“We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?” he said.
Nugent made the comments about President Obama and his administration at a National Rifle Association conference in St. Louis over the weekend.
Nugent has endorsed Mitt Romney for president, even though the former Massachusetts governor has supported programs similar to Obama’s, especially on health care, in the past. Nonetheless, Nugent urged each person to get a “couple of thousand” people to cast their ballot for the presumptive Republican challenger.
Nugent, 62, is a longtime hunting and gun rights advocate, a reality TV star and an outspoken conservative who hasn’t been shy about his dislike for the president.
Once known as the Motor City Madman, he was an insane rocker in his 1980s heyday. His taste for guns and hunting is acquired. He grew up in Detroit, Mich.
“Our government is wiping its a– with the Constitution,” Nugent said in the interview.
Democratic National Committee Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz called on Romney in a statement to denounce Nugent’s remarks.
“Mitt Romney surrogate Ted Nugent made offensive comments about President Obama and November’s elections this weekend that are despicable, deplorable, and completely beyond the pale,” she said.
“Yet what have we heard from Mitt Romney and the Republican Party, who should be outraged that someone representing them is using language like this to make a political point? Absolutely nothing.”
