Nuge To Incur The Wrath Of The Secret Service?
His outrageous political stance may have landed him in hot water
Music-News.com reports that during an interview at a National Rifle Association convention, he raged, "We've got four Supreme Court justices who don't believe in the Constitution. Does everybody here know that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don't have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense? That sounds like a stoned hippie. That doesn't sound like a Supreme Court anything."
He then went on to say something more disturbing: "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.
"It's good people who bent over and let the enemy in. If the coyote's in your living room pissing on your couch, it's not the coyote's fault. It's your fault for not shooting him."
In the US it is illegal to threaten the life of the President and as a result Nugent is now being investigated by the Secret Service who say that they are conducting the "appropriate follow-up" given the nature of the threat.
Since the speech last weekend Nugent has responded to the accusations that he made a threat against the president to ABC.
"I spoke at the NRA and I will stand by my speech. It was 100 percent positive,” Nugent told the Dana Loesch radio show today. "It’s about we the people taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration and the communist czars he’s appointed.”
"See, I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally, and there are some power-abusing corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth to identify the violations of our government, particularly Eric Holder and the president and Tim Geithner, ad nauseum,” Nugent told Loesch.
"I have never in my life threatened anyone’s life. I’m incapable of threatening anyone’s life. Because I’m about positive change, my entire speech, all my articles,” he added.
