Ted Nugent's Conservatism and thoughts about gun laws and the second amendment are not a secret to anyone. But now he is expanding on his rhetoric and spreading statements about Jewish legislators with his Facebook post being referred to as Anti-Semitic.
The "Catscratch Fever" singer is a staunch supporter of the right to bear arms and is on the Board of Directors for the National Rifle Association. In addition, he is an opponent of animal rights and is a well-known hunter.
Nugent recently posted a message to Facebook that included a photo grid of Jewish politicians. The photos were labeled with Israeli flags as well as descriptions such as "Jew York City mayor Mikey Bloomberg." "Gave Russian Jew immigrants your tax money" was written under a photo of New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg.
While the photo grid was not created by Nugent as it has appeared earlier in other places, he did caption the photo with the following: "Know these punks. 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!"
The Anti-Defamation League has found the post to be anti-Semitic and is asking for Nugent to remove the post. The CEO of the ADL, Jonathan A. Greenblatt, commented on the post, "This 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.
"It should go without saying that anti-Semitism has no place in the gun control debate. You should be ashamed for promoting anti-Semitic content, and we hope that good people on both sides of the gun control debate will reject his tactics and his message. We hope you will have the good sense to remove this share immediately so that it does not spread virally across the Internet."
