A Democratic Party blogger says he wants to shoot Rush Limbaugh and is calling for volunteers to assassinate rock star Ted Nugent, who champions the Second Amendment.
Hart Williams, a former writer for porn magazine Hustler and who now toils for the Democratic Daily, was waxing incoherent about a recent Wall Street Journal op-ed by Nugent, complaining that it was likely ghost-written.
“How we can remain ‘civil’ in the face of this is beyond my ken,” wrote Williams. “I will only reiterate what I’ve said WHEN they manage to inevitably push their litany of hatespeak into actual bloodletting, and full-blown civil war (for there is no other place that this hatred of American against American can go), well … I’ve got dibs on Rush, as soon as it’s legal and lawful to shoot him. Whoever wants Ted Nugent is welcome to him, but I would prefer that you would call it now, so as to conserve on ammunition. We will need to manage it prudently. But when the day comes that they have finally set brother against brother, and sister against sister in the name of their pocketbooks, I won’t approach exterminating them with anything approaching remorse. They’ve already told me what they think of me, of my friends and of my peers. Now, I’m returning the favor. Put that in your pipe and have the WSJ editorial staff show you how to smoke it, Nugent. Courage.”
The Democratic Daily is the brainchild of Pamela Leavey, whose claim to fame is working as a volunteer writer for JohnKerry.com during the 2004 election cycle. Her site describes her as a writer, entrepreneur and single mother living in Southern California.
Williams identified himself as a former editor of Hustler, who, among other duties, read letters from readers on their “real-life” sexual experiences.
He says that job showed him writing is more difficult than it looks. His point being that Nugent’s op-ed was so tightly written it had to have been ghost-written.
He made a similar point about Chuck Norris’ columns in WND.
“I have no doubt that it was heavily rewritten by the WSJ staff, if not – as is too often the case with our books, our articles, and columns by ‘famous’ people – entirely ghost-written, with a vague idea of where Nugent either stood, or what he was willing to ‘say,'” wrote Williams.
He continued: “A good (alleged) example is Chuck Norris’ ‘column’ on the WorldNetDaily website. Joseph Farah, the malady behind the WND internet publishing empire loves ‘celebrity’ columns, and I have no doubt that virtually none of the ‘celebrities’ involved ever lifts a finger to have those columns written. This is the dirty secret of American publishing for a century and more. The vast amount of ghost-written, and simply written to go with a ‘licensed’ name (recognizable, ‘celebrity’) adds to a staggering heap of lies.”
