Jewish groups (and VT) slam Ted Nugent for anti-Semitic gun control post

We simply hate Nugent for draft dodging, crummy guitar playing and his Wall Street ass kissing

(JTA) — Right-wing rocker Ted Nugent came under fire from Jewish groups for an anti-Semitic Facebook post blaming prominent Jews for pushing gun control.

On Monday, Nugent shared a graphic featuring images of 12 Jews — including former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Democratic New York Sen. Chuck Schumer — branded with images of Israeli flags below the words: “So who is really behind gun control?”

Alongside the graphic, which has previously appeared on anti-Semitic websites, Nugent wrote:

“Know these punks. They hate freedom, they hate good over evil. They would deny us the basic human right to self defense & to KEEP AND BEAR ARMS while many of them have tax paid hired ARMED security! Know them well. Tell every1 you know how evil they are. Let us raise maximum hell to shut them down!”

Jewish organizations quickly condemned the post.

“Ted Nugent has a long history of being an equal opportunity offender. But his latest share on Facebook, making the outrageous suggestion that Jews are behind gun control, is nothing short of conspiratorial anti-Semitism,” said an Anti-Defamation League statement signed by CEO Jonathan Greenblatt.

Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Wiesenthal Center, said in a statement: “Ted Nugent has every right to advocate against gun control laws. However he won’t be getting a free pass for his anti-Semitic bigotry. There are Jews on both sides of the gun control controversy and Nugent knows it. He owes our community an apology. He can start by removing the offensive graphic and if he won’t we urge Facebook to do it for him.”

In the graphic on Facebook, the Jewish politicians and activists are labeled with descriptions, such as “Jew York City Mayor Mikey Bloomberg” and “Sen. Chucky boy Schumer.” Over Emanuel’s face, the text reads: “Served in Israel’s army during Gulf war.”

Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz and U.S. Sens. Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein, both California Democrats, are also among those targeted.

Nugent, the voice of 1970s hits like “Stranglehold,” is an avid hunter, a board member of the National Rifle Association and a strong supporter of the Republican Party. He has a history of making inflammatory statements.

In response to the recently released Michael Bay film “13 Hours” about the highly politicized attack by Islamist militants on the U.S. Embassy in Benghazi, Libya, Nugent said President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should be “tried for treason and hung.”

    You see the absence of comments under Amy “Soros” GoodMan’s offerings. Let’s hear it for nationalism Amy.

    Dave Duke has a new video Ted Nugent VS the ADL – Who is Behind Gun Control? It’s also on YouTube.

    I don’t see anything wrong with Ted’s comments – just an opinion – like Fox News – nothing real about what they broadcast also – just opinion.

  5. captain obvious  February 10, 2016 at 12:42 am

    precisely what George Orwell was warning us about with his book 1948 that they MADE him re-title “1984” because the “fiction” was exactly ON POINT exposing their agendas.

    with the DC sabotaged real economy, young fathers who cannot gain employment losing family cannot pay child support, are offered military as an out from jail, how convenient? you want higher education, hello military? this was started deliberately with Reagan/GHWB cutting all kinds of help for education same time they began sabotaging the REAL productive economy and importing the DOPE they reverse psychology advertized with “just say no!”.. as a response-retaliation to Vietnam and draft opposition, and they started it not long after.

    Would people please stop using the term “gun control?”

    The real issue is “gun prohibition/gun confiscation.” Prevent people from obtaining guns/take guns away from people who already have them.

    The term “gun control” was deliberately chosen to sound reasonable and non-threatening. The term is deliberately deceptive; its use is a psyop. If we repeat that term, we are falling into a trap.

    “There are Jews on both sides of the gun control controversy…”

    So what? What Ted Nugent posted was that prominent, powerful Jews are in the position to influence and to enact “gun control” laws.

    It was factually correct. As others have noted, the truth is anti-Semitic.

      Martin, again A++ observation! they ARE using bogus medical-psychological grounds to deny citizens their God given Constitutionally reminded right to self defense, all the time! questioning a “medical diagnosis” and wanting a second opinion CAN get a person listed as some kind of psychological uncooperative refusing treatment (ask Dave Sarti), to disarm them at whim.

  8. Arrow  February 9, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    Attaboy Ted… Truth shall set you free! What in his statement is anti-Semitic? Semite is defined as Hebrew/Arab. He was speaking specifically about the Khazarian Zionist pukes that are mentioned in the article… not Semitic people. His remarks don’t even refer to Israel (Isis, Ra, El), even though Bibi and AIPAC claim to be acting in the interests of the Israeli people. Complete bullshit. C’mon VT… don’t lower yourselves to their (Mainstream Media) level. Doing so diminishes the quality of your message and results in questionable discernment.

  9. Hwysong  February 9, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Nugent’s not a “crummy” guitarist. I know because I am a crummy guitarist.
    Whether or not Nugent’s skills are comparable to Duane Allman or Eric Clapton
    is irrelevant to his comments. Nugent just stated a fact. Jews should demand
    an apology from Bloomberg, Schumer, etc…for making all of them look evil.
    Nugent has nothing to apologize for. As guitarists go…Zakk Wylde is as good
    as I’ve heard.

  10. Beydety  February 9, 2016 at 8:03 pm

    Anti Semitism my arse!

  11. Brittney duke  February 9, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    Uncle Ted is right of course. These guys always cry anti-Semitism when anybody criticizes anything about israel. the reality it is this people who are pushing the agenda, they own the congress, the central banks, the mainstream media, hollywood. they are the ones behind the islamification of the west when israel has its own anti immigration laws. these people are the scourge and believe they have some right to rule over everyone. Jesus was not a jew, he was a Judean so don’t let them use that crap. Look at the history of ww1 and ww2, the belfour declaration, they sold the German’s down the river for $$$$ and they are doing it to the USA. don’t ever ever give up your guns, the world will be a much worse place, support NRA!

