Ted Nugent Likens Self to “Black Jew at Nazi-Klan rally”

Ted Nugent really loves the sound of his own voice… and in this case, his ignorant and bigoted voice.

Last weekend, Nugent made news when he spewed a series of controversial comments about President Obama at a National Rifle Association convention.

"If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year," Nugent said at the convention.

Nugent’s comments prompted the Democratic party to ask for an apology, and for presumptive Republican Presidential nominee, Mitt Romney, to distance himself from the musician. Additionally, an investigation was triggered by the Secret Service due to Nugent’s implied threat against Obama.

"I have never in my life threatened anyone's life. I'm incapable of threatening anyone's life. Because I'm about positive change, my entire speech, all my articles," Nugent said in response.

On Tuesday morning, Nugent appeared on conservative Dana Loesch’s radio show. During the interview, Nugent stated “I’m a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally… And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth.”

Nugent considers himself a “truth-teller” and refuses to take back any of the comments he has made.

"I spoke at the NRA and will stand by my speech. It's 100 percent positive. It's about we the people taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration, the communist czars he has appointed," he said.

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz launched a web video and a petition calling on Mitt Romney (who Ted Nugent endorsed) to denounce the singer.

"Wasserman Schultz is such a brain-dead, soulless idiot," complained Nugent. "I could not be more proud that this soulless, heartless idiot feebly attempts to find fault with Ted Nugent, because I am on the right track and she just encourages me to stand stronger."

As of publication, Mitt Romney has kept his distance and stayed mum on the subject.
