Video: Ted Nugent Threatens To Assassinate President Obama

It’s no secret that Ted Nugent supports republican candidates for president, and also that he wants to be allowed to own all the guns. But while speaking at a recent NRA event, he went a bit far in terms of violent rhetoric. And by “a bit far,” I mean “threatened to shoot the president in the head if he doesn’t like the outcome of the election.”

He was pretty clear about it, too. When discussing the upcoming election (and how much President Obama hates the U.S. constitution), Nugent said this:

If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.

Now, what could that possibly be interpreted to mean? I guess the Nuge could have a nervous breakdown and end up dead or in jail that way, but I’m pretty sure he was talking about killing the president. And he wonders why some liberals don’t think people shouldn’t be allowed to have hand guns.

I don’t know the ins and outs of the secret service, but I’m assuming they take threats like this seriously, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Ted Nugent was put on some sort of watch list for this. It also seems somewhat hypocritical for him to talk about how much he loves the constitution and American democracy, and then threaten violence if people don’t vote for who he wants them to vote for. I guess Nugent land operates based on different logic than the rest of the world.

    • http://www.facebook.com/carolann.booher Carol Ann Hunigan Booher

      arms not assault automatic weapons designed for military and he never said the first word about taking them away in fact he said he was NOT taking them away ,just wanted like any person with half a BRAIN would want some control.. after all you can have all the guns you want but someone can get YOU in that movie theater….there is nothing wrong with control to keep the idiots from getting guns and anyone who is against control i figure is one of he idiots who DONT NEED THEM

    Just to clarify for Ted. He was speaking of what will happen when Obama passes a ban on guns and they come to Teds farm to collect them. If America wants to see a civil war try banning guns, you will get one.

    It was the GOP that voted down the “jobs for vets act” I would not think the secret service will let him go to the state of the uio. I fear for the presidents life.
