Ted Nugent's Outrageous Remarks at the NRA Conference: What the Videos Don't Show

Categories: Politics
While reporting our current feature on the 2012 NRA Conference, I happened to be walking past right when Ted Nugent made these remarks:



As you've probably heard, the Secret Service has arranged a meeting today with The Nuge in order to do "appropriate follow-up," but Nugent ain't concerned.


"The Secret Service are my buddies," he  told St. Louis-based conservative firebrand radio host Dana Loesch on Tuesday, adding that he trains with them and helps conduct federal marshal raids down in Texas. "So when you say 'Secret Service' all I can do is get a big grin on my face and realize that we'll either be shooting some taxpayer ammo at targets, or we'll be eating barbecue."

Nugent is an incendiary guy. His rhetorical skills far outshine those of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity. And he was on Saturday at the NRA convention to fire up the base, which he absolutely did -- maybe a little too much.

We couldn't find it anywhere online (the NRA has removed the Nugent interview both from YouTube and its own website), but at the very end of the segment, Nugent took a question from a bearded gentleman who said:
I joined the NRA many years ago realizing that I desperately want to keep this fight in the political arena. But do you realize the power that you have? That if you say the word, there will be very many of us behind you, in a heartbeat?
I was watching this guy's face. His expression was as serious as a heart attack.

"Boy, do I," Nugent responded. "On all fronts. Let me give you a little insight here: Keep your eyes peeled because I may need you soon. I'll leave it at that."

Of course, he then began to hype his charity work, so who knows what the interlocutor took away from such an ominously-coded exchange.

But the crowd loved Nuge. When he got up to leave, they all whooped and cheered for him, holding aloft their cell phones to snap a pic of Uncle Ted.

Again, his main goal was to convince wary members of NRA's rank-and-file to stop wasting time and rally behind Mitt Romney. But it might've been a Pyrrhic victory.  I think Jake Wagman said it best, writing on the Post-Dispatch's political blog today:

This time, [Nugent's] comments seems to have backfired. Nugent may have been trying to generate enthusiasm for Romney, but it seems that what he really accomplished is putting Romney in an awkward situation while providing fodder to critics. (MSNBC had the clip practically on a loop Wednesday.)

"Nugent is an incendiary guy. His rhetorical skills far outshine those of Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity" ....or Ed Scultz...or Bil Maher...or Keith Olbermann. But that won't let Nicholas Phillips prattle on.

this is the same coward who avoided the draft by sh**ing his pants. Why is that most RepubliKKKan leaders have cowardly avoided the draft but try to rally everyone else to fight for them. 

People Like GW, Cheaney Romney and the pants s**tter himself.

I certainly hope crazy uncle ted is in prison and taking it in the a by next this time next year. It would serve him right. 

President Obama is a wartime president just like President George W. Bush was and to oppose anything a wartime president wants to do to protect our great country makes you a traitor......... at least that's what the republicans used to say.

On October 3, 2001, I.A.P. News reported that according to Israel Radio (in Hebrew) Kol Yisrael an acrimonious argument erupted during the Israeli cabinet weekly session last week between Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and his foreign Minister Shimon Peres.  Peres  warned Sharon that refusing to heed incessant American requests for a cease-fire with the Palestinians would endanger Israeli interests and "turn the US against us.  "Sharon reportedly yelled at Peres, saying "don't worry about American pressure, we the Jewish people control America." "The Israelis control the policy in the congress and the senate." -- Senator Fullbright, Chair of Senate Foreign Relations Committee:  10/07/1973 on CBS' "Face the Nation". "I am aware how almost impossible it is in this country to carry out a foreign policy [in the Middle East] not approved by the Jews..... terrific control the Jews have over the news media and the barrage the Jews have built up on congressmen .... I am very much concerned over the fact that the Jewish influence here is completely dominating the scene and making it almost impossible to get congress to do anything they don't approve of. The Israeli embassy is practically dictating to the congress through influential Jewish people in the country"  -----Sec. of State John Foster Dulles  quoted on p.99 of Fallen Pillars by Donald Neff The long history of bipartisan Congressional support for Israel led former Secretary of State James Baker to call the Congress "The Little Knesset" after Israel's Knesset (parliament) in Jerusalem.    Congress's embarrassing and unpatriotic display of allegiance to a foreign country that is dependent on American largesse and support is the unknown scandal to the American people.  With the media's strong, biased and sympathetic portrayal of Israel while simultaneously denying any opposing view of Israel or human pictures and stories of the endless suffering of Palestinians, its no wonder that we the American people are so unaware of the true face of Israel.  Thus shockingly but not surprisingly only 4 % of the American people are aware of Israel's 34 year brutal military occupation of the Palestinian people.Only at times of war and threat upon the U.S. does our Senate ever exhibit the strong  bipartisanship support of America it regularly provides Israel.   Despite our current crisis in airline security, Congressional political bickering continued for weeks between Republicans and Democrats placing American lives at risk while foreign aid to Israel was quick and automatic (about $6 Billion), even at a time the Congress is telling us of budget deficits and lack of money for the unemployed American workers.  As an American I am outraged at the blind historical allegiance our Senators have provided Israel while they neglect many of our pressing domestic issues such as airline security, Social Security and Medicare Reform, Education Reform, Health Insurance for needy Americans, Money for Dilapidated Schools, and Prescription Coverage for our Elderly.  Our Congress operates on the premise that most Americans are disinterested in foreign policy thus they have a vacuum to provide Israel with blank checks and our latest F-16 fighter jets that Israel uses to kill Palestinian civilians.  They depend on our media to keep us uninformed and distracted with Sports, Harry Potter, and scandals.

