Like most red-blooded, freedom loving Americans, rocker Ted Nugent was incensed after seeing the Benghazi tell-all film, “13 Hours.”
So much so, Nugent stirred controversy for saying that President Obama and Hillary Clinton should be “tried for treason and hung” over the matters that led to four Americans being murdered during the attack.
Nugent, not one to shy away from how he’s feeling, took to Facebook to vent his frustration. His fiery words have been shared far and wide, and have some wondering – and many hoping – he might have instigated some legal trouble for himself.
“Our unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Benghazi,” Nugent started.
“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, that’s who. They should be tried for treason & hung. Our entire fkdup gvt must be cleansed asap.”
Salon shared Nugent’s words saying, “This may actually constitute a federal crime.” The Daily Kos displayed some wishful thinking and said Nugent could be looking at a Class E felony for “threatening a president.”
Nugent remained unfazed and used his First Amendment Right to double-down on his assertion. He added another post, defending his stance, and the movie. “Lying scum traitors run America. Arrest, try, convict, punish lying scum traitors,” his proceeding post began.
It doesn’t seem like “Uncle Ted,” as so many of his fans call him, will be backing down any time soon.
