Ted Nugent admitted he was wrong about Covid and that counts for something

Independent

Rock guitarist Ted Nugent called the Covid pandemic a “dirty lying scam” as recently as two weeks ago. So social media reacted with predictable and justified schadenfreude when he announced Monday on a Facebook live video that he had tested positive for Covid after a severe illness. “I thought I was dying. I literally could hardly crawl out of bed the last few days,” he said. “Maybe it’s not even Covid. I’m thinking it’s just Cat Scratch Fever. Karma has a sense of humor,” actor George Takei responded on Twitter, speaking for many. 

Nugent has a long history of making racist and antisemitic statements and of generally being horrible. That hasn’t changed. In  the video in which he says he has Covid he uses anti-Asian slurs and reiterates that he won’t get the Covid vaccine because “nobody knows what’s in it” (Fact check: health officials and experts do in fact know what’s in the Covid vaccines, which is why they have been approved). Even with these major caveats, though, Nugent’s decision to acknowledge that he was sick with Covid is one of the few decent things he’s done in the last several decades.

Covid denialism has become deeply embedded on the right, where conspiratorial thinking and vaunting individualism have metastasized into a visceral, dangerous rejection of public health measures. Early in the pandemic, 60 percent of Democrats said the virus was a major threat to health, while only about a third of Republicans did. Republicans have also been resistant to wearing masks, with only 53 percent saying they wore masks in stores all or most of the time compared to 76 percent of Democrats. And now, of course, Republicans are much more likely to refuse vaccines. In March polls, more than 40 percent of Republican men said they would not get the vaccine.

  1. The FDA gave it an emergency use authorization which by definition experimental, Under the Nuremberg code no one may be coerced to participate in a medical experiment. It has not been approved or licensed by the FDA bottom line!!

  2. ‘ he won’t get the Covid vaccine because “nobody knows what’s in it” (Fact check: health officials and experts do in fact know what’s in the Covid vaccines, which is why they have been approved).’
    They have not been approved, they were granted EUA…emergency use authorization which is not the equivalent of an approved vaccine. Those getting injected with any of the experimental ‘vaccines’ are participating in a clinical trial whether they know it or not.

    1. Replied about this on Foo Fighter post…yep, Cobain just might be rolling over in his grave at what his bassist is doing… Rebellious rockers get whacked while obedient ones like Grohl and Bono and DeLonge and the rest of the multi-millionaires for hire get “hired” if you know what I mean.

      1. Yeah DL, you were out in front of this long time ago. I can’t believe how many of my young years I gave to all these sellouts. I had my bedroom walls plastered with pictures of all of them. How could a young girl know that music and lyrics were being manipulated to extract money from her? Well, at least I eventually broke the spell, especially when I saw some of ’em supporting war, and later gun-grabbing. Now, they just make me sick.

        .

    1. I’d like to see a list of

      “CELEBRITIES WHO COULDN’T BE BOUGHT”

      Ha! It would be a very short list, and of mostly dead people.

      .

      1. Yep, mostly dead people (Cobain, Cornell and Bennington ultimately did not sell out)… and I suspect that is why most do sell out! Cowards and traitors and scumbags….

  3. “Maybe it’s not even Covid. I’m thinking it’s just Cat Scratch Fever. Karma has a sense of humor,” actor George Takei responded on Twitter, speaking for many.

    I don’t care what George “Takeituptheassbysumyunguy” says. I also don’t care what Ted “Numbnuts” says either.

    (Fact check: health officials and experts do in fact know what’s in the Covid vaccines, which is why they have been approved).

    These experimental gene therapies are NOT FDA approved, nor would I give a $hit if they were. This virus has never even been proven to exist. To any and all jackasses eagerly volunteering to take these lethal injections, the world will be a much better place without your stupidity.

  4. Right. Just keep on lying to people claiming these “vaccines” are “approved” so that those who can’t stand the notion of doing their own research or thinking outside the box keep getting “the jab”…. That way, you psychos can’t kill off us awakened truth seekers since we won’t “vaccinate.” And we know these traitor “celebrities” are not actually getting jabs unless the intention is to kill them off. DMX comes to mind…he’s a gangsta rapper-turned-Christian, that’s why!
