But while liberals might loathe him (as I do too), he’s a very well known public figure with a decent amount of influence over conservative voters. Hell, he was a campaign buddy of Texas gubernatorial candidate Greg Abbott. So whether or not we find him particularly relevant, millions of conservatives do. So, unfortunately, he does matter as a “personality” who can influence potential voters.
I don’t need to spend too much time talking about all the scummy things about Nugent that the vast majority of us are well aware of already. The draft-dodging, his sick obsession with underage girls and blatant racism have all been well documented numerous times.
So let’s just focus on his most recent rant where he evoked his standing as a board member of the NRA to go off on what can best be described as an incoherent pro-gun rant that was capped off with a threat against President Obama, several leading Democrats and former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Nugent posted on his Facebook:
GUNRIGHTS HERO PROFESSOR JOHN LOTT blew the freedom haters & gungrabbers outta the water with his stats/facts broadside MORE GUNS = LESS CRIME suckerpunch truth bludgeon. Read the book, share the truth with your elected officials & give away as many books to as many people as you can to de-sheeple the braindead masses with their peace&love disease. Make a donatoin to the CRIME PREVENTION RESEARCH CENTER to destroy the Obama/Holder/Clinton/Schumer/Pilosi/Boxer/Feinstein/Durbin/Bloomburgh propaganda jihad against our right to self-defense & TRTKABA. JOIN THE NRA! Be the best American you can be. Freedom or their evil carcasses for traction back to it.
Now, ignoring several misspellings (including Pelosi and Bloomberg), I wouldn’t blame you for thinking these were the deranged ramblings of someone who just escaped from an insane asylum. Because, quite honestly, that’s exactly what I think Ted Nugent is. In my opinion, he’s absolutely batshit crazy.
But be that as it may, he’s still an NRA board member and just advocated for the deaths of people like President Obama, Eric Holder, Clinton (I’m assuming Hillary) and several other high-level current and former public figures if they were to happen to be responsible for passing sensible gun regulations.
Because in this rant he’s clearly insinuating that guns equal freedom. And he also makes it clear that he either wants freedom, or those people responsible for regulating that “freedom” (aka guns) should have their “evil carcasses” dragged for traction back to it.
But I think the saddest part to all of this is, this isn’t the first time he’s made a veiled threat on the president’s life. Just a couple of years ago he got in some hot water when he said that President Obama should “suck on his machine gun.” And let’s not forget when he called Hillary Clinton a “c*nt.”
Again, this is someone who’s embraced by many members of the Republican party and adored by millions of conservatives.
The continued Republican support of a scumbag like Ted Nugent, someone who’s an absolute embarrassment to not only this country but the entire human race, shows just how low conservatives will stoop to support someone simply because they have a sick obsession with guns.
