Legendary rocker Ted Nugent made a surprise call to conspiracy theorist Alex Jones earlier this week to thank him for waking him up to the "New World Order" — an imagined group of powerful elites who are colluding to create a one-world, totalitarian government that will, in Jones' mind, inevitably take control if things like stricter gun laws happen. Ted and Alex also discussed the growing police state under "dictator Obama" and "the current attacks on the second amendment from the socialist liberals that control the senate." You can now listen to the chat in the YouTube clip below.
Nugent, who is an avid supporter of gun rights and antagonist of President Barack Obama, was in the House Chamber on February 12 when Obama delivered his State Of The Union address. Nugent attended the event as a guest of Steve Stockman, a Republican congressman from Texas who has previously talked of impeaching Obama over his gun control proposals.
Nugent was investigated by the Secret Service in April 2012 after saying that he would be "dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama was re-elected.
While attending the National Rifle Association convention last year, Nugent, who had endorsed Mitt Romney in the general election, said, among other things, "If you don't know that our government is wiping its ass with the constitution, you're living under a rock. . . I'll tell you this right now: if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year. . . Our president, and attorney general, our vice president, Hillary Clinton — they're criminals. We're Americans because we defied the king. . . We are patriots, we are bravehearts. We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November. Any questions?"
