It’s “freedom” or the “evil carcasses” of President Obama and other progressive politicians, according to everyone’s favorite pants-shitting lunatic and washed up rocker extraordinaire, Ted Nugent. Nugent made the remarks in a Facebook post, where he told his followers to “make a donatoin [sic]” to the National Rifle Association and the Crime Prevention Research Center.
Nugent and the NRA go together like “the common cold” and “secondary respiratory infection,” so it should be a surprise that Nugent is a longtime member of the NRA’s board of directors. He made the remarks in an October 14 post, naming President Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder, “Clinton,” Sens. Charles Schumer, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, and Dick Durbin, along with Representative Nancy Pelosi and former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg as participants in a “propaganda jihad against our rights to self defense.”
Nugent added that everyone should “join the NRA” and “be the best American you can be. Freedom or their evil carcasses for traction back to it.” He also encourages his followers to “de-sheeple the braindead masses with their peace&love disease,” because as everyone knows, peace and love are diseases that affect “sheeple.”
He also called on supporters to donate money to the Crime Prevention Research Center, group founded by discredited academic, John Lott. Lott is best known for his “more guns, less crime” theory (how’s that holding up, by the way?) and has faced charges of data manipulation and fabrication, making him ideal for the gun nut movement. Media Matters reports that Lott twists statistics on gun violence so he can push a pro-gun agenda, such as publishing a report accusing a study done by Everytown for Gun Safety of containing errors, when the CPRC report itself was riddled with errors that undermined its claim.
This is a group that Nugent regularly stomps for, and has reportedly served on the group’s board of directors.
