Hoo Boy! Ted Nugent has stepped into it and I mean deep too…
Yesterday on Facebook, celebrity Second Amendment fan Ted Nugent posted photos of a dozen gun control supporters, all of them Jews, as indicated by the little Israeli flags over their faces. The headline: “So who is really behind gun control?” The captions on some of the photos mention additional offenses, such as “ISRAEL FIRSTER” (Alan Dershowitz), “gave Russian Jew immigrants your tax money” (Frank Lautenberg), “served in Israel’s army during Gulf War” (Rahm Emanuel), and “Nanny State troublemaker and 911 Israeli agent” (Michael Bloomberg). According to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), the grid of 12 anti-gun Jews “was apparently not created by Nugent, but has appeared in the past on anti-Semitic web sites” (such as this one) Source: Ted Nugent Claims Wildly Anti-Semitic Array of Gun-Hating Jews Was Misconstrued – Hit & Run : Reason.com
His posting? This:
And his reply to those who did not like the posting?
Just when you hope that mankind couldnt 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. Plummet on punks. Plummet on. Meanwhile I adjust my yamika at my barmitzva playing my kosher guitar. My dad killed nazis & saved Jews in WWII. Eat me. (source)
“The Nuge” as he is often called, is about to learn a hard lesson in what happens to one who dares to mention “The race of people who shall not be mentioned.” Good thing he is at the stage of his career that he is at; because if he were just starting out, he would be officially done, toast, finished.
I suspect before too long, Nugent will offer some sort of groveling apology to the masses for this little incident. I feel for him though, I have been there and it sucks when they do attack. I think he will ride it out; but there will be hell to pay. This is not a good way to promote a career though, not at all.
