Skip to comments.Ted Nugent Implies He'll Kill Obama: Secret Service Looking Into Explosive Comments
Posted on 04/17/2012 11:18:27 AM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
Calls are mounting for Republicans and specifiaclly, Mitt Romney, to denounce right-winged rocker Ted Nugent's suggestion that he'd kill President Obama as the Secret Service says they're looking into the matter.
"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent told the NRA's annual convention in St. Louis over the weekend, Right Wing Watch reported. Nugent, an outspoken gun rights advocate, is an NRA board member and surrogate for likely Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Nugent spoke at the convention to push NRA members to persuade others to vote for Romney.
A Secret Service spokesman said agents are aware of Nugent's comments "and we'll conduct an appropriate follow up," New York magazine reported.

He wasn’t suggesting he would kill Obama, he was suggesting Obama would kill him.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be dead or in jail by this time next year,”
Isn’t he implying that Obama would kill or imprison HIM?
Nugent needs to join the NBPP to shield himself from scrutiny or investigation. Maybe black face would do the trick. He didn’t make a threat to the president. Perhaps he meant he would commit suicide or run naked through the streets and get arrested. Nugent is guilty of being white and speaking his mind. Both are offenses in 0bammy world.
Sounds like he’s more afraid of what Obama might do to him.
Exactly how I took it...lots of conservatives believe Zero would kill them; given the opportunity. What did Ayers say..? 25 million?
The only one I heard threaten black leaders was Farrakhan.
Ted said no such thing and the Obama administration is simply fabricating Ted’s words so that they will have an excuse to put Ted Nugent and other great American Patriots in Democrat run Prison Detention camps.
“A Secret Service spokesman said agents are aware of Nugent’s comments “and we’ll conduct an appropriate follow up,” New York magazine reported.”
....just as soon as they get off Administrative Leave.
Nugent implying that he would kill Obama is not the only controversial statement he made at the NRA convention.
he did?? wasn’t there a rapper name Common that said he wanted to burn George Bush, then was invited to obama’s WH??
they’ll be over as soon as they find their pants, Ted...
Maybe Ted can just give the agents a free pass to the Bunny Ranch.
Yes though people may be taking to mean that perhaps
Ted meant he’d be in jail for attempted assassination—even
though Ted AFAIK never did come out and say that. I took it as he’d either be dead, or locked up in jail simply for
having heretical (to the Left) views.
You are correct. My feeble brain didn’t interpret his remarks correctly. Nugent should call a news conference and clarify his remarks and biatch slap the media.
I could easily vote for Ted.
His comments could be interpreted in different ways. I don’t recall this outrage over the many disrespectful and threatening comments Libs made over Bush (including that play about assassinating him). Seems that anything the Dims get upset over should be rewritten to change names and political parties to the exact opposite to see if their outrage remains.
I guess the SS will investigate him between hooker parties.
They'll look into it right after the finish looking into the Black Panthers bounty on George Zimmerman's head.......right?
