Ted Nugent Doubles Down, Calls Democratic Leadership 'Subhuman,' 'Varmints'

Apparently, being under investigation by the Secret Service doesn't worry Ted Nugent one bit, because he went on CNN's Dana Loesch's radio show and threw more poo from his cage.

"I'm a black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally," the rock star complained to Loesch. "And there are some power-abusing, corrupt monsters in our federal government that despise me because I have the audacity to speak the truth...I spoke at the NRA and will stand by my speech. It's 100 percent positive. It's about we the people taking back our American dream from the corrupt monsters in the federal government under this administration, the communist czars he has appointed."

He's at a Nazi-Klan, rally to be sure. But..."communist czars?"

Nugent also compared Wasserman Schultz and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) to "varmints."

"Varmints are sometimes clever, but they're really easy to outmaneuver," Nugent said, before calling Pelosi a "sub-human scoundrel."

Apparently, the irony of casting himself as a victim of "Nazis" while railing against sub-human communist vermin is lost on him.

Here's what needs to happen next.

Barack Obama's campaign should call on Mitt Romney to reject and denounce these recent comments. The Democrats in the House should call on John Boehner to reject and denounce these comments. Every elected Republican or GOP operator near a microphone should be asked to reject and denounce these comments. Democrats should be in front of the cameras asking why Republicans are tolerating hate speech like this in their party, and they should keep doing it until the GOP says "Uncle" and they hate the sound of Ted Nugent's voice.

That's the correct playbook. Will they run it?
