Secret Service to Meet with Ted Nugent
Ted Nugent the fading rocker who’s most famous song is a salty, rendition of a sexually transmitted disease “Cat Scratch Fever” is meeting with the Secret Service tomorrow.
After Nugent made some very strange, violent comments about the election like “Chop their heads off” and “I’ll either be in dead or in jail this time next year” on the air waves in regards to getting the President out of office, he has attracted the condemnation of the left.
Ted Nugent- in his hay day.
Mitt Romney actually requested Ted Nugent’s endorsement after he made a speech at the NRA -National Rifle Association for his bid to capture the right wing gun owners votes. Romney’s son commented on Twitter about the endorsement saying “How cool is that?”. Not very it appears.
After that radio broadcast, the whole social media universe came down on Ted Nugent and Mitt Romney and some of them were conservative republcians that would distance themselves from the “fringe” element of the radical Tea Party.
In 2008, Ted Nugent also endorsed Sarah Palin who also portrayed an image of promoting guns, and coined the phrase:
Don’t Retreat, Reload.
Lawmakers at the time took exception to that phrase ripping the campaign for their choice of words in attempting to incite the right wing gun activists.
If, Andrew Braitbart were alive today, he would be supporting Ted Nugent’s right to free speech. However, after the Sarah Palin comments with gun scope images on her website of Representative Gabrielle Giffords office, Homeland Security is taking no chances on this incident.
Ted Nugent has long been critical and uses crude language in discussing the President and other democrats who are in office since before the last election. His main contention is that President Obama will take his guns and he fears new gun law restrictions by the democrats which of course never materialized.
Whether Nugent still feels this battle cry of imaginary gun controls, still works to rally the Tea party gun owners or not, he has caught the attention of Homeland Security and they are taking him very seriously. In the video at one of his concerts or rallies he holds up a machine gun and again uses some profane language in describing the President.
The Secret Service has requested a meeting with Nugent on his comments and perhaps they will advise him to stop inciting violence against the President or attempting to “enrage” the voting public who carry guns everywhere. The fireworks are just beginning in what will be a bumpy campaign on both sides in a run up to the General Election in November.
Some of the phrases Ted Nugent used in his NRA speech yesterday:
Nugent had said in his address that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
“If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made of,” he said at the NRA.
Nugent’s words got even more descriptive at times, calling Obama a criminal and saying his administration is “wiping its a– with the Constitution.”
He also flayed four Supreme Court justices for what he says is their stance against Americans’ “right to keep and bear arms.”
He ended with a call to politically decapitate Democrats in November: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
