Ted Nugent has become the poster boy for outrageous commentary over the last few years and he kept up that “honour” in a couple of recent interviews.
The Detroit rocker said in an interview on WXBR in that Stevie Wonder’s decision to boycott playing in the state of Florida due to the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin verdict a “brain dead” decision.
You’ve got to be kidding me. So 700 black people, mostly young children and young people were slaughtered in Chicago last year by black people, and not a peep out of Stevie Wonder. Are you kidding me? What is this, ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’? How brain-dead do you have to be? How strangled by denial, how dishonest, how cheap do you have to be to focus on a clear-cut case where all the evidence, from the DOJ, from the FBI, from the army of investigative specialists in Florida determined that George Zimmerman acted in self-defense against a life-threatening attack by hoodlum, dope-smoking Trayvon Martin? And you’re gonna focus on that clear and universally accepted act of self-defence, but ignore the black-on-black slaughter that’s happening every day in this country.

I will pray for Stevie Wonder and all these other numbnuts who think that Trayvon Martin’s life is more important than the tens of thousands of slaughtered blacks at the hands of blacks… I don’t even know what to do with that information. What a soulful man Stevie Wonder once was. How do do you go from being one of the most soulful people in the world, to being absolutely soulless?
Nugent continued ranting on a podcast hosted by Nick Cannon where he called Martin a “dope-smoking, dope-peddling, gangsta wannabe, Skittles hoodie boy”, going on try and justify racial profiling by saying “I think when you use the word profile, if a Dalmatian has been biting the children in the neighborhood, I think we’re going to look for a black and white dog. At some point you got to be afraid of black and white dogs if the Dalmatian’s doing the biting.”
