Ted Nugent Claims to Practice 'Indian Tradition' More Than Many Indians (Video)

Several Indian tribes have cancelled concerts by rocker and NRA board member Ted Nugent because of his history of making racist remarks.

Nugent appeared on Glenn Beck's radio show on Friday (video below) to brag about how good he has been to Native Americans, noted RightWingWatch.org.

Nugent told Beck that he had been invited to Indian schools for 40 years to teach young Native Americans about the "bow-hunting lifestyle" and being "clean and sober."

"And my lifestyle, as a white guy, though I'm hard to accept that designation, is more in the Indian tradition than many of the Indians themselves," stated Nugent, reports Salon.com.

Nugent then denied calling people "unclean vermin."

“I have a spiritual blood-brother relationship with these Indians and then the left literally creates the nastiest, hateful lie they can, put quotes around words attributed to me, Glenn, claiming that I called my red brothers ‘unclean vermin,’ which I never said in my life. They created that out of whole cloth,” added Nugent.

However, later in the interview, Nugent admitted that he had called the protestors at his concerts “unclean vermin."

Nugent failed to mention his ugly history of racial insults that have been documented by MediaMatters.org.

Nugent has called President Obama a "subhuman mongrel," used the N-word about black people and lectured the black community to be "honest, law-abiding."
