All Things, Including Ted Nugent, Shall Pass
For today’s Thing Thursday I thought simple might be best. After all Thing Thursday is intended to give me a breather from writing blogs while nonetheless provided content of interest. It’s also intended to provide readers the opportunity to get a break from long winded blogs proselytizing about stereotype related topics that you might come to expect from The Communicated Stereotype and similar sites and bloggers.
So today’s thing is simple. Ted Nugent. I say thing because he has turned himself into just that.
An object of humor and ridicule. He is no longer a complex and unique person as we all should be.
An object representing what America once was. An artifact of long ago through which we can see how people used to express racism with utter confidence and aggression.
Luckily, as an object I can set him aside never to be thought of again like too many other useless things in the attic of my mind.
Sure some of you may obsess over what he said. But why? It reflects such an obviously archiec viewpoint that it hardly necessitates mentioning. Like the stale clothing of an out-of-touch relative.
As the poem says, “All things shall pass.” It has already passed from my mind and I urge this thing to pass from yours as well.
