Ted Nugent, the aging right-wing rocker who prominently campaigned with Greg Abbott and calls the Texas governor a “blood brother,” today launched into an especially vicious and seemingly unhinged attack on President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. On his Facebook page, Nugent called for Obama and Clinton to be “tried for treason & hung.” An excerpt:
Our unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Banghazi. Period! What sort of chimpass punk would deny security, turn down 61 requests for security, then tell US forces to STAND DOWN when they were ready to kickass on the allapukes & save American lives! Obama & Clinton, thats who. They should be tried for treason & hung. Our entire fkdup gvt must be cleansed asap.
Unless he gets embarrassed (and how likely is that?) and takes down the post, you can read the full screed here.
Nugent has a long history of making repugnant and incendiary statements. For example, he has called President Obama a “subhuman mongrel” and Hillary Clinton a “toxic c***,” “two-bit whore” and “worthless bitch”. He has also glorified sex with underage girls. But right-wing politicians like Gov. Abbott love campaigning with him.
