibson guitar, the game warden told me it was illegal. They’re soulless (expletives). Those spineless, soulless pieces of (expletive) from the Wildlife Agency should take me down now, because all of my Gibsons are made of dangerous species. This one is made of platypus! My audience will beat them within an inch of their lives. Is that illegal? (Expletive), it’s just entertainment!”
“It’s time to celebrate the taking back of America in 2012.”
You won’t find anything in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram about Nugent’s show. Tarrant County’s daily newspaper chose instead to cover the Jennifer Lopez and Enrique Iglesias concert…in Dallas.
