Conservative rocker Ted Nugent, who has a history of inflammatory remarks, vowed Thursday to tone down his act and called for civility on both sides of the political aisle.
“I have reevaluated my approach,” he told Curtis Sliwa and Eboni Williams on ABC radio in New York. He said he was a “street fighter” who used “certain harsh terms.”
But he said he plans to watch himself now.
“At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me that I just can’t use those harsh terms. I cannot, and I will not,” he said, adding:
“And I encourage even my friends/enemies on the left in the Democrat and liberal world that we have got to be civil to each other, that the whole world is watching America, where you have the God-given right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, and we have got to be more respectful to the other side.”
