During a recent Facebook Live stream, famous rock music veteran Ted Nugent has made a new statement about his political status and responded to the criticism that he’s anti-racist personality.
As you might already follow Ted, he’s considered as one of the most political activist figures of the rock music scene and sending regular posts, making live streams and interviews about the political status of the United States. Back in November 2020, Ted Nugent has shared yet another post on his Facebook account and claimed that there is no such thing in America as systemic racism and cops were trying to subdue a violent.
After making a lot of statements about George Floyd’s death, he was accused of being racist by many authorities and the music industry. In his latest Facebook Live video, Ted Nugent claimed that he has paid homage and reverence to many black heroes and that makes him an anti-racist. He also named many black stars like Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley as reference points.
Here is what Ted Nugent said in his live stream:
“Everybody who pays attention — not the ones who call me a racist, but the people who are actually honest and pay attention know that I have paid homage and reverence to the black heroes of music all my life, which means I’m the anti-racist. So if you find somebody who calls Ted Nugent a racist, you are looking at a subhuman piece of shit who lives a lie.”
“I’m a living, walking, breathing passionate music lover that was in the eye of the music storm at the most important time in the history of music, coming right out of the electrification of the guitar by Les Paul. And how Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley and The Ventures and Duane Eddy and Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis and Elvis Presley took that black music, and we celebrated it in song.”
