Ted Nugent
Quote
Nugent is a vocal supporter of the U.S. Republican Party and various associated conservative causes, particularly gun rights and hunter's rights.[74] He is a supporter of former President Donald Trump, and has made a number of statements critical of President Barack Obama, one of which was perceived as potentially threatening and led to Nugent being investigated by the Secret Service.[13] His views have been considered racist.

In an interview in 1990, a few months after the release of Nelson Mandela during the negotiations to end apartheid in South Africa, Nugent stated: "apartheid isn't that cut-and-dry. All men are not created equal." He described black South Africans as "a different breed of man" who "still put bones in their noses, they still walk around naked, they wipe their butts with their hands".[79][80]

As a reward for entertaining U.S. troops in Iraq in 2004, Nugent visited Saddam Hussein's war room. He commented on Iraq, "Our failure has been not to Nagasaki them."[81]

On July 17, 2008, during the presidential election season and shortly before the Republican presidential nominating convention, Nugent expressed his skepticism about presumptive GOP Presidential nominee John McCain, stating that McCain was "catering to a growing segment of soulless Americans who care less what they can do for their country, but whine louder and louder about what their country must do for them. That is both un-American and pathetic."[82]

At a 2009 West Virginia rally sponsored in part by Massey Energy, Nugent "defended mountaintop removal mining," according to reporters on the scene. "On behalf of the Nugent family, I say, start up the bulldozers and get me some more coal, Massey," Nugent was recorded as saying.[83] Nugent is an outspoken critic of Islam, which he describes as a "voodoo religion" which "believes in world domination".[84]

During an interview with Piers Morgan, Nugent denied that he considered himself homophobic, saying "I'm repulsed at the concept of man-on-man sex, I think it's against nature. I think it's strange as hell, but if that's what you are, I love you. I'm not going to judge another's morals. I say live and let live. I have friends that are gay."[85][86]

Nugent clashed in 2014 with Jay Dean, then the mayor of Longview, Texas, and an incoming Republican member of the Texas House of Representatives after Dean moved to cancel Nugent's scheduled appearance at the Longview Independence Day concert. Dean said that he finds Nugent's music unsuitable for family-oriented audiences on July 4. Longview hence paid Nugent $16,000, half of the amount he had been promised, to drop him from the concert. Nugent in turn called Dean "racist" and "clueless, dishonest, and one of the bad guys."[87]

In 2014, Nugent worked as the treasurer and co-chairman for Sid Miller's campaign for Texas Agriculture Commissioner.[88]

Nugent's conservative views have prompted criticism from fellow musicians such as Paul McCartney,[89] David Crosby,[89] and the band Goldfinger, who have a song titled "**** Ted Nugent" on their album Open Your Eyes.[90]
Quote
Animal rights

Nugent, an opponent of animal rights, said in a long interview, "I'm stymied to come up with anything funnier than people who think animals have rights. Just stick an arrow through their lungs."
[98] In 2000, Bhaskar Sinha was jailed briefly following an incident outside a department store in San Francisco in which he threatened and physically assaulted Nugent, who in turn took Sinha into custody until San Francisco Police arrived and arrested the protester. However, protesters claim that Nugent started the altercation by spitting in the face of one of the protesters when offered an anti-fur flyer. A San Francisco police officer, who stated that he was on the scene, said that he didn't believe Nugent spat on anyone.[99]

Nugent has reportedly received death threats against him and his family from animal rights activists. On the Penn & Teller's Bullshit! episode about People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), Nugent said, "We've got reports and files with law enforcement across America where the animal rights extremists are on record threatening to kill my children on the way to school because we eat pheasant."[100]

In a 1992 radio interview, Nugent referred to Heidi Prescott of the Fund for Animals as a "worthless ****" and a "shallow ****", asking "who needs to club a seal, when you can club Heidi?" He was ordered by a court to pay Prescott $75,000.[101]

Nugent defended Kid Rock, a fellow musician and hunter, when he killed a mountain lion in January 2015, calling the people who targeted Rock "braindead squawkers" and that Rock did good by keeping predator numbers low and helping the deer population, which is vital for hunting.
[102] In July 2015, Nugent was one of the few to defend the killing of Cecil the lion.[103]

