Rocker and National Rifle Association board member Ted Nugent recently used Martin Luther King Jr. Day (Jan. 20) to slam and lecture black people in America.
Nugent, who writes a monthly column for the conspiracy website WorldNet Daily, entitled his latest op-ed, "What Would Dr. King Say About Black Culture?"
Nugent, who recently signed a deal with the Outdoor Channel, tried to slam African Americans by mentioning a viral video of a black toddler who cursed at adults and was cursed at by his elders. Both the toddler and his 16-year-old mom have since been placed in foster care.
The street thugs who made the video and the little boy are black. This is important to note as the nation gets ready to celebrate the life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on Jan. 20.
Nugent then stated how various adult family members of the boy have been arrested for crimes.
After the video went viral, the 2-year-old boy, his 17-year-old mother and two other children were finally removed and placed in protective custody. Should the boy ever be reunited with his family of gangsters, he will either end up in prison like his grandparents or dead like his dad.
...The statistics across black America are even uglier. Though just 13 percent of the population, black Americans make up 50 percent of prison populations.
However, Nugent failed to mention the proven racism of the US justice system, the resurgence of debtors' prisons in the US, how America has more people locked up than any other industrialized nation and the millions made from warehousing Americans in private prisons.
Nugent also wrote:
Say what you will, but the destruction of black America is the result of Fedzilla’s $16 trillion and 50-year-old so-called war on poverty, which created a cycle of dependency, destruction and culture rot for black America.
Nugent went on to deny the high numbers of gun violence in the US and blamed social programs for somehow causing black crime and social problems:
America doesn’t have a “gun violence” problem but rather a “liberal denial” problem whereby liberals support continuing the insanely expensive and totally destructive policies and programs that have caused a cultural and social cancer to metastasize in black America for far too long. Show me a social or cultural problem, and I will show you how liberalism either created the problem or exacerbated it.
It is fascinating to wonder what Dr. King would have said about the culture and social rot that plagues black America today.
To honestly celebrate the legacy of Dr. King, black America would have to admit to the self-inflicted destructo-derby they are waging and begin to tell their liberal Democratic slave drivers to take a hike.
Nugent failed to mention his own racist attacks against black people.
According to MediaMatters.org, Nugent has said that black people have a "mindless tendency to violence." He once lectured African-Americans to solve the "black problem" by putting their "heart and soul into being honest, law-abiding, [and] delivering excellence at every move in your life." Nugent also suggested that black people should be profiled like dangerous dogs.
