Veteran rocker Ted Nugent is well known for his fearless, outspoken views.
Speaking to Illinois Republicans earlier this month, he called Barack Obama an “absolute America-hating punk.”
“The whole world sucks, but America still sucks less,” he told a crowd of about 500. “But with this administration, we are catching up,” he added.
“We have a guy in the White House who is an absolute, America-hating punk,” Nugent told reporters. “And it isn’t really the punk’s fault. It’s we the people for bending over and letting the punk in the door.”
Nugent made it clear that apathetic voters and an uninvolved electorate are to blame for the mess the country is in.
“The real curse in America today is not Barack Obama and Eric Holder and Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden and Richard Daley and Rahm Emanuel,” he said. “They’re not the real punks. The real curse in America is apathetic, disconnected, uncaring, unconscionable Americans who dare not engage in this unique, sacred experiment in self-government.”
On Monday, The Blaze reported that Nugent – a native of Detroit – continued that theme in an interview at Phoenix’s KFYI radio.

Among his more piquant revelations, Nugent believes that having Tim Geithner serve as Secretary of The Treasury, bearing in mind Geithner’s “tax cheating,“ is like having Jeffrey Dahmer ”in charge of a children’s playground.”
He also said that “welfare is slavery” and that we have “American hating maniacs” in our government.
While Nugent excoriated the administration as corrupt as it “abuses power like no other administration” in the nation’s history.
But he also had some strong words for the GOP candidates, while saying that he admires each one, adding that any one of them would be a vast improvement over the current administration.
However, he encouraged the candidates to “go to the Army-Navy surplus store and buy a box of scrotums.”
“They gotta get tough,” with the administration, he added.
Nugent’s remarks can be heard at KFYI.
