Quote of the Day: Ted Nugent Threatens Barack Obama

The washed-up rocker and Romney endorser says he'll be in jail or dead if the president is reelected.

Ted Nugent -- the proud gun-owner, poorly coiffed Michigander, and washed-up rocker -- has said some silly and offensive things in the past, and not just while performing "Cat Scratch Fever." In 2007, he said the following during a concert: "Obama, he's a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun. Hey Hillary [Clinton], you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless bitch."

Another loud-mouth nutcase Republican heard from.

Hey, Ted. Nobody cares. Your 15 minutes of fame were up long ago and you weren't all that great then. Go shoot some little animal. I'm sure it'll make you feel like more of a man.

I hate it when entertainers speak out, well not the progressive liberal ones like bill maher. As the known leaders of the progressive movement, it is their obligation to do so.

If he threatened Obama, then he could be facing some serious charges, and calling Hillary Clinton a not-so-nice name could also land this guy in some pretty hot water, I'm talking boiling point. The fact is, when somebody says something on TV or radio that isn't nice, it could come back and bite him.

Hopefully it will be the latter!

Many moons ago I was young and impressionable. I spent my hard-earned dollars on record albums (yes, it's been that long), even Ted Nugent's. I went to concerts all over the state. Spent money on movies.

Then one day it occurred to me that I was spending MY money making other people rich. Every time I see that stack of old record albums I'm reminded of all the money I literally gave away. I don't listen to the music anymore. The concerts and movies are but distant memories, but all those celebrities are living very well with the help of my money.

And then they have the nerve to come out in public and open their mouthes regarding politics, not giving a care in the world about how they might offend those who helped put them where they are.

I know longer support entertainers in any way, shape or form. No music, no movies, no sports, no stupid entertainment magazines. I don’t care if some skanky woman is leaving her equally stupid boyfriend. I refuse to waste my money on it. I will use it to invest in something that will benefit ME, rather than help support them in a lifestyle I’ll never come to know.

I only wish I had all that money back that I’d thrown away years ago, especially on that Ted Nugent record.

yeah yeah, kinda like we all listen to the NBP or farrakhan when he said yesterday that 'whitey has to change or its the end for them'. Just entertainer hype and drug addled big mouths. course the other entertainers who are open commies and their speech is appaling when it comes to conservatives, that's ok.

The difference (which obviously escapes you) is that Nugent called for the killing of the President, in and of itself, a criminal act. He also called for the killing of other elected (read Democrat) officials, also a Federal crime. Farrakhan has never called for the the killing of a President or other political leader.

It is one thing to vehemently disagree with a person's politics, even those of the President. I despised Bush, especially for Iraq, but I never wished someone would take him out. Neither did Farrakhan. THAT is the difference.

What's this got to do with anything. Did I mention Farrakhan? Did I say that was part of my dismissed "entertainment" package?

You made an "assumption" because you wanted to make an opposing point, but it only served to make you look stupid.

Farrakhan is a nutcase, too. I think most sane people realize that.

He didn't make a threat to anyone.

Quit f*cking whining.

Go arrest Farrakhan.

At least you're equating Nugent to Farrakhan, I agree.

Why should we arrest Farrakhan and not Nugent? I'm just hoping Nugent does what he promises and is either in jail or dead if Obama is elected again!

At least you ve learned your lessons well. Wisdom cannot be taught, it must be learned by oneself. You are fortunate that you ve done that.

I am easy to satisfy, I would be happy if the condition of whether Obama is re-elected or not removed from Nugent going to jail or dead.

Not buying into the idea of "celebrity" is a principle I live by. I do allow myself the luxury of entertainment I deem worthy though.

I just listened to the video clip and Ted Nugent threatened no one, I did get he felt threatened and understandably so.

Just yesterday I heard of Blackhawk Helicopters with military hanging out the doors with machine guns and it is said to only be a "routine training conducted by military personnel in cities across the country." Routine my arse, when was the last time we heard of anything like this to call it "routine"
