Rock star turned right wing commentator, Ted Nugent, accused celebrities who vowed to boycott Florida over its “Stand Your Ground” law of being drug abusers and said they might as well boycott Chicago, too.
On Andrea Tantaros’ Tuesday radio show, Nugent said celebrities boycotting Florida, like Stevie Wonder, Jay-Z, Madonna, and Kanye West, live in “a fog of denial” because their brains are “fried.”
“When you live in a fog of denial, and usually it is inspired by just a lifetime of substance abuse — you know with all the lies about dope being a ‘victimless crime’ — I think you’re listening to the victims of this dopey crime because their brains are fried,” Nugent said. “They’re either fried on substance abuse, and all of them know who I’m talking about — the guilty can feel guilty and only the guilty should feel guilty. But there’s also a fog of denial when you’re surrounded by yes men all your life, where you're having people picking up after you and you have people serving you.”
Nugent added that celebrities might as well boycott Chicago while they’re at it, arguing that residents there are “left out of their cages to commit more brutal murders and rape and carjackings and slaughter of innocence.”
Rather than suggesting harsher sentences for violent crime, Nugent puts his faith in the hands of an armed public.
“When you start bending over spiritually and intellectually to people who take care of you all day, you can pretend by boycotting a single city with a stand your ground law that somehow you don’t have to boycott Chicago, where 700 people are slaughtered every year because they’re not standing their ground,” Nugent continued.
Nugent also claimed it’s hypocritical to focus on the Trayvon Martin case while people are being “slaughtered” across the country, “particularly in the gun free zones, like Chicago.”
“What the opposite of stand your ground?” Nugent asked. “Give up?”
