Ted Nugent Stumps for Mitt Romney at NRA Convention: “Chop their heads off in November” (VIDEO)
Right Wing Watch ^ | Josh Glasstetter

Posted on 04/17/2012 6:31:51 AM PDT by Beaten Valve

Washed up rocker and reality TV star Ted Nugent appeared at the NRA’s national convention in St. Louis. Nugent, a longtime NRA board member and regular presence at conventions, rallied the NRA faithful on Saturday to vote for Mitt Romney: “Your goal should be to get a couple thousand, per person who’s here, to vote for Mitt Romney in November.”

Nugent called President Obama a criminal and denounced his “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” Taking it a step further, he said that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” “If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done,” he continued.

Supreme Court justices also came under assault by Nugent, who claims that the court’s more liberal members have signed a declaration against Americans’ right to self-defense: “We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution. Does everyone here know that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense.” Nugent concluded with a call to cut off the heads of Democrats in November: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”

Calling those who refuse to support the most liberal governor in the history of the republic deranged is a tactic that has worked in the past, but is much less likely to do so now. And frankly, it's the mark of someone who probably isn't going to be around here much longer.

You can be a Romney Republican or you can be a conservative. You can't be both.

Looks like you've already chosen. Poorly.

I still love Uncle Ted. He’s doing what he feels he has to do, and if Romney becomes the nominee, so will a lot of other folks, such as Sarah Palin. etc. It won’t be pleasant, but it will happen.

But I have news for Ted...if he thinks Romney is going to ride into battle and cut anyone’s head off, he’s going to wait a long time. Willard says he isn’t about to attack Obama.

What a sorry candidate. No one who supports him will do so based on his record; all they’ll be able to do is point out that he isn’t Obama.

MB was worthless from the gitgo.

Don’t think Palin will ever endorse Mitt before the nomination. If afterwards is different.

One can’t do everything in their power to Bash Romney and then still claim to want Obama to be defeated. Those opposing positiions are not possible.

Liar.

Here's a statement that is accurate: You can't support a socialist like Mitt Romney and any longer credibly claim to oppose socialism.

Doesn't matter what you say, either. Your actions are speaking so loud I can't hear your words.

Soon. Very soon.

I think the moment we are all waiting for is if and when Sarah Palin endorses the evil, lying leftist.

Dick Cheney was close, but Sarah is the one who will really push the boat out.

What will our loss be if the Communist is re-elected (e.g., Fast and Furious)?

You are correct. And if one despises obama as much as some people despise Romney - it's motivation enough. I was all-in for Governor Perry from the day he announced. I thought he was the "perfect" candidate. Turns out he wasn't conservative enough around here and was viciously ripped apart. He was THE most qualified candidate and once he dropped out I knew we would end up where we are.

*****************

A false dichotomy. You are in error or you elect to lie. Much better authority here:

‘He did what was right in the eyes of the LORD and followed the ways of his father David, not turning aside to the right or to the left. (2 Chron. 34: 2)’

This election marks a parting of ways.

‘Get over it’, I believe is a favorite phrase of kapo-conservatives. I return it to you.

The governing edict from Mt. FResno is "No Romney! No way!"

It says nothing about any "nomination", which is getting to be pretty much a formality at this point anyway.

Ted Nugent, Bill Cosby, Jim DeMint, etc, etc, etc, all good men mislead by the "facts" presented to them. If any of them visited this forum regularly, their eyes would be opened.

My take is that Cosby is a lying, racist, leftist fraud.

Nugent and DeMint, on the other hand, seem to me to be at least as conservative and well-informed as the typical FReeper-in-good-standing.

I just keep in mind that if Newt had a chance then Ted probably would have endorsed him but it seems more of a priority to Ted just to get rid of the Communist-In-Chief Obama.

Sorry Ted, but you can't polish a turd. Willard is more of a squish in RKBA than either Bush or McCain were. Worse since Willard is the only one of them to have actually SIGNED a permanent AWB into law...

FYI, the Nuge is quite famous for abstaining from drug use.

He was right there in the middle of it all and just said no.

There is much else about his personal life that disqualifies him from being a hero, but Uncle Ted is no doper.

