Background from Right Wing Watch:
Nugent called President Obama a criminal and denounced his “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.” Taking it a step further, he said that “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” …Nugent concluded with a call to cut off the heads of Democrats in November: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
According to ThinkProgress, “The Secret Service, which investigates all threats against the President, confirmed to New York Magazine’s Daily Intel blog that they have in fact flagged Nugent’s comment” and will be conducting a follow up.
Thank goodness polite society has condemned Hillary Rosen for her remarks about Ann Romney. That’s so much more outrageous than Romney-endorser Nugent.
In the same rant, Nugent urged NRA conference attendees to find “a couple of thousand” people each to vote for Mitt Romney and said those who don’t are worthless.
But again, Hillary Rosen is just so goddamned awful. Right? </sarcasm>
