Ted Nugent apologized. Now it's Spike Lee's turn.
Rocker Ted Nugent, a Republican and a fierce defender of the Second Amendment, said this about President Obama: "I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame, enough Americans to be ever-vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America."
The reaction, not surprisingly, was strong.
Nugent apologized, sort of: "Instead of using terms like 'subhuman mongrel,' I'm going to get right to the meat of the matter where our president is a liar. He lies about you can keep your doctor, period. Over and over again he lies about Benghazi. He's lying about the IRS. So I won't call him names anymore. I'm going to get right down to the nitty-gritty and identify the criminal behavior by the people abusing power in the United States government."
Now another apology is in order.
Director Spike Lee is an Obama supporter. For a fundraiser, Lee had a $38,500-per-plate dinner for Obama and about 60 people. Curious, did Lee's and Obama's guests commiserate on "racial oppression" and "income inequality" while dining in Lee's home, currently on the market for $32 million? But we digress.
Lee sided with Minister Louis Farrakhan when the leader of the Nation of Islam accused President George W. Bush's administration of intentionally blowing up levees during Hurricane Katrina. "It's not far-fetched," Lee said, "And also I would like to say it's not necessarily blow it up. But, the residents of that ward, they believe it, there was a Hurricane Betsy in '65, the same that happened where a choice had to be made, one neighborhood got to save another neighborhood and flood another 'hood, flood another neighborhood ... " Far-fetched? "Presidents have been assassinated," Lee said, "So why is that so far-fetched? ... Do you think that election in 2000 was fair? You don't think that was rigged? If they can rig an election, they can do anything!"
No apology from Lee for accusing Bush of mass murder?