  12. Tigrr  February 9, 2016 at 5:39 pm

    More and more I do not trust these Jewish Groups. Their cries of anti-semite are a ploy to intimidate and control others. Period. Nugent has a right to Free Speech. Why does VT not recognize that?
    I’ve been to Jewish banquets and heard all the WASP, Catholic, Irish, and other jokes. As a whole they are anti-American, anti-everyone-not-Jewish. American Jews are more tolerant. Israel Jews – rarely so. Look how they treat their neighbors!! Lies are policy, thievery too.
    It is the &^%$ Jewish lobbiiests who control current and past WH residents and Congress. They bribe Congress with the billion Congress gives them in free Foreign Aid. ( They just gave Neten-yahoo $50 BILLION dollar check a few months ago.) Your Tax Dollars “at work” destroying America, destroying the world for their and Bush/Cheney agendas.
    Keep at it Nugent!!

    Since when are the Khazarians Semites ?
    Which of the Khazarians in the picture are not pushing removal of personal firearms from Americans ?
    Residents of the USA who pledge 1st allegiance to Israel are treasonists to the USA.
    Which of the persons in the photo do not pledge 1st allegiance to Israel ?

    Printing the statement by Mr. Abraham Cooper, with the phrase, “our community” is an insult to the integrity of the purpose stated by VT. Until Mr. Cooper corrects the lie of “6 million gassed”, stops the genocide of Palestinians- the genuine Semites- and discontinues the Apartheid of Judaism vs Goyim he has NO RIGHT to criticize a patriotic American. The Simon Wiesenthal Center is a covey of international crooks, who sought out Whistle-Blowers for punitive action while overlooking murderers such as Dr. Hubertus Strughold, who was elevated to Chief of Space Medicine, NASA.

    Oh, yeah. Here we go again. Po, po me. They’s pickin’ on po little me because I’m_____________. (fill in the blank, jewish, black, female, etc.) It is a well known fact that most jewish people have little or no respect for the Goyim. As Netanyahu so eloquently put it, “The Goyim (that’s us) only exist to serve Israel. These dirt bags pictured on Ted’s Facebook page, or whatever it was, deserve whatever criticism comes their way. I see no problem with what Ted says. Keep on rockin’, Ted, and keep your powder dry.

  15. Leno  February 9, 2016 at 2:20 pm

    VT signals, Nugent fans…triggered!

  16. captain obvious  February 9, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    oh yeah lets slam him for telling the TRUTH, while we’re at it why dont we DNA blood test every person accusing him of being “anti-semite”. if they are NOT “semite” then jail them for fraudulent slanderous racist hate speech attempting to destroy someones life, when they are NOT “semitic” at all! seems to me every one of the political figures pictured ARE some kind of traitorous criminal anyway, would it matter if they all claimed to be hari-krishnas?!

    • captain obvious  February 9, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      and that last line, wake up would ya!
      hillary IS a traitor who used insider information to become a member of the board of directors of Walmart to sell Chinese goods after NAFTA-GATT, pushed Walmart into every little city possible to bankrupt multi thousands of smaller retailers cancelling millions of those related JOBS, on top of all the skilled labor jobs that got “outsourced”. oh TED is a bad guy for saying multiple felon hillary should be put on trial? are you F’n kidding me?!!

  17. theSpirit  February 9, 2016 at 1:31 pm

    When you are defending the ADL, there is a problem. Ted can say whatever he wants, that first amendment just pisses a lot of people off, likewise you have the opposite view expressed by the writer. As a performer, if you have seen Ted, he never cheats his audience, and it is fun. If you grew up in the 70’s it was a Free for All.

  18. seafrog  February 9, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    Ted Nugent crummy guitar player? Big negative! Maybe if you’re into Boy George or coitus culture club. So what – he’s calling it like he sees it on gun control – many of us feel the same way. It’s not enough anymore for you Zionistas to just cry “anti-Semite” anytime one of yours gets “called out”. Rock on Uncle Ted!

  19. Donald Moore  February 9, 2016 at 1:03 pm

    Ted Nugent is the man! They say if one Jew is against Gun Control, Ted should lump all Jews in one bag, but I go by if a majority of Jews are, especially a super major (60%) like it is, then Ted is right. I don’t cater to political correctness, since the Jews are for gun control and Ted called them on it then let them cry to their hearts content, I sure won’t. America stays free as long as we have to 2nd Amendment!

  20. PallMall  February 9, 2016 at 12:23 pm

    Yawn to cries of anti-semitism. Who gives a shit? Either the photo is accurate or it isn’t.

    More to the point, and far more accurate, is that each one of those pro-Israeli Americans pictured screech their support for Israel, military support: guns, ammunition, war planes, whatever.

    So they have no problem with guns. Just guns for their fellow citizens here.

  21. Amelius  February 9, 2016 at 10:24 am

    Nugent might not be the best guitar player and there’s nothing good to be said about Wall Street ass kissing, but really, who cares if he told his Facebook friends to keep an eye on Israelis inside America? These Jewish groups want an apology? Well I wouldn’t apologize to them, until they apologize to America for nuking the twin towers and for lobbying to send American soldiers to die fighting Israeli wars.

    I also agree that somebody should face justice for Bengazi and I don’t expect that film to do the truth any justice, just more Hollywood propaganda.
