After rocker Ted Nugent made very controversial comments over the week toward President Obama and other’s in the administration, he announced the Secret Service will be speaking with the Detroiter about his inflammatory comments.

Nugent’s rant—which came at the National Riffle Association convention—compared President Obama and other Democrats to “coyotes” that needed to be killed and said that if President Obama is reelected he will die or go to jail.

Nugent has endorsed presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, who has not come out to definitively denounce Nugent and his remarks, saying only “divisive language is offensive no matter what side of the political aisle it comes from.”

Many on both sides of the political aisle have come out against Nugent’s comments, but a few prominent Republicans have attempted to minimize his violent utterings. Republican Senator Ted Inhofe told CNN’s Soledad O’brien he doesn’t understand how Nugent’s comments relate to the President, while others have just brushed his words off as the ranting of a washed-up musician.

Whether Ted Nugent is serious about his violent remarks toward the Obama Administration or not, his comments echo much of the divisive rhetoric that permeates our political debates.

    Ted Nugent states that an educated person would not take his remarks seriously. I can now say that I was a Ted Nugent fan, but he went to far. I am a veteran and I really don’t like an american doing such unamerican things. I think instead of us educated people just getting what you are saying, maybe you should educate your self Ted Nugent and just go back to writing lyrics and singing. Let the real american find out what is good for ourselves. And four supreme court justices didn’t sign any petition to take our guns away idiot. They were just the four who voted against the chicago gun law. I emplore anyone that sponsors Nugents shows to cut him off, he is making educated American’s look really bad.
