Like most bigoted narcissists, Ted Nugent enjoys pretending he actually likes minorities every once in a while, mostly whenever he thinks doing so would be politically convenient at the moment.
Nugent, who once said black people should be profiled like vicious dogs, decided that he is pro-black again this week, and by extension, that his political opponents must be anti-black in turn.
This is the gist of his latest WorldNetDaily column.
"Say what you will, but the destruction of black America is the result of Fedzilla's $16 trillion and 50-year-old so-called war on poverty," he writes, "which created a cycle of dependency, destruction and culture rot for black America.
"America doesn’t have a 'gun violence' problem but rather a 'liberal denial' problem whereby liberals support continuing the insanely expensive and totally destructive policies and programs that have caused a cultural and social cancer to metastasize in black America for far too long. Show me a social or cultural problem, and I will show you how liberalism either created the problem or exacerbated it."
Beyond name-dropping the war on poverty, Nugent once again fails to name a single example of liberalism being the problem (unless he wants to blame liberals electing a black president for the Right's sudden rekindled fascination with white nationalism).
"It is fascinating to wonder what Dr. King would have said about the culture and social rot that plagues black America today," he muses.
Considering one sided elected a black man to the presidency and the other side responded by spending five years screaming that he can't be the president because he was born in Kenya, it should be a safe enough assumption where Dr. King's allegiances would be found.
