Ted Nugent — the proud gun-owner, poorly coiffed Michigander, and washed-up rocker — has said some silly and offensive things in the past, and not just while performing. In 2007, he said the following during a concert: “Obama, he’s a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary [Clinton], you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch.”
So that’s his level of political discourse. Of course, he seems to be speaking figuratively if distastefully. But he made another rather appalling statement over the weekend at the NRA convention in St. Louis:
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
I suggest we ObamaCrats give Ted his wish and vote 500% for POTUS Barack Hussein Obama, so Ted will end up in jail. With a Black 350 pound cell mate named Roscoe, who “likes” racist ass caucasian white boys. A lot. Or dead would work for me as well.
He also recommends decapitating Democrats: “We need to ride onto that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.”
“Threatening violence — or whatever it is that Nugent’s threatening — is clearly beyond the pale, but Nugent’s not the one running for president,” said U.S. Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz, chairwoman of the DNC. “The question is: Does Romney agree with him? Right now, we don’t know.”
Ms. Schultz said. “Yet what have we heard from Mitt Romney and the Republican Party, who should be outraged that someone representing them is using language like this to make a political point? Absolutely nothing.”
She added, “Mitt Romney must condemn Nugent’s violent and hateful rhetoric immediately, as it has no place in our political discourse or this campaign.”
Yes Ms. Wasserman Schultz, we do know. Where is the outrage from Mitt & Ann? Where is the concern over these words like there was outrage & concern over Hilary Rosen’s words? Hilary Rosen told the facts & truth when she stated lying ass Ann Romney never worked a day in her life. Ms. Rosen was crucified over that statement. Where is Teds crucifixion? Where are the Democrats shouting that Mitt & Ann distance themselves fro good ole boy Ted?
Ted Nugent is a “Christian” and a so called godly man. Watch his giggling response to a lone Faux Spews reporter who attempts to ask Ted “who would Jesus bomb”:
Again, it’s hard to take this as a literal threat of assassination against the president, but how else would Nugent have us understand it? It goes without saying that comments like this have no place in politics. Indeed, the Secret Service tells New York that they’re investigating his statement (not that they don’t have other things to worry about at the moment. Nugent will likely end up with slap on the wrist, if that).
I volunteer to slap Ted. Not on his wrist. The Secret Service needs to interrogate ANYbody that threatens the life, health & well being of the President. Tho”rough”ly.
There’s an additional political wrinkle: Nugent is a Mitt Romney endorser, from the days when Romney was worried about losing the Michigan primary and happily scooping up endorsements from every trashy, violence-prone, Detroit rocker he could find, although Nugent’s endorsement actually came after the primary.
Democrats are hastening to tie the presumptive nominee to the guitarist. Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz wrote in an email to supporters Tuesday calling on Romney to denounce the comments. And he has: Andrea Saul, a campaign spokesperson, said in an email, “Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil.”
The Romneys probably look at this shit from drugged out has been Ted as another “gift”.
Any Democrat who describes Nugent as a “Romney surrogate” is being just as disingenuous as Republicans who called Hilary Rosen an “Obama strategist.” In fact, the White House seems pretty blase about it, calling the kerfuffle “noise.” “We can’t be policing the statements of supporters across the board,” said Press Secretary Jay Carney. Perhaps a better question is how the NRA feels about Nugent’s comments.
Encouraging the audience to vote for Mr. Romney, Mr. Nugent said that the current administration was using the Constitution as bathroom tissue, adding that America had “a president and an attorney general who doesn’t even like the Constitution.”
Mr. Nugent continued: “We got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everybody know here that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense. That sounds like a stoned hippie. That doesn’t sound like a Supreme Court anything. It sounds like a supremely intellectually vacuous punk.”
Pick him up Secret Service, that is if you can keep your cock zipped inside your pants, and not in some Colombian hooker.
This shit must stop.
