The Anti-Defamation League on Monday called on musician and gun rights advocate Ted Nugent to remove a photo compilation posted to his Facebook page showing the faces of prominent Jews who support gun control.

Titled “So who is really behind gun control?” the image shows the 12 politicians and activists each with a small Israeli flag and their names superimposed.

Among the faces featured in the post were former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, California Sen. Dianne Feinstein, New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Dan Gross, president of the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

Some of the familiar faces have not so familiar captions accompanying them. Bloomberg’s image claims he’s a “Nanny State trouble maker and 9/11 Israeli agent.”

“Know these punks,” Nugent’s Facebook post read. “They hate freedom, they hate good over evil, they would deny us the basic human right to

self defense

& to KEEP & 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!”

Nugent didn’t create the image, which has been featured on anti-Semitic websites in the past, the ADL noted.

“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. Regardless of one’s views on gun control, this kind of scapegoating of an entire religious group is completely unacceptable and completely divorced from reality,” said ADL CEO Jonathan A. Greenblatt.

Nugent, a board member of the National Rifle Association, came under fire in January 2014 for similar mischaracterizations when he compared film producer Harvey Weinstein to Nazi Germany’s minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels.

The same month, Nugent called President Barack Obama a “subhuman mongrel.”

Nugent’s Monday image in just a few hours after being posted garnered some 2,342 likes, 1,030 shares and 574 comments, many chiding him for posting the image linking Jews to the gun control debate.

Rocker Ted Nugent rocks Las Vegas ‘for Chris Kyle …in defiance of all the pieces of SHIT

Nugent rocks Las Vegas ‘for Chris Kyle … in defiance of all the pieces of [expletive]’

Ted Nugent, conservative rocker, roused a Las Vegas crowd with an inspiring rendition of the National Anthem — and with a patriotic expression of support for slain U.S. sniper Chris Kyle.

“Freedom isn’t free,” Mr. Nugent said, during a performance at the Outdoor Channel’s 15th annual Golden Moose Awards, The Blaze reported. “This is dedicated to the heroes of the military. God bless the military warriors, especially the snipers. God bless the snipers. This is for Chris Kyle and in defiance of all the pieces of [expletive] who don’t get it.”

Mr. Nugent was just recently in the news for praising a photo of Kid Rock holding a dead mountain lion.

“HAIL my MotorCity boy KidRock for saving all those muleteer elk & livestock by whacking this magnificent mountain lion,” he wrote in a post on his Facebook page, a few days ago.

Ted Nugent, ‘Motor City Madman,’ still sounds off

One of Michigan’s claims to fame still maintains a cult-like following at 66

Motor City Madman Ted Nugent is equally at ease pontificating with profundity and profanity.

Ted NugentWhether you like him or not, he’s one of Michigan’s claims to fame, and at 66 still maintains a following. Because of an injury, I was unable to meet with Nugent in Las Vegas during the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show, but I asked my good friend and former “Huntress” photographer, John Beath, to pop in on him with some questions.

Nugent tends to splay his words like buckshot without a choke, and this time is no disappointment. First, he loads up on his love for Michigan.

“I will always be a Michiganiac,” Nugent said. “I was born and raised in Detroit. My musical and my neighborhood roots run very strong. I go back to Michigan every year for October through November.

“We moved to Texas 13 years ago because of a number of different circumstances. We lost our home to a terrible poison mold infestation, and we became very sick. The only place at that time to treat the condition was in Texas.”

Then, Nugent takes aim: “Texas is a great state. In fact, I would say Texas is the greatest state in the nation. Hunting regulations there are based on science, not social regulations like Michigan.

“For example, I just had both my knees replaced, and in Texas I can sight in my rifle or shotgun or any gun I want from the seat of my Polaris. That simple act is a felony in Michigan. I mean that’s just too bizarre to even explain.”

And Nugent busts the collective clays of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

“Mourning dove is the No. 1 hunted species on planet Earth,” he said. “They provide more family hours of recreation and more revenue and game harvest than any other species. Now, Michigan produces more doves than they do pheasants, woodcock and quail combined. But for some reason doves are illegal to hunt.Ted

“That is so stupid. It is an indictment that the Michigan DNR and the citizens would make the No. 1 game species in the rest of world illegal in the great hunting state of Michigan.

“You would think Michigan doesn’t need the millions and millions of dollars and revenues dove hunting produces. Plus, it’s the most delicious fowl you’ll ever sink your teeth into. The situation is shameful. It’s dishonest policies like these that made me not want to move back to Michigan.”

Beath inquires whether Nugent’s hunting philosophy has changed over the years.

