The Tequila Party is demanding an apology from Ted Nugent for his atrocious remarks. The people of Arizona take weapons seriously and we are disturbed by his remarks in light of Arizona recent events involving our Congressman Gabby Giffords when she was shot in the head. I do believe in owning weapons, but Ted Nugent is absolutely irresponsible with his remarks. He ought to go to jail for his remarks because it seems treasonous.
Since Ted Nugent is being loose with his words, perhaps he ought to remember what happened in our state of Arizona where we could have lost one of our own — via Gabby Giffords. Regardless of what political aisle you stand on, one must never wish death on our elected officials.
Is this what so called Christians like Nugent and Palin have resorted to? I don’t recall Jesus advocating the shooting of others. Ted Nugent, Kris Kobach, Mitt Romney, Russell Pearce and more have become the new face of the Republican Party.
Que triste y mal.

By MARC LACEY and DAVID M. HERSZENHORN TUCSON — Representative Gabrielle Giffords, an Arizona Democrat, and at least 17 others were shot Saturday morning when a gunman opened fire outside a supermarket where Ms. Giffords was meeting with constituents.
Right Wing Watch has posted more footage from the event, in which Nugent compares Obama and democrats to a coyote that should be shot (view the new footage at the bottom of this article).
“It isn’t the enemy that ruined America. It’s good people who bent over and let the enemy in,” he said. “If the coyote’s in your living room pissing on your couch, it’s not the coyote’s fault. It’s your fault for not shooting him.” – TED NUGENT
According to the HUFFINGTON POST:
Though the wild rhetoric is from the weekend, Nugent had already endorsed Romney in early March. He also once threatened to kill Obama and Hilary Clinton and effusively praised Sarah Palin in the 2010 TIME 100 issue.
Nugent is hardly the only musician to be associated with Romney in recent weeks. After KISS frontman Gene Simmons was quoted as saying he supported Romney’s fiscal policy, outlets were quick to say the rocker endorsed Romney. Simmons quickly disputed the accounts, taking to Twitter to tell fans, “I HAVE NOT ENDORSED MITT ROMNEY FOR PRES.”
Nugent was more direct. “If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” he said. “If you can’t galvanize and promote and recruit people to vote for Mitt Romney, we’re done.”
