A true hallmark of modern day liberalism is the exact opposite of what liberalism is supposed to entail; instead of allowing a variety of opinions and ideas, liberals today work to restrict messages that conflict with their ideology.
Such is the case in the recent decision by Verizon FIOS who recently dropped both the Sportsman Channel, which features “Amazing America with Sarah Palin,” and the Outdoor Channel, which features Ted Nugent’s show. Both shows unapologetically celebrate America and the Second Amendment.
The company claims that low viewership numbers are to blame; however, consistently, CNN and MSNBC struggle for ratings, but the company has not jettisoned the dead weight.
Famed rockstar and American patriot Ted Nugent says that he isn’t buying the rationale behind the decision.
Discussing the pervasive liberal agenda on a recent radio interview, Nugent unleashed,
“Political correctness is choking the life out of the freedom in this country. You’ve got a bunch of punks on the other side of the world that think that somehow in between barbecues the animals have rights—which is so absurd that Alfred E. Newman wouldn’t include it in the next issue of Mad Magazine because he’d be too busy flying over the cuckoo’s nest.”
Nugent ranted about the “soullessness of those on the Left that are against truth, nature, God’s creation, and the perfection of tooth, fang, and claw that produces back straps to feed America and the world. It really is Planet of the Apes stuff when you’re against this kind of perfection.”
Regarding Verizon, Nugent said,
“Anybody that’s against hunting, fishing and trapping, the Second Amendment, and self-defense—you really have to be from some planet other than Earth.”
Nugent countered the claim that viewership was low and directly called-out Verizon decision-makers:
“It’s a lie. It’s a political correct escape mechanism. Verizon is infested with anti-hunters, animal rights freaks, anti-gunners, people that don’t believe in self-defense.”
The left is thoroughly opposed to legitimate political opposition and it shows. From government bureaucracy to private-sector liberals, the goal is often the same: to silence those who offer a different perspective.
