FLASHBACK: Secret Service Investigated Ted Nugent for Comments Made About OBAMA

President Trump blasted Snoop Dogg for a ‘music video’ that he made in which he assassinated President Trump. Trump said in a tweet: Can you imagine what the outcry would be if @SnoopDogg, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!

Remember what happened when Ted Nugent made comments about Obama that were less of a threat than what Snoop Dogg did? The Secret Service investigated Nugent!

The Washington Post reportedTed Nugent has an appointment with the Secret Service on Thursday after he was called in to explain his comments about President Obama at a National Rifle Association Conference in St. Louis last week. The Associated Press reports:

“The conclusion will be obvious that I threatened no one,” Nugent told radio interviewer Glenn Beck on Wednesday. Nugent said he’d been contacted by the agency and would cooperate fully even though he found the complaints “silly.”

The controversy erupted after the self-styled “Motor City Madman” made an impassioned plea for support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis last weekend. “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” Nugent said of the Obama administration.

He also included a cryptic pronouncement: “If Barack Obama becomes the next president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

Outraged Democrats circulated the remarks and suggested they were threatening. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed that the agency was looking into the matter but declined to give details. “We are aware of the incident and we are taking appropriate follow-up,” Ogilvie said.

Will there be an investigation into Snoop Dogg? Absolutely not. Why? Because this is America where there is a double standard for liberals who never receive the punishments they deserve.
