In the great African safari of self-expression, Ted Nugent is the thick-skinned and audacious rhinoceros. The rocker, defender of gun rights and avid hunter fired a verbal muzzleloader at Democrats in Washington D.C. last weekend. His comments were specifically aimed at President Obama and his cabinet.
“If you don’t know that our country is wiping its ass with the Constitution, you’re living under a rock some place,” Nugent said, according to Politico.com. The Motor City Madman officially endorsed Mitt Romney last month.
“If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done,” Nugent said. “We’ll be a suburb of Indonesia next year. Our president, attorney general, our vice president, Hillary Clinton — they’re criminals, they’re criminals.”
The comments came during an NRA Convention in St. Louis, Mo. During his speech (part of which can be viewed below) he encouraged those in attendance to get hundreds if not thousands of people to vote for Romney in November, adding “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
“Vile” and “evil” were words he used to describe the administration before reminding attendees and anyone listening that this country was founded on its decision to defy royalty, not to compromise with the king. “We are patriots, we are ‘Braveheart.’ We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