Nugent owns a 340-acre hunting ranch near Jackson, Michigan, called Sunrize Acres.[104] Anti-hunters claim this fenced facility offers "canned" hunts. Nugent has said, "I understand the criticism from those who say canned hunting violates the ethic of fair chase", though he still operates the facility, and refers to it as "high fence hunting".[105]

In April 2012, Nugent pled guilty to illegally killing and transporting an American black bear in Alaska.[106] His sentence included two years of probation, a prohibition on hunting and fishing in Alaska and on any U.S. Forest Service lands for one year, and a fine of $10,000, and he was required to produce and broadcast at his own expense a 30-60 second Public Service Announcement (PSA) on the responsibilities of hunters.[107][108] The judge in the case, Michael A. Thompson (Alaska), admitted in court that he himself had never heard of the law in which Nugent was charged, despite the fact that Thompson himself had been a lifelong bear hunter in Alaska.[109] Nugent explained his side of the situation in an interview with Deer & Deer Hunting.[110]

Nugent is a barbarian and has the phenotype to match:

On a lighter note:

https://us.yahoo.com/news/trump-resigns-screen-actors-guild-180704982.html

Quote
Donald Trump said he will resign from the Screen Actors Guild - American Federation of Television and Radio Artists after the group threatened to revoke his membership.

The former president said "who cares" to the group's threat, and followed SAG-AFTRA's board voting "overwhelmingly" that Mr Trump violated the union's guidelines by inciting the Capitol insurrection.

Fox News received Mr Trump's letter, which was addressed to the president of SAG-AFTRA.

"I write to you today regarding the so-called Disciplinary Committee hearing aimed at revoking my union membership. Who cares!" Mr Trump wrote in the letter. "While I’m not familiar with your work, I’m very proud of my work on movies such as Home Alone 2, Zoolander and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps; and television shows including The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Saturday Night Lives, and of course, one of the most successful shows in television history, The Apprentice—to name just a few!"

https://www.yahoo.com/news/sag-issues-hilarious-response-trump-210000798.html

Quote
SAG-AFTRA issued a memorable one-liner Thursday when Donald Trump resigned from the Hollywood actors union ahead of a disciplinary hearing.

“Thank you,” it said in a startlingly short, two-word statement.

The caustic comeback followed after Trump sent a petulant letter Thursday “revoking” his union membership.

CANCEL TOM BRADY!

https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/columnist/nancy-armour/2021/02/02/super-bowl-2021-tom-brady-doesnt-deserve-pass-trump-support/4358829001/

Quote
Tom Brady was happy to talk politics until he wasn’t.

The Make America Great Again hat in his locker, the flippant endorsement of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump. Only when those ties became inconvenient did Brady decide he wanted to “stick to sports,” and that he preferred to be a beacon of positivity rather than delve into society’s thorny ills.

How mighty white of him.

Brady’s ability to enter and exit the debate at his choosing, to shield himself from accountability, is the height of white privilege. As this country grapples with the far reaches of systemic racism, look no further than Brady, for whom the expectations, and allowances granted, will always be different.

“Whiteness is the benefit of the doubt,” said David Leonard, author of "Playing While White: Privilege and Power on and off the Field." “When Tom Brady says, 'I was just given the hat,’ or 'He’s just a friend of mine,’ or when he skips the White House and says, 'I had a different engagement,’ he gets the benefit of the doubt. He gets to be an individual.
...
Brady has had the chance – several, in fact – to clarify or walk back his comments and has chosen not to. At the Super Bowl in 2017, three days after Trump’s Muslim ban took effect. On Howard Stern's show last spring, when Trump was already beginning to sow lies about the election.

And yet again this week, less than a month after a deadly insurrection at the U.S. Capitol that was incited by Trump.

Instead, Brady has been allowed to divorce himself from it while Black athletes are made to own their views in perpetuity.

There is no end in sight to Colin Kaepernick’s blackballing, even though his protests to bring attention to police brutality of Black and brown people have proven to be an alarm we should not have ignored. WNBA players had one of their own owners turn on them because they had the audacity to say “Black Lives Matter” and amplify the stories of Black and brown women killed by police.

