Ted Nugent, the man who earned the spot as the #5 most wanted celebrity know-nothing for repeatedly advocating for violence against Democratic politicians, for telling Barack Obama to "suck on [his] machine gun" and encouraging NRA members to "chop their heads off in November," will be in attendance at President Obama's State of the Union address.
Nugent will be attending the address as an invited guest of Steve Stockman, a congressional representative from Texas.
"I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama," Stockman said in a statement. "After the address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say."
Surely Stockman could have chosen someone who isn't incredibly prone to loud, childish outbursts as his invited guest, or at least someone who has not publicly advocated for the assassination of President Obama and his administration multiple times.
Nugent has already been investigated once by the Secret Service after, at the 2012 NRA convention, he promised that he would be "either be dead or in jail by this time next year" if Obama were reelected.
More recently, at the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show (SHOT), Nugent referred to President Barack Obama as "an evil, dangerous man who hates America and hates freedom," accused him of "attempting to re-implement the tyranny of King George," and warned that "we need to fix this as soon as possible."
As if that were not incendiary enough, Nugent finished by saying "And if you want another Concord Bridge, I got some buddies."
And unless the Secret Service has Nugent on the terrorist watch list (which they should) and bars him from entering, he is about to be in attendance at the State of the Union address.
For this shameless pandering for publicity to stupidity, Steve Stockman not only warrants mention as a most wanted elected instigator; he has earned a spot on the list of the ten most wanted elected instigators.
Congratulations, Harry Reid. You're off the hook.
