Ted Nugent: 'Donald Trump Is the Hellraiser America Has Needed'
Nugent shared a story from a conservative pundit, which predicts Trump will be assassinated.
“Know it, Donald Trump is the hellraiser America has needed for a very longtime [sic],” Nugent wrote today (Dec. 16). “He & Ted Cruz may be the only hope to end the criminal jihad on America by our own corrupt punkass government, media & bigBiz goons.”
After wondering if American citizens have it in them to wake up and stop the Democrats (along with a couple caps lock WE THE PEOPLE flexes), he copied and pasted an entire article written last month by the conservative pundit William Bennett, which wondered what would happen in a Trump presidency.
“They will kill him before they let him be president,” Bennett said, opening his Nov. 22 column. After bursting into the room with that line, however, the piece doubles back from murder conspiracies and focuses on the sort of Trump hero narrative Nugent is trumpeting. Bennett wrote that since Trump’s immense self-funding doesn’t necessitate pandering to the Republican or Democrat establishment, Trump is free to do as he pleases, which scares a lot of people. He seems to think Trump has a great chance at securing the Republican nomination, winning the popular vote, and throwing Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton into jail once he does.
It’s unclear how Ted Cruz fits into this master plan.
That’s an awful lot to swallow. It’s frightening. It’s crass. After all these years -- how has Ted Nugent not learned to embed links to Facebook correctly?
