Rock star Ted Nugent called out the Parkland student activists as “liars” and said he feels sorry for the teens who basically “have no soul.”
The conservative rock icon spoke out about the teens, anti-gun advocates who have become media darlings in the wake of the mass shooting at their Florida high school last month that claimed 17 lives.
“The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity,” Nugent said on Newsmax’s “The Joe Pags Show” on Friday, reacting to the attacks by the students on law-abiding gun owners and the National Rifle Association, where Nugent sits as a member of the board of directors.
“Again, the National Rifle Association are a bunch of American families who have a voice to stand up for our God-given Constitutionally-guaranteed right to keep and bear arms. We have no blood on our hands. No NRA member have ever been involved in any mass shootings at all, in fact the National Rifle Association is the lone organization that has taught firearm safety in schools, and for law enforcement, and for military, and for children’s organizations and family organizations around the country for 100 years,” Nugent said.
“The dumbing down of America is manifested in the culture deprivation of our academia that have taught these kids the lies, media that have prodded and encouraged and provided these kids lies,” he said after viewing video clips of students and survivors of the shooting like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez.
“I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless,” he added.
“To attack the good law-abiding families of America when well-known predictable murderers commit these horrors is deep in the category of soulless,” the 69-year-old guitarist said. “These poor children, I’m afraid to say this and it hurts me to say this, but the evidence is irrefutable, they have no soul.”
