The 1970s rock star and gun right advocate is once again embroiled in a controversy.
This time it earns hims a visit from the Secret Service. The rocker Ted Nugent went to the National Rifle Association annual convention in St. Louis and made a veil threat at President Barack Obama.
This isn't the first time, Nugent made comments toward President Barack Obama.
In 2008, then U.S. presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were subjected to a profanity laced rant by the rock star in which he told Hillary Clinton to ".... his machine gun!"
The most recent statement from the rocker is a declaration that "[He] will either be 'dead or in jail’ if Obama us re-elected!"
Ted Nugent reluctantly endorsed Mitt Romney after the collapse of Republican candidates Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul.
After the controversies with Rush Limbaugh, Hank Williams, Jr., Glenn Beck, and Dr. Laura Schlesinger many conservatives are trying to find rage with those who have liberal/progressive views.
The controversial libertarian comedian Bill Maher who's notorious for his no nonsense stance on issues, became the lightening rod for conservative outrage.
Sean Hannity in particular is obsessed with Bill Maher's measly $1 million donation to President Barack Obama's "Super Pac".
While Hannity's good friend Ted Nugent is popping off his firearms and his big mouth attacking President Barack Obama, the conservatives tend to defend the controversial statements.
Glenn Beck in particular has called his good ole' buddy Ted a "patriot" for his stances.
This marks the latest controversial statements from conservative entertainers.
Earlier this year, Patricia Heaton, best known for her role as Frankie Heck on The Middle and her role as Debra Barone in Everyone Loves Raymond made a controversial tweet about Sandra Fluke, a birth control advocate who was subjected to a partisan attack from Rush Limbaugh.She later deleted the comment and partially ended her Twitter usage. Heaton later apologized for her comments. The controversy lead to Rush Limbaugh losing over 100 radio advertising sponsors.
Hank Williams, Jr. was apparently drunk on the Fox & Friends program and he made an outrageous statement calling President Barack Obama, "Hitler" and saying Vice President Joe Biden and Governor John Kasich of Ohio along with the president are the "Three Stooges". He was later dropped from ESPN as the opening music act and spokesperson.
It was determined that Secret Service found Ted Nugent's comments weren't threatening towards President Barack Obama. But they're aware of his past statements.
Nugent never apologized for his comments, although he walked back his most harshest criticism of the president.
The aftermath has led to Nugent being pulled as act for the U.S. Army event at Fort Knox, Kentucky.
Nugent also facing a citation for shooting a black bear he illegally killed in southeastern Alaska during a hunting trip.
Ted Nugent appeared on White nationalist radio program The Political Cesspool with Stormfront host/contributor James Edwards in 2009.
The Political Cesspool Radio show is a conservative program that sponsors White supremacists and extremists. It's a part of Stormfront, a white nationalist online community.
