Ted Nugent has gone full ted Nugent again, this time suggesting that a vast Jewish conspiracy is trying erode gun rights.
Nugent made the claim in a Facebook post.
“Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, 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 every1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!” Nugent wrote on Facebook.
The Anti-Defamation League responded directly on Nugent’s post, saying,
“This is nothing short of conspiratorial anti-Semitism. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality. It should go without saying that anti-Semitism has no place in the gun control debate. You should be ashamed for promoting anti-Semitic content, and we hope that good people on both sides of the gun control debate will reject his tactics and his message. We hope you will have the good sense to remove this share immediately so that it does not spread virally across the internet.”
Nugent’s comments have even run afoul of some gun rights advocates, who have urged the National Rifle Association to remove Nugent from its board.
The NRA has responded, saying “individual board members do not speak for the NRA.”
