Ted Nugent Unleashes Rabid Anti-Semitic Rant Over Gun Control

Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent has never been the paragon of stability or reason. However, few were prepared for his raving attack on Jewish leaders who favor gun control. On his Facebook page, posted pictures of Michael Bloomberg, Sen. Charles Schumer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emmanuel and other leaders next to an Israeli flag under the banner “So who is really behind gun control?” The answer, according to Nugent, is the chillingly familiar: “the Jews.” This controversy seems to mystify Nugent who later wrote “What sort of racist prejudiced POS could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise?”


The posting of the images was accompanied by the statement:

“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 every you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”

After a chorus of criticism, Nugent responded with an equally anti-Semitic diatribe:

“Just when you hope that mankind couldnt possibly get any dumber or more dishonest, superFreaks rise to the occasion. What sort of racist prejudiced (piece of shit) could possibly not know that Jews for guncontrol are nazis in disguise? “NEVER AGAIN!” Anyone? Anyone?? (Are you fucking kidding me?)”

He later added:

“The NEVER AGAIN battlecry was universally embraced by all good people who will make sure another Holocaust never happens again. Freaks have plummeted to whole new low. Plummet on punks. Plummet on. Meanwhile I adjust my yamika at my barmitzva playing my kosher guitar. My dad killed nazis & saved Jews in WWII. Eat me.”

Putting aside that this rant has become barely intelligible, Nugent’s hateful views are breathtaking. While he has been a darling with some on the political right, this posting exposes him as a true lunatic. I suppose that paranoia can be traced back to Nugent’s Cat Scratch Fever hit:

“Well, I don’t know where they come from but they sure do come
I hope they comin’ for me”

  1. There is no need to take the TN Litmus Test more than once. It works the first time, all of the time; 100% guaranteed.

  2. This is something slightly more important than whatever Ted Nugent said;



    An excerpt:

    “We refer to “family engagement” as the systematic inclusion of families as partners in children’s development, learning, and wellness. Engagement is enabled by positive relationships between families and staff in the institutions where children learn. The goal of family engagement is to support family wellness and children’s learning and development.”

    Pretty words. I would copy and paste more excerpts but being a PDF makes that difficult. Yes, you can read this and be lulled by the benign sounding ‘for the common good’ rhetoric but if it does not creep you out, something is terribly wrong with your instincts. If you have not watched the videos I posted more than once from the Chinese women who is trying like hell to warn us that what she left China for is happening HERE through Common Core, then you may just be duped into sleeping through this like everything else.

  3. In light of this rant of yours on a previous thread, Ralph, your renewed unhinging right here is not surprising. You and Netanyahu take from the same well, conflating Israel with Judaism, when MOST Jews distinguish between the two. If I can take a Ted Nugent attack on Obama as solely an attack on Obama, you can take a Ted Nugent attack on specific Jews as an attack on specific Jews, not on Israel or all Jews. Grow up and stop whining, especially in light of your willingness to trash others.

    This Jonathan Turley article is another anti-Israel piece of clap-trap crap written by an anti-Israel leftist for other anti-Israel readers. Naturally, such an article is necessarily short on facts and analysis (if any can be found at all) but loaded with leftist anti-Israel propaganda.

    Of course, it’s not just about Israel, but also about Jews. As Martin Luther King, Jr. correctly put it at a presentation to people from Harvard in 1968, “When people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You’re talking anti-Semitism.” (Yes, I now that the leftists have attempted to try to discredit this quote, but documented evidence supports it.)

    Thus, leftists like Jimmy Carter have called for a plan to deal with carving up Israel that Carter himself has called the “final solution.” Yes, he used the same words that Nazis used because Carter is actually one of the more honest anti-Semites and enemies of civilization in that he doesn’t attempt so much to hide what he’s all about, just like his soul-mate David Duke could be called “honest” in this regard.

    But let’s get back to the subject at hand. The source relied on for the above article is Haaretz, a worthless, leftist rag that would be just fine if Israel were to be destroyed. The fact that Haaretz even exists in Israel is proof positive that Israel is a democracy. But let’s put that aside.”

  4. I might as well add one more proof of the TN Litmus Test:

    Hildegard: “Sorry but you’re wrong. He just dares to call out the bad guys EVEN IF THEY’RE JEWISH! How radically courageous is that? I believe he’s challenging us- pushing our buttons daring us to do the same.”

