Of course Ted Nugent has something to say about the George Zimmerman trial verdict, because he always has something to say and the Motor City Madman is definitely not pulling any punches with his thoughts.
During an interview with radio station WXBR, Nugent was asked about Stevie Wonder’s boycott of Florida, in the wake of Zimmerman being found not guilty of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. Wonder says he won’t perform in the state again until their ‘Stand Your Ground’ law is abolished.
“You’ve got to be kidding me,” Nugent says, “So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people, and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder. Are you kidding me? What is this, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’?”
Ted wasn’t done there, continuing, “How brain-dead do you have to be? How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clear-cut case where all the evidence, from the D.O.J., from the F.B.I., from the army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin? And you’re going to focus on that clear and universally concluded act of self-defense, but ignore the black on black slaughter that’s happening every day in this country.”
Strong words from Nugent, who has been very clear about his pro-gun stance repeatedly in the past. He also says he’ll pray for Wonder and “all these other numbnuts who think that Trayvon Martin’s life is more important than the tens of thousands of slaughtered blacks at the hands of blacks.”
Nugent ends his comments wondering how a performer like Stevie went “from being one of the most soulful people in the world to being absolutely soulless.”
