Quote of the Day

[Content Note: Violence; misogynistic slurs.]

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year."—Former rock star and current conservative fuckbag Ted Nugent, stumping for Mitt Romney at the NRA convention.

By any reasonable definition, Ted Nugent just implied he wants to assassinate the President. Why the fuck is he not in jail?

This is not the first time Ted Nugent has used violent rhetoric in association with Democratic figures. Here he is in 2007 in front of a cheering crowd telling "piece of shit" Barack Obama to "suck on" his machine gun and "worthless bitch" Hillary Clinton to "ride on" it.

[Holds up machine gun onstage] Suck on this one time, ya putz! [cheers and applause] I was in Chicago last week—I was in Chicago last week: "Hey, Obama, you might want to suck on one of these, ya punk!" [holds up gun; cheers and applause] You don't get it—Obama he's a piece of shit and I told him to suck on my machine gun! Let's hear it for him! [cheers] And then I was in New York. I said—I said, "Hey, Hillary, you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, ya worthless bitch!" [cheers and applause]
Etc. There's more, as he goes after Barbara Boxer, who he calls a "worthless whore," before shouting FREEDOM! You get the gist.

He is the grossest—just a hateful, vile, careless, violence-inciting dirtbag of colossal proportions.

And he's hugely popular.
