After Threatening the President's Life, Ted Nugent Rewarded with Ticket to the State of the Union

Source: People For The American Way - Rightwing Watch



Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman announced today that he is “excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber” during President Obama’s State of the Union, once again confirming Stockman’s position as one of the most far-right members of Congress.

Nugent in the past has threatened to kill President Obama, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and California Senators Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer.

“I was in Chicago and I said hey Obama, you might want to suck on one of these you punk; Obama, he’s a piece of shit, and I told him to suck on my machine gun,” Nugent screamed during a concert while brandishing two machine guns, “Then I was in New York and I said, ‘Hey Hillary you might want to ride one of these into the sunset you worthless bitch…. Then I was out in California and I thought, Barbara Boxer, she might want to suck on my machine gun, hey Dianne Feinstein ride one of these you worthless whore.”

Nugent at a National Rifle Association gathering said that if Obama and his “vile, evil America-hating administration” win re-election then “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Here's the nutcase who gave the out-of-state Mr. Pantscrap Fever a ticket over the actual constituents of his district :



A Houston Chronicle article reminds that "Stockman’s two years in Congress were marked by weirdness, such as an article in Guns & Ammo magazine that appeared under his byline in which he suggested the then-new Clinton administration raided the Branch Davidian compound in Waco on April 19, 1993, to justify a ban on assault weapons. Stockman said, in reports from the Associated Press in May 1995, that he stood by his article, which was published after the bombing on April 19, 1995 of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. A couple of weeks after he defended the article, he told the Associated Press that he regretted writing it, mostly for its timing.

On the day the federal building in Oklahoma City was bombed, just four months into Stockman's term, there was confusion over a fax sent to Stockman’s office. The FBI became involved. In a news conference in Beaumont in April 1995, Stockman identified the sender as a former Orange County, Texas, Republican chairwoman who had ties to the Michigan militia. The fax was sent to several members of Congress after reports of the bombing came over television. Stockman was the only member to alert the FBI.

I'm beginning to think we need a constitutional amendment banning all Texans from holding political office.

These bigots only hard the resolve of the opposition just as their attempts to disenfranchise the minority backfired. They only awaken the determination of the minorities to vote regardless if they had to stand in line for hours. These idiots are thankfully destroying the credibility of the GOP by revealing they are nothing more than a pack of "morans."

referring to a President and former First Lady, but if they were bona fide threats, this administration would not have let it "ride" (pun definitely intended).

21. Ironically, neither Stockman NOR Nugent were born in Texas.

THAT, my DU friends, explains a lot to this life-long Texan.

Both men were, according to what I find via google, born in Michigan.

You see, you can come to Texas and you can live in Texas, and you can put on your fake cowboy hat and try to make people think you are a Texan. But LIVING in Texas and being FROM Texas are two separate things down here.

And that, coincidentally, explains a lot of what is WRONG with Texas right now. Because you see in the 1980's when some idiots decided that they'd done enough damage to some of the other, mostly northern, states and wanted to find a new place to screw up - - - they moved to Texas.

Every state has good and bad. I realize that, and I make no comment about the good people of Michigan or any other state. But Texas has more than its fair share of those idiots who flocked here over the last several decades and have basically tried and succeeded in taking over.

Those of us who are actually FROM Texas, want our Texas back. And we are working hard down here to make that happen.

You could spot them a hundred yards away - pasty, doughy types with kids whose eyes were waaay too close together. They were always going on about how things were done "back home" and that we needed to change our ways.

I never became friends with a single one of them.

It's pretty telling that Stockman was so worried about his rights that he ran against Jack Brooks, the guy who nailed Ollie North for trying to suspend the constitution.

And let's not forget Stockman and Nugent's heroes, including Michigan's very own Terry Nichols:

22. Stockman apparently missed the "stupid party" memo

Two things happen tomorrow:

Either Nugent decides to pull a Joe Wilson and interrupts the SOTU speech, gets forcibly ejected and then runs to FOX News to bemoan how his free speech was restricted

-OR-

He manages to keep his trap shut but then runs off at the mouth afterwards and triples down on the crazy-ass talk thereby making it a PR nightmare for the Republican party.

I'm pretty sure that the Republican leadership has to be sweating bullets over the numerous ways this can become a disaster for them.

