Secret Service Looking Into Ted Nugent's Violent Obama Threat
6
While Ted Nugent's renown might have come from his influential guitar pyrotechnics in the mid 1970s, these days he's probably just as well known for his outspoken political beliefs. And, indeed, in light of the upcoming U.S presidential election, Nugent's controversial remarks may have landed him in a spot of bother; specifically, he's in trouble with the U.S secret service following some inflammatory comments made about Barack Obama at a National Rifle Association convention: "If Barack Obama becomes the President in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. It's good people who bent over and let the enemy in. 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." Nugent also offered the following warning to NRA members: "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." He also claimed that a democratic victory in November would mean "[America will] be a suburb of Indonesia next year" in reference to the time that Barack Obama spent in that country as a boy. Secret service spokesperson Brian Leary has responded to Yahoo news in regard to Nugent's outburst: "We are aware of the incident and we are conducting appropriate follow-up." Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the presidential candidate that Ted Nugent is endorsing, has been quick to distance the campaign from Nugent's inflammatory remarks: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil." You can watch the Motor City Madman (whose old school nickname takes on a new meaning in light of these recent comments) ranting and raving at the following location.

    I thought the Secret Service was too busy with prostitutes to be doing any investigations?

    And what's the deal with only two political parties? Are people too stupid to pick between more? Do they just flip a coin and stick with that the rest of their lives?
    For most people it's a sad case of "Hey I was told that this was the right way when I was younger and I don't like to think too hard so I'll just stick with it!"

    While stuff like this is to be expected from Nugent, it doesn't make him any less of a shithead.

    The race card is often a valid one, but it's probably not the biggest reason rednecks hate Obama. It's more of the Cherry on top. But seriously, how do you expect the president to make a change in only 4 years? It's not enough to fix all the f-ups of previous administrations. Especially when half of the House won't even LET him pass certain bills. Is Healthcare REALLY that evil? Is providing medicine to those in need a bad thing? All I see in the US are greedy f*cks, ignorant f*cks and fat f*cks. And what's the deal with only two political parties? Are people too stupid to pick between more? Do they just flip a coin and stick with that the rest of their lives?

    In case of Zombies/Aliens/New World Order find Ted Nugent for maximum Survival. Dude has a full blown armory in his basement. It's pretty awesome

    All Nugent is doing is exercising his free speech, & the Secret Service is doing their job by investigating Nugent's comments. I think his comments are being blown way out of proportion, however it's also think it's a waste of time to talk about conservative musicians & their 'controversial' remarks. Who cares about their remarks? Their musicians, not political scientists or lawyers, or foreign policy experts.

    Most political party lines are drawn early by influence from parents and relatives, I'll agree. The 2 party system doesn't work though, since issues are never black and white and solved only by voting partisan. The problem is no 3rd party can gain a base of support since they are overwhelmed by the 2 major parties. And most people in the U.S think that voting 3rd party is a waste of a vote. Given this mentality I don't know how we're ever gonna get out of the vicious cycle of dem, rep, dem, rep...

    Rednecks hate Obama because he's Democrat, most rednecks are hardcore Republicans. They dont hate him cause he's black, they hate him cause he's a Democrat. This Republican vs Democrat thing is why this country is in the state its in, if they'd vote for the person they think will be the best instead of voting on someone cause of their party, and if the politicians will vote on bills they think would help instead of voting for their party's bill and against the other party's bills, the country would be better.

    Pussification of America. It's only natural for an AMERICAN to exercise free speech. It's a right given to US by the gov't. Agree with him, disagree with him, he's Ted, doing what Ted does, exercising his right of free speech. I swear nobody can do anything anymore here in the U.S. without everyone getting offended. Fuckin' grow a pair. It's LIFE. Did we act like this when America and the rest of the world knew it was the top dog? Wonder what's next...

    I'm Republican. But mainly I'm conservative. If a candidate expresses my views i'm going to vote for them regardless of which party they are. And I don't know if you realize this but thats how politics work. It used to be for the good of the people, but folks let the government switch it to work for the good of their party.

    So we're investigating rants now? That's exactly what this was.... a rant about the election. This is just further proof that the Secret Service is a waste of money.

