Given his disgusting history, Ted Nugent has had some pretty unreal things to say to liberals recently.
Ted Nugent has made countless violent threats against former President Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, and other Democrats.
In 2012, Nugent once said that if President Obama was reelected that he would “either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
In that same year he called Obama a “piece of shit,” a “subhuman mongrel” and said that Obama could “suck on his submachine gun.”
And that’s not all, either. In 2015 at the National Rifle Association’s annual meeting he talked about shooting Harry Reid. In 2016 he called for both Obama and Hillary to be hung. He even called Hillary a “worthless bitch” and said she should “ride one of these [guns] into the sunset.”
Surely, you’d think, that would be all.
Not even close.
Once he defended his frequent use of the N-word, saying he’s just a fun guy.
Another time, he praised a business for using the N-word, and using the phrase “2 [N-words] and a stolen truck – ‘We move your shit like it was our’s”
So today is the 242nd anniversary of The Shot Heard Round The World is it! Well well well looky looky here boogie…
And yet, he was still invited to the White House by Donald Trump.
Birds of a feather, eh?
But, after all of this, what he said recently is what’s really interesting.
What’s happening now:
In wake of the media exposing the Trump administration and the shooting of Steve Scalise in DC on the baseball field, Ted Nugent has called for the left to become more tolerant and less violent.
“I cannot and I will not and I encourage even my friends/enemies on the left in the Democrat and liberal world that we got to be more civil to each other,” Nugent stated. “The whole world is watching America where you have the God-given right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And we have to be more respectful to the other side.”
He went on to say, “I’m gonna take a deep breath, and I’m gonna back down. And if it gets fiery, if it gets hateful, I’m going away and I’m not gonna engage in that hateful rhetoric anymore.”
When addressing his hateful comments, though, he gave an incredibly weak reason for it, saying that it was all part of the energy surrounding his rock and roll.
“I’m not trying to make excuses, but when I made those wild ass comments on stage against then-Senator Hillary Clinton and then-Senator Barack Obama, I don’t know if you can grasp the degree of adrenaline and intensity and over-the-top animal spirit and attitude that I live on stage,” Nugent said.
He claims that since then he’s taken a “deep breath” and wants to focus more on his music. than making inflammatory statements.
“I will avoid anything that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence,” the musician claimed.
He also added that he never meant his comments about the machine gun literally, and he doesn’t want “anyone’s lips on my machine guns.”
Ted, the fact that you had to wait until a tragedy like this to come out and say that shows your true character.
