From a few days ago at the NRA convention. You be the judge at 1:30:
To think that a human could think that humans don’t have a basic right to self defense, is so bizarre to me as to my brain can’t accept the information. If you want more of those kinds of evil anti-American people in the supreme court. Then don’t get involved and let Obama take office again. Because I’ll tell you this right now, If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.
Let me break this down:
Some ways Ted Nugent could wind up in jail if Barack Obama got re-elected:
- Breaking any number of random existing laws
- Breaking a new law which he thinks Obama will inevitably pass
- Attempting to kill Obama
Some ways Ted Nugent could die if Barack Obama got re-elected:
- Dying in an Obama assassination attempt
- Heart attack or any other random occurrence
By no means is that an all inclusive lists of possibilities, but seriously what an incredibly stupid thing for Ted Nugent to say. My thought is that Ted is probably an alright guy that didn’t mean any harm, and I appreciate his enthusiasm for guns and the 2nd Amendment but he should seriously STFU when it comes to politics. He should have known that using words like “dead” and “jail” in the same sentence as the president’s name is going to be twisted in the worst way possible unless he precisely explained himself (which he didn’t). We all know now he’s going to be interviewed about this a million times over the next few years, and he will basically just shrug it off and/or say some more stupid shit in typical Ted Nugent fashion. Maybe that’s his whole plan? Keep saying stupid things so he never fades into the background with all the other old rockers? Sounds like an inexpensive way to stay relevant.
The Secret service is apparently “looking into” the matter.
