Ted Nugent and Bill Maher
I don’t like anything about this Cretan…
Rocker and avid gun rights enthusiast Ted Nugenthas revealed an unusual hobby. And it’s all for the benefit of “Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”
Nugent reportedly told the full story to SiriusXM’s Brett Winterble.
“I took my machine gun in the helicopter — in the Texas hill country – me and my buddy ‘Pigman’ … his name is ‘Pigman’ – I’m the swine czar. I killed 455 hogs with my machine gun. I did it for Bill Maher and all those other animal rights freaks out there.”
A look back at Nugent’s Twitter account shows that this wasn’t the first time he had partaken in this pastime. He posted this provocative message back in January:
During the radio interview, Nugent went on to explain that his actions were meant to help “save the environment from the destruction of these out-of-control pigs and I’m not talking about Washington D.C. or San Francisco … I’m actually talking about actual pigs.”
And he didn’t just let the 455 hogs go to waste. “We distributed tons of the most delicious pork to the soup kitchens and homeless shelters of this state,” Nugent said “Everything we did was perfect – win win win.”
If the first “win” was saving the environment and the second “win” was feeding the homeless, we can only assume that the third “win” was the pure enjoyment Nugent got from shooting his machine gun. If you throw in pissing off Bill Maher, you might as well throw in one more “win,” making Nugent’s actions “win win win win.”
Maher has yet to respond to Nugent’s boasts, via Twitter or any other means of communication. But no one should be surprised if this story ends up as one of his “New Rules” on Friday.
Mr. Nugent is a sandwich short of a picnic!
Ted Nugent really needs to learn the art of keeping one’s mouth shut. Not even a month removed from telling gun nuts at a National Rifle Association rally that they should have shot Democrats and President Obama and must “chop their heads off in November, Nugent flew into a rage in an interview with CBS reporter Jeff Glor.
CBS’ This Morning’s Jeff Glor asked Nugent if the Romney campaign had a problem with his NRA comments. Nugent said that the Romney campaign has expressed nothing but support for him after the outrageous remarks. “Stay on course, Ted,” the Romney campaign reportedly told Nugent. “Freedom of speech is a beautiful thing.”
Nugent accused liberals of misinterpreting his NRA remarks, denying that they were a threat against anybody. Glor pointed out that Nugent isn’t a moderate, and that’s when Nugent went off the deep end. After claiming that he’s a “loving man” and “nice guy,” Nugent made sexual comments to Glor and a nearby female CBS producer.

Well, Mr. Nugent, you could have fooled me given the fact that you have a rather uncanny passion for guns…
Rocker Ted Nugent said Wednesday that he had never and would never threaten anyone’s life.
“That’s ridiculous,” Nugent told radio talk show host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R). “I mean, I’m a non-violent guy, I don’t threaten. I wouldn’t waste my time threatening, I’ve never threatened anyone’s life in my life. I will not threaten anyone’s life. I certainly wouldn’t threaten the life of the president, or anybody in public office, or anybody anywhere.”

Nugent confirmed that he was contacted by the Secret Service, who are investigating his comments during the NRA convention that he would be “dead or in jail by this time next year” if President Barack Obama is re-elected. Nugent, who has a history of inflammatory comments, said the Secret Service was just doing their job in investigating what he called the “preposterous, outrageous, deceitful dishonest claim that I threatened anyone’s life.”
“I respect their duty to do so,” he said. “The rules of engagement for the Secret Service is to respond even when someone as maniacal as a Wasserman Schultz or Pelosi or Boxer or Feinstein” complains.
“They want to shut me up, and it ain’t going to happen,” Nugent said.
UPDATE – 1:25 p.m.:
The Secret Service has also confirmed they will interview Nugent, according to NBC News. Nugent said he will meet with them Thursday, but the Secret Service could not confirm a date.