    The TN Litmus Test: 100% accuracy guaranteed.
    Thus it is written. Thus it is ever so.

  5. Two individuals – to cite just a few here — prove the accuracy and reliability of the Ted Nugent Litmus Test, as they attempt to protect, shield, defend, or otherwise deflect criticism of Nugent’s statements.

    Paul C. Schultze: “po – it is the same problem as “is being anti-Zionist being anti-Semitic?” Nugent has described a group of people (named and shamed). I think he is opposed to a specific group of people, not all Jews.”

    po: “I am now confused…if Ted takes Israel’s side against Hamas and Palestinians, is he really antisemitic…?”

    The TN Litmus Test is unfailing. Thus it is written. Thus it is ever so.

  6. Ralph Adamo “The end result of all this is that the only people in Nugent’s corner are Neo-Nazis, so you’ll have the David Dukes of the US applauding him, but nobody else.”

    Sorry but you’re wrong. He just dares to call out the bad guys EVEN IF THEY’RE JEWISH! How radically courageous is that? I believe he’s challenging us- pushing our buttons daring us to do the same.

    If he criticizes a white woman for ANYTHING, he’s a misogynist, but that won’t stop him.
    If he criticizes a black man for ANYTHING, he’s a racist.
    If he criticizes a black woman they’ll have to flip a coin or he’s just guilty of both, but that won’t stop him.
    If he criticizes a Jew, he’s rabidly anti-Israel and anti-semite.
    If he criticizes a white man, he’s justified.

    “The fact that the NRA has not condemned, nor criticized him in any way also will have the impact of weakening support for the NRA…”

    Wrong again. Like Donald Trump’s popularity keeps rising, so will his, and so will the NRA’s. Just look up the increases in gun sales after every so-called terrorist attack..

    “…. as many of the strongest Second Amendment defenders have soundly and broadly attacked Nugent for his anti-Jewish and anti-Israel rant.”

    You say many of the strongest 2nd Amendment defenders? How many is many? The ones they find to put on mass media? Where do you find these many?

  7. As I indicated, the Ted Nugent case is now the perfect litmus test for defining you. If you honestly believe that Nugent’s statements are vile, then you are unlikely to be a Neo-Nazi. But if you don’t find Nugent’s statements to be objectionable, then you are certainly a Neo-Nazi. Naturally, supporters of Islam, as well as your every day David Dukes, have no problem with Nugent’s statements, and are quietly — if not openly– applauding him. The very statements made by posters to this article prove that this litmus test is 100% accurate. Thus it is written. Thus it is ever so.

      po – it is the same problem as “is being anti-Zionist being anti-Semitic?” Nugent has described a group of people (named and shamed). I think he is opposed to a specific group of people, not all Jews.
      My point exactly, Paul. I do think that Nugent, though himself a poopypants, made an argument that is not wholesale cut and dried.
      AS you said, in both cases he targeted some individuals among the larger group…just as he did when he targeted Obama, not black people.
      Those trying to enforce a subjective litmus test are the antisemitic ones for trying conflate the few with the many.

      Your litmus test, Ralph, is not THE litmus test, it YOUR litmus test.
      And to revisit my point above, unlike Nugent who seems to distinguish between the few and the whole, you, friend, easily and eagerly target the whole without any reserve at all. You have said worse things about other groups than Nugent, how do you reconcile that with your current outrage?

    2. Ralph Adamo – it is good you have joined us. I know that you think you can suss out Neo-Nazis, but you are not using the right test or really any test. You are making it up out of thin air.
      However, making a blanket statement like you have is exactly what Ted Nugent did. So, if Ted Nugent is a Neo-Nazi you must be a Neo-Nazi. See how that works?

      Actually, since you think Nugent is anti-Semitic, you think EVERYONE on this blog is anti-Semitic. That is a huge leap. A leap that cannot be made successfully. JT tried it, but he was wrong.

      Nugent selected a small group of Jews, named and shamed them. You kinda selected a group on this blog but for some reason did not name them, however you tried to shame them. This is the coward’s way.

    You are right. Ali was willing to go to jail for his beliefs, and was sentenced to five years, but did not serve it as the SCOTUS overturned the conviction. He did lose almost four years at the peak of his career, so either way it’s pretty clear that he was committed to his beliefs, unlike poopypants Nugent.
