Political observers didn't know what to make out of the rants, which included such gems as "Goodluk America u just voted for economic & spiritual suicide. Soulless fools" following election results.
However, fans of "Uncle Ted" are well aware of his right leaning views and distaste for the current administration. Earlier this year at the NRA convention, Nugent publicly stated that "If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year."
Ted Nugent is a veteran of the music industry, having climbed to fame in the 1960s with The Amboy Dukes and later in the 1970s with his solo projects and non-stop rock hits such as "Cat Scratch Fever", "Free For All", and "Wango Tango." In the 1980s, Nugent began to express his conservative political views on stage, including high profile stunts to raise awareness for gun ownership rights and hunting.
Nugent's political rants continue to keep him on the radar, including attacks on fellow rockers, as he criticized Rage Against the Machine following singer Zach de la Rocha's onstage comments at the 2007 Coachella festival that the "current administration, should be hung and tried and shot."
After numerous appearances on conservative television and radio programs, Nugent has become a target for left leaning media outlets and continues to ruffle feathers. Recent headlines refer to Nugent's comments as a "Twitter Meltdown" but his fans know he speaks his mind and keeps it real, by pointing out facts that hold true to millions of blue-collar Americans.
Nugent recently summed up his views via his column, which included the following "If you voted for Mr. Obama, you are thunderously dumb and incredibly naive. Believe it. For your intentional ignorance, you will ultimately pay a heavy price that you are obviously too ignorant to understand. Your children and grandchildren will pay an even heavier burden. America will pay the heaviest burden. Thanks for nothing, numbskulls."
Nugent speaks his mind and holds his stand, with both the right and left hoping he is still alive and not in jail a year from now, so we can hear what the "Madman" has to say next.
