Ted Nugent Metaphors Draw Attention of Secret Service
Democrats are aghast after Ted Nugent, in reference to the need to defeat the Dems in November, said “we need to take these sons of bitches out!”
Oh wait, that was said by Jimmy Hoffa Jr. at an event attended by President Obama, and it was directed at the Tea Party (Obama later said he was “proud” of Hoffa). So “take these sons of bitches out” is an acceptable election metaphor. An unacceptable election metaphor was used by Ted Nugent, and apparently the Secret Service is now involved:
The U.S. Secret Service is looking into a violent rant by “Catch Scratch Fever” rocker Ted Nugent in which he denounced President Barack Obama and his top advisers as “evil” and urged National Rifle Association members to help “chop their heads off in November.”
“I’ll tell you this right now: If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” Nugent said. “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
Nugent, speaking at the organization’s annual gathering over the weekend, praised NRA members but warned that if they did not “get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made out of.”
“If the coyote’s in your living room, pissing on your couch, it’s not the coyote’s fault. It’s your fault for not shooting him,” he said. He also denounced the administration as “criminals” and said a Democratic victory in November would mean “we’ll be a suburb of Indonesia next year” — an apparent reference to Obama’s boyhood time there.
The MSM and Beltway liberals (pardon the redundancy) are wondering if Mitt Romney will publicly call out and denounce the offensive and vulgar entertainer. Will Mitt even get so disgusted that he’ll ask the Super PAC that supports his campaign to send back Nugent’s million dollar campaign donation? Wait — dammit!… sorry, I got my people mixed up again.
Below is the clip in question of Nugent at the NRA convention. Maybe The Nuge could have softened it up a bit by instead saying “we need to put ‘em in a ‘Stranglehold’ in November.” No? Yeah, you’re right. The NYT headline the next day would have read “Ted Nugent encourages rabid right-wing throng to asphyxiate political opponents, Romney yet to denounce Motor City Madman”:
