Secret Service Investigates Ted Nugent Threat Against Obama at NRA Convention: VIDEO


The Secret Service is reportedly looking into remarks made by rocker Ted Nugent at the recent NRA convention:

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

After attacking liberal Supreme Court justices who Nugent alleges "signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense" Nugent added, about Democrats: "We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"

Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...

Said the Secret Service to NY Mag: "We are aware of it, and we'll conduct an appropriate follow up."

RWW adds that Romney sought Nugent's endorsement and agreed to his demands to win it.

  2. Did they order prostitutes first?

  3. Just goes to show what people actually know about the first ammendment. Threatening to kill someone is not "protected speech".

  4. Either dead or in jail...

    We all win.

  5. That could be interpreted as a veiled threat to Obama, but he may have meant that he'll just have to shoot someone because he'll be so mad--not necessarily Obama.

  6. If I get to chose, I'd like to see Nugent not only dead, but stuffed and put on display with a rifle inserted up his ass.

  7. Does it really matter WHO he was threatening to murder if he didn't get his way politically?

    It's unfortunate that during all his playing around with weapons and ordnance Nugent hasn't blown himself up yet. Hope springs eternal.

  8. Promises promises Ted. As we all know, like every chickenhawk Ted is a huge craven mess of a seditious coward. He'd never go after the transnational corps and lobbying groups like ALEC for corrupting our political sector. That would take integrity and yes, balls. Things the "Nuge" fears more than anything.

  9. Yeah, Scalia, Thomas, Alito and Roberts....all guilty of not understanding a living constitution.

    This guy is clearly a traitor to his country and has no respect for the President whom the people have elected.

    He's also seen too many Hollywood movies and not enough French ones.
    Any questions ? yeah, can you read ?

  10. Ah, Nugent, with his lust for young teen girls, a lust so powerful that he married one just so he could bone her before she was legal. What a guy!

  11. this is what we liberals/democrats/progressives have to deal with. an obstructionist opposition that is extreme AND crazy.

    remember this people, next time others try to make false equivalencies. there is not equal partisanship on both sides.

  12. "we'll be a suburb of indonesia next year."

    wtf this this guy talking about?! people like this are so ignorant and radical that it's insane. such trash.

  13. Tic for Tat... our own Hillary Rosen whipping boy? This guy is really offensive not only to women but to anyone still breathing.

  14. Ah, yes, the hierarchy of vague laws. Why would they even announce an investigation? Obviously, they don't take it too seriously. Ted should lay off the sauce.

  15. Reading these posts, please remember, if you look at the audience, there are people intently listing to his every word. He may not be the one pulling a trigger, but someone with even more wires loose than Ted will surely feel obliged to fulfill this nut cases orders.

    I just keep thinking of Sharon Angle and her "2nd Amendment Remedies" when talking about how to handle Harry Reid.

    And this is oxygen to the Cable News outlets.

  16. I would not take good ol' boy Nugent for granted he has been around a long time and he is ingrained in the NRA subculture. Out here in Kansas he's the next thing to the pope. And that is dangerous!

    Posted by: VDUFFORD | Apr 17, 2012 3:48:07 PM

  17. Who the F is Ted "who the hell cares" Nugent, anyway. I am old enough to have heard his "music?", which sukced. I vote for dead, because I don't want my tax dollars going to support this "has-been if he ever-was" jerk while in jail.

  18. Veterans of America hopefully would support an agreement signed by the White House and Vietnam in order to throw this draft dodger behind bars for four years in Hanoi ... FOR FOUR YEARS: 2012 - 2016. GO OBAMA !!!

  19. Hey Ted,

    Lean into the strike zone and take one for the team...just shoot yourself!

    Posted by: bowhuntr | Apr 17, 2012 4:04:10 PM

  20. It's really alarming to see the knuckledraggers in listening to him nodding 'sagely' in agreement to the crap that pours out this old has-been traitor's mouth! Listen to how many things he says which can be interpreted as threatening (to the President and others) and outright lies... and the idiots at the NRA convention actually LISTEN to him and take him seriously? What a f*cked up place this will be if sauce-addled morons like him ever get their way!

  21. 1) It's not clearly even a threat at all. There are a number of reasons why he could be in prison, and a number of reasons he could be dead.

    2) Even if interpreted as a ridiculously veiled threat, it's still vague and ambiguous, and doesn't constitute a "true threat" and cannot be punished.

    Like it or not, that's the law.

  22. "I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year."

    Well Ted, from your mouth to God's ear.

    Posted by: antb | Apr 17, 2012 4:55:14 PM

  23. Yep, that was pretty much a direct threat, but don't expect the Secret Service to do much "investigating". We all know what they are interested in.

  24. I thought Ted Nugent *IS* a stoned hippie????

    Posted by: Pup | Apr 18, 2012 6:55:07 AM

  25. Saddam Hussein made the same threats against the former President of the United States. Personally There's not a President past, present or future that I wouldn't take bullet for. I'm an American, Ted's not.
