Not sure what rock Ted Nugent crawled from under this weekend, but once again he’s focusing his energy on the wrong things. In a recent sit-down on a syndicated conservative talk show, the right-wing rocker and gun rights nutball said the survivors of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting in Parkland, Florida “have no soul.”
New York Daily News writes:
During an appearance on The Joe Pags Show, the Republican guitarist described the student gun reform advocates “as mushy brained children who have been fed lies.”
“They’re actually committing spiritual suicide because everything they recommend will cause more death and mayhem,” Nugent continued. “Guaranteed.”
Teen activists like David Hogg and Emma Gonzalez have drawn the ire of the far-right, with political commentators and government officials taking to the airwaves and social media to publicly lambaste them.
Nugent’s thin-skinned response to the peaceful protests led by the Parkland survivors and a nationwide call to examine gun rights sensibly has the conservative entertainer’s name trending on Twitter and catching blows in the process. We’ve collected some of our faves below and on the following pages.

Ted Nugent is blaming the “enemy” for veteran suicides: President Barack Obama.
“Here’s your job, Republican Party,” Nugent said over the weekend in comments posted online by Right Wing Watch. “Twenty to 25 of those guys kill themselves every day, and they haven’t told you why and they haven’t told anybody else why but they told me why: because the commander-in-chief is the enemy.”
Nugent was speaking at the Republican Party of Maricopa County, Arizona’s Lincoln Day Dinner, where he had been introduced by controversial sheriff Joe Arpaio, the website reported.
His remarks come as a new report finds that increasing rates of veteran suicides are not being caused by deployment to Iraq and Afghanistan.
Nugent made similar comments nearly two years ago to conservative radio host Alex Jones.
At the time, Nugent said veterans were taking their own lives “because they are in absolute frustration and heartbreak that their boss, their commander-in-chief, violates the Constitution that he has made an oath to, while their hero warrior blood brothers are being blown to smithereens and blown up while executing their oath to the same Constitution that the president, the vice president and the attorney general violate.”
The classic rocker has a history of controversial statements, with the president as a frequent target of his ire. Last year, he apologized after calling Obama “a subhuman mongrel.” Nugent has also called Obama “an evil, dangerous man who hates America” and said in 2012 that he would “either be dead or in jail” in a year if the president was reelected.
