National Rifle Association board member and aged rocker Ted Nugent is calling for President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton to be charged with treason and hanged for the government’s lack of response to the terrorist attack in Libya that killed four Americans.
In a Facebook post on his public page, Nugent says, “..our unholy rotten soulless criminal America destroying government killed 4 Americans in Banghazi. What sort of chimpass punk would deny security, turn down 61 requests for security,” he wrote. “They were ready to kickass on the allapukes & save American lives! Obama & Clinton, thats who.”
The post received approximately 20K likes and almost 6,000 shares. Many of the comments also backed Nugent.
He claims that Obama and Clinton told American forces to “stand down” when the US Consulate in Benghazi was under attack. The right wing rocker also alleges that Clinton, then the secretary of state, for allegedly telling troops not to carry out a rescue operation during the attack on the building.
Could Nugent’s sentiments influence voters? WIth 2.7M likes of his Facebook page, it’s very possible, but let’s see if his words land punches to affect the Democrats in November.
