Exactly. This is the point that is being missed.

Even some of the liberal posters are going "no-one takes Nugent seriously, he is a joke", etc.

I must have a sense of humour deficit, I don't see why it is a laughing matter to threaten the lives of sitting politicians.

If a Democratic politician is assasinated in the next few years, then Nugent is partially to blame for creating a climate where it is ok to make jokes (nothing to worry about! just a little joke! lighten up!) about machine gunning Democratic politicians.

It's also a matter of free speech rights in our country, I think. There's difficult and somewhat blurry line between true threats and (tasteless) political protest. I think the "liberal" posters here may see Ted's rantings as more along the lines of the latter, rather than true threats.

It could be that. In Europe, free speech rights are far more restricted, rightly or wrongly.

Exactly. Reference previous point, that the title of this thread implies that he is threatening to "shoot" these people.

No, he's crass and vulgar.

Now, I'll be heading down to shoot some trap. Getting a new 20 gague for my son and daughter. So much more fun that video games!

I read this quote from Bill Maher that I loved

"Ted Nugent was giving a concert and he held up a machine gun and made veiled threats about Hillary and Barack Obama. I find this shocking-Ted Nugent still has concerts?"
