"I don’t hate black people, they just have a skin disease that affects their behavior”

While speaking this week with conservative radio host Joe Pags, National Rifle Association board member and musician Ted Nugent declared that anyone who doesn’t like him must hate America and everything the country stands for. “There’s nothing more anti-American than the freaks that hate me,” Nugent said, after going on a rant against Hillary Clinton and “Bernie Mao Zedong Sanders.” “As the freaks hate me, I go, ‘Man, I really am right all the time,’” he said.

“Like, take black people, for example,” the Motor City Madman then turned to African Americans. “You’ve got these people, right, and they’re always on about oppression and racial inequality. And they’re flat out lying. Because I’ve never seen a race of people that has so much in common with white folks, and at the same time, hates their guts. You can’t tell me that’s good for this country.”

“And Obama is also on Trump’s assassination list. Because not only is he half-black, which proves my aforementioned point, but he’s also Muslim. And I don’t care what he says he is, the fact is he’s not fooling anyone. So, therefore, I don’t hate black people. At all. They are people too, just like us. And I recognize that. They just have this weird, permanent skin disease which somehow affects their behavior.And they lie. Like, really a lot. And that’s the part that bothers me. To be quite honest, I kind of even feel sorry for them a little bit,” Nugent said.

And this man was a speaker at the Republican convention, my gwaad !!! and some seriously think Black folks should join them?? yes I know , I know we all got deplorables in our baskets, as anyone who follow my political posts know very well I ain't no Clintonite , and have long ceased to be a fan of Obama right around the two year mark of his first term and got progressively worst, but sorry can't do it , you guys have waay too many ppl like this not only in your basket but as your public face, atleast keep your deplorables chained up in the basement like Dems do.
Jill don't have much of a chance and that pot head libertarian said one too many loopy sht for me to be on his team..so my vote will likely go to Jill.

Wow. He's crazy. So self-righteous. Calling people of color-a people with a disease. He does need to be locked away-he has thought too much of himself and had so many worshipers that he has lost all sensibility. Wonder if he is senile or something else because, although he has always been outspoken and a bit off, this comment is beyond the pale.

Now, I love freedom. Freedom of speech, freedom of assembly. I am a massive fan of these and other liberties afforded to residents of nations which at least pretend to have some righteous elements in the construction of their law. But the right to these things comes with some hefty responsibilities. If you have the right to speak freely, you have the responsibility to ensure that the speech you engage in is of high quality, contains facts not falsehoods, and is not driven by the least, but instead by the most noble elements within your mind and heart.

What Mr Nugent has done there, is essentially abuse the rights he has, with the aim of causing yet more division between people, than was already the case. So, he is free as a bird to make the statement he made, but he has failed in his responsibility to keep the quality and legitimacy of his utterances, at a high, not a low ebb.

I know people are allowed their own opinions, and the American 1st ammendment protects freedom of speech but,


They are people too, just like us. And I recognize that. They just have this weird, permanent skin disease which somehow affects their behavior.And they lie. Like, really a lot.

How would someone think that is acceptable? Given the current political climate in America with police shootings of non-whites and the protests, etc.

I don't mean they should be censored or anything, but, what part (or perhaps lack thereof) of their brain thinks that is an 'ok' think to say?

It's like saying, "I'm not a racist, I just don't like people who aren't the same colour skin as me or believe in what I believe".

I suppose that's what I was trying to get at -- that fine line between freedom of speech and speech that does nothing but incite anger, hatred and segregation.

I would like to believe that, and I would hope we don't get judged by our deplorables, but your party heads keep giving him and guys like him the Mike to represent you.

This is why freedom of speech is such a beautiful things. He has the right to speak his mind, and say whatever he likes (as long as it doesn't rise to the level of out-and-out hate speech).

We have the right to listen to what he has to say, to judge it as a loony rant, and then to tune him out completely in the future.

It seems that there are (far too) many celebrities out there who think that just because somebody sticks a microphone in their face, to ask them questions about their area of expertise (whether it be singing, football, acting, etc.) - that they are credible spokespeople/experts on every other issue on earth (politics, the economy, the environment, race relations...you name it).

Put a sock in it Ted!

Is it really new, though? America has always had a large number of people who felt like this.

And remember, there wasn't even a stigma against openly being in groups like the KKK in the 50s and early 60s. I think that a lot of this crap simply was minimized in public, but it still was being said & implemented behind closed doors.

In a way it's sad, but I think it's improved by leaps and bounds. Hopefully we're seeing the dying gasps of this crap, and 50 years from now, "racial superiority/inferiority" will be as ridiculed as "flat earthers".

Very true but even back then, folks when in front of a camera or a Mike had tact.
