Remember When Ted Nugent Threatened Obama?


Enjoyed the video ladies check these swimsuits out

Kathy Griffin recently made headlines for an offensive photograph involving Donald Trump, the right-wing has actually never done any type of violent imagery right, WRONG. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, the hosts of The Young Turks, simplify. Tell us exactly what you think in the remark area below.

Find out more right here:

" Head of state Donald Trump, together with numerous others, was naturally disgusted this week by an image of Kathy Lion where she is seen holding a prop resembling a bloodied and also beheaded version of the head of state's head.

Very early Wednesday morning, Trump called the picture "sick" and also claimed Griffin "should repent of herself."

It's a completely justifiable reaction to a picture that has actually gotten Lion discharged from her job as co-host of CNN's New Year's Eve shows.

However it's also worth noting that Trump had a much different response when somebody that later sustained his run for head of state additionally joked regarding eliminating the commander in chief.

In the lead-up to the 2012 governmental political election, musician Ted Nugent made remarks at a National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis that, like Griffin's picture, caused an examination by the Key Service." *.

    If it was Obama or Clinton’s head, the right wouldn’t have been as vocal about it.

      Also, the right are objectively the bad guys in this whole conflict so that automatically makes it worse.

      rouge1ful, what Nugent said is similar to what Madonna said. It was metaphoric. What Nugent said is similar to someone saying “we are going to slaughter them” to an opponent. It is metaphoric. You are defending Madonna because she is on the left and you are an extreme liberal. As a moderate I see little differences in what Madonna and Nugent said.

      What Griffin did was much more direct and graphic. That is why she was criticized so much.

    • Posted by rouge1ful, at Reply

      +whyamimrpink78 Madonna did not openly threaten people’s lives Ted Nugent did and did it multiple times.

    • Posted by whyamimrpink78, at Reply

      rouge1ful Nugent didn’t threaten anyone either. He was being metaphoric like Madonna was. But if you are going to claim that Nugent was threatening people then so was Madonna as blowing up the white house puts many lives in danger

      +whyamimrpink78 “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 2012

      Perhaps he took too much LSD back in the ’60s

    • Posted by rob smith, at Reply

      I was being sarcastic. He’s pretty much the biggest nobody now, who may have been somebody 50 years ago. I don’t even see why he’s relevant. Any decent human being accepts that he’s a piece of crap. We should hold Kathy Griffin to higher standards than we do some default low life.

    • Posted by rob smith, at Reply

      Well, you know how it is. No one could really tell how big a dirt bag this guy was way back then.

    So can CNN explain to me how Kathy Griffin posts a figurative display of a beheaded Trump and gets fired and ostracized publicly meanwhile Ted Nugent threaten to literally kill the President and the Secretary of State and yet he got invited to the White House? Remember when conservatives kicked up a storm over a controversial rapper being invited to the White House by the Obamas? Conservatives know no shame.

    Liberals have got to stop being weak and throwing each other under the bus every 5 minutes. Conservatives are bullies who have no principle. They don’t care if you say you’re sorry. They only they will respect is a sharp cuff upside their head and being told to stand in the corner. And that’s what we need to do before it’s too late.

    • Posted by whyamimrpink78, at Reply

      What Nugent said is metaphoric. Say during a campaign speech a candidate says “we are going to slaughter them this election” about an opponent. Is that violent or metaphoric?

      What Griffin did was more direct and graphic. There is a clear difference.

    • Posted by Ronin Dave, at Reply

      Ah, the disingenuous whyamimrpink rears his head! Did they ban over at the other channel? What Ted said was chop their heads off and said Obama should suck on his machine gun while saying he would be dead or in jail if Obama got re-elected. There is a clear difference. No one seriously thinks Griffin is going to behead Trump but given the guns and rhetoric Nugent sounds like a typical rightwing terrorist who shoots up a Sikh Temple mistaking it for a mosque.

    What is incredible is that TYT seems to have forgotten all the effigies of Clinton’s head on a pike that were displayed at Trump rallies during the campaign.

      Bryan May and that was just a 15 second google. I don’t really care f___ Clinton Ted and Trump. I was just curious about this statement.

      few bad apples, nothing near what you made it sound like. seen way worse at anti trump rallys. that whole freedom of speech thing fine line between it and a threat.

    violence only makes violence, those who live by the sword die by the sword. Unfortunately the violent often take a lot of bystanders with them. We need to stop thinking of violence as a means of achieving our goals.

    • Posted by hermenutic, at Reply

      Most of the world’s violence today is created by the impulse of someone wanting what someone else has. We call this violence war. To support this violence we have an entire industry which determines how the economy will be organized.

      Violence takes many forms, the most simple is the denial of choice the most extreme the taking of life by fiat. Unless the economy is based on peace instead of war it is unlikely violence will cease.

      It should be possible to develop a theory of capitalism that utilizes peace in the same way it utilizes war to make its wealth. We should begin thinking about making that kind of change and then use that as a starting point to rethink how society should be organized.

    • Posted by hermenutic, at Reply

      Social change is imperative. Authority must be in the hands of the people and the politicians kept on a short leash. Otherwise you have what you have right now . Most of us are disturbed about the current mess.

    • Posted by Harry Stoddard, at Reply

      I don’t see how capitalism in any form is going to end war. Capitalism thrives on war and theft.

    • Posted by hermenutic, at Reply

      Capitalism itself is only what men make of it. We have decided to make war of it. Suppose instead of capitalism dedicated to destroying societies it was dedicated to improving them. In the old days such a thing was called ‘re-tooling’. Why cannot we make as much money and produce as much benefit to society by a capitalist impulse structured to produce benefit to society? I’m guess I’m asking why is war the go to money making venture? (edited for clarity)

    • Posted by Harry Stoddard, at Reply

      You could say the same about feudalism or slavery. As Kropotkin said, if men were perfect, capitalism would be a fine system. No one would exploit one another, though they possessed the means to do so. No one would erect mansions while people lived in slums and on streets. No one would make wars while others starved.

      I’m not really sure what to make of your penultimate sentence, but as I see it, capitalism won’t accrue money and benefits to society (whose society?) but to individuals who get ever wealthier and more powerful and are needful of more and more violence to protect their wealth and power and to get more of it. War opens access to natural resources, labor, markets, and control of markets, all of which a system based on irrational, infinite growth requires.

    Nugent threatened to shoot Obama with a machine gun. Not art.

    • Posted by Jim Hesterman, at Reply

      Sure.. you can make that connection… but beheadings have been happening for centuries. What she wearing a headscarf/mask? What she green screened into the desert somewhere in the middle east? Clearly not a threat. Controversial art? Yes… threat? No.

      which is what i said about this topic in my post. but keep calling the kettle whatever.

      +Chunk Oooger No, not at all… When was the last time you heard about a liberal commit acts of violence towards other races just because they are not white?? You havnt because we dont, we protest, thats as far as we go… Far right wingers will not only commit violence, they behave like terrorists and then act as though they are civil in society.. All you do is deflect responsibility while at the same time tell liberals to be responsible for our own actions, while you dont do that yourselves… Look in the mirror and stop behaving like ISIS, by commiting violence just because you don’t agree with some people’s lifestyles.
