TED NUGENT ASSAILED FOR ANTI-SEMITIC POSTS
Ted Nugent has been assailed by Jewish groups for a post he made to his Facebook page stating that Jews in political office are responsible for spearheading gun control laws that are aiming to take his guns away. In the picture he profiles 12 Jews in office and wrote in his caption: “Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP & BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security! Know them well. Tell every1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”
There was no mention of any other politicians from other religious groups that needed to be “shut down. ”
In following post Ted tried to clarify the narrative saying that he couldn’t believe that after the Holocaust the Jews in office would prevent people from defending themselves: “Just when you hope that mankind couldn’t possibly get any dumber or more dishonest, superFreaks rise to the occasion. What sort of racist prejudiced POS could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise? “NEVER AGAIN!” Anyone? Anyone?? RUFKM! The founder of Jews For the Preservation of Firearms Ownership called me his 2nd Amendment/Freedom hero. The NEVER AGAIN battlecry was universally embraced by all good people who will make sure another Holocaust never happens again. Freaks have plummeted to whole new low.”
In a previous interview Ted told Artisan News that part of the reason he wrote his hit song “Stranglehold” is to prevent people from sheep mentality, which he said is the same mentality that many Jews had when a majority of them wouldn’t fight as they were herded into the concentration camps — a fact that appalled him.
The upshot and danger is that Anti Semitic and White Supremacist groups have embraced rhetoric communicated by the photo that the Jewish leaders are the cause of the anti gun movement. Ted who is a member of the board for the NRA, National Rifle Association, is being pressured by many in the group to step down amidst the comments and expressions that have gone over the line.
Ted is no stranger to controversy as his controversial comments have been aimed at Hillary Clinton, Barrack Obama, Trayvon Martin, and the Supreme Court among others.
