Recent statements involving Ted Nugent

Says a picture he posted on Facebook of a man posing in front of five decapitated human heads is "one of the subhuman mongrels our president set free."

"I've been a cop in Lake County, Michigan, since 1982 thereabout. I conduct federal raids with the DEA and ATF and U.S. Marshals and the FBI and Texas Rangers."  

The words "subhuman mongrel," which Ted Nugent called President Barack Obama, were used by the Nazis to "justify the genocide of the Jewish community."

"Q: What do these ‘Patriotic' Americans have in common? A: They are all Draft Dodgers."

"We’ve got four Supreme Court justices who … signed their name to a declaration that Americans have no fundamental right to self-defense."
