Ted Nugent Blames Connecticut School Shooting on "Politically Correct Culture"
Rocker and NRA board member Ted Nugent blamed America's “politically correct culture” for the school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut in an op-ed for the Washington Times.
Nugent also lamented that traditional family values "have been under siege for decades by our culture of contempt"
Nugent wrote in part:
Some blabbermouths already are using the Connecticut school massacre to promote their anti-gun agenda even though more gun laws won’t prevent a psychotic from getting a gun and killing us.
... The ugly and dangerous truth is that we live in an embarrassing, politically correct culture that exalts and rejoices in the bizarre; aggressively promotes an “anything goes” value system; and vilifies, condemns and mocks traditional societal values and customs at every opportunity.
... More laws and more restrictions won’t fix our culture. The problem we face is much deeper and more insidious. What ails us is a spiritual bankruptcy of cultural values that actually matter. More laws and restrictions can’t cure that.
... As with most things, the cure to this mess begins and ends with the family. Traditional family values have been under siege for decades by our culture of contempt. In the absence of a solid family, the whole thing slowly unravels and rots.
