Surprise! Ted Nugent has lots of opinions about the state of American race relations

The outspoken firebrand/victim of feline-born illness Ted Nugent showed up on Nick Cannon’s podcast yesterday and offered his reaction to the outcry following the George Zimmerman verdict.

Among the things Nugent put forth was a dog-based analogy on how he thinks racial profiling should be implemented:

“I think when you use the word profile, if a Dalmatian has been biting the children in the neighborhood, I think we’re going to look for a black and white dog,” the rocker and NRA board member posited. He strengthened that airtight logic with a personal anecdote: “We played the Milwaukee state fair a couple years ago and these black mobs were just attacking white folks coming out of the fair. And over and over again I watch the news and here’s a rape and here’s a burglary and here’s a murder in Chicago. Twenty-nine shot. Twenty-nine blacks shot by 29 blacks. At some point you got to be afraid of black and white dogs if the Dalmatian’s doing the biting.”

He went on to confirm that he simply is “not buying any claim of black oppression. We have a black president, a black attorney general, black Supreme Court justices [Ed. note: we currently have only one], we have Nick Cannon, we have the most respected and revered black leaders and entrepreneurs and CEOs and entertainers. There is no limitation to anybody of any color, any race, any ethnicity, any sexual orientation if you put your heart and soul into being the best that you can be, to speak clearly and show up early and produce more than the competition. I don’t care where you’re from, you will be the American dream. Case closed.”

Case closed indeed. You can hear Prof. Nugent’s remarks for yourself in the clip below, courtesy of Media Matters:














That’s not all, either. The Nuge also hit up Massachusetts radio station WXBR this morning, where he took Stevie Wonder to task for his decision to boycott Florida.

“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?” asked Nugent, who is clearly constantly saddled with overwhelming concern for the well-being of Chicago’s black youth. “Are you kidding me? What is this, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? 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 DOJ, from the FBI, 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?”