“I believe that my quality of life will be determined by the quality of air, soil and water,” Nugent said. “This truism resonates with intellectual and honest people. The only place quality of life, quality air, soil and water can come from is quality wildlife habitat: the woods, the streams, the bogs, the marshes and the swamps in the green areas of our beloved state of Michigan.

“And it is the hunters, the fishers and the trappers that sounded the alarm when the Industrial Revolution began destroying this habitat, which produces quality air, soil and water.

“When I was growing up, Lake Erie would catch on fire. That’s just crazy. The duck hunters and the trappers sounded the alarm. Industry was raging out of control. Now Lake Erie is the most revered, solid walleye and bass fishery in the world, co-existing with industry.”

Nugent explained: “When you have a day that you can breathe well, get good water and good agricultural productivity, not only should you thank the farmers and ranchers, you should always thank the hunters, the fishermen and the trappers for sounding the alarm so that wild still exists. They are the alarm sounders as well as the financiers of the good habitat that produces deer, turkeys, muskrats, beavers, eagles and songbirds.

Nugent“Organizations like PETA and the Humane Society of the United States do nothing but obfuscate. They’ve never saved 1 acre of land or restored any species — they just lie and say doves are too small to hunt. Meanwhile, we still eat shrimp — which are a lot smaller than doves.

“They have a philosophy, a false philosophy. I operate from a science standpoint that works to save the wilderness.”

Nugent is riled up. He might think Texas is the best state in the U.S., but he still loves Michigan.

“I’ll always be the Motor City Madman, there’s not a damn thing you can do about it. I still prefer my incredible Motown rhythm and blues every year in Michigan. And all my blood brothers that love to hunt and fish and trap and put their heart and soul into being productive Michiganders, they’re still my good friends. I still love the Motor City.”

Cheers!

Thanks to readers who voted for my friend, Larysa Switlyk, of “Larysa Unleashed” for the 2015 Sportsman Channel Shot of the Year Award. She won — and wants to thank you.

“I have to thank my fans for voting because it wouldn’t have happened without them, and for the sponsors and people who believed in me from the beginning,” she said. “It was a goal of mine from the very start to win an outdoor award on my own television show. I’m living proof with hard work and dedication you can turn your dream into a reality. Go ahead and unleash your dreams this year.”

Switlyk sneaked into the halls of the Shooting, Hunting, Outdoor Trade Show five years ago to learn about the outdoor industry. She set a goal to get her own national TV show and to win an award within five years.

Not many people have the dedication and focus to accomplish that on this level, but she did it. Congrats!

You can catch her on the Sportsman Channel at 2 p.m. Sundays and at noon Wednesdays.

These Libs Tried To Silence Ted Nugent

on JULY 26, 2014( 1 )

Source: Western Journalism

After an Indian tribe in Idaho cancelled a planned Ted Nugent concert at its casino earlier this week, detractors in other states have joined the effort to compel organizers elsewhere to call off his upcoming shows.

One such initiative, focused on a performance this weekend in Oshkosh, Wis., got a response from the outspoken conservative rocker.

“I take it as a badge of honor that such unclean vermin are upset by me and my positive energy,” he said in an interview published by the Appleton Post Crescent.

The performance, set to be part of a music festival called Waterfest, was first targeted by protesters who published a petition online to prevent his appearance. A local penned a letter to the editor demanding Nugent be kept out of the festival, a sentiment echoed by critics just days before he is set to perform.

In addition to the Idaho cancellation and protest in Wisconsin, the Post Crescent reports that a Texas town paid him to stay out of a recent Independence Day show; and another demonstration against an upcoming concert is set for New Jersey in coming days.

Nevertheless, the 65-year-old star said the backlash has no bearing on the dedication he has to his craft.

“Put your heart and soul into everything you do and nobody can stop you,” he said. “Sometimes you give the world the best you got and you get kicked in the teeth. Give the world the best you got anyway.”

In typical Nugent fashion, he used the forum to personally address those who have been attacking his character.

“By all indicators,” he asserted, “I don’t think they actually qualify as people; but there has always been a lunatic fringe of hateful, rotten, dishonest people that hate happy, successful people.”

Amid the recent criticism, Nugent offered his gratitude to his fans and the men and women in uniform he has so often worked to support.

“I have been blessed to be welcomed into the lives of U.S. military heroes forever and have come to know the serious price paid for freedom and the American dream,” he said. “I have vowed to these warriors that I will put to use to the best of my ability those freedoms and rights that they have sacrificed to provide we the people in this sacred experiment in self-government.”

He concluded that every citizen can do his or her part in protecting the rights so many have died to preserve.
