Timothy Johnson: Ted Nugent Compares Keynesian Economics To “Jerry Sandusky Managing A Little Boys’ Football Team”

In a July 26 column for the Washington Timesprominent Mitt Romney endorser and National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent labeled supporters of Keynesian economics “socialist” before comparing the idea of government playing an expanded role in the economy to “Jerry Sandusky managing a little boys’ football team.”

Fedzilla is growing fatter, less accountable and less transparent by gorging itself on our tax dollars. Instead of tightening Fedzilla’s fiscal belt, government bureaucrats just buy him bigger belts and suspenders, and he gets fatter and smellier each day. The only good pig is a dead pig.

Regrettably, there are way too many intellectually stunted Americans who support this gluttonous and irresponsible spending curse. They are called socialists. Socialists believe in Keynesian economics, which supports government control and meddling in our economy. It’s akin to Jerry Sandusky managing a little boys’ football team. Another, more accurate name for Keynesian economics is Kamikaze economics. 

On June 22, Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant football coach for Penn State University, was convicted on 45 counts related to sexually abusing 10 boys during a 15-year period. He faces life in prison.  

Nugent’s comments are just the latest bizarre outburst from the outspoken right-wing activist.

  • Discussing the Supreme Court decision to uphold healthcare reform, Nugent wrote, “Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War.” [Washington Times7/6/12]
  • Nugent suggested Romney would win more votes if he told Latinos to act more like Asians by stressing the importance of education to their children. [Washington Times, 6/13/12]
  • Nugent became enraged at an interviewer’s suggestion that he could not attract moderate voters for Romney before stating, “I’m an extremely loving, passionate man, and people who investigate me honestly, without the baggage of political correctness, ascertain the conclusion that I’m a damned nice guy, and if you can find a screening process more powerful than that, I’ll suck your d–k.” He then turned to a female CBS producer and said, “Or I’ll f–k you, how’s that sound?” [This Morning5/4/12]

    Wait exactly what was My spouse and i missing here? The Chair for economic council wants to extend the tax holiday for a few weeks, the home wants to expand it first yr. If we select 2 months we are back at the table in 2 a few months. Two months via now the affect on middle class families will be the same in principle as it is currently. Therefore the Us senate desires to supply 2 months of more duty holiday, as well as the House wishes to allow a different calendar year. Hmm…
