Ted Nugent isn’t happy about the way the midterm elections turned out in his home state of Michigan. The 69-year-old rocker known for his conservative views shared his frustration on Facebook Wednesday.
“Real God country family Michiganiacs are heartbroke that more of us want the once great state of Michigan to turn into a California s***hole,” he wrote. “Downright insane cultural suicide. Thanks for nothing a**holes.”
Democrat Gretchen Whitmer won the race for governor against Attorney General Bill Schuette, a Republican endorsed by President Trump. Sen. Debbie Stabenow, the Democratic incumbent, also won a fourth term. She was in a close race with veteran John James, who also had the support of the president. Republicans will keep control of the Michigan House of Representatives, although they lost seats to Democrats.
Nugent’s post resonated with his right-leaning base, with many commiserating over the outcome. “John James is a fine man and would have served Michigan with dignity, pride, and dedication. The disease of progressivism marches on…” one person wrote.
Another Facebook user added, “Mind blowing and saddening, Uncle Ted. Great states like Michigan turning this way. These people deserve the California disaster they’re voting for. Unfortunately, we reap the damage done by these brain dead sheep.”
There were also a handful of people encouraging Nugent to run for office. One comment read, “Actually Ted, i blame you. you could have moved back home, ran for governor and swept the state. as a conservative republican.”
In October, Nugent took a break from railing against liberals — for the most part — to complain about how he’s not in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
“Abandon egos, bragging, and Ted Nugent speaking on behalf of Ted Nugent; is it or is it not vulgar, dishonest, and obscene that Grand Master Flash, Patti Smith, and ABBA are in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame but Ted “F***ing” Nugent isn’t? Is that the most outrageous and disgusting lie you have ever seen?” he said in an interview with online magazine My Global Mind.
“It’s not fan driven” he said. “Its ultra-leftist liberal CEO driven gang who couldn’t give a rat’s ass about the music.”
Looks like it’s back to business as usual with politics now.
