Ted Nugent is Still Threatening to Shoot People

Here’s Nugent on the Cam Edwards radio show yesterday (Edwards is another member of the conservative entertainment complex):

That’s why I said almost a year ago, Cam, and people recoiled in horror. And I know it caught a lot of my friends off guard, when I said if this America-hater, if this freedom-hater, if this enemy of America becomes the president again I’ll either be dead or in jail. And remember when I was on the stage with you and some people chuckled?


NUGENT: So we find humor in a disastrous statement from a guy who is on the frontlines, who has been in the frontlines of the war against gun ownership for at least forty-plus years. So it’s funny that I might be dead or in jail. And that is so indicative of how callous and disconnected some are, because you are talking about arbitrary, punitive, capricious draconian felonies.


But when I kick the door down to the enemy’s camp, would you help me shoot somebody? Just help me clear the room. And again, that’s a metaphor ladies and gentleman, I’m not recommending shooting anybody. It’s a metaphor of how to counterpunch the enemy if someone is willing to be on the frontline.

Okay, so it’s a metaphor? But why are all of Nugent’s metaphors about shooting people — clearing a room with firearms, in this case? You’d think if Nugent was serious about making a case against new gun control laws as method of preventing more gun massacres he’d stop making gun massacre metaphors that involve Nugent as the shooter. Smart guy.