    I love Ted, and this is hilarious. I don't agree with him, but it's funny nonetheless, especially because the secret service actually thinks he's gonna do something. He's a rockstar; he's GONNA say some outrageous stuff.

There's ways to express your views though so that you don't look like a retard, making vague threats about wanting to shoot the president because he'll turn the country into Indonesia is not one of them.
    Um... Funny thing. It wasn't a threat. He said we needed to cut their heads off in November. That's saying we need to get rid of their power during the elections. He also stated that if Obama was reelected he'd either be dead or in jail. That's saying he'd rather be dead than have the country he loves be changed for the worst. The in jail comment probably refers to him getting thrown in jail for criticizing Obama and some democrats not taking kindly to it.

    Another example of the media making a big deal out of nothing. Walk into any bar in the U.S. and you will hear the same comments from the half the people in there.

    To Every One of you Liberal defenders...you make me sick. You preach nothing but tolerance and lthen spew out nothing but hate when someone disagrees. Hypocrites. Nugent has every right to express what true patriots are feeling. Who gives a Sh*t what fkn color the President is, that wasnt what the coment was about. Way to feed America more "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO" bullshit. And to you redneck haters, what makes you less racist than some one who hates another race? answer: NOTHING. Lowlives crawl back into the hole you were spawned in, then do us all a favor and dont crawl back out

    I laugh at anyone who believes that Obama is anything but a corporate backed puppet. The only difference between him and W is their political party and the kinds of BS they spew in order to gain support.

    The only views they "allow" are their own... The irony is that they preach tolerance and all that, well, until someone says something they disagree with... then their tolerance goes right out the window. I haven't met a liberal type that was any different though so I'm not telling you anything you didn't already know.

    Like the Secret Service can do anything. They are a little preoccupied with Columbian hookers right now. This is America... free speech is paramount. He made no direct threat to any individual. Its Ted for chrissakes, he knows what he can say and get away with. Now I see in the news that soldiers in Afghanistan posed for pictures with the corpses of insurgents, and we're supposed to be outraged? Are you effing kidding me? We should make posters out of them and put them up on billboards so those psycho-zealots see what will happen to them if they try anything. This supposed embarrassment over the killing of these idiots is ridiculous.

    Do all fire arm enthusiasts/fans behave like maniacs? Or is just people related to that NRA thing. ???

    omg yea totally Ted Nugent is like sooo right. I mean, communism is right around the corner, you tell'em, Ted. Obama totally hates America and it looks sooo much like Indonesia outside, everyday it gets worse! This man is like suuuuuch a patriot. Ted would be a great president, he has such good tolerance when it comes to others' differences! His guitar playing totally makes him like smart when talking about politics!
    Megadeth2011
    I didn't see any threat to Obama... and if you watch the video, he says he means it as in going to the polling place and voting. Don't you love how the media spins things? Plus, if they're going to investigate Nugent, maybe they should investigate the man who said "We have a murderer in the White House. He is an assassin. He killed my brother Qaddafi. You don't know Qaddafi! I can defend him." as well as "In a few days, people will rise up and kill their leaders. they have betrayed us." Both quotes said by Louis Farrakhan.

    Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c*** and no one really talked about it. Rush Limbaugh called a girl a slut and got total hell for it. Double standard? I think so.

    Hahaha I love you people calling rednecks racist and prejudice. YOUR IDIOTS. That makes you prejudice, you dumb a****s. I'm in the NRA. I'm Republican. I'm a gun lover. Wanna make something of it? I'm not racist I just hate Obama cause he's incompetent and takes credit for s**t he had nothing to do with. You people are the reason there's racism in America. You always want to throw out the race card even when its not racist. So are rednecks really that backwards? I buy American made goods when I can to support jobs in AMERICA, I drive an AMERICAN made pickup. What do you drive? And where are you supporting? Communist China usually? Awesome.

    Big whoop! He has his own political views just like everybody else. I hardly see this as news.

    It's funny becuase the ruling party makes little to no difference at all. Endorse middle class America and flip the bird to corporate America. Let them know who built the country.
