Rock legend Ted Nugent is firing back at reports the U.S. Secret Service is targeting him for a harshly critical speech of the Obama administration he delivered at the National Rifle Association over the weekend.
The longtime advocate for gun rights compared President Obama and the Democrats to an unwanted animal visiting someone’s home.
“It isn’t the enemy that ruined America,” he said, affirming his support for Republican presidential front-runner Mitt Romney.
“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.”
Nugent had said in his address that “if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
“If you can’t go home and get everybody in your lives to clean house in this vile, evil, America-hating administration, I don’t even know what you’re made of,” he said at the NRA.
Nugent’s words got even more descriptive at times, calling Obama a criminal and saying his administration is “wiping its a– with the Constitution.”
He also flayed four Supreme Court justices for what he says is their stance against Americans’ “right to keep and bear arms.”
He ended with a call to politically decapitate Democrats in November: “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?”