30. I remember when Cindy Sheehan was marched out of the SOTU for her tee shirt

That was under bush the lesser. Lynn Woolsey invited her and once seated she took off a jacket or something and the "guards", seeing an anti-war sentiment on her shirt, removed her.

Really ugly to think of nugent there but I couldn't disagree more with your broad condemnation of all Texans.

37. Sad if not insane

We used to put insane people like Ted Nugent in institutions. And we used to hold people accountable if they threatened the President of the United States. Just think back to GWB times.... They would drag you away if you wore the wrong t-shirt, or had the wrong bumper sticker on your car. Or corral you in a giant cage if you held a peaceful but noisy protest 3 blocks from the Republican National Convention, and no fucking telling what they would have done with you if you turned up at a protest with an assault rifle slung over your shoulder. This society is fucked. Period.

49. With help from DU and other similar sites, Steve Stockman and Ted Nugent achieve their objective

Stockman is an attention seeking asshole. So is Nugent. Their objective: get a lot of attention by announcing that Nugent is to be Stockman's guest at the SOTU. Their fervent hope: that this will cause Democrats hair to catch on fire.

From what I've seen here, they've achieved their objective.

Incidentally, Nugent is no patriot. He does no patriotic things. He dodged the draft, hates taxes and threatens the president's life. What in HELL is patriotic about that man?

there isn't any one of his actual constituents this GOPer thinks more worthy of a ticket?

No disabled veterans?
No firefighters or injured or heroic cops?
No school teachers? (Okay, I know, the GOP HATES all public school teachers, but still)?

He must have an awfully low opinion of his district.

68. Prevent Him From Being Present

Can't the Secret Service prevent him from attending? Considering his history with the President couldn't the Secret Service say he will not be allowed to attend the event due to the chance that he could attempt to harm the President? It seems that they could argue that Nugent stated that if President Obama was reelected he (Nugent) would either be "dead or in jail". Couldn't they argue, even if it is the slightest chance that it will happen, there is the chance that Nugent will atttempt to harm the President or others he has threatened in the past in order to fulfill his statement. Therefore, he cannot be allowed to attend the State of the Union speech.

69. Since the Secret Service presumably has concluded he's not an actual threat

what basis would htey have for preventing him from attending?

He, like anyone else attending, will have to go through a security checkpoint. In all likelihood, his seat will not be in a prominent place -- somewhere in the gallery, hopefully not in the front row. (I'm not sure how tickets are allocated and seats assigned, but one would expect the guest of a junior member of the House to have a fairly low priority seat). My hope is that he's sitting behind some 6 foot 10 guy and no one can see his ugly face.

call this freedom of speech but I call this hate speech and the Congress person supported it by giving this guy a ticket. Is that the kind of representative his constituents want? Why would anybody vote for this idiot? It is the reason the Congress is in the state it is now. People are voting for and sending these crazy lunatics to Congress. I don't think the Republican Party has any good Policies worth listening to. That Party needs to be purged.

88. "Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman announced today...."

There's a Eugene Delgaudio link to Ted Nugent, via Donny Ferguson, Steve Stockman's spokesperson.

Connect the dots. From DCist.com:

After Threatening the President's Life, Ted Nugent Rewarded with Ticket to the State of the Union

"Texas Republican congressman Steve Stockman announced today...."

Texas Congressman Invites Ted Nugent to State of the Union

Stockman, a hardened conservative in his first term representing a swath of Texas stretching from the outskirts of Houston to the Louisiana border, sees in Nugent an ally against increased gun control, which Obama is expected to address tomorrow night. Nugent was invited "because he is a supporter of the Second Amendment and American values," says Stockman's spokesman Donny Ferguson. "We thought he would be a good representative."


Donny Ferguson? I've heard that name before.

Virginia link to Frontline story about outside money in Montana

Learning from the master of corrupt politics himself

Donny Ferguson, former aide to as yet unindicted Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio (R-Sterling), is the subject of a fascinating investigative story by PBS Frontline showing how Donny has applied the lessons of dirty politics, smear campaigns, and dubiously legal fundraising pioneered by his mentor Delgaudio.

Donny, as many Loudoun residents know, is the mastermind of periodic sleazy robocalls which attempt to spread dirt on candidates just before an election. Because his “American Tradition Partnership” claims to be a “social welfare non-profit” organization, it is allowed only to “educate” voters on “issues,” not endorse candidates. It is illegal for such organizations to coordinate with campaigns.
