Ted Nugent didn’t name any one particular news outlet when he took to Twitter today to decry the “soulless, lying media,” but we’ll just bet his tweet has something to do with a piece in the Huffington Post today called, “Cowardly Ted Nugent Threatened the President Again.”
Sounds serious. So, what was the threat, exactly? According to writer Bob Cesca, Nugent threatened to assassinate President Obama in this portion of remarks given at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show in Las Vegas last weekend:
The president of the United States goes to the Vietnam Memorial Wall and pretends to honor 58,000 American heroes who died fighting communism and then he hires, appoints and associates with communists. He pretends to pay honor to men who died fighting communism, and then he hangs out with, hires and appoints communists. He is an evil dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom. And we need to fix this as soon as possible.
Did you catch that? What else could “fix this as soon as possible” mean if not assassination?
The Nuge denied that he’d threatened anyone, but that doesn’t mean a killing spree isn’t on the agenda.
