Ted Nugent: Leading The ChargePosted: January 22, 2013
Rocker-turned-gun rights provocateur Ted Nugent is willing to say just about anything to attack President Barack Obama and his administration for what he believes is an imminent effort by the government to snatch up guns. During a recent interview Nugent again raised the bar, invoking a Revolutionary war milestone to suggest that he and his “buddies” were prepared to fight such an effort at all costs.
“I’m part of a very great experiment in self-government where we the people determine our own pursuit of happiness and our own individual freedom and liberty, not to be confused with the Barack Obama gang who believes in we the sheeple and actually is attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George that we escaped from in 1776,” Nugent said in a recent interview with Guns.com.”And if you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies.”
Nugent appears to be referring to the beginning of the Revolutionary war, when colonial and British troops assembled at the North Bridge in Concord, Mass. in 1775 broke a standoff when one soldier opened fire. While it’s still unclear which side fired the first shot, it was later immortalized by poet Ralph Waldo Emerson, who suggested that “the shot heard ’round the world” was fired by an American.
Yeahyeah, suresure, Nuge. Show us how it’s done, Nuge. Remember that this Brave Patriot™ is the same guy who urinated and defecated in his own clothing for several weeks to dodge the Vietnam draft. A coward then, and a coward now.
According to poster jmowreader at Democratic Underground:
And the “evil, dangerous” Obama has a shitload of guys around him who, unlike Ted, were trained in combat skills. And a copy of the US Code, Title 18, Section 871 (threatening the president or president-elect) that says if you do what Ted did you get fined a lot of money, thrown in prison for five years or both, and it’s a Class D felony. So as a Federal felon Ted wouldn’t be able to so much as touch a gun or bow.
So yeah, Ted, go ahead and threaten the president some more and a bunch of government agents will be by to take away all your guns. But it won’t be because of sheeple or tyranny or whatever else you pulled out your ass: it’ll be because you proved yourself unfit to own guns.
So, Nuge: shut the fuck up. Better yet, Nuge: don’t. Keep running your mouth, mmmmmkay? They’ll have you fitted for an orange jumpsuit before you know it. And you can “fill” it any way you want.
“Pants-Crap Fever,” indeed.
