Ted Nugent isn’t holding back his thoughts on those protesting against the National Rifle Association, including the Parkland shooting survivors.
During The Joe Pags Show Friday, the longtime rocker and NRA board of directors member slammed what he calls “the poor, mushy brained children,” who organized the March for Our Lives on March 24, which advocated for tighter gun control.
“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. I really feel sorry for them because it’s not only ignorant and dangerously stupid, but it’s soulless,” Nugent said.
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. 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… These children can’t be critical of any of the propaganda that they’re fed and that’s just sad.”
He also defended the NRA itself after Pags played a clip of Emma Gonzalez, one of the march organizers, speaking to CNN about politicians accepting “blood money” from the gun rights organization.
“The level of ignorance goes beyond stupidity. 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,” Nugent said. “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. So once again, this poor pathetic individual is a liar.”
