Nugent: ‘I Will Be Taking On Media Orgy’ After SOTU

Outspoken rocker Ted Nugent will attend President Obama’s State of the Union Address Tuesday in order to take on the media and “counter the scams and lies of the left,” he explained to talk radio host Mike Broomhead Monday.  

“We know that the president will have the state of the union stacked and jammed with props, children, and victims of violent crime, ” Nugent said. “And my friends wanted me to attend to counter that the way that I do: with facts, statistics and common sense and logic and a celebration of self-evident truths. So I will be taking on the media orgy following the State of the Union Address.” 

Nugent said the media does not realize he is a “force to be reckoned with” and therefore he will “dominate them.” 

Nugent added that he would be outspoken after the event but “remain respectful to the office of the presidency and the event itself.”

Nugent, an outspoken critic of Obama, had to be cleared by Secret Service this spring after saying that he would be “dead or in jail” if the president was re-elected. Nugent is a guest of Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX), whose spokesperson said the congressman invited Nugent “because he is a supporter of the Second Amendment and American values.”

Gun control advocates are also looking forward to Nugent’s appearance.
