Aging rock star and NRA board member Ted Nugent has taken his typical extremist rhetoric up a notch calling President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” in a recent interview at a hunting and outdoor trade show in Las Vegas.
“I have obviously failed to galvanize and prod, if not shame enough Americans to be ever vigilant not to let a Chicago communist-raised, communist-educated, communist-nurtured subhuman mongrel like the ACORN community organizer gangster Barack Hussein Obama to weasel his way into the top office of authority in the United States of America,” Nugent said in response to a question about the 2016 election in video from Guns.com and shared by Media Matters.
“I am heartbroken but I am not giving up,” he continued. “I think America will be America again when Barack Obama, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton, Dick Durbin, Michael Bloomberg and all of the liberal Democrats are in jail facing the just due punishment that their treasonous acts are clearly apparent.”
Acknowledging that many might consider the comment “inflammatory speech,” Nugent said, “I would call it inflammatory speech when it’s your job to protect Americans and you look into the television camera and say what difference does it make that I failed in my job to provide security and we have four dead Americans.”
“What difference does that make? he added. “Not to a chimpanzee or Hillary Clinton, I guess it doesn’t matter.”
Nugent didn’t spare the Republican party in his comments, saying that the GOP is “so busy adjusting their tie they wouldn’t know how to sell a blanket to a naked man in the blizzard.”
While he may not have “galvanized” enough Americans with his rhetoric to get Obama thrown out of office, Nugent’s message is appreciated by some. The Outdoor Channel recently inked an exclusive endorsement deal with Nugent.
“Ted Nugent symbolizes everything that is right in our industry and represents our viewers as an outspoken patriot, a skilled outdoorsman and a devoted family man; we are proud that he can be found exclusively on Outdoor Channel,” Jim Liberatore, President and CEO of Outdoor Channel, said in a statement. “His programs have a powerful, zealous fan base with unmatched engagement levels. And, under this agreement, we will join forces with Ted to become advocates for all enthusiasts who love and live in the outdoors.”
Nugent has repeatedly bashed Obama over the years, and made big headlines in 2012 when he said that he would either be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if Obama were re-elected. So far, neither prediction has come to fruition.