“I’m not sure how to respond to hypothetical questions like that,” Brady said Monday when asked if he feels he’s gotten a pass. “I hope everyone can – we’re in this position, like I am, to try to be the best I can be everyday as an athlete, as a player, as a person in my community for my team and so forth.

“So … yeah. Not sure what else.”

Even Brady’s aversion to talking about politics or current events is itself a form of privilege.
...
“The follow-up question of, 'I’m here just to play football,' is 'Well, who’s afforded that luxury? Who’s allowed to see sports as this apolitical space of distraction, of pleasure, of fun?’ ” Leonard said. “Seeing sports and living sports as an uncontested space is the privilege of whiteness. It’s the privilege of being a man. It’s the privilege of being a heterosexual athlete.

"That is a luxury that Black athletes and other marginalized and disempowered athletes have never been afforded, inside and outside of sports."

Also Brady's diet:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_Brady#Diet_and_lifestyle

Quote
He avoids most fruits, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, coffee, Gatorade, white sugar, flour, gluten, dairy, soda, cereal, white rice, potatoes, and bread.

His avoidance of dairy most likely comes from Gentile blood memory, and is not to be confused with our avoidance of dairy which is combined with liking most of the other foods he avoids (maybe not Gatorade, but you know what I mean.....).

He seems to avoid starchy (i.e. carb heavy) foods, which is what the "Paleo diet" advocates.

"liking most of the other foods he avoids"
Certainly. I recall you discussed our movement potentially releasing a cookbook one day. As a start, how about discussing our favorite recipes on this forum? I will start a thread dedicated to this topic.

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/gina-carano-dropped-mandalorian-abhorrent-023950226.html

Quote
Gina Carano has been dropped from “The Mandalorian” after the actress posted comments Lucasfilm said it considers “abhorrent” on her social media.
...
Carano came under fire on Wednesday as the hashtag #FireGinaCarano trended over an Instagram post comparing being Republican today to being Jewish during Nazi Germany.

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views,” wrote Carano.
...
Carano has spent much of 2020 sharing some particularly obnoxious political opinions on social media — including what looked a lot like support for baseless conspiracy theories and lies about nonexistent voter fraud in states that went for Joe Biden on Nov. 5, just two days after the election.

And only 9 days after that she invited people to join her on Parler, the social media platform preferred by right wing extremists. And shortly after that shared another baseless conspiracy theory against Democrats and mask-wearing.

Apparently, this was not the first time a Western "star" out of Hollywood and rightist has compared how they are treated for their views to how Jews were treated in Germany during the Third Reich:

Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies and the American Dream (1998)
Quote
An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews Invented Hollywood is a 1988 non-fiction book whose topic is the careers of several prominent Jewish film producers in the early years of Hollywood. Author Neal Gabler focuses on the psychological motivations of these film moguls, arguing that their background as Jewish immigrants from Eastern Europe shaped their careers and influenced the movies they made.

The book was adapted into a documentary film in 1998, a decade after the book was published. The movie has two titles: Hollywoodism: Jews, Movies and the American Dream (original title for A&E) and Hollywood: An Empire of Their Own (title for video/DVD). The documentary won an award for Best Jewish Experience Documentary at the 1998 Jerusalem Film Festival. - wikipedia

Muslims in Pre- and Post-9/11 Contexts
Quote
Muslims have never ceased to be important for the West and have been depicted in vilifying and stereotypical manners in western literature and films. However, after the tragic event of 9/11, a dramatic change has been observed in the world’s focus towards Muslims. Although stereotypes and discriminatory actions were nothing new to Muslims, the post-9/11 backlash was absolutely terrible and heartbreaking. People have started to consider Muslims either terrorists or sympathetic to terrorists, and they have been suspected and distrusted. Lots of books, articles and films have depicted Muslims in a derogatory and extreme manner. Pre-9/11 Hollywood movies True Lies and The Siege explicitly show the stereotypical attitude of the West to Muslims while post-9/11 novels like The Reluctant Fundamentalist by Mohsin Hamid and Once in a Promised Land by Laila Halaby depict the plight and predicament of Muslims in America. The article aims to depict the stereotypical, vilifying and antagonistic attitudes of the West to Arabs and Muslims in both pre- and post- 9/11 era. It also aims to prove that the depiction is highly motivated by the media, western authorities and the West’s desire for social, cultural and political dominance over the East.
