Ted Nugent, the famous conservative musician, told “The Todd Starnes Show” on Wednesday that the St. Louis homeowner who took up arms to defend his home last weekend is a “great hero” during “fascinating” times in the country that included some cities that saw police officers “turn tail” and flee from the angry mob.
Nugent said Mark McCloskey, the homeowner, executed the “most pure instinct of defending his precious life—a gift from God—from proven terrorists and arsonists and murders.”
Nugent called out officials in the city who criticized McCloskey’s actions. The city’s district attorney announced that her office is investigating the incident that occurred on Sunday inside the private community in the city.

“These are fascinating times,” Nugent said. He said the response to the country’s current “cultural deprivation” is what the Seattle Police Department is finally learning.
“We the people have to raise hell with our elected employees, support the law-and-order president, Donald Trump, and arrest bad people. Todd, help me here. I’m just a guitar player. Am I missing something?” Nugent said.
Nugent, who has recently been named an advisory board member for the Trump campaign, was referring to earlier reports that heavily equipped Seattle police officers cleared out the protesters who occupied CHOP.
Todd Starnes, the host of the radio program, said there appears to be an increasing number of cases where everyday Americans are standing up to the anarchists. He pointed to a woman in New York who faced off against a “pajama boy snowflake” and war veterans standing guard in Lebanon, Tenn., protecting the war memorials.
“Ted, it seems to me that the American people are basically saying, ‘You know what? We’re mad as hell, we’re not going to take it and if our government leaders will not defend us, we will do it ourselves,’” Starnes said.
Nugent said it is important that every American gun owner learns about the weapon so that they can properly use the “tool” in the event of an emergency. He said that the couple in St. Louis, though admirable, could benefit from familiarizing themselves with their guns.
Nugent said that the 2020 election will play a dramatic role in the future of the country. He said that it is incumbent on all Americans to keep the pressure on their elected officials.
“That’s why we elected Donald J. Trump,” he said.
