  • TED NUGENT Says Facebook Is ‘Lying’ About The Number Of Followers On His Page
    Outspoken conservative rocker Ted Nugent claims that Facebook is “lying” about the number of his followers on the popular social media platform, insisting that he has more than seven times the fans than the officially reported figure.

    Nugent currently has three million and three hundred thousand Facebook followers — a respectable statistic compared to the number of Facebook fans attracted by most other rock artists.

    But the musician, who has been described by some as a right-wing lunatic with a soft spot for conspiracy theories and a knack for off-color humor, believes that Facebook is intentionally underreporting the number of users of the social media juggernaut who regularly flock to his Facebook page.

    Speaking to Doug Podell of Detroit’s radio station 94.7 WCSX, Nugent said (hear audio below): “Right now, Facebook claims that I have three and a half million Facebookers. I’ve got people deep, deep into government Internet security that admit that Facebook is lying. I have over twenty-five million Facebookers.”

    Ted illustrated his claim using a specific example. “Last week I posted a meme that just identified something real simple, that there’s gonna be a civil war… It was a joke — that somebody is talking about a civil war and one side has eight trillion rounds of ammo and the other side can’t choose the proper bathroom,” he said. “It’s a joke, you goofball! I mean, didn’t anybody ever watch Richard Pryor’s movies? I mean, c’mon! So people went crazy with that. But I had almost twenty million hits. Now you don’t get twenty million hits if you’ve only got three and a half million followers. Do you hear me? [Laughs] So I’ve got tens of millions and I thank them all.”

    Nugent credited his social media etiquette for his high number of Facebook followers, explaining: “I’m not an electronic, technology guy, but every night we have these danger-zone get-togethers backstage, [and] every night people are saying that there’s no better Facebook on the planet that is more fun, more involved and where the host of the Facebook comes on and communicates openly and absolutely unguarded than the Ted Nugent Facebook. So I’m real proud of that, because my happiness comes from communicating with people and optimizing the good while we do our best to get rid of the bad and the ugly. And that identifies my Facebook.”

    Ted went on to call himelf “a communicating maniac. I really believe that open communication is the ultimate system by which people can understand each other, share ideas and experiences,” he said.

    Nugent made headlines in April when he got to spend some time in the Oval Office with President Donald Trump. Nugent and fellow Detroit-bred musician Kid Rock were joined in the White House by Sarah Palin, the former Alaskan governor and GOP vice presidential nominee, who posted photos of the visit on social media the following morning.

    Interview (audio):

  • COREY TAYLOR Believes DONALD TRUMP Is ‘Full Of S**t’, Says American Tourists Are ‘Dicks’
    HardDrive Radio recently conducted an interview with SLIPKNOT and STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor. You can now watch the chat below.

    Asked what he would say to those people who insist that we shoud give President Donald Trump a chance, Taylor said: “I would say he’s had a chance for the last two hundred days now. We’re in day two hundred of the Trump presidency. It’s ridiculous. Never mind the fact that the Republicans hold House, hold Senate, they now have the deciding factor in the Supreme Court, and they have the presidency, and they still can’t get anything done. So… how much of a chance do you really think he needs? Never mind the fact that everything that comes out of his mouth feels like a poison pill: encouraging police brutality, encouraging a travel ban, encouraging some sort of wall that no one in their right mind is gonna pay for.

    “Is everybody sick of winning yet? Are you tired of winning?” he continued. “I’m sorry.

    “This is me trying not to be a dick. I empathize. I understand — you want someone who you can see yourself in. But he is so full of shit, he’s gonna paint himself to look exactly like he wants you to see him.”

    Taylor added: “There’s none of him in you and vice versa, and he is leading you down a path to make you feel like an idiot. And I’m sorry, and I’m trying to get people to come together and start talking to each other instead of looking to firebrands for answers that are never gonna be there.”

    Corey also talked about the passage in his new book, “America 51”, where he discusses how the world at large views American tourists: self-entitled, oblivious to matters outside of the U.S., with little desire to learn of different cultures or languages.

    “We are dicks,” he said. “Just the sense of self-importance that comes off us in waves, it’s kind of hard to deal with. It makes me avoid American tourists as well. I tend to stick to myself anyway, but when I see a family or a group of businessmen. Oh, they’re the worst — they wander in like they own the place, and they leave like they just shit on it. And everything has to deal with not only their entrance and their subsequent terrorizing of everything, but then when they walk out, now, because you’re American, you have to deal with the consequences of their actions, man, and it’s embarrassing. There’s no reason for us to do that. It’s like we leave the confines of our country and forget morals, forget manners, we forget how to be good to each other, we forget the fact that, oh, we happen to be in another country — maybe they don’t speak English. Not everywhere’s Canada, okay? Sorry.”

    “America 51” was released on August 8 via Da Capo Press. The book, which is subtitled “A Probe Into The Realities That Are Hiding Inside ‘The Greatest Country In The World'”, was described by its publisher as a reflection of how touring with bands has taught Corey “what it means to be an American in an increasingly unstable world.” It features Taylor’s thoughts on the state of the U.S. and had to be rewritten after Donald Trump was elected president last November.
