: Ted Nugent invited to State of the Union address by lawmaker who threatened to impeach Obama
Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas has invited Ted Nugent to attend President Obama's State of the Union Address on Tuesday. Stockman is notorious for calling for the impeachment of Obama because of his proposed gun safety regulations. And Ted Nugent? He is infamous for his incendiary and threatening remarks about the president.
“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” said Stockman. “After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”
I wonder if Nugent will repeat what he said at the last NRA convention when he stated, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
"He also compared the Obama administration to coyotes who needed to be shot, and encouraged voters to “chop [Democrats'] heads off in November.”"
Those remarks got Nugent a visit from the Secret Service.
Following Obama’s re-election in November, Nugent Tweeted: "Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters have a president to destroy America."
However, although his recent rants have been more about gun control, his vitriol goes back years.
"At a concert on August 21, 2007, Nugent complained, "I think that Barack Hussein Obama should be put in jail. It is clear that Barack Hussein Obama is a communist. Mao Tse Tung lives and his name is Barack Hussein Obama. This country should be ashamed. I wanna throw up,” he said, adding “Obama, he’s a piece of shit. I told him to suck on my machine gun.”
So why exactly has Rep Stockman invited this guy to attend Obama's speech? Nugent wallows in hate and rage. The Secret Service better pat him down good before he's allowed into the House chamber.
