Ted Nugent: "Blacks are only ones who don't realize Democrats are destroying Black America"

Link: http://mediamatters.org/blog/2013/02/21/ted-nugent-blacks-are-only-ones-who-dont-realiz/192754
Conservative commentator and National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent wrote in his latest column that African-Americans are the only ones who don't realize that President Obama is continuing the Democratic Party's decades-long destruction of black America.

The comments are the latest in a long line of racially inflammatory statements from the rocker, who has said of the Confederate battle standard, "I am going to wear it forever."

In his February 20 WND column, titled "I Honor Blacks - The Dems Destroy Them," Nugent highlighted several metrics by which black America is struggling and commented:

"Barack Obama, the guy who received roughly 93 percent of black American votes, is the clear and present engineer of the destruction of black America.

It's not all the president's fault, but the economic and social policies he endorses are destroying what is left of a once proud and strong black America.



The truth is that the Democratic Party has been the engineer of the destruction of black Americans, and everyone knows it except the very people who need to know it the most - black Americans.

The turbo-destruction will continue for black Americans until they realize that dirty Democrat politicians are their true enemy, not their salvation. Fortunately, some are beginning to embrace this self-evident truth.

The truth will set those black Americans free who want to be free, who want to be the best they can be, who want to leave their grandchildren a better, stronger America."

Elsewhere in the column Nugent praised "the tapestry of black America" as "rich and vibrant," and claims that "black musical thundergods" influenced his "fire-breathing musical career." He concludes, "Say it loud: my music is black and I'm proud!"

This year alone, Nugent has attacked President Obama's "racist agenda"; accused civil rights leaders of speaking "ebonic mumbo-jumbo"; and claimed that gun owners will become the next Rosa Parks and offer nonviolent resistance if President Obama issued an executive order confiscating guns (a statement for which he was condemned by leaders of the NAACP, Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and National Urban League). Such comments have not prevented Nugent from being praised by hosts at CNN and Fox News.

Others at the NRA have offered similarly insensitive comments related to race. Former NRA president Marion Hammer drew widespread criticism after she compared a proposal to ban assault weapons to past racial discrimination, and commentators have criticized the "racial overtones" they found in executive vice president Wayne LaPierre's recent op-ed.

1. I'm not reading anything said by Ted Nugent.

I've decided he doesn't exist.

2. I just love it when ignorant, racist assholes pretend to love black folks

in order to talk down to us or "inform us" of stuff that they think we need to be doing.

There is nothing better than having some racially clueless fuckwit quote Rosa Parks, Coretta or MLK and of course Cornel or Harry Belafonte in order to inform us lowly Negroes of how we need to think about or address an issue. Just makes me all warm and tingly inside.

6. What you just said!

That was my first thought.

Because we need a big smart white man like Ted Nugent to break it down for us. Only in his little pea brain trying to stay relevant mind and trying to sell concert tickets ass (not much difference between that and his brain) can that even be considered an 'idea'.

7. Girl, to be perfectly honest

I don't even know who Ted Nugent is. Not the first clue. He could be a singer. He could be a dancer. He could be a basketball playing astronaut. I haven't the first clue who he is.

And when I saw the name the first thought that came to my mind was "isn't nugent that stuff that's in Snicker bars?"

10. How could I have forgotten! The patron saint of racists

"But Cosby says it too, so it must be true!"

Will always love Bill for The Cosby Show. But for the last 20 or so years, he hasn't done much for his reputation among alot of black folks.

11. Ted Nugent is obviously...

 

an exceptional idiot. I'm sure his opinion on anything that matters is less valuable than his music, which reflects well his lack of talent. i am, however, trying to figure out what Bill Cosby has said to draw fire on this thread, and be tied in with Ted Nugent. As far as I know, he has been a proponent of family, hard work and education. Why would this be reason to hang the tag of Racist around his neck and lump him in with that idiot Nugent?

19. i thought you had...

 

but i see that you just called him the Patron Saint of Racists. I guess I don't get your meaning, but either way it does not sound like it is a compliment for The Coz. I don't understand what he has done to earn a bad reputation since, as I said earlier, his message seems to be consistently family, education and hard work. Black, white, green, whatever...that seems to me like a positive message for everyone.

12. Ted Nugent is a wonderful man.

He creates more Democratic votes every day, as his deranged views alienate moderate Republicans who can't find a home in their party anymore.

He is one more thing that will help bring the Repubs down further, as the Tea Party successfully does as well.

So, may there be more Ted Nugents, to help turn the Republican party into a fringe party.
