Disgraceful! Former rocker turned gun loving nut job Ted Nugent has posted a simply awful meme claiming Jewish politicians and scholars are looking to take away gun his rights, calling them ‘evil’ and ‘punks.’ But the Twittersphere is fighting back at his anti-Semitic rant!
This is INSANE! We know former 70’s rock star Ted Nugent, 67, has totally gone of the rails in recent years with rabid extreme right-wing beliefs and even more out there pro-gun statements, but the Motor City Madman’s latest pronouncement is a disgusting and nauseating rant against Jewish politicians, posting a meme of their photos in an anti-Semitic Facebook rant that is drawing the ire of many. Read on for the horrible things he had to say and the blowback he’s taking online!
Ted posted a meme on Feb. 8 titled “Who is really against gun control,” and shows the faces of prominent Jewish politicians like former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and U.S. Senators including Dianne Feinstein and Chuck Schumer just to name a few. It’s clear that it’s anti-semetic as the Israeli flag is plastered on all of the photos. “Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil,” Ted says in a vile rant.
“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 everyone you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!” Ted finished captioning the hateful meme, but the internet isn’t letting him get away with it, as the Twitter universe caught wind of it and his rant became a trending topic!

Sometimes I wish Obama really was a dictator, then we wouldn't have to listen to Ted Nugent anymore.

Ted Nugent is trending.
He either said something Ignorant or died.

What’s worse, when he got angry comments on his initial Facebook rant, he actually replied further down the response cue with “Never Again Mother F—ers.” If he’s making a hateful response to his anti-Semitic rant by using a term that’s been used to describe the Holocaust (without the profanity), it’s official. Ted Nugent is one of the most vile people on Earth.
HollywoodLifers, what are your thoughts on Ted’s outrageous rant and vile meme post?
