Hey, Ted, I gotta better idea. Why don’t we just lock you up for making terrorist threats and then you’ll be safe?
“Ted Nugent compared multiple groups he opposes to “rabid coyotes” on Friday, adding that you “keep your gun handy” to shoot them on sight.
Nugent, a musician and National Rifle Association board member, made the remarks during a seemingly casual — yet fiery — interview with InfoWars host Alex Jones. During the interview, Jones — a right-wing conspiracy theorist — said he wanted to know why liberals hate America and “love communism.”
“Don’t ask why,” Nugent said. “Just know that evil, dishonesty and scam artists have always been around and that right now they’re liberal, they’re Democrat, they’re RINOs, they’re Hollywood, they’re fake news, they’re media, they’re academia, and they’re half of our government, at least.”
“So come to that realization,” he continued. “There are rabid coyotes running around, you don’t wait till you see one to go get your gun, keep your gun handy. And every time you see one, shoot one.”
If you want to hear it yourself, The Young Turks (sorry) have the audio at 5:10 in the clip below.
Too bad Ted didn’t say this on Facebook or Twitter, someone might have done something about it.
As it is he can go on a public forum and encourage the nutjobs who listen to him to shoot people with impunity.
Ain’t freedumb grand?
