Ted Nugent, the so-called rock star whose racist hate-fueled anti-Obama rants got so threatening before the election that it earned him a visit from the Secret Service, appears to have gone off the deep end after Obama’s win—if his Twitter feeds are any indication.
Nugent joined a chorus of angry white men, such as Donald Trump, so enraged by the president’s re-election that they had to go online and let the world see their feelings.
“Pimps whores & welfare brats & their soulless supporters hav a president to destroy Americ.” That was one of the first tweets by Nugent on the election, at 6:30 yesterday morning.
He was joined in his unhinged idiocy by Trump, who tweeted these winners yesterday:
“We can’t let this happen. We should march on Washington and stop this travesty. Our nation is totally divided!”
This this: “Lets fight like hell and stop this great and disgusting injustice! The world is laughing at us.”
And this: “This election is a total sham and a travesty. We are not a democracy! ”
At 7:30 am yesterday, Nugent wrote: “What subhuman varmint believes others must pay for their obesity booze cellphones birthcontrol abortions & live”
But he wasn’t done yet. This is what he said at 7:40 am: “I cry tears of blood for The Last Best Place & the warriors who died for this tragedy”
This is the same guy who penned some nonsense in a July column in the right-wing Washington Times perhaps it would have been better if the South had won the Civil War.
“Chief Justice Roberts squandered the opportunity to restore judicial, financial and legislative sanity to a government that by any sane person’s standards is insane and addicted to centralized federal control of our lives,” Nugent wrote.
“Because our legislative, judicial and executive branches of government hold the 10th Amendment in contempt, I’m beginning to wonder if it would have been best had the South won the Civil War. Our Founding Fathers’ concept of limited government is dead.”
Earlier in the year in a rant about politics, Nugent implied that he might want to try to kill the president, which brought him a visit from the Secret Service.
