Ted Nugent’s New Op-Ed Is Racist, Even For Ted Nugent

Ted Nugent, always the spokesman for the downtrodden white man, is angry. He’s angry that the media isn’t racist enough, and amidst calling black men thugs, a plague, criminals and high school dropouts, who were raised by single parents, he urges black people to quit voting for Democrats.

He begins his latest Op-Ed in World Net Daily by lamenting the fact that the media hasn’t released a description of the shooter that wounded the Ferguson, Missouri officer. They actually have:

The suspect is described as a black male with dreadlocks, 5’11”, wearing a dark shirt and dark pants. The suspect is still at large.

Despite having claimed not to have seen a description, Nugent assumes that “police are looking for are black males between the age of 15 and 25.”

Oh, but that’s not the only assumption:

It would also be a safe bet the two thugs being searched for were raised by a single parent, have criminal records, are high school dropouts, don’t have jobs and are very likely to be members of a gang. Just a random Nuge hunch.

Then he goes on to quote the myth that the “overwhelming majority of violent crime” is conducted by young, black males. It is true that more African-Americans are caught and convicted, but that just demonstrates an unjust justice system. Only about one to two percent of African-American males commit violent crimes in any given year.

The blame for what he calls “the plague?” Liberalism.

It is deaf, dumb and blind liberalism that has shoveled over $20 trillion into Fedzilla’s welfare crack programs over the past 50 years. Their big lie is that this was all done to eliminate poverty. What it really has done is waste this gargantuan pile of money while doing nothing to eliminate poverty, but in fact, increase it.

The bullet-proof truth is that our hard-earned tax dollars were torched by Democrats to create a permanent voting block out of black Americans. Money is the bait, and they took it, hook, line and sinker. Now President Obama has proposed shoveling another $10 trillion over the next 10 years for more Fedzilla welfare crack.

It’s easy to analyze the very real problems in the African-American community from the perspective of a rich white guy. Of course, his answers are two-dimensional, at best. Maybe we should all look at the real reasons why.

Poor African-Americans, like all poor Americans, are often trapped in a cycle of poverty. The majority of people who receive assistance are employed. Many have more than one job and no time to receive a better education. Add the fact that African-Americans are profiled and stopped at nearly every step. They are targets for the police. They are discriminated against in job searches. African-American men are put in prison for non-violent crimes at a much greater rate than are white men. Once out of prison, they can’t even vote, let alone find a job to support their kids.
