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. Ted Nugent is a blowhard.
    The problem is, it is not just Jews who are against gun rights, there are many non-jews in power that are against it too.
    So picking on the jews for this is anti-semitic, because there are so many other prominent targets out there to pick as well.
    You can be sure there are also many Jews in power that are extremely pro-gun rights advocating too.
    Again, associating the jews with one reprehensible position ignores all the other combinations.

  2. Dear Sailor: Just to make this clear TER owned and worked on a cattle ranch. He and Ted Nugent have nothing in common.

  3. Incoherent and angry, yes.

    But Nugent’s rant is also accurate.

    The coalition of Second Amendment haters can all be accurately described as: east coat, liberal, wealthy, and Jewish.

    Up to the reader to decide what descriptor he chooses.

    Interesting how the critics yell “anti Semitism”, but ignore the accuracy of Nugent’s statements.

  4. So Nugent’s un-eloquent point is to stop those pushing for infringing our 2nd amendment rights. Did I miss JT’s post about the racist POS Beyonce giving props to the Black Panthers and the BLM movement? Oh, not to mention the very public support for her performance by FLOTUS?

  5. People are uncomfortable with the truth because of Hitlers monstrous acts. It is the same as the blind eye towards the black crime rate because of white guilt.

    This is an example however of what is working behind the scenes to remake the world.

  6. What is it about “cowboy hats”? You have dorks like Ted Bundy, Ted Nugent, Teddy Roosevelt, who are not cowboys, do not have cows, and who know nuthin bout birthin babies, who wear so called cowboy hats. Birds of a feather flock together.
    Weeny, weeny, bo beanie.

    1. SailorPeet – Teddy Roosevelt spent 3 summers in ND raising cattle. He is well thought of in that area.

  7. From wikipedia. On Teddy Boy Nugent:

    In a 1977 High Times article, Nugent stated that he took crystal meth and defecated in his pants in order to avoid being drafted into the Vietnam War.[39] Nugent reaffirmed this in a 1990 interview with Detroit Free Press, stating that “a week before his physical, he stopped using the bathroom altogether, virtually living inside his pants caked with excrement and urine”.[40] In other interviews, Nugent has denied this claim, stating that he dodged the draft by enrolling at Oakland Community College to get a student deferment. However, his Selective Service classification record shows ratings of 1-Y and 4-F for 1969 and 1972 respectively, indicating ineligibility for military service under established physical, mental, or moral standards, rather than student deferment.[41]

  8. In May 1933, Nazi Deputy Führer Rudolf Hess gave German immigrant and German Nazi Party member Heinz Spanknöbel authority to form an American Nazi organization.[4] Shortly thereafter, with help from the German consul in New York City, Spanknöbel created the Friends of New Germany[4] by merging two older organizations in the United States, Gau-USA and the Free Society of Teutonia, which were both small groups with only a few hundred members each. The FONG was based in New York but had a strong presence in Chicago.[4] Members wore a uniform, a white shirt and black trousers for men with a black hat festooned with a red symbol. Women members wore a white blouse and a black skirt.[5]

    The organization led by Spanknöbel was openly pro-Nazi, and engaged in activities such as storming the German language New Yorker Staats-Zeitung with the demand that Nazi-sympathetic articles be published, and the infiltration of other non-political German-American organizations. One of the Friends early initiatives was to counter, with propaganda, the Jewish boycott of German goods which started in March 1933 to protest Nazi anti-Semitism.

    In an internal battle for control of the Friends, Spanknöbel was ousted as leader and subsequently deported in October 1933 because he had failed to register as a foreign agent.[4]

    At the same time, Congressman Samuel Dickstein – who many years later was revealed to have been a Soviet spy – was Chairman of the Committee on Naturalization and Immigration, where he became aware of the substantial number of foreigners legally and illegally entering and residing in the country, and the growing anti-Semitism along with vast amounts of anti-Semitic literature being distributed in the country. This led him to investigate independently the activities of Nazi and other fascist groups, leading to the formation of the Special Committee on Un-American Activities Authorized to Investigate Nazi Propaganda and Certain Other Propaganda Activities. Throughout the rest of 1934, the Committee conducted hearings, bringing before it most of the major figures in the American fascist movement.[6] Dickstein’s investigation concluded that the Friends represented a branch of German dictator Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Party in the United States.[7][8]

    The organization existed into the mid-1930s, although it always remained small, with a membership of between 5,000–10,000, consisting mostly of German citizens living in the United States and German emigrants who only recently had become citizens.[4] In December 1935, Rudolf Hess ordered all German citizens to leave the FONG and recalled all of its leaders to Germany .[4]

  9. Grow some whiskers. Cut the sleeves off a hunting shirt and wear it. Wear a so called “cowboy hat” which is bowed up and inward. Wear boots. Scream and rant into a microphone. Tell your momma, tell your pa. You just come from Arkansas, oh Yeah. Baby whd I say?

    Mister New Gent, is full of s…..

    German American Bund is rearing its ugly head. See the photo on your screen.

  10. Ted Statutory-Rapist Poopy-Pants Nugent is a full-blown anti-Semite in addition to being a run-of-the-mill racist and xenophobe. What a surprise. You wasted a slew of perfectly good Internet today, professor.

  11. Disappointed at those who would give this a pass for any reason or stifle their criticism at “it’s free speech….”

    It is angry hate speech that, while thankfully protected by our Constitution, needs to be called out and rebutted by other speech. The man outed himself as a racist thug, despite my shared belief in the importance of gun rights. But when good people don’t call evil out, evil thrives.

    He has the right to speak trash and hate, but let’s do our part to at least identify it as such — and call a Jew-hater a Jew-hater. That’s what the author of the First Amendment envisioned, after all…..

    1. Rawf Mawf – are you anti-Semitic if you hate certain Jews or all Jews. Ted Nugent calls out a small group of Jews as nazis. Not all Jews. I am against Muslims who blow people up, not all Muslims.

      You have to use your critical thinking here.

  12. It’s a fine group you’ve assembled here, Professor.

    There’s some similarity between the GOP fostering the rise of Trump and your fostering the rise of the right wing lunatics over here.

  13. Breathtaking? Please, he isn’t eloquent, but I had no problem reading it. He may have had too much alcohol. He’s against gun control, as am I. I do not own one, but I don’t want to lose that right.

  14. Well you know he makes some good points but these particular Jews are not the only bad guys. Ted is just one of those ‘types”, the type being an obvious Enneagram personality type 8 with a 7 wing, same as Alex Jones. They have their good points, they have their self-defeating bad points, but one thing is for sure, “What you see is what you get”. Very aggressive, very outspoken, but a big pussy cat underneath.

  15. We know who is a Nazi in disguise …well, I guess he’s not really in disguise! That’s just one of the thing that is good about free speach you know who the jerks are!

  16. I think he is targeting a particular group, just as those who say being anti-Zionist is not being anti-Jewish. I give him a pass.

  17. Freedom of Speech. After all, we can say anything about Muslims. Charlie Hebdo cartoons mocking Islam were deemed a sacred right. So, is it freedom of speech for one, and not the other?
