Ted Nugent rocks Yellen over ducking questions on Treasury targeting ‘MAGA’ financial transactions

Legendary rocker Ted Nugent slammed the Biden regime and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen over the government’s alleged flagging of firearm purchases as a sign of potential “MAGA” extremism, a flagrant violation of the rights of Americans.

An avid outdoorsman and hunter, the Motor City madman unloaded on the loopy Yellen who appeared before Congress last week to answer questions about her department’s directing of banks to surveil financial transactions in search of “right-wing extremism” after the so-called “insurrection” on January 6, 2021.

During her testimony to the Senate Banking Committee, the former Fed chairwoman ducked questions on the shocking allegations that purchases at sporting goods outlets like Dick’s, Bass Pro Shops and Cabela’s were being scrutinized for such terms as “Trump” and “MAGA,” another example of the degree to which Democrats have exploited the nation’s anti-terror apparatus to target political foes.

Yellen also refused to answer questions from Fox News reporter Hillary Vaughn, but would pose for pictures with fans, “I’ll say that I’m not taking questions,” said the indifferent federal bureaucrat while in the hallway, a clip that anchor Dana Perino rolled at the beginning of the segment.

“Well, you know jack-booted thuggery can come in the form of high-tech, and these oath-violators continue to turn this once great country into an evil empire,” Nugent said during an appearance on Friday’s edition of “America’s Newsroom” on Fox News. “She is just a bad, bad infringer. What they are doing, Dana, they are violating their constitutional oath.”

According to “the Nuge” the top Treasury official was in violation of her oath to the Constitution, one that he personally upheld in his duties as a reserve longtime sheriff’s deputy in Michigan.

“I know good over evil,” Nugent said. “I’m just a guitar player but for the author of “Wango Tango” to actually describe what infringement means this is just a terrible, terrible time. They are engineering recidivism. They are not charging gun crimes to gun violators on film. They’re recreating violent crime in these sanctuary cities, and the left and the Democrats, this is really, really a heartbreaking time.”

“The gun owners of America, the National Rifle Association, all my friends, my family, my band, my crew, everybody in my life knows that self-defense is a right from God. We get to keep and bear arms. ‘Keep’ means it’s mine, you can’t have it,” the legendary rocker continued. “And this high-tech infringement — we got to put an end to this stuff. What they’re doing is they’re safeguarding criminals and they’re denying good people the right to self-defense.”

“It’s so obvious that it’s just another criminal by this government that is totally out of control,” he added.

One of the last standing iconic rock and rollers of the 1970s, Nugent wears his patriotism on his sleeve and has been a ferocious defender of Constitutional rights, particularly the Second Amendment, being a longtime board member of the National Rifle Association (NRA) for over twenty six years.

During the golden era of rock guitar gods, Terrible Ted cranked out hit after hit including “Stranglehold,” “Cat Scratch Fever,” “Stormtroopin,” “Snakeskin Cowboys,” “Motor City Madhouse” and “Dog Eat Dog” while constantly touring the country as the headliner of stadium shows and he has continued to delight his fans well into his seventies.
