They don't call him "Terrible Ted" for nothing.
American hard-rocker Ted Nugent—famous for his conservative political views and defense of the right to bear arms and kill animals and/or trespassers with them—lashed out with both barrels at supporters of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) in a recent interview with Royal Flush magazine.
The 61-year-old singer-guitarist—who sold millions of albums in the '70s and had a major hit with 1977's "Cat Scratch Fever"—kicked off the chat by blasting some of PETA's higher-profile members:
“My name is Ted Nugent and because of Pam Anderson and because of Bill Maher and because of Paul McCartney, all the members of PETA, whenever I hear the word ”˜animal’ or ”˜rights’ in the same paragraph, I’m killing an extra hundred of something this year.
“I have unlimited deer tags in Michigan and Texas," continued Nugent, "and I don’t even need to kill them really, but I’m going to for Bill Maher. I’m not just killing them I’m fucking slaughtering them and I’m going to gut them and skin them, quarter them and butcher them and feed them to the soup kitchen and homeless shelters of America. Not because I need to, because it will cause Bill Maher to shit blood. That’s my goal in life.”
Nugent recently abandoned his home state of Michigan to take up residence in Crawford, Texas, not far from his hero George W. Bush. That way, he said, he can keep a machine gun in the front seat of his vehicle.
"Mess with me and I will fill you full of lead and then dance on your remains and keep the shit from your carcass in the cleats of my boots while I feed my dog your remains," Nugent told Royal Flush, adding: "You can feel the love, can't you?"
Not surprisingly, Nugent also took the opportunity to dump on Bush's successor, U.S. president Barack Obama.
"I think that Barack Hussein Obama should be put in jail," he ranted. "It is clear that Barack Hussein Obama is a communist. Mao Tse Tung lives and his name is Barack Hussein Obama. This country should be ashamed. I wanna throw up."
