You may disagree with Ted Nugent‘s political beliefs and God knows I do, but that does not mean he should be censored in any way. At a NRA (National Rifle Association) event Nugent made the following comments…
“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”
“vile, evil America-hating administration” (referring to the Obama Administration)
“We are patriots, we are brave hearts… We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their (Pres Obama, Hilary Clinton, and Eric Holder) heads off in November…”
Some have said that Nugent’s comments were threats being made to the president, I don’t know about that. When I first heard about the comments I will admit I was like WTH is he talking about chopping heads off??? Then I decided to look up the video and listen to the comments on my own and come to my own conclusion.
Ted Nugent Has the Right to Say What He Said…
I can see how people could misconstrued Nugent’s comments but I read it as a man who simply hates President Obama and wants to see a change in government. When he says, “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November…”. He does not ACTUALLY mean killing anyone, he is referring to electing a new Executive gov’t in November.
Don’t get me wrong the language is strong and hateful but the outcry is a little bit over the top. The Liberal media has to be careful as I can’t recall much of a defense of Dubya while entertainers took their shots.
What I will say is that Mitt Romney should distance himself from Nugent, like Obama had to distance himself from Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan in 2008. There is just no room for a presidential candidate to allow a “supporter” to speak like that on his behalf.
But you know what, judge for yourself…
Ted Nugent was visited by Secret Service Agents concerning his comments:
“The issue has been resolved” and the agency “does not anticipate any further action,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told the Washington Post.
If there is something to be said, “It’s On Broadway” to step up and say it!!
