Ted Nugent on Trayvon Martin Case, Verdict: Teach Your Kids Not to Attack People!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

It was inevitable: Ted Nugent is sounding off on the George Zimmerman verdict and what he feels is the real lesson in the death of Trayvon Martin:

Teach your children not to attack people!

Ted Nugent on Piers Morgan

Nugent, the legendary rock star and equally well-known gun rights activist, ripped the state of Florida for even bringing charges against Zimmerman.

He even went a step further and lambasted President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder for using the case to promote a “racist agenda.”

“It was a clear-cut case of self-defense," Nugent said. "I’m very relieved and hopeful that there is justice in America the ‘not guilty’ verdict came in."

“Number one, the whole thing is a tragedy - that he was charged with any crime after all the evidence that the law enforcement professionals ascertained immediately.”

"When we the people do get all the evidence, then we see self-defense as the pure thing that it is," he added on Dennis Miller's radio show.

With the N.Y. Daily News linking Martin to hate crime victims, and everyone from Kim Kardashian to Beyonce lamenting the verdict, Ted has a different take:

"I think that the real travesty here is that the prosecutor and the judge and the whole so-called justice system was cowed and pressured by just racism personified."

"It pains me deeply to even have to say this, but when the president and the gun-running attorney general get involved to push for a racist agenda, it’s bad for America. It puts us back.”

According to Nugent, the Trayvon Martin trial was just part of what he called ugly race relations, matching only those going back to the civil rights era.

“I’m 65 years old this year, Dennis, and I’ve never seen such ugly race relations since the white and black water fountains in Detroit went away,” Nugent said.

“We were on an even keel. We were on the upgrade. I think racism for all practical purposes was gone five, six years ago and it’s back with a vengeance and it breaks my heart."

"But here’s the ultimate lesson, if everyone would take a deep breath - I hear a lot of squawking that parents go, ‘Well, that could have been my kid.’"

"Well, here’s a little update for you: Teach your children not to attack people. Thank you very much. And again, I take no joy in criticizing my president.”

Do you agree with Ted's take on racism and the right to self-defense? And do you think the entire case was fueled by the media and/or politics?

You will play the race card everytimeyou don't get your way- That is one reason that whites don't want anything to do with you. You are violent- black on white crime is double the other way. You are weak minded because you surround yourself with people who are racially motivated- they influence you. Your public behavior is terrible. Everyone has a reputation but blacks reputation is well known. . I would rather be around an illegal.

YP i agree. blacks as a whole are a disgrace. they all do the same thing. they cannot think for themselves. they continue their bad behavior and expect society to accept it. until blacks act normal, everyone will always suspect them of no good.

92% of black murders are commited by blacks. 14% of white murders are commited by blacks. trayvon should have gone home and not confronted zimmerman. jury got it right.

why is it that blacks can carry guns and kill people and when zimmerman carries a gun, that he is legally allowed to, for the sole purpose of defending himself, that this is an issue? the govt should sue every black peron who is acting up as a result of the zimmerman verdict!

He was going home. Trayvon was afraid of Geo. Geo. was following him. TM did not know who GZ was. To TM, GZ could have been stalking him to assault him. If GZ had just stayed in his vehicle and let the police do their job, TM would still be alive. But GZ could not control himself. Who is the adult in this situation? TM had no reason to attack GZ. He had not weapon. He was scared. GZ was determined that TM was not going to get away, which meant that TM would have been safe in his dad's home. GZ could have used one of his flashlights to subdue TM and not his gun. TM did not have a deadly weapon.

what is so amazing is that blacks kill blacks every single day. blacks act like out of control crazy people every day. yet when one non-black feels threatened due to an out of control black thug and defends himself, all of black america thinks it is so awful. until blacks start behaving properly, of course non-blacks will fear them and defend themselves!

Black mothers teach your black sons not to attack people and bash their skulls into the pavement....teach your sons not to follow innocent women out of malls and abduct and rape them.Okay? Are we straight on that now? Then and only then will there be peace ----do it!

i totally agree. blacks continue to act out and never will understand why they are not trusted by all other races. blacks are the only race that can behave badly and if anyone says anything against them, those people are considered racist. the country is sick of dealing with blacks and their problems.

First off it TM had beat GZ there should have been DNA on TM hands you cant beat someone and Not have NO marks on your hands so for all u dumb asses that believe he beat him fuck off....

TM had bruised knuckles.

@ A little guidance

You do not know that is what happened? Why did GZ not immediately identify the voice on the recording as his, instead of saying that does not sound like my voice. The reason was because it was not his voice, it was TM. Seems to me if GZ was the one screaming for help. That the simple answer would have been, 'Yes, that is me.'

Try to use your imagination and reverse this crime. Black guy follows white teen. Chases when teen runs away. Fights back when teen turns and confronts him, and LOSES even though he outweighs teen by 100 pounds.
Black guy pulls out gun and shoots unarmed teen.
Verdict? What do you think.
You can't take race out of the equation when the killer profiled the victim because he was black.

gillian you are an idiot. no black person would ever use their own time to be on neighborhood watch. blacks are the ones DOING the crime, not PREVENTING it! a black would never turn another black into the police. this case would never be reversed because blacks do not care about their communities. check out every major city in america and you will see that the places where it is mostly black are all ghettos filled with crime. get YOUR facts correct.

All you do is generalize and beak off about 'The Blacks'. Racism and stupidy are a lethal combination.If you had a brain, a heart and some courage, you just might be able to change the nasty beliefs that lead you to paint every person not like yourself as a criminal. I bet my life that you are no ANGEL!

Nugent is as revelant as used toilet paper. He has an alcohol-pickled brain, and Alzheimer Disease. He uses these moments to try to improve his lacking musical career... Hope he chokes on the nozzle of his gun as his disease becomes more aggressive... Will not be long, not much brain matter there...

I can't believe so many people were fooled by this ridiculous case. If you hear a story about a 17 year old and they are displaying pictures of a 12 year old, you should know somethings not quite right. All he had so say was "hey im staying with my dad Tracy Martin on whatever st, I'm Trayvon." Instead he was hostile and combative. To an adult, in a place you are visiting. You don't call the cops on someone you are going to kill. Why not kill them and then report killing an attacker?

It eas not up to Trayvon to explain anything to this Freak pointing a gun in his Face.

nugent is right, trayvon would be alive today if he wasn't a thug. blacks needs to learn that their black-thug lifestyle is not only unappealing but also detrimental in cases such as this.

Zimmerman left his house and chased down a teenage boy. He had a gun. Of course Trayvon and anybody else with a brain would fight when their life is in danger. Americans always want to get involved with other countries human rights but when it comes to black people, they believe that the only good black person is a dead black person, murdered by a white person. Go figure. And Ted Nugent is a racist anyway so when it comes to issues like this, he needs to shut up.

No kiddind, eh? Why are Ted Nugent and Ann Coulter even allowed an opinion on anything that might require real thought or compassion?. They should be hunted and roasted on an open fire.

Actually he was a neighborhood watchman. Its not like he got a wild hair to run out of his house and gun somebody down. Also, are you kidding me? Fight someone with a gun? For real? You sir are an idiot.

@ J

Actually he wasn't registered with the National Sherriffs Association who runs the neighbourhood watch.
Zimmerman is a thug who got away with his crimes, including attacking a cop and abuse, because his father is a magistrate. Get your facts right.

I disagree PM, blacks have the reputation they have due to their repeated bad behavior. No other race has the bad reputation that blacks have. You don't hear anyone calling Asians thugs.
