Ted Nugent Goes OFF on President Obama, Encourages Followers to "Chop Heads Off"

by at . Comments

The Secret Service is looking into comments made this weekend by extreme right-winger Ted Nugent.

During a gathering sponsored by the National Rife Association, the rocker - referring to the upcoming election - urged members of the organization help "chop their heads off in November" and added:

"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. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Referring to the current administration as "criminals," Nugent appeared to directly threaten Obama - which is a crime - by ranting:

"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."

Responded Andrea Saul, a spokeswoman for Mitt Romney, the candidate Nugent is backing: "Divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from. Mitt Romney believes everyone needs to be civil."

3 words...Freedom of Speech. Whether I agree or disagree, Ted has the right to say it and if everyone would just get down off their PC high horses and agree that it was a metaphor not a threat, there would be not problem.

It was a reference to the Film Braveheart starring Mel Gibson in which ''William Wallace, a commoner, unites the 13th Century Scots in their battle to overthrow English rule.'' (sort of like how Nugent, and millions of others, feels Americans need to throw off an oppressive government) You'd think the "Hollywood Gossip" would have figured that out, since Nugent mentioned Braveheart in his talk, but then that wouldn't fit the liberal slant to the story...

This whole thing is stupid. Really they are going to question him cause they think it was a threat? Any one with common sense would know that it wasn't a threat and that what he said was used as a comparision. Wake Up! Things just get too carried away these day.

So how did Mr.President George Bush Jr. Do so well that he deserved a second term?

"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." AMEN!!! That Nugent is a hoot. If he were entirely honest, he'd say that about all politicians cause they're all liars and cheats, or will be soon after they take office.

If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you are not a racist..better vote him out of office in 2012 to prove you are not an idiot!