Tea Baggers are hypnotized Kwans. Nugent is nothing more than another bought and paid for, blackmailed Gentile that's sold out his race and his people. Judas denied Christ. Nugent's denying Whites and Gentiles. Don't give a Nugent the time of day. He's a race traitor and a jewish hasbarat. Spreading misinformation for the juden so that they don't "expose" the dirty pictures that they have of him engaged in something illegal or immoral that will destroy the remainder of his has been career.

I only wish he were wearing a hijab and wielding a sword when he made that comment about "chopping their heads off in November."

Secret Service suburban pulls into Teds ranch.  6 agents get out. Ted greets them. 5 minutes later they are satisfied that he was speaking in Motor city madman tongue.  15 minutes later his fine wife is serving all of them chunks of beautifully marbled deer backstrap from the grill. When they are done they go out back of his barn and commence to exercising their 2nd amendment rights with Teds awesome arsenal of firepower.  Ted autographs a few service pistols, hook their kids up with some awesome Nuge gear, and they are off to the office.  If you think it went down any different than that you are sadly mistaken.  Lawmen love his ass. He is nuttier than a squirrel turd, but people love him.

Unlike Macho Man Ted Nugent, I have actually carried a rifle in defense of this country and all who call it home (Republican, Democrat and everyone in-between). 

Sure, he has a right to say all kinds of obnoxious things . . . and I have a right to say this:

The guy is a great guitar player . . . and colossal douchebag.

God Bless Ted Nugent! The United States needs millions and millions more just like him. Finally someone of public notority has the balls to stand up and say what millions of us are thinking. Let the pansy-ass ultra wacko anti-2nd amendment liberals whine and cry about this all they want. Their time has come and gone. Once we get rid of the Anti-Christ dog-eatin' son of a bitch America will once again be back on the path to greatness. Congress should give Ted the Medal of Freedom

It's really funny how four years ago anyone who said anything against the president was "un-american" and a "traitor", but now you're a bad american if you don't...

I don't see how anyone can take that as a physical threat - it's obvious he's referring to defeating Obama, but then again I'm rational

Kwans also seeing the jewish Nazis in Israhell shell innocent women in children in Palestine with white phosphorous.  Nugent is a hasbarat jew disinfo agent. That's why he's acceptable. If he wasn't one, they'd WACO him in a second.

He's a ranting chickenhawk like so many Republicans. What does anyone expect? Threatening the president of the United States is no joke, though. Just remember this the next time GOPers claim to love this country but sing the praises of a joker like Nugent.

Nugent is asking the question you didn’t which is “Is it good for the jews?” Nugent is a hasbarat. He’s a chickenhawk calling for war against Iran when he avoided the Vietnam draft by shitting and vomiting on himself. He’s a coward. He could speak up about the black crime and violence that destroyed Detroit but never mentions a word. Matter of fact, he’s completely abanddoned Detroit instead of using his position to challenge the status quo. To show his macho man status he blows up animals like the gutless douchebag he is instead of doing it as a means to feed himself. He’s an uneducated loudmouth who I wouldn’t trust to tell me the steps for pulling out my dick and taking a piss.

Give draft dodging Ted the Medal of Freedom? Why? Ted's a big-talking-doing-nothing-but-hiding-when-it-really-counted pussy. He had his chance and he crapped his pants. 

Just like all the other brave conservative heroes like Ronald Reagan, John Wayne, Rush Limbaugh, Dick Cheney and George W. Bush who couldn't be bothered to defend this great country when they were ask to.

Ted Nugent dodged the Vietnam draft by shitting his pants and spending a week in them. DRAFT DODGER! Nugent is also a self-admitted pedophile. PEDOPHILE! Oh, yes, we need millions more *just* like him.

Guess what you stupid psychotic fuck, there are also millions of people who DON'T think like you and your trailer trash role model. Guess what else? We're not going fucking anywhere. Every time I real some lunatic charlie bronson wannabe piece of pig shit like yourself I seriously hope that you are one of the really stupid ones who manages to shoot himself while being a tough gun toting motherfucker dipshit. At the same time I hope that you keep your arsenal away from your children if any children have the extreme misfortune to have a colossal fucking dipshit rube like yourself as a parent.

Oh, and not only is Ted Nugent a fucking ass clown idiot, his music sucks. Garbage specifically made for trailer trash mullet haired klan member meth heads.

If all he meant was electoral defeat, then what did Ted Nugent mean when he said that if Obama gets re-elected, he'll be dead or in jail shortly thereafter? What does he think will get him killed? What crime does he think he'll be convicted of?
