Ted Nugent to Hugo Chavez

'ADIOS MO FO'

EXCLUSIVE

0306_ted_hugo_getty_article
Ultra-conservative freedom-loving Republican rock star Ted Nugent has three words for the dead former President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez -- "ADIOS MO FO."

Nugent -- a staunch anti-Communist -- tells TMZ, "All dictators, tyrants, slave-drivers and despots should die ASAP. Let freedom ring."

Chavez died yesterday following a battle with cancer.

It makes total sense Nugent would hate the guy -- Chavez was an outspoken anti-American who has long criticized America's foreign policy. During his political career, Chavez also allied with the Communist government of Cuba and the Socialist governments of other Latin American countries.

In sum, Chavez pretty much embodied everything Nugent hates about extremist left-wing politics.

'MURICA.

It takes a guy like Ted Nugent to draw all the leftist TMZ followers out from under their rocks. Way to go Ted, stay on their commie asses.

Man, you guys are a rough crowd. TN has his opinion, albeit a harsh one. I would not wish death or hell on anyone. That's an ugly position for any of us to take. I am one of those horrid conservatives who-surprise- has gay friends, liberal friends, black friends and guess what? I have no desire to wish them harm-as someone else suggested. I know MANY conservatives, and not one is an extremist. There is extreme on the right and extreme on the left and we all know it. But everyone in the country , on both sides, are tired of being lumped in with "the crazies." To the point of Ted's opinion that he was getting at, and not so well, was that Chavez (and other dictators) are narcissistic authoritarians. There is no place in the world for people like that. I don't want them dead, I just want them somewhere off to themselves where they can't harm a whole country of people. Just go away! Chavez in particular brought his country down economically for his own glory. The poor stay poor, the rich get richer and more powerful. Sounds familiar. The people of that nation are all crying now, not because he was such a great man, but because now they are asking "Who is going to take care of us?" What those poor people don't realize is that he was doing the opposite and getting rich in the process.

who, precisely, does Ted Nugent think supported dictators like Pinochet and the Shah of Iran and overthrew democratically elected leaders like Allende and Mossadegh? His Republican heroes. Not that there isn't blame all around but Eisenhower had Mossadegh overthrown and think of how progressive and democratic Iran would be now if we hadn't, and Nixon had Allende killed for God's sake. with dozens of other examples! Suharto, Saddam Hussein, on and on. Ted Nugent really is ignorant.

I can say the same foe the GOPers...at least the country of Venezuela supplied a lot of low income or middle class Americans with free heat! Not a supporter of communism but all for helping someone other the rich

Damn it must be a really slow news day to even run this crap. Usually when it is this slow we get MMA, or WWE crap, which is better than this

Rock on you haters. You make my day!! I absolutely adore and admire Ted. Gee - he only stands for freedom - why would anyone like him for that!!!! Go to South American and join the socialists... or Cuba and join the communists. All you who hate freedom, are ironically, free to leave the good old USofA. Btw - we won't miss you one bit.
