Ted Nugent, Who Is Under Investigation For Threatening Democrats, Endorses Romney At NRA Event (VIDEO)
Deranged and sociopathic “one hit wonder” musician, Ted Nugent, who’s ironically more famous for his wingnut views than his actual music, brought his unmedicated ”don’t tread on me” teabagger crap to the annual convention of the National Rifle Association this past weekend. To say the motor city madmen is a gun enthusiast is like saying that NJ Governor Chris Christie is a food enthusiast, as Nugent lives in camouflage gear (even though he actually dodged the Vietnam Draft) and kills every living animal within range.
Despite the fact that Mitt Romney was largely anti-gun as Governor of Massachusetts, it appears he secured the ever-so coveted washed up sociopathic musician vote, as Nugent peppered his endorsement of Mitt Romney over the weekend with a vulgar, vote-against-your economic-self-interests-before-Obama-comes-to-your-shack-and-exproriates-your-guns-rant. One might wonder why Nugent didn’t throw his daft endorsement behind Ron Paul (he’s still running) since it’s widely known that Ron Paul’s unbending views on the second amendment and government in general resonate with the Nugent crowd. Perhaps the madmen hasn’t blown away all his brain cells and realizes that Dr. Paul’s candidacy is laughably untenable at this point.
“If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re dead,” Nugent declared. “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” (Source: SeatlePI)
But Nugent wasn’t done proclaiming his man love for Romney and spouting bilious rhetoric towards Obama and Democrats.
And Obama should sever his campaign’s ties to Bill Maher??
The Baracknophobia that animates the right into a foaming frenzy is beyond hyperbole. Further, Nugent forgoes the little credibility he has when he calls Obama a “piece of s— and tells him to suck on his machine gun,” which is just a taste of some of the public policy criticisms Nugent uttered on stage in 2008.
Here’s the video from Nugent’s blistering NRA Speech:
Because of the threatening nature of Nugent’s comments, he’s now being investigated by the Secret Service.
