In his own unique style, Ted Nugent offered his take on a police officer being shot in Ferguson, Mo., Saturday night, and on a culture that has led to what he called “a plague of black violence.”
“Liberalism and their insane cult of denial is the root cause of this plague of violence,” the rocker wrote in an editorial published Wednesday.
A deduction that has the left spitting mad and labeling the column a “racist tirade” and a “blatantly bigoted analysis.”
It didn’t help that Nugent referred to the suspects in the shooting of the officer — initial reports said two suspects were involved — as the “Ferguson thugs.”
Nugent noted that the media did not identify the race of the man who shot the officer, yet “reported ad nauseum” on the race of 18-year-old Michael Brown and the police officer who killed him.
He then drew his own conclusion as to who the suspect may be.
“Based on crime stats in Ferguson and elsewhere, it would be a safe bet to assume the two thugs the police are looking for are black males between the age of 15 and 25,” Nugent wrote. “It would also be a safe bet the two thugs being searched for were raised by a single parent, have criminal records, are high school dropouts, don’t have jobs and are very likely to be members of a gang.”
“The overwhelming majority of violent crime across America is conducted by young, black males who, sadly, are on the self-inflicted expressway to prison or an early grave – or more often than not, both,” he continued.
Nugent said politicians and the media, which he calls the “national propaganda ministry,” ignore the true reasons for the violence and try to place the blame on “lax gun laws.”
He then offered his take on the true cause — liberalism.
“It is liberalism that engineered and created the very conditions that have decimated and destroyed black American families and their communities,” Nugent said. “Astonishingly and regretfully, the overwhelming majority of black Americans continue to vote for the very political party that has destroyed them.”
Nugent commented on the failure of the “War on Poverty,” and shared his take on what the real goal was.
“The bullet-proof truth is that our hard-earned tax dollars were torched by Democrats to create a permanent voting block out of black Americans,” Nugent wrote. “Money is the bait, and they took it, hook, line and sinker. Now President Obama has proposed shoveling another $10 trillion over the next 10 years for more Fedzilla welfare crack.”
In the end, perhaps a little too much truth coming from a conservative white man in the age of Obama.
