Former rock star and current NRA board member Ted Nugent recently lashed out at the late Trayvon Martin.

In an article written for, Nugent called Martin a “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe” who took the “violent route."

Nugent also rewrote what happened between Zimmerman and Martin with heavy exaggeration: "George screams frantically for help as Trayvon Martin pummels his face and head furiously, inflicting damaging and potentially life threatening wounds."

While Zimmerman had some surface cuts and abrasions, he did not have any life-threatening wounds and was not even rushed to a hospital.

Nugent also spoke for the late Martin Luther King Jr.: "Martin Luther King Jr. is rolling over in his grave that he sacrificed his life for the cause of judging people by the content of their character instead of the color of their skin, as so many of his own race carry in self-destructive behavior while professional race mongers blame everything on racism."

Nugent failed to mention that Zimmerman pursued Martin by car and on foot, going against the directions of a 911 operator.

Instead, Nugent lectured American parents on how to keep their kids safe: "Teach your children to not attack people for no good reason whatsoever. Conduct yourself in a responsible, civil manner, and everything will be just fine. Try to kill someone and that someone just may be exercising his or her Second Amendment rights and you could get shot."

UPDATE: Nugent tells black people to be "honest, law-abiding" on the Alex Jones Show.
