Ted Nugent recently spoke at a rally for former president Donald Trump where he urged the crowd to go "berserk on the skulls" of basically everyone he disagrees with. "Think of what the enemies of America have done over the last 14 months," said Nugent.
"They didn't sneak into the White House — they lied, they cheated, they scammed, and everyday the Democrats violate their sacred oath to the Constitution. And if you can't impress you friends on that, they shouldn't be your friends. I love you people madly, but I'd love you more if you went forward and just went berserk on the skulls of the Democrats and the Marxists and the Communists."
Now in a new video published on Nugent's YouTube channel, he retracts the statement in only a way that Nugent can retract a statement – by calling everyone stupid.
In his rant, Nugent says he meant just going "berserk on the skulls" of his political opponents as a "colloquialism." He then goes on to insinuate that everyone who doesn't understand the term "colloquialism" is a moron, and then says that "'Pounding it into their skulls' is a historical colloquialism." Even though he said "berserk on their skulls," which is noticeably not the same term. Oh, and apparently all his critics are "either liars or just rotten, nasty people." Y'know, just totally sane regular people stuff. Nugent doesn't have a victim complex at all. Nope.
"I know it makes you wanna just beat the shit out of these people 'cause they're so bad. I'm talking about beating the shit out of bad people that are ruining America." But then he clarified: "I'm not gonna beat the shit out of 'em. We're gonna beat the shit out of 'em at the voting booth. So everybody, relax with their I need to pound it into their skulls, 'Nugent pounding skulls.' No, it's a colloquialism.
"Now, my critics don't know what the word 'colloquialism' means, so we'll just wait for them to go to their Webster's dictionary and Google it. 'Pounding it into their skulls' is a historical colloquialism and evidence to support the truth, logic and common sense into the minds of idiots. You don't really pound skulls; it's a figure of speech. How embarrassing that the author of 'Wango Tango' has to explain this to the haters. But they already know — they just like to hate. They just live a lie. They're all liars. All my critics are either liars or just rotten, nasty people."
