Ted Nugent called himself the “antithesis” of a racist in his regular column on Rare recently, writing instead that President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder are the real racists.
Nugent wrote that by denying the findings of the FBI, Department of Justice and an entire Florida state investigation regarding the Zimmerman trial, both the Attorney General and President made a judgment based on race and not content of character.
In past writings, however, Nugent called Trayvon Martin a “dope smoking, racist gangsta wannabe” and an “enraged black man-child.” His accusations against the President and Attorney General are considerably hypocritical considering the epithets he gave Martin based on race.
The Inquisitir pointed out Nugent’s comments were exceptionally offensive, given they were directed at a dead underage boy.
Nugent continued to comment on Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and other black panthers calling them “racist scam masters” and their followers “stupid.”
Nugent has been under fire since the Zimmerman case for making a handful of racist comments about the African-American community, and some have called for his resignation from the NRA Board of Directors.
The singer’s article went on to describe the many disappointing qualities America is now associated with, like the food stamp “scam” and gun-free “slaughter zones."
