What gets the folks at WorldNetDaily off? Spewing hate at President Obama.
That seems to be the explanation behind WND's disturbingly enthusiastic embrace of Ted Nugent's most recent nasty attacks on Obama and other administration officials, in particular his assertion that "if Barack Obama becomes the president in November, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year." It flooded the zone in defense of Nugent, promoting the dubious idea that this wasn't actually a threat against Obama's life:
In none of these articles, however, did WND mention Nugent's earlier declaration that Obama is a "piece of shit" who should "suck on my machine gun" -- which is even harder to deny is a death threat -- or calling Hillary Clinton a "worthless bitch."
How gaga has WND gone for Nugent's raging hatred? It created a petition (read: email harvesting scheme) to support him. The petition insists that Nugent "was only using metaphors to accentuate his irrefutable message: America is in deep trouble, and its citizens must act." Again, no mention of the "suck my machine gun" attack.
And then, because it wouldn't be WND if it didn't try to cash in on this somehow, there's this slide-out graphic on WND's front page:
Yes, Obama-hate really gets the boys at WND hot.
