them"?On this basis, Rick. He is a highly visible public figure. He will
be looked at as a role model and as a giver of wisdom. If he says
its ok to eat Wheaties then his fans will eat Wheaties. Thats why
companies pay big bucks to famous people to endorse their products.
They pay the big bucks because it works.
again, I ask, what is wrong with the statement "when they attack, shoot
sounds like words of wisdom to me.
So, go the next step.
why would I want to make the same leap you are? you may be a
contortionist, but I'd pull a muscle if I tried it.
Ted Nugent has told his fans that its perfectly ok for them to judge
who is bad, and if someone is bad, to shoot em.

followers that God wills them to do it.
I have never heard anyone worshiping Ted (other than in jest), and Ted
doesn't tell anyone to go out and kill innocents simply because they
are different than he is. He's saying if someone is breaking the law

No, I don't. The day he shoots an innocent, or someone else shoots an
innocent because of him, we can talk. He's not inciting, he's making

claimed any victims in all of that time.
