I don’t even know what to say about what’s going on in Ukraine and Venezuela. Of course, it’s impossible to know what exactly is going on in Venezuela with the government shutting down the internet in major cities and sending out death squads who are firing indiscriminately into residential homes…
Really? You think Ted Nugent would actually support shooting people who don’t support his personal opinions? Never in my life have I wanted to take the life of another human being, no matter how ignorant or obtuse or myopic their opinion. Never.
And we wonder why America is so polarized.
I’ve never wanted to take the life of another human being, either, but might I remind you that Ted Nugent said in April of 2012 if President Obama was re-elected he would kill him or die trying?
His exact words:
If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year … We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.
He has also often said that if he hadn’t been a draft dodger and had actually gone to Vietnam, it would not have been to fight the Vietnamese, but to “kill all the hippies” who didn’t want to be there.
So, yes. I absolutely believe Ted Nugent would actually support shooting people who don’t support his personal opinions. He has said that is exactly what he believes should be done over and over again.
Everything he says publicly is specific to the purpose of fueling manufactured outrage and inciting violence against delusion-created enemies.
I have thus far only been able to find edited transcripts and videos of that quote, and would like context. I am the first to admit that Ted Nugent is inflammatory, but cannot believe that anyone would endorse wholesale murder over what boils down to a fundamental difference of opinion.
He does not speak for me.
In another post here on your blog, you advocate for a war on Christianity. I find this ironic and hypocritical.
