Nugent sparked a firestorm of controversy after he appeared at a St. Louis National Rifle Association conference and said that he would be “dead or in jail” if Obama won a second term. He also said that he hoped voters would “chop [Democrats] heads off in November.”
“Your goal should be to get a couple thousand, per person who’s here, to vote for Mitt Romney in November,” Nugent told an applauding audience of NRA members.
Nugent also sharply denounced President Obama, who he described as leading a “vile, evil America-hating administration” which is “wiping its ass with the Constitution.”
Nugent, who is a passionate advocate of Second Amendment rights, attacked the Supreme Court of the United States as well.
“We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who don’t believe in the Constitution,” said Nugent. “Does everyone here know that four of the Supreme Court justices not only determined you don’t have the right to keep and bear arms, four Supreme Court justices signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense.”
“That sounds like a stoned hippy,” said Nugent. “That sounds like an extremely intellectually vacuous punk.”
