Ted Nugent: President Obama is a 'monster in the White House'

Ted Nugent scheduled interviews this week to talk about his new live CD and DVD set, but politics naturally entered the discussion as a partial government shutdown moves through a second week.

The 65-year-old Michigan rocker and staunch firearms and hunting advocate characteristically made no secret about where he stands, citing a recent piece he wrote for a conservative website entitled “Make my Day, Shut it Down.”

“The government is so out of control. It is so bloated and infested with fraud and deceit and corruption and abuse of power,” he said Monday. “The American government today will go down and the American people, it breaks my heart to say … will go down as the dumbest, most unappreciative society in the history of humankind.” READ FULL STORY

Surprise! Ted Nugent has lots of opinions about the state of American race relations

The outspoken firebrand/victim of feline-born illness Ted Nugent showed up on Nick Cannon’s podcast yesterday and offered his reaction to the outcry following the George Zimmerman verdict.

Among the things Nugent put forth was a dog-based analogy on how he thinks racial profiling should be implemented:

“I think when you use the word profile, if a Dalmatian has been biting the children in the neighborhood, I think we’re going to look for a black and white dog,” the rocker and NRA board member posited. He strengthened that airtight logic with a personal anecdote: “We played the Milwaukee state fair a couple years ago and these black mobs were just attacking white folks coming out of the fair. And over and over again I watch the news and here’s a rape and here’s a burglary and here’s a murder in Chicago. Twenty-nine shot. Twenty-nine blacks shot by 29 blacks. At some point you got to be afraid of black and white dogs if the Dalmatian’s doing the biting.”

Ted Nugent gets special invite to Obama's State of the Union

A Republican congressman says he’s invited rocker Ted Nugent, who has referred to President Barack Obama’s administration as “evil, America-hating,” to the State of the Union address.

Rep. Steve Stockman of Texas said Monday on his website that Nugent will be his guest for the president’s speech Tuesday night. Stockman has talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals.

In a speech to the National Rifle Association during the 2012 campaign, Nugent said that if Obama were re-elected, the longtime gun-control opponent would either be “dead or in jail.”

Nugent’s remarks led to meetings with representatives of the Secret Service.

Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez said another guest would be Gabino Sanchez of South Carolina. Gutierrez described Sanchez as a husband, father and an illegal immigrant fighting deportation.

Ted Nugent calls Obama 'an evil, dangerous man who hates America'

Ted Nugent is at it again.

The bear-killing rocker is once again speaking out against President Obama via a recent interview with (wait for it) Guns.com, and his language is as colorful as ever. Nugent, who had to meet with the Secret Service last year after he basically threatened to harm Obama, is now accusing the second-term president of being a communist sympathizer, among other things.

So many other things: “He is an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom, and we need to fix this as soon as possible,” Nugent said while at a gun trade show in Las Vegas.

Much of Nugent’s concern stems from the president’s recent push for tighter gun laws, though, really, Nugent can find concern almost anywhere.

“I’m part of a very great experiment in self-government where we the people determine our own pursuit of happiness and our own individual freedom and liberty, not to be confused with the Barack Obama gang who believes in we the sheeple and actually is attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776,” the musician said. “If you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies,” he added, because why not.

Army cancels Ted Nugent concert after Obama comments

The Secret Service may be cool with Ted Nugent, but Fort Knox sure isn’t. According to CNN, the Kentucky military base canceled the rocker’s booking after the “Motor City Madman” dismissed President Barack Obama’s presidency as a “vile, evil, America-hating administration” last weekend and issuing the potential threat, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Commanders at Fort Knox posted the announcement on the base’s Facebook page, writing, “After learning of opening act Ted Nugent’s recent public comments about the president of the United States, Fort Knox leadership decided to cancel his performance on the installation.” Co-headliners REO Speedwagon and Styx are still on the bill and had not made any announcements about the situation at time of press.

The Secret Service conducted an investigation into Nugent’s remarks and determined he was not a threat.

Ted Nugent's meeting with the Secret Service about Obama 'threats of violence' -- don't worry guys, they're cool now

After a tense period of uncertainty, rock ‘n’ roll pundit Ted Nugent has finally cleared the air with the United States Secret Service.

The Nuge got in hot water last weekend when he made threat-ish remarks at an NRA meeting in St. Louis, including, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

His tirade perked Secret Service ears, but the two parties have reconciled after convening in Oklahoma yesterday.

“The issue has been resolved,” agency spokesman Brian Leary said in a statement. “The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action.”

The rocker expounded on the matter on his website, where he wrote:

Secret Service to 'conduct an appropriate follow-up' on Ted Nugent's inflammatory remarks

Someone’s back on the radio yelling things like “I’m like Mother Teresa with a guitar,” and his name rhymes with Ned Tugent.

Continuing his history of courting political controversy, Ted Nugent is once again railing against President Obama’s “vile, evil, America-hating administration” — and the Secret Service is taking notice.

The “Cat Scratch Fever” rocker showed up at an NRA rally this past weekend and spouted off a winding anti-Obama rant, culminating in the declaration, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
