Michael Moore is documentary film-maker, author and speaker of the liberal kind. Exposing the evils of corporate America, right-wing governments, greedy health-care and guns. Michael Moore is vastly overweight and some would say obese and probably self-loathing.
Ted Nugent was a loin-clothed guitar playing wild man from the 1970’s. One reporter claims he never saw more girls in one bed than Teds. Ted still tours but evolved into a right-wing gun nut and a hunting enthusiast who kills and grills all his own meat from his Michigan lands. Ted is in love with himself.
He stands 6′ 3″ with a lean, muscular body and both men are from Michigan.
Why does it seem America has perfected such perfectly chiseled archetypes? Besides genetics what outside forces go into the synthesis of these two? What goes into the American mind that compels people to take such sharp stands and extremes on issues and a “what side of the fence are you on” mentality?
In this particular case, are both of their drastically different attitudes, world-views and tastes a direct result of their physical make-up? Moore is a staunch human rights activist, while Nugent kills and (formerly) fornicated with everything that looked good. If liberals think Ted’s indulgence is selfish how come Moore has a physique that could be compared to the animal we call “hog?”
Nugent appears to love war stating “America should dance on the skulls of their enemies.” However Nugent didn’t go to Vietnam. There are the draft dodging stories of him defecating in his pants and destroying his health before the anointed hour. There was also college enrollment and 300 date tours for his rock band. I have seen a peace sign on his guitar from those times. Is it possible Ted was a “liberal coward?”
Was Ted a product of that era and then through time and choice became it’s antithesis? Ted abhors drugs/alcohol and is it possible through extreme sobriety he decided drooling drugged out hippie robots was the last thing he wanted to share a world view with? Either way Ted had better things to do than go to Nam.
Ted with his sober, gun-toting, right-wing ways has a set of scripted rules one may expect. He’d like the raped to be able to execute her rapist and he’d have child molesters executed. Ted’s first wife was 17 when they dated and he claimed her parents didn’t mind.
“Better Ted Nugent than some drug and alcohol infested punk with a nipple ring.”
Moore…well what is there to say about Moore? His background doesn’t appear that interesting. Father worked for the city of Flint which was always laying people off and mother of various secretary jobs. Hence perhaps Michael listened to a lot of complaining in his house and turned it into a profession of huge acclaim. He’s written numerous books and films, has a legion of fans around the globe as well as those who can’t stand him.
Moore the professional dissident commands huge sums of money for speaking in auditoriums across the planet. And shouldn’t he be able to? If Ted can kill and eat Bambi shouldn’t Moore be able to complain about his perceived ills of America?
So tell me how does Ted look when he shoots a dear with an arrow and then cooks it? How does Moore look when he gathers with other liberal pods from Canada and tells them “don’t be like us.”
If Ted can tell Obama to suck on his machine gun and Hillary to ride it can’t Moore go to Europe and give a speech appealing to all the America haters for big bucks?
Both claim to abhor racism but which one would qualify as a racist? Would Ted say the N-word if it fit? And Michael? Which one will express themselves more naturally on the subject and which one will sound more scripted and careful?
Allegedly Ted hunts and dances with natives in Africa and claims to be “one of them” and Mike?
Michael whines and snivels on behalf of blacks but if you listen to Teds guitar which ones soul is more black? Which one lives the native lifestyle and which one would survive should the “white man capitalist society” fall?
Which one is the native and which one is the capitalist pig?
Which one do you trust more with a firearm?
Which one is healthier?
Which one is happier?
If only given two choices, which one would you rather be?
