To say that Ted Nugent doesn’t like the Democrat party, would be an understatement. Nugent has been very vocal about his disdain for Democrats, especially President Obama. Just take a second to read a few of his newest ramblings on the ultra-conservative World Net Daily:
“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.”
I didn’t realize Black America was so important to Nugent, besides the fact he’s known for making offensive statements about Black Americans, such as:
- Describing himself as a “black Jew at a Nazi-Klan rally.
- Or when he asked if the South should have won the Civil War after all.
- Then when he compared gun owners to Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks.
In honor of Black History, Nugent thought it would be a good idea to name his new tour the “Black Power 2013”, because he celebrates Black History Month. He contributes the music of Bo Diddley, Little Richard, James Brown and Wilson Pickett in launching his career.
“Indeed, the tapestry of black America is rich and vibrant. I don’t celebrate Black History Month. I celebrate it every day, as my very black-inspired musical dreams could not have been successful were it not for black Americans. My fire-breathing musical career was literally launched by black musical thundergods such as Bo Diddly, Little Richard, James Brown, Wilson Picket, Sam & Dave, Albert King, BB King, Freddie King, the mighty Funk Brothers, and the epitome of Rock ‘n’ Roll Gods, the master, Chuck Berry. The music these gentlemen created gave birth to my music and all great, moving, soulful music. We owe it all to them. Regrettably, the study of modern-day black history by future historians will not be bright or rich. I predict the fundamental blame for this will be laid at the feet of the Democratic Party”.
“There is no doubt that my 2013 tour will be the best of my life,” he writes. “With world-class virtuosos paying tribute to our black heroes nightly, it is only fitting that this year’s tour is aptly titled, ‘Ted Nugent Black Power 2013.’ Say it loud: my music is black and I’m proud!”
I find it hard to believe confederate flag carrying Nugent gives a damn about Black Americans and nothing more than a mere publicity stunt for his tour.
