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?”

Buy time for subsequent pushback.

It's not "buying time." It's political suicide.

John Judas McCain was a bridge too far. Mitt Romney is the plunge into the political abyss.

“That will depend on how R2 works out.”

Of course, but at least there’s doubt. Is there any doubt about Obama’s intentions?

Be amazed all you want. There is no rationale you can come up with that makes Obama’s re-election the preferable option to me.

And there's no way that trading one socialist for another, just because he has an R by his name, is a preferable, or even possible, option for me.

Let's keep this real straight, for the record: I don't support socialists.

But you will. Because you don't have the courage of conviction, or the vision, to do anything else.

It's sad.

A people who have abandoned their allegiance to God, to self-evident truth, to the principles that make the rule of law, and even civilization itself, possible, are ripe for exactly the same sort of destruction that occurred in the last century in Germany and Russia. Go ahead, burn up your most precious inheritance on the altar of perceived political expediency. Just don’t whine when you’re destroyed. And don’t expect those of us who are determined to maintain the old allegiances to like it, or to thank you.

John Judas McCain was a bridge too far. Mitt Romney is the plunge into the political abyss.

IMO, Dubya's big spending "compassionate conservatism" was a bridge too far. So I sat out '04. But I also voted for Ross Perot, much to my subsequent regret. I used to read this site before the '08 election, and a Freeper at that time repeatedly posted a comprehensive dossier revealing Obama's murky background, corrupt connections, and pro-death votes. Even his citizenship is questionable. So I voted against him, with visions of McCain's hand reaching across the aisle to Ted Kennedy dancing through my head.

The choices usually stink.

Keep that attitude up, and you'll be shown the door here too.

Can't believe they haven't banned me yet - I've been told I have no "moral compass", that I just don't get it, that I have no principles, and that I'm not a true conservative - all because I WILL vote for whoever is running against the Kenyan, don't care at all who it is. Nobody alive on the face of the earth is as destructive and poison to our cherised liberties and ways of life in modern America as is the POS PresBO.

Good luck...FUBO

Dont let it get to you some people argue on emotion, its usually libtards rather than reason, facts, and logic. We all know that Romney isnt the best pick, but he is better than Obama, period. With a conservative congress he can be held to account. People can claim they speak for god and you will pay etc and its quite annoying and tiresome as God is the only judge.
Obama is a marxist muslim who has thrown Israel under the bus more than once. We all know what that means. People can call me names, ban me etc, but if our only two choices are romney and zero. The logical choice is clear.

My take on Bill Cosby is that he catches flak from much of the black population for his stance on integrity, self reliance, and equality. He has no time or patience for "black reparations". He frequently tells the black youth to quit the hand-out routine and making the same mistakes that dead beat parents do. He's one of the good guys, but not perfect. But all three of the men I listed and many others have a habit of "trusting without verifying". They take another man's word without consideration of the propensity the other man has for lying. Romney told Nugent that he wouldn't be a gun grabber in office. Nugent believes him. I do not. The difference between Nugent and I is that I have watched Romney talking out of both sides of his mouth since his 2008 election bid. I know he is liar and a flip-flopper. He has zero conviction and little integrity. If Nugent spent the time and energy to do the research, I'm confident he would come to the same conclusion I have -- the same conclusion the majority of this board has.

Just trying to warn you. Newt is in recoup my losses mode from here to the convention. His campaign will only be about trying to recoup his own cash he has sunk into his campaign, everybody else’s he is not worried about. I do not think nice people, like yourself and others, should be duped into supporting this guy anymore. I have read other people here who seem willing to keep writing checks to Newt for him to fight on. He is not fighting on. He will take your money and put it in his pocket. Unless you are OK with paying for Callista’s book tour, the campaign is even paying for guy a in an elephant suit for her, keep your money, and efforts.

Nugent was a hero to a lot of people around here, surely you don’t deny that.

What cost him the hero status was not drugging or banging young checks but coming out for Romney.

It’s a strange world.

Those who don’t vote don’t deserve to live here (although I assume you’re not in that group). Sure, if enough people wrote in the SAME non-candidate, that non-candidate could win. But they’re not going to do that...odds of that happening are 0%, based on the in-fighting for various favorite sons (and daughters) in the previous months seen here on FR (and still continuing, to some degree). If you’re in the camp that believes we’d actually be better off with Obama than with Romney...I’ve heard the arguments, I just don’t buy them.

Well, he can try. But I'm an American. I do shoot back.

One last caution for you before I clear out of here for the day, from a Brit who learned the lessons of history:

"Still, if you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not so costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance for survival. There may be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no chance of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves."

-- Winston Churchill

Before endorsing him, Nugent demanded that Romney pledge there would be no new gun laws or restrictions on Second Amendment rights in his administration. Romney obliged. Nugent also warned Romney about the “out of control” U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.

Isn't that cute? Nugent actually thought Romney would live up to his pledge.

Seriously, how stupid are these people? When has Romney ever kept his word on something?

Romney’s my last choice, except for Obama (I don’t consider writing in a non-candidate in the general election a viable choice). Based on an intent to destroy the country and the ability to execute on said intentions, he’s not in the same universe as Obama. Have a good one.
