Ted Nugent Resolves Issue With Secret Service
April 19, 2012
Ted Nugent met with the U.S. Secret Service in Oklahoma on Thursday to discuss his controversial comments about President Barack Obama–and the agency says the issue has been “resolved.”
“The Secret Service interview of Ted Nugent has been completed,” Secret Service spokesman Brian Leary told Yahoo News. “The issue has been resolved. The Secret Service does not anticipate any further action.”
“I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone,” Nugent said following the meeting, according to CNN. “I met with two fine, professional Secret Service agents,” Nugent said in a statement. “[It was a] good, solid, professional meeting concluding that I have never made any threats of violence towards anyone. The meeting could not have gone better. I thanked them for their service, we shook hands and went about our business. God bless the good federal agents wherever they may be.”
During a National Rifle Association convention last weekend, Nugent said, “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”
The Secret Service said on Tuesday that it was aware of Nugent’s comments and would investigate.
“The bottom line is I’ve never threatened anybody’s life in my life,” Nugent said Wednesday on Glenn Beck’s radio show. “I don’t threaten, I don’t waste breath threatening. I just conduct myself as a dedicated ‘We the people’ activist because I’ve saluted too many flag-draped coffins to not appreciate where the freedom comes from.”
The gun-loving “Cat Scratch Fever” singer did not apologize for the incendiary talk, but added: “I’m not trying to diminish the seriousness of this, because if the Secret Service are doing it they are serious.”
Ted Nugent has released the following statement:
If all of America was just like the great families at the NRA 141st Annual Members meeting in St. Louis last weekend, our country would be flawless. Surrounded by my family, friends, patriots, law enforcement and military heroes, veterans who have sacrificed dearly for freedom and the US Constitution, the goodwill and positive energy in the air was cleansing to say the least. We set another attendance record for the NRA and for St. Louis. It was downright perfect.
I spent all three days doing fundraisers for children’s and military charities, fondling much hardware, meeting legions of good folks at the Ted Nugent Ammo exhibit, and shaking hands with great Americans, Canadians, Brits and freedom loving people from around the globe.
As always, I also conducted numerous media interviews providing unlimited self-evident truth and the inexhaustible evidence supporting the beauty of keeping and bearing arms for defense of self, family and liberty. Unarmed helplessness is for sheep and the French. Such an embarrassing, irresponsible, crime inducing condition is inexcusable.
On Sunday, April 15, my killer MotorCity soulbrother, Derek St. Holmes joined me onstage for an impromptu celebration of Motown classics and my firebreathing soundtrack of defiance and God given, constitutionally guaranteed individual rights. Much enthusiastic footstomping and dancing erupted like it was the 4th of July.
Introduced lovingly by the great Texas’ Attorney General Gregg Abbot, I took the stage, humbled yet proud that such a gathering of fine people would unite to hear the old guitar player raise hell for a better America.
My speech, just like every year at NRA, was about the unlimited greatness of this sacred experiment in self-government, thanking the heroes of the US Military and law enforcement for their incredible sacrifices waging war against the enemies of freedom wherever it may slither.
But beyond all that is good, the real duty of we the people is to watch out for and fight against the bad and the ugly brought about by people of power that historically have always abused it.
