Secret Service Investigating ex-Rocker Ted Nugent for Terrorist Remarks against the President
Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, April 18, 2012
Ex-rocker Ted Nugent made some violent, extremely vitriolic and blatantly ignorant remarks at at the National Rifle Association‘s 2012 Annual Meetings in St. Louis on April 14, 2012. He was speaking to Cam Edwards and took questions from NRA members.
Specifically, the most virulent remark he made concerning the security of the leader of the free world was that ”If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
The Secret Service takes all such threats against the president‘s life seriously, and investigates them all, because at their heart, they are terrorist threats.
It is a violation of federal law to threaten the president.
Specifically, 18 USC § 871 – “Threats against President and successors to the Presidency” – addresses that crime.
Popularly known as “The Motor City Madman,” it is also well documented that Mr. Nugent has access to, and has used high explosives and owns a veritable arsenal of firearms.
Mr. Nugent’s diatribe in the video that follows is 25:30 in length, and it’s worth listening to every minute of it. The visual portion is worthless, so the video can run in the background while you do something else while listening to his extremist ravings.
Naturally, one would presume that because Mr. Nugent mentions “the Constitution,” “Christianity,” “guns,” “rights,” “heroes,” “veterans,” “law enforcement,” and other catch phrases, that what he has to say afterward is good, right, just, accurate and correct.
However, it is not.
It is not any more correct than if Louis Farrakhan were to mention mother, apple pie, or similar things when he delivered his vitriolic, venomous extremist diatribes.
