Speaking at the NRA's annual convention Saturday, Nugent said each NRA member should try to enroll 10 new members over the next year and associate only with other members.
"Remember the Alamo! Shoot 'em!" he screamed to applause. "To show you how radical I am, I want carjackers dead. I want rapists dead. I want burglars dead. I want child molesters dead. I want the bad guys dead. No court case. No parole. No early release. I want 'em dead. Get a gun and when they attack you, shoot 'em."
Unless he's telling the children to shoot their attackers, the Nuge is telling people that if you find out that there's a child molester in your neighborhood, you shouldn't go to the police. You should get your gun and shoot the bastard.
No one is going to stand up for child molesters. But we all should stand up for accused child molesters and due process of law. I want the bad guys dead, too, but my primal blood thirst doesn't overcome my rational opposition to capital punishment.
Whoopi Goldberg makes some not particularly funny remarks about "bush" and it's a big political story. Nut jobs like Coulter and Nugent win applause for specific, ultra-radical calls to action or violence and they are "tart".
To be fair, Google News does find a few headlines calling Nugent extreme, including ABC.