I don’t “support” Romney (I contributed to and voted for Newt), unless the alternative is directly or indirectly re-electing the most COMMUNISTIC, deliberately destructive president in the history of the republic. There are huge doubts about what Romney would do as president. There are NO doubts about Obama other than “my God, how much worse will it be this time?”. I readily admit to a raging case of ODS, which trumps any other xDS I might have. If despising Obama to the extent that I would take ANY other candidate over him gets me banned, that’s life. I ain’t gonna lie.

I suspect he know he doesn’t have a chance otherwise.


True, but why would we believe the words of a man who said he was a "Severe" conservative Governor of MA and he has always been Pro-Life?

Remember, this is the man who supported the Brady Bill and implemented his OWN "Assault Weapons" ban.

Oh, I don't know. There's still a sizable group of true believers out there who fully expect that Newt Gingrich will steamroll across the remaining primary states, emerge from Tampa as the Republican nominee, choose Sarah Palin as his running mate and deliver an electoral knockout to President Obama of the likes of which we haven't seen since Reagan beat Mondale in '84.

It's gonna happen, I tell ya'! As I'm posting this, Newt is renting out his donor list to fund this final blitzkrieg.

Oh, I remember. That was the reason I signed up to post-—to join the side of the Perry supporters who were getting so much fire.

Someone posted an article about all of the candidates, including the ones who are now gone, being put into a computer to see who could beat Obama. Perry came up the clear winner. I hope and pray he will run for national office again one day. Last I heard, he isn’t ruling it out, but it doesn’t help us now, unfortunately.

It has dawned on many on our side-—and still hasn’t hit some-—that there will only be two choices in November. The ONLY patriotic, reasonable, or compassionate choice is whoever is NOT Obama. You can vote for Romney, or vote against Obama, but any vote not for Romney will enhance the One’s chances at reelection. I’ve made up my mind. I voted for Newt, gave to Cain, but this is not even close to being a judgment call in my book.

Yes, it is a difficult situation. I should have said it a little differently but any way you look at it, we are going to have one of two men as our next president.

I very much fear a second Obama term where he will be able to govern as he pleases, free from the constraints of another election to face. This was conveyed in strinking terms in his whisper to Dmitry Medvedev when Obama thought he was off-mike.

Thus, I have no choice but to back Romney. Come what may, it will be a darned site better than an Obama second term.

His first term is Exhibit A. What more would you like him to do? He's already repealed DADT, made recess appointments while Congress was in session, openly tried to influence the Supreme Court decision on the biggest case of our lifetime, he's getting away with the Fast & Furious scandal, he got away with the Solyndra and other scandals. He's trying to start a race war. He lies before the American people on a daily basis with no one calling him out. The man knows no bounds. It's not that we are afraid of obama. It's that there appear to be no checks and balances or media oversight of anything he does. That is the scary part.

That's silly. Those of us who find it impossible to support Romney---most of us, anyway---understand that people like Levin and Palin have said all along that they will support the eventual nominee. They will be doing their jobs, and they have to make their own decisions according to their own consciences. Everyone does.

I don't include Cain in that group because he doesn't have the character or integrity (which I knew before) to support his candidate to the end. His words were, "At one point I endorsed Newt, okay?" as though it was a temporary whim. Rick Perry, on the other hand, will be with Newt all the way.

He has used more than weasle words in the past, he has supported laws that have increased taxes and or fees on gunowners, has supported the Brady bill, has supported “assault weapons” bans. He has never defined what the Second Amendment means to him, when a politician says he supports the Second Amendment most of us think he defines it the same way we do. He apparently doesn’t believe that the Second Amendment applies to ALL American citizens as he supported legislation that would hamper the rights of Mass. citizens, he may even believe it’s more of a states rights issue than an individual God given right. Most likely he has no strong opinion, just pandering to whatever group he’s talking to.

Well, abandon all principle out of fear then.

But I will not do that.

As Sam Adams would say:

"Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!"

Let me give it to you straight and with no varnish:

I fear a conservative movement that has totally abandoned all principle infinitely more than I fear a second Obama term.

We've survived evil, stupid politicians before. But we cannot survive an electorate with no principles. Especially that portion of the electorate that represents the only hope of ever putting this country back aright.
