Ted Nugent on Joe Rogan Podcast: You’re an ‘Idiot’ if don’t support hunting hogs from helicopters

The motor city madman was back on Joe Rogan’s podcast this week!

During his first appearance on “The Joe Rogan Experience” back in 2018, Ted talked about the follies of gun control, however, during this most recent visit, he discussed everything from mowing down wild hogs from helicopters in Texas to the origins of and influences behind his rock ‘n roll masterpiece “Stranglehold.”

“If I may put the definitive comment on that,” begins Nugent, “If you have a problem with killing pigs from a helicopter you’re an idiot!”

Both clips are embedded for your viewing pleasure.

The last time “The Nuge” made headlines was in August of this year when he announced his departure from the NRA board of directors.

“The time has come for me to face the dangers of burning the candle at both ends,” wrote Nugent.

Later, he went on to say, “So due to constant scheduling conflicts, I hereby resign my position on the NRA Board of Directors, wishing you well and Godspeed.”

    Then you don’t support the other animals either. Invasive and feral species often eat other animals out of house and home, eventually resulting in several species dying from starvation.
    So, technically speaking, you want them all to die miserably, because you refuse to look at this situation from a standpoint of Conservation.
    Eventually, that may be the fate of the Desert Bighorn, as the local fauna it eats is being taken by feral horses and donkeys.
    And the stupid horse lovers are stopping the elimination of those horses and donkeys, so it’s gonna be bye bye Desert Bighorn.
    Just stupid.

    I support hunting animals. You people that don’t are the cavemen that sat around on your asses doing nothing but wanting all the hunters in the tribe to feed you. You evolved into brainless, ball-less, lazy, good for nothing liberal Marxists/Leninists, aka Liberals. You have no idea what democracy is, or that this is a Republic and not a Democracy. Likewise with blm and antifa. Notice I put them in small letters. Black lives don’t matter when they are thieves, murderers, thugs and criminals, and antifa are idiots that have spent to many years in the socialist education arena and can’t think for themselves. So Bones, you can take your opinion and shove it where the sun don’t shine, or I’ll be happy to do it for you, myself.

    I can’t imagine being able to aim steady with a vibrating helicopter. You’d have to use an automatic weapon and just spray the herd. I’m all for killing as many hogs as possible whenever and however by any means possible. They have overtaken my property and are doing hideous damage. We have a couple groups that come over on weekends and hunt for them. We don’t charge them a thing. BTW I happen to be vegan strictly for personal health reasons. God gave us animals on this earth to be eaten by humans, and canine teeth. Jesus never said to stop eating meat. So all you anti-hunting types need to get off your angelic pedestals and realize that even as a baby you drank milk – the product of an animal – in order to survive. And maybe you should stop wearing leather, too. Nuge is good people.

      Here’s another one for everyone, (I’ll speak in the vernacular). They can send a son of a bitch to the moon, they can splice a goddamned gene and split a fucking atom but they can’t do anything about this fucking bindweed or these fucking prairie dogs in western Kansas. The same can be said about the feral pig situation in Texas and the southern United States. Take in to consideration that a pig’s gestation period is three months, three weeks, three days and (supposedly three hours and three minutes) which makes for a pretty prolific species. Plus, being one of the smartest animals on the planet gives rise to a really big problem.

    I see the basement trolls have found G.A. now.

    Best to not engage or feed them with responses.

    As to Ted, he made a bit of a grammatical mistake calling others who simply don’t support chopper-shooting as *idiots* but then…. He IS Ted.

    Ñuge was 100% right! The anti-Hog eradicators are idiots. Their very vapid comments prove it.

  • Dillon December 3, 2021, 9:15 am

    Hey Rick, you are a vegan then? That is the only way a person can have any ground to stand on saying that kind of stuff.
