Ted Nugent is known for his controversial stance on, oh, everything, but in his recent rebellion against what most of rational thinking society deems true, the Detroit rocker said in an interview that he thinks Stevie Wonder is “brain-dead” and “soulless.”
The statement comes about Wonder said he would play Florida because of the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin verdict.
Here’s what Nugent said:
“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-defense, but ignore the black-on-black slaughter that’s happening every day in this country.”
Nugent went on to say that he 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.”
“What a soulful man Stevie Wonder once was,” said Nugent. “How do do you go from being one of the most soulful people in the world, to being absolutely soulless?”
