Right-wing rocker and NRA Board Member Ted Nugent took to Facebook to promote a violent fake video that shows Bernie Sanders shooting Hillary Clinton on stage during a presidential debate.
In a May 10 Facebook post Nugent wrote “I got your gun control right here bitch!,” sharing the edited footage of a CNN debate between Clinton and Sanders discussing gun deaths in the U.S.
“It’s not a laughing matter. Ninety people on average a day are killed …” Clinton says.
But she’s unable to finish her sentence because Sanders reaches into his blazer, pulls out a handgun and shoots Clinton on stage, her blood splattering everywhere.
As the crowd cheers after Clinton falls to the floor, the camera cuts to CNN host Wolf Blitzer, who tells the audience that the station has to take a commercial break.
Let it be known, of course: Bernie Sanders did NOT approve this message.
Nugent also “liked” a comment by a supporter who fantasized about Clinton’s death.
The rabid gun nut has been investigated in the past by Secret Service for comments he made about President Barack Obama before the 2012 presidential election.
“If Barack Obama becomes the president in November, again, “I will be either be dead or in jail by this time next year,” he vowed at the time.
The case was closed without the agency taking any action.
Nugent, who is up for re-election on the NRA’s board of directors, is scheduled to speak at NRA’s annual meeting, which will be held May 19 – 22 in Louisville, KY.
According to the NRA, Nugent’s speech is called 2016 Election Do or Die for America and Freedom. On the event page, the NRA claims:
Never before has the orchestrated threat against America, freedom and our sacred 2nd Amendment rights been more dangerous than in 2016. The Obama/Clinton liberal Democrat gang is maniacal in their attack on all things individual rights, truth, logic, commonsense and The American Way. Are there enough of us willing to do battle with these evil forces? We can and we must win this one.
Nugent has used his Facebook page to promote anti-Semitic, racist, and misogynist commentary in recent months, but this altered footage of Clinton’s murder by Sanders is his most disgusting use of social media yet.
