Guy who told Obama to ‘suck my machine gun’ now says we ‘have to be civil’

In the wake of shooting at a GOP baseball practice this Wednesday, rocker, die-hard 2nd Amendment crusader and Trump supporter Ted Nugent says it he’s seen the light when it comes to violent rhetoric.

Speaking to 77WABC Radio, Nugent said he has “reevaluated” his language when it comes to politics will stop saying things “that can be interpreted as condoning or referencing violence.”

“At the tender age of 69, my wife has convinced me I just can’t use those harsh terms,” Nugent said. “I cannot and will not and I encourage even my friends/enemies on the left, in the Democrat and liberal world, that we have got to be civil to each other.”

Nugent’s violent rhetoric targeting Hillary Clinton and former President Barack Obama is well known. During a concert, he called on Obama to “suck on my machine gun” and then went on to encourage Clinton to “ride [one of his machine guns] into the sunset, you worthless b*tch.”

Five people were wounded on Wednesday morning when James T. Hodgkinson opened fire at a baseball field in Alexandria, Virginia. GOP Congress members and their staffers were holding a practice for the annual congressional charity game.
