Ted Nugent won't apologize for Obama remarks

ted-nugent-gi.jpgRocker Ted Nugent isn't backing down from his recent controversial comments in which he said he'd "either be dead or in jail" if President Barack Obama is reelected. In fact, he's doubling down.

During an interview with radio personality Dana Loesch on Tuesday (April 17), the "Motor City Madman" says, "There are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth." He adds that he feels like he's under attack for his statements saying, "I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally."

Nugent's original remarks, which he made at an NRA conference, haven't gone unnoticed by the Secret Service. They are reportedly investigating the rocker.

The "Stranglehold" singer also decided to take on Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz after she condemned his comments.

"Wasserman Schultz is such a brain-dead, soulless idiot ," Nugent says during the radio interview. "I could not be more proud that this soulless, heartless idiot feebly attempts to find fault with Ted Nugent, because I am on the right track and she just encourages me to stand stronger."

Nugent has publicly endorsed Mitt Romney for president.
