The hateful pig is at it again, and this time he’s taken a break from racism, Islamophobia and Obama-bashing in order to target another group of individuals: Jews.
Ted Nugent, the has-been rock-and-roll idol turned right-wing psychopath, posted on his Facebook a picture of various Jewish lawmakers, draped in the Israeli flag, with the caption “So who is really behind gun control?”
The picture features Senators Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, Frank Lautenberg (who died in 2013), Richard Blumenthal, Carl Levin and Chuck Schumer. Also featured is Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (whose name he spells wrong), prominent attorney Alan Dershowitz and former Mayor of New York City Michael Bloomberg.
But it’s Nugent’s personal message that resonated pure hatred:
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!
Here’s the thing the whack-job Ted Nugent doesn’t seem to get through his empty head: their “Jewishness” isn’t what fuels their passion for sensible gun laws – it’s the fact they are Democrats…you know, people who think logically and want to address the very serious issue that is gun violence. But somehow them being Jewish is what drives their passion? Does Ted forget that non-Jewish Democrats (both in Congress and not) are pushing just as hard for gun control?
His followers comments were surprisingly critical of the post:
Ted, any Jew who knows their own history believes in firearms freedom. Israel is one of the most armed nations on earth. This is a valid 2nd Amendment enemies list, but their jewishness has nothing to do with it. – Rich Murray
Looks like Uncle Ted is off his meds. Gun control is now a Jewish conspiracy. Where’s Jesse Ventura when you need him. – Kristian Zoeller
Uncle Ted … this is way anti-semitic and untrue. Many Jews, who are big fans of yours, are conservative, Republican, and members of the NRA. So, tell me it ain’t true that you support this anti-semitic bullshit so that I don’t have to toss my copy of Free-For-All. – Randy Braun
Ted, love you man but you are off the rails on this one. They are hard line progressives and that has nothing to do with Israel. Their agenda is not a Jewish agenda. You know better than this. – David Pletsch
And Republicans still wonder why people mock them? Their supporters consist of the off the rails extremists like Ted Nugent who turns gun control into a Jewish conspiracy.
